“You see a lot of vendors are now making scents that definitely have a more masculine appeal to guys. We look for flavor notes like tobacco, leather, and mahogany that are very rich. We tend to shy away from anything that’s too floral or fruity, but fortunately there are a lot of great options that do cater to this more masculine, brooding aroma. Le Labo is a great one in terms of different flavor notes. Incense is another great alternative to a candle in terms of being stronger and fill the room more quickly. I think Blackbird does a great incense.”
