Can't afford an Apple Mac? Buy the smell instead

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.

Out of stock at the moment. Unconfirmed reports suggest that Android users have been buying them up.

Android users wouldn't buy them!!! They have more sense than to pay $24 for a candle!!
There's only a certain type of person that buys overpriced tat, & they probably already have that new Mac smell, stick an apple logo on it & they'll buy these as well

Android users have been buying them all.

Then selling them at a 400% mark up to Apple users.

I wax ?

I bought one but it won't light with a standard lighter or matches, had to buy special Apple matches at £10 a box. I believe the matches intended for earlier versions of the iCandle won't work either.

Yep and there's a power button underneath wax on/wax off...
