Great look and scent. Unlike other candles I have purchased, this burns abnormally fast. I have been burning this one for 2 weeks in the AM and another Allison’s has been burning 7-8 weeks. This is smaller- has been too short a time
I absolutely love all of Allison's' candles!! This one smells like a great old library and makes me feel like I have been transported into Poe's home. All of these candles are so good!
I don't know how but it smells like a warm, happy bookstore...
I keep sniffing this wonderful candle, trying to figure out why this smells like every happy memory all at once. There is something almost smokey but not smokey (probably the musk? because it's smoky like unlit incense, not like lapsang souchong tea). This is not an overpowering scent, nor is it musty. The best I can describe? Imagine James Joyce and James Baldwin have written 80 romance letters to each other, which were then kept in a cedar chest for two decades. THAT is what this candle smells like.
