Candles have been making a big comeback. Due to the pandemic, more people than ever are working from home and are looking for ways in which they can spice up their desk set-ups. Candles are one thing that workers have flocked to, in droves, in an effort to do just that.
But what happens when you get tired of your office smelling like a tropical paradise or a freshly-laundered load of linen? What happens when you want a little more humor, and have an insatiable desire to experiment? What happens if you simply want to play a prank on your loved ones, or want to go beyond the typical Yankee Candle scents?
The answer is to...get a funny candle scent! The internet knows no bounds, and therefore, the weird candles sold on the Internet know no bounds, either. Here are some of the funniest candle scents we found on the web.
