Voluspa Vermeil Candles Collection

By all accounts the Vermeil collection from Voluspa Candles will follow in the footsteps of the Maison collection as being a runaway success!  The combination of design and fragrance is again stunning.

The Vermeil collection uses a vintage mercury glass look in many shapes for the candle vessels.  The result looks very old Parisian in nature.

An old favorite that Voluspa has returned to the collection is Makassar Ebony Peach, a very rich sultry fragarance.  My Vermille candle of choice has been Branch during the holiday season, and including Valentine’s Day.  The Voluspa Branche Vermeil reminds me of Frost Pinecone from Voluspa’s discontinued Season’s Collection which has visions of a cold crisp day with hints of spruce and balsam.  Very winter refreshing!

Another fragrance in the collection is Champagne Rose which comes in a beautiful pink vermeil silver jar.  The scent is a combination of cassis berries poured over Brut Rose Champagne, with edible white rose petals.  Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, this will be an absolute favorite Voluspa-Champagne-Rose-candlescent.

The fragrance rich and warm fire roasted chestnuts that are peeled, crushed and blended with earthy Vetiver , Oakmoss and Golden Amber describes the Voluspa Chestnut and Vertiver.  It comes in a golden distressed and speckled vintage silver vermeille glass.  Adding instant warmth to any room.

Voluspa-Branche-vermeil-candleWhen the Seasons collection was retired, we lost the very popular Voluspa French Bourbon Vanille, fortunately it is also back in the Vermeille collection with its rich library and warm leather notes.

Voluspa candles have been given accolades from the famous and the media, but they are very affordable for everyday enjoyment.  Scent your world with luxury!

10 ways to create an ambiance with candles

Candles create a sense of warmth and create an elegant statement wherever they you use them. Here are 10 ways you can use candles to enhance your ambiance:

  1. Use candles in groupings. This creates more of an impact as opposed to setting a single candle on a table. However, do not place too many clustered very close together, as that will create an up-draft, which will cause the candles to smoke.
  2. Use scented candles to create a scent that will enhance the mood you are trying to achieve. Scents have been proven to evoke certain feelings that these days many stores, boutiques and even grocery stores, car dealerships and investment houses pump fragrances into their HVAC systems to enhance the shopping experience. Use this same technique in your home or office.
  3. Mix different fragrances to create a scent that is all your own. For a fresh spring scent Try mixing a berry scent like the Votivo Red Currant Candle with a citrus candle such as the Voluspa Saijo Persimmon
  4. For more a more exotic mood, mix the Votivo Teak candle with a musky scent such as the Trapp Amber and Bergamot candle
  5. For dinner parties keep the scents away from the dinner table. You do not want anything to interfere with the food you slaved over all day. Use unscented candle tapers, pillar candles or votives to create a warm glowing
    atmosphere for dining.Voluspa-Votivo-Archipelago-
  6. In the kitchen, you can use some scented candles that will complement your food. Try the Voluspa Candles created in cooperation with renowned chef James Boyce with scents like Sommelier, Vintage, Herb Garden, and Chef’s Special.
  7. Use color to set the tone and complement your accessories. Many designers will use neutrals on larger furniture pieces, and then use accessories to create color splashes. Use candles to create a pink and red theme for Valentine’s Day, a pastel display for Easter, or rich warm tones for Fall and Holiday.
  8. For parties use Tea-lights in small sandwich bags weighed down with some sand and set on your porch and the path to your house to set the mood. You can use old glass containers, or inexpensive cylindrical glass jars from a florist supply shop with tea-lights to carry the same effect inside the house.
  9. Use Pillar Candles in groupings on large decorative plates surrounded by evergreens, Camellia leaves and blossoms, or and glossy showy leaves from your garden for a stunning center piece.
  10. Use Reed Diffusers in place of candles if you have any fear of setting your house on fire. Candles are extremely safe when burned as directed and have been used for centuries for lighting and decoration.
