Kentucky Fried Chicken Candle
Sports fans with big bank accounts can brag that they’ve seen the Kentucky Derby in-person, but now for a fraction of the cost, you can say you’ve smelled the Kentucky Derby. Kathy Werking has created a line of candles that replicate the hallmark scents of her home state. Her Kentucky Derby soy wax candle wafts notes of vanilla-bourbon and mint into the air. Nice job, Kathy, on the decision to leave horse manure out of the mix.
Not into horse racing? Surely you enjoy fried chicken. To create this candle, Kathy actually fries up chicken in natural soy wax and adds an infusion of family secrets. Again, Kath, wise move on leaving out the manure. Finally there’s Ale8, a regional soft drink that native Kentuckians enjoy the heck out of. With delightful aromas of ginger, fresh grapefruit and lime, you’ll surely shock the heck out of visitors when they ask what that smell is and you reply, “That, Bernice is the smell of Kentucky.” [Purchase]
