The Man Candles collection

SOUTH DEERFIELD, Mass.–The Yankee Candle Company has unveiled its first-ever, limited-edition Man Candles Collection, a line of scents inspired by and created uniquely for men.

“We wanted to develop a collection of scents that men could strongly identify with,” said Hope Margala Klein, senior vice president, brand, design and innovation. “Man Candles make a great gift for kids to give Dad or for that college grad moving into his first apartment.” 

The collection’s four fragrances are inspired by “hard work, fun and games,” according to Yankee, and include Man Town, a blend of spices, woods and musk; First Down, a combination of orange, patchouli, vetiver and leather; Riding Mower, a scent reminiscent of freshly cut grass; and 2 x 4, offering the scent of freshly planed wood and sawdust.

Retail prices are $2.99 for a Car Jar; $15.99 for a small tumbler and $27.99 for the classic large jar.
