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.

Very nice smelling soy candle

I work from home and my small office is in my basement and as basements often do, mine smells a little musty. This candle has changed that, thankfully. I can't honestly get my imagination to stretch far enough to consider the scent like "old books", but nonetheless, it is a very pleasant scent. I love that the wax is made from soy and therefore burns 'cleaner' and leaves very little wasted product behind. I am satisfied with my purchase and am looking forward to any "deals" seller might offer in the future.

Old books

I finally decided to try this famous scent. It's surprisingly fresh and also comforting. I found myself really savouring the smell when the melts were burning.

Very gentle smell

Smelling it in the tin won't give you a lot of information. It's the kind of candle that even when I burn it, I can't really register it. Though if you walk outside and come back in, you'll get a nice little "oh!" moment.

Pleasant Smell

I think this smells more like cucumber than old books but I get where they were going with this scent. Overall a pleasant smell. Throw is moderate with the wax melts.
