A note from the founders, Linnea and Ward:

We started experimenting with making our own sealing wax in the early 1990s. We’ve tested it on our personal correspondence since then, and we started selling it to the public in 2003. We make the wax sticks ourselves in our atelier. We mix small batches and pour the wax into special molds from which individual sticks are removed and trimmed. Our wax comes in a rainbow of colors, and is sized for convenience of use.

We consulted with noted herbalist Jeanne Rose to find the right essential oils to scent our wax; which include cassia, nutmeg, clove bud, litsea cubeba, lavender, vetiver, and pine. Our wax sticks bear a calligraphic rendering (done by Ward) of our business name (Atelier Gargoyle), along with the medieval alchemical symbols for “wax” and “spirit or essence”.

Atelier Gargoyle Flexible Sealing Wax - Red (1-Stick) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around! The Atelier Gargoyle sealing wax melts beautifully, doesn't catch fire quickly the way some other sealing waxes do (particularly the wicked variety), and each stick is beautifully scented. I'm using the red one right now, which smells like cinnamon. The wax stick is large so you're definitely getting a lot for your money, and the quality is very high. I haven't tried sending myself a letter through the mail yet to see if the wax survives machining, but I have done test bends and it's very flexible even when completely cooled. One thing I will say is that - probably due to the extra-flexible nature of this wax - it likes to stick to the seal when you do your press. So it's a good idea to chill your seal for a few minutes in the fridge before doing your press, to make sure you get a clean impression and no wax sticking/transfer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Christmas red! It took a little practice. I tried it with three different butane lighters and managed to render all three useless for a time. They could not keep up with the number of seals I was doing on our huge batch of Christmas cards. I was forced to use a candle to melt the wax, but once I perfected the method it was actually easier than using a lighter. If you take your time and keep the wax moving a little above the flame it works great. I especially take my time warming up the wax for the first seal. As long as you keep your wax out of the flame it will not look sooty. I also used an ice pack to keep the seal cool, but after a while you may get water drops forming on the seal and they will distort your seal if you don't wipe them off. This is a perfect Christmas red! It looks pretty by itself, but is also fun to mix it with a few drops of the gold wax. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, smells great! Very impressed. I tested it out and sealed a random piece of paper, and I tore at it, bent it, folded it, and the seal remained intact. As an added bonus, it smells strongly of cinnamon!
