The Book Blogger Candle * GIFTED

There is nothing better than sitting down, lighting a candle, and either reading or blogging. I'm so scatter brained and distracted that I often try to do both at the same time. When I found out that Bookworm Candles and Crafts were doing a new range I jumped at the chance to try it, as I have loved past candles (like the Comic Book Heroes, I got the whole set for myself and a friend and they're amazing).

The Bookworm Candles and Crafts candle of the month for November is Book Blogging, and that means it's only £5 for an 8oz tin. What a bargain!

Book Blogging Candle, and planning blog posts

I love how Bookworm Candles and Crafts don't only list the scent notes when it comes to their candles; they list the feelings, the emotions, behind them. It lends a sense of mystery and expectation for when you finally smell the candle.

Book Blogging: Passion, Reviews, & Nutty Banana. 

The Book Blogging candle honestly smells good enough to eat, and even unlit my mouth was watering. It's a bit like a super rich banana bread, and perfect for burning during autumn. There is a sprinkling of gorgeous blue glitter on the top and once lit the wax itself shimmers and the scent intensifies. This candle has excellent throw, and the three wicks keep it burning evenly.

The tin has a beautiful ribbon around the lid with a cute heart decal, and on the side there is a quote which I'm sure any bookworm will agree sums up reading perfectly:
It's a great blessing if one can lose all sense of time, all worries, if only for a short time, in a book.

It's a great blessing if one can lose all sense of time, all worries, if only for a short time, in a book.

* I was gifted a candle for review purposes, all thoughts are my own.


  1. Is there anything better than the smell of banana bread? I might have to add this candle to my collection- and quite soon!

  2. The Comic Book Heroes candles are lush! Oooo! I love the sound of One More Chapter, & Fall Into Books. May have to grab a couple for my Fall/Winter candle collection =)

  3. These look brilliant - am looking forward to trying a fairytale candle. :)

  4. That looks lovely! Candles are so relaxing and create such a great atmosphere for relaxing and writing. Such a great review. Thank you for sharing!

  6. I love lighting up candles in autumn and mines are almost all gone. I'd need some restocking! I bet this one must smell amazing!

  7. This candle sounds delicious! I'll have to treat myself to one.

  8. For some reason I thought this candle would either smell of books, or of a blogger, which is even weirder. I think I've spent too much time on the creepy side of YouTube today...

  9. Wow Cora, this sound amazing. A banana candle! Sounds right up my street. As others have said it might end up making me hungry but I imagine it to be delicious. I love candles but haven't been burning any recently so have got a 'pumpkin harvest' candle on the go at the moment. Thank you for sharing, I didn't realise such a thing existed!


  10. Loved this post, that candle looks amazing and I really like that they have noted al of the feelings and emotions that you can get from this candle, this sounds like a really lovely brand as well will have to check them out, Great for Christmas presents x

  11. Oh dear, I sense the start of a new obsession. I'm addicted to scented candles, and these sound perfect!

  12. How have I never seen these candles before?? They are the cutest things ever!! Fluffy jumpers? YES please!

  13. Oooo banana bread! That sounds amazing! I'm scared my boyfriend would try to eat it xD He is a little obsessed with banana bread. I may well get him one for Christmas (then shamelessly burn it myself...) Thanks for sharing x

  14. Fall into Books would be my favorite. I'm not certain why the smell of Fall relaxes me or even why it's my favorite. Not certain that matters at all. I'd never heard of this line. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Sorry, forgot to leave the link:
