Travel plans may have come to a temporary halt, but you can now bring the world to your living room with the power of scent. Elysian Fragrances has just launched a collection of natural candles that combine the scents of some of our favourite travel destinations. So while we may not get to sit on a beach in Mykonos at the moment, at least we can pretend that we are with a Citrus & Sea Salt candle and a glass of white wine in hand.

We’ve recently discovered this candle brand and it could not have come at a better time. Not only do they use premium natural ingredients but the scents are delicious. If there’s one thing that can make us feel better while we’re in lockdown, it’s the memories that these scents provide while getting us excited for when we can travel again. While this brand delivers high-quality candles, the price point is far more accessible than others we’ve seen on the market. An 11.5oz candle retails for $34CAD. Here are 5 of our favourite scents.
