Scents people have suggested to me

We've been selling our candles at the local farmer's market lately, and I've got to tell you, it's a rush to meet you fine people, our customers, face to face. You're all quite good looking, educated, and you make brilliant purchasing decisions. Your support is appreciated.

Many of you seem to think that you have ideas for additional candle scents. Sigh. Let me tell you something. I've been doing this for YEARS now, I'm pretty sure I know all of the angles. Here's a list of some of the scents people have suggested to me over the past couple of weeks.

1. Fish

2. Dog poop

3. Dirty socks

4. Gasoline

5. WD-40

6. Farts

7. Sweat

8. Skunk (Do they NOT READ THIS BLOG???)

9. Beer

10. Smoke

But at least the people who suggested those things "get it". They know we're called Manly Man Candle Company for a reason. I've also had people come up to me and ask if we have any candles that smell like roses, babies, sunshine, or love. I'll say no, of course, then they'll follow up by asking for something even more girly, like Cosmopolitans, bras, or rainbows. These people just don't get it. I have to get security to escort them off the premises.

We are, however, introducing a few new scents in the upcoming weeks. They're out of R&D and almost ready for the public. I'll unveil them tomorrow, right here.
