ToccaCandleMissRo here winding down my week burning one of my favorite candles, Cleopatra by Tocca, and having a glass of wine.

I was first introduced to this line when I used to travel as one of the National Makeup Artists for Molton Brown. One of the boutiques I used to visit was A Beautiful Life in New Hope, PA. First, if you’ve never been to New Hope and you want a little get-away from the hussle and bussle, you must check out this little town. Second, this is one of my all time favorite boutiques. With hot pink walls and carpet, leopard print furniture and accessories, this place is so much fun. And they carry some great brands such as L’Artisan Parfumeur and Dianne Brill/Lip Lingerie cosmetics.

The first time I smelled both the Cleopatra body lotion and candle, I thought I died and went to heaven. The fragrance smelled so delicious you wanted to eat the products. Every time I went to New Hope and A Beautiful Life I would stock up on my products.

Tocca is the Italian name for “touch” and the company actually started back in 1994 with a clothing line. Tocca Beauty was created in 1997 and has been a cult hit ever since. Tocca Beauty’s line includes Delicate Fabric Wash, Candles, Fragrance, and Bath Gels and Body Lotions. Their packaging is beautiful and simple and the names of their products are too, such as Florence and Stella.

Their Candele Da Viaggio is a great gift or a great way to check out some of their most popular candles. This precious, boxed set of assorted travel size candles comes in four of Tocca’s most popular scents: Cleopatra, Grace, Havana and Kyoto. This luxurious set is a perfect gift or a fun indulgence. Each set includes four 1.2oz votives and a signature Tocca matchbox.

Or try their Cleopatra Bagno Da Viaggio, Bath and Body gift set. Housed in a cream colored set up box inspired by the old Italian candy boxes, Tocca’s luxurious Gift Set will indulge you with a travel-sized shower gel, body lotion and candelina in the grapefruit-cucumber scent of Cleopatra. Includes 4 oz. shower gel, 4 oz. body lotion, 2.85 oz. travel candle.
