Choosing a candle that gives your home a cozy, signature scent can be tricky since we're all so sensitive to different aromas. I personally can't stand a sweet candle, but my best friend only wants her home to smell like cupcakes. A candle that's an all-around crowd pleaser? It might sound nearly impossible to find—but, of course, Joanna Gaines has the perfect one that keeps her home smelling fresh at all times.
Her pick is from the Magnolia Signature Candle Collection, and yes, it's what you'd get a whiff of should you find yourself at the Gaines house.
"It's what I burn all the time, so it smells like home to me," she tells CQ. It's the pleasant neutrality of the scent that makes the $28 candle a favorite, according to Joanna. "I find that both men and women love it, and it's just clean. It smells like clean laundry," she adds.
The reality of raising five kids, promoting a , and running a business means the Gaines house might not always be the tidiest, and the candle helps disguise that, too. "[It makes the] house smell clean! It's like, oh, we did it! Cleaned!" Joanna jokes.
