“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.
