This candle box is celebrating the holidays with a Harry Potter theme!
The info card explains the concept behind the wax melts and candle. I like that they cover both the Yule Ball and Hogsmeade in fragrance form.
Fandle Candle Co. Yule Ball Candle (9 oz.)
The scent of this candle is sweet and buttery. It reminds me of what an old-fashioned chocolate shop or ice cream parlor might smell like.
As the site explains, this candle had a jewelry surprise buried inside. After about 3 nights of burning the candle, I finally pulled the foil-wrapped surprise out!
Surprise Flower Earrings
These earrings are shaped like flowers (like a daisy where the petals are little gems). They seem like something that I would’ve liked in high school, but now, they’re just the teensiest bit too cutesy for me. The earrings were packaged inside a tiny baggie wrapped in foil, but a little wax leaked into the bag. I had to pick a bit of wax off of the earrings, which wasn’t a huge deal.
UPDATE: Thanks to MSA readers for letting me know that these are Hermione’s earrings from the yule ball!
Fandle Candle Co. Holiday At Hogsmeade Wax Melts
The wax melts smell like sweet peppermint. There’s a touch of vanilla there, too, to make sure the scent is soft and candy-like, rather than herbal, like a peppermint essential oil would be.
Both the candle and the wax melts are very… melty. They loosen up and release their fragrances easily, which is great when you’re trying to fill the room with aroma!
This box comes with a special surprise! This vinyl decal depicts a golden Hogwarts silhouette with the word “Home” cut out of it. For Harry Potter fans, this would make a lovely design to dress up a front window!
It’s nice that they include instructions for how to use the vinyl decal!
Verdict: This box is a really fun way for fans to bring the stories they love into their homes. The fragrances were festive and pretty, though I wish they looked a bit more magical (it’s Harry Potter after all!). The box is worth $19.99, which is probably about fair considering there are actually four items in the box (the candle, wax melts, earrings, and decal). Split evenly, that means each item is worth about $5.00 each—that’s probably too high for the earrings and the decal, but otherwise fair. I don’t think the non-thematic earrings hold that much value, and the experience of getting them out of the candle was more messy than exciting. If you’re a candle fan, as well as a fan of books, movies, and more, then this box could be a cool way to amp up your collection!
