The fictional world has (falsely) led you to believe that nerds smell like sweat and Mountain Dew. But, to some, it actually smells like freshly cut Hyrule grass, floral notes from the gardens of the Shire, or warm hints of caramel from a frothy Butterbeer.
At least, that’s what your home will smell like if your light one of the candles made by Etsy seller NerdieNifties. The shop features candles and body products that pull fragrances from your favorite fictional worlds. Everything from Game of Thrones to Animal Crossing are present in her shop.
The owner, a former design assistant, started the shop in 2014, after making a nerdy coaster set for her brother. She has since sold 2000+ items, so you can rest assured you’re getting more than just a cute label on a jar.
NerdieNifties encourages you to, “embrace your inner nerd.” We could definitely embrace some of these scents.
This candle has a warm, buttery caramel scent that will mentally apparate you straight to the Leaky Cauldron.
Nothing is more invigorating than the Roost’s finest cup of coffee. Shut up and take our bells!
3) Lon Lon Milk
Just as Hyrule’s most precious dairy elixir comes in three flavors, the candle also comes in three scents: chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla. Proceeds do not go to Ingo.
4) Red Wedding
What does one of the most tragic deaths in Game of Thrones history smell like? Mulled cranberries, what else?
Tip-toe through the tulips of Samwise Grangee’s garden. (Barefoot, of course.)
Is there anything better than the smell of freshly baked bread? Not being kidnapped and hijacked by the Capitol is a close second. Perhaps this candle would have brought Peeta back to his regular self.
7) Yoda’s Hut
The home of a 900-year-old Jedi Master who lives in a swamp might not be the first essence you’d want to capture, but apparently, Yoda’s home contains sweet undertones, like vanilla, cloves, and cinnamon. That guy is full of surprises.
The icy tip of Azeroth has a chilly, peppermint scent that will make you say, “WoW!”
