It already feels like summer and if there was no pandemic, it means we’re already making travel plans or waiting for our trips. Sure, a lot of local destinations have opened up for tourism but there are still those who choose to wait until things calm down. If you miss traveling but you’re waiting for the pandemic to end, here’s one way to make you feel like you’re on a trip: light a candle!
A candle may not be the first thing you’ll think of when you want to reminisce travel, but these six will make you feel like you’re in a different place. A great thing about these candles is that they’re available to buy on Shopee!
Check them out below:
1. Lit AF
Lit AF has a delicious-smelling collection with interesting names. Left on Read smells like peppermint and eucalyptus, while Orgasm has the aroma of rose petals. The collection also has candles that make you feel like you’re at the beach, like Mr. Right (citrus, sea salt, and ozone), Nasugbu (sea minerals), and Designer Lifestyle (sea salt and orchid). Buy Lit AF here.
Light up something from Somewhere Candle Co.’s Escape Collection to make you feel like you’re somewhere else. Maldives has “notes of sea salt, refreshing bergamot, jasmine, and a hint of grapefruit” for that “perfect sunny aroma tropical vibe.” Meanwhile, Santorini has notes of “Mediterranean fig, olive, marine air, and lime.” If you’re not in the mood for the beach, try Iceland, which has notes of “icy peppermint, hot cinnamon, and cedarwood.” Buy the candles here.
Staycations also count as traveling, right? Relive mornings waking up on a memory foam bed and wrapped in a thick duvet with Wick It! Candle Co.’s Staycation candle. The scent is described as “fresh linen that will embrace you with a luxuriously soft and sparkingly clean scent of freshness.” It also comes in a cool retro enamel cup that will vibe with any ~aesthetic. Buy the candle here.
4. Mood Candle
More than just a season, traveling is a mood. As the name, this candle brand translates “moods into scents with the intent to enhance the mood you’re in.” Calm has the fragrance of fresh bamboo, which is designed to bring you inner peace. If you’ve been to Kyoto, this might remind you of the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. Buy the candles here.
If you like to hike in the woods, give the candles from Home Studio Scents a try. Into the Woods promises to be a woody, fresh, and light fragrance with notes of “sandalwood, patchouli, sage” and a “hint of orange.” Meanwhile, Campfire has hints of vanilla, cinnamon, and bergamot perfect for cold weather. Buy Into the Woods and Campfire here.
If you want to explore the breadth of the Philippines through scent, check out the Luzviminda Collection from JKandles. They have three variants: the Luzon, the Visayas, and the Mindanao. Luzon takes you to the “enchanted mountains and forests of the Cordillera in Luzon” with its green and ozone aroma (and base notes of amber and musk). Visayas promises the “adrenaline adventures, natural springs, and pristine beaches of Visayas” through its ozone and green floral fragrance (and base notes of wood, vanilla, and powder). Lastly, Mindanao brings you the “stunning beaches and jaw-dropping waterfalls of Mindanao,” with its sea salt and ozone aroma (and base notes of wood and tonka bean). Buy the collection here.
These candles are sure to transport you to your favorite or bucket list destinations, so make sure to check them out on Shopee!
