We love the smell of old books! But not the rotten, mildewy kind – the sweet, papery sort. If you’re like us, then you’ll love our candle that smells just like those old books. This soft, comforting book-scented candle 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.

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.

Just, nothing beats the satisfying smell of an old book, flipping through the pages as the smell waffs over, a precursor to (usually) a good book.

Very pleasant scent but not super strong and perfumey. It does have an essence of old books.

Smells great!

Why did I wait?

This is my first time purchasing this scent, though I have tried a number of other candles. Huge fan. Might be my favorite of the permanent candles. The vanilla undertone really makes a difference!
