Book & Nook Anniversary Collection Unboxing

“She had always been drawn to the untamed, wild things of the world.”

-Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Frost and Starlight 

Hi everyone! Can you believe we’re halfway through June today?! Nope, me either. Today I’m excited to unbox the special Book & Nook Frost and Starlight box! It was a bumper box to celebrate their one year anniversary, themed around A Court of Frost and Starlight, and was just gorgeous.

I’m sure you’ve all received yours by now, but spoilers are coming! You have been waaaaarned.

First up, was the beautiful theme bookmark. I’m not sure if it was by design or happy mistake that I got two of these in my box, but now I can show you both sides together!

*strokes the pretty bookmark*

As an extra in this box, we also got an art print exclusively designed by @endingchaptershop with a matching bookmark, which was just fab as I always seem to lose bookmarks?! So I clearly just need LOADS of them. And pretty ones are the best kind.

As well as a mug and bracelet! We were thoroughly spoiled with this box and I LOVE IT. I mean…

Isn’t that the most beautiful mug you’ve EVER SEEN?! Yes, yes it is.

Now, onto the bit you’ve been waiting for… the candles.


Court of Dreams

Court of Dreams smells like grapefruit, pomelo, and vanilla and DREAMS. Seriously, this candle smells amazing. It’s sweet and creamy with a fruity zing and very addictive. Like I would wear this as a perfume and I would smell AMAZING. Plus it’s super pretty with a light grey colour dusted with black and silver glitter in little clouds. Basically, this is perfection in a candle.


Solstice Night

Solstice Night is beautiful. That font and label are just sucking me in. It smells of raspberry, myrrh, and clove, and is deliciously smoky with that hint of raspberry perking it up. And it’s super sparkly with all that magenta glitter! LOVE.


Wolf’s Den

Wolf’s Den is all dark and mysterious, with an oaky candle colour and tonnes of brown glitter, which really suits it and the leaves on the label. It smells like fig, patchouli, and musk and is a really dark, musky, quite heavy scent, which isn’t my favourite but it suits the candle and theme SO well!


Rainbow of Velaris

Rainbow of Velaris is another absolutely gorgeous candle! I love the rainbow on the label and it smells like blackberry, sweet peas, and night, which is a super pretty scent, subtly sweet and twinkly-smelling! It’s a lovely shade of blue with purple dusting and iridescent glitter topping it which looks amazing! This one is another favourite of mine from this box.


Void & Hope

Void & Hope smells like winter jasmine, neroli, and ginger, and it’s a lovely, complex scent! It has floral notes with a hint of sweetness and some other stuff I can’t describe but it is NICE. It’s also dark and mysterious with lots of blue sparkliness.


Ilyrian Traditions

Ilyrian Traditions is another favourite of mine! (Yes, I have three favourites in this box.) It smells like snow, cyclamen, and trees and is so pretty and snowy and I LOVE IT. It smells slightly sweet and foresty and is a lovely complex and delicate scent that I want to burrow my nose in and inhale forever. I also adore that it’s white with white glitter and frosting on top! And snowflakes on the label! *dies*
