Homesick is aptly named. Created in 2016 by a group of out-of-town American friends who were feeling nostalgic for the scents of their home state, the candles and reed diffusers are made with a blend of scents that evoke memories.
Its signature hand-poured candles (HK$390 each) draw on the power of fragrance to evoke treasured memories of people, places, and moments.
Hongkongers can now get a whiff of what people around the globe are going crazy over, thanks to multi-brand luxury store Rue Madame, which has brought in a selection from the brand.
Made from a natural soy wax blend with cotton wicks and custom fragrance oils, the candles are non-toxic, contain no lead, plastics, paraben or phthalates and are hand poured in small batches in Massachusetts.
Each fragrance is researched and developed by a team of storytellers, perfume chemists, and chandlers in collaboration with communities.
The results range from the celebratory - such asLet's Toast (citrus and champagne grapes) and Birthday Party (vanilla, caramel and cocoa) - to the sentimental - such as Love Letters (rose, jasmine, sandalwood, peony, red plum and lemon) and Grandmas's Kitchen (apple, cinnamon and sugar cookie).
