Scented candles have a way of transforming a space into something more than the sum of its parts. Scent triggers powerful memories, conjures feelings and moods that enhance a space. We found 24 scented candles that playfully imagine the scents of some of our most beloved geeky stories. We recommend pairing these candles with the appropriate book, binge-watch, or game session. See if you can guess what these smell like!
The Batcave smells like….
…not Jingle Bells. Rather, his bat cave smells like mystical cedarwood with a touch of jasmine and hint of violet. The wick is made from sustainably harvested sandalwood that is woody and musky. Get this in time for the Lego Batman Movie.

The Joker smells like…
…Crazed Bubblegum! As the Etsy maker Dustin says about his handmade Joker Candle, “Howl at the moon in ecstatic madness as your home is engulfed with bubblegum and the will to carry out mass destruction.” Pairs well with a Harley Quinn candle.

Loki smells like…
…cedar and oak. “Born to be a king, I ask one thing in return: a front seat to watch the Earth burn [candles].” We assume the candles were implied, right, Loki?
Bubble And Geek – $16
Legend of Zelda’s Link smells like…
A Triforce of myrrh, dragons’ blood, and patchouli accented with rose and jasmine. The base note of woodsy musk will accompany you as you travel through Hyrule, ready to save Zelda!
