My Dream Excursion with Archipelago Scented Candles

Posted by on Oct 31 2012 | archipelago candles

Archipelago Havana Jar CandleAttracted by their striking colors, I came closer and inhaled those wonderful and complex fragrances, one by one. Soon as I realized that they were inspired by favorite destinations from around the world, I started sorting them, as they are some kind of scented tickets to these divine places. First I took Bali. It was a while since I had planed a trip to this magical island, so it seamed like a logical choice. After that, several other high-end candles from Archipelago Excursion Collection with alluring names were delivered to my flat. And I have promised to myself – before a wick burns out, I have to visit the destination that particular candle represents. My Bali Jar Candle was about two hours from its end, when I had the airplane ticket in my hands.

Naturally, I have continued with exotic islands and very soon, Havana, Madagascar and Fiji found the place on my bucket list. First, I enjoyed, for about 87 hours, a rich, smoky flavor of the Archipelago’s bestselling Havana Candle, tasting a sexy blend of bergamot, Cuban tobacco leaf and ylang-ylang, and then, just before the jar’s bottom came into view, I took a flight, letting other senses to be awakened by breathtaking beaches, a thrilling atmosphere and the seductive music of this Caribbean island.

Although I have decided to be more patient with the Madagascar Candle, at least until I recover financially, I simply could not resist its sweet flowery fragrances of white orchid, vanilla, freesia & jasmine. Or it was just another call from a tropical paradise. Anyhow, my 60-hour jar candle, poured in a beautiful apothecary style glass was disappearing faster than I had planned and Archipelago’s excursion led me to the southeastern coast of Africa. Well, it was pretty hard explaining my reasons to the family, probably because there was no logical explanation, but I could not stop this strong passion for traveling.

Yesterday, I lit my Archipelago Fiji Pillar Candle and enjoyed an exotic summer blend of coconut, sugar cane and lemon leaf scents. It has 60 more hours of burning time, so I am still pretty relaxed. Well, to be honest, I have already started dreaming about new destinations. Off course, with Archipelago as the only travel guide that I need.

This luxury candlemaker offered me Europe and gladly accepted the new challenge. For a nice intro into the upcoming Oriental experience, there is an Istanbul 3 Wick Tin Candle with its rich, exotic mix of black cannabis, amber and rose leaf. Than, it is time for the beautiful Greek island Santorini and finally, Archipelago will bring me to Italy, in the heart of the romantic Tuscany region.

Hurry up, there are a few more places left for this tour. But first, to make dreams come true, you need to inhale deep. Do not hesitate. Wonderful flavors are all around.

As luxury candles have become popular, thanks to people who want to buy affordable luxuries that make life more pleasant, the market has been flooded with many brands of candles, all claiming to offer exceptional quality. Some brands stand out above the rest, and Archipelago candles are just such a brand. There are many things that make Archipelago candles stand out:

  • Archipelago candles are hand-poured. Hand pouring slows the process, but ensures that each candle is perfect. Candles made at a factory can have all sorts of flaws that are not noticed until after the candle is sold, but hand-poured candles ensure quality real-person testing and therefore a better candle.

  • Archipelago candles are made with high-quality ingredients. You simply cannot make a good candle from bad ingredients, which is why Archipelago candles are made from over 50% high-quality natural soy wax, which is combined with the best fragrances and fragrance oils to create a superior product.

  • Archipelago candles offer exceptional selection. Archipelago candles not only include many fragrances, but also entire collections of fragrances for you to choose from. The Archipelago Botanicals Excursion Collection, for example, includes candles with spicy, woodsy, floral scents.

Archipelago Botanicals Home Collection Candle are specifically designed to set the mood in every room of your home while Archipelago Botanicals Destinations Collection Candles make you feel like you are on an exotic adventure by brining you the delicious fragrances of exotic destinations.

  • Archipelago candles feature a better candle experience. Archipelago candles are designed to burn for hours. In fact, most of the candles in the collections burn for sixty hours or longer. They require little trimming and attention because the high-quality wicks and wax produce virtually no soot. Since the fragrance oils are blended seamlessly with the wax, the candles are richly scented when unlit and continue to exude their beautiful fragrance to the very last drop of oil. Plus, the ingredients used are perfectly safe. Archipelago candles are crafted carefully and do not contain unsafe ingredients. This is important, especially when you consider that some cheap candles have lead in their wicks.

  • Archipelago candles offer unusual and innovative blends of scents. Rather than the basic, sickly fragrances you get with inexpensive candles, Archipelago candles are designed to offer unique and intriguing scents that you and your guests will adore. The Archipelago Amalfi candle, for example, is an intoxicating mix of olibanum, olive blossom and sage scents. The Archipelago Demeter candle combines orange, patchouli and cardamom scents into a delicious fragrance.

My Favourite Archipelago Botanicals

Posted by on Feb 03 2009 | archipelago candles

It’s very hard to choose from among the many Archipelago Botanicals candles. That’s because each of the Archipelago candles is a work of fine art. These candles are not your average wax products. Each Archipelago Botanicals candle is made from the best ingredients, including over 50% natural soy wax. Each Archipelago Botanicals candle is also carefully hand-poured and uses only the best fragrances so that the candles burn longer and cleaner and prove more fragrant than just about any other candle on the market. Just one casual sniff is all it took to convince me that Archipelago Botanicals candles were something magnificent.

Some days, I think the Archipelago Botanicals Excursion Collection Candles are my favorites. These candles blend spices, woodsy scents and flower fragrance into one intoxicating mix. I find that men love them because they are not too feminine or flowery but these candles are still softer and more muted than most traditionally “masculine” scents. The wicks are completely lead-free for your complete safety and each candle is encased in a stunning apothecary-type thick glass jar to match all décor. Each candle burns for 60 hours and not one minute of that is scent-free.

Other days, I think the Archipelago Botanicals Signature Candles are my favorites. These candles come in a rainbow of intoxicating and unique scents, including African Freesia, Almond Sage Candle, Bamboo Teak, Bergamot Tobacco, Blackberry Sage, Burl Wood, Casablanca Blossom, Cucumber Melon, Gingered Grapefruit, Jasmine Hibiscus, Lavender Spice, Lemon Eucalyptus, Loganberry, Pomegranate Citrus, Rhurbarb Vanilla, Wasabi Mint, White Fig, and other wonderful scents. Each candle burns for at least 50 hours and your candle remains wonderfully fragrant for every minute of that time, so you don’t lose a penny of value.

Some days, nothing but the Archipelago Botanicals Destinations Collection Candles will do for me. These candles are wonderfully luxurious, with some of the best fragrances in the world. Each candle burns for an incredible 90 hours and comes gorgeously gift-wrapped with a luggage tag.

Sometimes, I am convinced that Archipelago Botanicals Home Collection Candles are my favorites. These candles include delicious gourmet scents for the true sophisticate. The candles burn for more than 90 hours, so I really get value for my money (and I love that). Some of my favorite fragrances from this collection include Arugula, Caramel, Currant, Ebony Wood, Expresso,  Gingergrass, Green Fig, Guava, Hyacinth, Hydrangea, Jasmine, Lemmongrass, Lindenwood, Magnolia, Mojito, Rosemary, Sweet Pea, Sycamore, Vetiver, and Wisteria, although there are many more fragrances to choose from.

 

Some days, I just want Archipelago Botanicals Monogram Collection Candles in my home. Each of these candles is a visual treat, because they come monogrammed with an initial that gives a clue to the scent inside. Each candle box is a stunning pastel with a crystal attached. Each candle burns for 60 hours with no fuss and no soot. The monogram makes this a wonderful gift for everyone, but I have to admit that my favorite candle is the “M” – for me.
