Darcy's Parlour is elegant and refined. The leather, antique wood, and tobacco notes all come through without being overpowering. Smells like a scholar's study from a different era. Whether you're reading Austen's books or watching any of the Austen TV/film adaptations, this candle is the perfect accompaniment. (Reviews of fragrances are highly subjective and whether or not you'll like a particular fragrance is personal, so, for reference, my favorite Frostbeard candles are: Wizardy Buttery Drink, Back to Wizard School, The Wall, Through the Wardrobe, The Inklings, and Snow Maiden. My least favorite candles are: Oxford Library, Book Cellar, Gatsby's Mansion, Christmas in the Great Hall, Bah Humbug, Spooky Stories, and Old Books.)
I bought this candle almost a year ago and used almost half of it it in the first month. Since then I light it every so often for a little bit just to appreciate it for a short time before blowing it out. I wish they would bring it back - it’s one of my favorites ever! I can’t bring myself to finish it off for fear it’ll be gone forever.
It’s a lovely scent - a mild leather and smoke. if it isn’t Darcy’s parlour, it’s Lockwood listening to Nelly Dean or St. John making a proposal to go to India.
Easily one of my favorites!
Love this candle. Its smell reminds me of visiting historical homes, like when you tour Longfellow's house or maybe Mount Vernon. It captures the essence of its name perfectly - it brings to mind a elegant, stately parlour on a peaceful country estate with just the right chair for evening reading and deep thinking ;)
While it is very leather-forward when unlit, the lit candle provides a nice balance of the leather and tobacco scents. As others have noted, the wood notes are rather subtle. Very pleasant for my home office, as well as for curling up in front of a movie.
This is a candle that even my husband likes, and has swiped for his office.
