Love the smell of lumber or freshly cut grass? A new line of candles can bring those scents to life right in your home while hitting a demographic typically ignored by candle companies: men.
Yankee Candle recently released a collection of four original "Man Candles": First Down, Man Town, 2 x 4, and Riding Mower.
First Down ("combination of orange, patchouli, vetiver, and leather") hits your nostrils like your local shopping mall’s Wilson’s Leather outlet. Man Town ("masculine blend of spices, woods, and musk") is the musk that I imagine Jack Palance would have worn. “2 x 4” ("freshly planed wood") smells of elegant sawdust. At the same time, Riding Mower ("summery scent of freshly cut grass") is a mixture of pine needles and a well-maintained supermarket.
According to the article I read, the overwhelming favorite amongst men is Riding Mower.
“It smells like someone cut grass in here,” said one bachelor. “It reminds me of my youth, throwing a Frisbee and feeling invincible.”
Be sure to put these candles on the list for that hard-to-shop-for male in your life!
