Drake's Drake-scented candle is the stocking stuffer that could take your holiday gift giving to the next level!
According to InStyle, Champagne Papi teamed up with fragrance house Givaudan to create not only a candle that smells like himself but an entire line of custom candles that smell like everything he loves.
While details about the candles are sparse, the outlet reported that they are a part of the Better World Fragrance House, which is seemingly Drake's new fragrance company. The brand's first set of candles appear to be priced at $48, excluding the Drake-scented candle called Carby Musk, which is $80.
And if you're wondering what a Drake-scented candle smells like, well according to its description on Revolve, the "smooth musk fragrance is introspective as in an interpretation of your beautiful self, yet extrovertive as how you would want others to see your bold and brilliant self." It reportedly features "notes of Musk, Ambers, Cashmere, Suede, and Velvet," and "actually smells like Drake" because "it’s the personal fragrance he wears, which inspired" the entire collection of candles.
As fans know, the Canadian rapper first teased a line of scented candles on his Instagram Story back in June, posting four navy blue candles that featured gold handwriting on each one. "@betterworldfragrances Available soon cc:@ovoniko," Drake captioned the post.
Then in July, blue candles with gold writing started to appear in celebrities' Instagram stories that tagged Drake's IG handle. And in September, perfumer and fragrance expert Michael Carby of the Swiss fragrance house basically confirmed Drake's new candle venture when he revealed during an episode of Revolve U that he and his team met with Drake in Toronto and hit it off while discussing the similarities between writing songs and creating fragrances, InStyle reported.
According to the outlet, the two came up with a line of Drake-inspired candles that feature five soy wax candles, all made in Canada, that come with a gold marker to personalize the jar. The scents reportedly include Carby Musk, Good Thoughts, Williamsburg Sleepover, Muskoka, and Sweeter Tings.
While an official release date has not been announced, the candles are reportedly supposed to launch this holiday season.
