7 Candles To Turn Your Staycation Into A Tropical Vacation
After the magic of Thanksgiving and Christmas and Valentine’s Day have worn off, but it’s not quite spring yet, I get a little bit into the doldrums. The weather outside is so chilly and same-y that I find my thoughts drifting toward warmer climates.
In other words, this is the time of year I most find myself wanting to buy a plane ticket to somewhere with pink sands and turquoise waters. Digging my toes into the warm sand of Waikiki. Exploring a coral reef nestled against the lush island of Bali. Or collecting intricate seashells at sunrise in the Florida Keys. You get the picture!
And when that’s not a possibility? I simply light a candle. These seaside scents instantly transport me to sunnier, sandier destinations, and they’re much cheaper than travel. Here are seven of my favorites.
|Siren Fine Fragrances Sea Glass
From fresh marine scents to the smoky smell of driftwood and a burst of sweet tropical fruit, this long-lasting candle has a multifaceted scent.
|Votivo Island Grapefruit
Juicy, sweet and sour grapefruit is larger than life in an understated classic presentation.
|Capri Blue Volcano
A candle that captures the wild side of a tropical vacation. Explore an aromatic jungle of lush tropical fruit and sugared citrus scents.
|Bath & Body Works Endless Weekend
Make it a staycation that never ends with the relaxing scents of Georgia magnolia, coconut water, and warm citrus in a frosted glass votive.
|Yankee Candle Island Spa
Vibrant lemon verbena and juicy Mandarin orange make this candle evocative of an island escape that is as rejuvenating as it is relaxing.
|Nest Ocean Mist & Sea Salt
A contemporary take on your typical ocean scent which blends tangy sea salt, delicate white tea, and sweet and heady coconut.
|Woodwick Island Coconut
Crushed pineapples and creamy coconut make for a pina colada for the senses. Combined with Woodwick’s trademark crackling wooden wick, and it’s an almost meditative experience.
