These Harry Potter colour sorting hat candles can find your Hogwarts house

How gorgeous.

It’s been over a decade since the last of the Harry Potter books hit shelves.

But the Boy Who Lived, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger still continue to cast a spell over fans across the globe.

Whether it’s over tasty Butterbeer marshmallows or some truly bewitching kitchen ranges, there’s no shortage of tributes to the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling.

But this latest bit of Hogwarts themed decor has really cast a spell over us.

Etsy’s HappyPiranha has some brilliant Sorting Hat candles that will help you find out exactly where you belong at Hogwarts.

The top has a light vanilla scent and silver glitter, which will start to melt away as the candle burns – revealing which house you really belong to.

And if you burn it for longer, there’s even a scent specifically themed for your Hogwarts house.

If the candle starts to smell like cocoa, fire long and cinnamon swirl, you’ve made it into Gryffindor.

But if you start to smell sea breeze and leather cream, it may turn out that you’re a Slytherin.

Meanwhile if the candle’s scent resembles cucumber, cocoa leaf, jasmine and green tea, you’ve made it into Ravenclaw.

And if it smells like lime, basil and mandarin, you’ve made it into Hufflepuff.

The candle has an average burn time of 35 hours, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the spell-binding scent.
