Summer Seasonal Candles

June 1 - August

It’s vacay time! You know what that means: blue skies, beach days, and plenty of sunscreen. We’re welcoming the warm weather here at Frostbeard with our summer seasonal selection, consisting of <a href=" https:="">Cliffs of Insanity, Fairy Tale Ending, The Old Forest, and Trashy Romance Novel. Whether you’re looking for ocean scented candles or a floral fragrance, you’ll find something in our seasonal collection that channels your ideal version of summer.

These scents might seem fairly different from one another, but we think each captures a very particular aspect of this time of year, from the magic of exploring old growth forests on a quiet, warm day to the unbridled exuberance of embarking on an adventure along the seaside. Our summer collection is perfect for a lazy day indoors when you need a retreat from the blazing sun or afternoon rain. Just pour yourself a refreshing drink, light one of Frostbeard’s signature scents, and let your latest and greatest read carry you off on a new journey!

While spring is still a little iffy here in Minnesota – will it be thunderstorms or blizzards today?! – summer makes us grateful to be northerners. The great outdoors is practically begging us to go on a hike, or kayak, or enjoy a rooftop restaurant. Sadly, the magic of a hazy summer’s eve can’t last. You can pick up this selection of seasonal candles from June to August. Be sure to stock up so you can bring summertime inside, even in the dead of winter!

Cliffs of Insanity

An irresistible, nautical scent will have you dreaming of the ocean and whispering declarations of undying devotion to the Cliffs of Insanity candle. Sword fights, subterfuge, and a love to surpass all other loves are wrapped up together in this refreshing blend of sea mist and teakwood. If you believe in the power of bedtime stories and fairy tales, this is the one for you. Pro tip: for a particularly literary experience, light it and stare longingly into the distance, waiting for your very own stable boy-turned-pirate to race to your rescue. Or, if you’re more inclined towards action, get ready to challenge someone to a duel!  

Scents:

Sea Mist, Caribbean Teakwood

Fairy Tale Ending

Summer is peak wedding season, which means our inner romantic is ready to daydream about daring elopements, mystical unions by the seashore, and true love blossoming in the heart of an enchanted forest. Whether you’re celebrating your friends’ happy ending or setting the scene for your own sweet story, you can channel the whimsy of classic yarns and live happily ever after with Fairy Tale Ending, our tribute to love in all of its beautiful forms. With delicate tones of honey and a crisp top-note of champagne, this candle makes the perfect small housewarming gift for the happy couple – or the ideal complement to a dreamy afternoon of reading.

Scents:

Honey, Champagne Bubbles

The Old Forest

Hiking is a popular activity here in the land of 10,000 lakes, so we’ve seen our share of gorgeous, wooded expanses. But every once in a while, we’ll stumble upon a particular copse of trees that feels somewhat otherworldly. You know the feeling – walking into a clearing filled with green-tinged light, the scent of fresh sap and earth filling your nostrils, the calls of wildlife filling the air. It’s in places like this that we wish the woods could speak to us! Light The Old Forest scent to channel that mystical, mysterious energy that promises adventure to those brave enough to seek it. Sit back with a paperback, and imagine yourself in a forest primed for a hero’s quest, whether that’s a spooky wood or an ancient, verdant space.

Scents:

Rosewood, Fig, Dirt, Spices

Trashy Romance Novel

We spend quite a bit of time cooped up indoors here in the frigid North, so you’d better believe we’re hitting the great outdoors once it gets above freezing. And once it’s finally beach weather? You’ll have to drag us kicking and screaming from the lakeshore, because we’re not going to be doing anything besides stretching out on the sand and cracking open the newest romance release! Trashy Romance Novel captures the essence of everything we love about this genre: the ridiculous covers featuring muscle-bound men and enraptured women, the steamy love triangles and scandalous plotlines, and even the sweet beginnings of first love. It’s all here, floating on fruity, floral waves that are just begging you to settle in with your favorite romcom.

Scents:

Peach, Citrus, Cherry Blossom

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.

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.

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.
