Candles by Victoria Top 15

One of my favorite candle companies is CBV, or Candles by Victoria, which can be found at . Victoria and her wonderful family hand pour each candle when ordered and currently she has 630 fragrances to choose from!   Over the years, I have become more of a tart fanatic but I still love having a flame sometimes.  I was going to do this as a top 10, but I just couldn't narrow it down that far and had to do a top 15, lol.  These are in no particular order.  

Sugared Spruce - a most unique scent that combines sweetness and greenery. If you are looking for something a little different this is the one.

Peace-this musky floral opens with citrus highlights of fresh lemon and sweet orange. Green herbaceous tones mingle with the fresh fantasy floral accord at the heart of this fragrance as warm earthy notes accent and add texture. The base note is complex of rich musk sweetened with hints of vanilla.

Sonny & Cher -notes of Verbena, Bamboo, Peppermint, Warm Vanilla Sugar and a touch of Vanilla Bean

Peppermint Bark-Bits of refreshing peppermint weaved inside rich and creamy white chocolate.

Country Berry Hotcakes-buttery country hotcakes right off the griddle, layered with mixed berries

Hello Dolly -My daughter and I came up with this mix to duplicate a dessert we make...Bubbling Butterscotch Sundae, Coconut Cream Pie, Fudge Brownie a dessert in a jar!

Neptune's Oasis -One of the most unique scents you will ever smell, this modernized version of a classic summer theme stimulates the senses with its freshness and vitality. The new botanical twist of an oceanic accord has dramatic tones of cactus with fresh green elements and unexpected texture. This vibrant green quality creates a shimmering top note that accents the fragrance signature of fresh sea spray. Unexpected salty accents add newness to the blend while elements of sea moss and warm driftwood create rich undertones that support the fragrance from within.

Elvis - peanut butter and banana

Cherry Fizzy Pop -Our wonderful Fizzy Pop with a splash of Cherry to make you say yummy!!You can even smell the fizz!

Raspberry Guava - really juicy and sweet!

Iris & Fern- Sniff this one and you'll easily picture delicate irises blowing in the wind surrounded by fronds of ferns

Tokyo Spring- A blend of fresh air notes and a hint of Japanese grapefruit, middle notes of spring melons, rose, lotus blossoms, and lily of the valley all sitting on base notes of bamboo and white musk .

White Pepper-top notes of orange, tangerine, and green ivy and middle notes of cinnamon bark, clove and jasmine blend into a base of birch wood, cedar, and musk.

Sexy in Stilettos -a touch of sweetness and oriental musk make this a must have scent for the summer

Why I Autumn-An autumn blend of lemon and apple; followed with middle notes of anise, cinnamon, and ginger; sitting on well-rounded base notes of woods, musk, and vanilla.
