Times have changed, and the preconception that candles are just for women is no longer true. Many men are now discovering and enjoying the warm glow and enriching scent burning candles can provide to their home and work spaces.


For men, burning a candle at home is often an extension of their personal taste in wearable fragrances, and with stinky gym clothes and other not so lovely man smells to cover, candles are the grown up choice for gentlemen to up-level their bachelor pad.


There are many different fragrances available that are well suited to guys, from those that feature scent notes traditionally found within aftershaves to smells that are unashamedly unisex. Tobacco, citrus, sandalwood and oakmoss are ingredients that feature within many of our bestselling scented candles for men. Many of these candles are housed within elegant, neutral packaging, making them visually look great inside a masculine decor.


In this gift guide we have explored the best scented candles for the men in your life, each featuring rich, warm and manly fragrances that’ll make them the perfect Christmas gift or birthday present for him this year.

Teakwood & Tobacco Candle by P.F. Candle Co.

This is a real cult favourite. The fragrance is sweet and musky thanks to the balanced combination of tobacco, leather, patchouli and teak. Pepper, sandalwood and a hint of orange elevate the base, adding warmth and perfectly finishing off the scent. The result is refined and sexy, without being overpowering.


Cowboy Kush by Boy Smells

This scent is akin to “enjoying a joint at a rousing rodeo.” This tumbleweed fragrance is a dusty accumulation of suede and saffron, with puffs of pot and patchouli floating through. It has some dust, it’s dry-earthy, it’s grounded. It’s a warm, well-worn saddle of a scent.


Rainbow Bar by 19-69

Inspired by the notorious Rainbow Bar on Sunset Strip, a hangout for rock musicians across the decades, the scent delivers a balmy bright fragrance that represents the sun, blue skies, and warm glow that embrace LA daily. Fragrance notes include Bergamot, Bourbon and Vetyver.


’85 Diesel Candle by D.S. & DURGA

This fragrance takes you out on the open road. It’s the elegant, robust scent of sun-drenched saffron tanned leather seats entwined with damp earth and diesel smoke. A scent inspired by road-tripping in a 1980s Mercedes Benz, windows rolled down, singing “we must never break the chain” while leaving the smell of burning fuel in your wake.


Agapé Candle by SOH Melbourne

Inspired by SOH Melbourne creator Kristine Brown’s father, the fragrance feels comforting and robust. It features warm masculine notes of wood and moss combined with an elegant rum undertone. A touch of patchouli gives a subtle freshness while warm leather notes finish it off. 


Elementary Candle by Earl of East London

The Elementary Candle by Earl of East London  is filled with tobacco leaf, amber and leather notes – giving it a luxurious, rich and intense aroma. It’s the perfect gift for those who love the grandeur of old London.


Oakwood & Tobacco Candle by Hobo Soy Candles

The Oakwood & Tobacco Candle by Hobo Soy Candles features a warm blend of smokey oakwood and musky tobacco. This bestselling scent is suitable for those who prefer a slightly more masculine scent in their home.


Man Candle by Eym

The Man Scented Candle by Eym is a beautifully layered masculine scent. Deep and earthy, this 100% natural candle features notes of lavender and vetivert. This is a candle full of woody depth and calming strength, like a sturdy hug from a beloved father-figure.


Last Light Candle by The Nomad Society

The Last Light Candle by The Nomad Society is a scent for that special moment when the sun dips below the horizon. Take time to thank the day and welcome the night. This scented candle features top notes of amber wood and moss.


HAV by Skandinavisk

This scent captures the ancient drama of the freezing North Atlantic, Baltic and Arctic seas as they crash into the endless Scandinavian coast. The perfect scent to add some freshness to the man cave.


Dusk by P.F. Candle Co.

Dusk is inspired by taking the long way home, the buzz of streetlights, everything washed in shades of blue. Dusk is a mysterious, dreamy, and captivating scent, with notes of clary sage, iris, and palo santo.


Cedar Stack Candle by Boy Smells

Featuring a warm, woodsy scent from its combination of cedar wood chips, dried tobacco, bay leaf, and crushed peppercorn. Cedar Stack is a brilliant unisex scent, a real favourite of men buying candles for themselves and for women who prefer a woody scent without too much smokiness.


Black Oak Candle by L:A Bruket

The scent of blackened oak and Nordic woods. Formulated with cashmere wood and birch to give a calming and strengthening aroma experience that brings an urban soul back to nature. A beautifully balanced scent of smokey oak – this candle is really popular, especially during the darker months.


Irish Whiskey Candle by P.F. Candle Co

The Irish Whiskey Candle by P.F. Candle Co. pays homage to barrel-aged, fine grain whiskey. It features top notes of pear, honey, and whiskey, which are surrounded by a warming base of vanilla and tonka. It is a robust and layered scent, perfect for cosying up by the fire with a glass of the real thing.
