Yes, you read that right; Sonic Scented Candles are now officially for sale on the Sega Website, and to be honest… we’re pretty excited.
Let’s get one thing straight right away… candles are cool. I love a good candle, especially one with an inspirational gaming message that captures the smell of Sonic’s sweaty socks…
Ok, before we get too far into this article, these candle’s don’t actually smell like woodland creatures.
Trust me, they’re guaranteed to make any grotty games cave smell 1000-times better and appealing to outsiders.
Or, you could just stick one on your coffee table and light it while watching a movie; it’s your choice.
Noses at the ready; let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Sonic Scented Candles Are Here, But What Do Hedgehogs Smell Like?
Here’s the full range, folks, Sonic scented candles for the man in blue himself as well as Tails and Amy.
Each candle represents a different character and also a zone from the iconic gaming series.
Let’s take Sonic first. With a mantra of ‘Break the limits, gotta go fast’, this little beauty depicts a scene of sunlight piercing the palm trees in the Green Hill Zone, the level that started it all off for our favourite hedgehog.
In normal speech, that means this candle smells of lemongrass, citrus, freshly mown grass, sage, moss, and crisp green leaves.
Ever the optimist, Tails’ mantra of ‘you can do this’ is one that we all need to see at some point through the week.
This is also a good one for those of you stuck at work that wish they could be racing through the sights of Seaside Hill, bringing the smell of the ocean and the vibes of the beach to you.
It’s amazing how many things you can fit inside a candle; this one paints a picture of golden sands and glittering waves through the scents of fresh ocean air, citrus, pink sea salt, and musk… which could well be Miles Prower’s natural odour.
And last, but by no means least, is Amy Rose, whose ‘heart is never wrong’, a sentiment that I think we can all agree with.
If you’re a fan of planet Wisp and mediating under the trees, then the smells of rose, magnolia, cherry blossom, and sandalwood will fill your games room with tranquil vibes for finally defeating that boss you can’t tackle.
And when you’re done, you can give yourself a well done sticker to celebrate!
What Are These Candles Made From?
Each of these Candier Sonic scented candles is made from 100% natural soy wax and added essential oils. There’s nothing funky or harmful to be found in them anywhere, with no carcinogens or parabens in sight.
And the best bit is that a portion of each sale goes to the Friendship Bridge charity, helping to empower women worldwide!
