Pacifica Mexican Cocoa Soy Pillar Candle 3×6
There is nothing more soothing than a hot bath by candle light and a cup of red rooibos herbal tea. At least that’s how I love spending a quiet evening. Pacifica Perfumes Mexican Cocoa products are so decadent it is unreal! I’ve spoken about their Mexican Cocoa Natural Soap here before and adore this scent. “This passionate blend has the rich, dark scent of Mexican Chocolate at its base. Rounded out with mild notes of bitter Almond, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Vanilla, this beloved Pacifica classic is indulgent, warm and delicious.”
