Kentucky has a Yankee Candle now

Screen shot 2013-08-13 at 10.24.12 AM

Do you want your house to smell like the University of Kentucky? You’re in luck. The Yankee Candle Company has released a Fan Candle Collegiate Collection, which features 23 college candles. Kentucky’s scent? “Clean Cotton.” Here’s the complete list of college scents:

Alabama: Black Cherry
Arkansas: Black Cherry
Auburn: Fruit Fusion
Boston College: Black Cherry
Florida: Home Sweet Home
Florida State: Black Cherry
Georgia: Black Coconut (gross)
Illinois: Spiced Pumpkin
Kentucky: Clean Cotton
LSU: Vineyard
Michigan State: Balsam & Cedar
Ole Miss: Macintosh
Missouri: Midsummer’s Night
North Carolina: Beach Walk
Notre Dame: Lucky Shamrock
Ohio State: Macintosh
Oklahoma: Black Cherry
South Carolina: Midsummer’s Night
Tennessee: Fruit Fusion
Texas: Spiced Pumpkin
Texas A&M: Black Cherry
Virginia: Home Sweet Home
Virginia Tech: Black Cherry
West Virginia: Home Sweet Home
Wisconsin: Macintosh

Most of these scents sound kind of gross to me, so it’s fortunate that Kentucky is the only team to get Clean Cotton, which Yankee Candle says smells like “sun-dried cotton combined with green notes, white flowers, and a hint of lemon.” Or new championship banners. That too.

You can buy UK’s candle here, or at any Yankee Candle store or apparently, Cracker Barrel.

    Louisville? Yankee Candle must have had difficulty recreating the scent of Crown Royal.

    I distinctly remember my room at UK smelling like stale beer, vomit, and carpet cleaner, with a slight hint of old cigarette smoke. Sometimes the trash can smelled like hot dogs. If you could make a candle smell like that, I would automatically feel tremendously hung over and start watching television for 10 hours straight. Boy I learned a lot!

    Nope. The Cawd’s candle would have to smell like Purina dog food …. just like the campus.

    UofL’s candle smells like musky Italian food with notes of regret.

    #9, Yeah but just like your school, your candle is cheap and won’t last long, just like your wins.

    I would think there wouldn’t be a market, even in Louisville, for ‘Black and Mild cigar butts’ scented candles. And UT gets Fruit Fusion? I would have banked on ‘Puke in a Pumpkin’ scent.

    Tennessee’s would be “fruit fusion.”

    Shouldn’t there be a picture of Cotton Nash on the candle?

    UofL would have a scent like many of those mentioned already but you gotta fancy it up and give it a name like “Urban Delight” or “Purina Passion” or the “The Falls of Bridgewater”.

    Just saw this at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Smells really good.

    17. Your an idiot. The smell of a candle makes us racist? That’s like saying a cotton uk t-shirt is racist. Get a life dumba$$

    Just a heads up, Candlebury candles are produced right here in central KY and you would probably support UK as much if not more. They are a smaller company but there are several stores around that sell them and you would be supporting KY jobs, always a plus. They also produce specialty UK candles, my friend that works there gave me one as a gift last year.

    Tennessee’s flavor sounds like a description of Cafe LMNOP on any weekend night.

    Appears browsing online a lot more than about three hours just lately, nevertheless My spouse and i hardly ever found any appealing content including your own house. It can be pretty value ample in my situation. In person, when virtually all website owners and also writers built exceptional content because you have, the world wide web is often considerably more helpful than before.
