NOTES | This is a 9oz jar made with all-natural soy wax. Soy wax is eco-friendly and burns cleaner than other waxes. It is also easy to clean in cases of accidental spills or if you should wish to keep the jar! Each candle comes with a resealable lid.
Please note that some frosting may occur. This is perfectly normal for soy candles and does not affect the scent or burn time. Frosting is merely an indicator of natural soy wax.
Each candle is also made in small batches so there may be very minor variations in color or scent.

  1. Graceley Knox

    I love the fresh cotton scent of this one with the hint of cologne. Perfect addition to my bookish candle collection!

  2. Hannah Bennett

    I LOVE this candle for when I’m swooning over a book character and don’t have a book specific candle to burn. It’s so fun and super versatile.

  3. Literary Love Books (verified owner)

    This candle smells AMAZING! I’m a huge romance reader and I always talk about my book boyfriends to my actual boyfriend. He has now taken to glaring at this candle instead of my books! 😃😃😃

  4. Malene

    Fresh and clean! Another amazing candle. And I love the title!

  5. cmelone

    This scent reminds me of a warm summer day with a fresh breeze. It’s perfect for burning on a sunny weekend afternoon – or when you want to be reminded of one.

  6. egloring90 (verified owner)

    This has got to be one of my new favorite scents! It’s fresh and masculine, but definitely not overpowering. It’s the perfect scent for imagining what your favorite book boyfriend would smell like!

  7. Audrey Johnson

    This candle has such a fresh and clean scent, just like a freshly showered boyfriend.

  8. Allison (verified owner)

    I loved this candle! It’s definitely more masculine, but the scent is still pleasing and subtle. I did a giveaway for the candle on my Facebook page (got one for myself too) and the winner also said she loved it!

  9. Jane Barrilleaux

    As someone who prefers masculine scents, this was a perfect choice! I love that it smells a bit musky but still clean and not overpowering. This is a great candle to have burning during the fall/winter – it’s so cozy!

  10. Anna (verified owner)

    Oh man, I don’t have enough words to express how incredible this candle is. The scents are perfect and it has the essence of making you feel like you’re wrapped up in a warm blanket. As someone who has so many book boyfriends, this candle is perfect every time I crack open a book I love, it’s the perfect companion. *happy sigh*

  11. DoriOwl (verified owner)

    I love this one! It literally feels like a boyfriend or at least what I would want my man to smell like (clean and musky) I need a million of these!!!

  12. Shayna Snyder (verified owner)

    I absolutely LOVE the color AND smell of the Book Boyfriend candle! I can’t wait to take pictures with it! The perfect scent to go with the PERFECT READ!

  13. riddlesreviews (verified owner)

    This is such a refreshing scent! It’s like clean laundry and a hint of cologne, and it makes me want to snuggle up with my boyfriend and read. This is exactly what I imagine some of my favorite book boyfriends to smell like after showering and putting on clothes straight from the wash. *swoon!*
