VOLUSPA CANDLES

When you live in basement suite anything that helps to freshen up the place is a godsend. I’ve got reef diffusers and incense strewn around the house, but a good old fashioned scented candle is really what tickles me the most. Voluspa candles have done a great job with the tickling. I’d almost go so far as to say they’ve tickled me senseless, but I’ll try not to get so carried away. I mentioned one of these candles in my monthly favourites, but I’ve since gone back for more. Mmmm I may indeed have a problem.

We don’t have Diptyque candles here in Canada, and the price on those guys kind of scares me anyways, so when my friend introduced me to Voluspa candles I was quite pleased. They come in a variety of different jars, all of which are beautiful and they hit a reasonable price point for the quality. The smallest ones (3oz.) are $11 and the biggest ones (16oz) are $28. They smell amazing and very strongly. They’re made of clean burning coconut wax and they have quite a variety of scents. Some are truly fruity, some are musky and others are light and perfume-like.

The first one I got was the Goji and Tarocco scent. It is intensely edible smelling. I rarely even bother to light it up because it smells so strongly unlit. On the weekend I picked up the Pink Citron scent (perfumey grapefruit and rose) in a two wick size. Upgrade. Yeah, I bet you’re impressed. I also grabbed the smallest size of the Orangerie D’azahar scent, which is another perfumey one that, as you might guess, has a light orange smell.

I bought these delicious treats from Indigo/Chapters. For once Canadians have easy access to something. Canadian win! They sell them at Nordstrom too if you’re not Canadian. Plus the Voluspa website has a locator if you want to find somewhere near you. I also noticed that Anthropogie has some on their website. So I guess these candles musssst be on trend. Yusssss.

  3. I've toyed with the idea of getting a Voluspa candle when I did my Indigo order, I got their own Pure Peony Blush instead. I might try Voluspa next time! Do you have a Winners or Homesense nearby? I've seen some there once. ;)

    1. I always keep an eye out for them when I go into Winners and Homesense, but I haven't seen one yet. Good to know that they're lurking there somewhere.

  5. Yesss, Voluspa is the best. My favourite one was the Olive Leaf one but I noticed that they stopped selling them at Chapters when the Christmas stuff arrived to make room for it ;_;

  6. I have the Goji Tarocco Orange one too! Smells soooooo good. I'm so sad I've hit the bottom. You should also check out the French Cade Lavender one. Just as good.
