i + w candle

ipluswcandle

i have a dog.  she smells awful 35% of the time.  it’s not my fault.  i’m not the one that instructs her to roll around in dirt and s**t (literally – wtf is wrong with her) and pine needles.  a couple of weeks ago, my lady and i were entertaining another couple for dinner and she asked me get a candle for my stinky house.  i knew exactly what to buy.

if you’ve ever been to imogene + willie in nashville, then you know it’s one of the best smelling stores around.  and the best part is that they sell their scent in the form of one badass looking candle.  i’m not gonna lie, it’s pricey at $55, but it’s well worth it.  i burn that s**t every night.  in fact, it’s burning right now.  you can order one here.  just do it.  no chick likes a stinky house.

summer scent: lacoste white

on a recent guy’s trip, a friend of mine noticed my cologne in the bathroom and asked me why the hell i used it.  it struck me as an odd thing to ask about.  i thought cologne was something that all men used.  i’m not embarrassed to admit that when i reached my teenage years, i applied cologne liberally thinking that women would smell me from a far and fall in love instantly.  i soon found out that a lot of cologne does not in fact attract women, but instead repels them.  glad i learned this lesson early in life.

i like the way cologne smells and have been looking for a signature scent for the last several years.  i tend to buy the travel sizes so i don’t have to invest in one long term.  last fall, i made the executive decision to go old school ralph lauren in the cold months (the green bottle your dad probably wore – more on this later in the year).  with that said, i want something a little lighter in the warmer months.  i’ve been experimenting with a few different brands and finally found something i love: lacoste white.  i’m not going to try and describe how it smells, because i would most likely sound like a complete douche.  all i know is that it smells like summer and that’s good enough for me.  treat yourself to a bottle.  your lady will thank you.
