Being a bit of a candle addict, I was thrilled when my interior designer friend, Victoria Cator fulfilled her childhood dream and launched her candle collection Victoria Cator Candles.
Victoria Cator Candles range are sexy and reminiscent of memories, giving you the “madeleine of Proust” experience. Of course, I have my favourite one, “Cuir Sacre” which she defines as “this is a candle for sin….a scent that gets under your skin”. She describes each fragrance in a very colourful, playful way which makes you want to light them all.
“Santa Baby” is of course the most coveted one as the limited edition Christmas candle. Based on Mandarin, orange, Nordic Pine and resin, it is really unusual and quite fresh. Nearly four times the size of her normal ones and with 4 wicks.
Winter calls for the classic “Touche Bois”: “In the library a fire crackles, the hearth gleams beyond a rosewood desk, piled with leather bound books, Italian ink and a lingering puff of black tobacco, lighter fuel tangled with horses, hoof oil and gunpowder. Exciting, evocative and eternal.” A mixture of Juniper, Armoise, Plum and Cedar wood.
“Rouge Ancient”: “Incense wafts at dusk, the echo of chanting in an old monastery”. Its top notes are Eucalyptus, Bergamot, Black pepper.
There are the timeless scents like “Madame Julia” which is “Chic bittersweet, a graceful silhouette steps into focus, audacious and captivating, the happy past remembered with a whiff of the scent of Chamade, in a sports car, a catch-your-breath moment laced with black tobacco, crisp shirt unbuttoned in a heart beat, and the essence of delectable rose petals shaken though the air”
“Pompei” evokes “Heat and dust on ancient Etruscan streets, musical bustle, metals echoing on the smooth stone walls. The smoke of burnt cedar wood drifts through the cloistered cool of marble pillars, silence and incense, dark pews, confessional box mutterings, whispered psalms.”
“La Litrone ” is about “Sun soaked green shutters, the soft warm Provencal evening basks in fields of golden sunflowers. Across the terrace heat shimmers and a ripe fig bursts it’s skin, sweet juice rich like honey caught with amber.” I also need to mention “Delice des Dieux” which reminds her of “A cool church, a song of sweet sultry summer, cream and satin, pearls and champagne, a spray of flowers sing, light pours in, music dances up to the rafters and scent hums exotic, ethereal, celestial. Time stands still while summer shifts on the breeze.”
The quality of the wax is so amazing that the fragrance diffuses in your room even when the wicks are not lit. They are presented in a thick dark green glass jar and have 2 wicks which makes them even more special.
This is the perfect gift for your nearest and dearest; How about choosing the candle which you think match their personality? I would love that as a present, it is really thoughtful.
