If you had to describe the year 2020 in a scent, what scent would you use? Here's a christmas gift idea that someone will definitely re-gift...

A Candle company in the UK has decided to sell a candle that they call "The 2020 Scent."  It's from a company (very fittingly) named Flaming Crap. I mean, that's probably what you would have described 2020 to smell like, right?

Unfortunately, how do you describe an entire year with just one scent?  You don't.  The candle  actually goes through 4 different scents as it burns to bring you through what they call four of the big smells of 2020:
1. Banana bread....not so bad
2. Hand sanitizer...for when the pandemic hit...
3. Wood, for the DIY project and home improvement phase of quarantine.
4. And, quote, "budget aftershave and earthy essence," which is supposed to make you think of "Tiger King".

Want one for that special someone on your Christmas list this year?  I mean, aside from toilet paper ornaments and ornaments of snowmen wearing masks, what says 2020 more than this candle?  They're giving one away

They're available through the website if you want to get one.  They're only $20 and they fit nicely in a stocking.  But be aware, because they're in the UK, International shipping might take a little while.   Also...some of the things on their site are a bit NSFW.

What scents did they leave out?  Maybe "The inside of a mask" or "bad breath."  They could have added the smell of styrofoam takeout containers.  There are a lot of directions they could have gone.  What would you have added?
