Bringing along a pint-sized scent can easily transport your hotel room (or camping) experience into something a little bit lovelier, sexier, or more magical. Catbird’s travel-friendly candles have lids on them, so bonus points for that. We love the After Hours scent, which has notes of tobacco flower, smoke, and leather.

Model Lindsay Ellingson swears by this Slip Silk Eye Mask for travel (she puts Klorane eye patches underneath, while she sleeps)—and so do we. Because the brand uses only the highest quality of silk, the mask feels extra soft, but thick enough to black out the surrounding lights, on your face. Say good-bye to those face lines caused by most other sleep masks, and enjoy a luxurious new type of beauty sleep.
