The Nutcracker - Scented Book Candle
Scent: The Nutcracker
Size: 12.5 oz.
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.
