  1. I picked the Voluspa Champagne Rose candle for my Valentine’s Day gift guide too! 🙂 I love that fragrance. Fun and flirty and the Corta Maison size it stunning with it’s glittery effect when burning.

    Belle Fleur Kyara Clove is definitely on my list of super sexy scents. So sultry! I love that one. Deep, dark, masculine. Oooh la la.

    I’ve tried the Brown Sugar lip scrub as well. Love it! Works great and tastes great.

    Nice list! A girl would be lucky to get any of these great Valentine’s Day gifts:)

    1. Voluspa is still one of my favorite candle brands. The packaging of Champagne Rose is gorgeous.

      Belle Fleur can do no wrong in my book. I would love it if they made Kyara Clove into a personal fragrance.

      Fresh is line that I usually love but forget about. Their Brown Sugar scrubs are heavenly…and their rose mask is also perfect for this time of year.

      Hope you guys have a great Valentine’s Day!

  2. Valentine’s day. Meh. If you need a special day to show someone you love them, well that one is best left alone. Now those candles look divine and the burning papers! I recently got back into incense and got some burning papers also. They are really wonderful. I just love them. Must have more.

    1. I agree. But, hey, if it is an excuse for chocolate and rose scents, I’ll roll with it.

      We don’t celebrate for the obvious reason that we think it’s dumb, but I wouldn’t mind adding a few of these candles to our space. Can there just be a scented candle holiday? Because I’d be all over that.
