The baby Nifflers got into the box, they surely could smell some “gems” in it. So here’s a quick unboxing (because we don’t want them to get sick by eating candles or a shiny pin).
All NPC crates come with three candles, a pin and a bookmark. (Nifflers not included or the jigsaw behind as background)
The candles are Thunderbird which had a fresh smell, citrusy but also “clean”. Probably my least favourite of the three (but it doesn’t mean I don’t like it); Jewellery Mole (the Nifflers really loved this one, wonder why?) which was the yummiest home baked chocolate chip cookies just out of the oven smell, absolutely delicious, no wonder the Nifflers wanted to have it all to themselves. Finally we have the Magical Zoologist, which has a more natural smell, and of course it has bergamot which automatically makes it a winner in my books, so loving it too.
And of course there was the shiny enamel pin, which is a luggage case with the words “Just a Smidge” and the bookmark with a quote and on the back of it the Quest/Challenge unlocked and the ingredients/scents of the candles in detail.
I love this crate even if it doesn’t have books and usually burn the candles on the days I work from home (I am on my last one from the previous crate), and it makes the time working just that little bit more special and nicer. They’re not over pungent in scent but also they aren’t too discreet, you can smell them, and it is nice.
Highly recommend it 🙂
So I have been an excited idiot and have forgotten to take pictures of the previous boxes because it is just cute. NPC (Nerd Poured Candles) Crate is a candle, pin and bookmark subscription box that is all about nerdiness, and I love it.
Yes, it is a “simple” as in no frills and craziness, but it is sound in content. This one had three delicious smelling candles! (MY favourite smell matchng my own idea of how it would smell was Totoro’s Forest, but I was also very pleasantly surprised by Yubaba’s Bath House mostly because I have never been to one and somehow as I smelled this candle I went “oh yes, this makes sense even if I didn’t even imagine it close to this!”
The Calcifer pin was awesome with all the sassiness of him in it and I was so happy to see it in there. And the bookmark on the other side has the description of things (you level up with each crate, but shhh! let the n00bs find out the hard way) and the label for each candle (as in contents, ingredients, etc).
If this sounds like your cup of tea, you can buy it here.
If you’re a fan of candles and also D&D (or just an utter nerd) then this is the box for you!
This is their very first Crate, by Nerd Poured Candles (and GeekyClean). The concept is a “quest” (I love the D&D vibe so much! *fangirls*) per box, which includes 3 hand poured candles, a pin and something extra (if I remember correctly).
The logo is delightful, and the candles smelled delicious.
If you can’t make out what the pin says, it is “Ask me what I’m Reading”.
And the bookmark is in itself the “spoiler” card, on one side a quote, on the other the contents and introduction to the crate.
Next one is Ghibli themed so I obviously had to have it (I just wish there was a subscription option, it’s not like I don’t want it every time).
