The Cult of Apple Has Officially Lost Its Mind

There are some Apple fans who have a borderline unhealthy obsession with its products.

Then there are those who, apparently, get off on that sweet, sweet aroma of a shiny, sexy, freshly-opened Mac. Fear not, cash-strapped computer sniffers, there’s now a candle that will get you that high without having to shell out for a new computer.

I wish I was joking.

According to the product listing, the TwelveSouth “New Mac” candle is 100% soy wax and has scents of “mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin, and sage.” I was unaware that Foxconn’s facilities smelled like that. Or Apple stores for that matter.


If you want to feel even worse about the state of humanity, this $24 candle has already sold out.

TwelveSouth makes some excellent accessories for Apple products—I actually love their stuff—but this is going too far. If you buy this candle you should feel bad.


I would, however, love it if someone made me a candle that smells like the disappointment of Kate Spade still not making a wallet case for the iPhone 7 Plus.
