If you're a candle lover (like myself), you're in real trouble, because I'm about to introduce you to my new favorite candle shop - a BOOKISH candle shop that - wait for it - also sells other bookish goodies (like jewelry)!!! So take a deep breath, brace yourself, apologize to your wallet in advance - and say hello to Simply Sassy Things!
I received two candles from the awesome folks at Simply Sassy Things: Pemberly and Raven. I got them for an Instagram feature (you can check out my photos at EvieBookish), but I fell in love with them so completely, I decided to also spread the love via blog! Because, hello, they are AMAZING!
Pemberley -sprinkled with book stars from the pages of Pride and Prejudice
This Pride and Prejudice inspired candle is by far my favorite thing in the whole world. No kidding! It smells DIVINE. It's an English Garden scent and it's heavenly. If you ever had the chance to smell the Jane Austen Library candle, it's a very similar (if not identical) smell! The candle burns very clean (it's a soy candle) and the fragrance spreads throughout the room even before you light it up! And what's even more amazing, when the soy wax melts, the stars start floating around!!! So cool!! I love it!!!
My candle came in a sturdy glass jar with a cute lid. I have to say, I really love that this is a jar candle, it gives it a kind of classic look that goes well with literary classics!
The other candle I received is called:
Raven - Sprinkled with book stars from the pages of Edgar Allan Poe
I was pleasantly surprised to discover how incredibly refreshing this candle is! The scent of it is clean, light, breezy, very crisp in its clarity and overall very fitting! I honestly think it's just the right smell for Edgar Allan Poe inspired candle. It smells like the wind and freedom, with a promise of something unexpected and a dash of mystery. Like a Raven circling in the sky! I really enjoy this scent and will definitely be lighting up this candle while reading my collection of Poe stories and poems (I actually purchased this lovely hardcover copy just so I could take photos with it!)
These are only two of many candles available in the Simply Sassy Things store. If you go to their website, you'll discover a whole collection of book-inspired candles, from literary singles, to couple candles! There's, of course, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Gone With the Wind, The Hunger Games and many more!
