Hooray? A candle that smells like Chinese takeout

But it’ll cost you a bit of a fortune.

Online store Cool Material is selling a scented candle that’ll remind you of all those late-nighters you pulled at work or those times you came home drunk and found nothing to eat.

The item, called the Takeout Candle, burns for 80 hours and captures the essence of Chinese takeout, with subtle notes of soy, lemongrass, and ginger.

“While ordering takeout every day is tempting, we think we’ve developed a more financially viable way to enjoy that scent,” the product’s description reads. “You could leave that carton of lo mein out for days on end, but we think this is a better idea.”

Unfortunately, the 16-ounce candle is inedible, so don’t even think of taking a bite out of it.

You can get the Takeout Candle here for US$25 (AUS$35).
