When choosing scents, it’s normal to pick ones that remind you of good times, like a tropical beach or a pine forest. But a year into the pandemic, you might actually be missing the smell of the one surprising place: the office.

Ad agency R/GA has created a line of scented candles humorously called Eau d’Office, which evokes the various aromas you can whiff at work. There are six scents available, including: Thursday Happy Hour on a High Table, Breakfast Leftovers in Edit Suite 1, Warm 96 Page Deck Left on the Printer, Sushi Thursday at the Café, Room 12F.1 After a 6-Hour Workshop, and Afternoon Rush at the Coffee Bar.

Katie Facade and Thibault Gerard, both creative directors at the agency, described the scents in a way that will make you nostalgic. Sushi Thursday at the Café is “spicy wasabi meets the zesty cleaning spray on a freshly wiped table,” while Thursday Happy Hour on a High Table is said to have “an inviting aroma of bourbon base notes, white claw middle notes, and Cheetos top notes.” 

According to Façade and Gerard, they came up with the candles as a funny parting gift to a couple of colleagues. But seeing how everyone loved their scents, they decided to make it available to all. And who wouldn’t want these aromas? You might actually miss the smell of brewed coffee with the soft background noises of printers jamming and someone saying “synergy” for the nth time.
