A Bit of Your Home Fires

Did you know that scent is the sense most closely tied to memory? In these state-themed candles, it's also tied to geography. Like the landscape, each of the states has its own scent profile that stays with you wherever you roam. These hand-poured, soy wax candles were formulated with input from locals in individual states for thoughtfully authentic aromas. Whether you pine for the big bouquet of Texas or the botanical grandeur of California, they offer a remedy for homesick senses. Handmade in the US.

Wonderful Gift for Anyone Missing Home

Our daughter was so surprised and cried when she smelled the candle. "I don't know how they did it mom, but it smells just like home." Purchased the So. Cal one.

I received the Pennsylvania scented candle as a gift from a friend. I didn't have the heart to tell her how horrible it was, so I just donated it to a local Goodwill, hoping someone wouldn't find the scent as offensive as I did. I love candles and I wouldn't consider myself particularly picky with my scents, but I couldn't even tolerate this one. I understand that you were probably inspired by Hershey's or maple syrup to come up with what you describe as a "caramel" scent, but this candle smells sickly sweet and overbearingly musky at the same time. I can't imagine anyone enjoying this in their home. This is actually offensive to the Keystone State.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Homesick Candles:

    I think the scent is true to description, and you can smell it when walking in the room even if it's not burning. However, when I burn it, it doesn't really smell any stronger, which was surprising. There is also no lid, and the candle itself is yellowing with only one burn. Overall, I am satisfied, so don't let my few criticisms portray otherwise! I can smell the leather and sage in the candle.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Homesick Candles:

      The candle has a great subtle scent that is perfect for a bedroom or bathroom. The jar is also very pretty. But, it's also neutral, in clear glass with a white label, so it fits perfectly with pretty much all other decor.
