I Want My Place
to Smell Like

The best candles to bring
the outside in this fall

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If you've got a candle burning in your place, it's safe to assume you've got your shit together. You're discerning—a man of taste, who prioritizes self-care and enjoys his bourbon in the warm, flickering glow of a scented candle's flame. This fall, I want a candle that's rich and woody. Imagine a stylish A-frame cabin, tucked under a canopy of towering pine trees with a crackling fire outside. Light up one of these smoky, evergreen scents and you're pretty much there. They're the subtle, sophisticated fragrances that set the mood and convey to visitors that this is the home of a man who takes care of himself. And makes your nights at home over the fall and winter holidays all the more magical.

First time candle burning instructions

Treat Your Candle Right

The first burn is important. You want to liquefy the entire top layer of wax so that your candle burns down evenly. This usually takes about an hour, at least.
