For that perfect romantic evening, when you’ve lost the will to live.
That explains the pineapple chunks…
While I make soap and am entrenched in the world of soap making enthusiasts, many of whom use this scent… I’ve never been swayed. Even when using my actual monkey soap mold.
Actually, “Monkey Farts” is a blend of banana/vanilla. Got some wool wash from Luxe when they were going for my son’s wool soakers. It’s not so bad. name sucks, but the smell is pretty nice
I’ve smelled it and it is lovely, I just can’t bring myself to put it on a label. Caramelised banana just sounds less… juvenile and OH MY GOD I’ve just realised I’m old-fashioned!
Any day now you’ll be waving your cane in the air and yelling at the neighborhood kids to get the hell off your lawn.
Welcome to the club. Hope you like playing bridge.
I already do that. Those neighbour kids, being happy. Not on my watch!
I do love sherry. That possibly should have been a good indication…
I don’t play bridge, but I do play canasta. Does that mean I can’t join?
Note: I have a history of shaking my cane at college students if it’s any help.

Well, maybe it would looke better if you spelled caramelized right? Just sayin…… ;P
I did. We New Zealanders don’t spell things the same way you do. We have an aversion to the letter ‘z’. It makes us extra special.
Don’t feel alone Orange…we on the “Big Island” across the creek have an aversion to the letter ‘z’…but then, like you Kiwis, we’ve retained the proper use of the Mother Tongue…>.<
I will accept all the teasing you can throw at me, when I utter that phrase… you know the one, ‘fush and chups’… and I will deserve it, in that case.
But, I love it when New Zealanders say “Fush and Chups”! I love our Kiwi cousins! >.<
I prefer boyfriend’s tongue but to each their own.
Must be tough to dislike “Z” in New Zealander; must be a lot of self-loathing.
Xd Touche, bro!
Are you new?
It would “looke” better?
God, I love seeing Muphry’s Law in action.
I’m sure Murphy loves seeing Muphry’s law in action too.
Yeah the scent is nice but I’ve never been a fan of the name either. That and bunny farts/poop, because the best way to entice people to buy a scented candle is to give the impression it smells like animal shit:-p
I was looking for a wet scrotum scented candle but this could do…
I’ve used it in kid’s soaps, bath fizzies & lotion and called it Tutti Fruitti. There is an actual thriving market for the original name.
Yeah, I’ve seen this sent in every candle maker’s shop. I tried “monkey burps” just based off the description and… eh. Not a fan of the fake banana thing anyway.
If I squint at this photo and then back away from the screen, and shut off the computer, it looks like $8.00 is too much for a stupidly named candle.
These are great in the kitchen–in the bath I use the Lioness Dysentery scent and for the bedroom, Disemboweled Kangaroo.
I’m thinking about trying the Rotting Rhinoceros candle in my youngest son’s room, because few things, if any, would smell worse than his sweaty gym socks and.. whatever the fuck those other odors are.
Have you checked under his bed? If he’s anything like my sons were, there’s probably at least a months worth of unwashed shirts and gym shorts under there.
As a former teenage boy, my guess is sticky and crusty sweat socks
When my son’s room was at its worst in terms of deadly funk, I found an “odor absorber” thingy (that looked kind of like a papier-maché pie plate) to hang in his closet. He was not amused, but it did make going into his room slightly more bearable.
I know you like to think your shit don’t stink…
You’d be surprised by how popular this scent is. It’s the only one I sold out of at a craft fair recently, selling bath bombs. Repeatedly people were all, “Monkey Farts? That, I have to smell”. It’s a tropical kind of scent that gets sold as a fragrance oil.
Same thing happens with scents like wasabi and pizza and bacon… I still can’t bring myself to go there… I am a wimp.
This shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
What’s depressing is the fact that, I immediately thought when seeing that, “That name is familiar, but I think it was a lip balm. I wonder if she did that one.” I was kind of excited because I would have in fact seen crap before it was on Regresty. But no, the seller doesn’t, so I did an search for it. There is eight pages of banana scented crap on etsy. Eight pages.
I understand your excitement… Monkey Farts is one of the fragrance oils I have that I use for bath bombs & bath salts. At a craft fair recently, I found myself thinking to call it something else, something classier. It was lucky I didn’t, as it was my big seller. Dragon’s Breath, something which sounds far more exciting as well as having a much more complex scent? Nope, failed to attract interest.
My 8 year old begged me for a “Monkey Fart” flavored lip balm at a craft fair recently. As we walked away, without purchasing it, I thought it seemed like the kind of thing that would grace the pages of Regretsy if some Etsy “craftsman” (that’s a loose term), thought about it hard enough.
What’s invisible and smells like bananas?
Monkey See, Monkey Fart.
Still better than monkey doo.
So there is the monkey covering eyes, one covering mouth and one covering ears. Now there is a fourth pinching his nose closed.
Since when did smell start being part of the hear/see/speak no evil group?
What did you think the evil thing was that all 3 monkeys refused to acknowledged?
Where’s the unicorn fart candle in rainbows and glitter?
I bet they smell AMAZING.
It smells like peppermint and bubblegum.
And children’s dreams.
Sold out. Etsy bought them all for the office.
I feel compelled to create this immediately. No lie.
I will love you forever for that BEP reference, HK.
I am sorry, but there is no way I am going to light a monkey fart.
“Curious George and the Candle and the Loud Noise” is the book right before “Curious George Goes to the Hospital” in the series.
I thought it was “Curious George Discovers the Wonders of Methane” followed by “The Man in the Crispy Black Hat Goes to Court-Ordered Anger Management Classes”.
Sounds like something Doctor Zaius would keep in his lavatory.
AAAAAND now I have that Simpsons Planet of the Apes musical song in my head.
Can I play the piano anymore?
Of course you can!
Well I couldn’t before…
I don’t care how many degrees he has. He’s still a damn dirty ape! Put a wick in that and light it!
it’s just a typo, you guys. it should read:
Monkey farts? Scented candle!
I can think of a few people that this would make a FANTASTIC gift for…
WHO IS EDITH PEEDOFF?
Helen, do you really have 2 interns now?
Monkey Farts isn’t bad, but do they have one in Kitty Farts?
My cats butt smells like roses…
I would buy that just to drive my husband crazy. I’d light it 5 minutes before he got home and watch him tear up the house.
They have “Kitty Queef” scented candles. I’m not sure if that’s more or less appealing.
Dog Farts would clear out a room, at least my dog’s does, and she’s the size of a cat.
Hmm, I’m detecting notes of egg, broccoli, and… what is that? Ah, sewage.
The flea market we went to when I was kid had a booth that sold “pussy” scented incense that my younger brother was fascinated by. It just smelled kinda cinnamon-y, but marketing is everything I guess, and they had a corner on 10-year-old males.
Sadly, I’m old enough to remember “pussy” scented incense…
OMG you guys I’m sitting on a goldmine. I thought of it after eating red beans and rice.
I can’t really blame the seller. Monkey Farts sounds much more charming than the actual description of all simian gas, “Eye Searing Ass Weapon”.
I find this entire discussion tiresome. And insulting.
Sheesh… it was a joke, son. Because I’m a monkey. (See my avatar?)
I thought it was funny.
They don’t understand me either.
Hmmm there is a saying in Finland.
So what does it mean?
In Germany, we have a type of pastry called nun’s farts, which sells really well around carnival. I guess I prefer the monkeys …
Oops, I was trying to reply to Petja – “shit sold”, does that mean “stupid stuff sells well”?
I have a lovely jar full of tomato jam, which is delicious. Unfortunately, the manufacturer (a friend of mine) chose to label it “Toe Jam” as a joke. It is red. I cannot touch it, even though I know how yummy it is.
Egads! When I saw the picture I thought monkey farts must be some sort of wacky “Chinglish” style mistranslation, but now I learn it is in fact a real scent that people actually sell. The world is a stranger place than I thought it was.
Imagine the incredible gift set you could make if you combined this with the “clam” scented pillow!!
