Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Rejected Yankee Candle Scents

This idea occurred to me the other day when I was writing Do You smell Like a SociopathYankee Candle has literally 55 different scents that you can buy candles in. They have scents like My Serenity, and Kilimanjaro Stars. Really? How the hell does Yankee Candle know what My Serenity smells like? You know what My serenity smells like? It smells like bourbon and beef jerky. Nobody wants that candle! Kilimanjaro Stars? How can you smell stars? Space is a vacuum. In space nobody can smell you scream. That was a movie tag line wasn’t it? Any who, without further adieu, here are ten scents that didn’t quite make the cut at Yankee Candle:











First off, I’d like to thank the people of the internet. I was going to make up my own list, but when I Googled the subject there were already great ideas with pictures. Secondly, trust me, you should thank me for not choosing to include many of the grosser ideas that people made pictures for. Thirdly, Yankee Candle Company please don’t sue #ThePhilFactor. I didn’t make these up. I’m just the messenger. Have a great Tuesday everyone! ~Phil

  1. These are hysterical. I’m so sick of winter right now since Maine still has snow cover I’d buy one with the scent of mud. Hmmmmmm!

  2. I don’t think I have ever smelt a yankee candle. Are they pricey? Maybe people are paying for the marketing of strange exciting names(?)

    I am trying to imagine what my serenity, and Kilimanjaro stars smell like and trying not to imagine the others!! Although Kilimanjaro is surrounded by nature reserves with Lions, and Lion-poop under the stars doesn’t have quite the same ring to it…

  3. Funny post! Thanks for the chuckle!

  4. I’m so glad I found your blog.

  6. I got suckered into buying 2 candles this weekend too! Young woman selling them door to door for some fundraiser! 😀

  7. Highway Diaper. I can’t. I just can’t. LOL!

  8. I’m not a scented candle kind of person so in my opinion they all smell like air pollution. Funny post 😀

  9. You’re such a lovable kook!

  10. Thank you Phil you made my day
    Though I think you forgot ashtray

  11. Terrific, Phil. I think beach diaper might not make the cut either.

  12. Okay, but now I kind of want the facebook stalking candle. You know, for when I’m facebook stalking. Does it smell like the satisfaction you get when you realize exes got fat or had ugly babies? Or more like the shame and regret of looking up people who probably left you because they sensed that you’d still be thinking about them ten years after they forgot your name?

    Because if it’s that second one, I’d only buy it if it was on sale.

  13. Haha! Shame…wonder what that smells like??
