Super Scent Sleuthing

We’ve instilled the classic scents of a Victorian-era study in the Sherlock's Study candle. With hints of cherrywood, tobacco, and rain, you’ll feel right at home amongst your sea of books as you solve your next big case. With a medium scent strength, the Sherlock's Study candle is subtle enough to enjoy while reading without overwhelming your home.

The Art of Deduction

Like Sherlock cracking a case, our literary scent scholars used their super sleuthing skills to sniff out the fragrances that, when combined, created the most evocative depiction of our favorite detective's study. Whether your olfactory skills are equal to that of the man himself, or you’re just a casual connoisseur of fine-smelling home decoré, you’re sure to enjoy the rich, earthy scents that emanate from the Sherlock's Study candle.

Gear up to write your very own mystery or curl up with a good read with the Sherlock's Study candle. Our sleuthy chandlers might not wear fun hats, or trench coats, but they do have an uncanny ability to deduce the perfect combination of scents that will create the optimal investigative mood. You may think that cherrywood, tobacco, and rain seem like an odd combination. But through deduction, we came to realize that when combined, these unique scents add up to create an aroma that we believe perfectly mimics that of the famous detective’s inner sanctum.

Candle Safety

Even Sherlock doesn’t mess with fires, and neither should you. For safety reasons, always make sure that you burn your Frostbeard candles on a heat resistant surface away from children and pets - that means you, Toby! We recommend that you stop burning your Sherlock’s Study candle once only half an inch of wax remains in the container. You can view a full list of our safety instructions here. Below are some additional safety tips that should help your candles last longer, safely.

Helpful Tips

  • Trim wick to 1/4" before each use.
  • Burn no longer than 2-3 hours at a time.
  • After use, cover with lid to reduce soot.

Quality Materials, Responsibly Made

Each of our enigmatic scents is crafted in-house by one of our talented chandlers. We’ve kept to the original way of brewing our candles, just like Sherlock would have in his time. Well, we don’t use whale oil or lead wicks, but everything else is much the same! We create our Sherlock's Study candle, along with the rest of our scholarly scented candles in small batches by hand. This process ensures that each candle is created with care and precision and allows us to use renewable, high quality ingredients. That being said, due to the fact that the candles are created in small batches means that their color may vary slightly from batch to batch, meaning that your final Sherlock's Study candle may look a bit different from the ones pictured above. But rest assured that we doing everything in our power to make each batch poured look as similar to the one before it as possible.

As mentioned before, we take pride in using only renewable ingredients while crafting our book themed soy candles. The process starts with locally sourced soy wax, and then proceeds with a lead-free cotton wick, hand-selected dye chips for color, and artfully combined fragrance oils for scent. The finished wax mixture then gets hand poured into one of our four different sized, 100% recyclable receptacles. At the end of its journey, all of our candles are certified 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

Sizing

We offer all of our book themed soy candles in one of four size variations; 2, 4, and 8 oz glass and tin candles and plastic tart packages. The 2 oz candle is the most popular for those looking to sample a scent before committing to a larger size. They also make great stocking-stuffer and party favors. Next, the 4 oz jar is the perfect gifting size. From birthdays to anniversaries, and everything in between, the 4 oz candles make the perfect small gift. Lastly, our 8 oz candles are our most obvious best seller. These candles can last for hours and give off plenty of light and scent. Additionally, we use the 8 oz sized candle for our monthly subscription boxes, sending a new book-themed full-sized candle to our subscribers each month.

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.

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.
