The smell of a McDonald's restaurant is a unique thing that often leads to cravings for a burger and fries. But the signature scent has now been bottled, with the fast food chain releasing a new range of six candles.

The company has released the collection of candles that, when burned all together, smell just like a Big Mac.

Individual scents include ketchup, pickles and 100 per cent beef, and have been launched to celebrate the Big Mac's (almost) 50th birthday.

    As you can imagine, the candle collection has caused a stir online, with many people questioning the decision and the scents.

    A few people called for there to be a fries smell, to complement the Big Mac range.

    Can I buy the candles?

    Unfortunately the candles are exclusively available in America via the McDonald's fan club website, meaning UK fans can only dream of a Big Mac scented home.
