Here’s my impressions of the French inspired home fragrance line by Votivo.
This is a fruity pear fragrance with a hint of freshly sliced green apples. It’s nothing special, but that’s coming from someone who doesn’t see the allure in pear scented home fragrances. The scent is juicy and fruity. The more it burns, I pick up on a “green floral” aspect. As far as pear candles go, this one is really nice. It also has amazing throw.
This is a bitter ruby red grapefruit with with a hint of cooling, green rosemary. It’s a great “neutral” scent for the home since it smells fresh. I did notice that when this one burns, it does not smell as strong as the others that I’m reviewing. It’s “quieter”.
This is a sweet honey fragrance. I love it. I have never smelled a honey home fragrance that actually smells like honey. This one does. I wish they’d make a body product line using this scent. This sweet, slightly powdery honey fragrance has awesome throw. This is my absolute favorite from the tree that I tried.
All of the candles burned easily. Anjou Pear and Provençal Honey have great throw.
These candles are packaged in French inspired terracotta. Like all terracotta, the vessel is very fragile. I thought once the candle was gone, I could remove the wax and use these as flower pots. It was a bad idea. I broke the vessel. Oh, well. The vessel does look nice with certain rustic decor or those kitchens that have all of the cool stuff from Williams-Sonoma.
These retail for $16 each at Candle Luxury.
