While everyone from Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update to National Public Radio has been abuzz about Yankee Candle company’s new Man Candles line, the only thing I can think of is how many handmade candle sellers already have lines and/or candles for men, available online. I myself already own a leather-scented candle by Milton and Margie’s Soy Wax Candles. At most Chicago-area craft shows I also find myself drooling over Bonnie handmade skin care’s line of male-oriented candles called Clyde (cute and clever name, right?). Bonnie’s Clyde candles range in scent from cedar and lemongrass to vanilla oak. Just a couple companies to keep in mind as Father’s Day approaches!
