New Mac candle smell

If you love the smell of unboxing a new Mac gizmo but can't afford to do it for hours at a time, a US firm has just the thing for you.

Apple accessory maker Twelve South is now selling a candle that purports to smell exactly like a new Mac coming out of the box – albeit one that has also been scented with the essences of Mint, Peach, Basil, Lavender, Mandarin and Sage. The candle is "hand poured in Charleston, SC" and will burn for 45-55 hours.

All this for the price of $24 – for a candle. Then again, Apple fans are used to paying over the odds for stuff, so the firm should do well. ®
