Let's Get Lit

The L.A.-based founder of candle line Boy Smells is in town this weekend.

The downside of staying at your boyfriend's place: maneuvering the less-than-sparkly bathroom and finding the cause of that unidentifiable man aroma.

Make one of those struggles easier with candles from Boy Smells. The yummy smelling line was created by St. Stephens grad Matthew Herman, who's also a designer for Nasty Gal. Herman blends beeswax and coconut wax with studly scents, then pours them into glossy black tumblers for macho style and fragrance. The scents come in floral, fruity, herbal and woody, so there's an essence for every male or female nose. Brighten up the air with PRUNUS, a lusty blend of vanilla, fig and yuzu, or ignite something woodsier with ASH, a smoky mix of firewood, charcoal and palo santo. Herman's in town for a trunk show at ByGeorge South Congress this Saturday, November 26, from 12 - 4 p.m.

Like a moth to your flame.

The Boy Smells collection is available at ByGeorge.
