What do you know about amber? Have you ever held a piece of amber? It is smooth, golden, and gorgeous. Amber warms to the touch and leaves a soft, pleasant scent on your hands. The fragrance is warm, exotic and ethereal. This note brings all warmth to any blend that it is a part of.  Amber candles can be sensual or comforting, depending on the blend. The best amber candles include Voluspa Baltic Amber, Voluspa Ambre Lumiere, and scents from Aura, Nest, and Thymes.

Dina from Cleveland, Ohio reviewed the Aura Luscious candle as “one of my favorite Aura fragrances. It’s a sexy, sophisticated scent that’s warm and spicy. The perfect candle to burn for a romantic evening or just to give your home an exotic, luxurious vibe. Definitely something that should be in everyone’s candle collection.” This blend of tangerine, vanilla, sandalwood, musk and amber is warm, exotic, and seductive.

The Trapp Amber Bergamot candle has an outstanding throw of refreshing citrus blended with deep golden amber. Trapp candles are known to have “a bottle of perfume in every jar.” This candle does not disappoint. The fragrance is not overpowering, but it still provides a tremendous throw that will fill a floor with a distinctively delicious scent. A real estate agent customer of Candles Off Main arrives at her showings a little early to light this fragrance before showing a home. She notes that her clients almost always comment on the fragrance. What a great way to house hunt, to imagine calling such a delightfully scented house, home.

Voluspa Amber Candle Showdown
Baltic Amber vs. Ambre Lumiere

Baltic Amber
My friend Jill came to visit me at work one afternoon. I was burning Voluspa Baltic Amber and she noticed. She had just greeted me and was telling me a funny story when she just stopped, slammed her hand on the counter, and asked, “WHAT is that smell?!” I worried for a moment that my recently reheated leftover salmon was permeating the air, but I caught her expression. She looked peaceful and pleased as her nose twitched in search of the source of this heavenly scent. I pointed her towards the Voluspa Baltic Amber jar that I was burning and she cried, ‘Oh, and it’s pretty, too!” She ended up purchasing a jar candle for her living room and a diffuser for her bedroom. It was love at first smell.

Amber Lumiere
The Voluspa Ambre Lumiere candle is also wildly popular. Candles Off Main customer Caitlin from Ontario, California wrote, “What can I say about Amber Lumiere? WOW. This candle is the absolute perfect balance of sweet and musk. The patchouli is simply amazing, yet the shining star of this candle is the syrupy sweet maple-like scent that will cover every corner of your home with comfort. Amber Lumiere is one of the rare candles that I can see myself burning all year long, throughout every season. It is so multi-faceted in its scent, you really do get a little bit of everything from this candle. It’s exotic, sweet, and comforting all at the same time.”

Trying to decide on the best Voluspa amber candle is a tough call. Maybe a blind scent test is in order in the near future? Which do you love?

The Nest Moroccan Amber fragrance is another favorite among amber-lovers. This candle and diffuser will scent a large space with a powerful, sexy blend of Moroccan amber, sweet patchouli, heliotrope and bergamot, with a hint of eucalyptus. Perfect for the bedroom or any room that needs a romantic lift.
Chris Hawthorne, another Candles Off Main customer, reviewed the candle and diffuser.
“I loved the candle and now love the diffuser even more. Unbelievable throw. I have this in an upstairs bedroom and although the scent isn’t overpowering, you can smell it downstairs in the foyer. I prefer this one over more expensive diffuser that I have.”

The Thymes Lotus Santal Candle is an alluring combination of enticing notes like plum wood, patchouli, sandalwood, cocoa orchid, and of course, amber. Dim the lights and let the glow of candlelight help you unwind in a delicious environment created by this sweet, sultry scent. The amber colored jar adds to the majestic ambiance fit for the King or Queen of the house.
