Questionable: This 'New Mac' Scented Candle

October 4, 2016


This is the New Mac scented hand-poured candle (personally I prefer my candles machine-poured to cut down on labor costs) available from Apple accessory company Twelve South. Each $24 soy candle contains "scents of mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin and sage." Now I can't remember the last time I huffed a new MacBook, but it definitely didn't smell like that. At least new car scent air fresheners actually capture the essence of a new car, this just doesn't make any sense. This thing is New Mac scented by name only, and names don't make things smell like things. To quote Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." I have no idea what that means I just wanted to sound cultured. Did you know the littlest fork at a formal dinner setting is for flicking food at your siblings? I'm studying to be a prince.

Thanks to Jody, who wants a candle that smells like having sex with a robot. You're sick. I just want one that smells like gasoline.
