This candle is a love letter to wandering, which we appreciate more than ever since so many of us are currently unable to explore the world as much as we might like to right now. Give yourself a little bouquet of wanderlust when you light this scent of rum, geranium, rosemary, vanilla, sandalwood and oak moss. $85, Byredo.
