Some men think that candles are not really for them, and these men are really missing out. Trendy men know that today they have a word of choice when it comes to quality candles. Some of the best candle manufacturers in the world are creating candles for men specifically, with masculine scents, attractive masculine packaging, and great design. If you’ve always associated candles with flowery, feminine scents and pink candle wax, it’s time rediscover today’s world of candles.
Today’s best candle makers are going after the male demographic aggressively and are creating masculine candles that men love. These candles come with no-fuss, tough-guy, very masculine designs and wonderful fragrances that aren’t too sweet or too girly. The Archipelago Bergamot Tobacco candle, for example, is scented with tones of citrusy bergamot and rich tobacco for an exotic scent that’s sure to please. Quality hand poured wax and premium fragrance oils mean that the candle requires no fussing and no hassle, while the minimalist packaging fits in well with even the most confirmed bachelor’s pad. The Dayna Decker Mahogony Candle is another masculine hit, with tones of tobacco flower, cloves, rosewood, Tonka bean and fruit. The macho all-black packaging is anything but feminine. The Delirium & Co. Suede & Smoke has notes of tobacco leaves, moss, papaya, tea and green manda. With a dark striped box and a black glass jar, it looks chic and masculine in every room.
Maybe more men are buying candles for themselves because they realize that they have to start being nice to themselves. Yes, men try to carry the world on their shoulders, but sometimes they need to unwind, and a candle is a great way to do that. Maybe it’s just that men have become hip to the importance of a good home atmosphere. The busy executive and the relaxed dude both need a haven from the world, and a candle can make that haven smell and look great.
Then again, maybe men have discovered just how potent candles can be while entertaining. A sure way to impress a special date is with a candlelit talk or dinner and candles set the mood and the lighting for romance by combining a wonderful scent with low, flattering light. Women have known about the seductive powers of candlelight for a long time, but maybe the secret is now out.
