Love the smell of fresh newsprint? Well, you can stop trying to come up with creative ways to sneak into the New York Times newsroom to get your fix – just fork over $65 for this limited edition promotional candle designed by artist Tobias Wong.
The Times of New York candle was one of the last creative projects Wong conceptualized before his death in 2010, and has been made a posthumous reality in a limited run of 1,000. This promotional candle has not been officially endorsed by the New York Times and isn’t available in its gift shop, but reliable sources have confirmed that its scent – a combination of cedar, musk, spice, guaiacwood, and a “powdery note and velvet nuance” does indeed smell like a hot-off-the-press edition of the paper.
After Wong’s death last year, friends and collaborators worked together to realize this extraordinary candle, which is available for purchase online at Bondtoo.com as well as at New York boutique Project No. 8.
If the smell of newsprint doesn’t really do it for you, though, you might look for a more traditional scented candle on our website.
