Light one candle from both the sides.. It will burn completely in 30 minutes.. as it gets completely burnt then light the other candle which will then take 60 minutes to burn completely.. By doing this u have consumed 90 minutes :P

Burn a candle first and wait till it burnt half (half candle can be measured with reference to candle which was not lighted). Then light another candle and count 1 hr frm that point of time. Over all u measure 90 mins.
