I’m a huge candle guy. It’s my guilty pleasure when I’m out at a store like Target or Bed, Bath, & Beyond. Candles are a staple in every room of my apartment and I change them as seasons come and go or when I need to set a particular mood.
Now, I’m not one hundred percent sure what kind of vibe I’d be trying to give off if I lit a candle that smells like a Macbook fresh out of the box, but I’m confident I can find a place for it on my candle roster. Hand-poured? Check. Soy? Yup. Pretentious? Absolutely. This thing passes my candle checklist with flying colors.
Per The Independent:
An Apple accessories company, Twelve South, has created a candle that captures the specific scent of a newly-opened Apple product. It sold for $24 and offered free shipping inside the US. The candles are “hand poured” in Charleston, South Carolina, where Twelve South is based, and are made entirely out of soy wax.
“The New Mac Soy Candle” lasts for up to 55 hours, however, it looks like we’re going to have to wait for a new shipment because Twelve South sold out after two hours of being on sale. What does a new Apple product smell like, you ask? I’d say it’s something like a very organic plastic, but that wouldn’t be correct. You only know that smell if you’re an Apple user. Suffice it to say it does smell good opening up a new product from Apple. And as much as I hate to admit this, I’ve bought candles for way more than twenty-four dollars. A $24 dollar candle from Jo Malone is basically unheard of so this thing is actually a steal. Twelve South said they literally bottled the scent that one smells upon opening a Macbook from its box, so I’ve got to believe them. I’ll be on the lookout for announcements on a re-stock. .
