Ever since time immemorial it's all stored up in chemicals

Happy Saint Patrick's Day! This post is not Irish at all. I discovered last night that an Aaron Burr-scented candle is now a thing that exists.

Personally I am surprised and not a little disappointed that an Aaron Burr-scented candle is not advertised as smelling like the black powder adrenaline aftermath of frantically extinguishing yourself, your shirt, your desk, and your diary after a gloriously ill-advised midnight fireworks experiment, graced with top notes of insomnia, embarrassment, and the ghostly satisfaction of knowing that your daughter will laugh her face off as soon as she reads that entry.

I had wondered if the candle smelled like cream of tartar punch! I tried reading some of his diaries. I laughed pretty hard and then felt like I'd better stop before I got sucked into the pervasive weirdness of his world. :-D

Amazing! I love both the candle that exists and the candle you have imagined.
