    Thanks for that – I thought your list looked familiar.
    And you know we are still open in Grandview, right? We are down next to the movie theater, just south of Jeni’s and Stauf’s. Not everyone knows we relocated.
    Enjoy the candles!

    Yes, I know exactly where your store is located in GV. And I will be visiting very soon. Thank you for the great scents.

    I know this is half in jest, but we deal with this “smelly candles are only for chicks” nonsense all the time.
    Here is the reality – your place already smells like something. It might be black cherry, or it might be last night’s chinese, or maybe just loneliness and mildew, but there is a scent to the spaces where you work and live. Why wouldn’t you want to make conscious decisions about which scents you want? You already spend time picking wall colors and pillow/rug combos that work with the wall colors – why isn’t scent one of those interior design elements you consider?
    OK – climbing down off the soapbox now. Thanks for listening.

    I actually bought many soy candles from your store in GV before it was destroyed in the fire. Thanks for all the great scents.

    I remember that fire. Smelled like patchouli.

    Young Entrepreneur Grows ManCans Nationally
    By Walker | May 25, 2011 12:30pm

    A few months ago, ManCans caught some attention on the Columbus Underground messageboard. This new local candle company is the creation of Hart Main, an eighth-grader in Marysville who decided to take an early plunge into entrepreneurialism.

    Looks like Goliath caught wind of this, oddly similar scents too…

    SOUTH DEERFIELD, Mass. – On Tuesday Yankee Candle unleashed its latest fragrances, and they’re not your typical spices and flowers.
    The “Man Candles” collection features such manly smells as “Riding Mower” which is described by the company as: “Hot Sun. Cool Breeze. And the intensely summer scent of freshly cut grass.”

    I applaud Hart for his business savvy and have bought a few of his candles. I have also purchased similar male oriented scented candles in NYC going back 8 or 9 years ago (my mother loves candles, I like to get her different scents at holidays). The scented candle for a man is really not that new and I think Yankee Trader is not stealing an idea but seeing a profit margin in what was a more niche area.

    Young entrepreneur — Hart Main, 17, owns successful candle business

    When teens want to earn extra cash, some will get a paper route or mow a neighbor’s lawn. Hart Main chose to start his own company. The goal: buy a $1,200 bike to compete in triathlons. So in 2010, at the age of 13, Main established ManCans, a candle company that sells “manly” scents — in a soup can.

    Over the past five years, ManCans candles have gone from being made in Main’s kitchen and sold to family and friends, to being made at Beaver Creek Candle Company and sold in nearly 150 stores across the United States. ManCans also has donated thousands of dollars to soup kitchens. To date, Main’s company has given 100,000 cans of soup and $35,000 to 25 soup kitchens in four states.
