For Vie Luxe, the divine new collection of candles, creams, and bath crystals, Marjorie Gubelmann Raein and Daniel Benedict based their fragrances on remembrances of travels past. The jasmine and frangipani in "Palm Beach," for instance, takes you for a stroll on Worth Avenue; "Maldives" puts you at the One&Only resort on Reethi Rah via a blend of Ceylon tea, heliotrope, and palm leaves.
