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.
Candle of the Month
Our newest candle is The Inklings.
If your idea of a college study session involves a dim-lit pub, ancient wooden booths and some of the sharpest literary minds around, then you're in luck. This unique take on a back-to-school scent is inspired by the famous Oxford literary discussion group (aka book club), home to both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.
We release a brand new, bookish candle scent every month! Want to get our new fragrances before everyone else (and at a discount)? Sign up for our Candle of the Month Club!
This is the first candle I ever purchased from Frostbeard. The name intrigued me and I went out on a limb to see if it could live up to it. And it does. Perfect for a cozy weekend afternoon spent reading and sipping tea. The scent is on the stronger side of "mild", which I love.
This is my favorite scent, bar none. If you celebrate Christmas but have a fake tree, I recommend this for that classic evergreen scent with a twist. I stocked up on this and the tarts for the holidays and my whole family is obsessed.
This is quite possibly my FAVORITE scent from Frostbeard. It has such a lovely, delicate scent that's still strong enough to travel throughout the house. I haven't come across many scents from Frostbeard that I HAVEN'T liked, but this one has a special place in my heart. It's fresh and perfect for spring/summer without being floral. Highly recommended!
There are very few candles I will buy more than once. This is one of them. Deliciously cozy, this scent somehow manages to be cozy, warm, and just a little bit adventurous. I usually burn it in my bathroom, but I just bought some wax tarts to burn in the living room. Sherlock's Study is a great scent for fall and winter when the evenings are chilly. I love it!
This candle has a great scent throw and I enjoy lighting it in my living room. It's been perfect for lighting on Sunday mornings while I drink my coffee and start my day off with reading. It has a nice roasted coffee scent with the chocolate underneath to sweeten it up a little bit.
This is my absolute favorite candle scent of all time. This is the perfect candle for both the Fall and Winter because it creates an incredible ambiance of cozy and comfort. It has a good scent throw so it works well to light it in my living room since it will fill up the space.
I've had this candle for months, I've been putting off lighting it for the first time because it smelled so perfect when untouched in the jar. Yesterday, it was raining and my old house was smelling musty; I lit the candle for the first time and within minutes it felt like I was in the shire on a spring day. The only thing missing was po-ta-toes cooking!
This candle is everything I had hoped it would be! I feel transported to the best part of Middle Earth, The Shire. The scent is well balanced. The Perfect amount of tobacco plays well against the grassy and slightly sweet tones of moss and clover.
This is my favorite candle! It makes you feel like you're in a coffee shop, but without all the noise. I love reading with this candle lit. It also helps me be more productive with work! Highly recommend!
The fragrance is wonderful, and it disperses evenly throughout the house. Always happy with Frostbeard candles!
This candle smells like you're baking cookies. It's incredible and I didn't even know that it was possible for a candle to smell that good. Probably my favorite scent from Frostbeard!
My husband ordered Old Books for me because I was really curious about how it would smell. When it arrived, I was really surprised that it actually reminded me of being around old books!
I've ordered Sassenach a few times and can easily say it's one of my all-time favorite Frostbeard scents! Fills the room nicely and makes me feel like I'm hanging out near Claire's herb garden.
This is one of my favorites for providing a great background for work or reading. Each scent is distinct, but together they create a marvelous ambiance when I'm stuck on finding just the right word, arguing with a recalcitrant protagonist, or struggling to get my daily 500 words down.
Sassenach has been one of my favourite candle scents from Frostbeard Studio so far. It’s also one of my favourite candle scents ever. I could not resist buying an Outlander themed candle and I was not disappointed. I am so amazed by the scent that I’m going to buy the biggest candle possible next!
This candle is excellent! It really has the smell of fire in a snow covered wood. It really set the tone for my Norse mythology book. I especially love how the scent of burning wood lingers under the pines.
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.
Is this what Heaven smells like? I don't think I can imagine a better scent.
I have bought and enjoyed many Frostbeard candles, but this one is my favorite (and my first reorder!). The scent is, like the color, very /green/: a lovely, fresh smell. No one in my family of five dislikes this one, either, which often isn’t the case with my favorite scents. The scent is strong when unlit, as well, so if I leave the jar open, I often catch whiffs as I move around the room.
I am a huge Outlander fan, so I had to purchase this candle based on the name alone. The scent is amazing and filled the room up nicely. It was a perfect Fall scent! I would definitely recommend this candle.
Of all the candles I've purchased from Frostbeard, this one is probably the strongest. I'm pretty sensitive to smell, but this smells of incense, which surprisingly doesn't bother me and I actually kind of love it! The smell itself makes it feel like you're in a fortune-telling classroom, and when I close my eyes I envision professor Trelawney reading my future. This is one of my favorite candles by Frostbeard, highly recommend!
I quickly fell in love with the warm, masculine tones of Sherlock's Study. It has a rich, sweetness to it that feels made to be a mystery novel. A charming candle that I fully intend to buy again!
This beautifully scented candled is more chocolatey than coffee-scented and definitely triggered a craving for a mocha and a chocolate croissant from my favorite bookstore cafe. The candle has quickly become part of my weekend morning reading ritual.
Smokey and rainy, exactly as you’d imagine Sherlock’s study to smell, like a drizzly London day in the best way.
This really does what it says on the tin, it’s sweet and chocolatey, with a hint of coffee that is sure to make you think of your favourite coffeeshop and maybe a little hungry for chocolate pastries too!
I have ordered so many candles from Frostbeard and although I love them all, RDR is definitely a favourite! So happy Frostbeard delivers to Australia!!
I bought the candle as a birthday gift to my mom because she loves GOT and had to get the tarts for myself for fear of missing out lolol. The scent is amazing and quality is top notch, 100% satisfied with my first order and will order again in the future! Thanks!
He walked into another room. His pipe smoke is still curling in the air. You have seconds to hide before he sees you. Oh no...he's coming back! Then you notice that you've covered the floor with mossy footprints. Yeah, that's this candle. LOVE it!
Curling up to read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle with this amazing candle is the best possible thing. Scent is strong, but not overbearing, and makes me feel like I'm in the most comfortable, musty, well-loved study.
It’s my favorite candle to burn while I curl up in my own study and get lost in a good book :)
I hate buying candles I can’t smell first. But the descriptions were right on for these. They smell amazing and the price is right!
I couldn't imagine a better book-to-candle. I burn this when I'm reading one of the Outlander books or when I'm catching up on the series.
Rainy Day Reads is my absolute favorite candle. My whole apartment smells wonderful when I light this candle.
I absolutely love this candle!! It is probably my all time favorite out of all the Frostbeard candles I've tried. Has such a warm, cozy scent to it and a decently strong throw without being overwhelming. It's a scent that I can enjoy year round.
One of my favorites. I must have ordered this candle half a dozen times: it's a combination of light lemon and honest to goodness old book smell. We keep one burning in the client areas of our law office.
I definitely smell the chocolate more than the coffee, but that's just how I like it! This scent is definitely a little stronger than some of the other scents on here, but again, something like this should be!
This candle is by far my favorite. I love the smell of the cherrywood and the tobacco. I don't really know if it smells like rain, but this candle is like a hug in a jar to me. I've bought 4 so far and will continue buying them.
