Welcome to the dark side

A bit more sinister version of Sherlock’s Study thanks to the our. Very good scent that perfect for dreary weather.

Teri W. (Long Prairie, MN)
5 ⭐️!

Interesting but amazing! I love this one so much!

Sebastian M. (Morrisville, NC)
Complementary, my dear Watson!

I am so glad a scent for Moriarty was made by Frostbeard. The hints of villainy in the spiced, heavier oudwood bring out the lighter notes. It makes for a beautiful and rich scent that’s perfect for any Sherlock fan! Me, personally? I always loved Moriarty, but choosing between this candle and Sherlock’s candle as my favorite is too difficult of a pick.

RS (Midlothian, VA)
In love with this candle

I’m a goner for any candle with tobacco and woody notes, so this one became an instant favorite. It’s like the Inklings (my favorite candle of all time) if they’ve just arrived at the pub and lit pipes but haven’t ordered drinks yet. I can imagine Moriarty sitting in his study, puffing away, and wondering which string of his spider’s web to pull next.

LeeAnn (Seahurst, WA)
My favorite so far!

This is definitely my favorite item so far. The description says “Cigar smoke,” but it actually reminds me of pipe tobaco and the richness of the scents in the tobaco shop my dad to shop at in Eagan when I was little. Moderate to strong is spot on for the scent strength but it’s so well balanced and rich, that i’m glad it’s a strong one. I have ordered many candles and wax melts over the years, all of them amazing in their own right, but this one, this is my precious. Please make more (it’s currently sold out 😢) and keep this in rotation. Frostbeard is amazing!
