The 4 perfect candles for creating a winter escape
While all our Euro Summer dreams might be on hold and we mourn visions of itty-bitty bikinis and banana lounges, now is not the time to succumb to Ugg boots and trackpants… (but also, you should because no one is ready for jeans).
There is something about scent that can bring back a million memories. For anyone with a serious case of the travel-sads, we’ve curated a go-to list of candle fragrances that will have you hopping from snow-covered cabins to tropical seaside escapes from the comfort of your loungeroom, bedroom and/or bathroom, all in the space of a dinner party or two.
‘Passion in Positano’ By Glasshouse Frangrances… need we say more? Before you head to Peter Alexander and buy six of these, we can confirm that this fragrance gives you the impression of barefoot wandering through cobbled Italian villages, while falling in love with the local fisherman's son. So yes, we highly recommend.
Paris or New York? Porque no los dos?!
If you’re after a scent that’s a little less spritzy and a little more NYC luxe, look no further than Kmart. These ‘New York’ and ‘Paris’ fragrances are the perfect combination of subtle and sweet and are an easy win if you are looking to amp up sophistication levels in your home.
The gentle scent of Sandlewood and Ylang Ylang available at Bed, Bath N' Table is an absolute winner for that fruity fragrance of a summer getaway (and the packaging is oh-so-cute!). Derived from the tropical Ylang Ylang, tree this scent will have you Hula dancing through your hallway in no time.
If your idea of the perfect getaway involves clay wraps, motivational mantras and green smoothies, we’re about to make all your 'namaste' dreams come true. This Meditation Aroma Blend is derived from scents of Cassis (guilty, we also had to Google this; a sweet dark red liquid made from blackcurrants) and Persian orange. This heavenly combination is bound to give you a good dose of relaxation with a side of zen.
