Wanderlust. A little scrolling on Insta, a few clicks on Pinterest or perusing favourite travel blogs or magazines. It doesn’t take a lot to get us inspired. “From past travels and future travels. Being a Sagittarius, you could say I have the travel bug,” explains Pam Weinstock when asked about where her inspiration comes from. The designer, photographer, and purveyor of elegant, travel-inspired scented candles captures the essence of places from Kyoto to California.

Let’s start with a trip to Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, where we’ll be staying at the uber-luxurious Kasbah Tamadot: a five-star hotel owned by Monsieur Richard Branson, no less. Who could fail to be wowed by one of the world’s most incredible rose ponds? The fresh mountain air heady with lush notes of rose and hints of Moroccan spice – Aphrodite is one gorgeously feminine scent, and quite different to traditional rose aromas. A candle to save for me-time or long soaks in the tub with a good book.

Each of the candles features one of Weinstock’s eye-catching designs: “I am inspired by a scent with a specific print in mind,” explains the designer. And even better – you can choose a scarf or cushion to match your candle – featuring the corresponding print. Next on our itinerary? Dubai’s Royal Mirage – with a candle which combines traditional, opulent Middle Eastern aromas of musk and spice with a fresh, water-inspired notes – reminiscent of the hotel’s sumptuous fountain. The scent? Subtle, sexy and elegantly understated.

The latest candle in the collection – A Winter’s Tale – is sure to appeal to minimalists, with a print inspired by California’s Big Sur. The balanced scent of citrus underscored with patchouli, lavender and vanilla calls for cosy nights in cuddled up in blankets with a box set. And finally – our favourite: Hana. “Japanese for blossom, portraying the serenity and Zen-like beauty of the garden at Ryōan-ji Temple in Kyoto”. It’s a tribute to perhaps one of the most Instagrammed, wanderlust-inducing phenomenon out there – cherry blossom. With the prettiest of prints, the Hana candle combines blossom, mimosa, magnolia and linden to conjure up the purest of all spring aromas.
