Tocca Colette Candle

Inspired by the French novelist and libertine, Colette, TOCCA's newest fragrance captures the seductive essence of a woman. Known for her romantic liaisons as much as her inspiring writing, Colette embodies the irresistible scent of a woman that lingers on the pillow long after she leaves. Warm, spicy and sweet, Colette is the perfect fragrance for the sensual woman in us all.

The weather is just getting cool so I'm gravitating more and more towards cozy, nurturing fragrances. Sandalwood and vanille work well for me so when I saw Colette I was drawn in from the start.

The eau de parfum has the following fragrance notes:
  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Lemon, Juniper Berry, Pink Peppercorn
  • Middle Notes: Jasmine, Violet, Cyclamen, Pine Needles
  • Bottom Notes: Incense, Musk, Sandalwood, Amber, Vanilla, Cedarwood
Tocca candles are not always a direct duplicate of the perfume, but rather an appropriate compliment. Typically the candles are a simplified version of the perfume, so I'm not sure of all the notes in the Tocca Colette candle. What I do know, is that I'm crazy about it. Really crazy. Ok, I'm addicted to it.

I tried Colette last night to start to get to know her. We were off to a good start but still warming up to each other. I tried Tocca Colette again all day while I was working and we started to connect. Tonight she is by my side again. I've never gone through a Tocca candle so quickly. I'm in heaven. We're BFFs.

The candle is exactly as it says -"Warm, spicy and sweet, Colette is the perfect fragrance for the sensual woman in us all." It isn't your typical sandalwood/vanille combination. It isn't heavy or too sweet. It does has a feminine quality to is. It's sensual, intriguing and curious. Is it the playful top notes of juniper berry and pink peppercorn that tease me? Maybe it's the pine needles leveraging my love for woody notes to make me weak in the knees. Just like a temptress, Colette draws me in, wanting more. Tocca Colette Eau de Parfum

Most sandalwood/vanille candles comfort me, wrapping me in a warm blanket. Sometimes they smother me. Colette, however, is tantalizing and seductive. Like a luxurious cashmere sweater. Soft, chic and elegant. She's surrounds me but lighter. More of a whisper. Sometimes she teases me and I have to find her. In the stairwell. Upstairs in the bedrooms. She's mysterious and I need more Colette candles to surround me in her sultry scent.

I highly recommend buying more than one of these candles or she'll leave you wanting more too. And I definitely need to get the perfume!
