Description

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.

Possibly my favorite

I don’t know if I really COULD ever pick a favorite Frostbeard, but it might be this one. Not an overwhelming scent but just enough to make you feel at home

Good smell

Very nice smell! I don't know if it smells exactly like old books or not, either way it smells very nice. My only complaint is that the wick had trouble burning when I first got it even after trimming the wick 1/4 of an inch as instructed.

Old book

The candle was a gift that was very much appreciated however the scent was more buttery vanilla than old books. However, it is the thought that counts right?

This one is OK, but...

Book Cellar is my favorite. When will more be available?
