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.
