We love the smell of old books! But not the rotten, mildewy kind – the sweet, papery sort. If you’re like us, then you’ll love our candle that smells just like those old books. This soft, comforting book-scented candle makes you want to curl up in your favorite reading chair and leaf through stacks of worn, well-loved stories. Vanilla overtones transform into a lovely, complex aroma when melted.

A favorite!

I love this one! It brings library memories.

I'm warming to this one

First time around I thought this didn't smell old enough. Now it's growing on me. I tend towards Frostbeard's musty dusty scents like book cellar and old forest, so had expected that to come through here. Didn't on the first batch I received a while back but this one seems closer to the mark.
