Check in time: Each Friday launches a new travel destination and prompt, so check back to this post weekly for more vacay fun:

  • (Week 7: 8/12 - 8/18) Home is where the scent is: Sometimes we can all use a little piece of what we call home. πŸ‘πŸ’• What fragrance item (perfume, candle, diffuser, etc.) would you bring that always reminds you of home sweet home?

 

  • (Week 8: 8/19 - 8/26) Cold weather hydration must-haves: Snow, icy winds, and cold temps – it’s not hot everywhere this time of year! Some of those most breathtaking sights take place in the cold! What are you bringing to keep your skin hydrated and feeling healthy?

That's so handy to have on trips @itsfi and brings a little bit of home with you,  love this πŸ’—

@CynthieLu, thank you. It’s a nice scent to unwind to - calming. 😍

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

I really feel at ease when I smell my BBW Hot Cocoa & Cream candle.

 

My friend's grandmother's house always had the best high end fragrance smell.  I wish I knew what it was.  Not only was it beautiful, but it reminded me of all the good times we had over there.  What bliss to be young and with my best friend.

@greeneyedgirl107 That candle sounds divine, sweet scented candles are usually my go-to.

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

Very yummy @greeneyedgirl107  🍫 β˜•οΈ πŸ˜ƒ

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

Beautiful memories @greeneyedgirl107! πŸ₯°

I have been living very far away from home for years and there are so many scents that bring me home! 

Any candle, diffuser, burning stick, with frankincense scent will bring me home. Yes, it’s funny, I know, a church scent. But it is how all churches in my country smell and I always loved it. It relaxes me. 

And as far as perfumes, an intense earthy and woody one will also take me home, reminding me of my walks to look for mushrooms in the pine forests. I specially find men perfumes falling under this category. The one that takes me home the most is HERMÈS Terre d’HermΓ¨s Pure Perfume It is strong, earthy and woody. I love it! 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

I just enjoyed reading this so much, @Saradestin. It sounds like you have some wonderful memoriesπŸ’— that church scent…I think I can also relate to thatπŸ˜„

 

I do remember my Grandfather slipping me gum during services, I believe it was Tidal Wave. There was a β€˜burst’ of liquid (what I can only imagine was sugar syrup) hidden inside the gum. What a treat.

Those are also beautiful and sweet memories @eshoe πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@Saradestin I know exactly what you mean by the "church smell", haha. So great that it brings you back such a great memory of your home country. That smell in particular reminds me of spending time with my grandparents in Europe as a child. Every church I've ever been to with them, the churches there always smell like that.

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

Aww, that’s so nice @QueenMarceline ! The sense of smell has incredible memory!

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@Saradestin It really is incredible, sometimes I can smell a scent passing by on the street that triggers an intense memory of a person or place.

(Week 7: 8/12 - 8/18) Home is where the scent is: Sometimes we can all use a little piece of what we call home. πŸ‘πŸ’• What fragrance item (perfume, candle, diffuser, etc.) would you bring that always reminds you of home sweet home?

 

What a great question, as far as perfumes go there are a couple that just somehow remind me of home or give off a particularly home-y feeling. The ones that come to mind instantly are: 

TOCCA Stella 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray 

Maison Margiela ’REPLICA’ Beach Walk 

 

As far as candles go, I've always been extremely fond of sweet/baked goods scented candles. That particular genre is always something that's lit in my home therefore, will always remind me of home. My all time favorite used to be Yankee Candle Banana Nut Bread but I'm fairly certain they have unfortunately discontinued it. 😞

 

Another one I light quite a bit during the winter months is Yankee Candle Christmas Cookie which I can consider also quite home-y. 

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

I love you scent picks @QueenMarceline , nooo if the one you love is discontinued 😭 that is always such a bummer

Re: Vacay Summer Challenge: BIC World Tour – Talk about your favorite fragrance products that remind you of home! (Week 7)

@CynthieLu Thank you πŸ™‚
