Smells Like 2020.
2020 has been a bit of a sh*tter, that much is clear. But over the last few weeks I’ve grown dead sick of hearing everyone constantly banging on about how bad it’s been. With fewer people going outside, it seems that complaining about 2020 has seamlessly slotted in to replace complaining about the weather as our go-to, quintessentially British, platitudinous conversational gambit. Well, I’ve had enough. Sure, it hasn’t been the best year, but think about some of the positives. Actually, I don’t want to just think about those positives; I want to smell them. As luck would have it, Flaming Crap are commemorating this year with a new candle that they feel encapsulates 2020. With aromas of banana bread, hand sanitizer, DIY, and wood musks, the limited edition ‘2020 Scent’ could provide a nostalgic glow to your traditional Christmas séance this year. But that’s not all. As a nod to 2020’s favourite tiger fanatic, Joe Exotic, there’s also some budget aftershave mixed in. I’m not sure that aftershave would have been my first guess for the scent of a meth-head who spends all day in the hot sun wrestling with tigers before retiring to his bedroom with his 3 husbands, but I guess perhaps that particular smell wouldn’t be quite so pleasant when you’re having a relaxing bubble bath.Read Original Story
