Manly Man Candles!

*bump to top* Back in December, I chanced upon something called “Manly Man Candles” at Snyder’s drug (oops – edit) Pizzazz. The available scents were cool — Alpine, Cedar Forest, Leather, Hunting Lodge, etc. I grabbed a cedar candle, took it home, and reveled in the aroma. It’s woodsy & piney — awesome. Once it burned down, however, I forgot where I bought it, so I went Googling and found the site at Manly Man Candle Company. I couldn’t find the Cedar Forest candle, so bookmarked it and sadly forgot to check back.
And then on Saturday as I was strolling around the wonderful Farmer’s Market downtown, I came across a booth for the Manly Man Candle Company! I couldn’t believe it – was this a local retailer horning in the action? Nope…the man behind the booth and I got into a conversation – witty repartee and sales gags – and I discovered, much to my delight, that the Manly Man Candle Company is headquartered and operated just up the road in Power! Yep – it’s a Montana biz – how cool is that?

Of course I picked up a few candles and promised to pimp the biz here on GreaterFalls.com; these candles are way cool, and knowing that they’re practically created in Great Falls just makes ’em even sweeter. And Brent – the owner – and his family (Paige, Mindy, and baby due soon!) have such great attitudes that it’s infectious. And another bonus: he’s got a blog (and a MySpace page and Facebook page)! Power is close enough to Great Falls to be added to the GreaterFalls blogroll, so let’s recap: we’ve got a local business making a killer product, a new blog to add to the roll, and a web-savvy & cool family to hang with.
The bottom line: go visit the Manly Man Candle Company, and tell ’em Dave sent ya!

  1. Man-scented candles are pretty cool – but a town called “Power”? That’s pretty damn cool too!

    Oh, and the anti-spam word for this post is “charlie”. How appropriate =)

  2. I think they should be called “Man-dles”, but Manly Man Candles is good too 🙂 They sound great and I plan on stopping by the Farmer’s Market to pick up a couple.
    Thanks!
