This candle always gets a lot of attention from it's name. No, it does not smell gross! This candle is a blend of Coconut, Rum & Bourbon. Living in Tampa, FL for the last 10 years we have a parade every year in January called Gaspirilla. The whole city dresses like pirates and a ship comes in off the bay full of them, they tak eover the city and kidnap the mayor! We love our Gasparilla tradition here and this candle is perfect for the occation.
