Nutcracker and Mouse King Candle

A star of our Holiday book candle collection, the Nutcracker literary candle is inspired by the book, written in 1816, that started it all.

The Nutcracker scent is decadent and mouthwatering. There are notes of sea salt, caramelized sugar, and rich brown sugar, along with the nutty pecan and hazelnut. Vanilla, tonka bean, and caramel enhance the buttery goodness of this delicious treat.

E.T.A. Hoffmann, the original author of The Nutcracker, was actually named Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann, but he changed the Wilhelm to Amadeus out of admiration for Mozart. He wrote about music, he also composed it. He drew, painted, and wrote spooky fairytales.

One of Hoffmann's stories was adapted by the French writer Alexandre Dumas. It was about a little girl, Marie, her Christmas toys, and scary mice. You know the rest of it. Hoffmann's title for it was "Nutcracker and Mouse King."

In 1892, Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky and choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov made Duma's adaptation into ballet, the Nutcracker, the most famous ballet in the world.

If you haven't yet - you should read the book, while the candle burns.

We also added orange, patchouli, cedarwood, and clove leaf for you to indulge yourself in the Holiday spirit.

High-quality soy wax with cotton wick.
  • For the best burning experience, trim candle wick to a ¼ inch before each use.
  • The first burn of a candle should be long enough for the entire top layer of wax to liquify. This will ensure an even burn for each light.
  • Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Never leave a candle burning unattended, or in reach of children or pets.
  • Protect the surface underneath the candle
Burn time: Approximately 40 hours
