A Candle That Gives Off The Scent Of Freshly Unboxed Apple Products
It is 100% soy wax, in case you are wondering.
The pointer is from Ted Gioia.
This topic should have the title, “There Is No Great Stagnation”
I love the smell of ethyl butyrate & acetaldehyde in the morning!
Causes cancer, like ‘new car smell’.
Wouldn’t the reverse make more sense — instead of a candle that smells like plastic and circuit board, make the computer smell like something nice. Like an apple, for instance.
Reminds me of a dirty old joke. Entrepreneur is failing to sell his idea to make smell like an orange…then the light bulb goes off.
Whoops, I put the operant vulgarity in brackets and it was disappeared.
Is this to remember the long ago time when you bought an Apple product?
At first I thought you meant products *made* of apples, like apple pies or something. And I thought, “I didn’t know was made of soy smelled like apples when melted.”
I shouldn’t be up so late…
