If you’ve ever come across Voluspa candles while shopping or at the spa, you’ll instantly recognize their colourful, uniquely-designed containers, from rounded, decorative tins to faceted glass jars. Founders Traci and Troy Arntsen began producing Voluspa candles in their home almost 20 years ago.

The California brand designs, formulates and pours their candles in-house, using globally-sourced ingredients and high-quality scents that set them apart from other candle companies.


Their candles also avoid the use of phthalates, parabens and sulfates, are not tested on animals, are manufactured pesticide-free, and use 100% natural wicks.

Voluspa Rose Petal candle

Over the years, the lineup has grown to include fragrant oil diffusers, room & body sprays, hand & body lotions plus candles sized to suit every space in your home or office.

It was tough to pick from all the pretty goods, but we chose and were sent four products from their vast collection to spotlight for gifting this Mother’s Day.

Voluspa Macaron 5 Candle Gift Set

Macaron 5 Candle Gift Set

The Macaron 5 Candle Gift Set includes a variety of scents: Lemon Coco, French Toast, Rose Champs, Violet & Honey and Birthday Cake. This makes it easy to gift for there’s sure to be one or two that will become a fast fave.


They’re packaged in a pretty sliding drawer box with a little black fabric pull, for compact, easy storage until you’re ready to light them.

The macaron-shaped, proprietary coconut wax blended candles each contain about 1.8 ounces of product and will burn for about 15 hours.


We love the swirly glass pattern; when empty, they’re pretty to have on your dresser for stowing jewellery, too.

Box of five; CAD $99.50, USD $75.

Voluspa Rose Colored Glasses

Rose Colored Glasses Textured Glass Candle

Rose Colored Glasses contains notes of pink rose petals, Neroli bloom, warm Amber musk and sweet vanilla in a pretty gift box.

Voluspa Rose Colored Glasses

The 6.5-ounce filled candle is housed in a 3D, honeycomb-designed glass that’s perfect for a small bouquet of flowers once empty.

In addition to Rose Colored Glasses, the Textured Glass candle also comes in Rose Petal Ice Cream, Rose Otto, Bergamot Rose and Milk Rose.

This candle burns for about 40 hours; CAD $33, USD $24.

Voluspa Prosecco Bellini Classic Maison Candle

Prosecco Bellini Classic Maison Candle

Prosecco Bellini has to be one of my favourite Voluspa scents. I always keep a rounded tin version of it in our bathroom. Once you smell it, you’ll understand why! Its mildly intoxicating scent contains notes of ripe peaches, sweet pitted apricots and crisp Prosecco.

The clean-burning coconut wax blend is contained within a deep, thick frosted glass jar designed to elegantly emit light from within when lit.


Maison candles are packaged in a sturdy, two-piece, decorated box with an embossed top that solidly closes to help protect that beautiful scent inside.

This one’s also pretty enough to use when empty as a vase of flowers.

Classic Maison Candles are also available with scents of Pink Citron, Macaron, Saijo Persimmon, Elysian Garden, Laguna, Suede Blanc and Gardenia Colonia.

The candle burns for approximately 80 hours; CAD $41, USD $29.

Roses 3 Macaron Candle Gift Set

Roses 3 Macaron Candle Gift Set

Give your Mom all the roses this year with a pretty package of three rose-infused macaron candles in Rose Petal Ice Cream, Rose Colored Glasses and Rose Otto.


Appropriately named, Rose Petal Ice Cream is the sweetest-smelling of the trio. Rose Otto most closely resembles the scent of a real rose while Rose Colored Glasses lies somewhere between those two scent profiles.

Each of the candles contains 1.8 ounces of wax housed in the same honeycomb-designed pattern as the Textured Glass Candle mentioned above.

They come in a rose-themed box with each candle’s name written on the front in position of its place inside. The box also contains a couple of plastic separators to protect against damage during shipping.


Burn time is about 15 hours each; CAD $53, USD $39
