A Few Voluspa Candle Mini Reviews

It’s another laid-back Sunday at the EauMG house. I should be packing for my trip back to Nashville this week but I don’t want to pack. It’s overwhelming thinking about “condensing” my skincare for a trip. Anyway, I thought I’d take a break and post some really quick impressions of a few Voluspa candle scents.

Voluspa J.P.B candle

Japanese Plum Bloom AKA J.P.B. Notes listed include Japanese plum blossoms, orchard leaves, plum nectar and currants.

This is a juicy plum with a realistic redcurrant. It’s a must for those… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Voluspa Makara & Moso Bamboo Candles – Mini Reviews

Voluspa is a line of home fragrance that I find to be very solid. And their prices are great. Here are my mini reviews of Mokara and Moso Bamboo:

Voluspa Mokara

Mokara – Notes listed include Mokara orchid, white lily, and spring moss.

Cool lily fragrance with some headiness. Gorgeous. It reminds me of having fresh lilies in the home. However, this candle is even better than having fresh lilies in the home. It isn’t suffocating and it doesn’t die or get pollen all over the place… Continue reading | 4 Comments

These eight fragrances are available in candles (in many sizes), room & body sprays (Aqua de Senteur), Room Diffuser, and moisturizing bar soaps. Like most Voluspa products, the packaging is gorgeous. The colors and designs are rich, luxe, and elegant. Think turn of the century Art Nouveau-ish daguerreotypes with a modern edge.  There’s even a  moth design on one of the candles, my favorite imagery ever. The eight scents in this… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Incense Without Smoke: Voluspa Baltic Amber Candle Review

Voluspa Baltic Amber

OK, if you’ve read my previous Voluspa candle reviews then you know that I like the candles. They burn evenly and are fragrant throughout. I really have nothing more to say about that end of it, but I do have something to say about the fragrance. I like amber. In high school I would smear amber resin on my pulse points. I like the creamy, butteriness of it. Even though I am a fragrance addict and a fragrance flirt, I guess I would have to say that… Continue reading | 5 Comments
