Can’t get enough of that new Macbook smell? Now you can get it in a candle

Now that fall is upon us, it’s time to break out the candles and bathe our homes in soothing scents like pumpkin pie, apple spice, and now — a different kind of Apple, that of the Mac variety. That’s right — it’s no longer the new car smell that consumers of the 21st century are pining after — we’d rather take a long whiff of a newly opened laptop.

Apple accessory maker TwelveSouth has not only captured that smell, but has found a way to allow Apple enthusiasts to enjoy it year-round. It’s all thanks to the New Mac Soy Candle, a 100-percent soy wax candle that boasts “hints of mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin, and sage” and other ingredients that apparently render it akin to a new product from the iEmpire.

Whether you’re a techie or a candle connoisseur, this New Mac Soy Candle will tickle your senses. It’s hand-poured in Charleston, South Carolina, and boasts a burn time of 45 to 55 hours. So really, it’ll last for just as long as the new electronic smell of your iPhone or iPad.

You can buy the candle now from TwelveSouth’s website for the price of $24, and enjoy free shipping throughout the U.S. And hey, if you can’t afford to get the new Mac smell from an actual new Mac (which will set you back $1,299), this may be the way to budget shop (though alas, you can’t expect your candle to send emails or Skype your friends).

But if a candle isn’t on your wishlist this holiday season, there are a number of other items that you might peruse on the TwelveSouth website. How does an iDrink Can Cooler Set, sound, or better yet, the O to Refresh water bottle? Believe us, no matter what your interest (as long as it’s Apple related), you’ll probably be able to find it. Our only question — Will Android candles be next?
