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!

Unique Blend

I get old books and the dusty library vibe from this candle without it being gimmicky. It's still a really nice scent while also fitting the theme, gave this one as gifts this year to family members who were thrilled.

Fantastic scent

This is so nice, it's atmospheric and moody without being heavy. Perfect for my library/office. I don't know how well it would throw in a wide open area but in a walled room it completely fills the area with scent.

Nice, but weak scent

The scent of the candle is pretty, but it's so weak that when I'm burning it, I can barely tell. I was disappointed for the price.

Subtle and atmospheric

I have been trying to get this candle for a while -- it always seemed out when I placed an order. I was SO glad to add it to my last order, and it does not disappoint! I love the not-too-sweet candles with depths of scent. This one is exactly that! I get rainy library vibes, with cracked old pages. The perfect atmospheric candle for cloudy days, hot tea, and writing beneath flickering light!
