Fragrance notes: gingerbread, cinnamon, vanilla


“The old woman had only pretended to be so kind. She was in reality a wicked witch, who lay in wait for children, and had only built the little house of bread in order to entice them there. When a child fell into her power, she killed it, cooked and ate it.'”
- Read Hansel and Gretel here.

Hansel and Gretel is one of the most beloved fairytales recorded by the Brothers Grimm. Set deep within a German forest, the tale is straight from the nightmares of children. First, the siblings Hansel and Gretel are abandoned by their parents due to food scarcity. Then as they wander lost within the deep dark woods, they come across a mysterious cottage made of cake and sweets only to discover the candy was placed there to lure children into the grasp of a horrific cannibalistic witch. Inevitably, the children outsmart the witch and burn her alive in the very oven she intended to cook them in. Hansel and Gretel ransack her cottage and find their way home with pockets full of jewels. This fairytale is especially popular around Christmastime due to how reminiscent the witch’s confectionery cottage is to decorated gingerbread houses.

Take a trip into the fairytale woods with this fragrance inspired by the wicked witch's cottage made of cake and candy. Hansel & Gretel smells like a frosted gingerbread house. The body of this fragrance is gingerbread, a decadent concoction of buttery graham crackers and spicy ginger, cinnamon, and clove. Rounding out this nostalgic scent of holiday baked goods is sweet and creamy vanilla frosting. Infused with natural essential oils, this fragrance is perfect for the season and a wonderful way to incorporate a dark Grimm Brothers fairytale into your holiday traditions.

Hansel & Gretel candle.

This has been my favorite candle I've ever had. Every time you light it, it smells like you just took a fresh batch of gingerbread cookies out of the oven.

Cozy and Delicious

This is exactly the kind of aroma that tricks little children into a witch's cottage: warm, spicy, and sweet. Although it could be seasonal, I will burn it year-round. Please, bring it back!
