If you’ve ever wanted to live out your main character life inside your favorite movie, now you can thanks to this innovative candle brand that offers scents inspired by iconic film genres.

Brooklyn-based Mise en Scent is a female-founded company that brings your favorite films to life with sensual candles that will allow you to set the scene, whether it’s date night or movie night. From rom-com to mystery, each of the six candles is made from hand-poured 100% soy wax and features a cotton wick.

The Fantasy candle, with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, and agave, will transport you to a whimsical world inhabited by your favorite heroic characters, while the French New Wave candle was inspired by the cinematic rules bent and broken in the 1960s—enjoy notes of pink pepper, jasmine, and nutmeg for a robust and enticing scent.

The haunting Macabre candle is inspired by slammed doors in abandoned buildings and the chilling feeling of entering a dark room. With notes of apple, cinnamon leaf, and cedarwood, this candle is best enjoyed with your favorite horror movie.

If you’re a fan of those movies that make you think, the Mystery candle has enticing notes of blackcurrant, patchouli, and saffron.

Bringing elegance and sophistication to your space, the Old Hollywood candle is ideal for those who love a little glitz and glamour—think plush velvet, red lips, and towering palm trees. This elegant scent features notes of leather, smoke, and musk.
