The Original Book Candles
An idea that makes scents
Before anybody else was making literary-themed fragrances, we decided to do it ourselves! Our nerdy hobby is now a small handmade business.
High-Quality & sustainable
We use 100% soy wax, lead-free cotton wicks and hand-selected fragrance oils. Our ingredients are vegan and containers are reusable/recyclable.
I bought a smaller version of this candle with my first purchase. It smelled so delicious, had to have the bigger candle. Yum yum yum! And I love the name!
This was the first scent that I ever purchased from Frostbeard, and it is still my favorite. I actually purchase 2 of this scent at a time so that I never have to be without it. Incredibly unique, perfectly powerful, and great for reading!
I got this candle as a Christmas gift and wound up buying 2 more just to have on hand. This is what summer smells like to me. It immediately lifts my spirits.
A nice subtle scent. Bought this to try and convince myself to try reading the LOTR trilogy one more time. Again, I grew bored before making much progress. Oh well!
Smelled incredibly sweet when it came out of the box, but after burning, it has a lovely softer scent - the earl grey tea really balances out the incense!
Warm and inticing aromas make it a nice day to stay in and crack open a book. Especially on days when you want to ignore how terrible the weather may be.
This candle is great for a reading room or library, even if you choose not to burn it. Very strong and true to its atmospheric promise. 10/10 will buy again.
Got the smallest size to test it out and now I regret not getting a larger size! The scent is spicy and subtle at the same time. It’s such a delight to have this while I’m knitting surrounded by books.
So far this is my favorite Frostbeard candle. As others have mentioned, this is a strong scented candle. I like the fact that it fills my house with a wonderful scent of coffee and chocolate.
This was my first purchase from Frostbeard Studio and I am absolutely in LOVE. My only problem now is to decide which scent I should choose next!
Sweet and warm at the same time! I enjoy candles with a distinctive scent and this one fulfills this desire. It is easy for me to see Sherlock/Watson sitting around a desk solving their latest mystery! Enjoy
Winterkeep is a wonderful scent. It's foresty and comforting. It's one of our regular buys from frostbeard and will continue to be so. The scent is strong and is able to fill a fairly large room. Highly recommended!
This was my first purchase from FrostBeard and I was definitely impressed! Terrific quality, smells exactly as advertised. The coffee smell is intoxicating, I love burning this candle when I read. Thank you!
I am loving Frostbeard candles! So far Bookstore is my favorite. Reading in the Café is a close second. This candle fills my small house with a wonderful scent. Not too sweet and flowery like other candles. Very pleasant.
This definitely my favorite candle and go to purchase. It has a light scent that is fresh and sweet. It permeates the room without being overpowering. It really does smell like old books! <3
Smells heavenly. Coffee and chocolate and two of my favorite things in the world and this is a beautiful combo of both. Good enough to eat (don't worry, I won't).
This candle is a beautiful combination of sweet butterscotch and caramel, with the perfect amount of warmth from rum! Another win from Frostbeard!
This one makes you feel warm and cozy inside on those rainy or cold snowy days when you just want to snuggle up with a soft blanket, a good cuppa, and your favorite book!!!
This candle is one of the single best things to happen to my book reading life. The smell is wonderful and subtle, and reminds me of old books and a cup of mocha. Wonderful!
These candles are for those of us who want more from our candles than scents you can smell everywhere. These candles bring us into a deeper world. Nicely done.
I bought one for my wife for Christmas. She absolutely loved the scent. She said this is her favorite candle ever! Smell transforms you in HP’s world.
This is 100% my favorite candle in existence. Every single scent note is detectable and it mixes perfectly, the sweet candy lemon, the spicy cedarwood, and crackling fire... it's so perfect and completely unique.
My favorite thing to do on stormy mornings is snuggle up near a window with a book and this candle makes for a great rainy day companion. The scent is just as cozy as the blankets I like to bundle up with.
I love this scent. It truly does evoke the feeling of cozying up on a rainy day with a good book. The ginger warms it up while the lavender keeps it calming. It's simply fabulous.
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.
I love this candle. It smells like a wonderful winter evening by the fire. I also love how even when the candle isn’t burning, it makes the room smell wonderfully.
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!
I am in love with these candles! They burn evenly and cleanly, and fill the house with the scent. And this Outlander styled scent is a keeper regardless of the season!
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!
I love the Oxford Library candle so much! It is my go-to candle and it always makes me happy, especially if it's lit while I'm curled up on the couch reading. I always make sure to have one on hand.
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.
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!
The fragrance is wonderful! Not too strong, calming, very herbal. Reminds me of when I'm in my own herb garden working. The scent easily fills my room within about 15 min!
I love the unique scent of fireplace in this one. That with the hint of lemon, and I feel like I'm sitting in Dumbledore's office after breaking school rules waiting for a lecture and a rather large number of house points!
This is probably my favourite candle ever - it makes the room smell like you are standing in the middle of Claire’s herb garden on a misty Scottish day!
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.
