New England maple, hickory and walnut are set ablaze in a ravenous bonfire consuming the imagination. 7.4oz. approx 40 hours.
Modern Alchemy candles are comprised of a patented blend of high-grade European waxes, many of which are used for luxury body creams and lotions. This formula not only burns cleaner than any other candle, it also houses the delicately balanced essential oils without altering their fragile character. The wax in these candles is specifically designed to have a low melting temperature, thereby yielding a greater liquified surface area by which to better release the fragrance held within. The wick used in all Modern Alchemy candles is hand-braided cotton and lead-free.

Into the forest...

Salem is such an intense fragrance. I would never have imagined anyone looking back into history and turning such a dreadful, chaotic, maddening time into a fragrance just as menacing. I say that in a good way. Salem isn't for everyone. It is a dark, dreary scent in the best of ways. This candle reminds me of Belle Fleur's Kyara Clove. This is Kyara Clove's bigger, meaner brother. Where Kyara clove is softened by the leather and spices, Salem is left dank and dirty...with a strong Ashen aspect to it. The smell reminds me a lot of a campfire and the ashes that float up in the sparks and sometimes land on your body. Those little sooty bits and peices that smell altogether scary yet comforting in a freaky way. In that regard, this scent is NOT for everyone. I enjoyed my burning experience with Salem immensely but it was a unique one for me in that the scent matched up with the darkness of that time period in my life. This is a very wintery scent and also reminds me a ton of burning fires in the fireplace and cleaning the ashes from it afterwards. It sounds strange, but it is actually pretty cool. I love Modern Alchemy. They are very clever for coming up with this line.
