Victoria Cator’s Casablanca is a floral lover’s dream. As the fragrance fills a room, it feels like fresh flowers are blossoming around me—almost as if I were Demeter herself, the Greek goddess of the harvest. While lit, the aroma of jasmine and lilies make its way throughout my home, infusing every centimeter with its vibrant and fresh fragrance. Even when I walk by when it isn’t burning, all I can think about is lighting Casablanca and re-immersing myself in its idyllic ambiance.

With a fabulous cold and hot throw, Casablanca consistently makes my home feel as crisp and dreamy as a bouquet of fresh-cut jasmine and lily. Its fragrance is as gorgeous as the flowers themselves, while its name is evocative both of the ancient Moroccan city and classic Hollywood film. I can’t help but feel incredibly romantic when I light its twin flames! This candle burns so perfectly and evenly, reminding me that, while flowers represent summer romances, one’s love affair with luxury candles lasts a lifetime.

The vessel itself only contributes to this feeling with an absolutely stunning visual design. Casablanca offers by far one of the most breathtaking new vessels I’ve seen in a long time. With exquisite gold details against a deep teal background, it’s almost as though the city of Casablanca itself is rising out of the fierce Atlantic Ocean before my eyes. As the wax burns, the two flames illuminate the glass, making the vessel glow like a large emerald gem lit by the moonlight. If I could wear it, I would—Casablanca is just that gorgeous, timeless, and captivating.

What’s even more impressive about Casablanca is that Victoria Cator’s collection only just launched last year. With her debut candle line, Victoria has already found a classic, essential fragrance in Casablanca. While Victoria’s work with Christie’s and as an interior designer across the globe has provided inspiration for decades, her recent home fragrance line proves that her understanding of what makes life beautiful extends far beyond the visual. Plus, she has co-authored a fabulous cookbook focused on highlighting key flavors paired with wonderful table settings and florals.

I’m so excited to see what this new candle line brings as Victoria continues designing luxury candles that are both stunning to look at and smell! Victoria Cator truly is the master of turning a house into a warm, welcoming, and well-loved home – the epitome of a chic and talented homemaker.
