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.
