The most treasured collection of antique tomes and texts. A library to dwarf all libraries. Towering oak shelves, stone walls and mysterious doors. Plenty of nooks to hide away and lose yourself. But don't be foolish and let this candle guide your way - burn it safely away from books... and hope the flame doesn't glow blue.

Vague and Dusty

It is hard to say what this candle smells like, but it does remind me of old books! There is a subtle earthier element to this candle, and I would say it is also fairly mild.

love this candle

I had to buy this candle because I work in archives. Great scent!

Fresh and earthy

Archives makes you feel like you are stepping down into a damp cellar to explore a long forgotten stash of history. It is much more fresh than I expected, but in a rain soaked earth way. I am not sure about the "tomes" component, since as an Archivist myself, I don't get the old paper smell I would have expected. Good scent nonetheless.


Interesting scent!!

Jay (Laurel, MD)
Great Scent

Another unique but pleasant scent from Frostbeard! The stone and tomes definitely come through but there's also an underlying fresh scent similar to the high storm candle. Throw is also pretty good considering it's rated as a mild scent.
