Paperback. Tomorrow’s generation won’t even know what you are. Seriously. With inventions like Kindles, iPads, Tablets, and Smartphones, the idea of opening a bound book with hundreds of pages seems archaic.

But no, we haven’t forgotten you, Paperback. We haven’t forgotten you at all. We still care.

Yellowing pages, bent corners, creased covers, these are the paperbacks of yesteryear, and despite its appearance, the moment you flipped it open and inhaled that stale musty paper, it was like pure literary magic.

Rich Himalayan bamboo blended with a vanilla-hinted cedarwood, topped off with notes of driftwood and leather, it’s that calming nostalgia that only true old book enthusiasts could understand.

And for all you Tech people out there, wait 5 years. We’re certain your Kindles will never give off the same smell as our beloved old paperbacks.

    Oh my gosh. This candle. It can cure Cancer. I also am thoroughly enjoying the free “Dirty Hipster” mini candle. This shop is awesome, and I will definitely be purchasing more candles in the future.

    Shipping was great…it was purchased for an avid reader (originally from New York) as part of a birthday gift and she loved it!!

  5. Shannyn S.

    Not going to lie, didn’t think it would smell exactly like a paperback book but it does. Very impressed! I’m also very excited that it came with a great little sample candle!

    This candle shipped quickly and did not disappoint. It really does smell like old book pages, strangely. It will compliment my wife’s library loft quite nicely. They even threw in a small sample candle of another scent. Thanks, guys!

    This scent is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Clean, leather, paper, the musty smell of a used bookstore. The older, more yellowed paperbacks. So comforting, especially when reading. It’s not too heavy, but it’s strong enough to smell really soon after lighting. Big and high quality so very worth the price. And the shipping was very fast! Definitely one of my favorites that I’ll be purchasing again. It also came with a free coconut water lip balm which smells and feels great. I’ll be trying other things from this store in the future!

  10. Billie M.

  11. Corrie W.

    Such a cool idea and great for a book lover! They threw in another sample candle which is awesome. I recommend 🙂

  12. Kaytina F.

    So excited! This is the second time I’ve purchased this scent and I love it so much. Worth the price and more! My house is filled with the cozy scent of leather and old books. Appreciate the sample of soaps too! I’ll have to try the other scents but this is phenomenal.

    Originally received this scent as a sample when I bought a Lonely Hearts Club refresher. Wasn’t sure how I felt about it until I actually started burning it and found out how delightful it was! I love the prickling sensation in my nose from old book smell.

  16. Jasmine T.

    I cannot say enough good things about this candle. The Paperback has a really robust smell that takes you the library or your on private study. All the candles I have purchased have given me sheer euphoria feeling that is indescribable… ❤️

  17. Carrie F.

    Best candles and scents ever. Thank you for the wonderful sample candle as well. Thank you!

    It arrived quickly and is perfect! I am giving the paperback book scented candle to my sister who is a Librarian, and I think she will get a huge kick out of it! (I am keeping the old-fashioned library scent for myself!

    This was a little different than I expected it to be, but the more I kept coming back to it, the more I liked it. Very pleasant scent.
