Why Men Love Candles

There’s a common misconception that men don’t like candles, and at The Pine Door, we know that’s simply not true. Candles are typically marketed as a feminine item, which drives men to feel shame, or that it’s wrong to buy them. Or, that if they do like candles, it must be a masculine scent like ‘whiskey’ or ‘fresh mahogany.’. We know the truth. Men, you no longer have to hide from us. We are getting rid of the stigma that men don’t like candles, and we’re going to let you enjoy soft, delicious scents with no shame!

Men like nice scents. Ever heard of perfume? So why can’t men enjoy the relaxing scent of an Amber, nectarine & peach candle? Why must it be a masculine scent? There are several reasons men can and should love candles, and we’re going to share them with you.
