Dark Candles

Hi again!  Sorry to be gone for a few days, but it turns out Jayson illness was a bit more serious than we thought… he ended up having a problem with his eye that had us in and out of specialists all week, but they have figured out what was going on, and are in the process of fixing him up good as new…. so we are “on the road again”.  :)

I found an interesting web site while poking around the internet last night, and thought I would share it with you… it’s a company called Dark Candles.  Described as per the site as: “Dark Candles opened its website on February 1, 2003, has been in business for 5 1/2 years, and is the originator of gothic and horror themed candles for sale specifically to people with dark and eccentric tastes.”

With scents such as: Absinthe, Apparition, Black Rose, Coffin, Crypt Moss, Dracula, Graveyard, Haunted House, and Nosferatu…. (among others).  It really makes you wonder… what DOES Crypt Moss smell like, or Apparition?  Or Graveyard (and would you REALLY want to know?).  Luckily, the site lists info on each scent, giving clues to what you are buying.

pillarsThey have standard colors associated with the scents, but the sits states that they can customize a particular scent with a different color for a minimal fee.  Could get expensive, but if you NEEDED something in particular, this would be a way to go.

They are located in Dallas, Tx (so its not too far for me to drive and check them out if I fall in love) and offer the ability to purchase online, but I also noticed they are sold through retailers in other locations – check them out, one might be near you!

Hey Dawn!

Hope Jayson gets better soon.

Love these! I've tried several scents and have yet to find one I didn't like. Their sample packs are great for giving it a "test sniff" ;)

Oh, I'm glad to hear that you like them, that will make me all the more excited to order some! I figured most people would have heard of these already, since they have been around so long, but you never know... there might be some "last to know" person like me out there who hasn't seen them yet!

Can't wait to order now! :)

I am a regular customer of Dark Candles and I usually always have an order in with them. Helena's Halloween line is wonderful, my favorites being Haunted House, Coffin and Crypt Moss.
Excellent quality and the scents are indescribably delicious!

While the concept for the company is great i've found that the candles from Dark Candles don't burn the way they should. I spend the money for a 6' piller and 1/3 of the way down it starts spilling wax all over the place. It isn't how a candle should burn. If you like the themes and want more product and fragrance selections i've found their competitor Evening Eclipse to offer much more value for the money. Their website is Another great perk to their site is you don't have to pay extra if you would like to pick the color of your candles. Customization is always free.
