Best Candles for Men
At last. A candle that brings back the mellow Sixties. Alas, it is merely evocative of the real cannabis scent and not in any way trip-inducing. A refined, herbaceous aroma. Top notes of fresh lemon and orange mingle with middle notes of fig and pepper . Base notes of oakmoss, sandalwood and amber-patchouli. Natural wax blend provides a clean, slow burn that lasts up to 60 hours.
Beware the price tag, however. The real thing might be cheaper.
Aroma: A soothing, rich ensemble that include some light citrus notes.

If you grew up in the Sixties — or wish you had — when marijuana was distributed freely and inexpensively, you may have spent more than a little time in the cozy confines of a friend’s pad, smoking a bit of good weed.
This candle will bring those memories flooding back — but without the requisite mild paranoia, droopy eyes and ravenous munchies that came with those mellow sessions.
Or you may be a current marijuana devotee, but can only score a baggie now and then. This unique candle will help bridge the gaps, even though the aroma is merely evocative of the real scent and not in any way trip-inducing.
We must mention here that the one seller from whom this rare candle can currently be purchased is as proud of it as the owner of a missing Van Gogh.
But if you can afford it, it might be worth it.
Here’s how the folks at Malin + Goetz describe this item’s key features:
“Our spicy cannibis candle lights up a room with its refined, herbaceous aroma. Top notes of fresh lemon and orange mingle with middle notes of fig and pepper, and base notes of oakmoss, sandalwood and amber-patchouli to create a powerful, lasting scent that completely envelops a space.
“The candle’s natural wax blend provides a clean, slow burn that lasts up to 60 hours. Tips from Andrew + Matthew: Our cannabis candle burns beautifully on its own or pairs well with our fresh neroli, creating a calming atmosphere. Our candles have such a clean burn that the glasses are reusable. We use ours as stylish drinking glasses at home and the office.”
