About

How was MadameFiction born?

I've been a fan of bookish candles for years now. However, most shops were in America and I could not afford shipping. In December 2016, I got my first bookish candle sent to me as a gift and I was hooked. I found some great UK companies.

But I still didn't think there were enough.

So every book I read, I had a notebook with me. I would write down scents inspired from that book and when I finished university in April 2017, I bulk ordered a bunch of supplies and got cooking! The first batch turned out great. I thought it was a fluke, but I really got the hang of it.

I brainstormed a shop name and ended up with MadameFiction. Madame means a woman who works in the arts so I thought it was perfect! Fiction obviously represents the type of merchandise I sell and it means I can open my shop up into other areas in the future - it won't ONLY be candles.

I'm currently writing a novel, so to fund my work I'm opening this shop up! All the scents have been tested and sniffed by multiple trustworthy friends and family members so you can trust that they are high quality and lovely candles.

I'm Beth - I'm 21 - I live in Scotland - I'm married - and I am sharing my bibliophilic tendencies with all you other bookworms. And TV and Movie nerds, too. :)

Frequently asked questions
Can I return my item?

If you have not yet burned your candle, you may return it if you have contacted me within 3 days of receiving it and return it within 14 days. You are responsible for shipping costs. When it arrives back to me, I will issue a full refund. :)

Custom and personalised orders

Yes! I have just started doing custom candles. If you’d like to discuss options, just message me :)

Care instructions

It's very important that you take good care of your candle.

Please store it at room temperature away from direct sunlight as this can cause the candle to sweat, change colours or even melt.

Make sure that you let the burn pool become even before blowing out the candle to avoid tunnelling. This will allow you to make most of every inch of wax in the jar.

Please note that because of the wood wick, some discolouration of the candle is possible. This will not affect the burn or scent of the candle.

Please do not leave the candle unattended while burning. Do not burn it underneath a shelf or any other object. Stay safe with your candle :)

Wholesale availability

If you are ordering more than 10 eight ounce candles, please message me and I can sort out a small discount. :)
