We love the smell of old books! But not the rotten, mildewy kind – the sweet, papery sort. This soft, comforting scent 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.

Interesting scent!

Smells very much; not sure if its old books, but it's an interestingly refreshing smell!

Polarizing

I'm trying not to be repulsed by the scent, because I love Frostbeard and the smell of old books. But this does not smell like old books. The cold throw provoked a sense of disgust, but I thought lighting it might reveal something that could explain why some people love this candle. Not so. Maybe this is the cilantro of candles: some people love it, and some people find it disgusting.

Some have mentioned smelling cucumber, others vanilla, other mold. Combine those three and you are probably on the right track.

And it is NOT as subtle as others have remarked. Once lit, the candle's scent pervades the space. You have to really, REALLY want to smell this scent to light this candle--no escaping the odor once it's lit.

Subtle scent

I had to try this one out of curiosity. I don't think I would've gotten "old books" from the scent without seeing the name, but it's a subtle and pleasant scent nevertheless.

Not quite as strong, but accurate...

This comes as close as I've ever seen, I just wish it were a tad stronger.

Fresh Xerox Smell

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this scent is not very evocative. If anything it's closer to fresh xerox paper than old books, and I do love that smell as well, but it's not what I was looking forward to with this purchase. Check out the Bookstore scent instead! I worried that it would be too sweet but it's perfect.
