Bookworm Rustic Vintage Candle
(Aprox burn time: 60+ hrs)
Notes: Teakwood, Cedar, Leather, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Amyris, Dark Musk
Our wood wick, triple scented, 100% soy wax candles are hand poured in Spokane, WA. We use real ingredients in our candles - fragrance oils infused with essential oils, 100% American-grown soy wax, and untreated cedar wood wicks.
What does "hand-poured" mean?
What do we mean when we say "hand-poured"? It means that we make candles the old-fashioned way. We take the time and care with our own two hands. Everything at Anchored Northwest is done by hand - from the wicking of your cedar wick to the pouring of your 100% soy wax candle.
Why Wood Wicks?
Wood wicks burn slower and longer than cotton wick soy candles, by up to 25%, giving you more bang for your buck. Wood wicks burn hotter for more smell power, leading to a more fragrant candle. Wood wicks have nearly zero carbon buildup and therefore no soot. Wood wicks require less trimming than a cotton wick and our wood wicks are harvested in sustatinable forests right here in the USA. And of course...the CRACKLE! In other words, wood wicks are cooler than cotton wicks.

I love candles and do not mind spending money on them. I like to try different companies because you never know when you will find one you are in love with, However, I have to say I have never been more disappointed. I ordered a variety of scents and each one disappoints. They burn fast, there is little scent throw and it takes over a day to smell the scent once the throw is noticeable. I initially had them in a medium bedroom but the first candle was wasted because I never could smell anything, I decided that I would burn the rest in the small hall bathroom, I am now the monster of the house because I am yelling to keep the bathroom door closed or else you will not smell anything. Such a waste of money. I feel people are giving good reviews because of the partnership they company did with a YouTuber and not on the quality of the candles.
This candle kinda let me down based on the notes listed. It smells like soap, to me and everyone I've had smell it. I'm a big teakwood fan and that just isn't what I'm getting from this. I expected something more musky, manly, like a cologne. These are the types of scents I'm drawn to...this just wasn't that. It does smell pretty fresh, if that's what you're going for.
The first thing I thought of when I had a whiff of the scent is that it smells like the Lush store! The Teakwood, Cedar, and Sandalwood notes are definitely dominant - it just smells expensive and woodsy. I definitely think this would make such a great gift for book lovers. I’m so excited to have this lit and read for hours.
