RareLumiere has luxury scents inspired by four popular destinations: Notting Hill in the U.K., Florence, Tahiti, and Tangier, Morocco. Each candle is crafted with a limited pooling wax and 100 percent cotton wick that offers a 55-hour burn time.

1 / 4

The brand’s latest release is Tahiti — a rich blend of island air, coconut water, lemon blossom, lime, and greenery. If you close your eyes and breathe in, you’ll instantly be transported to a tropical coastline.

2 / 4

Looking for something a bit romantic? Try Florence, with its deep amber notes, velvety musk, and top notes of fig and current.

3 / 4

Or hit the streets of the Morrocan city of Tangier, where you’ll smell notes of peppercorn and gardenia mixed with top notes of vetiver, amber, orange blossom, bergamot, and madarin.

4 / 4

And finally, you can head to Notting Hill with RareLumiere’s scent that smells of English roses layered with sweet currants, patchouli, and green thorns.

Make your way through the streets of Firenze via the notes of amber, musk, fig, and currant, or head over to the French Polynesian island of Tahiti through scents of lemon blossom, lime, coconut, and dewy greens.

Each RareLumiere fragrance is also available in a compass-shaped scent hanger that can be strung up in your car or bathroom, or even added to your luggage when you finally do get to head out on an adventure. When the scent hangers come in contact with soft textures, a slight fragrance will be left on clothing, upholstery, towels, bedding, etc., so you’ll be left with a signature scent.
