Your Living Room Can Now Smell Like Outer Space

Space: the final frontier…in your own home? While most of us will never get the opportunity to do the moonwalk on the actual moon, Cool Material has brought us one small step closer to experiencing the rest of the universe with the Space Candle. According to astronauts, outer space actually has a pretty distinct smell and now it can be shared with the rest of us! The odor has been described to be like “seared steak” or “hot metal.” Astronaut Tony Antonelli said that space “definitely has a smell that’s different than anything else.” Spacewalker Thomas Jones said space “carries a distinct odor of ozone, a faint acrid smell” and the odor is a little like gunpowder.

Cool Material took the descriptions from astronauts and created this 100% soy wax candle, made in the USA. There’s no description of the scent, but hopefully it’s not just a strange combination of seared meat, welding fumes and ozone. The 16 oz. candle is stored in an ultra cool, sleek minimalist black can to add to the mysterious vibes of space. If you’re up for an authentic space experience, just light this baby up and you’ll be ready for a “Star Trek” or “Star Wars” movie marathon. Why not both? The candle packs 80+ hours burn time after all. Buy Here
