You can now get a Dunkin' Donuts coffee-scented candle
We all know a caffeine addict who just loves the smell of roasted beans; maybe you are that person yourself, and the scent of a good brew and some sweet pastry is olfactory heaven for you.
If that's the case then I have a product that's just right for you: Dunkin Donuts is collaborating with the home-fragrance company Homesick to launch a range of ingenious coffee-scented candles, to make your pad smell just like a café.
Scents include the Dunkin Donuts Original Blend, their Peppermint Mocha, and their Old Fashioned; each made from a natural coconut wax blend and produced in limited quantities, retailing for approximately $30.
To come up with the scented candles, Homesick researchers and chemists spent plenty of time in a nearby store to get a feel for the chain's signature aroma.
According to a blog post from Canton, Massachusetts-based Dunkin', the peppermint mocha flavor was shipped to Homesick's fragrance development team in New Jersey, since it was still being developed at the time.
Here's a heartwarming video of a Dunkin Donuts employee dancing with a customer:
Commenting on the new invention, a spokesperson for the coffee-and-donut chain allegedly told CBS News that: "It was crucial to capture a balance of fragrance notes that Dunkin' fans everywhere would recognize and love, so our culinary team here at Dunkin' worked closely with Homesick's experts to pick the best matches."
Meanwhile, co-founder of Homesick parent company Win Brands Group Taylor Sicard stated: "As huge fans ourselves, the Homesick team was eager and honored to take on the challenge of bringing that cherished Dunkin' feeling to people in a completely new and exciting way that lets them enjoy Dunkin' like never before."
