    Didn't smell anything like any old bookstore I've ever been to.

    Old, but not books

    Way too much perfume essence. Very pungent. Overpowers a room quickly.

    Hi Barrett! We're disappointed that you don't love our Old Books candle. Please email us at so we can find you a scent that your nose will enjoy more and can make this right! Thank you in advance!

    Not the same smell of old

    The candle smells good!.. smells like clean linen. However, its not the traditional Old Books smell that I am used to. It used to smell like hose water, bring back the old scent!

    Hi CJ! Thanks for your review. We transitioned to a new oil vendor this year as our previous one was having a hard time keeping up with the demands of our growing business (a good problem to have!). We worked with them closely to match or even enhance our existing fragrances, as we know how important they are to loyal customers like you! it sounds like Old Books may have missed the mark a bit, and we'd love the opportunity to make this right. Please reach out to us at and we can go from there! Thanks so much!

    Unique and Bookish!

    Old Books remains one of my favorite Penn and Beech candles. The scent is strong and makes you feel like you are surrounded by leather-bound books in a cozy library.

    BEST Candle Scent Ever!

    I am absolutely obsessed with the Old Books candle! It’s the perfect fall candle scent. I bought it last fall for the first time because I was intrigued. Instantly fell in love with it and had to buy it again this year! It’s simply the best!
