If you are looking for a last-minute gift for the lobster lover in your life, look no further than this uniquely scented candle.
Get Maine Lobster, a seafood company based in Portland, released a holiday candle in partnership with Seawicks, a small candle making company based in Boothbay. The candles are scented with drawn butter and “lobster dust,” which is made from finely crushed lobster shells.
“We love the candle as a gift for seafood lovers,” said Mark Murrell, CEO for Get Maine Lobster. “You can infuse their home with the scent of freshly drawn butter and lobster without lifting a finger in the kitchen.”
The lobster dust allegedly provides a soft hint of the sweet, briney scent of Maine lobster without any of the off-putting fishy smells that might come from a lobster boat after a long season, or the dumpster at your favorite summer lobster pound.
The limited edition 9-ounce candle is made from soy wax and burns for 60 to 65 hours. It is not, however, recommended for anybody with seafood allergies.
The candles are $24.99 each with flat rate shipping of $8.99 and can be ordered on the Get Maine Lobster website. Order yours as soon as possible to get it in time for the holidays.
