Candle of the Month for September 2018

If your idea of a college study session involves a dim-lit pub, ancient wooden booths and some of the sharpest literary minds around, then you're in luck. This unique take on a back-to-school scent is inspired by the famous Oxford literary discussion group (aka book club), home to both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Writers have often found comfort in the back corner of a cozy pub, so grab a pint and pull up a chair. Get whisked away into a world where authors gathered to critique each other, fueled their imaginations and encouraged each other to create masterpieces.

This made me think of how I imagine Americans think of British pubs. Roaring fire, companiable silence, the occasional russle of a broadsheet newspaper turning (unlike the reality of puke smell, emphysemic curtains and lads saying “wahay!” when someone smashes a glass by accident. Please never make THAT candle!)

In short, it’s perfect. Really strong too. This is the Eagle and Child, as per the name, but also The Prancing Pony in Bree. It was worth every penny (and I’m including postage and customs fees in that)! BUY IT.

Love it!

So glad to start out autumn with the Inklings candle. Its color, fragrance, and book-ish theme are perfect for September.

Lovely fall scent!

A perfect fall scent, reminiscent of a cozy autumn with a book. The cider smell is just delightful.


I was not sure if I would like the scents this candle has cause I am more a floral/soapy scent person, but being a fan of both Tolkien and Lewis I had to give it a try. And boy, did it surpass my expectations! It smells exactly like I would imagine a cozy and dark-lit pub to smell like. Loved it!

Great Find!

I bought this as a gift for friend because it sounded so amazing. I had never bought a candle from Frostbeard before, so I was really hoping it was as good as it seemed. She LOVES it so much that I just bought one for myself!

p.s. the order was processed, shipped, and delivered very quickly
