TOP TEN TUESDAY
April 4, 2017
It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was fandom related and with the mention of merch, I immediately went to candles!
The other day for a #bookstagram photo prompt, I ended up photographing my Dregs-inspired candles, which is a lot and a little all at the same time! Leigh Bardugo is one of my favorite authors and so I tend to collect a LOT from her books (other editions, candles, etc) but since I’m candle-crazy, I thought it would be fun to share some that I have and some that I still want! (Because I have to eventually get them all…)
This Ketterdam candle smells like the wafting coffee scents from the Crow Club to entice people inside. I own a mini version of this and it’s delicious!! Plus that label is gorgeous. I definitely need to own more candles from Kaylan’s shop!
Ugh, look how gorgeous. These candle labels are seriously to die for! There are so many Dregs/Six of Crows candles out there now that I’m still looking for more Grisha Trilogy candles to add to my collection too.
I’ve had my eye on this one since this shop opened but still haven’t shelled out the money for it yet. I love the darkness and the crows on the label. Let’s be honest, the book it was inspired by and the label are a vast majority of why I buy a candle!
I always need more Kaz and this candle looks divine! I love this candle shop too — I have one inspired by Ollivander’s and can’t wait to get more! This one is definitely on my list.
I recently did a candle exchange with Nali from A Court of Candles and I’m so glad I did! She actually sent me minis of Kaz AND Inej so now I have TWO more candles for my collection!!
KAZ | Wick and Fable
Wick and Fable has some gorgeous label images and I love this smoky crow for Kaz. I recently purchased one their monthly boxes and was so impressed! I definitely want to try some more candles from this shop.
Matthias is pretty much my favorite character in the Dregs duology. I loved him from the first book and need all the Matthias candles!
I love that Fragranced Fandoms makes a Mal candle! I’m not personally a shipper of Alina with The Darkling and I’m a sucker for friends-to-more romances so I may need this Mal-inspired candle!
Meraki Candles has an amazing selection of the candles of my heart. Look at this gorgeous Heartrender candle!! And it has a waffle on it! Ugh, I just love it.
Raquel from The Melting Library has so many ingenuous candles and Dirtyhands was actually the first candle that I got of hers that wasn’t included in a subscription box. I love the way it reminds me of Kaz and has a little bit of a masculine scent on top of the scents as a whole. They blend together really well!
And of course, I can’t leave you without a plug for my own candle shop. (Maybe only a little bit sorry.) I wanted to come up with a candle that was unique and there weren’t any Inej candles out there when I came up with The Wraith! Inej doesn’t really have a scent since she is the Wraith and all so I selected the scents from the story from her childhood. They were actually inspired by her mother but they’re all of Inej’s favorite scents so they combine for a lovely soft, floral and earthy mix in this candle.
