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.

Mmm nostalgia

There's nothing better than the smell of musty basements. Nothing. I love this candle so much, and even though it smells amazing straight out of the box, it's even better when lit.

Great smell, not very stong

I ordered the Book Cellar candle and it smells fantastic! The description is pretty accurate and I'm happy with that. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that the smell is not very strong. I can smell it when I stand right next to the candle, but hardly at all when I am across the room.

Spot-on Scent

I love this smell; it is spot-on. However, I would recommend a few tweaks. First, while the smell is awesome on cold, it just doesn't permeate while burning. Second, I think the wicks used are a tad too thick for the wax. They become a bit smoky while burning. Third, the frosting that occurs with these candles causes spots within the coloring and really hinders the overall look of the candles. I understand this is a natural occurrence with soy; perhaps that's why most soy candles are naturally colored or blended with paraffin. Anyway, those are my suggestions. Otherwise, keep at it - I love the concept and the realistic scents you are producing.

Almost Perfect!!

I have searched the interwebs for a candle that will even get close to the pages of old musty books that does not have an overpowering leather smell. The more must and paper scented the better! This candle is amazing!! The only complaint I have is the scent is very mild unlike others I have purchased from Frost Beard. If it were stronger I would be a dedicated buyer. I'm almost tempted to buy 10 more to fill the house with! Either way they are my favorite candle company!!

My favorite scent so far!

I adore these candle scents. I have tried 4 so far, and Book Cellar is my favorite. Gives such a cozy feel to any room. Now I must try them all!
