About Book Scents Candles

The mission of Book Scents is to provide you with a connection to the books you love. Every candle has a story! Book Scents candles are for the book lovers out there who want to experience their favorite characters and books in a new and unique way.

Book Scents was started in October 2013 in the basement of my home in Central Pennsylvania. Although I still work out of my basement, Book Scents has expanded its product line and offerings to include an author focused program, The Writer’s Block. Book Scents is the extension of my love of books and I take great care to create candles that are high quality – meaning they smell really good!


Book Scents is run by me, Nalana Lillie. I am a former military wife, mom of two boys and entrepreneur. I love reading and crocheting.

When I’m not working my business, you can find me enjoying my guilty pleasures – TV shows such as Dr. Who, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Downton Abbey, Outlander, The Walking Dead and many more – wrapped up in a warm blanket, with my coziest PJ’s, tasty snacks and my tea (or coffee if it’s any time before noon!) in our home in Central Pennsylvania.
