I know that when I come in from a long bike ride or an afternoon doing yard work, I am not at my most…let’s say “fragrant.” A quick shower and a load of laundry tackles most of the problem, but there is that occasional lingering odor that needs to be dealt with. Typically, I will use a candle, but I also like this spray from Sydney and Hale which can clear the air, so to speak, for my loved ones.

The Room Spray is made from organic sugar cane alcohol. With a range of manly scents (Wood Smoke and Amber; Bourbon and Brown Sugar; Eucalyptus and Sage), you can feel pretty comfortable giving your closet, man cave or bathroom a spritz without it smelling sickly sweet.
If you think your space needs something a little more long-lasting, you can try one of their soy-based candles. They feature two wicks and an estimated 50 hours of burn time.
I always pictured a pop-up shop as a temporary selling outpost set-up in an empty storefront in a hipster neighborhood. I didn’t expect to find one online – much less at Nordstrom. So I was surprised to learn that the company is curating a series of month-long product offerings not available in most stores.
Their product choices this month are overwhelmingly foreign-made, but we found a few American-made gems that guys will enjoy. All are available through April 17.This ceramic flask from Misc. Goods is a real looker, with a smooth black surface complemented by leather and gold-toned accents.
Want your place to smell manly, but not in the sweaty-shirt-and-ripe-sneakers kind of way? This woodsy scent from Sandoval combines essential oils of cedar wood, oak moss, sandalwood, and vetiver.
This handsome deck of playing cards, newly designed and printed on high quality card stock, can be purchased with or without a wooden carrying case.
There’s vinegar and then there’s Noble Tonic Vinegar, made with maple, bourbon and a hint of sherry-infused oak.
Want to try a practice that dates back to the 17th century? Sip on one of Strongwater’s fruit-and-herb-infused “shrub” concoctions as a daily tonic or add it to your drink for extra flavor. You can also use them to marinate food or dribble over your salad. Try Persimmon & Lavender, Cherry & Thyme or Ginger & Pear.
