How does it work? That’s easy, just like with other subscription based services, once you’ve signed up for our Candle of the Month Club service a new literary themed candle will be sent straight to your door at the beginning of every month. Each of our candles are made in-house by a member of our team and is crafted with the same skill and love that went into the piece of work which inspired the candle. In one way or another, each of our candles are inspired by literature, some are more specific and named after singular works of literature, such as our Sherlock’s Study candle, while other are more generally bookish, like our Rainy Day Reads candle.

Preface

In the beginning, Frostbeard was just a glimmer of an idea in the back of the minds of co-founders Roxie and Tom. In fact, Frostbeard was originally a pottery studio. With Roxie being a ceramist, and Tom a commercial animator, they only had two goals for a new business: become self-employed and make a living as artists. In the beginning, Frostbeard sold mugs, plates, and bowls at local craft fairs, shops, and on Etsy. It was one year later that the spark was struck that eventually lead to the creation of Frostbeard’s first book inspired candle.

Today, we make over 50 different book inspired candles between our seasonal, permanent, and specialty collections. The first candle we made was the Oxford Library candle, which is still available today! This candle came about through some untraditional means. Roxie had been spending days trying to find a book themed candle online, but when her search eventually proved unfruitful she decided to take matters into her own hands and DIY her first literary inspired candle. This candle was met with love and praise by anyone within sniffing distance and the rest, as they say, was history.

Prologue

Though we’ve grown quite a bit since that first candle, we’re still a small, local business sitting in an awesome, hard-working DIY neighborhood in South Minneapolis. We take pride in crafting each candle with care and attention to detail. We only make things we love and are passionate about - it is that level of care and devotion (and nerdiness) that has allowed us to grow into the company we are today.

Are you ready to join our Candle of the Month Club? Signing up is easy. Still, have questions? Feel free to send us a message to learn more about this program or to answer any of your other questions. We look forward to welcoming you into our bookish bunch where we celebrate all things literary!

I love the earthiness of this scent. I also love that the company quickly sent me a replacement along with a free smalll candle when there was a mix-up with the delivery!

I love the popcorn and cola smell of this scent. I also love that the company quickly sent me a replacement when the post office delivered the original shipment to Kansas instead of Washington state!

Perfect wintry scent

This is such an enchanting scent. All of the notes are so well balanced. It is very wintry, and mysterious. I was afraid the tobacco would be too strong but it isn’t, and adds a really nice depth to the candle.

Unexpected but delightful

I thought it would be fairly earthy, and I would describe it more as fresh, but it smells lovely. Before burning it the spices smelled really strong, but once you start burning it the scents even out really nicely. It’s definitely giving whimsy and faerie. This is my first “mild” candle from Frostbeard, and it’s exactly what I would expect for throw.

A perfect warm scent for spring. Love this one!

Perfect! Reminds me of Emily Wilde

Loved this candle and the book that (I think?) inspired it. Lovely woodland scent.

Absolutely the best smell that has ever existed. I am not exaggerating. It’s better than fajitas.

I was not impressed with these candles, especially for the price. The scent was almost nonexistent with some, and others did not smell at all how they were described. They do burn cleanly and evenly, which is why I gave them 2 stars and not one, but I would not spend the money to buy them again.

Don't get stuck in a snowdrift without one

Very pine-forward with sweet, tobacco-y notes in the background. A lighter scent than the other candles I've purchased from Frostbeard, and I mean that as a positive. It's also an excellent candle to have burning in the background to complement a steaming cup of black tea? I'm assuming it's something to do with tannins.

Spring candles

I love the various scents of your candles. Scents are strongly attached to memories and these bring back wonderful ones! Thanks so much!

Would buy this again

I bought this as a gift and was extremely tempted to keep it myself. Perfect fall candle and decently strong. Love it!

So-so

Once lit, I feel these lost a little of the distinct chai smell. Still enjoyable enough, but I've enjoyed other candles more.

Give it a shot!

At first, I thought this would be more of an incense-like scent, which are not always my favorite. However, it really is a pleasant more mellow background scent! Definitely one I am glad to have tried!

Another favorite

I always have to order Hafling Hills as soon as it comes out so I decided to try Faire Door and I am so glad I did. The earthy scents are comforting and the fern gives it a softer spring note.

A little sweet but nice

I like this one. As others have said it can be a little sweet smelling, so I only burn it for so long. It has a nice throw and fills a room without being overwhelming.

Smells like vanilla soap

I was optimistic given the ingredient list, but sadly the candle smells like vanilla soap rather than old books. The scent itself is pleasant, but I was hoping for more than a vanilla candle.

Great scent with unique ideas. Small for the cost though.

If you want to feel like you're wandering through the forest looking for fairies, this is your scent. I love it.

glorious

This scent is amazing. My partner isn't a big accented candle fan but he's in love with this one. Burn it in a small room so it fills the space and it'll transport you!

Does not have a strong smell. Also does not smell like pipe tobacco.

This is a keeper!

I hope this one sticks around, because it’s everything I could want in a scent. The warm cinnamon and cloves are toasty but so spa-like. It’s a soothing candle I’d burn year-round.

It smells wonderful!

I bought this candle as a gift for my daughter, and it smells just lovely. It's not too strong, and she loves it too.

The scent is AMAZING. Perfect for springtime at our little mountain house.
