Ah, finally. Finally, summer is here. Pack away your coats and ugly sweaters, break out the sunglasses and shorts, sip a cold drink and let your mind wander as you start planning your summer vacation. What to wear? How many shoes to bring? What book, or books, or small library to cram into your suitcase for the trip? And of course - what do you want your summer to smell like? Highland Bluff Studio has you covered.
Our travel tin candles and room spray scents are perfect for stashing in a backpack or suitcase to bring wherever your wanderings may take you. Smell is one of our most powerful senses and many scientists believe it is the one most closely connected to memory and emotion - so bring along some of our travel-friendly products and make your journey that much more evocative and magical.
Cair Paravel - Salt, Sea Grass, and Sand
Maybe your travels will take you to a faraway land full of magic and mystery, mountains and forests and rocky crags overlooking the sea. Cair Paravel is the scent for you, a blend of salt, sea grass and sand that evokes the majesty of ancient legends and forgotten kingdoms.
Craigh Na Dun - Stone, Moss, and Forget Me Not
Or maybe you like to spend your time walking through the woods - so what better scent than Craigh Na Dun to spark your imagination with its blend of Stone, Moss, and Forget Me Not. Who knows what doors to other lives you might find as you explore...
Night Court - Sea Salt and Jasmine
Who knows - maybe the fairy realm is awaiting you. Pack Night Court for your wilderness wanderings and be enchanted by its otherworldly fragrance of Ocean Breeze and Jasmine. And even if you don’t find any fairies, at least you can smell them.
BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY
Roughing it in nature is all well and good...for some people. You’ve decided to stick to civilized life this summer, and have gathered your crew of best friends together for a vacation to the glamorous big city.
Wonderland - Milky Sweetness and Adventure
You fully expect to encounter strange characters, fantastic parties and extraordinary sights. A great city is a wonderland, so bring Wonderland scent along with you. Its blend of Milky Sweetness and Adventure will brighten every moment - and save you from any unforeseen cheap-hotel smell.
Ice Cream in the Alley - Raspberry Ice Cream and Nuts
You’ve been sightseeing all day and you’re exhilarated but tired. It’s hot and you’re sweaty and you need something cool and delicious to refresh body and soul. You pop into a charming old-fashioned ice cream shop and indulge - and it’s the best sight you’ve seen all day. Our Ice Cream in the Alley scent with its delightful blend of raspberry ice cream and nuts will bring the happy memory back at a moment’s notice.
Giggle Water - Citrus, Champagne, and Berries
And after a long day, what else to do but go out again, and enjoy a few festive beverages...the lights are bright and twinkly, the music is loud with an infectious dance beat, and the delicious concoction in your martini glass is the perfect end for a perfect city day. Giggle Water will recall the moment with its sparkling, cheerful mix of champagne, citrus and sweet berries.
Romance - Cherry, Raspberry, and Sugar
...and now, don’t lie, you met someone special in the city, didn’t you? And they’re coming to visit you today, aren’t they? Perfect - you know what to do, and we quietly high-five you from offstage. But wait - just one thing to set the mood and create a magical, romantic atmosphere - breathe in the cherry, raspberry and brown sugar of our Romance scent while you put on your cherry-red lipstick and await your beloved’s knock at the door...
HOME SWEET HOME
Planes...trains...automobiles...maybe not. Traveling is all well and good, but what you need this year is a staycation. You live in a great place, that you never get to enjoy with your busy year-round life. So this year, you select a stack of books, call in your vacation days at work, and flip the off switch.
Reading on the Beach - Ocean, Pineapple, and Coconut
First stop? The beach, of course. The sound of the waves and the seagulls, the warmth of the sun and the sand. It’s chaos all around you, of course, but you’re so absorbed in your book that you don’t notice. When you go home at night, light a candle or spritz a spray of Reading on the Beach to keep the moment going with the scents of ocean, pineapple, and coconut.
Reading in the Park - Sunshine, Denim, and Patchouli
What about when you don’t want to go all the way to the beach? It’s a staycation, after all, venturing too far afield defeats the point. So you pack another paperback, your sunglasses and some comfortable shoes and walk a few blocks to the park. Settle down under a tree and enjoy the smells of sunshine, denim, and patchouli that surround you, which our Reading in the Park products will bring back to you even in the dead of winter.
Coffee Shop Reading - Coffee and Pastries
Rainy day? Not to worry. Your local coffee shop has you covered. You know the one, with the mismatched squishy sofas and pillowy armchairs, whimsical decor and indie music playing, with the scent of fresh-roasted coffee and sweet pastries filling the air? Oh...all you’ve got in town is the usual chain store? Well then...pile some pillows onto your couch, brew yourself a cup, and light our Coffee Shop Reading candle for the proper atmosphere as your book whisks you away on an adventure.
