In 2016, Boy Smells began as an experiment in candle-making in the Los Angeles kitchen of co-founders and real-life partners Matthew Herman and David Kien. Founder-invented scents like Cinderose, a union of rose and smoke, and Gardner, a compilation of tomato vine and honeysuckle, wrap traditionally masculine scents in a prettier bouquet. Burn up expectations, release clear intentions.
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. The candles are hand-poured in a reusable glass vessel and hand-labeled in Los Angeles, California.
