Geeky Scented Candles Let You Wax Nostalgic

Feb 13, 2013, 11:00 ET from Geeknet, Inc.

FAIRFAX, Va., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ThinkGeek's (NASDAQ: GKNT) GeekLabs department is proud to launch a set of four votive candles that transport noses to another time, realm, astronomical plane of existence, or locker room. 


It's easy to find a pleasantly scented candle. But if scent is the strongest sense linked to memory, why not be taken back to someplace special? With its customers in mind, ThinkGeek has created these exclusive candle scents:

  • Retro Arcade – candy, pizza, and a pocket full of quarters
  • Middle Earth – grass, rolling farmland, and a bright blue sky
  • Teen Spirit – your deodorant from high school, with less awkwardness
  • Space – ozone and neutral zone

"You always see candles that take you on 'exotic journeys'," states ThinkGeek's own Ty "The Nose" Liotta, Chief Schnoz of GeekLabs. "We wanted to create something more accessible.  Something that every geek will relate to."

The GeekLabs department of ThinkGeek has been responsible for creations like the Annoy-a-tron and Mega Stomp Panic.  This is their first work with the wax candle arts and they are proud of what they can now bring to ThinkGeek's loyal customers.
