LIBRARY CANDLE SPECIFICATIONS
Plenty of things. First and foremost, our scents are deeply evocative and the result of months spent carefully selecting and blending essential oils – to ensure they not only fill up your home but light up your senses.
Secondly, our ceramic candle holders are made by a small team of expert ceramicists in the heart of the Potteries, Stoke-on-Trent. Like us, they are passionate about their craft. Watch the video below to see how each ceramic candle is made with care and attention to detail.
Thirdly, our ceramic candle holders are hand-decorated with illustrations that visually represent the essence of their scent. These illustrations are mighty distinctive, draw the eye and start conversations. The candle holders are also designed to be decorative yet functional. Made to fit our luxury scented candles, they’re refillable and reusable (you can use them as a plant pot, vase, or storage element of your home décor).
Lastly, we use natural soy wax and lead-free wicks. Our scented soy candles burn longer, have a strong throw, and don’t release any toxins (unlike paraffin wax candles). They’re available as 3 wick candles and 1 wick candles.
Our fine china candle holders make excellent gifts. Browse our gift guides to find the perfect gift guide for that fine lady, dashing gentleman, green-fingered gardener, or warm-hearted animal lover in your life. We also carry gift cards.
We spent many months developing our candles, so that you'd have something that you'd treasure and keep forever.

We believe candles should be a joy to smell, and fill the room with elegant notes that are so evocative they transport you to a forgotten past, a cherished memory, on an adventure you are yet to take.
So we spent many months perfecting each one of our fragrances so that the final result would be sophisticated, memorable and contain many layers of aroma.
We wanted the fragrance to be as beautiful as the illustration adorning it (and vice versa).
Our candles are not mass produced by factories and machines, they are hand poured in small batches by an expert team of British candle pourers in the traditional and (in our opinion) best way.
They are made with the finest quality eco soy & vegan friendly wax which are infused with our unique blend of essential oils and premium fragrances.
By making everything in small quantities, we can ensure that all aspects are of the highest quality and to our exacting standards.
Our fine china candle holders are made especially for us and are hand decorated by a small team of expert ceramicists who carefully and meticulously finish each one of them - including 22 carat gold detail (hand painted around the rim).
The team is based a few miles away from us; in the heart of the Potteries:- Stoke on Trent, and is run by a Father and Daughter team, David and Jenny (a family business like us). We love working with them because they care about their craft as much as we do.
Watch how they're made below.
Once the candle has melted, you will be left with a beautiful fine China container that you can use over and over again.
We launched refills for our single wick ceramic candles - so you can simply buy one and keep using your candle - watch video below to see how easy it is.
Simply wash out any reminents of wax with hot, soapy water and you'll have a beautiful, hand made vessel that you could use to drink from, keep your pens tidy on your desk, use as a vase/plant pot, or store something useful like in the images below:
The vegan friendly soy wax we use is from a sustainable source, and is cleaner burning than other waxes (such as paraffin/mineral wax) and contains no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it's less likely to trigger allergies. We use lead free (cotton) wicks for the same reason.
Soy wax also melts slower than mineral/parafin wax (which is a crude-oil by product), which mean they typically last 30-50% longer than their mineral wax candle counterparts.
Soy wax releases scent easier than paraffin candles to give a richer fragrance throw and 'Pot Pourri' effect when not lit.
The first time you light your candle, we'd advise you keep it lit for around 2 hours (and away from draughts), or untill the wax has pooled to the edge. This will prevent any subsequent tunneling.
Ideally you'd trim the candle's wick to around 3mm before you light it.
We'd also recommend burning your candle for 1-2 hours at a time.
Don't let it burn all the way to the bottom, and protect the surface the candle sits on.
Finally, please don't forget that Chase and Wonder candles are particularly social, and like to be given as gifts too.
Bought this for my son who always has a book on the go! Beautiful ceramic container and fabulous scent. So impressed that I have gone on to buy a further three candles in a different design/scent.
I bought this as a present for my daughter as she loves candles and books! She thinks it’s fabulous, the pot is beautiful and she is looking forward to putting it to use afterwards. I’m not usually a fan of scented candles but even I have to admit this one is perfect! Not too strong and the smell is original and perfumed beautifully. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again.
I bought this candle for a friend who would spend every day of her life reading and when i saw this she popped into my head.Not only does the ceramic holder look stunning but the scent is heavenly , i could imagine being in an old liberary with leather bound books and truely relaxed in the joy in the light from the candle with its beautiful aroma.
I love my new "reading" candle, especially now we are heading into winter, it's the perfect afternoon treat to light it and read my book. David and his team were excellent - I made a mistake with the order and it was fixed speedily - I was really impressed.
