These ones are the Claire and Jamie Fraser candles. For those who have not lived with those names being spoken as if they were friends of the family, they are the two main characters of Outlander. I have not yet read the books nor have I been watching the new episodes as they are released. In fact, I have not even watched season two properly yet as the end of season one near killed me. However, I am rather fond of Claire’s strength and perseverance and love the sweet, red-haired Scot who is willing to do anything for the woman he loves.
Now I should probably talk about the candles…
In case it was not obvious, the Claire candle is the purple one featuring a stone, a blue dragonfly and a forget-me-not while Jamie is the green one with a stag. These ones are only 2oz candles, so if you were to get a larger candle Claire would have an additional stone and Jamie would also have the Clan Fraser of Lovat broach. Appearance wise, these both have beautiful labels and stunning wax design.
The scents for Claire are roses, violets, vanilla and white musk which understandably gives it a very floral balanced out with a hint of musk. Jamie, on the other hand, smells of an oudoorsy man (A.K.A. delicious, but not in a food way) with its scents of leather, campfire and woods.
As with my other Merch Monday featuring a Faerie Tale Candles item, I think these are amazingly beautiful and the scents are lovely, but I do not know if I could bring myself to light them up.
