eBay’s Authentique made a box-fresh sneakers smelling candle

by | Feb 17, 2021 | Collectibles

Some sneakerheads got a very fragrant gift this Valentine’s Day as eBay launched a unique candle with the scent of “authentic, new kicks”.

Authentique, a candle manufactured by the e-commerce giant, is described on the ​product’s webpage​ as a luxury candle made in a limited batch. With help from the company’s sneaker authentication experts, the candle is said to feature scents of leather, foam and even industrial glue. Now you can experience the scent of new sneakers without having to go out and buy an actual pair.

With a burn time of 35 hours, the exclusive $25 candle comes in some sleek packaging. Featuring a small black box stylishly featuring the eBay logo as well as the Authentique branding. An unassuming shopper could mistake the box for a luxury perfume rather than an exclusive candle, with it’s glossy modern packaging.

The candle’s launch coincided with the company’s expansion of their ​Authenticity Guarantee​. Now eBay is offering the guarantee to all new Nike and Adidas sneakers valued at $100 or more.

The candle sold out incredibly fast with all proceeds from the sale of the candles going to Soles4Souls, a charitable organization with a global focus on helping those in need.

Knowing how these things go, it’s only a matter of time before the candles reappear for sale, most likely posted by sellers on, you guessed it, eBay!
