‘Tis the season… to smell like Drake. The Toronto MC is preparing to break into a new merch universe with a line of five scented candles through Better World Fragrance House, including one offering, Carby Musk, described as having a “smooth musk fragrance” that “actually smells just like Drake.”
The full description for the $80 candle, which is already sold out on the Revolve website — the only place where the items were available — reads: “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. Actually smells like Drake – it’s the personal fragrance he wears, which inspired BWFH.”
According to a spokesperson for Revolve, the candle line was exclusively available in September in conjunction with the Revolve U conference, where Drake’s perfumist for the project, Michael Carby, spoke on a panel; the candles have since sold out on the site and at press time no further information was available about about the rollout and whether the times would be available in the future on the Better World site.
According to EW, Drizzy began teasing the candles on his socials in June, including a Story that include images of four blue candles with gold writing and the promise “@betterworldfragrances available soon.” Among the other scents in the line: Sweeter Tings, Williamsburg Sleepover, Good Thoughts and Muskoka.
Sweeter Tings is described as an “addictive and nostalgic Oriental Gourmand fragrance with the subtleties of comfort and goodness,” according a Revolve description of the candle that features notes of bergamot, lemon peel, dark voodoo rose, warm cedarwood and soft musks. The intriguing-sounding Williamsburg Sleepover has notes of rose, lily of the valley, vetiver, amber, musk, patchouli and cedarwood, to capture the essence of “an urban garden under shaded lights.”
Muskoka features notes of birch tar, fresh clove buds, cedarwood, sandalwood and smoked leather to emulate the “smoldering warmth of burning woods, golden embers, and the feeling of being cozy by the fire.” And Good Thoughts is comprised of bergamot oil, clove buds, pimento berries and balsam fir oil for a “bouquet of rich florals surrounded by a vibrant bright light of freshness for a captivating positive energy.” A spokesperson for Revolve had not returned requests for comment at press time.
According to Complex, Drake sent candles to friends over the summer, including sharing them with the Toronto Raptors and Kehlani.
A spokesperson for Drake could not be reached for comment.
