No, please, we’re begging you: help us burn writer’s block away.

Ordinarily, we’d write something clever about this candle’s lush notes of spiced honey and tonka, the hints of oak and smoke, its undertones of whiskey.

Instead, we’re stuck. Blocked, as it were.

    This candle was much sweeter than I expected! I definitely smell the whiskey but the oak seems to take away the “sting” of it so you’re just left with a rich mapley fragrance.
    Not a candle I want to burn every day, but great for cold days when you want to get warm and cozy.

    This is by far my favorite candle to date (I ordered it at release.) Knowing the KYD special touch, that might change because every new candle I get wows me.

    Writer’s Block is uniquely important to me though because it smells nearly like a good tobacco blend (definitely because of the oak and smoke). It brings back memories I have of late nights on the porch with writer friends chatting about ideas while smoke floats through the air. The whiskey is that note that keeps it warm, sweet, and not biting like true smoke. But just as addictive.

    This candle smells absolutely fabulous. It’s smoky and rich, but sweet too. Definitely a good purchase.

    I’m just going to come right out and say it: this is a sexy smelling candle. I wasn’t totally sure what to expect when I ordered this one, but I’m very happy with the result. It’s rich and moody, with the whiskey adding something unexpected to the profile. It makes me want to curl up under a thick knitted blanket in a cabin in the woods. If you’re one of those people who genders candle smells, this one would probably be categorized as a “masculine” scent.

    I rarely get writer’s block, but I get this fragrance.

    Alluring whiskey and smoke remind me of campfires and long evenings with friends and loved ones. There’s something very addicting about it, and I’m not a whiskey drinker. But I’ll definitely buy this one again!

    This is my favorite candle, maybe ever. The first time I smelled it, I exclaimed “Wow!” out loud to myself, alone in my house. It’s rich. It’s sweet. It’s warm. The whiskey and oak blend perfectly, making a scent that I can only describe as comforting. The smokiness adds a certain polish, a certain je ne sais quois, to it. Every time I smell it, I want to get comfy under a blanket and start reading. I feel I won’t ever be able to NOT have one of these candles on hand now.

    This is my favorite scent yet from Kill Your Darlings, a really unique, rich blend – smoky with a hint of sweetness. Makes me think of after-dinner drinks in some 18th century parlor, or nights spent writing by the fire. The aroma is so complex that I don’t get tired of it – I can burn this candle for hours and still enjoy it. This one’s a winner!

    The scent is amazing – I really love the rich blend. The candles burn clean and are long lasting. Well done, folks.

    One of my favorite scents in the batch I got. It’s definitely a sweet-smelling candle. But it’s cozy. Rich. Inviting. It’s the cabin you escape to when you’re feeling trapped, that embraces you and reminds you that life is to be sipped and savored like the whiskey in the scent profile. There’s no need to feel the pressure of writer’s block, because the oak will give you strength and the smoke will cleanse you of all that pesky self-doubt. This candle makes it easy to relax and ease into a creative headspace. Light it and be eased into your next scene.
