Leave it to Otherland, purveyor of very cool candles, to make florals for spring feel groundbreaking via its new spring collection that smells much like what we'd imagine a Bridgerton soirée would. Abigail Cook Stone, Otherland's co-founder & CEO, describes the brand's Garden Party lineup as "a fresh spin on classic florals" inspired by "childhood fantasies of secret gardens" meets Alice In Wonderland. The six new artfully designed votives feature such romantically named fragrances as Georgette (a southern magnolia, lily of the valley, and white amber) and Verdant Verve (an oakmoss, neroli blossom, and fresh thyme), each priced at $36. "We were thinking about the escapism of a candle, and how scents inspired by the outdoors can transport you at a time where we were all indoors," Cook Stone explains. Scroll ahead for a full sensory experience of each lovely new scent as we traipse through Otherland's secret garden.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

It’s a modern twist on white florals, very elegant and chic."Scent Profile: Southern Magnolia, Lily of the Valley, White AmberOtherland Georgette, $, available at OtherlandUltravioletThe Inspiration: "All about purple flowers like violet and lavender. Tea was another source of inspiration for the collection, so there's jasmine tea in the mix."

This one is what I’d imagine a Monet "Water Lilies" painting would smell like: Beautiful, aquatic flower notes, with some vanilla sweetness in there as well."Scent Profile: Blue Hydrangea, Sheer Hyacinth, Water LilyOtherland Out Of The Blue, $, available at OtherlandClean BlossomThe Inspiration: "We wanted to lean into the idea of crisp linens that might be at this garden party. The past year, I got really into tablescaping, and this is definitely inspired partially by that: An idea of clean, fresh-laundry comfort."Scent Profile: Crisp Linen, Mimosa Flower, Creamy GardeniaOtherland Clean Blossom, $, available at OtherlandLike what you see?
