Elizabeth & Leicester

Elizabeth & Leicester

Experience the private world of the last Tudor queen. A collaboration with Dr. Joanne Paul, the KLEIO Elizabeth & Leicester luxury candle recreates the sensory history of the private garden created just for Queen Elizabeth I by her rumored love Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. Travel back to Kenilworth Castle in 1575 and visit this grand estate, teeming with sweet aromas and fragrances that will delight “all senses (if all can take) at once.”

The candle's vessel label features the authentic signature of Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, accented in luminous gold.

SENSORY HISTORY AROMAS: Night Violet, Rose, Ripened Strawberries, Freshly picked Cherries, Hyssop, and Garden Earth

The Elizabeth & Leicester candle was created as a multisensory complement to Dr. Paul’s best-selling book The House of Dudley.

Thank you for choosing a KLEIO experience as a gift. When you proceed to our store checkout, you will see a text box field in your cart to share your special gift message.

KLEIO relies on the incredible scholarship of historians—from ancient to present day—who have produced detailed texts, books, and first-hand accounts on sensory history.

When researching potential KLEIO concepts, we pore over scores of sources—and collaborate with experts—to ultimately create our interpretation of a select sensory moment in time. There is a substantial amount of research and development associated with each candle.

Sourced from perfumeries all over the world, our fragrance oils, many infused with natural essential oils, are free of carcinogens, mutagens, phthalates, dyes, reproductive toxins, and meet California Prop 65 standards. Each candle features a proprietary coconut apricot wax blend and high-quality cotton wicks designed to provide an optimal burn. We use a high fragrance-to-wax ratio, resulting in a powerful aromatic experience.

As an artisanal company, our candles are hand finished, featuring hand-applied gold and silver leaf and a robust, heavy-base glass vessel. Each vessel is truly one of a kind—no two are alike.

KLEIO is committed to being an eco-conscious company. While we are past-obsessed, we do so with thoughtful consideration of the future. We believe that beauty and elegance should be in harmony with environmental sustainability. Learn more about how we achieve this.
