Man Candles - No More Girly Scents


I hope this does not read like SPAM but this kid, 13, has had it with girly fragrance in the house. He fought back as a DIYer and using recycled cans he is putting manly man scents into candle form and deserves some encouragement? He gives part of proceeds to soup kitchens.

Imagine campfire, fresh cut grass, sawdust, dirt, new mitt, coffee, Grandpa's pipe, New York Style Pizza and bacon as candle fragrance? Haven't most of us had enough flowery smelling girly scent when we walk in a room?

There is actually a guy who did the same thing and he did a beer candle.
I'm not kidding.
He called them Manly Man candles.

That is actually pretty cool, and it's nice that he's donating some of the money and soup as well.

When I was 13 I was shoving foil paper in the electrical socket and playing with lighting and stuff. I probably had a bigger chance of burning the house down than he does. LOL At that age you can't just go out and buy stuff, so you compromise.

the big flaw in this business model is why would a man ever light a candle unless he was trying to get lucky? I doubt that a fish scented candle is gonna do anything but hurt his chances .......

Unless he passes gas and then lights up a candle that smells like fresh cut grass to conceal his embarrassment.
