For the manly man who loves: That classic smell of bergamot and oakmoss. (Trust us, it's a thing.)
If there's a universal truth about guys, it's that they need to have a place to call their own. When they're married, it's a Man Cave, and when they're single, it's the bachelor pad.

This candle from Manly Indulgence has "the scent of spicy bergamot combines with earthy oakmoss and a hint of geranium to perfectly embody the cultured man who lives his life on his own terms."

For the manly man who loves: Cheap cigars and expensive leather.
If there's one company that clearly understands the scents that make men stop and take notice, it's Candle Theory. That company has engineered three scents marketed towards the more manly candle aficionados, and you have to admit, they know men. These three candles offer up scents of Cuban cigar, Spanish leather, and crackling hearth. Now, it's not entirely necessary to light all three and position them around a room for maximum manly musk, but it's not discouraged either...
