bookish candles:

I own Stub Tail Candle Co. and I enjoy making bookish and fandom candles. You can find us here. 

A few things I look forward when I am finding inspiration for a candle is what does the book say. The author has already done most of the work for me by writing their amazing book, so all I have to do it pay attention. Creating a candle is hard work but I find it quite rewarding once I have this perfect beautiful candle in my position. I strive to make sure it looks beautiful but also smells amazing. Everyone loves a candle that actually fills up the room with a lovely smelling scent.

I was so excited to dive in and start creating this candle. I wanted this candle to be bold and fierce.

What does The Bird and The Blade candle smell like?

scent guide:

Plums, Wine, Smoke

This book was a bit hard to come up with something because there really isn't any scents that are described. I feel like the combination that I came up with fits the book pretty well.

  1. Wow. When did you start making candles? Fabulous! Love the post and adding the book to my TBR and your candles to my Etsy wishlist.

  2. I started Making candles a little over a year ago when I needed something to do. At the time I was looking at the possibility of losing my job and needed a distraction.
