Man Candles: Best. Father’s Day. Gift. Ever.


Want to get your dad the best present ever for Father’s Day? Get him a candle. No seriously, get him a candle. For the first time ever Yankee Candle Company, Inc. has released a limited edition line of man candles and they are ah-mazing. When I spotted the 2x4 man candle on my coworker’s desk I knew I had to have one for my lumber salesman father. And it actually smells kind of like him—saw dust and plywood. All it’s missing is the scent of Ivory soap.

If your dad isn’t a do-it-yourselfer like mine check out the other man candle scents available:

Riding Mower: the scent of summery cut grass 
First Down: an uber-masculine leathery smell
Man Town: a manly blend of spices, wood, and musk

Available online at and Yankee Candle shops nationwide for $3-$28 it’s the perfect last minute Father’s Day gift. 

And if you’re not sold, check out this clip from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Because, if they weren’t funny enough, he made them even funnier with the scents he created like Midlife Crisis, Minty Dorito, and more….
