Recently, Kentucky Fried Chicken released a candle that smelled like, you guessed it, chicken. It sounds ridiculous, but it sold out in minutes! Given that waxy, olfactory success I decided to create a whole line of biblically themed scented candles.
Forget deep fried chicken or the smell of pickles wafting through your living room; why not light up these candles to get into the spiritually scented spirit:
From the “Escape from Egypt” Collection:
1. The Ten Plagues
A touch of gnat, a dash of frog, and a hint of blood, this blend of aromas is a must for any Old Testament study. Made with real locusts!
2. Pillars Pillar
Made with special patented technology, this pillar candle smells like smoke during the day and fire at night. It’s like two candles for the price of one!
3. Manna Madness
Think the “French Baguette” candle from Bath and Body Works smells like the real deal? Well you’ll be praying for bread to drop out of the sky after you light this candle up!
Now on clearance from the “Emmanuel” Collection:
4. Silent Night
Enjoy a calm evening by the glow of the Christmas tree while the smells of hay, sheep, and donkey fill the room. It’s like you’re swaddled right there in the manger with baby Jesus!
5. The Gift of the Magi
What does frankincense smell like? Wonder no more! This careful concoction of frankincense, gold, and myrrh is well worth the wait of up to 2 years in estimated arrival time from the date of purchase.
Just in time for Lent, the “Miracles of Jesus” limited edition collection:
6. Five Thousand
Upon first glance, you would never think this small votive candle is capable of burning for up to an unprecedented amount of 5,000 hours. But once you waft the succulent scents of a couple fish and a few loaves of bread, your doubts will vanish.
7. Party’s not Over
Don’t think all is lost when you see this clear candle. While it may appear to be the color of water, once lit it changes to a deep red hue and soon you’ll smell the sweet scent of fermented grapes. (WARNING: Please do not ingest.)
Those are my 7 candle ideas. I chose 7 for the list because, duh, holiest number ever.
But if you were going to design your own Biblically themed candle, what would you create?
