If you’re living in Australia, You’d be pretty sick of the cold gloomy weather by now and not prepared to wait another few months for the warm weather, we want it now! So sometimes you need to take a quick break or holiday to get that sunny fix you need. The whole Pacifica range is amazing for getting that summer holiday feeling with its bright colours and floral scents. Roll on perfumes, travel candles and solid perfumes are great for travelling, so you need to pick a scent you love. I recently went to Bali for a week off, staying in a villa in Seminyak. I went to many amazing places, each so different from one another, and each reminded me of a different Pacifica by Scentiments scent! The W Hotel was an amazing place to even just go for lunch, the resort pool and beach makes you really feel like you’re on holiday, it reminded me of the scent, Indian Coconut Nectar because of how fresh and beachy the hotel felt. Pacifica's Indian Coconut Nectar is inspired by travels to faraway destinations, this warm fragrance is at once sensuous and fresh. It blends coconut, delicate vanilla, and creamy vetiver with exotic floral accords of ambrosia to leave skin beautifully scented.

The beach bar, restaurant, and DJ set on the grass, coupled with an amazing sunset felt so warm and amazing. The palm trees and the warm air reminded me of the scent Malibu Lemon Blossom because it felt so fresh fruity and warm! This fresh scent captures the free spirit of the Pacific Ocean with Lemon Blossom, Litsea Cubeba, flowering Angel's Trumpet, fresh herbs and salty sea breezes.

I think the best scent to describe BodyWorks would be Tahitian gardenia. This heady, vintage-inspired blend showcases the sacred Gardenia bloom, a symbol of love, unity, grace and strength. It's sweet, smooth and slightly citrusy aroma is reminiscent of Jasmine, Sweet Orange and Tea Leaves.

It is a spiritual hotel or Day spa which has many different treatments including Chakra balancing, energy feelings and fire ceremonies, as well as natural massages and facials. Everything is natural and organic and the restaurant is has a completely raw and organic menu. As soon as you enter Fivelements you feel more in touch with nature and more spiritual and when you leave you will be truly relaxed. The best scent to describe it would be Tibetan Mountain Temple, Vetiver and Indonesian Patchouli are the base of this tranquil, incense-like blend, while Ginger sits lightly in the middle and Orange provides expansive lift for these distinctive essential oils.

For this, I would choose the scent, Tuscan Blood Orange, it reminds me of the sunset, In this delectable blend, juicy and spicy Blood Orange is offset with subtle Strawberry and Raspberry notes and grounded in fleshy Mandarin and Italian Sweet Orange.  An orange connoisseur's dream.   [caption id="attachment_193" align="alignnone" width="300"]Rock Bar and Tuscan Blood Orange Spray Perfume Rock Bar and Tuscan Blood Orange Spray Perfume[/caption] Choose your favourite Pacifica scent to take on your next holiday, or to even feel like you’re in Bali. Roll on perfumes, travel candles and solid perfumes are great for travelling, and each of the scents I mentioned come in every one of these forms.   Happy travelling and bring on summer!
