Take the romantic atmosphere of the library home with Byredo Bibliothèque Candle.

There’s nothing quite like the library. Though each space has its own charms, a common love of literature unites them all in ambience. This fragranced candle from Byredo evokes the amorous aromas of old books with a careful composition of peach, plum, vanilla and patchouli to recreate the experience of turning delicate pages among rows of books. The scent is as evocative and comprehensive as the range of topics that fill every library. Notes of peony and violet enliven and invigorate, while the leather base note brings with it a touch of class and a nod to academia.

Byredo Bibliothèque Candle carries a scent that captures the atmosphere of a library so succinctly that the snap of a book, opened for the first time, can almost be heard in the sizzling of the flame.

Byredo Bibliothèque Candle is fragranced with atmospheric notes of peach, plum, vanilla and patchouli to infuse any space with the romantic smell of the library.

Bibliotheque Candle is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIVINE CANDLE This candle is heavenly! Its so inviting - smells divine, dark and woody with rich vanilla and tobacco, feels like I'm sitting in a library with a fire burning in the depths of winter when this burns! Burns evenly, no tunnelling and no black smoke when its extinguished. Far superior to Dyptique in my opinion. It has an amazing throw so it may be a bit intense for enclosed spaces but this really does scent your whole house! Very sophisticated, elegant candle. Eager to try other scents now! This is definite repurchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior candle Byredo scents whether perfume or candles are hard to put into words as they are so unique! This is my second candle purchase having fallen in love with Cotton Poplin and whilst this is very different scent wise, it did not disappoint. It does smell of old books but in the best way possible and I found it a very comforting, reassuring scent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favourite candle! I decided to splurge on this candle and it is so worth it! The smell is divine and hangs in the room even after the candle is blown out. It has a really warm but also fresh smell, kind of like a library with the windows open. It's also a slow burner with good throw and looks great on a table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it Initially I was a little underwhelmed with this candle and didn’t find it threw off much scent. However, that was just the first burn. Since then I have been nothing but impressed. The wax burns evenly to the edges and the smell is so complex and sophisticated. Yes they are more expensive than Diptyque but the wax burns much more slowly and the candles are bigger so in my mind they are much better value. The jars are also much thicker and more luxe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from doesn't actually smell like a library or books I was hoping this would be more evocative of an worn leather and old book private library. It's a lovely scent, but I was a little disappointed that the reviewBody didn't come close to the actual scent. The throw was OK. I may try other scents from this brand, and it may wear differently in EDP or lotion.
