A man cave is all about ambiance: comfy couches, the right TV setup, low lighting and most importantly, a manly scent. No, not like that. We’re talking essential oils.
Essential oils like cedarwood, ginger, vetiver and patchouli are typically favored by men (okay, women too) because of their distinct musky, rugged and woody characteristics.
These scents – commonly used in cologne – are strong enough to freshen up any space, without feeling too feminine or flower-y.
Whether you’re into masculine scents or just shopping for your guy, we’ve put together our go-to list of essential oils that are man cave approved:
Midnight Jazz. Smoky wood top notes are blended with earthy patchouli, cedarwood and a subtle hint of jasmine for a sexy fragrance that taps deep into sensuality. For date night at home.
Back to Black. A warm, earthy blend of Indonesian patchouli, lavender and fir needles with endless healing benefits for the body and mind. For getting in touch with your inner zen.
Russian Roulette. The rich and intoxicating aroma of bourbon, fresh pine, smoky wood and amber sets the tone for a relaxing night at home. For poker with the boys.
My Way. Sandalwood, warm Virginia Cedar and smooth Tuscan leather create a relaxing atmosphere that helps restore your inner calm. For watching your team play.
Midnight in Paris. A vacation for your mind. Lemon, spicy nutmeg and amber come together for a bold, tantalizing scent. For when you’re feeling rundown.
Happy scenting, fellas!
