I wrote about Cloon Keen Atelier’s Bataille de Fleurs a couple of months back, but it would appear the Galway-based artisan candlemakers and perfumers have found a new hero product in the form of Antique Library, which is, quite frankly, the sexiest candle I have ever smelled.

It’s described as containing nutmeg, citrus, cedar, patchouli and beeswax, but what I smell when I smell it is, for want of a less crude term, man. It is a sexy, sexy male scent – all muscle and brawn and Alcide in True Blood*.

It’s €26.95 which is a fairly expensive candle when Dunnes and Penneys are selling 10 million for a fiver**, but this baby will burn for 60-70 hours and comes in a hefty metal holder. It’s just really impressive, aside from smelling like sexual heaven. Yes, I went there. Definitely one for the Santa list***.

** That is not entirely accurate.

*** Specifically, my Santa list, because I gave my own Antique Library to my housemate, which, granted, means I still get to smell it as it’s, y’know, in the house, but means I don’t have one of my very own any more. Sigh.
