There’s nothing like a scented candle to make everyone around you wonder how many cats your really have. It seems like autumn is the time for scented candles, with every company pumping out their seasonal flavors (Pumpkin Butthole, Dead Leaf Breeze) and preparing for the holiday season (Peppermint Dick, Burning Church). But what if this year, you could make your house smell a little more like, we don’t know…Lemmy? Thankfully, in honor of the 40th anniversary of their classic album Ace of Spades, Motörhead have announced an obvious product tie-in: scented candles.

Motörhead have teamed up with the Evoke Candle Co. to create an Ace of Spades tribute candle. Emblazoned with the band’s spade logo and the line “Born to Lose, Live to Win,” the candle reportedly smells like whiskey, seemingly in the hopes of reminding users of the aroma that comes when Lemmy sidles up next to you at The Rainbow.

“Exclusive to Evoke Candle Co. and available for pre order now and shipping in late October, our candle has a smoked whiskey fragrance – of course! – and features the iconic ‘Ace of Spades’ artwork, along with the Lemmy’s immortal words ‘Born to Lose, Live to Win,'” reads Evoke Candle Co.’s Facebook post about the candle, “making this a great keepsake after your candle is spent. All orders will come with either a black matte candle snuffer or wick trimmer free, as our gift to you.
“Crank up the album, make yourself a Lemmy (whiskey & coke) and fill the air with fire ‘n’ whiskey (using the candle of course!) – because ‘that’s the way we like it baby!'”
