Video of the Day: Scents that Make Sense for Men?

By Debbie Schlussel
Some smart marketer at GodTube, a Christian website, sent me this video with the message:

For the manly man in your life.

I doubt I’ll be doing that, since the odors in these candles sound like they’d make me sick (except, perhaps, the “leather”-scented candle). It reminds me of those jelly beans a few years ago, with flavors like “booger” and “vomit.” Uh, no thanks. I really don’t thinks these appeal to men . . . at least, not the kind of men I like.

They were mostly funny. Gave a good guffaw on several. I took them as a jab at both super macho types and the artsy-craftsy-Martha Stewart-votif candle crowd! Not a bad production, really…surprised it was on the God Channel.

No one could do without the Duct Tape scent.

I figure if they were to make “Islamandles” they would need to have the following scents:
Sweaty fal=lafal Ass
Scud underwear
Camel Ass
Skank in Hajib
Sheiite in your Muslim pants
