WTF Alert: Sigur Ros Selling Their Own Scented Candle

Take a listen to Sigur Ros' "Vardeldur" track above. Any scents coming to you?

Apparently, the track smells, yes smells, like the atmospheric Icelanders' recording studio. They want fans to have that experience too—via scented candle, of course! 

The group listed the "Vardeldur Candle" at their online store. Read the moving description below:

"The smoky, slightly briny smell of a flotsam campfire on a distant black beach under a wan midnight sun. And, most recently, the smell of Sigur Ros's studio, while they go about the quasi-mystical business of making the magic happen. Specially developed to the band's olfactory specifications, this candle burns for 35 hours evocative hours of 'Instant Iceland,' or something like that."

Those 35 evocative hours could be yours for the low, low price of just $23.50! (Oh, and a $14.44 shipping fee).
