I am a brand representative for the shop I talk about in this post. I received the candles in exchange for promoting Burning Bright Library.
Hi all! If you’ve ever wanted a bookish candle for yourself or for a friend, Burning Bright Library has a wonderful selection! Use the code JADE10 in the shop through January 2019 to save on your orders!
For December, I asked Marissa of Burning Bright Library to send me two candles that were inspired by the stories that I often read. If you ever check my instagram or my goodreads page, you’ll see right away that I focus on reading fantasy novels with a smattering of sci-fi mixed in. They’re two of my favorite genres, so I had to have candles inspired by them.
These two candles bring to life some of those smells that would be found in books set in the dense woods of Ravka or the Russia of The Bear and the Nightingale and the different planets of the Illuminae series or Empress of a Thousand Skies. I love how their colors complement each other.
My first candle is Fairytales! Fairytales is a beautiful purply-pink color. It reminds me of long walks in the woods, the snow covered branches of firs blocking out the sound around me. It has a smattering of sweetness to temper the smell of pine. Officially, it smells like dragon scales, woodland trails, and misty gales. I love when the scents rhyme!
