The Rekindle Candle Concept Makes A New One From The Melted Remains Of The Old One

this-candle-makes-a-new-candle-from-its-melted-wax-thumb

The Rekindle Candle is a cool concept that uses the melted wax drippings from your current candle to make an entirely new one. It does this by capturing the drippings as they’re formed and shaping them into a candle. A wick is inserted in the middle, and the result is a fully functional paraffin light. Granted, the new candle will be smaller than the old one since some of the wax will have been burnt off, but still it’s kind of neat-o.

It’s a concept by one Benjamin Shine, and it’s technically not for sale, but the recent public interest in it has resulted in his contacting “several companies” to see if it can be brought to market. You can sign up to be notified if it ever ends up seeing light of day.

Clever Candle Holder

tealight-candle-holder-with-match-slot-0

Oh, this is probably as old as the world. But had you seen it before? We hadn’t, we think it’s pretty cool, so we’ll tell you about it and you can direct your “Your stuff is stale as day-old farts!” comments to our legal department (hint: it doesn’t exist). Although, really, there’s not much to say. It’s a candle holder with an opening so you can light it with a match without burning your fingers or being forced to light the candle first and then having to insert it while hoping it doesn’t tilt around too much and extinguish (we get stressed out by simple tasks). It’s $16, which is probably too much, but we’re not about to start looking for another, cheaper purchase link.

Batman Candle Attachment

You’re looking at a 3D printed accessory that sticks onto the side of a candle, and projects a Batman shadow onto a wall nearby. It’s neat, costs $35, and comes in 4 different shapes, depending on which movie version of the logo you prefer.

PyroPet Candle Melts Away To Reveal Skeleton

p6472_extra3_column_grid_12

Run-of-the-mill candles are a snorefest in our book, so we’re kind of happy to report on the PyroPet Candle. Initially it looks like a 3D rendering of a cat made in a computer in 1999, back when “omg look at all the polygons” was the rage. But then as the wax melts, it reveals a creepy little metal skeleton. It’s kind of neat, but at £35 (roughly $60), it’s also kind of very expensive. Sure, it’ll burn for 20 hours and makes a great present and all that… but $60 for a candle is kind of a lot to stomach.

YankMe Candles Bring Disgusting Scents Like ‘Dutch Oven’ to Your Home–Well, Sort Of!

YankMe Candle

 

Can you imagine lighting up a candle that smells like urinal mints or skid marks? What about dutch oven and dog vomit-scented candles? Not very appealing, are they? These are exactly what the labels of YankMe Candles say, and those are the scents that’ll hit you the moment you open the lid.

Who in their right mind would buy candles with such unpleasant scents? Nobody, obviously. YankMe knows that, and they’re only yanking your chain because the candles don’t really smell like what their labels claim once you burn them. There’s actually smelly disc on the inside that’s emanating the stink of urinals and farts, but once you get that out of the way, you’ll be treated to soothing scents that you’d expect from a regular ol’ candle.

The candles retail for $14.99 each.

Celebrity Religious Candles Are A Must Have

celeb_religious_candles

You can take a joke, right? None of you are going to get your panties in a roll over this item, we hope. We certainly got a kick from these celebrity religious candles. There’s nothing like seeing Nicolas Cage’s happy mug gracing the outside of the type of candle you’d normally find… well, we don’t know where you’d usually find these types of candles. Church souvenir shops? Yeah, no clue. We skipped out on Sunday school and our knowledge is rudimentary. We can tell you that they’re 8 inches tall, cost about $12 and there are tons of celebrities depicted: Dave Grohl, Tom Hanks, Ron Swanson…

KFC-Scented Candle Sure Sounds Better Than Most Regular Scented Candles

Screen Shot 2013-11-24 at 12.30.02 PM

‘Morning breeze’, or ‘spring harvest’, or ‘honeydew explosion’ are just some of the creative names given to candle scents these days. They’re meant to convince you that your crappy little urban apartment is not actually a can of sardines squished between other sardine cans, but a wild and sprawling property in the wild. We reject the illusion and are rather more attracted to the above Kentucky Fried Chicken scented candle. Made by frying some chicken in soy wax and adding a few other “family secrets”, the candle allegedly smells pretty legit. They’re only making 25 of these, which they’re selling for $22 a piece.
