North Ave Candle: Catcher in the Rye | Bourbon + Tobacco Flower

North Ave specialises in clever candles for literature lovers! The Banned Books Collection is a line of candles with scents inspired by books that have historically faced various bans and challenges. Candle comes in beautiful glass jar with a gift box labeled with details of when/why/where each book was banned and/or challenged.

The warming, cozy scent of bourbon– caramel undertones and hints of vanilla, mixed with the sweet woodsy scent of tobacco flower and mahogany. It’s complex, a little moody, almost sophisticated but still a little playful, sweet with a touch of old-school masculinity. A book candle to remind you that maybe, just maybe, growing up isn’t the worst thing in the world — and we can all be as happy as Holden at the carousel.

North Avenue Candles is a woman-owned + operated team– and each candle is handcrafted by life-long candle lovers in their Pittsburgh studio. They create each candle using old fashioned methods and premium ingredients, taking care that everything produced has an eco-friendly focus. Only the finest fragrance oils and natural waxes and wicks are used. Then they are hand-poured into small batches after meticulous testing to ensure that each candle is fragrant and clean burning.
