And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, you’ll also enjoy a heady scent which ‘smells like you're heading to Hogwarts in the Fall’. That's not something even a Diptyque masterpiece can deliver.
With curious notes of apples, pears, mandarin, peaches, raspberries and tree bark, we’re guessing that one whiff is the equivalent of sticking your head out of the Hogwart’s express on a clear, crisp autumn day.
It takes 44 to 50 hours for the candle to burn down to level that confirms whether you’re Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin. Perhaps you could use that time to perfect some spells or practice making potions?
Housed in retro jars, the eco-friendly candles are made from Soy Wax. And as you’d expect come in blue, green, yellow and red.
But this time the joy is in discovering what colour you have, rather than opting for a hue that perfectly complements your interiors.

We love this glorious reimagining of the classic Harry Potter Sorting Hat, and the only question that remains is, is it too early to put it on our Christmas wish list?
