    Horror Inspired Candles

    from Seattle, WA

    "I am an avid fan of the horror genre and have been since I was a little kid. So when the world went into lock down in 2020, I spent a lot of time watching movies, reading books, and playing games. Eventually I began to wonder, what would it be like to physically be in one of these places. What would it sound like? What would it smell like? I tried to see if there were products I could buy to fulfill that curiosity but couldn't find any that felt right. So I decided to make them myself. 

    Each scent is inspired by a location from the horror genre and what I think that place would smell like or scents that remind me of that place. I draw from books, movies, tv shows, and video games in an attempt to bring those places to life."

    "This candle smells so good there’s a great mix of the three scents and I could totally see myself in Derry when I have it lighted. The candle arrived on time and was packed very securely so there was no way something could break. I will be buying from here again!"

    I was so excited to see a horror themed candle business! I'm a huge horror junkie and this is such a clever idea! The fragrance is there, but not over powering. It's an amazing little candle and I'm currently burning it while I work!
