This Sorting Hat Candle Reveals Your True House As It Melts

Every Potterhead has wondered what it would be like to sit in the Great Hall, listen to the Sorting Hat's song, and find out which Hogwarts house will be our home. Now you can get that experience in your own bedroom with this Sorting Hat candle, which reveals your true house as it melts.

Bookish candles are super popular these days. Readers can find scents that approximate their favorite places from Harry Potter, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Hunger Games, and other favorite book series.

What sets Etsy seller MMTrinkets' Sorting Hat candle apart is that it comes in four distinct colors and scents. Depending on your Hogwarts house, you can enjoy the smells of the fireside, a sweet leather, oakmoss and amber, or gingerbread, after the Sorting Hat candle burns through its vanilla top layer.

The Etsy shop also offers other Harry Potter-themed scents, including Hagrid's Hut, The Burrow, and Felix Felicis. Each candle is available in 12-ounce and 14-ounce varieties. Most are made from glittery soy wax, which means they sparkle like potions on your mantle. And who doesn't want that?

If you're planning to buy a Sorting Hat or any of MMTrinkets' other wares as Christmas presents, bear in mind that all candles in the shop are made to order, so there's a processing time of five business days before your purchase will be shipped. Don't go shopping for Harry Potter candles on Dec. 21 and expect them to arrive by Christmas, y'all. That's just silly.
