This book was a great book if you have no idea where to begain when it comes to finding candles and fragrances you might like. But it also felt like a book that was not needed.

I flew through this book! I love scents, and Sir Candle Man clearly shares my passion. He gives a great overview of different scents, the moods they can evoke, and how he incorporates candles and scent into his life. I especially appreciate that he talks about how an inexpensive candle can spark as much joy as a very expensive candle!

He makes scent and candles of all prices ranges relatable and attractive.

Thank you Netgalley and Chronicle Books for the ARC!

Let It Burn is a fascinating introduction to the art and lifestyle of candles, written by Sir Candle Man It talks about the author's introduction into the world of candles, how to shop for candles, building a starter candle collection, Candle Care 101, gifting candles, creating certain candle vibes in your space, candles for wellness and self-care, and styling your candles.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable introduction to the world of candles for me. There is so much information in this book if you are like me. I love candles, I have WAY too many of them. 😂😂 I never learned very much about them or how to properly care for them before. I am so glad I picked this up!

Also, the pictures in this book are simple, but they are absolutely exquisite. Definitely worth picking up a copy of this book!

Thanks Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to review this eARC in exchange for my honest review on the book!
