Feature Friday: Fandlemonium Candles for Geeks

You guys, I became embarrassingly giddy when I stumbled upon this site.  Why?  Because you can now buy your favorite fictional characters' scents.  These candles, or fandles as the company calls them, allow you to smell scents based on book characters.  Here are some of my favorites:

Lemon Drops & Phoenix Ashes in Dumbledore's candle.

Draco's is made of Wintergreen and the Dungeon Common Rooms


Harry: Pumpkin Juice, Butterbeer, and Broomsticks

Hermione: New Parchment, Fresh Cut Grass, & Spearmint Toothpaste

And if Potter candles weren't enough, there are others too:
Professor Moriarty: Spicy Apple Cinnamon

Sherlock Holmes: Tobacco, Clean Clothes, & Old Books

Doctor Who: Bananas with a hint of danger

It doesn't say what's in the death star candle... should we be worried?

And while we're on the subject of candles, check out this Etsy shop's literary candle collection:
Winterfell from Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series
The Shire from Tolkein's Lord of the Rings trilogy
Dumbledore's Office from Rowling's Harry Potter series
Cliffs of Insanity from Goldman's The Princess Bride

Conclusion: People are awesome.

    1. I totally agree! That Dumbledore's office candle would make the perfect teacher's gift.
