Fragrance notes: absinthe and blackberry

“Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witches' mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravined salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digged i' th' dark,
Liver of blaspheming Jew,
Gall of goat and slips of yew
Slivered in the moon’s eclipse,
Nose of Turk and Tartar’s lips,
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-delivered by a drab,
Make the gruel thick and slab.
Add thereto a tiger’s chaudron,
For the ingredients of our cauldron.
Double, double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble."
- Incantation of the Weird Sisters. Read Macbeth here.

Macbeth was first performed in 1606 and is among Shakespeare’s most well-known tragic plays. Fresh from a victorious battle, Scottish general Macbeth stumbles upon a trio of witches (the Weird Sisters) who prophesize that he will be become king. Although Macbeth had no previous ambitions for such a position he quickly fell for the temptation for power. It was Lady Macbeth who planned the king’s murder that led to her husband's ascension to the throne. Due to paranoia and continued chaos-causing prophesies by the Weird Sisters, Macbeth became obsessed with maintaining power and began killing off his supposed rivals. Macbeth becomes a tyrant and cannot withstand an uprising against him and was ultimately beheaded. The story is a tale of self-fulfilled prophesies and the consequences of manipulation and unchecked ambition.

Something Wicked is inspired by the Weird Sisters in William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. A spooky blend of absinthe and blackberry. Absinthe is an anise-flavored spirit derived from plants and herbs, namely the flowers and leaves of wormwood. The spirit has a natural green color making it appear as if it came straight out of a witch’s cauldron. This fragrance is mixed with tart blackberries that gives the concoction even more of a dark edge. It is not for the faint of heart. As fervently chanted by a Weird Sister, “by the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.”

Absolutely intoxicating

I couldn't imagine what absinthe and blackberries would smell like (yes, a life in need of more adventure!), but this one definitely smells like naughtiness in a jar. It's heady and bright. The throw is strong, so once you light it, the Green Fairy has you.

I always keep a few of these on hand because they smell so unique.

Wicked and Alluring

I am so taken with this candle. I love all the Old Soul candles I have tried, but this one is totally enchanting. Perfect to burn in the evenings. LOVE it!!


The scent of this candle is nothing short of delicious!!!! Only downfall is I wish it came in the largest size so that I can enjoy it loner. Oh well. I will just order more. Brings out your inner seductress. This candle is lovely and smells just like the description. So, if you love absinthe you are truly going to love this scent!!!!!!

Gorgeous Romantic Scent

I love my Something Wicked candle. Like all Old Soul candles, the aroma is delicate, and Something Wicked has a romantic scent that reminds me of my husband's cologne. The blackberry is subtle without being overly fruity. And oh my goodness the name! Perfect for fall and the upcoming Halloween season. Definitely one of my new favorites!
