What is the world coming to when even scented candles are gender specific? We’ll tell you: a world that smells like cut grass, sawdust and leather. Oh, man.
Today reports Yankee Candle has come out with a collection of candles for men—just in time for Father’s Day. There’s First Down, a “combination of orange, patchouli, vetiver and leather”; Man Town, a “masculine blend of spices, woods and musk”; 2 x 4, like “freshly planed wood”; and Riding Mower, which naturally smells like grass. Suddenly that super-sweet rose/lilac/vanilla jar sitting on your mantel sounds heavenly.
“Men make up about 35 percent of the candle market, but there weren’t products specifically for them,” Yankee Candle’s Hope Margala Klein tells Today. “We felt it was time for men to get their share of attention.”
Thank goodness they didn’t try to bottle Locker Room.
