Size

Meet Old Books’s mustier, more sophisticated grandpa. Book Cellar is a little bit earthier, a little less sweet and every bit as charming. Rich and loamy with soft hints of vanilla bean, this candle smells just like the kind of magic found only in an antiquarian’s book collection.

I really like the scent of this and the color is great too. I purchased a Basement candle from another site and Book Cellar is definitely much more pleasant. I only wish the throw was stronger, but anticipated that since the description shows Mild. This is a great company! Super pleased with my purchases so far!!

Very accurate - That's got pros and cons

Without question, this candle scent transforms my space. It truly smells like opening a door into a dark basement full of old collectibles in storage. It's uncannily true to life. Whether or not that's how I want my apartment to smell is another question. I've found this is a good one to melt when I'm also melting something like Little Briar Rose or Sassenach--botanical/florals to match the rich earthy dirt smell. But the dusky basement smell isn't one I'm actively enjoying very much. Really clever and well done, just "too real" for my little space.

Transported Back to My Favorite Old Bookstores

This candle made me gasp - it's an exact scent memory of so many old bookstores I've loved. Earthy and cozy, it's kind of blowing my mind how you all captured this scent. Wow. I'm going to gift it to all my bookstore-loving friends who're missing spending hours curled up among the stacks...

Very pleasant.

I would have given this one five stars, but it's just a bit TOO mild. I had trouble telling the candle was burning, and couldn't smell it very well unless I was extremely close to it. The scent of vanilla dominates, which is perfect. It's a very peaceful, non-intrusive scent, and I liked this candle and would get it again. However, I do hope you guys will experiment with increasing the scent just a bit.
