Candle ignites. "Ooops!" batch question.

I wanted to make a larger batch of candles and apparently miscalculated the amount of fragrance to pound of wax and so my candle ignited when I did my test burn. Not right away, but the more the wick burned and the hotter the wax got during the burn, the candle began to flame up. Is it possible to just add more wax to the existing batch, remelt and repour so I don't waste so much?

I think you probably could.
