Are book-inspired candles a mini-trend? Last winter, we spotted Paddywax library-scented candles at Dupont's Tabletop, and over in Arlington, the adorable gift shop Covet carries these delightfully nerdy Frostbeard Studio Book Lovers Soy Candles. Made by hand in Minneapolis and priced at $16 each, these candles are for anyone who has ever wondered what Dumbledore's office smells like. Answer: cedarwood, vanilla, and fireplace. And for your friend who can't stop talking about Game of Thrones, go with the Winterfell candle, featuring eau de pine and firewood.
