Wonderful scents

These scents are wonderful during a PNW winter. I use them in my office and the scents are relaxing for me but not overpowering to those who may be sensitive in the experience I have had here.

Love it!

I ordered several different sizes, 9 in total. I appreciate that there were no duplicates! I didn't like the Wizardy Buttery Drink, it's kind of cloying, but had a friend who was super excited to take it. I liked all the others though, especially Marsh Girl! Mystery boxes are fun and the you can't beat the price point.

Love it!

I haven't actually lit the candle because I'm saving it for a specific occasion. I sniff it regularly though and I love it. There hasn't been a single purchase of a candle here that I have been disappointed by.

Fantastic Deal!

Loved both of my mystery candles! One was in perfect shape with the other having a small ding on the tin lid. Nothing that was an issue at all. I’ll have to get more next time!

A fun gamble!

Mystery Fragrance is a fun way to try candle scents which I might not otherwise buy. I've purchase a few of these to keep on hand for gifts, but a couple of them I'm definitely keeping :)

Well Balanced

I was concerned that this scent would be too sweet and cloying with the cranberries but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the sweetness of the cranberry is perfectly balanced by the woodiness of the winter birch. Throw is excellent with the wax melts.

A Breath of Fresh Air

This takes me back to my winter hikes. The quiet and stillness of the trees, the crisp winter air, the hint of sunlight. I only wished I'd ordered the tin instead of the plastic-container melts.

Delightfully Cozy

I wasn't sure about the scent when I first opened the jar, but once it was burning, it was lovely. Makes me feel like I'm in front of a fire in a cottage in the autumn woods.

Holiday Hygge

The absolute smell of the season

This is the best Holiday scent. Sweet but complex. Just like the season, it’s relaxing but full of celebration

The Perfect Pine

There are lots of evergreen scented candles out there, but matching it with the bonfire aroma just elevates this above the rest

It’s fundamental

This is the “required reading” of candles.

New Paperback

I loved the mystery candle I received, New Paperback—paper, fresh ink and sawdust. Frostbeard came through again! I can smell all three ingredients!

Scrumptious!

Oh, man does it smell good! Doesn’t disappoint! Good enough to eat! It’s a great fragrance all year ‘round, in my opinion.

Smells Good Enough to Drink!

It’s yummy. Smells so good. It’s a moderate fragrance. My only complaint is that I would love for it to be a strong fragrance, but then I feel that way about all Frostbeard candles! Am addicted!

Cozy and comfortable

Love this combination of coffee and fireplace .. good for snuggling up and relaxing on a cold day. Nice throw and scents blend well.

Fresh and clean

Nice clean fresh scent that gives off a nice throw while burning. Not overly herbal or floral at all. Pleasant addition to my rotation.

Subtle and pleasant

Honestly I do prefer a slightly more robust scent in my candies so I might not return for this. But... the scent itself is fantastic. When it is noticed it is appreciated. I just wish it was noticed a little more frequently is all. (I ordered this along with Christmas in the Burrows which was more at my wanted level of scent presentation. If I had gotten this without the comparison... i might not have noticed.)

A smokey Applewood scent that is transportive!

Fresh mountain air

It’s like wandering a mountain on a fresh spring morning. A beautiful blend, crisp and clean.

Spot on!

I love this scent. It’s cozy and as it burns you get fresh wafts of leather, then coffee, then rich deep wood - just like if you were wandering around most bookstores. I like the balance of deep, cozy scents with a hint of sweet. It’s not too overpowering if someone is more sensitive to scents.
