· Elon’s Musk combines the fresh scents of rosemary and peppermint with the muskiness of champa for a subtle masculine aroma
· Cottage’s woodsy combination of pine, cedar atlas and sandalwood takes you right back into nature.
Anyone interested in something sweet? Check out these three new scents:
· Mellow Marsha is the perfect combination of vanilla, sandalwood and bourbon for a subtle sweet aroma.
· Beach Bum will remind you of the perfect summer treat. Its blend of pineapple, mango, vanilla and blood orange will make you wish you were tanning on the beach.
· Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla Bun of Merriment combines the two best scents of any local bakery: vanilla and cinnamon.
Can’t choose between floral or citrus? Little Victory Candles has got you covered.
· Flora perfectly combines the floral scents of lavender, bergamot and orange blossom with soothing chamomile for a relaxing fragrance.
· Citrus + Sage will always make a room smell fresh with its summer citrus scent.
