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.
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.SHOP NOW
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.SHOP NOW

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.SHOP NOW
