The Dropout Candle
The Dropout was inspired by Ingrid's lifelong love of learning and her distaste for school. As a college dropout herself, she knows what it feels like to be underestimated – especially when you decide to take an untraditional path in life. With notes of golden saffron, hemp leaves, rhubarb, smoked vanilla and leather, The Dropout is bold, rebellious and has a rich inner quality to it. When first lit, this candle is unexpectedly warm and grounding, but that’s the thing about rebels – they’re always full of surprises.
BY THE WAY...
All of our products are made by hand, so you may notice some slight variations or imperfections. This includes: small dents or scratches on the packaging, minor discoloration of the wax, labels that aren't perfectly straight, etc. None of these things impact the quality of the candle or its burn.
The actual best
If this was made into a perfume, I would actually worship TNS. The dropout scent is SO GOOD. It is comforting and warm and in my opinion, is truly the most unique of all of TNS candles I have. They all smell amazing, don’t get me wrong, but the dropout is so incredibly complex and subtle and utterly unique. It’s a candle I light early morning when it’s still dark and I have my coffee, during the day when it’s cloudy and rainy, when I’m reading a good book…I will buy this candle till the day I die haha.
THE MOST fragrant candle I have ever owned! I was gifted this scent and it is SO GOOD ... you can actually smell it throughout every room in the house. Extremely happy, can't wait to get more!
My favorite scent
I’m pretty sure this is the only candle I’ve bought multiple times and will continue to for as long as I can! This time I got it to pairs with Harvy, and the two are a match made in heaven. The dropout is the perfect moody and sophisticated scent. I am forever a member of the dropout hive, will sing it’s understated praises, and will keep on buying it and savoring it. My fav scent, hands down.
My new favorite!
The Dropout has quickly become my favorite candle of all time. The notes are so interesting and deliver such a unique scent experience. I’m instantly transported to a leather lounge chair in a beautiful vintage library. It’s just so warm and cozy! Loveeeee!
as a *broke* grad student, fancy candles are not exactly in my budget. When TNS launched I got a few discovery sets to see which scent (if any) i really liked before splurging on a full size. I fell in LOVE with the dropout and saved my little samples for as long as i could. I got the full size candle as an xmas gift to myself, and it has been a wonderful addition to my writing desk. I can best describe the scent as 'warm and spicy and clean.' The only thing I wish was different would be the vessel. I love using my candles as light sources, and when this one gets low, there is less light emitted than if it were in a more transparent vessel. I got a sample of The Usual with my christmas order and I am ******* after it. It will be my next buy forsure <3
