The wife gets coupons from Yankee Candles all the time. Today we got the new ones in the mail. Most of their candles are a bit too intense for me, can’t handle all that “perfumey” stuff! Anyway, they have four new scents aimed at men. They are: Man Town, First Down, Riding Mower, and the one I can’t wait to smell, 2X4. Not sure I want to know what the first two smell like but the last two might not be too bad. Maybe if I hide the coupons I won’t have to find out!

They should have leather scented candles. I like the smell of leather, I have it in my car, my shower soap, and a few candles that I’ve been able to find.

I’d bet the “Man Town” scent was not named by a man.

@patcollins My first thought was that you meant paint stripper, guess I’ve been on this forum too long. Seriously though, I would like a cedar scented candle.

I will admit I grew up in Western Mass where Yankee Candles were born. I will also admit I love scented candles. Brings me back to wondeful autumn memories in New England while I was in the service.

Best scent ever to me is Yankee Candle’s Spiced Pumpkin.

I have bought from over 75 candle companies. It’s a guilty pleasure.

Personally, Candles By Victoria in Van, Texas is the best out there.

I’m 6 feet tall, 225 lbs and have a shaved head, but I know, I know….Go ahead and feel free to make fun of me now…HAHA!

No worries, Bullethead. I’‘m 6’2” 234 lbs, and I am overloaded with candles, my best buddies wife was selling partyllight candles a few years back, kind of like tupperware partys, I tried to help here every now and again so whenever she was having a party at a mutual friends house i would come with her and buy a bunch of candles from the party. I have candles everywhere in my house which we almost never light, wifes a little paranoid and will watch the candle like a vulture until she puts it out or it goes out. Literally there are boxes in my basement filled with candles that when I have people over they think I am selling them, LOL.

The problem I have with a lot of these scented candles are that most of them smell worse than what you’re trying to cover up with them! And pine scent in the bathroom just smells like somebody sh—- a Christmas tree!!

Martyroc…Jonathan hit it on the head. I by “tarts” and “melts”.....they melt in a warmer and give off a nice scent with no flame or fire hazard.

Cjwillie, you’ve obviously never had a premium wax scent HAHAA!!!!

No, I have a problem with a lot of smells like perfumes, hairsprays, and most artificial scents. A Yankee Candle store gives me a killer headache. My wife has had to get rid of a lot candles, sometimes before they were ever lit, because the smell made me sick. Sorry , Jonathon, but the watermelon candle is one of the worst for me! Funny how none of the smells or chemicals in the shop bother me. My wife thinks I’m goofy!
