VOYAGER candles have sprung onto the Australian market with a huge splash. It was love at first site for The Style Tree Studio Peeps and the magnificent VOYAGER : IMPERIAL (TOKYO) candle. We all gathered to open the mysterious box, and out came a beautifully boxed candle, then on opening the box the fragrance grabbed us and we all fell in love. I personally LOVE the amazing double-walled glass vessel, and its reusable.
VOYAGER creator Kerrie Golias spent many years traversing the world working as a model in the fashion industry. Each of the candles is inspired by and named after gardens encountered on her travels: AUGUSTO, IMPERIAL, BELLEVILLE, ALEXANDRA and TIRTA.
Our Style Tree tested fragrance was IMPERIAL aka TOKYO a wonderful blend of hearty fragrances like Ginger, Clove and Tonka Bean balanced out with some clean fresh touches of vanilla and Anise.
VOYAGER’S exclusive fragrances are blended by one of Australia’s finest perfumers and are designed to be unlike any others – subtle, elegant, complex – fragrances to live and journey with.

Ahhhh my favourite time of the week, candle review time. Candles are the most wonderful gift, they are the gift that keeps giving and the best part of winter nights. I have a serious love of candles and find that they are also a secret love of many.
This week we start the section of Candles Corner and the road testing of one lucky one.
AQUISSE Portfolio Collection candles are relatively new to the market here in Australia, they are beautifully packaged and the perfect gift or simply something you would like in your lounge room or office. We had the pleasure of road testing this stunning AQUISSE Blue Agave Candle. The smell is incredible Crisp Citrus & Melon, Aloe & Fruity Floral, Agave Nectar & Vanilla. In our Style Tree Studio we watched this beautiful candle burn perfectly in its thick smokey glass vessel, its seemed to last an eternity too, burning steadily for hours. The packaging lends itself to both male and female taste and the general consensis was ‘its amazing’. Head to the ‘Everyday Luxuries’ website for more information and a full list of the fragrances. The selection is huge.
