Dramatic Irony

(7 customer reviews)


Only you know what comes next.

Dramatic irony is best described as an overwhelming feeling of inevitability that arises when readers can only watch as their favorite character steps into traps unseen or fails to anticipate some forthcoming triumph.

This scent is imbued with that sensation, emboldened by fragrances like patchouli, musk, and cinder.

So what comes next? Only you know for sure, but we like to think it involves you, this candle, and the slaying of the blank page.

    I won this candle in a contest and I’m so glad I did because I’m not sure I would have been drawn to this fragrance on my own. Patchouli is not a smell many people can immediately imagine. I can’t adequately explain how it smells exactly like “dramatic irony”, I can only say that it totally does. The cinder and musk blend together into that cozy scent that floats around you when you hug your favorite aunt and she’s wearing that perfume she’s always had since her youth. Not old, but familiar and comforting. Now, imagine she’s a suspect in the novel you’ll reading and boom. There’s your dramatic irony.

    I was nervous about purchasing a candle online without having smelled it first because I’m sensitive to strong smells. This candle smells AMAZING. It has a fantastic blend of cinder and musk and … I don’t know what patchouli is, but I’m sure it’s part of the fantastic scent. I burned it for at least four hours and that barely made a dent. I’m looking forward to trying the other candles and seeing what new scents are released! ⠀

    This candle smells like the shop of an eccentric good witch trying hard to masquerade as a simple seller of crystals and charms. She’ll enchant you with a warm cup of tea she’s brewed to bring you luck in your writing endeavors.

    This distinct and unique scent is perfect for full moons and scenes full of tension.

    This candle smells fantastic, like a really good men’s cologne. TBH, I wish my husband smelled as good as this candle.

    This is hands-down my favourite scent from KYD. I’m a sucker for musk, and mixing it with patchouli and cinder makes for a really dreamy profile. There’s something magical and exciting about this fragrance. Like all the other candles from KYD, the scent isn’t overpowering but still manages to fill a room. I love burning this one when I write — it really does something for my creativity!

    A perfect blend of fragrances! I love how the aroma lasts even hours after the candle has been extinguished. Plus, it smells just like I imagined the alchemy shops in my books to smell, so BONUS!

    This is the perfect gift for your writer friends! I would know, I’ve given five away to very happy writers!
