Once again Alchemy & Ink has done an amazing job with their subscriptions box. Getting all these lovely goodies just made my day and smell so good.
What I want to talk about first is the “Howl & Sophie” candle from Howl’s Moving Castle. I loved this book series and movie, and if you haven’t read or watched it- you need to. Along with the scent of the candle being dreamy, so is the artwork on the label (art is done by @irenhirrors).
Along with the above candle I also got the “The Heretic & The Cleric” candle, inspired by Wicked Saints and Ruthless Gods. This candle smells like I’d image this world to smell like, and there is no way I’m not burning this candle when I start reading Ruthless Gods.
The last candle we got was a “Crimson Peak” inspired prayer candle. I actually haven’t seen this movie, I just can’t do scary (but I love me some Tom Hiddleston). But, the caramel and tobacco leaf smell is really trying to make me change my mind about watching it.
The last three items in the box were “Volchitsa” lip and sugar scrub, which smells so yummy I want to eat it (I promise I won’t though!). Also, a double sided “soft touch” bookmark. On one side of the bookmark is a quote from Ruthless Gods and the other from Deathless. I love these kind of bookmarks, so soft and who doesn’t need more bookmarks?! Lastly, we got a sticker with the new Alchemy & Ink logo. This so great! I love the new design and can’t wait to put this on a notebook.
This was another great box from Alchemy & Ink, and I am so looking forward to getting May’s box-“Dark Academia”.
Rating of box: 5 out of 5 stars.
