Coastal Scents: The Vacation Collection by Bella Vela

Are you one of those people who opens and sniffs all the candles while standing in line to check out? I am.

There are some pleasant smells, but none just exactly “it.” I put them back, disappointed.

I want to walk into my home and be immediately welcomed by a beautiful scent – something fragrant, yet clean. I want to be greeted by the scent of being stretched out on an island somewhere, anywhere. Is this too much to ask? You know the scent. There’s a little floral sweetness to it, and maybe orange? Coconut? Definitely some sea.

Well, I found it and I’m happy to share. You can thank me later.
