Beautiful Candles – Ex Libris – Indigo Scents-

Hello Beyouties !

Today I am unboxing some gorgeous candles.

I need Candles in my life – They are as important as having beautiful flowers in my home. They set a Mood, add glorious scent and are an absolute necessity ..

I use them in a myriad of ways…

Bubble Baths ..


Whilst I write or create …

These are very special – as they have beautiful Quotes on them – to further inspire…..

These three candles are hand poured,

glass and their burn time is 44-48hrs


These came as a Gift and in an Chapters/ Indigo Box –

I had to look up the scents.

“It may be those who do most, dream most” – Stephen Leacock.

Stephen Leacock

Canadian economist best remembered for his humorous writings (1869-1944)


Smoldering ember, sandalwood and soft leather

My thoughts

Although I have not burned any of these yet …

This one reminds me of a soft leather bound book or journal

It’s a more masculine scent but I adore it …

“To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle” – Walt Whitman.
“Poet and journalist Walt Whitman was born on May 31, 1819 in West Hills, New York. Considered one of America’s most influential poets, Whitman aimed to transcend traditional epics and eschew normal aesthetic form to mirror the potential freedoms to be found in America. In 1855 he self-published the collection Leaves of Grass; the book is now a landmark in American literature, though at the time of its publication it was considered highly controversial. Whitman later worked as a volunteer nurse during the Civil War, writing the collection Drum Taps (1865) in connection to the experiences of war-torn soldiers. Having continued to produce new editions of Leaves of Grass along with original works, Whitman died on March 26, 1892 in Camden, New Jersey. “
The Quote on the candles is from His poem titled “Miracles”


Walt Whitman, 18191892

Why, who makes much of a miracle?
As to me I know of nothing else but miracles,
Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,
Or wade with naked feet along the beach just in the edge of the
Or stand under trees in the woods,
Or talk by day with any one I love, or sleep in the bed at night
with any one I love,
Or sit at table at dinner with the rest,
Or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car,
Or watch honey-bees busy around the hive of a summer
Or animals feeding in the fields,
Or birds, or the wonderfulness of insects in the air,
Or the wonderfulness of the sundown, or of stars shining so
quiet and bright,
Or the exquisite delicate thin curve of the new moon in spring;
These with the rest, one and all, are to me miracles,
The whole referring, yet each distinct and in its place.

To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same.

To me the sea is a continual miracle,
The fishes that swim—the rocks—the motion of the waves—the
ships with men in them,
What stranger miracles are there?


This was one of my favourite poems as a teenager as I began to write poetry

So optimistic and bedazzling


Cedarwood, warm amber and delicate spice.

My Thoughts

This Candle reminds me of dusk at a cottage …

It’s indeed a poetic scent and is more delicate than Leacock.

Love !

And last but not least …

Virginia Woolf -Author- Journalist


English author Virginia Woolf wrote modernist classics including Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, as well as pioneering feminist texts, A Room of One’s Own and Three Guineas.

The Full Quote is actually

“Yet, it is true, poetry is delicious; the best prose is that which is most full of poetry.”

A little too long for a candle !


smooth vetiver, sweet tobacco and soft lavender

My Thoughts

This is my Favourite scent out of the three

It’s very feminine and soft and has a comforting aroma

It reminds me of my first trip alone

and that was to Cuba

I was 19 or 20

I Love it …

All these are beautiful and I will cherish them

Each candle is boxed beautifully and carries within itself a mood and ambiance that is indeed singular like the writer quoted.

Hope you enjoyed my little review

My skin is “on break” for a week

So I will be writing about many different things !


until next time xo

  2. Never been a candle person and it’s not like I’ve not given it a try but I get anxious that something may just catch on fire. I love incense sticks though. They calm me down and give me a nice spiritual experience…

  3. As much as I love Walt Whitman the Virginia Woolf candle sounds lovely. Candles are a must in my house and this was a really cool idea to correlate candles with poets!!
