If you simply can’t stop buying scented candles these days, it’s understandable, especially given that most are looking for inexpensive ways to spruce up our spaces and turn our living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens into magically scented sanctuaries. Rifle Paper Co.’s new botanical-inspired candle line is here to make the case for adding three more candles to your collection, with each scent paying homage to European gardens.

The brand just launched a trio of garden-inspired scents that aim to transport you to Italy and France all without leaving your home — surely a welcome escape if an actual trip to Europe doesn’t seem likely for the foreseeable future. Each 9.5-oz soy wax candle comes in a stunning painted glass vessel and is packaged in a coordinating decorative gift box with gold foil accents illustrated by Rifle Paper Co.’s and CCO Anna Bond.

Each custom-blended scent features floral notes and earthy undertones that will bring instant springtime vibes to your space. Jardin de Paris ($34) pays homage to blooming French gardens and the iconic elements of classic and feminine Parisian style, with notes of peony, white tea, gardenia, and sandalwood, encased in a pretty pink vessel and box.

Francophiles will also love the Champs de France scent ($34), which transports you to the lavender hills and herb-filled markets of the South of France thanks to notes of lavender, sage, rosemary, and bergamot, providing a calming, grounded, and earthy scent in teal blue floral packaging.

If you’ve got the Italian coastline on your mind, you’ll love Amalfi del Mar ($34), a blend of lemongrass, soothing eucalyptus, sea salt, and jasmine, inspired by the fresh scents of the sea you’ll find near the cliffside villages along the Italian coastline that inspired this scent. In its bright blue floral packaging, this candle is equal parts soothing and invigorating — perfect for those days when you need to breathe in some oceanside air but live nowhere near the water.
