“We’ve searched high and low across the world to bring you Novembers Magical Beasts Crate so hide anything shiny, perfect your bow and maybe grab a pair of fire proof gloves as you’re about to release three magical beast candles and exclusive enamel pin. (The Only thing jewellery moles love more than diamonds).”

The November NPC Crate from Nerd Poured Candles for the month of November, “Magical Beasts” was all things Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. As you can probably tell from my blog name etc I’m a bit of a fan and this is my absolute favourite crate to date so far.

First up we have the Thunder Bird Candle, a gloriously creamy looking pale yellow with hints of golden sparkle throughout, scented with coconut, lime and verbena brilliantly embodying this magnificent creature from the wilds of Arizona. This candle has a great cold throw but the warm throw is spectacular and a great accompaniment to a warm evening inside.

I screamed a little when I unboxed this (which you may have seen if you’ve watched the unboxing video I did on YouTube – which you can find here),  not only is it based on one of the best magical creatures which I adore, but the scents are a delicious combination of three of my favourite tastes! Biscuits, white chocolate and vanilla… This just feels like it was made just for me! Imagine a custard cream with vanilla scented, white chocolate filling, are you drooling yet? Because I am. An absolute favourite for sure.

The third candle was based around everyone’s favourite Magical Zoologist with the rough brown colour suiting Newt down to the ground from the leather of his magical case, his sandy hair or his tan waistcoat. Scented with bergamot, lemon and cognac I imagined it being a very stereotypical ‘man smell’ but it’s a gorgeous deep scent with lovely little light notes of lemon that follow and this one actually ended up being my favourite! I couldn’t get enough of it and when lit the scents just all come together so well. I need more of this one please!

This badge is huge! It’s easily double the size of any of the other pins to date and super secure with two pins and attachments on the back. Newt’s suitcase features a quote from the first film and cute little escaping Niffler paws! The metal is also a lovely rose gold colour which fits in with the whole aesthetic brilliantly.

This months bookmark is a lovely simple but effective design with loads of different prints and feathers and a perfect quote from everyone favourite No Maj Jacob Kowalski to finish it off, again the colours fit perfectly with the whole feel of this crate and the world of Fantastic Beasts.

October NPC Unboxing – Hunting Monsters, Saving People

“This month we’re going hunting for everything from ghouls and ghosts to Djinn and Genies. Join the ‘Family Business’ and come hunting with us in this months NPC Crate! Who knows, you may even get some help from a friendly angel?”

The NPC Crate from Nerd Poured Candles for the month of October was based around all things “Supernatural” just in time for Halloween, I have to admit I’m a relative newbie still when it comes to the still popular TV show but recently I started working my way through it again and this box of goodies fit perfectly alongside my evenings of binge watching.

First up we have the “King of Hell” candle, a nice snappy purple that I think Crowley would definitely approve of, scented with Citrus, Musk and wood it suits our previous crossroad demon down to the ground with that citrus combining nicely with the musk and the wood as a nice smoky background to it.

The next candle, “Wayward Sons” (the song is now forever stuck in my head), is the perfect Autumn/Fall candle, from its colour which is neither orange or yellow, yet somehow both and with a fragrance of Cinnamon bark, Bergamot and musk. Reminiscent of the limited edition Lucien candle by Geeky Clean (Nerd Poured Candles sister company) with that extra muskiness to it just finishes it off nicely, I could totally imagine this in air freshener form hanging in the Impala.

The last of the candles is my personal favourite and blends October nicely into November with “Salt and Burn” scented with Smoked wood and crackling embers. This candle smells like all the best parts of a bonfire and is perfect on a nice chilly evening, I love to burn it while reading while I use the Netflix fireplace in the background for some crackling sound effects. This candle is cleverly named and has a perfect scent to go with it.

The pin badge for the October box states that the wearer is a “Demon Hunter” and features the same style of Pentagram that the Winchester brothers wear as protection tattoos. I like that the whole thing looks like it’s encased in a shield, kind of like a police badge which with the number of times they pretend to be law enforcement feels pretty spot on, not to mention the healthy dose of black and red glitter on top!

The Bookmark is great quality as always with a chibi style Sam and Dean with a little winged Cas, the Protection tattoo and The Chevy Impala itself, the Winchester brothers have extra cute little details as well such as Sam holding an angel blade and of course, Dean has a bottle of beer!
