For those who look for the little details in an item, you’ll most likely have an appreciation for fine packaging as well. These days it’s rare to come across a product packaged so intricately that the outside is just as special as what’s hidden inside.

We’ve never seen anything quite like the Zodiac Collection of candles byModern Alchemy. Each individual and astrologically assigned candle is placed in a black and gold bound “book” that houses the candle.  They’re oddly dark and gothic, and the best gift to give a friend (or yourself) this fall.

Zodiac Collection candles by Modern Alchemy, $15-$45. Available at Far Away Eyes
