New York Times Scented Candle Smells Like Newsprint
Store sells the late Tobias Wong's designs infused with non-traditional scents to create surprising, ambient experiences.
The ubiquity of tablets these days has made the printed newspaper a thing of the past. However, a new project allows readers to enjoy the scent of a newspaper without having to actually buy one.
The candle, designed by the late Tobias Wong, generates the distinct smell of newsprint by combining “hints of guaiacwood, cedar, musk, spice, with a powdery note and velvet nuance.” As a creative figure, Wong was recognized for his witty design, mastery of stunts, and vivid conceptual prowess. This is a great example of his refined and unique sense of humor.
