Do you have a special place that you like to vacation, or is there a place you have been that has a special scent associated with it? Whether it’s the smell of the salty beach air, or evergreen pines, scent is powerful in its ability to trigger memories. I was super excited to year that Yuthica has created a line of luxury candles – the Yuthica Luxury Travelogue candles. These are truly luxury candles – each fragrance is custom blended and unique, and the soy candles are all hand-poured in their New England studio.
There is something for every traveler in this collection: check out of few of my favorites – don’t they all sound amazing???
BORDEAUX – tobacco flower ~ patchouli: France’s Bordeaux province is the most prominent producer of wine in the world. Home to more than 10,000 wineries, Bordeaux is widely recognized for its signature dry, medium-bodied red. Introducing Yuthica’s Bordeaux, a woodsy scent with masculine overtones that pays homage to the bold and rustic beauty of the worlds most celebrated wine region.
FLORENCE – tuberose ~ vanilla musk ~ orange blossom: An ancient treasure trove of art, architecture, fashion and cuisine. Florence (Firenze) has been leaving a lasting impression on visitors for centuries. Made from a blend of tuberose, vanilla musk, and a soft ozonic top-note, Florence is a fragrance as enticing and charming as the city that inspired it.
GOA – sea spray ~ mandarin ~ jasmine: Just 1,429 square miles long, Goa is where the crowded cityscapes of urban India give way to coconut groves, mountain ranges, and beautiful beaches. A center for holistic healing and massage, Goa is famously summed up by the Konokani word ‘sussegad,’ meaning ‘relaxed’. A mesmerizing blend of sea spray, mandarin and jasmine, Goa will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.
I was able to sample a “Cabo” candle, which has key ingredients of olive leaf, lemon verbena, and neroli. Hints of lime and fig tops is designed to make a scent that refreshes, relaxes and resonates. When I opened up the box, it already smelled really good. The Yuthica box is simply beautiful and would make a stunning gift.
The luxury experience continues when you open up the box…the candle is beautifully presented and this wonderful smell just wafts out as you unwrap the candle.
Getting to the candle is really a prize – it smelled heavenly and I absolutely loved the solid black – this is a candle that will go in any room and make an instantly different environment with its absolutely amazing scent.
At $40, this is an absolutely stunning gift for Mom – whether for Mother’s Day or anytime (especially to commemorate a special trip!)
