If you’re feeling restless from being at home all the time, perhaps you should stop and smell the roses. Yes, really. Fragrances are particularly potent in evoking a specific place or experience, and the (hopefully) happy emotions tied to that memory. So when the cabin fever kicks in, try lighting a scented candle, and allow the aroma to whisk you away from the real world for a while. As it so happens, Dolce & Gabbana has a number of la dolce vita-inspired candles to help you do just that.

Drawing on the label’s proud Sicilian heritage, the collection comprises six different candles – Il Nostro Giardino, Pino Mediterraneo, Neroli, Gentiluomo, Incenso, and Alloro – infused with fragrances that encapsulate the joyful Mediterranean spirit of the luxury house. Each candle is enclosed within a ceramic vase in the style of “Sicilian heads”, a tradition that traces back to the Moorish conquest of the island over a thousand years ago, and is handmade and hand-painted by artisans from the ceramic capital of Caltagirone.

Designed in the likeness of a regal queen whose tiara sprouts a prickly pear cactus, Il Nostro Giardino carries notes of rose, citrus, and geranium, while Neroli plays her attendant king, steeped in neroli (but of course), jasmine, and orange blossom. Imbued with spicy yet soothing frankincense, Incenso takes shape as a wide-eyed owl with vivid yellow and green feathers. Gentiluomo and Pino Mediterraneo, on the other hand, take shape as a pair of amphora vessels, one stacked with tropical fruit and perfumed with piquant citrus, and the other scented with earthy pine and covered in barocco swirls of majolica blue.
