Forget the DeLorean—all you need is one whiff of Otherland’s latest candle collection, and you’ll be transported back in time faster than anything Doc Brown could dream up. The brand’s sleek packaging and tightly curated scents (offered in sets of three) have earned them a cult following online, and their latest venture is sure to take that fandom to the next level. The Carefree ‘90s Collection is exactly that: a set of breezy, floral scents inspired by the decade’s biggest trends. All three scents work together in a room, since none are cloyingly sweet or overpowering.

otherland dreamlight candle 728

Best for Recovering Mall Rats: Dreamlight

There’s Dreamlight, a mix of wild freesia, plumeria and tangerine that’s strangely reminiscent of after-school trips to the mall, where you scoured Claire’s and Bath and Body Works and sipped an Orange Julius while debating whether Jonathan Taylor Thomas or Leonardo DiCaprio was hotter (though both took up residence on your locker wall, obvi).

otherland glosspop 728

Best for 'Babysitters Club' Members: Glosspop

If you grew up wearing Teen Spirit (Romantic Rose, naturally) and your Lip Smackers roll-on gloss was always on point, you'll want to go with Glosspop. This peachy-pastel candle is a blend of “strawberry gloss, hard candy and frosted rose,” which sounds like the olfactory equivalent of gummy bears dissolved into sweet tea, but we promise it isn’t too sweet-smelling. It’s really more of a rosy scent, with a hint of fresh strawberry—like a sophisticated take on, well, Teen Spirit.

Best for Modern-Day Kat Stratfords: Blue Jean Baby

OK, sweet isn’t really your thing. Maybe in high school, your dad was more likely to greet you with a “Hello, make anyone cry today?” a la Julia Stiles’s father in 10 Things I Hate About You. Or maybe you just prefer a muskier scent. Whatever the case, if you want to bring on a wave of nostalgia without an overtly floral candle, go for Blue Jean Baby. It combines notes of freshly washed denim, mimosa and white musk that fill a room with a smell that’s every bit as refreshing and pure as that scene when Heath Ledger performed the soccer-practice-stopping serenade of every high school girl’s dreams. You know the one.
