Video Game Candles

We all love that 'new book' smell, and new video games are similar (well, the ones you actually buy rather than download).

But artist AJ Hateley has taken it a step further, by imaging what the video games themselves smell like. He's created a video game candle series, featuring scents inspired by The Legend of Zelda (notes of crushed leaves, fresh mint and refreshing eucalyptus), Portal (notes of sandalwood, fragrant oudh wood and Moroccan spices), Final Fantasy (notes of freshly laundered linen and pure white cotton flowers with a base of calla lily, vanilla and warm musk) and Skyrim (notes evocative of a crackling log fire, with hints of smokey incense and smouldering cedar wood).

It's a shame she didn't do one for Grand Theft Auto V - the smell of burning rubber, gunsmoke and adrenalin.

Take a look at the series below, and you can buy them all from Gametee for £4.99 each.
