With over 40 thoughtfully designed candle scents so far (you know we’re cooking up even more creative and nostalgic scent combinations that you’ll hear about soon) it’s always a thrill to look at the numbers and see which candles are the crowd favorites.
If you’ve ever picked up and smelled one of our Laurel Mercantile Co candles before, then you know that these are not your run-of-the-mill candles. They are special. And we are so proud to make them right here in the U.S.A – some candles are even poured and packaged right here in Laurel, MS!
We’ve pulled the data and here are the top 10 candles that we can barely keep on the shelves this year:
Scent Notes: Earl grey + lemon
Fun Fact - This is Erin’s all time favorite LMCo’s scent!
Scent Notes: Spanish Moss + Salty Air
Scent Notes: Summer Sorbet
This candle was inspired by Mallorie’s home town in South Louisiana where they grow the sweetest and most delicious strawberries in the world.
Scent Notes: Roses + four o'clocks
Erin spent 2 years fine-tuning this scent to perfectly represent summers in her grandmother’s garden.
Scent Notes: Meyer lemon + whipped cream
This particular pie, flavor, and scent was inspired by Erin’s grandmother.
Scent Notes: Sweet tea + garden mint
Erin says, “This candle smells like the cool breezes that make hot days bearable: a mint julep on the front porch."
Scent Notes: Summer sun + citrus blossoms
This scent was designed to smell like summer all year long!
Scent Notes: Black pepper + mandarin
Fun Fact - This scent was inspired by Ben’s cologne that’s only worn on special occasions and date nights with Erin!
Scent Notes: Lemon zest + vanilla
This scent was first introduced in HGTV’s Home Town Season 6 - The Farlin House, and it immediately became a fan favorite!
Scent Notes: Sweet olive blossom
This is the first candle we ever made - the one that started it all. Fun Fact - Erin overnighted a piece of the sweet olive blossom to the candlemakers to be sure that they got the scent perfectly right!
