Don’t you just love taking a moment to sit down, read a good book, and let the real world fade away? Now, the beautiful book experience doesn’t have to be bound by pages anymore. You can now enjoy serene moments with your favorite book along with literary-themed scented candles!
Firebolt is a start-up venture by a certified bibliophile: 23-year-old Kenneth Garon. He shares with WhenInManila.com that he came up with the idea for his themed scented candles when he couldn’t find literature-inspired candles in the Philippines. So, he studied candle-making during the community lockdown. In September, he officially launched Firebolt, named after Harry Potter’s broomstick.
Firebolt has so far released two collections: Autumn and Winter. Aside from featuring locally-made scented candles inspired by the greatest names in literature, collections are also released according to seasons.
The Autumn collection features “Wordsworth” which has notes of sandalwood, vanilla, and cinnamon; and “Dickinson” which has notes of lavender, cedar, and bamboo.
For the Winter collection, you can enjoy the scented candles of “Dickens” made with notes of pine, rosemary, and peppermint; and of “Alcott” made with notes of pine, cinnamon, and almond. I’m sure that just thinking about these scents can make you feel the coziness of specially-made candles for the cold weather.
To complete the tranquil experience brought to you by these candles, they all come with a curated Spotify playlist that exactly matches its scent. Side note: I instantly squealed when I heard the first song on my candle’s playlist because it was PERFECT.
Firebolt indeed takes pride in offering not just literature-inspired scented candles, but a complete experience for people with the same passion as the brand.
They even offer gift boxes which include two scented candles and a Jane Austen-inspired tote bag!
What I personally love about Firebolt is the attention to detail that’s so evident in their products. Any book-lover will definitely fall in love with these scented candles. Even casual readers can enjoy these because they smell amazing and can instantly lift up your spirits.
Firebolt’s scented candles start at PHP 499 for an 8 oz. jar! Make sure to get one from their Winter collection because…. well, Spring is coming. 😉
