You Can Now Buy A Candle That Smells Like A "New Mac"

Have you ever wanted your home to waft with the sleek, metallic fragrance of a new Apple Mac computer? Have you ever craved the scent of a £1,000 amalgamation of steel, glass and millenial desires to fill your (inevitably) modern and minimalist apartment?

What does a "New Mac" smell like? Well, according to Twelve South, the minds behind this aromatic concoction, a new Mac smells like mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin and sage, which all sounds very nice, but come on, a factory-assembled computing device does not smell of basil, or lavender and it definitely doesn't smell of peach, does it?

Despite our reservations, they're obviously doing something right, because the candle is currently sold out. Thankfully you can sign up for a restock notification right here.

We've all got bills to pay, right?
