One of my favorite places to study at college was the library; now that I'm studying at home, this candle is truly a blessing, as it reminds me of the still, clean, book-laden smells of that library and helps bring focus back to the task at hand. The connection to St. Thomas is a beautiful reminder of his patronage and the melding of study with love of Christ. And as always with CORDA candles, a lovely bright flame and long burn time!

This candle is a peaceful masculine aroma. Like all the candles, it burns evenly and last a long time. I will purchase again for Autumn.

I light this one when working on my dissertation or anything I’m trying to publish. Reminds me of the great tradition of thinkers I’m trying to emulate, and helps me breathe through the dense thicket of work ahead of me.
I love to light this candle when I am practicing my writing! It is subtle and calming. I really enjoy it.

Wonderful candles...with "male" scents as well as pretty ones for the girlfriends. Order without hesitation-the inventory is of the highest caliber . Also good to support a small business!
I love this candle. I purchased it for an end of the school year push as the kids were studying for finals, and it smells like an Italian library! It is subtle yet evokes a sense of strength, just as I imagine St. Thomas of Aquinas to be.
Ooo, an Italian library is an awesome description, and I'm glad you sense St. Thomas's strength through this candle - he is amazing! Hope finals went well! - Anna
I love having this candle burning when I'm homeschooling my kids. It puts us in a bookish mood!
The scent of this candle is unlike any I’ve smelled before. I am a great lover of St. Thomas and I light this candle when I read and study. I read another review that says the smell is masculine. Maybe. But I wouldn’t let that deter any woman from trying this scent. It’s great!
