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.

Mild, but great to mix with other bookish scents

I decided to try this out based on a review of Oxford Library (someone mixes the two as wax melts), and that was a great suggestion. I'm not sure I'd like it on its own because it's such a mild scent, but I can see it complimenting a lot of the other scents in addition to Oxford Library. Planning to try it out with Bookstore and Headmaster's Office next. I'm probably going to get a lot of these in wax melt form.

Mild, but Good

This is my favorite candle, I just wish the scent was a bit stronger. I have it paired up with a Rainy Day Reads candle and combined, the smell is soothing. I always light them when I'm working at my desk or about to watch a film.

LOVE this scent

This was one of the first scents that got me to purchase from Frostbeard Studios. I love the smell of aged paperbacks. Now this scent is a little sweeter than what I would think of for old pages, but I am addicted to it. One of my favorite scents!

Good scent, not old books though

Pleasant sweet candle...but not the scent of old books. I was most excited about ordering this one because the scent of old books is comforting. I was very sad once i burned it because it didnt smell like old books at all. However, it is still a nice sweet scent that is pleasant.
