I’m really pleased with myself. I think I have just discovered the perfect Christmas gift for my friend although I am in two minds as to what to do. My friend is an avid wine drinker, her favourite tipple of choice being Prosecco. She is also a keen chocoholic, foodie, candle lover and she loves to read and watch movies. You’d have no ideas what I have for her if you hadn’t read the title of this post. The gift I have for her combines two of her favourite things Prosecco and candles. OMG!!!!! I know it sounds amazing doesn’t it. I was very excited to hear that you can get Prosecco scented candles although unsure if the company could pull it off and ensure a great aroma with the scent of Prosecco but surprisingly they have succeeded. The one I have smells simply fabulous. In fact this candles smells so good that I am not sure what to do. Do I
a) give the candle to my friend and buy another for me?
b) give her the original gift I got for her a little while back – a dvd box set which I know she will love but in my opinion is not quite as lovely as the candle?
To help you help me decide here is the candle in question:
The tin the candle comes in looks very pretty. I love that it is rose coloured to match the scent which is Prosecco rose (with key notes of sparkling pink Prosecco and rose petals). The inside of the tin is gold coloured and there are gold dots on the outside of the tin indicative of the sparkle that Prosecco is well known for. The lid is pretty and the information found there is not excessive. When you lift the lid the aroma is almost hypnotic and addictive and you find yourself inhaling deeply, once, twice, more, to enjoy it further. The lid is useful as it prevents dust collecting on the candle and the company “Voluspa” have also considered environmental impact suggesting the tin to be used for trinkets once the candle has been burnt. There are two wicks in the candle and it will burn for approximately 50 hours which is useful to know. All Voluspa luxury scented candles are made with no phthalates, no parabens, no sulfates and are not tested on animals. This is a gorgeous luxury candle with the scent to match and I think most will love the sweet floral fragrance, in fact I couldn’t imagine how anyone couldn’t. The cost of this candle is £20.
There is another Prosecco rose scented candle (£35) in this range which burns for 60 hours. The custom voluspa-designed glass captures the antique pressed glass style of the 1920’s. This too comes complete with an embossed lid to keep the creamy coconut wax dust-free when not in use. As well as candles you can also get a diffuser (£40) designed using 18 fine-gauge rattan reeds to increase fragrance distribution and lasts 4-6 months. Don’t they all look beautiful! These make lovely gifts for family and friends all year around.
If anyone wanting something a little smaller or for a lower budget then the Voluspa mini candle in a star embossed tin with the same scent maybe just the thing. It’s burns for 5 hours and costs a mere £10 for one of the most incredible scented candles you could ever buy. I know I keep going on about how great this smells but it really does and I wish that you could smell this through the screen as you read. If this scent was available as a body spray or perfume it would be guaranteed to do well.
There are many more candles to choose from on the site and at the moment you can get 10% off so if you want to see for yourself how gorgeous a scent this is make sure you take advantage of this great offer.
What do you think guys, do I buy another or keep quiet and save this for myself?
I have been chatting to the guys at Voluspa who have kindly said I can give away one of their £20 Prosecco Rose candles.
