Now Every Room In Your House Can Smell Like Steam-Grilled Meat And Onions

french fry air freshener optionalToday's sign that maybe it's time to move on from the whole "Making Things That Smell Like Other Things" industry, because we have run out of nose-pleasing scents: the White Castle scented candle, which is shaped like the mini-burger-chain's paper wrappers and which when burned emits "the steam-grilled-on-a-bed-of-onions scent of America's first fast-food hamburger." Also, if you buy five of the $10-a-pop wax creations? You get a free air freshener. If you're the type of person who loves burgers, or just hates the idea of people lingering around your homestead for more than five minutes, this home-scent solution is perfect!

This makes no sense at all. Related: driving through South Philly with your windows down achieves the same olfactory effect.

Most people leave my home immediately after I invite them to sniff my meat.

So the air freshener is to cover the smell of the burger candles?

This is interesting, since White Castles actually smell like BO until you cram one in your mouff. It's not unlike the whole "elements of fine perfume may or may not have been derived from the anal glands of a Skunk" phenomenon!

I was friends with a couple in college that had a problematic relationship with the Castle; He (being a Chicago native) was addicted to them, and She claimed she could tell if he had eaten them that day by the smell of his skin- and the smell was rotten. Her policy was "if you eat that shit, you're sleeping on the couch."

Thanks! Now I know what the perfect low-cost ironic holiday gift will be when truckloads of this thing are dumped at Jack's 99 Cent Store, Dollar Bills and the like.
