These 5 scents will remind you of your favourite holiday destinations

Fragrances hold the power to help us feel like a whole new person, or even mentally transport us to a whole new faraway land.

Our sense of smell is deeply linked to the limbic system, the part of the brain responsible for memory and emotions. When we inhale a fragrance, the olfactory receptors in our nose send signals directly to this region. This is why certain smells can instantaneously evoke strong emotions or memories, even those long forgotten. For many, the scent of saltwater might bring back memories of beach vacations, while the aroma of pine could recall a hike in the mountains.

If you’re stuck between meetings with no time to hop on a flight any time soon, allow these popular fragrances to give your mood a quick pick-me-up by reminding you of your favourite holiday destinations.

An ode to the city of New York, this fragrance opens you to an experience like no other!

A modern, creative and diverse fragrance, pick this one up if you’re in love with New York’s dynamic, diverse vibe.

2. Paris, France: Furla Romantica Eau De Parfum

Paris, popularly known as the City of Love, is one of those places that has made its way to almost everyone’s travel bucket lists.
