Let us know!

Checkmate is the candle you burn deep into the night in a room amongst your most scholarly friends, as you puff your cigar and nurse your drink. Checkmate is how we imagine students at Oxford spending their winter break, deep in intellectual debates with heated chess matches, and a good bit of cheeky candor. Scented with warm carpets, hand-carved chess pieces, smoky oud, and burnt maple. Each candle is hand poured and labeled in Coastal New Hampshire.

Checkmate features luxurious coconut apricot wax. Coconut apricot wax is a FDA approved creamy, buttery blend of coconut oil, apricot wax, and a tiny bit of food grade paraffin.

Checkmate is a wood wick candle. Wood wicks should be kept trimmed to 1/4 inch to maintain a steady flame that is free of sparks.
