New books, old books, leather-bound tomes; the Oxford Library Candle elicits scents that call to mind the greatest authors of the past and present. The Oxford Library Candle smells like the best version of books, not the mildewy damp smell of books that have been stored improperly, but the crisp, hearty scent of collections that have been preserved through hours of work and care.

If you’ve never been to the real Oxford Library, you’ll be able to experience a piece of this literary opus in the comfort of your own home. This unique book inspired candle will burn brightly for hours as you tunnel through your favorite novels and works. The Oxford Library Candle is 100% soy and made from eco-friendly materials. The calming scents of sandalwood, oak, and leather will inspire you to curl up in a comfy chair and spend an afternoon amongst your favorite authors.

Behind The Scents

The Oxford Library Candle is one of our most popular scents. It is also the candle that started it all, the first scent created in our Book Lovers’ Collection - the original book candle! With a flawlessly blended combination of sandalwood, oak, and leather fragrances, the Oxford Library Candle makes for the perfect reading companion.

Our dedicated team handcrafts each of our book themed candles. All candles are crafted in small batches so the coloring of your candle might be slightly different than the pictures above, but we take every care to recreate each of our candles precisely as possible.

The Oxford Library Candle has a strong scent that will fill any room with soothing and luxurious literary scents. The Oxford Library Candle is available in four sizes: 2 oz tins, 4 oz tins, 8 oz candles, and tart packages. The 2 oz tins are the perfect way to try out this unique scent before you order a larger size. The 4 oz tins make for a great gift; can you say stocking stuffer!? The 8 oz candle is our traditional size and is the most popular among our fans. The tarts are perfect for wax melters, giving you all of the aromas of this signature scent without any flames necessary. Great for offices and heavy traffic areas alike.

Helpful Tips

  • Trim wick to 1/4" before each use.
  • Burn no longer than 2-3 hours at a time.
  • After use, cover with lid to reduce soot.

Candle Safety

To be safe, we recommend that you burn your Oxford Library Candles within sight on a heat-resistant surface. Don't burn all the way down - discontinue use when 1/2" wax remains. Make sure that you keep your candle away from kids, pets, and all flammable objects. Because, you know, fire.

Quality Materials, Responsibly Made

Each of the size variations can burn for hours and will last a while, and are meant to be used! Part of what makes our candles so unique is our dedication to using renewable and eco-friendly ingredients to craft our bookish scents. Each of our candles is made entirely with renewable resources and don’t include any animal products. We chose to make soy candles because soy wax is renewable, biodegradable, and vegan.

But we didn’t stop with the wax; our candles contain a lead-free cotton wick and hand-selected dye chips and fragrance oils. And lastly, each receptacle and its corresponding lid, be it glass or aluminum, is 100% recyclable and can be used around the house after your candle has burned its last or can be safely deposited in your recycling bin.
