Boy Smells LES Candle

What started as experimental candle-making in a Los Angeles kitchen has evolved into a world-coveted range of olfactory offerings that are so much more than their intriguing scents and effortlessly chic vessels. The brainchild of co-founders and real-life partners Matthew Herman and David Kien, Boy Smells’ inclusive ethos – one that rejects traditional gender norms and transcends the gender binary – means that their all-natural wax candles are made for anyone and everyone.

Taking its name from the French plural article used for both masculine and feminine nouns and the acronym of NYC's vibrant Lower East Side, the LES Candle from Boy Smells is a cross-cultural exploration of scents – one that plays with the tart tang of fresh black currant and the warm woodiness of white cedar...

Interrogating the arbitrary reasons behind our associations with florals and femininity, musk and masculinity, these candles are proudly genderless. Sure, everyone has personal preferences but the minds behind Boy Smells stand by the fact that these originate from somewhere other than our gender – we love what we love, regardless of who we are. An ode to the eclecticism of New York and the experimental individualism that the city is known for, this effortlessly cool scent captures the olfactory experience of walking through a bustling back street, taking in notes of rice powder, peach blossom, cardamom, black currant, cedar and Asian pear, to name just a few. Strike a match, ignite the wick, inhale – it's like you're there. With a burn time of roughly 50 hours, this coconut and beeswax blend is held in a glossy black vessel that's punctuated with a clean-looking matte pink label - it'll look right at home wherever you deign to display it!

Ignite, inhale, enjoy. Place in a central part of the room for optimum fragrance distribution.

Coconut and Beeswax blend with braided cotton wick, in glossy black glass tumbler.

Absolutely love this scent! Makes every room very cosy. The burn time is very good too - lasts ages.

Love Boy Smells

Their fragrances are always fantastic. Gardener is still my all time favourite, but Les is lovely in a larger room with guests over, or to make the bathroom feel more spa-like when I relax in the bath.

Hmm...

Was a little disappointed as it reminds me of a bathroom spray. Eek, wanted to love this but it will definitely be living in the toilet.

Gorgeous

So happy to see Boy Smells being stocked on CB! I'm actually yet to burn this so can't speak to the burn quality or scent throw, but the smell in the box is divine! Fruity but not in an overly sweet way, rich but not too heady - a stunning floral scent and perfect for summer evenings when they eventually arrive! Lovely jar for repurposing too which is always a plus.
