There are commercially available smoke candles for sewer testing and fire training. Try searching web in your area.

In future, please phrase topics as a question, as per forum guidelines - Mod

Sugar and potassium nitrate is quite easy to make and generates quite a thick white smoke, though I am unsure if the smell lingers or not.
