THE SECRET MENU
Welcome to the Secret Menu!
Every year, I sweep through my collection of oils that remain from previous limited edition candles and sell them, slightly discounted, so that they do not go to waste and that lovers of older scents get a chance at more.
These scents are limited, and first come, first served. They are only available in 8oz tins. When possible, they will have their original label, but they will largely have professionally-printed labels with a handwritten name.
Autumnvale Cafe: The scent of a corner coffee shop in fall: pumpkin spice lattes and cinnamon chai.
Celtic Twilight: Honeyed amber redolent with the rich spice of clove, cassia, and nutmeg.
Ember & Mallow: moved to The Favorites collection
Mabon Woods: The scent of a woodland walk as the seasons change. Fluttering oak leaves, damp soil, cool air, and and the promise of an apple orchard just over the next hill.
Rustling Velvet & Fallen Leaves: Soft vanilla, smoked cedar, white birch, warm amber, cocoa, and a touch of patchouli.
Sacred Autumn: A magical blend of golden amber, pumpkin, sandalwood, and sweetened incense smoke.
Samhain Dusk: Dry amber, cassia, clove, the smoke of distant bonfires, and the faintest breath of orange peel.
