Boy Smells Reviews
"We’ve been obsessed with Boy Smells since Kush — a weed-inspired scent that somehow smells way better than your college dorms — so we knew we’d love its limited edition holiday releases just as much. As deliciously fragrant as they are photogenic (the dusty pink label against a cherry red jar is so satisfying), we can’t get over the woodchipper-meets-mulled wine scent of Cedar Stack."
"This company launched just three years ago, but there’s no doubt you recognize that colorful square label. Its unique scents, like this top-rated cannabis flower one, definitely make an impact when lit in any room. Not into the kush? Boy Smells has plenty of other botanical, floral, fruity, and woody fragrances."
"Boy Smells is one of those brands that's always selling out—and for good reason! The brand's aesthetically pleasing packaging and reasonable price point make this purchase a no-brainer."
"The candle we called the next status candle is sure to please even the most discerning giftee. While you really can’t go wrong when it comes to picking any of its scents, former Strategist senior editor Margaret Rhodes is partial to the St. Al, which has notes of sandalwood, clay, clove flower, oud, and ylang-ylang."
"By offbeat Los Angeles brand Boy Smells, which focuses on masculine scents. Described as a ‘modern, smoky scent’, it’s made of the essence of dry hay, firewood, smoke and charcoal, with notes of juniper berries. It smells like that slightly sharp, addictive, smoky scent of a bonfire. The juniper makes it smell like pepper, pine cones and freshly-cut grass. Reminds me of summer nights and crackling campfires. It’s much nicer than sniffing the embers of a fire. "
"The candle brand of partners David Kien and Matthew Herman, Boy Smells deals in the more sensual, intimate side of room fragrance. Developed in their Los Angeles home, the candles are made from natural coconut and beeswax. Our pick is St Al, a base of sandalwood with exotic florals, frankincense and ylang ylang."
"This candle by gender-fluid brand Boy Smells recalls the smell of that most potent weed beloved of rappers from the West Coast. Regardless of your own stance on the old wacky tobaccy, it’s an immensely inviting scent that blends balances out the aroma of cannabis with suede, white musk, tulip and amber."
"Don’t be put off by the images of unwashed clothes and dirty plates that the words “boy smells” might bring to mind: this Los Angeles-founded brand is all about creating scents that are neither masculine nor feminine. LES is the perfect example, as it’s named after the French plural article that’s used for both men and women. It smells fruity and ripe, with blackcurrants and peach blossom, plus cardamom and cedar for warmth."
"The original Kush candle was actually the first-ever Boy Smells product, and it continues to be the brand's top seller, thanks to its elevated take on cannabis-inspired fragrance. It combines notes of cannabis flowers and tulip with brushed suede and amber for a grounded, warm, ever-so-slightly floral scent."
"Set the vibe for your next yoga practice or meditation session with this blended beeswax and coconut wax candle with a braided cotton wick. It comes ready-to-gift in an embossed matte pink carton and once the scent of cannabis, suede, white musk, and amber burns, the glossy black glass tumbler is reusable as a chic desk accessory."
