This is not your ordinary forest. The trees here feel like they might be slightly... awake. Watching you when your back is turned, branches swaying and whispering when there is no wind. Enjoy the deep, earth & wood fragrance, but do not dare to linger.

Kaitlynn F. (Baton Rouge, LA)
Does not smell

I love this store, and the bookstore candle is my all-time favorite candle. I wanted to try this one since I'm reading LOTR right now. This one just doesn't smell when lit, though. It smells pleasant when you open the lid and sniff before lighting it, but I get nothing when it's lit.

So sorry you're having a hard time smelling the fragrance. We value your feedback so we might need to change this one to a 'mild' scent instead of 'mild/moderate.' If you haven't already, make sure to keep it lit long enough so the entire top is melted and try putting it in a smaller room. Email us if that doesn't help :)


Love these candles

Ashley (Avon Lake, OH)
Love this scent!

It's earthy, but the fig and spices give it a warm, slightly sweet note that just pairs beautifully. It is one of my new favorite scents.

Matthew C. (Branford, CT)
Lovely but very mild scent

I love the scent of this one. Smelling it up close is great. But the scent throw is incredibly mild. I use 2 blocks in the wax melter in a tiny room and it barely scratches the surface.

Eric H. (Murrells Inlet, SC)
My go-to for fresh and outdoorsy

The old forest is what I like to put on when I want to feel a little closer to nature in my office. It smells slightly damp (not musty) and fresh, like a few hours after a short rain. When I close my eyes and smell this candle, I'm taken to an enchanted forest with toadstools and fairies.
