The Cult of Apple Has Officially Lost its Mind

By Christina Warren on at

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”.

If you want to feel even worse about the state of humanity, this $24 (£18.82) 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. [TwelveSouth h/t 9to5Mac]
