Voluspa Candles - The Vermeil Collection



Last fall Voluspa candles wowed us with the launch of the new Vermeil Collection.  In case you're wondering what the name means, vermeil (gilded silver) relates to the silver detail on the Corta and Petite Maison containers.  The packaging is just stunning, in true Voluspa style, and we love all the fragrances.  This new collection replaces the old Seasons Collection.

Some of the fragrances remained the same such as Makassar Ebony & Peach and French Bourbon Vanille (two of my favorites!).   Voluspa Makassar Ebony & Peach is a dark, peach fragrance and is one of Voluspa's best selling scents.  It's sexy and appeals to both men and women that like peach fragrances.

French Bourbon Vanille is also a top seller for Voluspa and is one of my absolute favorites.  I use this fragrance on a regular basis at home and covet the room sprays I have left that have been discontinued (Traci - please bring them back!). 

Voluspa resurrected the Clove Pomander fragrance that was discontinued a few years back.  We're so happy for that as Clove Pomander had a strong following and is a great scent for those that enjoy clove or spicy fragrances.  The Voluspa Clove Pomander Corta Maison candle was a huge hit at the holidays with the beautiful red jar.

Frost Pinecone has a new name - it's now Branche Vermeil.  I'm not sure if the fragrance is exactly the same or if it has been tweaked, but I absolutely adore it!  I enjoyed this fragrance more than any other through the winter.  It's a warm, slightly woodsy scent that can be enjoyed year-round.  The packaging for Branche Vermeil is gorgeous!  The lid on the Branche Vermeil Corta Maison candle sparkles and looks beautiful when not in use.

Champagne Rose is a new fragrance for Voluspa and a very welcome addition.  If you love rose and/or champagne fragrances be sure to try this one.  It's just lovely.  If you're not a huge fan of rose fragrances, don't fear this one.  It's not a heavy or overwhelming rose but rather light and bubbly from the champagne.  It's very youthful so get Grandma out of your head.  I love the color on this one as well.

Voluspa Chestnut & Vetiver is another new fragrance.  This one is warm and cozy and a delicious gourmand blend.  I love the color of the Petite Maison and Corta Maison when burning - it glows with an inviting amber hue.

The Voluspa diffusers in this collection are taller and more slender than in the past.  They offer better fragrance throw with a new diffuser oil blend and longer reeds.   The glass is tinted in the same color palette by fragrance but only the Branche Vermeil fragrance has the vermeil detail. I love the little bow that was added - such a nice touch of elegance.

I adore the Petite Maison and Corta Maison styles in this collection as they feature the vermeil detail (they don't show nearly as beautiful in photos as they do in person).  As the candle burns, the light shines through the vermeil offering a sparkly, festive look.  I particularly love the Voluspa Corta Maison candle style as it comes with a lid that can be used as a base when the candle is burning and lid when not in use to keep the fragrance in and dust out.  The lids has an intricate star design embossed on the top and old-world apothecary jar detail on the side.  Though the Corta Maison candle does not come in a box, this is still my favorite style to gift for this collection.

The Vermeil Collection continued the tradition of the Voluspa 3-wick tin candle but added the same intricate embossed star detail on the lid.

Now it's your turn!  Tell us what you think about this new Voluspa collection:
