New Mac scented candle for those who have never smelled a newly opened Apple product

Some people take their love of tech a bit too far. And for those people, there is no shortage of businesses trying to exploit that love for profit. The latest bit of madness in that vein is a candle that claims to smell like a newly opened Mac, but we seriously question if the makers of that candle have ever smelled an Apple product before.

The candle is said to be 100% hand-poured soy wax, which sounds like a candle as far as we know. It is named "New Mac" and claims to smell like a newly opened Apple product, but the strange part is that it lists its scent notes as: mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin and sage. Now, we'll admit that sounds fruity and nice, but nothing there sounds like it would smell like a newly opened device made of glass and metal. Heck, it doesn't even have any apple smells in there just to cover that base. 

Maybe we're just not in love with Apple enough? Maybe some people do smell mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin and sage when they open a new Apple device. It seems very unlikely though. However, we can't review the candle because it has already sold out. It may not smell like an Apple product, but the company certainly knows marketing like Apple.
