With Christmas a few weeks away, just about everyone is scrambling to get the perfect gifts for the people they love and cherish. Christmas shopping isn’t always easy, there’s usually someone that is impossible to buy for- they either have everything they need or buy whatever they want, when they want it. Everyone gets a little homesick once in a while. For natives of Philly or PA that aren’t located in the state anymore, Homesick Candles give a little slice (or smell) of home to help heal the homesick blues.
What better Christmas gift to give to someone than a piece of home when they are far away? The Homesick Candle company currently has a candle for the state of Pennsylvania and the city of Philadelphia (as well as Pittsburgh FYI) and their smell will bring you right back to the state and city you know and love.
So, what do these candles smell like exactly? The Pennsylvania candle, the first one of the company to honor the state, has top notes of butter, rum and chocolate. The candle’s description reads, “Enjoy the rich fragrance of caramel, maple, buttery rum, and malty molasses. Like a perfect bite of a fajores, that sweetness is balanced with dark cocoa and dry tonic bean finish.” For those days when you want someone to feel warm and cozy, the Pennsylvania candle the perfect gift.
One the more recent editions, the Philadelphia candle, is my personal favorite. Homesick Candles just added the Philly candle a few months ago and since, it has become very popular (it’s currently out of stock)! The candle is supposed to capture the essence of Philly, with its description reading, “The rich history of the Liberty Bell and the triumph of those iconic steps. Sweet smells from Italian bakeries fill the streets. Musk and vanilla blend to encapsulate the City of Brotherly Love.”
Whether you’re buying a gift for someone close to you, or simply wanting to reconnect to a place you call home, the Pennsylvania and Philly Homesick Candles will warm your home and your heart.
