So I have this thing that I’ve been doing ever since I dragged my husband with me to Thailand back in 2014. I’ve been kind of…well…let’s call it Collecting Scents. I know it sounds mad. Maybe it is even. But I really love it and it’s become one of my favourite travel traditions.
Every time I go on a trip, I find myself a brand new scent to take with me. And ever since I started doing it I have to admit that the Oh So Heavenly range from Clicks has been a huge feature in the tradition. I have absolutely loved OSH ever since I discovered them years and years ago (the lavender and the pomegranate range especially remind me of the early days of my relationship with my husband) and I’ve been using them for nostalgic purposes on my travels.
You see, the Pretty in Pink range reminds me of our fantastic family roadtrip around the Eastern Cape in 2016.
And the coconut body spray reminds me of being in India.
The Moroccan Argan Oil range reminds me of Turkey.
The shampoo with the berries on it reminds me of Zanzibar.
And it’s so nice because every time I use any of these products in my mundane day-to-day life, they transport me back to a beautiful memory that makes me smile.
So I take the tradition very seriously.
This time I got a little bit extra indulgent and got myself a whole range of Oh So Heavenly’s Lily Lovely. And I can’t wait to use it. Of course it’s all politely on hold in my toiletry bag, waiting to be used for the first time on the morning of our flight.
Am I silly?
Do you have any strange travel traditions that you like to indulge in?
