Fragrance notes: Silver birch and red currant
Baba Yaga is one of the most popular characters of Slavic folklore. In many tales she is represented as an old crone who lives in the woods in a moving hut standing on chicken legs. The hut is surrounded by the skulls of her victims impaled on pikes. She's got long, sharp teeth made of iron and a grotesque nose. She flies through the woods in a mortar and uses a pestle as an oar. She sweeps away any tracks of her presence with a broom. Baba Yaga is an ambiguous folklore character in that her personality is multi-faceted in stories. She is often seen as a villain luring victims to doom by tricking them and sometimes eating them, especially if they happen to be children found wandering the woods (a cautionary tale for children not to wander). However, she can also be a helpful guide in epic tales in which she helps direct the hero of the story to their destination. Baba Yaga appears in two of the most famous Russian fairytales Vasilissa the Beautiful and the Death of Koschei the Deathless that depict her as both horrible and helpful.
Our fragrance Baba Yaga is inspired by one of the greatest folklore characters of all time. She appears in thousands of tales throughout the Slavic speaking world. In stories and art depictions Baba Yaga frequently abodes in a silver birch forest. The wonderful scent of a Russian birch forest creates the base for this fragrance. The woody and fresh aroma is blended with a touch of vibrant red currant- of which Russia is a top producer- making the fragrance a tribute to the smells of the region. This fragrance will transport you into Baba Yaga's forest to celebrate the most fascinating and frightening woods witch of Russian folklore.

i ordered two candles from this site, baba yaga and ghost realm, and i can’t even say which i like best! they both smell good and have a decent throw without being too overpowering. the craftsmanship really shows. i love the seal on top of the lid. what a beautiful touch!
I love this candle, it reminds me December!
I am really enjoying this candle. It's a brilliant blend of woods and berry. A pop of color in the frozen landscape. Going to enjoy this candle all winter!
This is a beautiful and evocative scent, truly the essence of Baba Yaga's forest. I will be ordering more!
This is a nice woodsy kind of floral and fruity scent.; It fits in with the Old Soul collection and vibe. Fruit and woods wasn't a thing I knew I needed until I tried these candles. Not overpowering. Definitely interested in another one even though I only just lit it for the first time. lolol
