Anyone for a Man Candle?

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 14 - 2013

As you gently sashay through the sweet-smelling wafts of Lemon Lavender, Midsummers Night, and White Gardenia in your home… do you ever ponder upon what your fella is missing out on?

Well, wonder no more because Yankee Candle have brought back their much-talked about Man Candles with a Man Candle II collection.  But what new scents have they introduced that could possibly entice our men-folk into splashing the cash on home-fragrance, I mean… let’s face it, it’s not on the top of their list of priorities is it?

yankee man candle bacon

Genius.

Who doesn’t like bacon?  (Apart from the bazillion vegetarians around the world OBVIOUSLY).  I’m seriously hoping that the Movie Night candle smells nothing like the movie-nights we have chez Lipglossiping because I almost always burn the popcorn and trust me, there is no worse smell on Earth than seriously charred kernels.  Heck, I’d need a dozen Bacon candles to mask the smells created by my kamikaze microwave.

And just in-case they’re not willing to lay down the pennies on a full-size jar, these man-scents are also available as in-car fragrancers.  A wave of processed-pork under your nostrils each time you jump in the passenger seat?  Oh, you ladykiller you!  Possibly, quite literally.

I can only see these on the U.S. pages for now, but keep an eye on the UK Yankee Candle website where they should be turning up to join the other Man Candles available.

    How bloody strange!
    My hubby to be actually loves the fruity ones.
    Favourites in our house are the Black Cherry, Black Coconut and Pineapple Cilantro.

    I’d like the Movie Night version, not sure about the Bacon as it could make me hungry!

    Btw best purchase I made in a long time has been a popcorn maker! It was cheap (like 10£) and no more burnt popcorn for me. You can add your own seasoning so you can make an healthier choice as well 😉

    I’m not one for floral fragrances myself and skip over the typical ‘girly’ fragrances for more green, woody, and some would say masculine ones…. but this is a step in the wrong direction! I don’t really have faith that Yankee Candle have actually captured the aroma of bacon :p and if they have, I’ll need to stay twice as far away!

  4. Wow! Forget the man! I would LOVE that movie night candle. I want it.

    Ohh I think I need the movie night candle! The irony is in how much my boyfriend loves the vanilla cupcake one haha x

    I seem to be drawn to bacon but that also makes me think about eating it…not a good thing!

  7. Hilarious – man candles! Unfortunately mine thinks candles are women things and the only thing he likes about them is the FIRE FIRE FIRE aspect. Meh, might buy them anyway just to try 😉

    Wow, that’s a great idea other than being hungry more often. At least they don’t have gym scented.

    huh, quite funny idea, but I guess my husband would not prefer this one over rose scented one.
