Scented candles have the ability to sweep your mind away to far-off destinations. They can drop you in the middle of Bourbon Street for a Mardi Gras parade or propel you to the outer reaches of our universe. And when your budget doesn’t agree with your travel desires, you can tap the secret power of candles to whisk you off to paradise, too!
For these candles, their job is beach. They’re overflowing with a taste of the tropics: breathe in the spa-like scents of an oceanfront resort, or drink up the coconut and citrusy splash of a delicious pool-bar beverage. You might as well find your swimsuit and sunhat—you’re just a match strike away from vacationing on a tropical island!
