This Joe Exotic-scented candle captures the chaos of 2020

The layered candle also features notes of banana bread, hand sanitiser, and DIY-inspired woody musks

At this point, it’s extremely cliché to talk about how chaotic 2020 has been. The good news though? It’s almost over. 

In case you wanted to commemorate it – why the hell you would is your business – retailer Flaming Crap has created a 2020-scented candle and the featured notes can only be described as interesting. 

The layered candle takes you on a journey that begins with banana bread (yum!), before moving on to woody DIY musks (OK...), hand sanitiser (uh...), and cologne inspired by Tiger King’s Joe Exotic (but, why?!). 

“Many people have mixed feelings about this year, it’s been tough on many levels, but others valued their time in lockdown,” explains Oliver Burr, co-founder of Flaming Crap. “Our candle is reminiscent and a reminder of some of this year’s most prominent themes, and a completely unique gift this festive period.  A way to remark this year in a fun way!”

While the chaos might be too much to endure, on a more positive note, the candle is made using vegan wax as well as having sustainable packaging too. It will sit along other classic Flaming Crap candles, such as ‘Fuck Boris’ and ‘You Fucking Tory’. 

If you’re interested in embarking on the unique nasal experience, you can pre-order a 2020 candle now. If not, our spooky season candle guide will give you some less chaotic options.
