If they made a scented candle that smelled like your home town, chances are it would smell like poop. Like seriously, that was our most popular answer from today.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
If they made a scented candle that smelled like your hometown … what would it smell like (what’s your hometown)?

  • The most accurate Grand Rapids Candle would be;
  • A lovely scented burning candle of fresh brewed beer, with small pockets of pee distributed across the candle that burn off randomly, to give you the essence of a strong urine presence. Just as if you were walking in downtown Grand Rapids.
  • Lake water, gentle hint of cow poop, and stale beer and a lot of regret Madison
  • If my home town (a small rural community in Australia) had a candle scent it would be Wheat, Sheep’s wool, and Despair.
  • Grew up on K I Sawyer AFB in the UP. They went around spraying bug spray during the summer. We would see them coming and run inside so we wouldn’t be caught out in the smoke. Gosh, that smell was awful But, going to grandmas, and now where I live in Muskegon, we would always know we were close when we could smell the good ole Paper Mill!! So yeah, pick your Poison!!
  • I grew in Wyoming, Mi. I would have to say cabbage. Only because my mother was always on some kind of cabbage diet and you could smell it the minute your turned the corner to go down our street. You could also smell it later after she ate it (if you know what I mean)
  • It would smell like fresh-baked donuts and cookies. I grew up in Lodi, WI and Weber’s was a 4th generation-run family bakery on Main Street. They used to do tours for the elementary school kids. If I was lucky as a child, I’d have change to buy a snoopy cookie or maybe even a donut on the way home. They went out of business a few years ago now, but I’ll always associate the smell of donuts with my hometown.
