Kacey Musgraves has created a candle inspired by her 2018 song Slow Burn.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the country music star announced that she had teamed with bosses at Los Angeles-based brand Boy Smells on a candle called Slow Burn – with the name taken from the opening track of her Grammy Award-winning album, Golden Hour.

“I brought my song Slow Burn to life in the form of a smell. The scentiment (sic) is exactly what the song sounds like. It’s a little dank. A little crisp. Androgynous. Floaty. Earthy. Grounded,” she wrote alongside an image of the product. “It’s the smell of a fire faintly drifting on the breeze as you walk to your favourite bar down the street and cherish slow sips of your favourite wine. Briefly thinking about strangers on the other side of the globe in Beijing rushing into work but you’re right here, admiring the fading colours of the disappearing sunset and enjoying exactly where you are in all senses.”

According to a description on the Boy Smells website, the Slow Burn candle features notes of incense, black pepper, elemi, guaiac, raspberry, tonka, amber and smoked papyrus. It comes in a matte gradient glass tumbler with metallic label and is priced at $39 (£30).

And while the Slow Burn candle sold out within hours of going online, it is expected to be restocked shortly.

“This was really a fun creative challenge for me and I’m a big fan of @boy__smells – a queer brand with Texas roots. Hope you love what we created. Burn in a hurry,” the 31-year-old added.

Kacey’s entry into the candle market comes after Gwyneth Paltrow hit headlines last month when she released a candle called This Smells Like My Vagina, which included notes of geranium and bergamot, on her Goop website.
