10 Candles That Will Make Your Home Feel Like A Tropical Paradise

We may be in the middle of summer, but it doesn't mean that we get to spend as much time we'd like at the beach. We still have to keep up with our responsibilities such as work, chores, and trips to the grocery store and sometimes it doesn't leave much room for anything else.

So since you can't wholeheartedly enjoy the outdoors, why not bring it into your home instead? No, I'm not talking about setting up an artificial beach in your backyard. It's much easier and cheaper.

One of the best ways to create the right ambience and set the mood in your home is by burning scented candles. You can transport yourself to the shores of South Beach, Florida or the tropical islands of Hawaii without leaving the comfort of your home.

From to AirWick's Turquoise Oasis to Yankee Candle's Mediterranean Breeze, we've sniffed out 10 candles that can help you invite the outdoors into your home and create an atmosphere that'll make you feel like you're on a tropical escape, sipping cocktails while lounging beachside.
