The same TNS candles you know and love... just with some imperfections. Since all of our candles are handmade, sometimes flaws arise and we can't sell them at full price. By purchasing an imperfect candle, you get to enjoy our unique fragrances at a discount while also helping us reduce waste and make room in our studio for more inventory. All of these candles are fully functional and safe to burn – the imperfections are purely aesthetic. Things like: noticeable dents, smudges, labels with wrinkles, upside-down labels, scuffed vessels, etc. Mystery candles include scents from both our core collection and limited edition releases. Just pick your candle size (7oz. or 14oz.) and take the plunge – we can't wait to surprise you!
PLEASE NOTE: We can't accommodate requests, substitutions, or returns for mystery candles. All sales are final.
I ordered three Mystery Candles and was sent Heatwave, The Usual, and Duvet Day. I was really excited to try out this brand and I wish I could say I was happy with these scents, but I’m a little disappointed. Heatwave baffles me. I was expecting something that smelled fresh, natural, and herbaceous from a cucumber/dill/and peach candle; but the scent is surprisingly sharp and synthetic. I can’t pick out any of the listed notes. Not at all what I expected. The Usual smelled exactly like Carnation-brand powdered coco mix for the first few burns, and has finally started to reveal some coffee notes. It’s fun, but lacks complexity and depth, and feels a little cheap. Duvet Day is the most well executed of the three I received. It’s soft and powdery, and evokes the scent of clean laundry/dryer sheets perfectly. All the notes are present. Unfortunately, this isn’t a scent profile I enjoy in candles. Bad luck. On a lighter note, the packaging was cute. The metal tins had only slight dents, despite being labeled as seconds, which was nice. But aesthetics aren’t what really matter to me when it comes to candles. I want good scents. A pretty underwhelming experience overall.
Bought 3 candles, and they’re all a great value and in great condition! Good quality candles that I will buy again. That said, I was a bit disappointed that they were all from the Christmas/fall collection, and 2 of them were the same scent (I got 2x Cali Christmas & 1x Harvest Table). Not the biggest deal if it was specified in the description. A friend of mine also got 3 candles, and they too were all from the Christmas collection.
What a STEAL - just a little dent in my big boy of The Usual! Would DEF repurchase!
