Have you ever felt you needed your home to smell like KFC gravy? The fast-food chain believes this is something you do need and has launched a limited edition gravy-scented candle.
South Africans shouldn’t get too excited, though, as the candle will only be available in the UK, and only then “for the first 230 fans who apply”.
New York Post reports that the company has a history of coming up with limited edition products only its most committed consumers could love, including chicken-scented yule logs, and herbs and spices bath bombs
The “staggeringly nose-stimulating” candle, which was created by a “trusted parfumier”, according to This is Local London, will “fill your home with the incredible aroma of KFC gravy”, said a spokesperson for the fried chicken chain.
The perfumer called working with the brand an honour.
“Initially, the different ingredients within the gravy were split into their constituent parts and fragrances matched to each. Then the scent was built component by component in the similar ratios as KFC’s iconic gravy,” the perfumer explained.
“The artisanal approach to creating the candles was crucial to ensure the familiar and evocative aroma of gravy was perfectly captured.”
The Gravy Candle. Yes. A KFC Gravy scented candle.
