Luxury Perfume and Candles~ Tocca Beauty

Hi Guys! Tocca, the brand meaning "Touch" in Italian is a luxurious clothing, and beauty brand. I know it for its fragrances and candles. The first time I saw Tocca products I was in an Anthropology store and saw the beautiful perfume bottles.  

I think an important thing about fragrance is not only the smell itself but the bottle it comes in. Fragrance is something that always sparks the memory to feel something or remember something and the bottle adds to that feeling.  I just love the way these look!

Tocca's candles and perfumes are named with female names. My favorite of all the names and scents is "Bridgette". These were even named after the famous french model and actress "Bridgette Bardot".

I like these two because like I said a fragrance can often do..it reminds me of New York. When I was modeling and acting in New York, some of the makeup artists on set used to call me "baby Bridgette" after Bridgette Bardot. I did a photo shoot channeling Ms. Bardot...here is a special treat, some of those shots.

What I love about the Fall & Illumenature Candle Review

Hey Everyone! I think Fall IS my favorite time of year. When I try to put into words what it is I love about it all I come up with is a jumbled list: I love the weather, the cool crisp air, scarves, boots, sweaters, candles, the colored /falling leaves, pumpkins, APPLES, baking and a time for exciting new opportunities.

My husband and I went to pick apples about  a week ago...I love these sort of activities!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another fantastic thing about Fall is the cool air and burning candles inside your home to make it warm and cozy. I got the opportunity to try some soy candles from Illumenature.  These candles are hand poured using 100% soy wax, as well as premium scented oils & color.

Here is the assortment I received:

The scents are: Campfire, Cherry Tangerine, and Garden Mist. The first thing I noticed about these candles are the cute simple packaging. They come in really nice glass jars with a steel suction top for storing. I love the colored ribbons around each one.

CAMPFIRE was my favorite. This is a great Fall Scent. I love the colors, brown and orange and the smell definitely reminds me of the fall. It has a burning wood, and crisp fall leaves smell all wrapped into one.

 If I were to recommend one candle of them all to have in your home this fall it is the campfire scent. I will be burning this one every day that I can! Campfires just remind me of good times.. you can make such great memories sitting around a campfire! :) I definitely would love this one in the larger size because I know I will go through it fast. Also, I love the fact that these candles are made of soy/natural ingredients.

This size is the 8 oz size and on the website it costs... $11.99. They are also available in 20 oz sizes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The other two scents the Cherry Tangerine and the Garden Mist Look like this close up!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They both smell absolutely delicious but just in a different way than the campfire. Cherry Tangerine is a very sweet fruity smell. This would be my second favorite scent to burn.

The Garden mist is a bathroomy scent in my opinion. It smells good , it's just floraly and fresh smelling like you'd expect a bathroom to hopefully smell!!!! :)

Both of these are the 8 oz size and are $11.99.

The Illumenature candles come in some GREAT scents for fall besides campfire: Cinnamon Sticks, Banana Bread, Buckeye & Pumpkin Pie! YUM! Pumpkin pie candles always smell SOOOO good and the Cinnamon sticks candle I've heard great things about on Elle Fowler's beauty blog.
