The sense of smell is arguably the most compelling and evocative of all our senses. Aromas bring back memories, sometimes long forgotten, and transport us to another time & place instantly; unexpectedly.
The wonderful trend of home scents shows little sign of dissipating. So I am always excited to see new home scents, candles and room mists.
I was recently introduced to Voyager Life, a Melbourne-based company that seeks to replicate the emotions of travel. Their VOYAGER candle fragrances, room mists and body products are inspired by nomadic adventures. The ingredients and aromas are just beautiful and certainly do evoke, for me, time spent in some of the locations (more on those below).
Housed in beautiful glass vessels, each distinctive fragrance has been developed together with an internationally renowned perfumer to bring you a sensory journey of home scents.
Owner Kerrie Golias spent 20 years in fashion living in different exotic locations. Her work and adventures inspired her desire to build a business around her long-held passions of travel and fragrance. Thus, her covetable VOYAGER home scents were born and are now experienced by stylish homeowners across Australia and in Hong Kong.
VOYAGER tells a story, an autobiography in scent…go somewhere different with VOYAGER
Each VOYAGER candle is hand-poured in Melbourne and encased in double-walled glass giving the appearance of floating. These luxury perfumed candles use customised soy wax and pure cotton wicks. They are long lasting & ethically produced containing no palm wax or paraffin. New to the range are the VOYAGER perfumed room mists designed to evoke a journey and enliven a room.
Inspired by Kerrie’s own travels, you’ll find six amazing home scents.
Alexandra – inspired by Melbourne – bergamot, petitgrain, fig leaves, sandalwood & green
Augusto – inspired by Capri – orange blossom, cacao flower, muguet, vetiver & honeysuckle
Belleville – inspired by Paris – amber, guaiacwood, vanilla, lavender & coumarin
Imperial – inspired by Tokyo – ginger, anise, clove, tobacco flower & vanilla
