How like time this scented candle journey has flown: ¡Hola amigo! ¡Bienvenido a Scent From Barcelona!

In April, our seventh scented candle stop centres on the Catalan capital, where, like Joan Miró brushstrokes, voluptuous vapour streams from airplane arc over the pencil-thin lines of the Castell Montjuïc Cable Car. With your back to the sea and the soft sun on your neck, you zigzag up the perma-hectic Las Ramblas past the not unpleasant cool and shade of department stores and fashion houses, through the surreal Semana Santa Easter Festival procession and back into the spring-shine up towards Antoni Gaudí’s pulchritudinous Park Güell. From the peak of Carmel Hill, looking back onto the city, scintillating zephyrs suggest citrus – certainly mango. While a saxophonist croons into the early afternoon, you plan the rest of today on the now hazy horizon: Sagrada Família, Casa Batlló, Arc de Triomf and then, maybe, home.
The slightly surreal Semana Santa Easter parade inspired Scent From Barcelona; the sweetness of spring in Spain – in terms of in-season fruit – was also a factor.
