Jane Eyre - Scented Book Candle

  • $38.00

Scent: Better Happy Than Dignified

Size: 12.5 oz.


This literary candle has been inspired by the first published novel by the Bronte sisters, kick-starting one of the most famous literary legacies of the 19th century. 

Among women writers, Charlotte Bronte has a sure and certain place for all time (Britannica). 

In 1846, Anne, Emily, and Charlotte published a poetry book under the pseudonyms Acton, Ellis, and Currer Bell.

They knew they would be taken more seriously if the public believed that they were men.

Charlotte also published Jane Eyre under the name Currer Bell.

When it became a bestseller, the literary world became consumed with learning more about the mysterious Bell brothers. Having corresponded by letter, Brontë’s publishers, Smith, Elder, and Company, had no idea that Currer Bell was a woman. 

Remember, when Jane said: “I have not much pride under such circumstances: I would always rather be happy than dignified, and I ran after him - he stood at the foot of the stairs”.

The scent recalls the smell of rain, a crackling fireplace, with notes of wildflowers.

Fabulous- and just as advertised.

I ordered six candles in one order-- some for myself, some for my kids, and some as gifts. The candles were expensive but arrived very quickly and the scents were exactly as intriguing as promised. I especially liked the description that came with each candle about WHY the scent had been chosen, and the option to scan the barcode that came with each candle to read a digital copy of the book. Highly recommend.

Better happy than dignified

Not only is the candle as pictured but its scent is absolutely delightful. I'll absolutely be buying more from thus company soon. Also, it remind me more of the scene when they are outdoors having a picnic...a pleasant flowery smell.

Better Happy Than Dignified!

I purchased the Jane Eyre candle in the Better Happy Than Dignified scent, and it is SO GOOD. Smells like sitting by the fire after coming in from a long walk in the fresh, open air. Takes me to Thornfield Hall (in a good way-- not in an in-the-attic way ;)). 100% recommend. Excited to try out more of my favorite books next!
