To look at they're all alike, the same sleek glass container in minimal black. But as each candle is modeled on one of ODIN's prize winning fragrances (the company just won a 2012 FiFi Indie Fragrance Award for its sixth scent, 06 Amanu) what you're really getting is a lovely low flame married to a unisex scent. The four you've got to choose from include the woodsy spice of 01 SUNDA, the citrusy 02 OWARI, 03 CENTURY's dusky chypre, and the floral 04 PETRANA.
I'm also a fan of ODIN's latest fragrance 07 TANOKE—not yet a candle, I fear. It's another unisex fragrance that strikes a bass-heavy, cedar note. All the candles go for $65 and can be bought from ODIN's website.
