A South Dakota couple is selling candles that smell like Jesus, reports Philadelphia's WCAU-TV. How do they know what Jesus smells like? It's in the Bible, specifically Psalm 45:8: "All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia."The candles are selling like hotcakes; they've shipped more than 10,000 since October. Future products include perfume, so you too will be able to smell like the Savior.
"It's a Messianic Psalm referring to when Christ returns," says Karen Tosterud, who makes the candles with her husband, Bob. Wanting to find out what Jesus will smell like, they ordered the oils and combined them to produce "sort of a flowery, cinnamon aroma."
