Space Candle


What does space smell like?

Not a whole lot of people could tell you.

Here's your big chance.

From websites:


Sadly, we don't expect to ever visit outer space.

For us, the final frontier will most likely remain unexplored.

But that doesn't mean it hasn’t fascinated us endlessly.

We've pored over books and watched countless documentaries about what exists beyond the Kármán line, and we've come away fascinated by a great number of things.

One of those things is a common theme mentioned by astronauts returning to Earth: the smell.

Yes, space has a smell.

When an astronaut returns from a space walk and removes their helmet, they're hit with a distinct scent.

We've read many descriptions and decided that since we can't go to space, let's bring a little bit of space to us.

This candle is designed to smell like outer space.

We took the descriptions those astronauts shared in various publications and crafted a 100% soy wax candle out of them.

This is space in a can.

No space suit required.

Features and Details:

• Space-scented candle

• 80+ hour burn time

• 100% soy wax

• Made in U.S.A.

• 16 oz.

Space smells like an open sewer. What do you expect? The ISS has been continuously occupied for years and years, and the air has not been changed in all that time.
