Print-scented Candles for eReader Users
For people who prefer the convenience of eReaders but miss the aesthetic qualities of print, a new product will help bridge the gap. Called the Times of New York, a candle aims to emulate the smell of black ink on newsprint. The candle's product page describes it as "newsy, with hints of guaiacwood, cedar, musk, and spice."
The idea of the candle came from designer-artist Tobias Wong, who passed away in 2010. Aware of the growing scent movement in the art world, Wong envisioned a way of replicating the smells of The New York Times, a publication he loved and had a long relationship with. The candle was not actualized within Wong's lifetime.
Those who wish to get a piece of this novelty would have to pay a steep price: the candle has a limited production of 1,000 pieces and sells for US$65.
The candle can be purchased here.
