Maude Nibelungen’s new Delta of Venus Collection for SS17

April 7th, 2017 @ Amber

Have you seen the gorgeous new collection from Maude Nibelungen? It’s called Delta of Venus, a Anais Nin inspired collection for Spring/Summer full of beautifully handknitted luxury lingerie in shades of black and baby pink. So beautiful. Ideal for lingerie and even layered for outerwear. I’m really loving the gorgeous knickers and other designs in this collection. I think of this collection as prose in knit form. Truly lovely pieces for day or night. The lookbook photos are gorgeous and the collection really manages to merge romance and sensuality.

Earth Meets Water Handmade Candles

April 5th, 2017 @ Amber

I was completely smitten with these candles as soon as I saw them. I love the boho vibe of the Flower Child collection from handmade candle brand Earth Meets Water. The collection consists of a variety of candles in a pretty amber glass tumbler, with a round logo label on the front featuring a bohemian style logo and boho inspired scents like Daydreamer and Wild & Free. Very loving this aesthetic! The candles are handpoured using natural soy wax and include scent notes like amber, jasmine, cardamom, lavender, nag champa and more. The candles all have a natural wick, and the tops of each candle from this collection features a tiny little seashell and a flower. Really giving the beachy and soft of boho-vintage style vibe to the designs. These are so fun, and I love not only how great they smell, but that the packaging is so damn cute. I tried the Beautiful Being scent and the Wild & Free scent. Beautiful Being has floral notes and slightly spicy notes of cardamom and amber. It’s very relaxing and really fits the boho theme. I hadn’t tried the nag champa scent before that is so popular as an incense, and the Wild & Free candle has notes of it along with flowers and it smells really natural and earthy. I really like both of these scents so much, and the candles themselves are so beautiful. I hope to try more from this collection, and I would love to see this collection expanded with more scents because I think Earth Meets Water is doing some really awesome things in the handpoured candle market. Their original line of candles are available in mason jars or fish bowl containers and are available in scents like Beach House, Enchanted Dreams and Lazy Sundays. Each of the original candles comes with a little charm and friendship twined bracelet. They also offer wax melts in sea shapes or clamshell containers, handmade jewelry and more. Everything has a really natural and flower child feeling. So fun!

Oak and Arrow Candles

April 5th, 2017 @ Amber

I’m loving these pretty candles from handmade brand Oak and Arrow. The candles are made of soy wax and feature a natural wooden wick. Available in a larger jar with screw top lid, or a smaller travel sized mini jar. The minimalist design is really pleasing aesthetically and will fit any type of decor. It has a very modern feel to it, fresh and light! I tried a few of the candles in Wildflower, Coastal Air and Moonlight. They were all so delicious and are made of quality fragrance oils. Moonlight has a unisex appeal and notes of woods and herbs, it’s musky and really arousing. Coastal Air smells of fruity notes and florals, to create a scent ideal for Summer! I think my favorite scent might be Wildflower, which has notes of florals and fresh cut grass. It smells so good! It reminds me of my childhood, playing outside all summer vacation, rolling around in the grass and picking flowers. It has a very nostalgic scent to me and it’s really appealing. They also offer scents like Pumpkin Spice, Fireside and Tobacco and Leather. Shop the entire collection of soy wax candles at Oak & Arrow Design Co.

Compass Candle Co

April 5th, 2017 @ Amber

How cute is this candle from Compass Candle Co? Candles come in a logo book of matches too! The candles are made of soy wax, burn clean and feature a natural wood wick for a crackling effect. The glass jar features the logo on the metal screwtop lid, and then a label on the front of the candle, with the number of the fragrance and the fragrance name written in, giving it that personal touch of handmade. Each candle is handpoured in comes in lovely scents like New York Apple, Hawaiian Sun, and more Many of the scents are based on destinations, which is why it’s called Compass Candle Co! Scent is a great way to time travel and enjoy another place, even from afar by using our sense of smell. I tired the Moulin Rouge candle, and it’s lovely. A fragrant blend of fruit, moss, amber, musk and woods offering a sweet and arousing scent that makes you want to slip away to Paris’s world famous Moulin Rouge! I really like the packaging, it’s modern and fresh, and I like the large selection of scents and destinations such as Alaska Birchwood, Oregon Christmas Tree and Swedish Cream. So many fun and interesting blends! Take a trip with your senses and check out the entire collection of candles at Compass Candle Co.

Morning Glory Teahouse Botanicals

April 5th, 2017 @ Amber

I love handmade botanical skincare and fragrances, and Morning Glory Teahouse has both. I was really drawn to their lovely solid perfume which can be used in their solid perfume compact or pendant necklace. So vintage and pretty! I tried the empty filigree solid perfume locket, that can have an individual solid perfume slipped inside, so you can wear your fragrance on the go! The solid perfume is made of high quality fragrance oils for a smooth application on your skin. They also have a cute little sample set of all of their solid perfumes, so you can try them before buying! The samples come in a gemstone topped purple plastic container, with corresponding note cards telling you about each fragrance. It comes packaged in a purple tulle pouch. So cute! The necklace came packaged in a sweet logo box and velvet pouch, so nice for gift giving. The solid perfumes are smooth and rich and fragrant. My favorite fragrance had to be Ambrosia Nectar, which was sweet and soft and very feminine. It was one of the brand’s first fragrances, and it’s a  classic for a reason! Botanicals like soap and their Rose Drops Lumiere skin serum is fabulous too. Very moisturizing and smells so lovely. If you like natural products and like to know what goes onto your body, you’ll love this brand’s selection. Shop the collection at Morning Glory Teahouse Botanicals.

La Belle Arij Botanicals

April 5th, 2017 @ Amber

I really like trying handmade perfumes, especially ones that have an vintage or luxury inspired vibe. La Belle Arij makes such beautiful botanical goods such as perfumes in astrological inspired notes, as well as their arousing Absinthe inspired scent and feminist Lilith fragrance. Such pretty packaging too! I tired a full bottle of the Lilth perfume oil, and then tried their sample vials in a sample wardrobe, which offers vials in a cute sleeve along with note cards telling you the notes and what the scents were inspired from. So pretty! Such gorgeous packaging and a really great natural and vintage, kind of dark aesthetic. All of the scents are lovely, but I’m really fond of Lilith which has notes of vanilla, black pepper, citrus and frankincense. It’s spicy yet really feminine and rich and beautiful and sensual. These scents are lovely and really well mad. Check out the entire line of high end perfume oils and fragrances at La Belle Arij Botanicals.

Sweet Anthem Handmade Fragrances

April 5th, 2017 @ Amber

I love handmade fragrances and the niche indie collections that feature artisan blends and interesting notes. Sweet Anthem offers perfume, solid perfume and natural perfumes all with organic bases, essential oils and a pretty slightly vintage look to the packaging. Scents are available as samples just to try them out to see which you like best, as solid perfume sticks or as full size perfumes. Each scent is named after a woman’s name, which I think is really cool. Some of the scents include Juliet, Emily, and then a few year based ones including 1948 and a futuristic 2020 one! Notes include yuzu, jasmine, rose, vetiver, and more. I tried the scents as samples which gives you a nice amount to test and sample, and since a little goes a long way, you can get many wears out of the sample vials. My favorite scent? Julie, it’s pretty, romantic, with a hint of sensuality. So fun! Check out the entire collection of eco conscious fragrances at Sweet Anthem Perfumes.
