Voluspa Creme Candle Collection


Out of all the lovely presents Santa brought me this year, my favorite was the Voluspa Creme Candle gift set. Packaged in a gorgeous maroon and cream patterned box, this delightful collection of glass encased votive candles instantly brought a smile to my face.

I have always seen Voluspa candles in high end bath shops and spas, but for some reason had never purchased them for myself. I'm not sure what I was thinking (or smelling, rather) but these clean burning candles provide a powerful and sensuous fragrance while they burn and long after they flame has gone out.


I am usually highly picky with home scent, particularly with candles, so that is also why I was so surprised that each and every one of the ten scents appealed to me.

The collection contains the best of Voluspa's Creme Collection, including:

Sawara Cypress
- currently burning right now- it has an exotic, peppery scent... love it!
Pomegranate & Patchouli- sweet incense... lovely...
Saija Persimmon- heavenly for winter
Grapefruit Mint Cuttings- a great scent for the kitchen...
Honey Orange Blossom- clean and fresh smelling with a touch of sweet...
Casimiroa- an exotic, tropical fruit scent...
Clove Pomander- another wonderful winter delight
Vanilla Jasmine Tabac- the tabac adds a slight masculine edge to the otherwise feminine scent.
Hawaiian Maile Vine- a mysterious, tropical scent
Paheri Mango Leaf- sweet like a mango but with a certain je ne sais quoi...

This sampler set would make a lovely hostess present...

It's also a great way to treat yourself if you want to become familiar with the line...

Whichever way you look at it, Voluspa Creme Candle gift sets are a decadent treat!

I absolutely adore Voluspa candles, I even got one for Christmas, Santiago Huckleberry from the Japonica line. And once again I will just mention my all time favorite of theirs (also from the Japonica line): Baltic Amber.

The candles sound divine. What beautiful blends. I think my favourite gift from Santa was Carla Coulson's book, Paris Tango. So much beaty and inspiration for me to gaze at.
On the lower end of the scale for scented candles, I used to love Crabtree and Evelyn's 'Summer Hill' It was so perfect for our climate. However, once I got pregnant, it made me feel ill all the time. I've not been able to return to it since. Perhaps I should look for some Voluspa candles?

Forgot to mention another book Santa bought me which you might enjoy is Things I wish my Mother had taught me
Lessons in Grace and Elegance by Lucia Van Der Post.
Quite a mouthful of a name but Lucia works for the Times as a regular for style and beauty advice. Some great tips in her book!

The Daily Connoisseur said...

Primrose- I'm so happy you received Carla's book for Christmas! Isn't it great?

And that is so funny you mention Lucia Van Der Post's book because last year at my mother in law's house in England, I saw Lucia's book and started reading it- I enjoyed what I read so much, I ordered it from Amazon when I got back to California... it's such a great book... Hmmm you've actually inspired me to leaf through it again...

I've just received Paris Tango as a 45th birthday present from my beautiful sister who last year got me My French Life where Carla Coulson did the photography. This all leads to a Christmas and New Year 2009 in Paris - away from the Australian heat. Ahhh.... bliss.

The Daily Connoisseur said...

Nickyo... Happy Birthday! And what a wonderful present indeed... I'm glad you enjoyed the book!
