Yankee Candle releases Man Candles that smell like sawdust, freshly mowed grass, and other very masculine things
When writing this post we were first concerned that the term "mandles" might confuse readers into thinking Yankee Candle entered into the men's summer footwear category. Alas they are not -- they've released a collection of limited edition home fragrances branded as Man Candles with soon-to-be classic scents like:
Riding Mower: "Hot sun. Cool breeze. And the intensely summery scent of freshly cut grass."
2 x 4: "The warm, unmistakable scent of freshly planed wood and sawdust evokes a sense of confidence and quality."
And who could forget?:
First Down: "This combination of orange, patchouli, vetiver, and leather is as exciting as game day."
According to the press release, these "down-to-earth fragrances" can add an "attractive scent" to the "garage, man cave, or an entire bachelor pad." Hooray!
We're still questioning whether the collection is actually meant to be a gag gift for dad with the fast approaching Father's Day on the horizon but who could blame us when CollegeHumor put out this video for "the man in your life who already mans everything" in 2008:
Ah, if only the folks at Yankee took note of the undervalued scent of Hardware Store... mmm ....
The Man Candles collection is available at Yankee Candle store locations starting at $2.99 for a car jar size.
