Burnin' Up #7: Frostbeard Studio Candles + Tarts
If you're a lover of curling up with a good book with a cozy candle flickering nearby, you need Frostbeard Studios in your life. They bring the scents you've loved to read about to life in the form of soy candles and wax tarts. They're based out of Minneapolis, MN (holla - shop local!!) and literally everything they make is so.much.fun. -- not to mention it all smells amazing. I picked up a few things for myself and for my mom for mother's day and I thought I'd share with you what I got!
Both my mom and I love burning wax tarts to make our home smell nice, so for her I picked up Old Books (she's also a big reader). It has a nice sweet, book smell. It's not exactly how I think old books smell, but I don't think I want that exact smell wafting through my home anyway... (musty?? no thanks) but it does conjure up the image of an old library and cozy reading.
For myself, I got Gatsby's Mansion (The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite stories of all time). This has a fresh, floral spring scent. It's not overwhelming, just really nice and light. I also picked up The Shire, because I'm a big LOTR fan. This has sort of a perfume-y fresh scent - and it's much sweeter than Gatsby's Mansion. I prefer this scent out of the three.
I've burned both of my tarts so far - they don't have the best scent throw but I still love them because they're unique and not what you typically find in stores.
Lastly, I got a Headmaster's Office candle for myself, and the tarts for my mom. I love love love this scent, nearly as much as I love Harry Potter, for which I assume this is named! This has a musky scent, with hints of tobacco, vanilla and maybe even books? I tend toward spicy, smokey scents, and if you do, too - this will be right up your alley.
Not only are the scents amazing, but I love the cute packaging, and the appeal to book lovers. Supporting small business is awesome and you can feel good about purchasing from Frostbeard Studios - you won't regret a thing! Highly recommend their amazing candles + tarts!
