Birch & Brook Library Scented Candle

Birch & Brook's range of luxury natural wax candles are gorgeous!  The range has been created by Jessica Jones, who studied graphic arts and has an MA in Printmaking.

She was brought up in Suffolk and her candles are inspired by the English countryside, as well as literary and historical pleasures.

The candles come boxed and are made with the finest ingredients from renewable and sustainable sources.  The 100% natural wax is made from GM free, organic and certified Vegan ingredients with a natural fibre wick. Packaging is simple and stylish. P&P is free in the UK.

I was sent the exquisite Library Scented Candle (235g - £36 - 40hrs burn time)* which has really captured the essence of being hidden away in a corner of a Library enjoying "the quiet decadence of a stolen afternoon, lost in the world of a long forgotten book".

The candle has top notes of guaiac wood and patchouli, with heart notes of Cinnamon, Clove buds and base notes of cedar and moss. It is really reminiscent of the scent of old books and wood. 

Other scents available are: 

Dressing Room (with berry, rose, violte, peony, musk, sandal and cedarwood)
Festival (with bergamot, lily, mandarin, patchouli, rose, orange blossom, jasmine, vanilla, sandalwood, amber, musk and leather)
Fireside (with leather, spice, guaiac wood, amber, patchouli, wood, cedarwood, moss and musk)
Secret Garden (with greens, mandarin flower, lily of the valley, cyclamen, peony hyacinth, vetivert, musk and heliotrope).

  1. OOH I love the sound of secret garden x

    1. Me too! One I'm picking up for summer I reckon x

  2. I can't decide which sounds the most divine! I am definitely eyeing Festival, Fireside and Dressing Room though. I love books so I can definitely relate to her inspiration of being "lost in the world of a log forgotten book".

  3. This sounds like my idea of heaven in a candle! Must check them out :) x
