Looks good... but I somehow rotate the part 180 degrees, to get its "natural" rotation (handle at bottom, flame hole at top).
Do we have any clue about the depth of flame hole? Is is of constant diameter, or stepped at some point to prevent too deep (and hard to disassemble) bar insertion?
Instead of large number of rings, I'd prefer a 45 degrees rotated 4-4ndis + 4 x 1-4chrd + 4 quads. It is much more efficient (minimizing number of triangles, 36 instead of 96!)

Do you intend to make the flame?

I don't plan on making the flame. I was interested in the candle as a general cylindrical build element and made it since it wasn't on the file tracker yet. I can try your suggestion for the bottom ring, I wasn't too happy with the current solution either.

As for the orientation, seeing it next to 20482 I decided to use the same orientation (male bar connection up).

(gun went off accidentally!)
Needs a "Minifig Accessory" category
Otherwise, I'd still prefer a 180 rotation: 20482 gets its orientation from tile heritage, but most tools, weapons, etc have their handle at bottom.

According to Studio mesh (that I believe comes from TLG, so hopefully exact), the bar hole is only 10 ldu deep and is followed by a narrower R2.5 ldu cylinder, depth 17.5 ldu.

... do you want to call it a candle? isn't it more a bar?

I agree that candle may not be the best description. But "bar" is more or less associated in LDraw jargon with R=4 ldu bars so it's not very good either...

seeing this part the first time this way,
the orientation seems upside down to me intuitively:
I would expect "stud on top", i.e. protruding cylinder on top
(although it is smaller than a stud).
I compared it to existing official part 87617.
I noticed the discussion above, but in my brain this one currently looks upside down
