Berry Bros & Rudd bar at the Royal Albert Hall

We believe that smell is one of our most powerful travel senses – just think back to when you first inhaled the aroma of a fresh-baked baguette in Paris, or took in the bloom-scented breeze in Indonesia. Whether you want a reminder of your favourite getaway, or you’d just like your hotel room to smell a bit more like home, we chose our favourite travel candles by destination. Throw one of these little gems into your bag, strike a match and take a deep breath.

Candles to bring while traveling

1 The pick Diptyque Feu de Bois
The warm and woodsy scent evokes a fireplace on a cold night.
Where to burn Your wintery, rustic ski retreat – preferably while sipping hot toddies on a sheepskin rug.

2 The pick Capri Blue Coastal Volcano
A combination of pineapple, verbena, coconut and lemon will have you jonesing for a tropical drink in no time.
Where to burn When you’re on island time in Ibiza.

3 The pick Voluspa Sake Lemon Flower
Blended with lemon flower and rice wine, this zesty option is a refreshing choice first thing in the morning or before your happy-hour cocktail.
Where to burn The land of sake and sushi.

4 The pick Malin+Goetz Dark Rum
Malin+Goetz’s popular candle is an intoxicating mix of bergamot, amber, vanilla and, yes, rum.
Where to burn Nothing says rum better than the Caribbean.

5 The pick Urban Outfitters City Scapes Lower East Side
The New York-themed candles span the city, but we’re partial to Lower East Side – a flirty and exotic mix of earthy santal and coconut flower.
Where to burn In it’s namesake of course!

6 The pick Tokyomilk Gin & Rosewater
We love the whimsical design of Tokyomilk’s candles, and the notes of mandarin, rosewood and mimosa flower shine beautifully in this chic tin.
Where to burn Where better to drink gin than in London? We think the unexpected citrus and rose combination suits the city perfectly.

7 The pick Apolis Transit Issue
This musky (think cypress and fig) soy candle will burn for 40 hours, making it perfect to enjoy for even the longest holidays.
Where to burn Cypress trees and long trips call for Greece.

8 The pick P.F. Candle Co. Neroli & Eucalyptus
A modern and exotic combination of neroli, sandalwood and fresh eucalyptus has us dreaming of some serious hammock time.
Where to burn A lush, far-flung locale like Bali.

9 The pick Apotheke French Lavender
The heady dose of lavender provides an instant dose of calm, while a subtle hint of geranium adds a little something extra.
Where to burn Go head over heels for lavender in Provence.

10 The pick Henri Bendel Jasmine
Sweet jasmine, peach nectar, and mandarin orange make for a beautifully feminine combination.
Where to burn If you love the smell of jasmine, welcome to Los Angeles.
