10 Candles that Guys Can Proudly Burn

Candles aren’t the most hirsute of things. Blame Martha Stewart, blame the mall, hell—blame witches—whatever it is, candles have cast the kind of spell on the fairer sex that has pretty much missed us guys. That’s cool and all, but since girls do tend to like them, it might be worth your while to look into some that’ll help you work some of your magic. Their packaging won’t affront your masculinity and their scents span the range—from a Mario Batali restaurant to the musky afterglow of absinthe and whiskey—here are ten candles that you can proudly burn.
