“Elf” is a classic Christmas movie that continues to delight audiences 16 years after its 2003 premiere, in part because it’s endlessly quotable. If you’ve ever called someone an angry elf or claimed your four main food groups are candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup, you know what we’re talking about.
What does this 9-ounce scented candle smell like? All of Buddy’s favorite seasonal scents, of course, including “swirly twirly gum drops, the world’s best cup of coffee, Francisco, syrup, a whole roll of Tollhouse cookie dough, and then to finish, we’ll snuggle.” In short, it smells like a Christmas sugar cookie, the description says.
The soy wax-based candle burns for 50 hours, so that’s plenty of time to last you the entire holiday season. This cheeky candle would make the perfect Christmas gift for any “Elf” fan. You can get free shipping on it with a $35 purchase from the maker, iheartpopcandles.
To round out your order, you can choose from plenty of other fun movie and TV-themed scented candles, all priced at $20. The candles are biodegradable and water-soluble, which makes spills easier to clean. They’re handmade and come ready to go in a gift box.
To keep the Christmas theme going, grab a Major Award scented candle, a nod to “A Christmas Story” that smells like “fra-gee-lay, indescribably beautiful and the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window.” (The actual scent is no less mysterious: The description just says “Deck the Halls.”)
For a little throwback nostalgia, grab “The Breakfast Club” scented candle, which smells like the movie’s iconic characters, “a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal” — in other words, it smells like yummy pancakes.
“Grey’s Anatomy” fans will love the McDreamy scented candle, which promises to fill your home with the scent of “a fresh Seattle breeze off the ferry boat on a beautiful day to save lives.” (The scent is “salt and sea,” according to the seller.)
So, who needs some new candle scents around the house?
