Scented candles are a great way to add some ambiance to a room while enjoying a scent that brings your joy. While for many people these scents are floral, fruity, or reminiscent of baked goods, for others, another type of scent is more the way to go.
During a time like a global pandemic when we can’t enjoy going out to bars like we used to, some people long for the admittedly unexpected scent of a dive bar. That’s why Miller Light has decided to make candles that caters to that exact need.
The company has released a line of three limited edition scented candles called “Game Day” “Beer Garden” and “Bar Smells.”
While we can all still enjoy a beer at home, we all must admit that it just isn’t the same as going out with our friends and enjoying a night out on the town. While these candles won’t replace going out, they can help us recreated the feeling that we are all desperately missing.
While each candle sells for $20, the proceeds are going towards a good cause. Carol Krienik, associate marketing manager for the company shared: “While the world finally starts to open back up, many are missing the sights, sounds, and smells of their favorite draft beer and their favorite watering hole.”
She continues: “That’s why Miller Lite is releasing a limited line of candles called ‘Bar Smells,’ with all proceeds going to the hospitality industry via the US Bartenders’ Guild Foundation. These candles will make you feel like you’re back at the bar with friends and a cold beer in hand, all while supporting the industry.”
So what exactly do the candles smell like? The Dive Bar candle smells of “top notes of aromatic tobacco [that] mix with familiar brew scents of fermented yeast” before finishing “with bottom notes of musk and pine.”
Meanwhile, Game Day “mixes top notes of the most ordered bar snacks on game day” (peanuts and jalapeno) “with the subtle power of comfortable cracked leather.”
Lastly, Game Day offers a different experience. The company describes: “Let the notes of green moss evoke a day spent outdoors as the scent of tropical sunscreens mixes with the staple garden eats that fill the air. As your nose fills with buttery delight of a fresh-baked pretzel, you can almost feel the splinters from the wooden table that’s older than you, your parents and probably pretzels themselves.”
Each candle offers 50 hours of burn time, so you’ll be able to recreate the good ol’ days for hours on end.
