The Original Book Candles
An idea that just makes scents
When nobody else was making literary-themed fragrances, we decided to do it ourselves! Our nerdy hobby is now a small, sustainable handmade business.
Poured by hand in small batches
Along with 100% soy wax, our candles contain a lead-free cotton wick and hand-selected fragrance oils. Glass and aluminum containers are both reusable and recyclable.
This candle was passed around my book club and every person agreed it was a hit. It smells like a book store complete with a great espresso machine!
I swear I smell a bit of vanilla in this...but also a tiny touch of smoke, and cedar, and I just want to wrap up in a robe and binge something wholesome.
This candle smells great, like you're walking through a snow covered forest and can smell the chimney smoke from the scattered houses. It's a perfect scent for the cold weather!
As a retired librarian, you solved all of my holiday gifting! The candles arrived fast, in perfect condition and the quality is tops. Now I just need to indulge for myself. Thanks for being so creative!
This candle smells exactly as the description suggests: chocolatey and rich, with occasional, nutty hints of coffee. It is radiant and warm, and perfect for winter.
This scent blend is one of my favorites. The notes of Petrichor -- the smell rain makes on dry earth -- fit very nicely with the earthy ginger and lavender. Very relaxing! It really makes me want to settle down with a book and fall into a good story.
Whether I'm researching, reading, doing paperwork, or working on a story, Oxford Library's homey scent helps me settle right in without distracting me. I wish my whole house smelled like this all the time!
I once helped run a Middle Earth/ Narnia themed Murder Mystery Party and many people loved the scent because it helped to bring them more into character.
This is, by far, my favorite out of all of the candles I've bought from here! It's spicy, sweet, and the perfect scent to burn while reading for pleasure or studying for finals.
A warm, sweet scent that's perfect for when you're bundled up inside with a good book or movie.
This is a wonderful candle and it took me back to being in beautiful Scottish highlands. Very relaxing and has a great, fresh smell. I would buy it again.
This has quickly become my go-to, all-time favorite candle! It gives me just enough incense without being overpowering, and the tea rounds out the scent. Not to mention, each one is has a unique swirl in its coloring. Love it!
