Trapp Candles – Beauty in Simplicity

Posted by on Mar 27 2009 | trapp candles

Trapp candles make simplicity into an art form. Unlike other brands, Trapp candles don’t depend on marketing gimmicks, overly elaborate packaging or cute ads. The reality is, the quality of these candles speak for themselves. Pure and simple, Trapp brand candles are designed to be naturally the best candles you will try.

It all begins with the finest quality of wax. Each Trapp candle is made from a customized mixture of fully-refined paraffin and soy wax which releases scent perfectly and burns just the right way. The wax is carefully poured and each candle includes a high-quality lead-free wick that burns cleanly with a minimum of soot. Of course, each candle is completely and perfectly saturated with a rich scent that lasts from the moment you open a Trapp candle until the last drop of wax is gone. Trapp travels the world to find the finest fragrances possible, knowing that you don’t want just any perfume in your home.

And the fragrances in Trapp candles are surely worth those global research missions to uncover fragrances. Trapp travels the world over to find the very best ingredients for their fragrances. They buy lavender from France and lemongrass from Asia, because these countries produce the finest of these ingredients. The professionals at Trapp then combine the fragrances to create unique scent combinations that fill your entire home with scent day after day. In fact, Trapp is so convinced of the quality of its perfumes that it makes a simple guarantee: “A Trapp candle or spray is guaranteed to fill a room with fragrance or we will replace it…even a votive.”

Trapp candles come in many exciting fragrances that will delight and inspire you. The beautifully packaged Trapp Amber & Bergamot candle, for example, produces a smooth and exotic fragrance that is sultry without being overpowering. From bedroom to living room, it creates a rich environment. The Trapp Lemongrass Verbena candle is another example of perfectly complementary scents. The citrus of the lemongrass and the exotic warm notes of the verbena create a warm, crisp fragrance that is always luxurious, never overwhelming.

Trapp candles come in a standard medium poured size of 5 ounces. This provides 40 hours of burn time. Each candle is 2.75” wide and 4.75″ tall, packed simply and elegantly and encased in a thick glass jar that looks beautiful in any room. The high quality glass jar can be reused as a small vase or accent after the candle has burned out as well.

Even before you light your Trapp candle, the delicious fragrance will stop you and make you notice that a Trapp candle is not like any other candle on the market. You can easily use unlit Trapp candles as sachets around your home and once you light a Trapp candle the fragrance will fill your home with a delicious, light fragrance. You owe it to yourself to engage your senses and create a haven in your home. Trapp candles allow you to do both – easily and with style to spare.
