Call Of Duty Scented Candles Are A Real Thing
Call of Duty's merchandising department hasn't exactly been delivering hit after hit. Of course, there are the little care packages that you'll find on the way to the checkout at your local game stores, and the 5-packs of socks in Primark.
Beyond that, the franchise hasn't been able to capitalise on itself in merchandising quite as Fortnite has. Well, except for the surprising sum of Call of Duty Jeeps... which exist for some reason. But now, it seems like they're fizzing with ideas, as perhaps one of the strangest gaming merch items has just hit the market, courtesy of Call of Duty: Warzone.
Warzone Candles Now Exist, But Why? Wick and Skull
In a surprise turn - and in a new collaboration with the team at candlemakers Wick and Skull - Call of Duty has revealed a new collection of scented candles that are themed around the Call of Duty franchise. If you've ever wondered what the gulag smells like, wonder no more.
Though on the surface you might expect them to smell of gunpowder and B.O, thankfully, they work harder to mask the smell of a gamer's bedroom than replicate it. The bundle of three comes with candles based on Nuketown, the "Second Chance", and Warzone Pacific.
Finally, we know what Nuketown smells like - apparently, it has notes of smoke, citrus, and ginger. The gulag-inspired Second Chance candle smells of dark musk, amber, and coriander. The Pacific candle offers a coconut, sandalwood, and cedar scent. Is it us, or do the branded Warzone candles actually sound really good?
Where Can I Get The Warzone Candles?
The Warzone candles are available from the Wick and Skull site, with each 8oz candle tin costing $19.99, and a bundle of all three candles coming in at $56.99. It might be a hefty price to pay, but if you're desperate for your gamer hovel to smell like the gulag, then we're sure it's worth the investment.
It's a fun new crossover that brings Caldera to your bedroom - and frankly, it seems like the candles could smell a lot worse. In a time that the CoDverse just lost 50 million players, scented candles might not be a way to claw them back. Then again, we never thought we'd be pining for a whiff of Nuketown and here we are.
