These candles are made with intriguing combinations of the carefully picked ingredients that are meant to stir the market and offer new amazing mixes to all candle aficionados. Opting for one of these products will provide you an additional doze of exclusivity, since you will be one of the first people who will check them out and cast your verdict on the latest of candle creations. From the broad selection of the new arrivals, we have picked just a couple of recently created candles you can buy.

Cire Trudon Melchior CandleThe first one of these products is Cire Trudon – Melchior (Myrrh & Benzoin) Candle, a product that is exceptionally appropriate for the upcoming holiday season. This highly exclusive candle was made by the brand that has a reputation for being the most luxurious candle manufacturer and was named after one of the three wise men from the Biblical story of nativity – Melchior. As it is known, the Persian scholar brought gold as a gift, and this is reflected in the package of this candle since it comes in lavish gold leafed glass that is naturally hand-poured. This product by Cire Trudon Candles is made in a special limited edition, so beware, if you want one, you should hurry up before the stocks run out. It features a lovely holiday mix of scents of myrrh and benzoin and has the lengthy burn time of 80 hours. Since it is so exclusive and luxurious, it is quite expected that it features the slightly higher price of $98.

Even the higher price tag of $250 is associated with the massive Diptyque – Tubereuse (Tuberose) XL Indoor & Outdoor Candle which has exceptionally large dimensions (the weight of 51.3 oz.) and the formidable burn time of six days and additional six hours. However, the cost of the candle is not caused solely by its size. Its price is even more determined by its voluptuous main ingredient – tuberose. This seductive scent by Diptyque is gotten from a Mexican bulbous herb and is the most valued existing floral ingredient of perfumes. The sensual candle is fitted in a vintage looking earthenware vessel and supplied with 5 wicks. It is very tricky to produce this kind of candle since the process includes 9 different stages. By opting for this product, you do not only get a candle with the most exclusive ingredient, but also a intense fragrance that equals the one made by two standard-sized candles which burn at the same time.

Scented Candles That Will Transport You to Your Favorite Winter Destinations

Posted by on Dec 17 2012 | holiday candles

There is a very fine line between sensing the overpowering joy and almost childish excitement caused by the first snow, and the irritating ‘I hate winter’ feeling that appears somewhere in the middle of the first traffic collapse. To enjoy completely the idyllic winter atmosphere, we need to be relaxed and totally present, which is often just unattainable dream for most of us, while rushing from one to another daily duty.

So, instead of blaming this wonderful period of the year for our bad mood, it is better for us to slow down a little bit and capture the infinite beauty of nature. Before taking a trip to the favorite holiday destination, it is important to use every free moment to relax. To me, scented candles are inevitable ingredients for the perfect home atmosphere during cold winter days and long snowy nights, especially woody fragrances and the flavor of the forest and fresh leaves that create the illusion of the open space. To warm me up, there are various luxury candles with spicy and food scents, such as ginger, basil, clove, pepper, coconut, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla…

Some of them are specially designed to transport us to some magical winter destination. Complex fragrances of these candles are so powerful that I highly recommend you to take the favorite ones on a trip with you, just like I always do in order to complement the cozy atmosphere in the winter house.

Tobi Tobin Chalet CandleOne of my favorite is Tobi Tobin Chalet Holiday candle with an extraordinary complex blend of ideal fragrances for cold days. While an intense mixture of cedar wood, pine and eucalyptus oil is here to quickly refresh you, a spicy blend of cinnamon bark, clove bud, ginger and nutmeg will nicely warm you up. Finally, the addition of sandalwood and Middle Eastern frankincense should have healing and uplifting effect on your body and soul.

Christian Tortu Provence l’Hiver (Provence in Winter) Candle recalls the calming and gentle Mediterranean’s winter, by its stunning blend of cistus, cypresses, thyme and rosemary, while Voluspa Branch Vermeil Grande 3 Wick Candle lures with a fresh winter spruce scent, spiced by notes of citron, balsam and sugar.

With its refined mix of rare wood essences, Diptyque Feu de Bois (Wood Fire) XL Indoor & Outdoor Candle evokes the authentic flavor of a wood-burning fireplace on a long winter day. Another great product that nicely captures the essence of winter is Lafco’s Ski House (Feu de Bois) 3 Mini Candle Set that brings the thrilling blend of crisp, crystal mountain air and the unique scent of a cedar log fire, complemented with a hint of evergreen fir.

Off course, there are a lot more high-end scented candles, waiting to adorn your home with their quality, long-lasting fragrances. Just make a wish and you will find a perfect blend to make it come true.
