For many Apple fans, the only thing better than using your freshly unboxed Mac is taking a moment to take in that sweet, sweet new computer smell.
Now that sensation can be achieved via a new candle that purports to deliver that new Mac smell, without the hefty, new Mac hardware price tag.
Charleston, South Carolina-based Twelve South, which specializes in Apple accessories, is offering what it calls the New Mac Candle, which, for just $24, wraps you in the ol’ factory goodness of Steve Jobs’ legacy.
How they achieved that unique smell is unclear, but the company’s website states that the candle’s scent includes notes of “mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin and sage.”
No factory plastic scents are mentioned, so it’s unclear how such sweet sounding scents can add up to the smell of a new Mac, but the idea alone is amazing.
Unfortunately, just one day after the product went on sale, the “hand-poured soy candle” has already sold out.
But fear not, the company promises a restocking announcement later this month, at which point even more Apple fans can sample the artisanal fragrance of Cupertino, California’s finest.
