Boys and girls of every age, wouldn’t you like to smell something strange? Candlemakers on Etsy have stumbled into Halloween Town and are now creating candles based on Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. And if you’re into fall-scented candles and the spooky animated classic, you’re going to want to get your skeletal hands on one (or several) of these selections before Halloween hits.

Halloween Town Candle

This “Nightmare Before Christmas”-inspired candle from Westbury Candle Co. is scented with “witch’s brew, vampire’s stew, and cinnamon sticks,” which, although mysterious sounding, is a hit with customers. One person commented that “Halloween Town” smells “absolutely amazing,” so whatever they put in that witch’s brew and vampire’s stew must be good.

Gamblin’ Boogie Man Candle

A mix of scents like burlap, patchouli, peppercorn, and clove make up the Gamlin’ Boogie Man soy candle from Once Upon A Wick, which is of course inspired by Oogie Boogie. With a “spicey & incense” scent profile, Oogie has never smelled better.

Deadly Nightshade Candle

Rustic Sugar Creek Co.’s soy candle called Deadly Nightshade is based on the sleep-inducing herb Sally gives Dr. Finkelstein so that she can sneak out of the house. This candle, available in multiple sizes, is a blend of sandalwood, tonka bean, lavender, and vanilla. “Slip one drop of this to your enemy and they will fall in a deep, dreamless slumber!” the description reads. “Just make sure they don’t fall asleep with this candle burning!”
