Unique Candle Scents — New York Times Candle by Tobias Wong

Love It or Hate It? A Newspaper-Scented Candle


The good people at Bondtoo in NYC have released The Times of New York Candle ($65). Just as the name implies, the candle smells like — you guessed it — a freshly printed copy of the iconic paper. Late designer Tobias Wong had originally conceptualized the scent, but friends recently paid homage to him with a limited release of these candles.

I can't decide. I love the familiar scent of the Sunday Styles section against the backdrop of my morning coffee and scrambled eggs, but is an entire candle over the top?

I'm definitely a burner, but I can't imagine smelling paper all day.

Newspaper scent is not my cup of tea, but I'm a fan of other unconventional candle scents. I have campfire scented candles in my bedroom.

For $65, I would say it's over the top. But I love the idea, regardless!

Love it or hate it, this concept is pretty awesome and gave me my first chuckle of the morning.
