If you’re looking for a candle that commemorates the War of 1812, then look no further! (Or whatever, you can keep looking if you want to. We feel pretty confident you’ll end up back here.)

The War of 1812-Scented Candle features a tiny wax White House on its surface, so you can reenact the British Army’s burning of the White House. (The British also burned the Capitol, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, and Treasury buildings, but if you want to reenact that, you’re on your own!)

We also understand if you choose to never light this candle. These days, it is just so hard to imagine wanting the White House to burn down. SO HARD.

NOTE TO PEDANTS: The wax White House is modeled to look like the pre-1814 White House rather than the White House as it exists today. That's our gift to you, pedants!

We should also note that even though the British Army DID burn Washington, it was only after Americans had burned and looted the capital of Canada, as well as a bunch of other Canadian cities. But no one ever makes a candle about that! (Including us.)
