The Voluspa Chestnut and Vetiver fragrance has been repackaged in beautiful royal purple vessels for the 2013 holiday season. This fragrance is part of the Voluspa Vermiel collection. It is reminiscent of rich and warm fire roasted Chestnuts that are peeled, crushed and blended with earthy Vetiver, Oakmoss, and Golden Amber producing a very warm and rich fragrance that is not spicy or overpowering.
Other fragrances in this collection are French Bourbon & Vanille, and Makassar Ebony Peach which were brought back from the retired Season’s Collection, and the Clove Pomander which used to be called Voluspa Holiday in the Original Seasons introductions. New fragrances are Branche Vermiel which is reminiscent of the retired Frost Pinecone, and the lovely Champagne Rose with its crisp and smooth blend of edible White Rose Petals and tart cassis berries in a bubbling bath of Bruit Rose Champagne
For Holiday 2013 the new fragrance of Ponderosa was added to this collection. Look for another post with more about the Voluspa Ponderosa.
The room sprays in the Voluspa Japonica collection have been re-introduced in new
beautiful packaging after an absence of over a year. The re-introduction includes the old favorites of Goji & Tarocco, Santiago Huckleberry and Baltic Amber along the new fragrances of the Japonica collection.
The Voluspa Baltic Amber has been a top favorite of customers with its rich Amber undertones and the creamy smooth Vanilla notes that warms your soul.
These sprays are formulated to use both as a room spray or as a body mist for a splash of fragrance
that will not overpower you. The spray does not have the fixatives that perfumes have for a very long lasting effect, however you will still discern the fragrance hours later.
The new sprays come in an elegant square bottle with golden caps, and an embossed imprinted box that is beautiful enough to give with a simple bow and without wrapping.
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 scent.
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.
When 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!
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Voluspa Candles just introduced the New Maison Blanc and Maison Noir Collections. This new Voluspa Candles collection of eight black and eight white themed fragrances each comes in five items.
The packaging designs on the Voluspa Maison Candles collection is reminiscent of classic cosmetics boxes and graphics.

Voluspa took their run-away successful three wick tins from the Voluspa Japonica collection and made them a little smaller with two wicks instead of three. The price is also less. The two wicks throw more fragrance into your room, and create more light shadows for amazing effects.
A tall and slender ceramic jar with a hinged lid. The lid has openings to allow the fragrance to be released, although it is advised not to burn these candles with the lid closed. both the lid and container have brass rims for finish the luxurious look.
The fragrances of the Maison Collection are complex blends of some basic and many exotic ingredients. Three of the fragrances from the Voluspa Basics collection, that sadly will be retired, will caryy over to the new collection. These are the Voluspa Crisp Champagne, the Voluspa Vervaine Olive Leaf, and Voluspa Saijo Persimmon. Other fragrances resemble existing fragrances with a twist. The Vacarro Orange & Myrhh is similar to the Italian Tangelo with a bit more depth, the Black Figue & Chypre is a milder version the the Cardamon Fig. The Orangerie d’ Azahar is based on orange Blossoms oils like the Dahlia Orange Blossom candle. The Gardenia Colonia is a purer version of the Yashioka Gardenia. Laguna, is an oceanic fragrance the reminds us of the long retired and missed Aqua Deluxe.
Some of the new fragrances are the decadent Macaron, the sultry and a bit masculine Suede Blanc, the Amber Lumiere, which mixes rich amber with subtle hints of patchouli.
This collection is tour de force in fragrance and package design. Voluspa candles has done it again by introducing a collection that will stand out above the rest in the crowded world of decorative candles.
