Mac and iPhone accessory maker Twelve South is bringing back its Mac-scented candle that flew off store shelves last year. The all-new Inspire candle still smells like a new Mac but comes with some big updates to its design that are sure to delight Apple fans.

Twelve South updated the Inspire candle this year with a new fragrance formula that’s supposed to remind you of opening up a new Mac. The scent is created by blending bergamot and armoise with hints of lemon, tarragon, amber and musk.

It also comes in a new white case with smooth curves, kind of like the Mac Pro. The price tag has also been updated. Costing $29.99, it’s now $5 more expensive than last year’s version, true to Apple fashion.

Profits from Twelve South’s new candle will go in part to support FIRST, a charity that creates programs to motivate young people to pursue educational and career opportunities in STEM-related fields.
