I bought this candle because I LOVE the smell of old, musty books in an antique shop, and that's exactly what I got! Who would think dirt would smell so charming lol?! It's fantastic, which is why I haunt this website, in search of my next treat. P.S. Let me say I have yet to light the candle, and I probably never will, because I enjoy the fragrance all by itself. And the tin container it comes in looks perfect among my other book-related goodies in my library. Well done Frostbeard!
