Drake is giving free candles to people who order from his favourite Toronto restaurants

Anyone planning to buy a meal from a Toronto restaurant through Uber Eats this weekend just might get something extra with their order courtesy of the city's favourite rapper, and there's a good chance it'll smell like a summer holiday in Muskoka. 

Drake is launching a set of four different scents through his highly-anticipated new candle company Better World Fragrance and, in honour of Mother's Day, people who order from a list of his favourite Toronto restaurants from Friday, May 7 through Sunday, May 9 will receive one free of charge. 

Residents simply have to have a meal delivered from Shoushin, Sushi Masaki Saito, Tachi (Assembly Chef's Hall), Sotto Sotto Ristorante, Pai, Byblos, Mamakas Taverna, Bar Koukla or Cactus Club Cafe through Uber Eats to receive one of the coveted candles, and orders must be a minimum of $50.

People in Toronto who are lucky enough to receive a candle while supplies last will get one of four scents:

  • Sweeter Tings: "A fragrance that is nostalgic and addictive with the subtleties of comfort and goodness."
  • Muskoka: "The smoldering warmth of burning woods and golden embers. This is a warm and woody fragrance that emulates the feeling of being cozy by the fire."
  • Good Thoughts: "A bouquet of rich florals surrounded by a vibrant bright light of freshness for a captivating positive energy."
  • Williamsburg Sleepover: "A gender-less and luminous fragrance that captures the essence of an urban garden under shaded lights. Seduction in a candle."

Drake has been teasing the launch of his new company for quite some time now, including by sending scented candles as gifts to Toronto Raptors players while they were in the NBA bubble in Disney World last year.

The candles also made their public debut through a product listing on perfumer Michael Carby's Revolve page roughly five months ago, and the "limited sneak peek" included all four candles in the Uber Eats promo as well as the Carby Musk candle — which apparently smells just like Drake himself.

And while there had been no word on when the bougie candles would officially go on sale to the public, the scent series is officially set to launch on May 9 and will be sold at KANDL Artistique in Toronto.
