If you've ever wanted a candle that speaks to your existential crisis and ongoing stress, have we got news for you! is selling this What the Actual F*ck? Candle ($18), and it's everything we ever wished for. The candle, named after everyone's favourite exclamation of exasperation and/or confusion, also features a tongue-in-cheek caption on the label: "Who am I? Why am I here? Why is this candle talking to me?"

Although the candle claims that it "smells like an existential crisis," it actually has a cool, soothing cucumber-aloe daiquiri scent. It's seven ounces of hand-poured, 100 percent soy wax, with an estimated burn time of around 40 hours. The same brand of candles — Whiskey River Soap Co. — also offers other hilarious, mildly NSFW scents such as this F*cking Meetings one we can also all relate to. So if you're looking for a candle to pull double duty as a snarky statement to the world and a delightful scent, you're definitely in the right place!
