Initially, I thought I was alone in having an unusual obsession with masculine smelling candles. You know what I mean, they smell like the aftershave of a suave businessman who opens the car door for you.
But it turns out I’m not alone - in fact, I discovered that most of the ladies in our office also share the same obsession, so what did we do? We picked out our top three ‘hot man’ candles for you, of course.
Now, don’t be mistaken. These candles aren’t just for women, they make a great addition to a man’s bachelor pad, or are a perfect alternative to sweet, feminine scents.
The Alluring Man With A Boyish Charm
Imagine Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum or Zac Efron
This fragrance comes first because it's my personal favourite. If Cyprus was a man, he'd be a well-dressed charmer in his 30s. The type of guy you might meet in a bar on a balmy Friday night who'll captivate you with his humour. If that doesn't illustrate this scent for you, perhaps the fragrance notes will.
Top: Saffron, lavender, sea salt
Middle: Orange blossom, violet, cedar wood
Base: Amber, sandalwood, moss
★★★★★ Perfect Man Scent - Chacha
"Literally needed by all the single ladies, who don't need a man, yet want that glorious "manly" scent!"
The Sophisticated Ladies Man
Imagine George Clooney, Richard Gere or Denzel Washington
Okay, two words to describe this scent - exotic and spicy. I love this complimentary scent for the boudoir or ensuite. If Cuban Tobacco was a man, you'd find him in a freshly pressed suit, drinking a Manhattan on a private yacht - slightly more mature and romantic.
Top: Tangerine, cardamom, clove bud
Middle: Clean floral
Base: Mahogany, patchouli, musk, vanilla, tobacco
★★★★★ Buy this candle right now!!! - Elliot
"This candle smells of rich mahogany, leather bound books and subtly sweet tobacco hints. I light it and leave the room only to return finding my room now smells like I imagine a successful Colombian business man would smell like. I love candles and this one is definitely in my top 3 favourite of all time! You will not regret adding this one to the collection."
The Clean-Cut Bad Boy
Imagine Brad Pitt, Leonardo Di Caprio or Jude Law
Picture Leo in The Great Gatsby - what would he smell like? Yep, that's it. This is a really fresh, clean fragrance, perfect for your living room. If French Cade & Lavender was a man, he'd be dangerous and dreamy - imagine that just jumped out of the shower
scent. He's broody and seductively intoxicating, need I say more?
Top: French cade wood
Middle: Crisp verbena
Base: Smooth Bulgarian lavender
★★★★★ The scent of a hot man - Shanthi
"I know this is probably not very PC, however, this candle is hands down the closest thing you will find to actually having an attractive, freshly showered man in the same room as you. The scent is incredibly crisp, intoxicating and simply put, you'll be hooked. I burn this in my living room in the evening. It's a great scent for larger spaces because it isn't overpowering at all. If you love a masculine, fresh scent - this is the (man) candle for you."
