In the ongoing pursuit to fill that travel-shaped void in our souls, we've rounded up nine fragrances inspired by the scents and memories of destinations ranging from the wild Mojave Desert to the azure waters of Positano

Byredo, Mojave Ghost 

Inspired by: Mojave Desert, United States of America

The quiet wild of the Mojave Desert is captured in whispers of ambrette, Jamaican nesberry, powdery violet and Sandalwood in Byredo's Mojave Ghost. Enriched with mysterious notes of musk, this heady scent is one that lingers both on your skin and in your memory.

Sweet, spicy and sun-soaked is the best way to describe Lys Mediterranee by Frederic Malle. Designed to capture balmy evenings in Spain or Greece, or golden afternoons on a lush terrace in the South of France, this fragrance feels like a gust of ocean air carrying notes of orange blossom, ginger lilies and musk.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris, Petit Matin 

Inspired by: Paris, France

What does the soft, gentle glow of sunrise in Paris smell like? Fresh lemon from Calabria, paired with floral notes of hawthorn and lavandin from Provence, and sleepy notes of musk and amber. Keep the theme going with Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris' Grand Soir, which evokes the magic of crisp evenings in the City of Lights.

Aesop, Rōzu Eau de Parfum

Inspired by: Japan

An ode to French Modernist architect and designer Charlotte Perriand, who was enchanted with Japan, Rōzu by Aesop is an ode to the Japanese garden rose that was created in her name. The fragrance is an intoxicating blend of rose, bergamot, shiso, ylang ylang, and pink pepper. It is the Australian cult brand's first ever floral fragrance.

Seoul is the lively heart of South Korea's thriving cultural scene, bringing the world fresh takes on music, fashion and film.

Tom Ford, Sole di Positano

Inspired by: Positano, Italy

Inspired by the sparkling azure waters of the cliffside village on southern Italy's Amalfi Coast, Sole di Positano by Tom Ford is a refreshing blend of sun-drenched citrus; think lemon and mandarin with Italian bergamot, petitgrain bigarade and a sharp contrast of shiso leaf.

Goldfield and Banks, Velvet Splendour

Inspired by: Australia 

Long drives through Australia's vast, cloudless countryside and sunburnt flowers inform this dreamy scent. According to Goldfield and Banks, "The first inhale is an immediate mix of green stems, yellow blooms, cool air and warm light. Bold, sensual and glamorous."
