Christmas Gift Guide: MANdles to keep the men in your life happy this Christmas

Cinnamon and Ginger Candle
You heard it here first (or perhaps you didn’t, it’s not a new trend): candles are not just for the women in your life! That’s right, this Christmas treat your other half, your Dad, your friend, or any man in your life for that matter to one of our ‘MANdles’ - trust us, he’ll thank you for it…
“Candles are not just presents for colleagues or friends when you don’t know what else to get them. They’ve become room scents and wonderful perfumes, which enrich your home. And now men have caught on to them: ‘’mandles’’ have been specifically created for men, with male-oriented scents.”
