Any gadget you buy from Apple is going to qualify as a splurge. On the other hand, you can recreate that brand-new Apple Mac experience for a mere $24. The secret is the power of smell, which Twelve South is harnessing with their New Mac Candle. The sleek black jar contains hand-poured soy wax scented with mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin, and sage. It also holds the promise of a cool new computer — if you keep your eyes closed, that is.
Allure reports that the combination of notes — which sounds soapy, slightly sweet, and clean — somehow does an okay job of mimicking the tech company’s laptops, cardboard packaging and all. The candle is currently out of stock on the company’s website, but they’re promising more later in the month. The brand lists the burn time as 45-55 hours, which is significantly shorter than a MacBook Pro’s life span, but long enough for you to commit that new laptop smell to memory. Plus, if you don’t light it, it will actually last forever! Now there’s something even your fanciest gadgets can’t promise.http://www.teenvogue.com/story/apple-macbook-laptop-candle-twelve-south
