About Novelly Yours

est 2015 · candles · book trackers · stickers · bookmarks · more


Novelly Yours was started by owner and candle-maker Brittany Smith in 2015. A passion for books and a hobby with candle-making led to a bookish business creating candles inspired by her favorite novels. Throughout the years, the book collections have evolved and transformed into a line of literary candles for all bookworms and even extending to other candle themes as well as other gifts and goods with bookish designs.

The shop is now run by Brittany and her husband Shane, who joined the team full-time in 2021. The company expanded from just candles into adding other items like stickers, bookmarks, reading journals, tote bags, mugs, and other fun goodies to fit with the current themes.

how we make it

All Novelly Yours candles are made with 100% all-natural soy wax, fragrance oils, candle-tested jars, and zinc-free cotton wicks. All fragrances oils are a combination of essential oils and specially designed fragrance oils tested specifically for candle-making, and all fragrance oils are phthalate-free. 

Each candle scent is a unique blend of fragrance oils that Brittany combines in-house. The candles are hand-poured by Brittany in the Novelly Yours shop located in Oswego, Illinois. Each candle is carefully created from start to finish with the Novelly Yours team handling everything from creation to shipping. A personal touch goes into every order, whether that’s here at the website, for our retailers who purchase wholesale, or even to bulk orders that go into subscription boxes!

We also offer other items like book journals, stickers, wooden bookmarks, and more that are all designed by Brittany and printed by our trusted printing partners.
