I don't need to be a man, do I?

I recently learned about Man Candles by Yankee Candle Company.

Is this a new concept?? Sorry, I don't get out much.

They have scents like:
"2x4" ~ The warm, unmistakable scent of freshly planed wood and sawdust evokes a sense of confidence and quality.
"Riding Mower" ~ Hot sun. Cool breeze. And the intensely summery scent of freshly cut grass.

Sawdust and mowed grass??? Oh my!!! Those are a few of my favorite smells, how awesome is that?!

I am definitely going to check them out.

Hey! Maybe they'll come up with a WD-40 candle!

Oooh better yet, I could just dab a little behind my ears.

:> )

Have a great weekend!!

Oh my goodness those candle names! Lol, too funny. I recall last year there was a cologne that came out for each branch of the military and some of us wives said no thank you! I don't need a cologne that reminds us of man sweat, boat funk, dirty uniforms, and that stagnant 24 hour aroma. Nope. I think for Christmas I will send my dad and brothers each a Yankee Candle for Christmas! If only they had a Mobil Oil one that would be perfect.

Hee-hee! I LOVE the 2x4 name.

"Man sweat?!" Yikes!! I would pass on that too. P.U.

When it comes to scents, I am not much of a floral kind of gal but a more spice kind of gal.

But my favorite Yankee Candle is "Christmas Wreath." I am amazed at how it smells exactly like a fresh cut balsam tree! What a wonderful smell for Christmas! Heck, all year round for that matter!

Man Candles? LOL! Talk about reaching for new markets. Having said that, my hubster likes my use of candles, some of which are Yankees.

How about gasoline scent or asphalt scent??
I love those two weird scents, they remind me of a man and Summer too!
Heehee.
Hey, maybe I should try to come up with my own.
Do you think adding a little gas to wax would work??
LoL!
Shark Tank here I come!

We call those Mandles. Kringle Candle sells them too but they are more like the smell of leather, cologne, etc.
