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.

Scent profiles for each state:
SoCal- rose, carnation, and jasmine
NorCal- pears, apples, cloves, cinnamon, and vanilla
Colorado- spruce, cedar, sandalwood, amber, and cinnamon
Florida- citrus, bergamot, vanilla, and amber musk
Georgia- Magnolia, aster flower, peach, and white musk
Massachusetts- apple cider, coffee, tonka bean, and cinnamon
Michigan- cherry, chocolate, honeysuckle, rose, cinnamon, and sandalwood
New Jersey- candy apple, cranberry, and vanilla
New York- apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin
North Carolina- blackberries, peach, and smoky barbecue
Ohio- carnations, honeysuckle, and orange zest
Pennsylvania- caramel, maple, buttery rum, and malty molasses
Texas- dark leather, fresh pine, and lemon
Virginia- pine needles, fir, and sandalwood
Washington- soft rain, steeped Earl Grey tea, cedar, and patchouli

    Great smell, and an all around attractive gift. I bought this for a good friend who recently moved to Japan with her husband who is in the Navy and I am so excited to give it to her. Perfect mix of housewarming gift and a little piece of home.
