Still, men have a sense of smell, just like everyone else, and there's no reason a guy can't put on some relaxing music, fire up a badass candle, and get his relax on.

If you see a manly candle (or MANdle, as they're often called) that looks like it'll make a great addition to your basement, or bathroom, or bedroom, or whichever room you want to smell like a man of good taste, go ahead and vote that baby up so readers can see which of these supremely manly scents are the manliest of all.

For the manly man who loves: The sultry sniffs of whiskey and tobacco.
There are two distinct scents that have always been associated with men: whiskey and tobacco. Even if you don't drink or smoke, there's a good chance these two scents will put you at ease — so long as you're a dude. Northern Lights packaged this impressive blend of manly scents in a 35-hour candle. It even sports a natural cork top, which makes it look manlier than those glass jar things found all over the place these days. Someone comes over and sees this burning in your man cave, and they know they're in the presence of a real guy.Buy on AmazonDude-approved?

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...Buy on AmazonDude-approved?
