Voodoo Soy Candle (coffee, sugar cane, magic)


| /

Fragrance notes: coffee, sugar cane, magic

Louisiana Voodoo was born of a fusion of West African and Haitian influences that blended with 18th century French culture in Louisiana. It incorporates the worship of ancestors and spirits called loas who can grant favors and good fortune and also act as intermediaries with Bondye, the creator. Pop culture has long been fascinated with the mysterious and magical vibes surrounding Voodoo worship. From the beating drums and rhythmic chanting of elaborate rituals to shops full of potions, voodoo dolls, gris-gris bags, and countless other amulets and talismans, Voodoo has captured the imagination of many and is firmly rooted in the magic and intrigue of New Orleans.

This fragrance is dedicated to the colorful and diverse set of beliefs that is found in Voodoo worship and also to one of the most adored priestesses of all time, the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans herself, Marie Laveau. Devotees of Laveau visit her grave and leave tokens in exchange for small requests. Offerings are common in Voodoo practice, especially when calling upon favors from loa spirits. Known as the loa of the dead and in charge of leading souls to the underworld, Baron Samedi is perhaps the most famous and recognizable of loas for his widespread representation in art as a man dressed in a top hat, black tailcoat, and white skull face paint that stands out in stark contrast to his dark skin. This fragrance has an invigorating base of freshly brewed black coffee, which is one of the offerings commonly given to Baron Samedi when asking for healing, as this loa is also a giver of life. It is blended with the aroma of fresh sugar cane which will sweeten the offering and improve the chances of your request being granted. Add a little creole magic to your life with this coffee infused fragrance that will leave you swaying to the seductive rhythm a Voodoo ritual drum.

2nd time ordering

I found these candles at a shop and have ordered twice now. Read the descriptions and take a chance on the ones that appeal - you won't regret it as they've all been delicious. Voodoo is one of my favorites - a not-too-sweet coffee aroma that doesn't overwhelm. They burn clean for hours and are a gift I will continue to buy for myself.

Great Candles

I loved the candles. Actually my son claimed the voodoo candle. I keep one burning in my kitchen Witchs Brew which is one of my favorites. I love the fragrance of the candles and they do not smoke while burning. I do plan on ordering more.
