    Cedar, coffee, and new car smell would be great too

    When I read “Man Cans” I think of those big boys with C-cup tits….just sayin’.

    There’s a local company (I got the impression they’re Chemists or Engineers working in the Boston Area who moonlight doing this) that makes interesting candles. They did the whole bacon, and grass, and pipe smoke. Had a beer one that the guy openly said he was aiming for “Fresh Popped Can” and got “Frat House Basement”.

    I grabbed one that was tomato plant. Now that’s a cool smell!

    Hoppes No 9 smells like my kid’s toothpaste.

    My bride would argue for “structure fire” instead of the “campfire” candle…from the days I was a permanent fireman (yep, old enough to not be the ambiguous ‘firefighter’; we actually rode the tailboard) apparently me coming home covered with the scent of the latest smudge all over me was quite the aphrodisiac.

    My wife would HATE a Hopes no 9 candle. I managed to spill some on a couch a few months ago and still haven’t managed to get the smell out completely.

    Any candle that smells like Hoppes is going to be so carcinogenic the EPA will never let it on the market.

    Patronizing and ghey. Real men make their own stinks. Real stinks, not that fake candle crap. That’s for women. You wanna smell Hoppe’s #9? Then you get you some!

    Ancient Woodsman, I know what you mean, the smell of my dad, from back before the air cans or whatever those air breather appratus they wear today.

  14. Bill Twist Says:

    I made some candles out of a 50/50 mix of petroleum wax and beef tallow. They smell just like hamburgers on the grill.

    Beef tallow is real easy to get: When you fry up some ground beef, catch the drippings in a bowl and place it in the fridge. Then, when the top is solid, pry it off and get rid of the ‘jelly’ at the bottom, melt it again, and do the same thing again. You end up with pure beef tallow.

    Only one issue: They are soft in warm weather. To make them stiffer, go to more wax, less tallow.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
