If Grand Junction got its own scented candle what would it smell like? Is there one smell that enough people could agree on? We'll never find out if we don't ask...

What Would Your Hometown Candle Smell Like?
In my childhood, we spent a lot of time in Central Illinois. On most days, the A. E. Staley Manufacturing Company in Decatur is the only thing you will smell. NASTY! That candle would be easy to make but nobody would want it. On the other hand, I once lived near Hershey, Pennsylvania and the whole town actually smells like chocolate. I'd much rather have that candle. What would your hometown smell like?
