Antique books have a distinct smell, it's true! The inspiration for this candle begins with the fragrant chemicals generated by the breakdown of material in aged paper. Enriched with subtle atmospheric notes of must and leather, this candle is a creative interpretation of the wonderful, comforting scent of aged books.

FRAGRANCE: Dominant notes of Paper, Vanilla & Leather

Frequently asked questions about WertherAndGray

Werther & Gray is committed to using a high quality soy blend wax for all candle products in the shop. Parasoy is non-toxic, biodegradable, vegan and blends the best properties of soy and paraffin while limiting the less desirable qualities of both. Parasoy offers the superior aesthetics and scent throw of paraffin as well as a slower burn which is characteristic of soy.

To anyone who strongly prefers soy over paraffin, I highly recommend researching the issue (if you haven't already) to make an informed choice. In the rush to embrace soy, consumers gloss over or accept many myths about both soy and paraffin. The FAQs page of the National Candle Association website is a good place to start.
CANDLE BURNING GUIDE: Never leave a burning candle unattended. Do not burn near children and pets. Burn only on a level, fire resistant surface away from flammable materials. Do not handle or attempt to move the candle while wax is hot or melted. Never burn for more than 4 hours at a time. Keep wick trimmed to 1/4" to minimize sooting and uneven burning. Do not burn when wax level has reached 1/2" or less from bottom of container. Keep wick trimmings and foreign materials out of wax pool. To prevent tunneling, burn candle the first time so that wax pool reaches edge of container.
Werther & Gray is currently taking wholesale orders. Lead time will vary per inquiry. For more information, please visit Etsy Wholesale or send me a message.
For orders with a quantity of 3 or 4 candles to be shipped to the west coast: you may save money by splitting your order into two separate orders. Due to the limitations of Etsy's shipping calculator, two flat rate packages will sometimes be more economical than one weight-based package. All orders of one or two candles ship flat rate.
