Boy Smells candles
Boy Smells candles
Packaged in pink and conceived beyond the gender binary, Boy Smells candles make loving your identity a daily ritual. Boy Smells candles are all developed and mixed in the founders’ home in Los Angeles with fragrance and natural oils, all-natural coconut wax and beeswax with 100% cotton wicks. The candles are hand-poured in a reusable black glass vessel and hand-labeled.
Cedar Stack - cedar, labdanum, juniper berry, sawdust, and white musk
Cedarwood chips and dried tobacco are slightly smoked with bay leaf and crushed peppercorn to create a warm, woodsy smell. Log cabin living.
Cinderose - rose, tuberose, oakmoss, and smoke
Inspired by the floral photographs of Gregory Crewdson, Cinderose exposes the sinister side of the familiar. Notes of rose, orange blossom, and jasmine are mixed with smoke, cedar, and birch tar to create a scent both beautiful and troubling.
Gardener - tomato, petitgrain, white tea, and honeysuckle
Citrus groves and tomato gardens give vibrance to this scent of flora still clinging to the vine. Dominant notes of orange tree bark, tomato juice are rounded by drops of honeysuckle nectar.
Kush - cannabis, suede, white musk, tulip, and amber
Green, bright, and a wisp of delicate floral. As the cannabis flowers and brushed suede warm up, the amber accord grounds this dank and intoxicating scent. A perennial favorite.
LES - black currant, peach blossom, jasmine rice, cardamom and white cedar
In the French language, LES is the plural article used for both masculine and feminine. It is also the acronym for one of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods — picking up on notes of rice powder, peach blossom, cardamom, cedar and Asian pear, to name just a few of its many notes. All in all, this scent is an unexpected, non-binary, cross-cultural, olfactive exploration — embracing the eclecticism that is the Lower East Side.
Mssr. Blanchy - ginger root, peppercorn, grapefruit and leather
Named after French colonist Paul Blanchy, the expat who made fortunes exporting peppercorns from Vietnam in the 1870's. A bold journey through spicy ginger, fresh cut grapefruit, and tanned leather. Complex and adventurous.
Petal - tree flowers, rose, sage, and patchouli
Magnolia, night–blooming tuberose, and purple geranium float you away while golden amber and exotic musk bring you back to earth in this hyper floral concoction.
Prunus - oakmoss, fig, plum, vanilla, and yuzu
Oriental notes of yuzu and Asian plum play dominant roles to create a fruit forward scent. Grounded in earthy oakmoss, it remains feminine and lush.

Here are some tips to keep your candle burning clean and almost soot-free! Why almost? Because soot has, and will always, exist...in fact it's the soot particles that make a flame burn yellow.
1) Trim the wick to 1/4" prior to lighting
2) Burn no longer than 4 hours at a time
3) Replace the candle when you're down to the last 1/4" of wax
