Dunkin' And Homesick Release Limited-Edition Candle Collection
by Rudy Sanchez on 11/26/2019 | 2 Minute Read
Dunkin' has teamed up with the scent experts at Homesick to create a pleasant and familiar olfactory coffee and doughnut experience in wax form because nothing quite triggers the comforting warmth of nostalgia like smell.
The candle set includes three Dunkin Donuts favorites, coffee and cream Original Blend, Peppermint Mocha, and Old Fashioned doughnut. The candles are hand-poured in the coffee and doughnut chain’s native state of Massachusetts and packaged in the same colorful, festive packaging adorning their holiday cups, as well as some Simpsons-esque donuts and their wordmark.
The collaboration included both Dunkin’s culinary team and Homesick researchers and chemists. The teams worked closely together to ensure that the candles’ scents would not only be recognizable to fans but bring about those tingly feelings of nostalgia and happiness.
The task to create the smells of some of Dunkin’s popular menu items started in the tastiest of ways, with Homesick chemists picking up a box of old fashioneds and cups of coffee at their local Dunkin'. Peppermint mocha’s return was still a secret, so DD and Homesick had to work on recreating the seasonal favorite without spoiling the surprise for fans.
The limited collection of candles are available at Homesick.com/Dunkin while supplies last.
