    I'd buy one if they offered candles in "Essence of Diesel"
    or "Eau de 90w Gear Oill" [grin]

    I would definitely buy some "Burnt Electronics" scent if they made it. They need a "Hoppes No.9" scent as well.

    Or the breech of my SKS. It smells like the inside of a 16" turret of a battleship. [smile]

    smoked resistor is not a scent I want to smell on purpose. I may lose geek points there, but it's true. Gunpowder would be great, but I think I'll stick with the real thing.

    Here's another vote for a Hoppes #9 scent. Man that stuff smells good.

    Also, I'd like one that smells like the exhaust of my ZZR1200 right after I start it on a cold morning with full choke. Could they make a candle sound like that too? [laugh]

    And for old times' sake, I'd like one that smells like the Westerbeke diesel in the sailboat I sold a while back.

    I'm wondering why they don't have ass scratch, or haven't showered in 2 days scents..?

    This is something I made as a gag gift for a friend a few years ago… Slightly NSFW.

    My first thought was Hoppes No9. I was surprised to see that a couple of others had that same thought.[grin]

    If they had Hoppes #9 or something like gunsmoke I would have ordered some. Seriously! The thought of my wife saying "What in God's name is that smell?" would be worth it.

    Then again, she's said that at other times...[laugh]

    Change the name to 'Tactical Compression Baselayer' and they'll have a hit.

    I like the Autoshop & Woodshop candles, but I think they need to come up with a few more flavors. I'd buy these:

    -Gunsmoke
    -Hydraulic oil
    -Welding fumes
