( / )

The Library of Alexandria was one of the most famous libraries of the ancient world. It was said to contain over 500,000 scrolls, considered to be a center of learning and culture. The Library was destroyed in a fire in 48 B.C., but its legacy has lived on. Today, the Library is commemorated in many ways, including through this candle. Top notes of plum and peach evoke the wealth of knowledge that was contained within the Library's walls, while heart notes of violet and peony represent the beauty and elegance of the Library itself.

Product Care

  • When lighting your candle for the first time, burn the candle for at least 1 to 1.5 hours, so the candle melts equally across the entire surface to the side of the vessels. Lighting for less time can cause the candle to "tunnel," leading to wax build-up around the jar. Always burn within sight. Do not leave burning candles unattended or lit while sleeping.
  • Use the Lazy Royal candle lid provided to extinguish the candle; this prevents smoking and ensures the candle is completely out with no glow present at the wick.
  • Do not burn your candle for longer than 3 hrs at a time. This helps to preserve the fragrance.
  • Do not burn your candle all the way down. Always leave at least ½ inch of non-molten wax at the bottom.
  • Do not touch or move the candle when burning. Avoid moving candles when the wax has melted until it has thoroughly cooled.
  • Extinguish the candle if it smokes, flickers or if the flame is too high. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.
