Apparently, Drake is releasing a line of candles that smell like him, and nobody really knows what to make of that.
Well I suppose if Erykah Badu can release candles that smell like her Badussy, Drake can get in on the scented action as well. On Monday (Nov. 30), InStyle magazine shared some details about Drake’s line of candles and revealed that the 6 God had modeled one of the scents after his own signature smell. Earlier this year, Drake was giving out sample candles to fans and friends, testing the waters. Evidently, the consensus must have been a positive one, because this holiday season he’s launching the official line of scented candles, in collaboration with Better World Fragrance House and Revolve.
According to the fashion publication, one of the five scents designed by the rapper is called Carby Musk and it’s a “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. Featuring notes of Musk, Ambers, Cashmere, Suede, and Velvet. Actually smells like Drake.”… I know what you’re thinking, “What?”
One might ask themselves if that means Drake is simply releasing a candle that smells like his $200 bottle of Clive Christian cologne, and the answer is no. According to the partnering brand, there will be five scent options:
Carby Musk: A “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. Features notes of Musk, Ambers, Cashmere, Suede, and Velvet,” that “actually smells like Drake,” according to Revolve’s leading air care perfumer, Michael Carby.
Sweeter Tings: “An addictive and nostalgic Oriental Gourmand fragrance with the subtleties of comfort and goodness. Features notes of Bergamot, Lemon Peel, Dark Voodoo Rose, Warm Cedarwood, and Soft Musks.”
Williamsburg Sleepover: “A genderless and luminous floral-woody musk fragrance that captures the essence of an urban garden under shaded lights. Features notes of Rose, Lily of the Valley, Vetiver, Amber, Musk, Patchouli, and Cedarwood,” Carby wrote.
Good Thoughts: “A bouquet of rich florals surrounded by a vibrant bright light of freshness for a captivating positive energy. Features notes of Fresh Aldehydes, Bergamot Oil- Italy, Fir Balsam Oil – Canada, Ylang Ylang – Madagascar, Clove Buds, Pimento Berries – Jamaica, Sandalwood Oil Album – Australia, Patchouli Oil – Indonesia, and Sensual Musks.”
And last but not least, Muskoka: “Oriental Woody fragrance that emulates the smoldering warmth of burning woods, golden embers, and the feeling of being cozy by the fire. Features notes of Birch Tar, Fresh Clove Buds, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, and Smoked Leather Accord.”
The four other candle fragrances are selling for $48 each, with Carby Musk being priced at $80. Are you trying to smell what Aubrey is cooking?
