We know dudes aren’t rushing out to buy the latest candle, but you really should. Just like an organized kitchen, quality sheets and champagne in the fridge, candles can really impress the ladies. Let’s just say they show your softer side; light one after a long night, and serious magic can happen.

That said, we aren’t supporting the ‘Daffodils and Daisies’ scented nightmares. Let us introduce you to Sydney Hale Company. We discovered them at the Garden & Gun Jubilee and were attracted to the scent, packaging and their commitment to helping Lost Dog Rescue.

Family owned and operated in Purcellville, Virginia (the brand name comes from a combination of family names), the small batch soy candle and room spray company has been around since 2007. With scents such as Bourbon + Brown Sugar, Tobacco + Sandalwood and Woodsmoke + Amber, there is nothing to worry about when lighting one of these up pre-date or post-house party to give your pad a little whiff of wonder.

Back to their feel good factor. Sydney Hale works with Lost Dog Rescue and is dedicated to giving 10% of their sales to the non-profit. You can also purchase awesome dog leashes, collars and bowls from our friends at Found My Animal on the site as well.

We appreciate they are all about Reuse & Recycle, and customers are encouraged to send in photos of how they use the glass once the candle melts away. We think the whiskey tumbler is pretty perfect.

Will there be a season 2 of Shōgun?
Want to know if Shōgun will last more than one season?
Hiroyuki Sanada in Shogun

There aren't many shows that debut with a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, but FX's adaptation of James Clavell's Shōgun is something special. This is the second time that Shōgun has been adapted for television, and it was also a breakout hit in 1980 when it was hailed as one of the greatest miniseries ever created for TV. It took another 44 years before FX's modern take followed, but this version of Shōgun is already among the contenders for the best TV series of 2024.

Cosmo Jarvis stars in Shōgun as John Blackthrone, an English sailor who is trapped in Japan at the beginning of the 17th century. This was during a time when Japan wasn't particularly welcoming of outsiders. And once Blackthrone proved that he had value, he wasn't allowed to leave. Thus, the show chronicles Blackthrone's transformation as he acclimates to Japan and its people in a time of deadly turmoil.
