Approximately twice a year luxury candle brands such as Nest Fragrances, Votivo, Thymes, Tocca and Voluspa launch new fragrances and products. Here's what's new for the 2013 spring/summer seasons:
Votivo launched 2 new fragrances for their Aromatics Collection: Jasmine Neroli and Azure Garden. Votivo Jasmine Neroli is a floral blend of mandarin, guava, angelica, jasmine, tuberose, white musk, vanilla and soft woods. This is a great take on jasmine and I highly recommend giving it a try. Votivo Azure Garden is a blend of grape hyacinth, blueberry, prairie grass, red leaf rose, red hunter, tulip, teakwood and vetiver. This fruity floral fragrance is perfect for spring/summer.
Jonathan Adler added a fun fragrance to his Pop Collection: Bubblegum. This smells exactly like hard bazooka bubble gum that has the powdering white coating. If you're looking for something sugary this will hit the spot.
Thymes launched three new fragrance for their Wildwood Collection: Woodland Violet & Mint, Fiddlehead Fern & Crabapple and Linden Blossom & Nectar. These spring/summer fragrances are offered in a light green vessel and light brown box to corralate with the brighter seasons. The Thymes fall/winter Wildwood fragrances are offered in a brown vessel and darker brown box. They will return in August.
Trapp created 4 new fragrances: Mandarin Goji, Teak & Oud, Fig & Mimosa and Fine Linen. These new scents are available in the 11oz Trapp candle, room spray and votive candle. Mandarin Goji is a pungent and sweet fruity fragrance. Teak & Oud is a unisex scent that comes across like soft woods. Fig & Mimosa is a fruity floral, not overly fig or sweet. Fine Linen is a fresh scent reminiscent of Votivo Clean Crisp White or K. Hall Designs Washed Cotton.
Tocca added to their fine fragrance collection with the new Liliana perfume. Tocca Liliana is an intoxicating bouquet of muguet, gardenia and peony. There is also a strong peach note making this perfume a youthful fruity/floral.
K. Hall Designs added a diffuser to their Barr-Co collection. This original scent is a blend of creamy milk, oatmeal, vanilla, and vetiver. There is also a new apothecary jar candle for this fragrance that will be available soon.
Nest Fragrances is going to launch a new candle just in time for Mother's Day. White Narcisse offers the modern clean floral fragrance that Nest does so well. This new fragrance is offered in a white, sculpted vessel in packaging made perfect for gift giving.
Voluspa repackaged their Maison diffusers in a larger, taller, clear vessel with slim-line box. The reed color corresponds to the particular Voluspa Maison collection: Rouge (red), Noir (black) and Blanc (natural reeds).
Voluspa also created the new L'Florem Collection featuring 5 floral-based fragrances. This new collection offers 6 products: 3 candles sizes, room spray, roll-on perfume and luxurious hand cream. (You must try the hand cream!) My favorite new fragrance in this collection is Temple Grove. It has the peach notes Voluspa does so well with like in their Makassar Ebony & Peach and Creme de Peche fragrances. This new collection will be in very soon! Look for it here.
