Candle of the Month for October 2018

'Tis the season for spookish delights - ghosts, hauntings, and cursed plays. Witches brewing in the woods; what strange cauldron concoction boils o'er the flames?

Familiar notes of herbal incense fill the air, but with a dagger-sharp twist adding earthy depth. With the full moon shining bright, let this classic fragrance set the scene... ere the night reaches it's final act.

Grab a cozy blanket and warm beverage, and be swept away into a world of treacherous plots. Whether you prefer mystery novels, thrillers or classic literature and plays, Toil & Trouble is the perfect companion for any scary read this Halloween season.


Patchouli, Clary Sage, Cypress

Sweet, slightly soapy, with notes of lime

Sweet, slightly soapy, with notes of lime. When lit, the scent profile is almost like a citrus insense with a medium throw.

I would suggest Frostbeard add a few more earthy notes to the candle (e.g. Book Cellar; Old Forrest) to round out the soapy notes.

Earthy and Soothing

This is a pleasantly herbal fragrance— very woodsy and dewy. It is a fairly powerful scent, but it is pleasant and relaxing. I really enjoy it. (Also, I would want to inhale this scent all day if I had a cold— the sensation of sniffing the candle recalls drinking soothing tea). A wonderful scent for the autumn!

Love Frostbeard!

Another winner! Love the cypress!! Thank you so much for these amazing candles.


I realize this is meant to be a fall/Halloween-y scent, but for me, it's redolent of green, mossy rock piles in a thick forest. I'm a sucker for patchouli, but I found the plant and wood notes to be much stronger. I don't think I'd burn this every day, but for just the right mood, it's perfect for my study.

Unusual fall scent

This is my first candle of the month from Frostbeard Studio and I'm so impressed! Based on the description I probably wouldn't have purchased this for myself, but I'm grateful for the subscription because I love this scent so much. To me it's distinctively a fall candle, but definitely unusual. It's earthy and refreshing, sort of like a farmer's market in the fall. I love it!
