On The 2nd Day Of Magic, Ozwald Gave To Me…

Christianne is the best and we admire her dedication to not peeking at any of the items in advance - while they were being created or when she received her box.  We are loving her unboxings and hope you are, too!

If you don't already follow us on TikTok, you should! Lots of bookish fun… right… HERE!

We hope you enjoy your cozy Calcifer Candle!


When creating a winter advent calendar, you have to have a candle! Nothing brings the cozy vibes like a warm, smoked-scented, holiday fire, and there is no heart-warming flame more inviting and timeless than Calcifer! 

“The demon at length fell to singing a gentle, flickering little song. It was not in any language Sophie knew—or she thought not, until she distinctly heard the word “saucepan” in it several times—and it was very sleepy-sounding. Sophie fell into a deep sleep, with a slight suspicion that she was being bewitched now, as well as beguiled, but it did not bother her particularly.”

-Diana Wynne Jones, Howl's Moving Castle

While Marina may have “sparked” the idea of having a candle in the box, it was an easy bit of teamwork that helped narrow down the inspiration and the scent. We're all fans of our Calcifer's Hearth candle and we hope you like it, too!

"I've always thought that different scents transport the mind to a different place or time. The smell of this candle brought my mind into a warm, comforting cabin in the woods, with a fireplace lit and a cozy blanket."



“I was lucky enough to get an early sample of this candle and started using it immediately. While the vision of Calcifer makes me think of bacon and eggs, I very much prefer the smell of this candle. It is so cozy, and warming, and I am a sucker for cloves.”



We always love working with Flick the Wick Candle Co. (@flickthewick) and we feel they nailed this scent perfectly. It is warm, and inviting, and is the perfect way to warm up your own little castle during the colder months. 

There have been some really fun and amazing unboxings online and we love them!
