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.

Feels Like I'm Actually There

One of my lifelong wishes is that I could have just gotten to sit down and smoke a pipe with Lewis and Tolkein and co. in their weekly Inklings meeting. This felt like actually being there. I do think the tobacco scent could be a little stronger but the cider comes through delightfully!

Hands down my favorite from Frostbeard!

Love, love, LOVE this one! I have enjoyed all of the candles I've ordered from Frostbeard, but this one is the best! The cider smell is a nice bright contrast to the deeper oak and pipe tobacco scents. This is a cozy scent. Perfect for cooler days. The throw is strong on this one as well. It easily fills my giant living room.

Love these wonderful candles!

When I was introduced to these wonderful scents, I was intrigued. I decided to give one a try and bought a couple for my daughter who loves books and some of these magnificent smells as much as I do. We both loved them and can't wait to try more. Please keep making these wonderful candles!!


This one really grew on me. At first, I wasn't sure how I felt about it, but after a couple of hours, I was in love. I wish I'd grabbed another one while I had the chance!

autumn bliss

A lovely scent that permeates the room without overpowering it -- my candle was one of the ones with a wax issue, so I've been digging out the wax and using it in a diffuser, which actually might be the best possible result: it keeps the scent steady and even throughout the house, especially when it's on for several hours at a time. It's not as heavy on any of the major named scents as some other candles, but that's likely what makes it so great!
