- John Milton, Paradise Lost
The Old Soul Artisan Manifesto
by Harmony Todd
The feel of crisp pages and smell of old books fill us with nostalgia for our printed companions. We are old souls who have lived a thousand lives through reading. Bound by no book, our imagination bursts forth from the pages. With one foot on the ground and the other in the clouds, we are independent thinkers and unrepentant dreamers.
Literature is a magic mirror, a portal to the dark psyche where epic battles between good and evil exist. What is written on the pages, is from within. We are all heroes and villains. Without darkness, there can be no light and no worthwhile tale.
We embrace the darkness. We possess the shadows that few dare to gaze upon. We embody explorers of old, unafraid to traverse the dark periphery of our mind. We feel more alive because of it. Our story is far from over, our journey has only just begun.
Join us. Step into the shadows. Illuminate your darkness.
The fragrance itself is inspired by the Mad Tea Party, where all guests are, of course, completely mad! The menu consists of a freshly brewed cup of Earl Grey, with its smooth blend of black tea infused with the lemony-orange flavor of bergamot, paired with deliciously decadent almond cake, all rolled up into a single fragrance. Don't be late for this tea party!Buy now 20% off
This is the ultimate pumpkin (and autumn!) candle. Sweet and rich, but not overbearing or excessively “pumpkin spiced”. This is smashed pumpkins and covered bridges, the scent of pie and autumn air in the Hudson Valley on a cold, dark night. There is nothing artificial or generic about this one. All the magic and spookiness of October is in this candle, it’s incredible. (It is a serious pumpkin candle, so go with Samhain if you still want the magic of autumn without the pumpkin!) I am always blown away by each candles ability to transport you to a specific moment in time so wonderfully! The packaging is also absolutely gorgeous and very old world. Highly recommend this one.
Received a small one with another order and oh wow! Dark, sweet, and heady. This is a sharper scent, but rich and deep enough that it isn’t overpowering. Perfectly balanced, and exquisite for chilly, dark autumn nights. So happy to have been able to try this one!
As a side note, and as always, customer service, shipping time, and packaging are always top notch. Every candle burns evenly and has exceptional throw, every time. I just w wanted to include that this is probably the best candle company out there! ❤️
Adore this one. I wasn’t sure on cold, as the scent was a bit strong, but once it started burning, it was surprisingly smooth, and not at all overwhelming. This is a very relaxing candle, a good one to wind down with after a long day. True to scent notes, as well. All the wonderful smells of incense with no soot or smoke! I will be buying this one again for certain!
I received a tea light of this one in another order, and simply had to have it. This is a subtle scent (good throw-just not overpowering!) but once it gets going, it’s absolutely beautiful. The heaviness of patchouli and clove is exceptionally well balanced with the lighter sweetness of the violet notes. The violet is what seems to lead with this candle, really rounding out the scent, it feels very feminine. Indeed evocative of the old witches cauldron! What I love most about this company’s candles is that you can “see” the scent, if that makes sense. You’re transported to a little witch’s cottage in the woods, cooking up delightful potions. Another one knocked out of the park!
Best smelling candles I love them
I've been trying to really enjoy fall to its fullest, coziest potential this year and this candle is perfect for that. It's warm, sweet, and well-balanced-- you can definitely pick out each spice scent in it but none of them are overly dominant. I have a family member with extreme sensitivity to smell/airborne chemicals and for a long time we never had any scented candles because of that, but this candle doesn't bother her at all! So of course I just had to grab 2 more while they were still the featured scent. Cozy and delicious!! :-)
It can smell like Halloween year round when you burn a Samhain candle. Sweet and warm on the coldest of days, conjure Autumn’s crisp chill even in Summer’s heat. We love it year round.
I'm a new customer, and between the sampler and a few candles I purchased, this one is by far my favorite!!
Gifted this to my best friend and she loved it!! Smelled of baked goods during a fall night!
The tea light set was fantastic! Great way to try out many of the scents you may be curious about!!
This one smells amazing! I love all your candles, wonderful scents and stories.
I love everything about this candle. Cozy fall/winter smell. I will be purchasing the large size soon ❤️
This is my absolute favorite candle. There is something so nostalgic and perfect about the scent. When I thought the candle had been discontinued here, I paid an embarrassing amount of money to recieve it from a third party.
The scent is warm and cozy, and the pumpkin and cinnamon shine, but the molasses comes in with the sweetness. Again, this is will smell familiar, but it will also be the best candle you own.
The scent of joyful celebration, that is what
the Day Of The Dead candle is about.
Notes of tangy oranges
among spicy chili peppers.
Samhain smells like fall. I use it year round whenever I want to feel closer to the Forrest. Living in the middle of the desert, that is often!
