Limited-Edition New York Times Newsprint Scented Candle


From refinery29: "If you've kept around old issues of The New York Times because you kind of get off on the smell, don't worry, you're not (that) weird. A fellow newspaper addict — the late designer-artist Tobias Wong — created The Times Of New York candle, a concept that's equal parts a tribute to the Grey Lady and a commentary on the fate of printed media. The scent is, in a word, newsy, with hints of guaiacwood, cedar, musk and spice, with 'a powdery note and velvet nuance,' meant to mimic the aroma of black ink on newsprint. Realized by Josée Lepage, the Creative Director of Bondtoo, made in a limited-edition run of 1,000."
