#ManCandle: Prospector Co. BURROUGHS FLAME

This is what I consider a "Man Candle." There is a market out there for people, like myself, who are looking for non-fruity/flowery scented candles. Candles that have scents that place you next to an open camp fire, remind you what your leather baseball glove smelled like, or that familiar smell of tobacco. I'll be sharing in my hunt for Man Candles through this blog and in doing so I'll start with one that I've actually tried.

I purchased the Burroughs Flame candle from Prospector last month while at Stag in Austin. I didn't really have a choice, once I got a whiff of it's familiar scent I found myself lost in memories of campfires and bonfires. Folding chairs filled with late night conversations and belly laughs, catching up and sharing stories. It's been burning in my bedroom ever since. 

Check out the description from the Prospector website:

The scent of Burroughs Beard Oil is infused into this candle, making for an aromatic room filled of freshly chopped forest woods, a dusty carpenter’s workshop and the deep leathered richness of a cobbler’s apron. The scent is classic and masculine and not to be confused with the scent of a beard.

Hand-poured with pure essential oils and quality fragrance oils with smooth vegetable wax blend. Reusable sturdy glass tumbler, great for added whiskey sipping warmth.

You really can't get more "Man Candle" than that.
