Yankee Candle Goes Manly

I like to keep up with the trends that the big companies set or follow in the bath and candle industries.    Most of the time, I am not usually impressed.  It’s often what everyone else is doing, and I like fresh ideas to talk about.  I was particularly interested to see that Yankee Candle is offering some manly scented candles for Father’s Day.  I really like the names.  Take a look…

Yankee Candle Goes Manly

Riding Lawnmower – Hot sun. Cool breeze. And the intensely summery scent of freshly cut grass.

First Down – Game on! This combination of orange, patchouli, vetiver and leather is as exciting as game day.

2×4 – The warm, unmistakable scent of freshly planed wood and sawdust evokes a sense of confidence and quality.

Man Town – Escape to the man cave with this masculine blend of spices, woods and musk.

Since my husband is not the least bit interested in candles I thought that perhaps this would be a flop.  However, my brother is a candle burning fiend.  Maybe they are on to something here.

Did it give you any inspiration?  I know I got an idea involving a 2×4, the scent of Home Depot, and some soap.  Too bad you’ll have to wait until I return from a 2 week hiatus in Atlanta to see my idea in action, but I will definitely make this a reality when I return.  Too much to do before I go.
