NOTES | This is a 12oz 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.

Love how potent this candle is – it’s surprisingly refreshing and can honestly cover up any other smell. Love putting this on in my kitchen after cooking fried foods!

The title says it all. Musky, mysterious, and very similar to how I’d imagine him smelling. I am going to burn this alongside my book boyfriend candle! 🙂
