WTF do you want to know?  

They start out smelling great...

Then WTF!? They switch to bad smelling candles!

Is this real?

That's the first question everyone asks. Of course it's real! You've probably seen switch scent candles before (aka layered candles). We were just the first to use that technology and design function for prank candles. Our candles start out smelling great, and then they smell terrible. If you order one of these for yourself (aka if you're weird) or a frenemy, you're going to get a REAL candle that starts out smelling great, and then, WTF!?

How does it work?

The candles start out smelling incredible. Then, they take a turn for the worst (like just about every horror movie ever written). They are 40% great smelling and 60% "WTF" smelling. We simply poured the rank smell first, let it dry, and then, applied the delicious cover-up. All you have to do is buy it, give us a name and address for delivery, and rest easy knowing someone is in for a good prank right when they least expect it!

Who would I buy this for?

WTF kind of question is that? You can buy them for a friend as a good ole' fashioned prank. You can buy them for an enemy as an anonymous "I hate you." The possibilities are as endless or as limited as your imagination. Did your girlfriend dump you? Buy her a candle which she's sure to light just when the moment is right with someone else. Got turned down for a great job? Let the hiring manager know how much it stinks. Terrible service at a bar or restaurant? Just make a switch with the votives they have on deck, and bounce.

Good luck and be sure to send us your success stories so we can post them here.

Will they know it's from me?

It's completely anonymous! So, no, unless you let the cat out of the bag!  We promise we'll keep your identity anonymous outside of a court order in which you violate a Restraining Order (in which case you suck anyway and we'd be glad to snitch on creepy punks)! 

How good do our candles smell when they're good?

When they start burning, they smell better than angel perfume, vanilla fields, or Dr. Avery Gilbert's secret stash of incense. Honestly though, who cares how good they smell when they are good? That's not why you're buying them! It's only 40% of the candle, or a few hours of burn time, and then the fun really starts.

How bad do they smell when they're bad?

They smell worse than Satan's powder room in the burning pits of hell after an all-night bender with spicy wings, bean dip, and too much beer. ‘Stank breath’ should be called demon breath. ‘Dirty fart’ could be called elephant diarrhea. ‘Sweaty gym socks’ smell worse than the kid in your P.E. class whose mom never washed his uniform all year round. These scents are guaranteed to make anyone say, "WTF!?"

How long does it take for the stank?

It's a 30 hour burn and 40% of that burn time is the good smell. However, it burns in terms of volume and if you think about a candle burning, the middle sinks first, leaving room on the sides. So probably 3-4 hours before it smells like a weird mix of, first instance, apple pie and fart, and maybe 8-10 hours before it's full-on WTF!?

Random Review:
We don't have much in terms of reviews because we're just getting going, but from the first day we launched our Facebook profile page, we got the following review: "From what I have smelled they are the most accurate scents I may have ever smelled. Uncanny. I figure I shouldn't ask how these scents were made." -James T.
