We love beautiful candles at Touch of Class and when we can find a brand that is Midwest based AND visually appealing we need to sell it in the store. Enter Illume.
Illume started in 1994 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their brand is “a world of pure imagination” and we could not agree more. The combination of the scent, style and wax is all based off of traveling, culture, science and trends. (Doesn’t that sound like a full-sensory experience?!) The jars and tumblers are beautiful and stylish… perfect for entertaining or a housewarming gift.
Grapefruit Oleander and Coconut Milk Mango are two of our favorite scents. The Grapefruit Oleander has a yummy top note of citrus, a delightful middle floral note of jasmine, lily and geranium (among other things) and finishes it off with a base note of cedarwood and vetiver. This candle would be perfect on your kitchen island!
The Coconut Milk Mango top note starts out with a tropical dash mango and pineapple, a luscious middle note of coconut milk and papaya and ends with a base note of vanilla and sugar cane. I could bathe in this scent. (And you can too!)
You will have to come down and smell them for yourself!
Until next time, Stay classy and sassy!
