      Collection Spotlight - Votivo Holiday Fragrances

      Collection Spotlight - Votivo Holiday Fragrances

      As the weather begins to get chilly, warm up inside and enjoy one of Votivo's signature holiday fragrances! Votivo launched in 1994 and was one of the first luxury candle lines to be domestically made. They soon gained a reputation for their superior fragrances and quality packaging. Here at the Sassy Bee, we have carried several of Votivo's well known fragrances year round. This holiday season, we are excited to bring you their Holiday Candle collection, available in store and online! The holiday collection has three luxurious fragrances that are sure to spread holiday cheer and truly make you feel right at home for the holidays!

      All three of these fragrances are available as 10oz candles, votive candles, and reed diffuser sets!

      Red Currant

      Red Currant is one of our best sellers from the Votivo line! While you can pick up red currant year-round, now you can get your favorite scent in special edition holiday packaging. The Red Currant fragrance opens with galbanum, cassis, and citrus followed by floral stories of geranium and rose. Full-bodied black currant tamed by sugar and fruity musk remarkably finishes the fragrance. 
      You can find the Red Currant Holiday Candle here

      Icy Blue Pine

      Icy Blue Pine is the perfect fragrance if you can't get enough of that crisp, wintery scent of freshly cut pine trees. Prickly pine potency at its finest, Icy Blue Pine highlights resinous, honeyed fir balsam in combination with frosty, cooling notes of camphor, cedar leaf, and eucalyptus. These aldehydic and aqueous notes provide a snowy fresh backdrop enriched by an earthy culmination of moss, cedar, and patchouli.

      Check out the Icy Blue Pine Reed Diffuser here

      Joie De Noel

      Looking for a fragrance with a bit more holiday spice? Celebrated for its crisp, green fir needle underpinnings, Joie de Noel utilizes supporting notes of cinnamon, clove, and orange to stir holiday nostalgia. Further elaborating on the fir concept, the essence of patchouli and cedar intensify the earthy root. A unique harmonization of tonka, lavender, and neroli draw out a fougere aspect, which easily transitions the fragrance to be enjoyed year-round.

      Cardinal Ornaments


      The cardinal is the state bird of Virginia, and we think that these bright red birds are the perfect addition to any Christmas tree. For a realistic touch, check out the Cardinal Clip on Ornament. This vibrant feathered bird measures 6.5" and is a clip on, making him perfect to nestle into a tree or display on a wreath or greenery swag. For some pizzazz, we absolutely love the Beaded Cardinal Ornament! This felted ornament is covered in glitzy beads and has bright red tail feathers. For a subtle yet elegant nod to the cardinal or any red bird, the crystal red bird ornament is the perfect way to go. This bird stands out when illuminated by the lights on the tree, and is made of shatterproof acrylic to last for many more Christmases to come!
