Getting a whiff of Yankee Candle’s line for men

The Yankee Candle Company is one of the biggest manufacturers of scented candles in the country. That’s probably because almost everyone has a mother that they need to buy last-minute gifts for. While classic scents like Aloe Vera, Peaches & Berries, and Carrot Cake are quite popular, there has always been an underserved demographic that the company wanted to tap into: the 50 percent of us with XY chromosomes. That’s why Yankee devised a line last year aimed directly at the interests of dudes: the Man Candle series. Joining scents like Man Town, First Down, and Riding Mower this year are two new options: MMM, Bacon! and Movie Night. Surprisingly, still no Hockey Bag or Pizza Box Mold options in the works, but one can hope. So what do the new scents smell like?
