Indie Spotlight: Burke & Hare Co

This post is long over due! I figured since I just got a fresh order of their candles, it was time to talk about Burke & Hare Co! They’re a goth/witch owned brand and I’ve been a customer for at least 5 years now and have a large stock of their candles (Seriously, I have too many and keep buying more lol). Not only are they cruelty free and vegan, but they are probably the best smelling candles I’ve ever smelled. They are truly the masters of scent balancing from gourmand scents to earthy, and to floral, they know what they’re doing and they do it well. They also make perfume roll ons based on their popular candle scents, hair oils, and room mists as well. Having owned all of their product types, I can tell you they smell just as amazing as their candles. I honestly can say I don’t think I’ve gotten a candle from them I didn’t like. I’m not crazy about gourmand scents as they can get too overpowering for me, but the few I have from them do smell really good (I just burn them in moderation). They also have a subscription box service where you can receive a limited edition candle that can’t be purchased on the site (unless they have left overs they put up after all of the subscription customers have been mailed theirs) You can find more information about their subscription box here.

Halloween Candles


I ordered these when they did their early pre-order for their Halloween collection. I’m pretty sure I’ve purchased their entire Halloween collection in past years (minus the new scents for this year) and only didn’t buy them again this year because I’m still trying to get through last years stock! The full Halloween collection will be available to purchase in September!
