It is most likely becauses the oxygen has been extinguished from the candle
Remember the 'fire triangle'? You need all three to sustain a fire. heat fuel oxygenBlow hard enough and you remove heat faster than the flame can supply it. Blow hard enough and you can even blow out a bonfire.

Your exhaled air has plenty of Oxygen left in it, though. The kiss of life relies on this.

The kiss of life relies on this.not as much, right? thats why if you partially cover a flame with the base exposed it'll still go out.it lowers the pressure at the flame, creates a partial vacuum without air/oxygen, and the flame momentarily goes out.PS: CO2 doesn't kill fire, it just removes O2 which kills the fire. any inflammable gas can kill the fire if you put it that way.
