  1. Jordan

    The scent of this candle is lovely—I hadn’t expected coffee and cotton to be two scents that go well together, but they really do! Unfortunately, the candle’s throw is extremely weak. Even sitting right next to it while it burns on my desk, I can hardly smell it at all.

    Perfect for mornings and curling up with a good book, this is my most frequently purchased candle. I always have at least one at all times. It’s the perfect go-to scent.

  3. Victoria Herrmann

    This scent was amazing. I received a free sample of it with one of my orders, and to me, it smells EXACTLY like the coffee shop in Barnes and Noble. It perfectly blends the coffee and book smells to create a lovely bookstore scent that feels so true to life. I’m not super into coffee scents, but this one was lovely!

  4. Mason (verified owner)

    This scent simply wasn’t for me, but my barista friend considers it her dream scent so it went to a good home!

  5. Love at First Write

    I love this candle so much, it smells fantastic! It’s decadent without being overly sweet.

  6. Graceley Knox

    Books and coffee are my favorite things in life, and this candle blends them together perfectly! Not too sweet, not too musty like old books, it’s got hints of parchment and chocolate and it’s decadent!

  7. Hannah Bennett

    This is such a fun scent. My husband smelled it and said it smelled like my library – books and coffee. And he is totally right!

    This was the first candle I ever purchased from Novelly Yours and it is still my favorite! The scent combos work perfectly together and it encapsulates the smell of home for me. Everyone needs Currently Reading!

    This scent is perfect for the mornings! I love lighting it first thing, rolling back over, and then waking up to its scent a few minutes later. Incredibly comforting

  11. Audrey Johnson

    This is a staple scent for me know. It really reminds me of the bookstore, fresh coffee and new books.

  12. Malene

    I actually get a craving for chocolate and coffee when I smell this gorgeous candle. Perfect blend of coffee, paper and cotton.

  13. Emily Raphael (verified owner)

    This candle is perfect for burning while reading any book. Its cozy, warm scent transports your couch at home into your favorite bookstore/coffee shop. The coffee scent is mild and definitely not overpowering. I love this candle!!!

  14. Jane Barrilleaux

    Oh my god, I love this candle! I chose it on a whim in a mix and match set, and I was not disappointed. I love coffee scented candles, but the paper and cotton keep it from being too overpowering, so it’s still great to burn in smaller rooms. I think that any coffee lovers should definitely pick this up!

  15. Melissa Kuehl (verified owner)

    I purchased a sample of this candle first before getting 5he larger size, worried that the blend of coffee and paper would come off as musty. But it’s a great combination that takes you to a happy place of coffee and a good book. It’s definitely on my short list for a scent obsession!

  16. Amy (verified owner)

    Holy crap, my favorite candle of all time ever. Its like sitting in a coffee shop surrounded by books. I’m in love and I want to bathe in it all the time. It had become a family favorite. 🙂

    This is the best coffee scented candle I’ve ever purchased! The coffee scent isn’t too overpowering, so you can also smell the other scents. This candle is absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to feature it in my bookstagram photos!
