Yankee Candle Captures Kitten Whiskers In Candle Form

Whiskers On Kittens Limited Edition Jar Candle

Yankee Candle, purveyors of "America's best loved" paper weights, have announced a feline-themed addition to their limited edition "My Favorite Things" holiday candle collection.

Inspired by "The Sound of Music," the line evokes memories of crisp apple strudel and schnitzel with noodles, along with not-so-obvious air freshening options like brown paper packages and the mysteriously scented, whiskers on kittens.

My Favorite Things by Yankee Candle

As much as I'd like to believe that Yankee Candle is at the forefront of feline scent magic, the candle's smell, which is described as "a sweet scent with a gentle nuzzle of sandalwood and vanilla musk," sounds more like whiskers on kittens...who had an unfortunate run-in with your Bath and Body Works stash.

Twitter user @TheRealSmokie was able to sample the scent through a scratch and sniff catalog, and more accurately describes the aroma as, "The happiness of tiny, clean pawsies and soft belly rubs, topped with chin scratches! Delightful!"

If you're ready to fill your home with the intoxicating odor of kitten whiskers this Christmas, the candle is available on its own and as part of a sampler votive gift book set. Or you know, you could just grab your cat off the couch, and start huffing away.

The title is probably meant to indicate how happy it will make you. Me?
Whiskers on kittens are wonderful so, if it's really that good, I'm sure to love the candle.
