Nostalgia is a bona fide trend right now, and nothing makes that clearer than the resurgence of our favorite old TV shows. From “Friends” to “Veronica Mars”, long-gone TV shows are more popular than ever—and that includes, of course, “Golden Girls”. Even though it’s been off the air for over 25 years now, we’re maybe even more obsessed with “Golden Girls” than we ever were before. (There’s even a Golden Girls-themed cruise coming in 2020.)

Last year we covered these amazing “Golden Girls”-themed prayer candles, but they’re not the only ones out there. We just discovered another line of “Golden Girls”-inspired scented candles on Etsy and Amazon, and we’re buying them for everyone we know. With the holidays coming up, these cute fragrances make a perfect gift for any fan (or you can just buy a few for yourself).

The Sophia Petrillo candle smells like “sarcasm mixed with life advice” (aka garden flowers) while the champagne-scented Blanche Devereaux candle “smells like lingerie, flirting and isn’t it amazing how I can feel so bad and still look so good?” If you’re more of a Dorothy Zbornak person, you’ll love the vanilla sandalwood candle that smells like “never being short of a comeback or an insult for anyone.” And of course, we can’t forget about Rose Nylund: “Smells like the biggest heart, asking dumb questions better than anyone.”

Each 9 oz. candle is hand-poured in Astoria, Oregon, and features a burn time up to 50 hours. You can also purchase all four at once for $75 and save a few extra bucks. There are plenty of other pop culture-themed candles from the same shop, including a Daenerys Targaryen candle if you’re still not over that finale and a Buddy the Elf candle that is just begging to be a stocking stuffer.

If you can’t get enough “Golden Girls,” we’ve spotted several other fun products that show off our love for the show. There’s a Golden Girls: Twas the Night Before Christmas book, a backpack featuring the Girls’ faces and a leafy pattern reminiscent of Blanche’s bedroom wallpaper, and socks featuring each of the Girls. You can even bring the Golden Girls to your next game night with this strategy game (sounds like a perfect night in to us).
