The 5 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.

Euro Wanderlusting

‘Passion in Positano’ By Glasshouse Frangrances… need we say more? Before you head to Redcurrent, or David Jones 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 MECCA. 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.

Tropicana dreaming

The gentle scent of coconut milk and sea salt available at Bed Bath N' Table is an absolute winner for that fruity fragrance of a summer getaway. Derived from the tropical seas of the islands, this scent by Ecoya will have you Hula dancing through your hallway in no time.

You had me at 'open fireplace'

Secluded cabin in the woods? Now we’re talking. This Jo Malone London Wild bluebell candle available at MECCA, Farmers and David Jones is filled with all sorts of romance-inducing goodies like lilies, bluebells and cedarwood. This suggestive scent is a must-have for those date nights in; mood lighting and all the fancy feels? Check!

Retreat reveller

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 Belle Maison Candle - Persia is derived from scents of Persia, hints of black musk, oud and patchouli. This heavenly combination is bound to give you a good dose of relaxation with a side of zen. This must-have is available at Coco Republic.
