RE: Tariff classification of a scented square pillar candle with plate from Vietnam.

Dear Ms. Kepler:

     In your letter dated September 7, 2007, on behalf of the Candle Lite Division of the Lancaster Colony Company, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your sample is being returned.

The candle wax consists of 60% palm and 40% paraffin wax. The wax candle imparts the essential character of the set.

The applicable subheading for the scented wax candle and ceramic plate tied with a bow will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for candles, tapers and the like. The rate of duty will be free.
