SCENTS OF THE COMMONWEALTH

by Kentucky For Kentucky |

Our mission is to engage and inform the world by promoting Kentucky people, places, and products. We’re excited to announce that starting this Friday, we’re adding “scents” to that mission statement. We’re now in the business of promoting Kentucky’s finest scents. That’s right.

Kathy Werking, one of the Commonwealth’s most prolific movers and shakers, has brought a little something extra to the table. When we learned that Kathy could make kick-ass candles, we commissioned her to do a special lineup just for us.  So she got to work at Kentucky Green Studio and concocted the perfect blend of your favorite scents of the Commonwealth.

This time, we’ve paired her project up with Rachael Sinclair, who designed hand-drawn labels that illustrate the sweetest sides of Kentucky. And who doesn’t want to light up a room with the nostalgic scents of Ale 8, Fried Chicken and Kentucky Derby debauchery? This creative collaboration sparked some heavenly aromas that will easily sweep you away to an Old Kentucky home away from home. We feel blessed, y’all.

*Only 25 candles of each scent will be available. Candles go on sale this Friday November 22nd at 10:30am on our website.

Fried Chicken Actual

Let the fresh, fried sizzle of savory golden goodness drift into your hearts and homes with one of our most delectable creations to date. To craft the perfect xtra crispy aroma, Kathy picks up her cast iron skillet, adds a little seasoning, and gets to work.  To make these candles, she fries chicken in all-natural soy wax and adds an infusion of family secrets. With only 25 of these available, you’ll want to keep this mouth-watering recipe to yourself.

Ale8

Even when you’re away from your old Kentucky home, it’s possible to feel close when you can fill a room with the essence of ginger with a fresh citrus twist.  So relax, displaced Kentuckians, because you may have found the elixir you’ve been missing.  These candles are made with a secret recipe that includes grapefruit and lime essential oils, and will energize any room.

Derby Actual

As any Kentuckian knows, the actual Derby only happens in May. But now the sweet celebratory scent of mint juleps can fill your home all year round – without your friends whispering about your indulgences. Crafted with all natural ingredients, these soy wax candles emit a subtle vanilla-bourbon and mint aroma that will warm you the way only a Kentucky mint julep could. Cheers! BTW- peep that fine ass label. That’s Hunter S. Thompson holding a mint julep standing next to a horse. Yes please.

We have the most navigable waterways in the Continental USA
