Homesick Candles

Who can say they´ve never been homesick? No one, that’s for sure… and we do also know there’s an intimate connection between scents/odors and memories… mix up these two premises and you get the concept behind Homesick Candles, an American made item, hand poured and using a soy based wax that mixes some fragrances that we usually associate with some states. So for the Texas one you get a scent with hints of leather, cotton & sage, on the New York one you get mostly apple and pumpkin. Each candle will burn between 60-80 hours, and although you get only 27 states for now, in a nearby future 50 will become available.
