Bookish Scent Stories

Regular price $18.00


Candles inspired by some of our very favorite stories and literary characters. 


Usually female and sometimes bespectacled; a young woman who enjoys the company of her books. Has an intelligent, haughty, look rather than nerd.

Scent Story:

Honey Dew Melon & Canteloupe with warm vanilla woods.

Blackberry Molasses 

Quiet, stoic Jude grows up in the emotionally cruel color stuck town of Mallard, Louisiana never realizing the true majestic beauty of her black skin.

Scent Story:

A rich, deep blend of blackberries and sweet molasses.



Bitter Rose

Bitter Rose is a scent based on the literary character Sula Peace, an oxymoron herself from her name to where she lived.

As the Bottoms are at the top of the hills in Medallion, Sula Peace was a storm contradicted by her beautiful stemmed rose birthmark.

Scent Story:

The story of opposites, bitter is really sweet. Champagne with notes of cream and sugar fuse together with rose petals.


Fancy Girl

Inspired by Yellow Wife, Pheby straddles two worlds but does not wholly fit in either but does her very best to.

They cannot change the world, but they do what they can, and sometimes that’s extraordinary...

Scent Story:

Delicate yet bold, Fancy Girl blends magnolia, peony, freesia and white woods.



A word whispered to soothe a wound that just won’t heal. A simple pronouncement, the promise of a beginning in this one word.

Inspired by Stay with Me

This book had so many layers of drama and emotion, even with the book read and done, I still find myself wondering how did it all end up for these characters.

Scent Story:

A fruity fusion of strawberry and guava with passionfruit, mango and sweet vanilla.


Sunday at the Museum 

Golden energy, warm and bright. Sunflowers, soft light and small mercies.

Scent Story:

Golden apricot, pink peonies and a hint of praline creates a warm, romantic scent perfect for a summer evening.
