They are perfect for winter but won't over heat you in spring or fall.

These mini tea lights are one of the most innoventive book gift I have ever seen. They create the smells from some of your favorite books and wrap them all up in a small tea light candle. Each candle has a label that converts into a book mark too!
Inspired by a tale of unrequited love among reckless, wealthy socialites in the beach mansions of Long Island, The Green Light smells like 1920s perfume mixed with the sea. Signal Fire's comforting woodsy scent is laced with a slightly less civilized musky undertone, hinting at what might happen if British schoolboys marooned on an uninhabited island were to unleash their untamed inner beasts. The Scarlet Letter, sweetly dark and seductive, combines fragrances of wild red roses and black currant, inspired by the symbolism of the rosebush in the haunting American classic. Made in Illinois.
