Voluspa Candles Vermeil Collection

Last fall Voluspa candles wowed us with the launch of the new Vermeil Collection In case you’re wondering what the name means, vermeil (gilded silver) relates to the silver detail on the Corta and Petite Maison containers. The packaging is just stunning, in true Voluspa style, and we love all the fragrances. This new collection replaces the old Seasons Collection.

Some of the fragrances remained the same such as Makassar Ebony & Peach and French Bourbon Vanille (two of my favorites!). Voluspa Makassar Ebony & Peach is a dark, peach fragrance and is one of Voluspa’s best selling scents. It’s sexy and appeals to both men and women that like peach fragrances.

French Bourbon Vanille is also a top seller for Voluspa and is one of my absolute favorites. I use this fragrance on a regular basis at home and covet the room sprays I have left that have been discontinued (Traci – please bring them back!).

Voluspa resurrected the Clove Pomander fragrance that was discontinued a few years back. We’re so happy for that as Clove Pomander had a strong following and is a great scent for those that enjoy clove or spicy fragrances. The Voluspa Clove Pomander Corta Maison candle was a huge hit at the holidays with the beautiful red jar.

Frost Pinecone has a new name – it’s now Branche Vermeil. I’m not sure if the fragrance is exactly the same or if it has been tweaked, but I absolutely adore it! I enjoyed this fragrance more than any other through the winter. It’s a warm, slightly woodsy scent that can be enjoyed year-round. The packaging for Branche Vermeil is gorgeous! The lid on the Branche Vermeil Corta Maison candle sparkles and looks beautiful when not in use.

Champagne Rose is a new fragrance for Voluspa and a very welcome addition. If you love rose and/or champagne fragrances be sure to try this one. It’s just lovely. If you’re not a huge fan of rose fragrances, don’t fear this one. It’s not a heavy or overwhelming rose but rather light and bubbly from the champagne. It’s very youthful so get Grandma out of your head. I love the color on this one as well.

Voluspa Chestnut & Vetiver is another new fragrance. This one is warm and cozy and a delicious gourmand blend. I love the color of the Petite Maison and Corta Maison when burning – it glows with an inviting amber hue.

The Voluspa diffusers in this collection are taller and more slender than in the past. They offer better fragrance throw with a new diffuser oil blend and longer reeds. The glass is tinted in the same color palette by fragrance but only the Branche Vermeil fragrance has the vermeil detail. I love the little bow that was added – such a nice touch of elegance.

I adore the Petite Maison and Corta Maison styles in this collection as they feature the vermeil detail (they don’t show nearly as beautiful in photos as they do in person). As the candle burns, the light shines through the vermeil offering a sparkly, festive look. I particularly love the Voluspa Corta Maison candle style as it comes with a lid that can be used as a base when the candle is burning and lid when not in use to keep the fragrance in and dust out. The lids has an intricate star design embossed on the top and old-world apothecary jar detail on the side. Though the Corta Maison candle does not come in a box, this is still my favorite style to gift for this collection.

The Vermeil Collection continued the tradition of the Voluspa 3-wick tin candle but added the same intricate embossed star detail on the lid.

Now it’s your turn! Tell us what you think about this new Voluspa collection:

What’s New in Luxury Candles 2013 Spring/Summer Edition

Approximately twice a year luxury candle brands such as Nest Fragrances, Votivo, Thymes, Tocca, Trapp and Voluspa launch new fragrances and products. Here’s our video review on what’s new in luxury candles for the 2013 spring/summer seasons.

Votivo launched 2 new fragrances for their Aromatics Collection: Jasmine Neroli and Azure Garden. Votivo Jasmine Neroli is a floral blend of mandarin, guava, angelica, jasmine, tuberose, white musk, vanilla and soft woods. This is a great take on jasmine and I highly recommend giving it a try. Votivo Azure Garden is a blend of grape hyacinth, blueberry, prairie grass, red leaf rose, red hunter, tulip, teakwood and vetiver. This fruity floral fragrance is perfect for spring/summer.

Jonathan Adler added a fun fragrance to his Pop Collection: Bubblegum. This smells exactly like hard bazooka bubble gum that has the powdering white coating. If you’re looking for something sugary this will hit the spot.

Thymes launched three new fragrance for their Wildwood Collection: Woodland Violet & Mint, Fiddlehead Fern & Crabapple and Linden Blossom & Nectar. These spring/summer fragrances are offered in a light green vessel and light brown box to corralate with the brighter seasons. The Thymes fall/winter Wildwood fragrances are offered in a brown vessel and darker brown box. They will return in August.

Trapp created 4 new fragrances: Mandarin Goji, Teak & Oud, Fig & Mimosa and Fine Linen. These new scents are available in the 11oz Trapp candle, room spray and votive candle. Mandarin Goji is a pungent and sweet fruity fragrance. Teak & Oud is a unisex scent that comes across like soft woods. Fig & Mimosa is a fruity floral, not overly fig or sweet. Fine Linen is a fresh scent reminiscent of Votivo Clean Crisp White or K. Hall Designs Washed Cotton.

Tocca added to their fine fragrance collection with the new Liliana perfume. Tocca Liliana is an intoxicating bouquet of muguet, gardenia and peony. There is also a strong peach note making this perfume a youthful fruity/floral.

K. Hall Designs added a diffuser to their Barr-Co collection. This original scent is a blend of creamy milk, oatmeal, vanilla, and vetiver. There is also a new apothecary jar candle for this fragrance that will be available soon.

Nest Fragrances is going to launch a new candle just in time for Mother’s Day. White Narcisse offers the modern clean floral fragrance that Nest does so well. This new fragrance is offered in a white, sculpted vessel in packaging made perfect for gift giving.

Voluspa repackaged their Maison diffusers in a larger, taller, clear vessel with slim-line box. The reed color corresponds to the particular Voluspa Maison collection: Rouge (red), Noir (black) and Blanc (natural reeds).

Voluspa also created the new L’Florem Collection featuring 5 floral-based fragrances. This new collection offers 6 products: 3 candles sizes, room spray, roll-on perfume and luxurious hand cream. (You must try the hand cream!) My favorite new fragrance in this collection is Temple Grove. It has the peach notes Voluspa does so well with like in their Makassar Ebony & Peach and Creme de Peche fragrances. This new collection will be in very soon! Look for it here.

DIY: Cute Spa Gift Basket | ShowMeCute

DIY: This video walks the viewer through the process step by step of how to make a gift basket and “Cute Spa Gift Basket” is full of tips and tricks that will allow you to WOW the recipient of any gift. I did a basket like this for the “Better KC” morning show and tried to make this video so even the most timid of gift wrappers could tackle this project. I will be adding the link to the segment on “Better KC” KCTV5 where I displayed these gift baskets and put together the pink lemonade body scrub. Go to my website for more detailed pictures, recipes, and information. Let me know how your scrub turned out and how you liked it. You could also use a plastic container if you are worried about breaking the glass jar in the shower. I like to take baths so generally I like the look of glass jars better and am not worried about dropping them.
