Sigur Rós Release Scented Candle

By Claire Lobenfeld / February 13, 2013

If you want your Sigur Rós listening experience to become more immersive, the band has got you covered. Now, from their online store, you can purchase the Vardelur candle — named for the Valtari track — which the band says “smell[s] of Sigur Rós’s studio, while they go about the quasi-mystical business of making the magic happen.” More specifically, their studio smells like the “smoky, slightly briny smell of a flotsam campfire on a distant black beach under a wan midnight sun.” So, it’s a pretty cool piece of merch if you’re a Sigur Rós diehard, but the idea of making a room smell, essentially, like salt water-soaked garbage on fire is not that great to me.
