Two words: absolutely mental

Is there such a thing as wrong and right?

Is there such a thing as a candle that smells like a fresh, newly opened MacBook?

Yes. There is, apparently. In which case, wrong and right do exist. And we trust you’ll choose correctly.

We offer no link to buy this … thing. No mention of its swindling maker. Let’s all just take a moment to process.

There now exists a $24 candle that smells like Apple packaging. At the opposite pole is an actual $1,299 MacBook, which, by all means, is a totally logical purchase.

But guess what a new MacBook doesn’t smell like? The description of this very candle: mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin and sage. What in the actual f*ck is for sale here? Apparently, a lot. Because the candles are sold out.

So if you want to know what disillusionment smells like, looks like you’ll have to wait for the next batch.
