We had the Voluspa Santiago Huckleberry candle in our shop for many years before I finally broke down and tried it. Year after year I continuously heard everyone rave about it. Even though Santiago Huckleberry is on of Voluspa's best-selling fragrances, I was reluctant to try it. To me, the cold throw on it came across as a jam smorgishborg that only Joey from Friends could enjoy. The thought of jam-overload scared me.
Finally, I had to try it. As the candle warmed, the fragrance opened up and revealed the most wonderful, warm scent. Notes of vanilla provided comfort and relaxation. The description doesn't list amber, but the scent was so warm and deep it comes across like warm, sweet amber. Truly lovely.
Voluspa Santiago Huckleberry is one of those unique fragrances that is loved year round. In the winter it's cozy. In the summer, it's full of fruity fun. On warm days, it pairs will with a Blackberry drink like this:
2 Parts Acai Berry Vodka
1 Part agave nectar
1 Part fresh squeezed lemon juice
Shake and pour over ice
Santiago Huckleberry also layers well with the Crisp Champagne fragrance by Volupsa. How and when do you enjoy the Voluspa Santiago Huckleberry candle?
