Hotel Room Odors and Relax
Travel candles can be used to create a relaxing atmosphere in any setting, whether it’s a 5-star hotel or an Airbnb. Candle-producing companies are responding to this demand. There are many options for travel candles, from votive-style versions to your favorite scents to small tins that can be carried on the road. PSA: If you fly, be sure to comply with the TSA’s lighters and matches policies. For your complete scent pleasure, we’ve compiled the top travel candles. Beware of bad smells!
Diptyque Roses Small Travel Candles
Beyonce. J. Lo. Meghan Markle. All stars, all Diptyque fans–Meghan lit the famous candles before and after she got married! The mini version in Roses is a fresh, modern take on the classic floral scent. It will make any business trip feel royal. Psst! The elegant jars are perfect for holding cotton buds after you have burned all of the wax. Upcycle!
Yankee Candle Sage & Citrus Mini Candle
The Yankee Candle Company is the ideal candle for a weekend getaway. The company has been a major player in the candle industry for many decades. Their mini travel candle in Sage & Citrus (they call it a mini), is a favorite of ours. It has a touch of earthiness thanks to the sage, and a little bit of zing thanks to the citrus. Pro tip: Make sure to burn your candles for a long time so that the wax melts evenly. This will prevent the tunnel effect, which can be dangerous, and it will also prolong the candle’s life.
Archipelago Black Forest Travel Candles Tin
This Archipelago candle is dramatic with its black tin & black wax! It’s scented with black currant and Douglas fur, making it romantic and wintry. BYO chilling book.
World Market Copper Tin Travel Candles Rosewood Vanilla
Tin can candles are ideal for travel because they’re lightweight, portable, and durable. This copper version, in a warm and just-the-right-amount-of-sweet-vanilla scent, is a great piece of decor all on its own–perfect for when you want your Airbnb to feel (and smell) more like home.
Threshold Apple Pumpkin Cider Candles
Pumpkin pie, maple syrup, and crunchy leaves are all great autumn flavors. This candle is the perfect alternative if you don’t have access to an apple tree. Although it is a bit larger than a regular travel candle, the lightweight tin makes this easy to take on any adventure. You’ll also have enough cash left over to buy other fall essentials, such as cozy sweaters.
