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.

From reading other reviews, it sounds like other people had a better experience than I did with getting scents they wanted that also reminded them of home. I ordered two candles so that I could smell them before sending to my mother for her birthday, and I'm glad I did! They smelled like patchouli and burnt wood, which doesn't even remotely remind me of Washington state and can be found at just about every candle shop everywhere: there was nothing special about these candles to warrant the higher cost, and they had the con of being purchased without giving any real idea as to what the scent was.

I'll just go back to only buying candles I can actually smell before purchasing.

Pennsylvania Scent is Horrible

    Comments about UncommonGoods Homesick Candles:

    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.

              Send someone to Pennsylvania to get a new scent pronto! This one is sickeningly sweet; and yes, I did read the scent profiles. Can't wait to see what my friend from PA actually thinks, but pretty sure I'll get a blank stare or uncontrollable laughter in response. Adopt another home state until they get this one right.

                Gift for a friend living out of state away from home. Attractive design. Scent doesn't really mean much...michigan one smells like any generic candle to me not necessarily reminding me of home in MICH. Still cute tho

                    When I was looking for something to send to my family in Florida, these were perfect! My mom is from NJ and my sister from PA, so I got them each a coordinating state candle to bring a little bit of their old homes to their new home. Smell very nice and have a nice, thick glass and a modern, clean design. I only wish the scents were listed so I'd be able to identify them! My fiance says NJ smells like the shore.
