I recently found out that Selena Gomez side steps super expensive candles in favour of Voluspa Candles, which is an equally luxurious yet affordable brand. Pretty refreshing to know that someone with more money than most of us can ever dream of shudders at the thought of literally burning dollar, dollar bills (yo!). As someone who is utterly obsessed with home fragrance I am just happy that she brought the brand to light (no pun intended).
As mentioned above Voluspa candles are what I would deem affordable luxury, each candle is beautifully presented within a glass holder that can be re-purposed (not worlds away from the likes of Diptyque). Each candle is hand poured and constructed of clean burning coconut wax which is free from phthalates, parabens, sulfates, free from ingredients that have been tested on animals and features a 100% cotton wick. Yeah suddenly all those pricey candles pale in comparison don't they? If you order direct from Voulspa they also through in free postage and packaging within the UK. I know this sounds terribly silly but I always feel cheated paying p&p - ridiculous but I am always more tempted to order if the postage is free.
Like I said if it is good enough for Selena Gomez...
