A small company in the Chicago suburbs is offering some respite from the traditional scented candle odors of vanilla, ginger and lavender. Have some house guests you need to oust or just truly enjoy odd smells? Then look no further than the Stinky Candle Company for all your scented candle needs.
Now fresh fish isn’t supposed to smell like anything except the ocean. I am thinking they are going for more of a washed up on the beach rotting feel here but I can’t tell you firsthand because the fish candle is so popular it’s on back order.
The next grossest one has to be, Rest Stop (Urine).
The website says, “Join with us as we honor one of the most distinctive and recognizable scents on earth. It’s time to celebrate the body’s ability to relieve itself. As most of us will both begin and end our lives with no bladder control, consequently accompanied by this smell, we might as well get used to it.”
Not all of the scents are repulsive, but more appealing to the familiar.
No.2 Pencil. Just the name evokes the smell in my head, but thinking back in time, I was the kid who got home from school every day with industrial black marker under my nose. There’s a smell they should harness.
Gasoline is a good scent but only for a second when you get that little whiff at the pump. Dripping some on your shoes when replacing the pump makes the scent painfully inescapable so I wouldn’t want it burning in my house.
And from my own experiences, I would like to suggest the following candles for future stinky consideration…
- Dead Mouse in the Wall
- Poopy Diaper
- 7 Year-Old Farting in Your Face
- Along that same theme, the statement I have been faced with on more than one occasion, Mommy, My Hand Smells Like Butt
- Cat Breath
- The Smell of Dinner Cooking That No One But Me Will Eat.
- Hockey Bag
- Sweaty Kid Head. I do love that smell – warm and salty
- And lastly, a scent that makes me curious but one which I never want to experience, Clown Car. It’s just gotta stink.
What scents do you think they are missing?
