The Voluspa Maison Blanc Mini Tin Candle Set had been on my wishlist for quite some time and I was fortunate enough to pick it up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The set includes a trio of decorative tin candles made with essential oils, coconut wax and cotton wicks for a clean, fragrant burn with every light. Each candle is 4 oz. and has an approximate burn time of 25 hours. This specific set is currently exclusive to Nordstrom ($24) but you can also purchase them individually in votive and full size format on Nordstrom as well as the official Voluspa website.
Each candle has a superior throw that is consistently good with an even burn every single time. The scents are wonderful with a high degree of potency that effortlessly fills up a room within seconds of starting a burn. Aside from being lovely home fragrances, they are also nice decorative accents as each comes housed in a ornamental tin that livens up anything from a shelf to well-thought out vignette.
The three scents in the set include:
- Macaron: features notes of the delicious and colorful famed Macarons de Paris. With its sweet veil of signature gourmet flavors synonymous with the sugary treat, the scent pays homage to the interior of a French bakery.
- Prosecco Bellini: is a refined fresh blend of ripe peaches and sweet pitted apricots muddled with sugar that is not overly sweet.
- Saijo Persimmon: considered to be the finest gourmet variety, notes of Japanese saijo persimmon are layered with peach and red currant. It’s both fruity and fresh without being overly perfumey and provides a seriously luxurious experience.
While the minis are totally adorable and a great medium to sample scents, of course the better buy is the larger size. Voluspa is one of the very few candle companies where the minis/votives are just as good and true in fragrance as their full-size counterparts. Packaging-wise, the Maison Blanc Mini Tin Candle Set are crisp tins adorned in rich colors and make beautiful home accents even when the candle is long gone and are recycled for one purpose or another.
Overall I think the Voluspa Maison Blanc Mini Tin Candle Set is a luxurious buy. Beautiful with strong throw and unique scents that is priced extremely fair. Out of all the Voluspa candles, the three scents in this trio are a perfectly melody of softness and soothing elements with an opulent undertone. Perfect as a sampler set for yourself or as a holiday treat for someone else!
