Happy Saint Patrick's Day! This post is not Irish at all. I discovered last night that an Aaron Burr-scented candle is now a thing that exists.

Personally I am surprised and not a little disappointed that an Aaron Burr-scented candle is not advertised as smelling like the black powder adrenaline aftermath of frantically extinguishing yourself, your shirt, your desk, and your diary after a gloriously ill-advised midnight fireworks experiment, graced with top notes of insomnia, embarrassment, and the ghostly satisfaction of knowing that your daughter will laugh her face off as soon as she reads that entry.

Holy crap, that's the best thing ever. (Cue Cal yelling, from the other room: "Oh, you SHOULDN'T say that WORD!")

Holy crap, that's the best thing ever.

It delights me that not only did somebody decide that the world needed this object in it, they actually went and made it happen.

It was deserved!

I was actually going to ask "What does Aaron Burr smell like?" - but of course you're right. It should be exactly that.

One of the many ways I was disappointed by Barbara Hambly's Patriot Hearts is that Aaron Burr does not, if I recall correctly, set a single thing on fire.

(More seriously, it is a very good book in spots, but falls short in ways that go beyond "Surely she could do better than this" and get close to "OH BARBARA HAMBLY NO.")

Ha! Without knowing more than the fact of the Burr-Hamilton duel, I like that candle. (In fact, looking at that candle, I've already learned more things about Aaron Burr.)

And *your* description of the scent is to die for.

Ha, yes! That is a more representative Aaron Burr scent.
