Candles for Readers

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

I was surfing the web for honey ideas for my next Queen Bee mystery when I stumbled across Paddywax, a company "pairing favorite quotes with exquisite fragrances", and I just had to share with all you bibliophiles out there. Not only did I find a candle and fragrance collection called Journey of the Bee, with scents like rose, clover, raw honey, and orange blossom, but I also found a library collection.

Light the Walt Whitman candle and bask in the aroma of grass, thyme, and red clover.

The fragrance from an Edgar Allan Poe candle wafts through the air, carrying cardamom, absinthe, and sandlewood.

Or decide between Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde.

If you want to read the quotes, check out the rest of the classic authors represented, and maybe even order, go to Paddywax. Or if you buy all your stuff through Amazon, here's the link to the Library Collection there.

I love candles. Don’t you?
