For a Hotel That Smells Like Home, Pack One of These
May 23, 2007
Why: Thereâ€™s a lot to love about hotels. Thereâ€™s the room service, fresh sheets every day for a bed that you donâ€™t have to make, and of course, thereâ€™s the mini-bar stocked with overpriced alcohol and M&Mâ€™s. Whatâ€™s not to love right? Well, thereâ€™s the smell for one. Even when youâ€™re staying in the nicest, cleanest, most 5 star hotel around, it still smells likeâ€¦ a hotel. Sometimes the room smells overly antiseptic, which is clearly better than the alternative, but still less than ideal. Other times, the scent of the freshly cut gardenias so generously placed all over your room is a little on the sickeningly sweet side.
The air I breathe is pretty important. Iâ€™m incredibly sensitive to smell, and if Iâ€™m smelling something less than satisfactory, I am not a happy camper. This is why I now pack a 4oz. Lumiere candle whenever I go on vacation. Everyone who has been to my apartment knows Iâ€™m a fan of Lumiere candles, and Iâ€™m currently loving their summer gift set, which includes three 4oz. candles in cucumber melon, citrus rind, and berry smash. Thereâ€™s no smell like home.
Price: $30 for three 4oz. candles
