Better Than Pumpkin: Candle Smells Like Butter-Basted Turkey and Stuffing


That magical day of the year – when your sole  purpose is to wake up and eat an obscene amount of home-cooked food loaded with butter and love, and perhaps ponder your thankfulness for a minute or two amidst the food bingefest. Yes, I am talking about Thanksgiving.

Unfortunately (or fortunately if you’re the one waking up at 5 am to put the turkey in the oven), Thanksgiving only comes around once a year. Luckily, the latest offering by candle company Yankee Candle may quell your Thanksgiving blues by capturing all the smells and delights of Thanksgiving into a candle. Described as “plump, butter-basted turkey and savory stuffing filled with celery, carrots and herbs,” the candle will hold you over until you can once again sink your teeth in roasted turkey and mashed potatoes.

Love the idea or hate the idea, at least there are now autumnal alternatives to things that smell like pumpkins or brown sugar. Now, if there were a way to bottle all the courses served in a Thanksgiving feast into a single candle such that it emanated the scents of the different courses at different times, that would be genius.

Wake Up Smelling Like Toast Perfume

Do you ever wish you could capture the mouthwatering aroma of fresh toasted bread? Well, with Eau de Toast you too can smell like you’ve just popped out of the toaster. Crafted by The Federation of Bakers (of course!) this perfume debuted at London’s Fashion Week. Free samples of the toasty body spray were available to residents of the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Channel Islands aged 18 years or over, but we hear they’ve all been snatched up.

According to the fragrance’s site, the scent was designed to “challenge the fashion for bread-free diets. With just 80 calories per slice, bread provides (at least) 10% of the adult daily intake of protein, fibre, calcium, iron, copper, zinc and manganese.” However consuming the spray is absolutely not the same thing. Just a friendly FYI.


We’re not sure if this smells like toasted bread or if it’s a bit fancier and has that warm buttery goodness all up in there. Maybe that’s the next fragrance in the line to debut, Eau de Buttered Toast.
