The Power of Perfume
If you’re an ardent lover of perfume yourself, then you know the power that lies in a fragrance. It’s often a finishing touch to an outfit that completes the way we identify ourselves. However, perfume and fragrance in general are not one-size-fits-all and a look into perfume vanity trays can tell us a lot about a person. These days you can in fact match your energy, personality, and mood to a fragrance and the options are endless. Fragrances vary and they speak to the individual and intimate part of ourselves.
Fragrances For Every Need
Perfume packaging and aesthetic have also been adorned along many a perfume vanity tray for decades. The perfume display has long since been a marker of feminine energy, but also individual aesthetic.
Perfume has the ability to transform our moods and impress those around us. It has the power to make us feel more confidant and attractive and sometimes even powerful!
More importantly perhaps is perfume’s ability to evoke memories that stir our emotions. Even powerful enough to transport ourselves to a destination far away. The sense of smell is one of the strongest senses that we have which can not only conjure up images of distant destinations, but it can inspire our imagination!
So whether you’re looking to reminisce over past travels or looking for the perfect beauty gift, we’ve got just the fragrance for you! Today we’ve put together a list of 7 captivating fragrances that make the best gift for a world traveler.
We’ll begin with a favorite Italian destination. If you’ve never experienced the paradisiacal Italian island off the coast of Naples, then now’s a great time to try out 19-69 Capri. A quick boat ride across the Bay of Naples in the south of Italy, Capri is as captivating a seaside town as the gorgeous sea that surrounds this little Italian island.

It isn’t always the easiest to capture the ambient scent of a place. Somehow fragrance house Jo Malone London does it beautifully. Earl grey tea with a hint of bergamot will always remind me of London and traditional English tea.
Earl grey has always been such a comforting, but fragrant tea. Jo Malone’s Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne is a playful take on the calming scent of early grey and the crisp freshness of cucumber. The scent is light and fresh, but memorable nonetheless.
Inspired by the quiet early morning charm before the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, the maker of this fragrance packed years of travel to Tokyo into a beautiful fragrant memory. Interestingly enough while Tokyo itself is often characterized by a fast paced, uber tech, skyscraper surrounding atmosphere, the feeling encapsulated in Gallivant Tokyo is the complete opposite.
With citrusy notes of yuzu and bergamot and complex notes of patchouli, amber, cedarwood and even wasabi to name a few–the composition is beautiful and uniquely juxtaposed. This is one travel-inspired fragrance that will leave you dreaming of those early morning hours before the city awakens.
If there is one fragrance that takes the cake for atmospheric fragrance cues, it has to be Solaris by Agonist. No one is more equipped to better convey the magic of nature than the Nordic countries.
Nature quite literally plays a major role in lifestyle and everyday life so it would seem apropos for this Swedish perfume house to create a fragrance that resonates with the experience of being in nature. If you’ve ever dreamt of experience a Nordic summer, now you can!
