We love the smell of old books! But not the rotten, mildewy kind – the sweet, papery sort. This soft, comforting scent 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.

Initial Thoughts:

I purchased the wax melts anticipating more of a paper scent based on the description and several reviews. It is a light scent, but I got strong smells of vanilla for some reason?? It is not a displeasing scent - but definitely nothing like paper or book pages to me. I'm hoping that once burned the scent will mellow out a little bit. Again - not displeased with this one, but not what I was expecting.

Amazing

I absolutely adore these wax melt, even though it costs a fortune to have then shipped to the UK (due to government taxes, not the store which charges a perfectly reasonable amount for international shipping) I still have to order them in bulk.
The scent is very subtle but makes a room smell cosy and lovely. Most realistic book scent I have found.

Immersing scent!

This candles scent is exactly as it promises. Light this candle, open a book, and suddenly you are immersed in your book with the soothing feel of an old favorite book with well-worn pages, even if the book is brand new!
The scent is a mild undertone, as expected of any candle that's not citrus-y or baking based. It is a warm scent, and does smell like an old book without the musty scent.

hard to describe

This one is nothing like what I was expecting, and doesn't have any of the paper scent of the Bookstore candle. I really don't know how to describe it, though there's something in it that's almost citrus-y to me. (But not like lemon polish notes.) I wouldn't say it's my favourite, and it's fairly light, but it's always interesting and gets my attention.
