This was my first Book Scents purchase, and I bought all three Brotherhood sets and all three Outlandish sets. The first thing I noticed was that the sample sizes were generous and just the colors alone were stunning. And the fragrances! Each and every one was really wonderful. The Outlandish scents were lovely and evocative. I haven't read any of the Brotherhood books so I can't compare the scents to the characters, all I can say is that as I sniffed them all each scent was more beautiful than the one before. And there's not a cliche in the bunch! I literally had a hard time putting the Rehvenge cup down. I kept wanting to sniff it...sparkling on top, but with the sense that something else entirely was going on beneath the surface. Is that Rehvenge's personality? Now I have to read the books to find out! (And get the candles as well!) Oh, and I appreciated the two bonus cups that were included in my shipment!
Unsure which scented candles you'd like to purchase from Book Scents? Would you like to get a chance to smell-before-you-buy? Well here's your chance!

This is a great way to get an idea of what each one is like, and they all smell amazing!!
Absolutely love all these scents. They are not overpowering in the least.
I recently bought these and another BDB samples. I was excited to be able to smell these and read about the brothers.
