The rich, heady air of an ancient library. Rich woods, polishes, leathers and dark ink blend together as you get lost in an armchair and novel.
Perfect for creating a luxurious moment of thoughtful calm in any room of the house.
“I was fortunate to study at Trinity College in Cambridge. The dining hall was built by Henry VIII, and a large portrait of him has hung at the end of the room for 450 years. Entering the famous college library—where some books were centuries old too—was a humbling experience. I'll never forget the smell of those books, nor the absolute stillness in the air.”

“The personalized touches really warm my heart.”
I'm two shipments into my new Keap candle subscription, and I just wanted to send a note saying how much I've enjoyed the experience so far. The personalized touches really warm my heart, and the candles of course are wonderful :-) Thanks for doing what you do!
