Burning Bright Library December Rep Package

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.

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!

One of my favorite of the autumn candle line. I hope it comes back next autumn!

It’s such an incredible honor and very thrilling to have been chosen for the November to January rep period for Burning Bright Library. It’s already going so fast! It’s almost over already! I love representing Marissa’s company. She’s such a lovely person who engages with her customers promptly and is so creative with her candle scents. I could gaze at the beautiful labels of her lovely candles for ages. Most of her candles are bookish, with the inspiration coming from book worlds and characters. Others are seasonal, with inspiration coming from the world around us.

For November, Marissa sent me two 8 oz candles, Cardan and Jude! These candles are based on the two main characters from The Cruel Prince who love to hate one another. The art on the candle by Noverantale is so stunning. They really capture the characters and I hoped the scents would match them perfectly.

I needn’t have worried about anything.

Cardan and Jude are PERFECT. They pair together really well! Their scents complement each other completely. And if for some reason you purchase them separately, don’t worry! They do smell lovely on their own. I’ll break down their scents and you can decide if you want one of them or both.
