What is your ideal vacation? What does it smell like? For some of you it may be a skiing trip and it smells like aspen. Others may love camping and associate the smell of a campfire with pure joy. For me, it’s a beach or a pool: the smell of a pool, the rustling of palm trees, the scent and sound of the ocean waves and seagulls. In stressful times, you might (like me) try to conjure up these images of vacation. Luckily, if you’re like me and believe life should be a beach you now have little help. A recent trip to Bath & Body Works revealed a new set of spring and summer candles – two of which resulted in one immediate thought “these smell like vacation.” I love them so much that I’m just not sure where to place them. They immediately conjure up the sights, smells, and sounds and the resulting relaxation of what they are named: “Poolside” and “Oceanside”. Check them out, close your eyes, and enjoy the mini-break!

As you can see, the images on them also evoke memories of vacation and prompt relaxation.
Are there any scents or candles that immediately conjure up pleasant memories for you?
Wishing you the best of everything,
