Frostbeard - Best of Etsy 2015

Ever since I was a kid, I've had an attachment to books.  They grew my imagination and let me 'travel' to places near and far long before I had two nickels to rub together.  I'll never be one to switch to reading on a Kindle.....I need to feel and smell the pages.  Yes, I smell the pages of musty old books at used book stores. And not ashamed to admit it.  Which is why I think today's shop, Frostbeard Studio, is the perfect small gift for any book lover.  They make small batch soy candles named after some classic novels & smells reminiscent of bookstores and coffee shops. 

It's like I can almost smell them......

I'm dying to smell Old Books in person (see above)....they describe it as a combination of paper, dust, newsprint, with a hint of vanilla.  Done & done.

There's a whole book lovers line which could make for a great gift basket.  A few of my favorites are (see if you can guess the novels):

  • Gatsby's Mansion (hints of champagne fizz, sea mist, & daisy).  Get it...Daisy?!?  Clever folks.
  • Through the Wardrobe (smells of Aspen winter, apple wood, & spruce tree).
  • Pemberly Gardens (fresh roses with a hint of lilac & hyacinth)
  • The Shire (oakmoss, clover, aloe, with a hint of cherry pipe tobacco)
  • Wizardry Buttery Drink (butterscotch overtones, with hints of creme brûlée and butter rum)
