Love how it smells & the scent notes were so accurate!!

My favorite!

The scent is not strong, and I didn't get it first, but now it's my favorite! Works for a small room. Smells so cozy and serene. I love to burn it when I'm working alone at my own pace, without interference and a sense of rush

So Nice

Smells so good, like a nice old bookstore. This candle is on the smaller side so I use it in my bedroom and I don't have a problem smelling it. The dusty linen comes through the most for me.

Wanted to love it

Upon unboxing the candle smelt good and I had high hopes because I’ve loved all my other candles from you guys but I couldn’t even get a scent while burning this candle. After several times burning it I still didn’t smell anything. Even asked my family if they could smell it and they all said no. I wanted to love this candle but it was a miss for me.

Lovely and ethereal

This candle smells of softness and sadness in one. Burns beautifully and just a fantastic purchase!


I finally found the candle that smells like books!
