A new range of scented candles have been designed for men who are fed up of the feminine smells and want to get in touch with their masculine side.<br />
<br />
The products shun scents like vanilla, shea butter, and lavender often used in favour of more 'manly' smells.<br />
<br />
Some of the odours include the waft of gasoline, leather, pencils, car exhaust, wood, wet grass, and money.<br />
<br />
Other fragrances are red wine, bacon and even fast food.<br />
<br />
The 'Stinky Candle Company' is the brain child of inventor Jeff Bennett who became fed up with seeing the same types of scents on sale in shops.<br />
<br />
He began creating his own concoctions in his garage and enlisted the help of a fragrance house who supply him with specific odours.<br />
<br />
Jeff even began making joke scents for stocking fillers and novelty gifts including dill pickle, body odour, bile, and fish.<br />
<br />
His candles have now developed into a set of 25 different varieties and Jeff aspires to eventually have a 200 strong range.<br />
<br />
Jeff, who is from Chicago in the USA, said: "A lot of people I knew really liked scented candles and they loved receiving them as gifts.
