I’ve been on some pretty… fragrant… airplanes in my day. There are many factors that contribute to a collective in-flight aroma, but one thing’s for sure — “airplane” is a smell I typically wouldn’t want to replicate at home. I haven’t experienced Virgin Atlantic’s new “signature scent,” though.

The UK-based carrier just sent around a press releasing detailing its latest in-flight amenity: “a bespoke scent [designed] to elevate the customer experience, on the ground and in the air.” It’s rolling out now to airport gates, Clubhouses, cabins and even check-in areas — so it might be possible to “catch a whiff” without forking over any points and miles.

But wait, there’s more!

The new fragrance, “Air,” is available in candle form as well. It’s supposedly up for pre-order on Virgin’s retail page (though I don’t see it listed), and it’ll be available at Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses and on-board duty free for £30 (about $42). Perfect for the airplane-aroma enthusiast in your life.
