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 - Silver (1-Stick) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Wax (but not without issues) I have a few Atelier waxes and I like them very much, the colors are unique and the wax really has a depth and range to it I haven't found anywhere else. However, there are two minor issues with these waxes. First, these burn/melt much slower than the J. Herbin wax which can make them a bit more difficult to deal with -- more of a learning curve than anything else. Second, and more importantly, the lighter shades tend to soot leaving some unsightly black in your stamping. For me it's not a deal breaker and it is minor but I plan to try using a butane lighter to see if that fixes the issue. Overall, I like the product: the wax is supple, it smells great, the colors are rich, and it's a nice sized stick for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Atelier Gargoyle - YES! I absolutely love this sealing wax! This time around, I ordered Copper, Gold, Silver, and Espresso. The quality of the wax is superb. The metallics are very nice and rich, and the "plain" colors are anything but. The "raw" stick may look a little flat if you're buying for first time, but just melt that first seal and you'll see the true beauty come out. The sticks are large and give a lot of seals for the buck. It is very economical to use, the cost is really not pricey at all. Plus, it holds up really well in the mails. The scents of the wax are truly wonderful. Earthy and warm. When I opened the package, I was greeted with intoxicating earth tones, and it felt like I could instantly be transported into either Christmas Eve, or a Midsummer's night. The scents are luscious without being perfume-ish or overpowering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice silver wax for seals I have used this wax a few times to seal envelopes and to affix a ribbon to a wrapped gift, as shown in my attached photo. Another reviewer gave some comments that I found insightful, and I wanted to give my perspective. I do not mean to disagree with or discredit the other review. I only intend to share my own experience. He stated that this wax is slow to melt. I have not used other types of wax so I don't have a point for comparison. I do find that this wax takes a bit of patience to work with over the flame of a candle, but I do not mind this personally. Perhaps it would be a different story if I were to use the wax to make several seals in quick succession, but I have only ever done one at a time. He also stated that the wax may be dirtied by soot. I have noticed some soot from my candle flame on the stick itself, but I have not noticed discoloration in the seal itself.
