Tocca Colette Candela Review and Giveaway



Every month my home has a different scent to it.  I got nuts for scented candles, incenses and anything that will make my home smell fresh and inviting.  When I inquired about reviewing Tocca's  Colette Candela, I figured this would be just like any other candle i've tried in the past.  I never imagined, in a million years, a candle could smell this good!  But it does, oh my, it does!  Not only that, but aromatherepy works wonders when it comes to relaxing after a long day.

What Tocca has to say:
"Small Indulgences can go a long way.  If there is one accessory with which to adorn your home, let it be a TOCCA candle.  Nothing is more powerful than the way a scent makes you feel.  synonymous with simplicity, refinement and sensibility, TOCCA's candle collection evokes specific moods and emotions linked by an exotic romanticism and Old World sentiment."
I was able to try the Colette candle.  The scent is described as, "Notes of warm incense, musky vanilla and amber embark one on a mysterious adventure.  Alluring and intriguing, like Colette herself, this candle evokes legends of war, spies and the woman at the heart of it all..." 
There are a total of 26 different scents, with elegant names like Sofia, Grace, Havana, and Positano, each with a beautifully refined fragrance.  

What I have to say:    

Pros: There are only great things to be said about Tocca and their candles.  The customer service is spectacular, their product is of the highest quality and the fragrances make you feel so exquisite and elegant, you'll want to burn them for hours!  This candle will last me for months and the scent is strong enough to fill a medium sized room.  And with 26 fragrances to choose from, you won't be disappointed!

Cons: The price is a little high for some people.  For a 10.6 oz/300 g. of wax, which burns for 60 hours, has a suggested retail price of $36.  Well worth the money though, in my opinion.


Want one of your own?
You can try out your own Tocca Candela here: Tocca Candela 
While you're there look around at all of the other quality products Tocca carries!  If you're looking for a refined, high quality candle, look no further!  I very highly recommend all of Tocca's products.
