NOTES | This is a 9oz jar made with all-natural soy wax. Soy wax is eco-friendly and burns cleaner than other waxes. It is also easy to clean in cases of accidental spills or if you should wish to keep the jar! Each candle comes with a resealable lid.
Please note that some frosting may occur. This is perfectly normal for soy candles and does not affect the scent or burn time. Frosting is merely an indicator of natural soy wax.
Each candle is also made in small batches so there may be very minor variations in color or scent.

  1. Malene

    Love this fresh scent. It’s masculine and so damn amazing. Perfect for a rainy day.

  2. Amlys (verified owner)

    Okay, so I may be biased because I absolutely adore Nikolai, but this candle is the best. It smells like a dashing privateer who wants to take me on adventures and offer me a massive emerald that his family has had for generations, you know, nothing too specific. It’s absolutely magical and you need to get it.

  3. cmelone (verified owner)

    This scent is EVERYTHING! If you love Leigh Bardugo you HAVE TO GET THIS SCENT BECAUSE IT NAILS STURMHOND! And if you’ve never read her books, you still need this candle to add to your boyfriend candle collection.

  4. Audrey Johnson

    I got this one in a sampler, and I immediately fell in love. Manly, musky, and sea scented. It’s perfect for the wolf of the waves.

  5. Ravendesk86 (verified owner)

    This candle nails Sturmhond. It smells like the adventure on the high seas.

  6. Sunny724 (verified owner)

    This fantastic candle smells like a sexy man at sea! I swear, there is no other way to describe this delicious scent blend.

  7. ormoore (verified owner)

    I first got Sturmhond in a tin,directly before I had a NY account and I love him so much I haven’t burned it! It’s fresh, clean, and musky, but the musky isn’t too overpowering; it’s subtle. The cool, clean watery scent reminds me strongly of him. Thanks so much, Brittany!

  8. abbajane (verified owner)

    I bought this as a gift and I couldn’t be more pleased with it! The candle smells great and the shipping was timely. Thank you!!

  9. Yasaman Setayeshpour (verified owner)

    This smells incredible!

  10. melylee87 (verified owner)

    This candle is perfect! Although I’m a bit sentimental about the tins I love the clear jars. The color is gorgeous and the scent is amazing!! I refuse to burn it. XD

  11. Harley (verified owner)

    Once I finally got introduced to Nikolai I knew I had to get a candle inspired by him! The scent is really nice and manly smelling without being overpowering and the color is gorgeous! And I absolutely love the new jars!

  12. Sylvia Chris (verified owner)

    This candle is so wonderful. Nikolai is my book boyfriend, and this candle is exactly how a boyfriend should smell! The coloring and quality of the candle is absolute perfection!

  13. Erin Fordham (verified owner)

    This candle is perfect! It’s got a masculine smell that is a little like cologne but with a nice, fresh ocean smell. The color is also spot on, and the jars are amazing!

  14. Kayla Wilchynski (verified owner)

    This candle is freaking amazing, the scent is phenomenal! When I am eventually not so poor anymore from buying so many candles I definitely want to buy this one in a jar! You’re one of my favorite candle companies, Brittany! Superb quality!
