OMG. Homesick Candles Exist
Something about winter weather makes being homesick a lot more intense. Whether you're away at college or working a job that's a long plane ride home away, there's a scent out there that can take you back to simpler days.
The candle company Homesick Candles has built a business around destination-scented jars of wax—and it's actually pretty spot on. Each candle is themed by state and features a theme that any native would find familiar. For example, the Georgia candle has a fruity, floral fragrance with notes of magnolia and Georgia's famous peaches.
Or perhaps you're away from the Empire State and need a little pick-me-up, the New York scent has an autumn fragrance of pumpkins and apple orchards. But, coming from a New York resident such as myself, I'd say notes of cigarettes and sidewalk trash would do the trick! Just kidding.
My personal fave–Texas. You can mentally head back to the Lone Star State with this fragrance reminiscent of fresh pine, dark leather, fresh pine, and lemon slices. Ah, home.
