Wordsmith Candles

The Picture of Dorian Gray Literary Candle

$13

A handsome scent of wood smoke, amber and florals.

The story: Oscar Wilde's tale about the young and beautiful Dorian Gray is strange and compelling. Notes of cedarwood, patchouli and incense mingle with the faint perfume of jasmine and violet, seductive and unmistakably masculine. A sophisticated scent that can be enjoyed by both men and women.

The product: A literary inspired candle with a beautiful scent throw. Create the perfect reading atmosphere with the spark of a match! Handmade in Co. Cavan, Ireland with a vegan blend of rapeseed and coconut wax and pthalate-free fragrance oils.

120ml  |  20 hours burn time

Directions: 

Trim your wick to 5mm before lighting. When lighting your candle for the first time, leave it lit for 3-4 hours to ensure a full, even melt pool and prevent tunneling. Store candles out of sunlight when not in use to avoid discolouration (does not affect burn quality).

Safety:

Keep out of reach from children and pets. Never leave a candle burning for more than 4 hours, and never leave it unattended. Candles should only be burned on a stable, heat-proof surface, away from anything that can catch fire (curtains, books, clothing etc).

Place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax. When there is 5mm of wax left in the bottom of the container, extinguish the candle and do not relight. The bottom of the container will become too hot if you do not follow this step.

The fragrances may contain allergens. All known allergens are listed on the underside of the candle packaging. The allergen warnings may apply to you if you have asthma or other allergies.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for a friend who loves the book.
Great design and beautiful scent. It reminded me of being in bluebell woods near my home!
