If you were away from home and longed for a reminder of The Garden State, what kind of candle would you light?

If you've asked yourself that very question, you're in luck! A company has come out with candles to represent each state.

They're called "Homesick Candles", and they offer everything from, "a hint of leather, a bit of fresh cotton, and just a touch of sage" for homesick Texans, to "a hint of orange, a touch of sea mist, and a bit of driftwood" for displaced Floridians.

So, what does that mean for us?

There are a lot of ways that we could take a New Jersey candle.

  • We have the fresh scents of the Pine Barrens.
  • Our famous cranberries and blueberries.
  • The refreshing ocean breezes.
  • And, um, well, the Central Jersey stretch of the Turnpike.

So, where did they take their New Jersey candle?

According to the website, it includes, "scents reminiscent of the Jersey shore" which, let's be honest, leaves some room for interpretation (ocean air and sand? Funnel cake and taffy? Suntan lotion and sandwiches that have been in the cooler too long?).

If you made a candle for New Jersey, what do you think it should smell like? Comment below and let us know!
