Votivo candles 2012


In late January, I attended the New York International Gift Fair. One of the things that really stood out to me while I was there were the two new home fragrance launches from Votivo.

NEST Moss & Mint Candle and Diffuser Review

NEST Moss and Mint review

NEST Moss and Mint reminds me of Persian food and that’s one of the many reasons that I love it. It’s like mint tea, greens and floral waters. It’s a beautiful scent for the home or body. And it’s one of my favorites for the summer.

Infusion Organique Buddha’s Fig Scent Diffuser Review

Anthousa Orchard Trio Home Ambiance Fragrance Review

Anthousa Orchard Home Ambiance Gift Set

Anthousa Orchard Home Ambiance Fragrance Trio contains 3 home fragrance diffusers in fresh, fruity fragrances. This gift set includes the following home scents:

Nectarine & Red Currant: Nectarine & Red Currant is a fruity, tart home fragrance. It smells like fuzzy, juicy peaches and tangy red currants. There’s a floralness to this fragrance, “generic” floral because of the mix of added woods. This is a bit of a “hissy”, energetic fragrance. This home fragrance reminds me of something from Victoria’s
