Do you have a favorite scent from when you were young? A certain smell that will instantly transport you back to simpler times? Well, there’s a candle company for that.

Nostalgia Kicks has released a curated collection of candles that’s almost like having childhood fill the air. From thoughtful fragrance combinations to eye-catching packaging, these candles are designed to harken back to your past in style.

There are currently three candles to choose from: First Rain, Mystery Blue, and Sunday Morning.

First Rain is a midnight black candle that mimics the fresh scent of raindrops hitting the pavement. The sleek packaging features imagery of a play mat and a child wearing a yellow raincoat.

Sunday Morning has a sweet and comforting aroma that will have you reaching for Eggo waffles. The bright and sunny candle is packaged in a yellow box that features a bold waffle illustration.

Closing out the range is Mystery Blue, an option that’s ideal for those who enjoyed a cartoon marathon every Saturday morning. According to reviewers, this candle smells like the discontinued “Scooby-Doo” fruit snacks that delighted many Mystery Inc. fans.

What’s especially unique about this candle trio is that none of them describe the actual fragrance notes beyond what they’re intended to smell like, allowing your favorite moments come back to you over time.

All of the Nostalgia Kicks candles are hand-poured in Los Angeles and have 40 hours of burn time. They’re made from 100 percent all-natural soy wax, and as an added DIY benefit, they come in large glass jars that can be washed and repurposed into tumblers, planters, or handy storage solutions.

Each candle is priced at $30, or you can treat yourself to the full collection for $66.
