You might fantasize about quitting your job all the time, but there’s that one coworker who makes the workday bearable. Haven’t most of us experienced this at least once in our careers? And because for some reason there’s now a candle named for every possible experience, there’s a candle for this one too. Named the coworker candle on Etsy, it features a label that reads, “I’d burn this place down if you didn’t work here.”

Of course, Silver Dollar Candle Co., which makes the coworker candle, is not advocating arson, and neither are we. This candle is just a way to thank the person who makes your mediocre workday okay, and sometimes even fun.

What does the candle smell like? You can choose for yourself. The coworker candle is available in over 30 scents, ranging from banana pancakes to fresh-cut Christmas tree. Whether you’re doing some (very early) shopping for your Secret Santa gift or making a just-because gesture, there’s likely a scent that will speak to you.

You can even add a personalized name or short message on the lid. The eight-ounce candle measures three and a half inches tall by three inches wide.

Based in Knoxville, Tennessee, Silver Dollar Candle Co. uses 100% American-grown soy wax, free from coloring, dyes, UV inhibitors, phthalates, and nitro musk. Its wicks are 100% cotton, containing no zinc or metal.

The reviews are full of people who love (at least one of) their coworkers. “Bought this as a gift for my coworker that has worked weekends with me for over 12 years. She loves it!” reads one. “It came quickly and the scent options were great. Thank you.”

“The cutest gift for my coworker!” reads another. “She laughed and thought it was the best! The candle smells amazing too!”
