I know for a fact that Afia puts in her soul into everything starting from getting the most organic and environmentally friendly raw materials to working hard on making the candles work like perfection. Hell, she also puts in efforts into making the best labels and matching everything so it looks like a unit. She even tries her best to make our shopping experience better by making her website as easy to use and pretty to see as possible. We Stan a woman who leaves no stones unturned to give us the best worth of our money and she does not take it lightly.
So, I ordered two 2oz candles, one lip balm and a pop socket and it arrived with a beautiful surprise. Read till the end to find out what the surprise was.
Witch and Chasseur – 2oz Black Tin
This beautiful candle based on one of my favourite books – Serpent and Dove, comes in 2oz tins and 7oz jars.
The Label: It is shiny with several hexagons in emerald, slate, black, white and ash colour with golden borders and the name of the candle written in gold too.
Colour: A brilliant Green with a sprinkle of gold stars. The tin is black.
Fragrance: Cinnamon, Butter (Sticky Buns)
Price: Rs. 160/- for the 2 oz tins and Rs. 380/- for the 7 oz jars
Audiobooked – 2oz White Tin
A candle to die for, offered in 2oz tins and 7oz jars with a very beau label that comes in various gradients of purple-violet.
The Label: A subtle purple background with holo starry foiled text, the pictures do no justice to what so ever.
Colour: Sky Blue with holo glitter.
Fragrance: Blueberry Cobbler
Price: Rs. 175/- for the 2 oz tins and Rs. 400/- for the 7 oz jars
No Mourners, No Funerals Lip Balm
The lip balm is so delicious and smooth and is completely made of 100% natural and vegan ingredients. It definitely is worth the price and is not just a collectable. It is based on six of crows and the label is also similar to the candle by the same name.
Price: Rs. 150/-
The Dregs Pop Socket
We were offered four brilliant bookish pop sockets and I obviously chose the Six of Crows one. It has a marble finish with the dregs symbol on it. I have been using it since I got it and it is quite sturdy and beautiful.
Price: Rs. 250/-
Anu’s Study Sesh – 7oz Jar
She made me an exclusive candle to help me study and be focused while I am at it. I feel so special and validated. It is one of a kind and I am the only one who gets to experience it. I love you Afia!
The Label: It is a green holo foiled labelled which looks like a paper on a clipboard with a pen on one end. It is really pretty.
Colour: Green because it is my favoured colour with glitter on it.
Fragrance: I am no expert but she did mention that she would add something like mint that will help me focus without falling prey to sleep. It smells really good though!
