Smells like teen holy spirit

  • by

An American couple have created a candle called ‘His Essence‘ which is supposed to smell like Jesus. Not Jesus as he smelt here on earth, you understand — because who wants a candle that smells of sweat, fish, blood and donkey muck? No, this is based on Psalm 45.8 — a poem which states that ‘All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia…’ This is sometimes taken as a prophetic statement about Jesus (because otherwise it would just be a love poem about a royal wedding and we obviously couldn’t have that in the Bible). Apparently — and with a stunning lack of irony — they’re planning a hand cream next.
