The New York Times Candle

This Candle Smells Like Your Morning Paper


A fancy new flame designed to fill your home with the scent of the Gray Lady herself is now available for newspaper lovers and candle aficionados alike. The Times of New York candle ($65) was conceived by artist Tobias Wong as both a tribute to The New York Times and a commentary on the current state of print media. It's a woody but interesting-sounding scent, redolent of cedar, musk, spices, and "a powdery note and velvet nuance," which is supposed to smell like old-fashioned printer ink.

It's an interesting concept, and certainly as a piece of art it hits close to home for those of us who hold the printed word sacred, but do you think you'd be interested in giving it a smell?
