Hi! I thought I’d answer a few of the Frequently Asked Questions that are often brought to me at Book Scents. It’s easier to provide this information here than in some obscure place on Etsy. 🙂
Q. Do you pour your own candles?
A. Yes, I do! I hand pour each candle to order.
Q. How do you develop the fragrances?
A. I gain inspiration from the books that I read – whether my favorites or books recommended by customers – and come up with ideas that I think honor the story/character. I work with fragrance oils to find the right blend for the candle. If you see the term “Book Scents exclusive scent” that means I specifically blended two or more fragrance oils to create an exclusive scent you won’t find anywhere else.
Q. How long does it take to get my candles?
A. Depending on the amount of orders I receive over period of time, it can take from 3 – 7 days to receive your candles. I try to complete orders as quickly as possible because I understand that everyone likes to have their items as soon as possible. However, with the nature of hand poured items, there is some time needed to create your candle to include dry time. I want to be sure you get the best product possible, so it may take an extra day or two ensure that end result.
Q. Can I request my own candle fragrance?
A. Yes, I do work with customers to create a specific fragrance they would like for their favorite book/character. I do charge a development fee for doing so that covers purchasing fragrances, samples to test, shipping samples, etc. If you are interested in commissioning a candle, you can visit my April Newsletter to see how the process works. You can contact me at my Etsy Store or my Facebook Page for more information.
Q. I am an author and am interested in working with you – how do I get started?
A. Book Scents now offers The Writer’s Block™ by Book Scents program. The TWB program is a unique offering that brings the reader closer to your books on a SENSORY level that no pen or bookmark can do!
