Like this one

A Unique but yet pleasant candle. Surprised when I smelled it at first because it actually does smell like a library if you close your eyes. Good for book lovers I think. Fast shipping, like the box it came in too.


A very interesting scent, a little hard to describe. Has an "old" smell but not in a bad way at all. Like when you walk into an old building, kind of nostalgic like going back into your high school. It’s also fresh and clean too so old but new? I love it!

Love it

I got this as a gift for a friend and it was a hit! Haven’t been able to snag another one for myself yet but I keep trying because I loved the scent. Smells like a new book or a clean bookstore 👓📚


I have tried to find a candle that smells like books for years and this one is the closest! Its fresh, dusty and wonderful!


This is a real bookish sort of scent. I can smell the cotton the strongest but there's an earthy musk mixed in that works so well to bring the concept to life. The scent is great, but it's not very strong when burning the candle. Five star scent and packaging, but took a star off because the throw isn't like the other Darkwave candles I have tried. Still a great one!
