Smell Blood and Fear in New Resident Evil 7 4D Candle

Coming Exclusively To iHorror October 27th

Written by Shannon McGrew

Most horror fans have become familiar with the “Resident Evil” franchise, how could they not be?

That universe have been a staple within the horror genre since the video game came out in 1996 and the film in 2002. With the anticipation of their newest game,“Resident Evil 7: Biohazard”, which takes viewers into the realm of 4D entertainment on January 24, one company wants to inundate your sensed even further.

Geek merchandiser Merchoid will be releasing a Resident Evil 7: Blood, Sweat, and Fears 4D VR Candle in celebration of the latest installment.

If being virtually inside Resident Evil isn’t enough, the creators of the bloody votive have designed them in such a way to incorporate your sense of smell, giving you an enhanced experience, beyond the goggles.

I’m not sure if that’s a good thing, but I have to admit I am intrigued. The designers state that the smells will be reminiscent of “old timber, leather, and maybe some blood…” which is a step above the smell of decomposing corpses.

As for the lingering scent? The candles are designed to last approximately 18-20 hours and have a price tag of $18.99 which isn’t too much when getting a quality candle – even if it does center around death, destruction, and the undead.

Resident Evil 7 gets a reality check.

It looks like the candles aren’t on sale yet on the website, but I have a feeling as soon as they are added, they will sell out, so make sure you to keep checking back at Merchoid.

This is a must-have item, especially if you want to combined it with your gaming experience when playing “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard”.

For me, I’m just happy to see candles that are designed after our favorite horror films and characters and I look forward to continuing my own collection of horror-filled candles. It’s always a great conversation starter.
