Scent: Ancient Books & Secret Rituals
Magical incantations have existed since the beginning of time and have been recorded in stone, blood, and ink since humankind first created written language. These mystical manuscripts contain the power to manipulate the earth's elements and to summon the supernatural. From H.P. Lovecraft's tale of the evil Necronomicon, to textbooks of magic called grimoires that contain instructions on how to use talismans and create potions with herbs, to field guides on constructing protection wards against fantastical creatures, the array of spell books is vast.
This fragrance is inspired by the enchantment of a secret book of spells, the one that you dream of stumbling upon one day in a neglected basement of an old library. It has a soft well-worn leather binding and fragile yellowing pages. It smells earthy like black tea, slightly musty like old paper, and contains a deep woody richness of long forgotten knowledge. A scent like no other. Infused with natural essential oils, this fragrance captures the aroma of ancient books and secret rituals.
All Old Soul Artisan candles are 9 ounces in a unique oval hexagonal jar with 55-60 hour burn time. They are hand-blended with care in small batches with these simple ingredients: natural soy wax, cotton wick, premium fragrances, and are 100% vegan and contains no dyes, parabens, phthalates, or other toxins. They also come in a reusable jar (wax remnants wash out with soap and water!) and a lovely decorative wax seal on the lid.
Size: Each candle has an approximate diameter of 8 cm (3.15 inches), and is 9 cm (3.54 inches) tall, including the lid.
