Shane Co. compiled a list of each state's most popular candle scents. The website states, "To answer these burning questions, we first put together a list of 24 of the most popular candle scents, from pumpkin spice and lavender to cotton and tobacco. Next, we looked at the Google search data from November 2020 to November 2021 for each scent by state and took most searched to mean most popular."
According to the study, the most popular candle scent in Texas is gardenia. Gardenia was also the favorite of New York. Texas' neighbors love pumpkin, blue volcano, and rose scents.
Other popular scents that made the list of the most popular include citrus, coconut, lavender, lemon, peppermint, balsam, cookie, cranberry, tobacco, cedar, cotton, and mahogany teakwood.
