J.D. has to write “fake cheese” on the lid because he knows if I find a dented candle tin full of wax shavings I might mistake it for real cheese and eat it.
The Titanic-Scented Candle smells like fresh ocean air. Now there’s no need for you to ever go on a cruise!
The Marie Antoinette-Scented Candle is the perfect Father’s Day gift if you want to warn your dad that his outfits/hats are too ornate, his lifestyle is too decadent, and he is not sharing enough of his money with the peasantry (i.e. you).

About

Hi.

As you might have guessed, our names are J.D. and Kate. We are married (to each other) and live in St. Louis, Missouri, where we moved to pursue the American dream of finding excitement, adventure and opportunity in the untamed west, like Daniel Boone, or Alfred Packer.

When I first had the idea for a Vladimir Putin-scented candle, I knew it was such a SOLID GOLD idea that I had to start making it myself, before someone else did. So we taught ourselves to make candles, and we built a candle workshop in our basement by clearing out J.D.’s earnestly bought but long-idle exercise equipment. These days, J.D. pours the candles, I package and ship them, and we both design the labels.

When we’re not making candles, we're humor writers. You can subject yourself to our work by visiting www.hottestheadsofstate.com, or by buying our book, Hottest Heads of State, published by Henry Holt & Co.
