Man Candles - Original

Makes Scents

"Why don't people make candles with scents that everyone likes?" 15-year-old Hart Main asked, sniffing at the overly perfumed candles his sister was selling for a school fundraiser. Recognizing the opportunity right under his nose, the young entrepreneur combined his passion for helping his community with his interest in making a bolder breed of candle by donating to local soup kitchens and using the empty cans to hold his extraordinary scents. Hart and his family collaborate with local chandlers to craft soy-wax-blend candles that possess the kinds of familiar aromas that no man (or woman) would turn their nose up at. Hart's current lineup includes natural, nostalgic and savory scents like dirt, fresh cut grass, sawdust, campfire, pizza, and coffee. Each comes individually packed in a gift box. Handmade in Ohio. The wax is a 100% renewable resource, a soy and vegetable wax blend.

Handmade Recycled Made in the USA
Made from
100% recycled paper label stock, fragrance, tin, cotton, soy wax, coconut oil, colored pencil
Measurements
3.5" H x 2" Dia.
Notes
Candle will get very hot while burning, do not touch can while lit. Keep away from flammable materials, never leave burning candle unattended.
Each candle has a wax color unique to its corresponding scent. New York Style Pizza has red wax, Fresh Cut Grass has dark green wax; Dirt, Coffee, Sawdust, and Campfire have tan wax.
Please note: because of the use of natural ingredients such as soy wax and coconut oil, during the summer months, these candles can get warm in transit and the wax may become very soft or in some cases may melt. In most cases, you should be able to put the candles into the fridge or freezer and still be able to use them. Please keep in mind that if you put them on the radiator or in direct sunlight the wax could become very soft. Please store in a cool place when not in use.

I saw a segment about the young man who makes these candles and donates the proceeds to charity. Great kid! So when I saw Uncommon Goods had them, I decided to try one out. The scent I have is Campfire, since I miss going camping in the cold weather I thought this might be comforting, and it is. I love the smell, which is reminiscent of lapsang souchong tea. It lasts a good long while, and being in a can is a stroke of genius.

Good cause, good candle!

I bought the pizza candle for my son's 17th birthday. I thought it was a very cool idea, and couldn't wait for him to open it. Imagine our horror when the candle smelled not like pizza, but like toes. Burning it did not produce a pleasant pizza aroma either.

      Appropriate candle for my husband because he loves to garden. We couldn't believe how much it smells like dirt (how did they do that?).
      Fun and unique...will be a conversation piece for sure!

        A non-girlie candle for men friends - quirky, unique gift. The name says it all - Man Candle. Presented in a can - no girlie wrapping! And women will like it too.

                        The product was supposed to smell like sawdust. It didn't smell anything like that. It smelled like very bad cologne. Very disappointed at how much I spent. Had to throw the candle out.
