We love the smell of old books! But not the rotten, mildewy kind – the sweet, papery sort. If you’re like us, then you’ll love our candle that smells just like those old books. This soft, comforting book-scented candle 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.

Very pleasant scent but not super strong and perfumey. It does have an essence of old books.

Why did I wait?

This is my first time purchasing this scent, though I have tried a number of other candles. Huge fan. Might be my favorite of the permanent candles. The vanilla undertone really makes a difference!

Excellent Cangle

I don't usually like soy candles because they typically have very little throw; they smell great, but only if you're standing right over them. That is definitely NOT the case with these. Old Books not only smells fantastic, but has great flow. I don't have a huge living room, but it fills it nicely.

Smells horrible!! Quite a few reviewers said they could barely smell it, but I find this stinky smell overwhelming. I should have read the return/exchange policy before lighting it. Definitely do not recommend this scent.
