Voluspa Macaron Candle

If you have a major love of candles and have tried them all, looking for the one that is of exceptional quality, has great scent wicking and just doesn’t cost you your first born, I can only hope you have tried Voluspa! Macaron is one of my favorites and part of the Classic Blanc Collection and comes in the colorfully decorated tin or jar Voluspa has become known for. The scent is sophisticated yet delicious with the gourmand undertones that will have you transported to a Paris bakery enjoying the sweet confection Parisians have made famous. Macron is deliciously blended with the aromas of icing sugar, vanilla, and almond, butter cream custard, sandwiched between two buttery cookies. You will be ever so pleased with the quality loyal Voluspa fans have come to expect and scents that are unique yet so very familiar and comforting.

Poured from a luxuriously clean-burning coconut wad blend, the Classic candle creates a fragrant story written in wax and poured in a glowing milk glass. Macaron de Paris is as much loved for their color as they are for their gourmand flavors.

Enjoy the 8oz colorful tin with 50 hours of clean burning time for $16 or the luxurious 12oz colorful frosted milk jar with 100 hours of clean burn time for a mere $27. Whichever one you chose, you will not regret your choice, they are just dreamy and most certainly to die for! These are available at select Anthropology and Nordstrom stores and at
