Fried chicken specialist KFC has come up with a way to get your whole house smelling of its signature product - minus the cooking involved.

Enter the KFC-scented candle, which was launched as part of a social media contest by KFC New Zealand last week.

Unfortunately, only one such candle is available, with customers asked to suggest a new piece of merchandise that the company should come up with in order to win it.

"What better way to light up your nights than with a limited-edition KFC Scented Candle!" KFC New Zealand revealed on Facebook last Friday (Dec 2).

The winning entry - announced on Monday - was from user Shiz Irani, who said KFC should release stamps "because the Colonel always delivers".

This is not the first time KFC has come up with a fried chicken-scented product.

In August, it gave away 3,000 tubes of KFC-scented sunscreen in the US as part of a promotion for its extra-crispy recipe.

They were snapped up within two hours, USA TODAY reported.
