What Every House Needs

what every house needs

What every house needs. Beautiful candles and lovely smelling soaps always add a touch of luxury to any space.  So when I’m looking for that something special to spoil myself, I head straight over to one of my favourite find-everything-you-could-possibly-need stores, Da Vinci’s.  Not only do they carry amazing jewelry and gifts but it’s also where I’ve been buying an amazing hand soaps for years.  Although I’m always tempted to buy everything else as well. I have a weakness for beautifully wrapped beauty essentials.

what every house needs

I fell in love with the scent of  Belle de Provence’s Olive & Rosemary when I had my Pilates studio and needed a scent that both my female and male clients could use. Now it has become a staple in my home and I actually make excuses to go wash my hands because this soap smells so good. It always, momentarily, transports me to a field in France. There’s a huge table with all my family and friends gathered for a festive meal. Once I’m back in reality it leaves my hands feeling soft and supple thanks to the fact that it contains olive oil.

what every house needs

I read once that every woman should have at least one luxuriously scented candle. She should light it and have the scent infiltrate her home. It’s the epitome of  of elegance and what every house needs. I have taken this to heart although I am quite picky about what I like. The sound of exotic spices sounds very appealing to me but in reality I prefer a very light or delicate floral.  Since forever I have been buying Voluspa Candles, with Crisp Champagne being the reigning favourite.

what every house needs

With so many delicious names and great product lines, I always find it hard to decide which I like best but recently I settled on an Aquiesse candle by the name of Pink Peony. As soon as I light my candle I can feel all my stresses floating away and that French get together has become just me lying in a field on a lazy afternoon.

I guess this really is the essence of aromatherapy. Whether it be a beautifully scented candle or a lovely smelling soap they can momentarily transport you into your fantasy world.


I believe that this is what every house needs. What are your home essentials?

    I love scented candle! 🙂 Light it up. Stay in my room. Close my eyes and meditate. It makes me more relaxed and at peace.

    1. Yes! I totally agree with you. I can just feel my stresses melting away

  3. …since you asked in reagrds to “pimples”…Origins Spot Treatment! Works wonders for me!


    1. Ohhh! Thanks so much for responding I really appreciate that!

  4. Many of us (especially men) tend to overlook the delights of our olfactory sense. I crave candles and soaps for this very reason. Nice selection!

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I got my husband hooked on nice candles and now he loves lighting them….

  5. miss Margaret Cruzemark

    Oh God, leave me in a store like this and i will never go out, away e.t.c. I love this kind of products.
    Best Regards
    Miss Margaret Cruzemark

    1. Ha! Ha! Ha! You are hilarious but I agree wholeheartedly!

  6. Adorei o novo blog =))

  7. hey doll! thanks for stopping by 🙂 im so happy you’re still enjoying your clutch :):):)
    bwt great post lovvveee the candles and the heavenly feel they offer us !

    1. Thanks! Of course I love my clutch. It was the first thing I won on a blog and I’m planning on treasuring it forever.

  8. Also a fan of Voluspa; my favorite scent is Mokara. I try to stock up when they go on sale at Anthropologie or other small local boutiques.

    1. Oh thanks for the tip. I’m going to write that down and find it!

  9. What is it about candles that makes us ladies just love? I don’t know but this looks like a lovely store!

    1. It’s one of my favourite places. I think scented candles are very feminine and that’s why we love them.

  10. I am a scented candle fanatic myself – there’s just something about relaxing in a candle lit room, a tantalizing smell tickling the senses and the flickering light creating such an alluring atmosphere. That’s why I also use incense sticks and salt lamps – the effect is so soothing 🙂

    1. Oh yay! I’m curious, what scents do you like?

  17. Suzanne Minskey

    What beautiful photos! Makes me want to just reach through the computer and go shopping in that lovely store! I’m a huge sucker for beautifully wrapped gifts as well. This looks like it would be a dangerous shop to have near me!

    1. Thanks! It’s such a dangerous shop, I usually have to leave my wallet at home….
