Drake famously loves his bed and his momma unapologetically, so it’s only fitting that he finally release his cozy candle line on a holiday honoring mothers everywhere.

Yesterday, the rapper and budding home-fragrance entrepreneur’s Better World Fragrance House announced that they are “launching soon [candle emoji],” — Sunday May 9, 2021, to be exact, which also happens to be Mother’s Day this year. This morning, Drake himself posted a rotating navy globe that echoed a similar sentiment, and the word “scent,” multiple times.

But if you, like me, have been thinking about these mystifying candles since last year, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can secure a free Drake candle to get lit with your mom as soon as tomorrow. All you need is the Postmates app and the same taste in food as Drake.

From Friday, May 7 through Sunday, May, 9 a minimum $50 Postmates order from Champagne Papi’s favorite restaurants in NYC and L.A. will come with a complimentary Drake candle. New Yorkers can order from STK (Downtown and Midtown), Tao (Uptown and Midtown), Lavo, and Nobu (Fifty Seven and Downtown), while Angelenos have their pick of Nice Guy, Craig’s, BOA Steakhouse (West Hollywood and Santa Monica), Katana, TAO, Blue Ribbon Sushi, and Nobu (L.A. and Malibu).

According to Postmates, four scents will be available during this debut release (while supplies last): Sweeter Tings (the one that smells comforting), Williamsburg Sleepover (the one that smells like an urban garden), Muskoka (the one that smells like a cozy fireplace), and Good Thoughts (the one that smells uplifting). If you want to sniff Carby Musk, the one that allegedly smells like Drake, you’ll have to wait and see if that drops later down the line. Sunday, June 20, 2021, mayhaps?
