The Yankee Candle Phenomenon

The earliest symptoms of COVID-19 we heard of were cough and fever. Then word spread that many victims reported a loss of their sense of smell. All these months later, symptoms vary widely, from none to severe, and the disease affects people in so many ways that many are infected without even knowing it. So is it any surprise that people who purchase scented Yankee Candles may be upset that they can't smell them?

Kate Petrova saw the Tweet by Terri Nelson and went to work crunching the numbers.

Petrova has more graphs that show a striking correlation between complaints over scentless candles and the spread of COVID in the US. Read the rest at Twitter or at Threadreader. -via Metafilter

Actually, Yankee Candle Company inc. could complain about olfactionless customers... But won't do so, as you never complain about your customers... However they could bring out "covid test candles" ... with different grades of olfactive penetration to be able to determind a deteriorating sense of smell.. from "a single daisy in a clean mt.everest summit breeze" to "being drowned in No.5".I havent experienced a single room scent product i considered providing a positive experiece to my sense of smell...
