If you’ve ever wanted to know what the sands of Tatooine, the forests of Endor, and the cold, dark side-filled chambers of the Death Star smell like, you’re in luck. Homesick is launching a new collection of candles inspired by Star Wars.
The trio of candles – and one adorable Grogu air freshener – launches on May the 4th. Here’s a look at the new collection of scents, according to a press release from Homesick:
- Tatooine: “Invigorating notes of Juniper and desert shrub rise from cooling canyons amidst the endless dunes. Imagine basking in the binary sunset as Luke Skywalker speeds across dusky plains in his trusty Landspeeder.”
- Death Star: “Imagine bolts of smoked amber and forged steel rise from clashing lightsabers, filling vast chambers of cold cement with electric notes. Leather and black myrrh tempt you to the dark side.”
- Endor: “Wild fern and pine needles silently fill the dense woodland as floral accents rise from the forest floor. Imagine Ewoks foraging between mossy trees met with the rush of passing speeder bikes.”
- Grogu car air freshener: “Imagine Grogu’s meditative presence as he reaches out with the Force. Notes of gardenia fill the air, with touches of lavender and rosemary.”
Each candle in the collection comes in a box covered in art of iconic scenes from the respective locales, like Luke and Darth Vader’s lightsaber duel on the Death Star and the binary sunset on Tatooine. And once the candle burns, the melting wax reveals more artwork on the other side of the label.
“When we started to think about how to approach the collection, we tapped into our roots creating fragrances based on the places people truly love and long for. With Tatooine, Endor, and the Death Star, we’ve created a collection that not only represents some of the most iconic locations and moments in the Star Wars galaxy, but in movie history,” said Lauren Lamagna, the general manager at Homesick.
The Star Wars | Homesick candles are $44 each, and the Grogu car air freshener is $12. Customization is also available on the candles for an additional $15. The collection will be available at homesick.com, where you can sign up for updates and early access to the candles.
Homesick has been a popular line of candles and other scent products since 2016, especially for its collection of location-themed candles. There are candles themed after all 50 states as well as more than a dozen different cities and countries.
And with May the 4th – a.k.a. Star Wars Day – coming in less than two weeks, brands are, of course, coming up with new stuff to tempt fans.
Vera Bradley announced last week a new collection of colorful patterns featuring Star Wars characters and locales. The Rebel insignia and the Death Star never looked so pretty.
