A novelty company in England is marketing a candle that compiles the "top smells" of 2021.
The manufacturer, named Flaming Crap, describes the 2021 Scent Candle as having “four unusually fragrant layers” of scents that are inspired by events and trends of the year.
Berries and cream, a nod to one of 2021’s viral TIkTok trends (itself inspired by a Starburst commercial from 2007)
Honeycomb, an aroma designed to invoke memories of Netflix’s hit show “Squid Game” — particularly the scene in which contestants are provided with honeycomb-like candy
Fantasy, a celebrity fragrance released by Britney Spears in 2005,in honor of 2021’s #FreeBritney movement
And the “sterile,” “clinical” smell of vaccines, to mark the second year of the global COVID-19 pandemic
The company released a similar candle last year with pandemic related smells (like banana bread and hand sanitizer) and another inspired by “Tiger King” star Joe Exotic which was described as "budget aftershave".
