A Rugged Candle Made Just For The Dudes
Glamping. It's real, folks. Yes, camping with a full retinue of luxe products is slowly becoming the norm for visits out into the wild. But that doesn't mean the particular brand of fashionable extras you take with you have to be the frilly kind. For a touch more light and a lot more aroma around your campsite, pack F.S.C. Barber's new Signature Camping Candle (crafted right here in NY) specially made for rugged excursions to nature. Clean burning, packed in a rough-and-tumble wood box, and poured into a durable, shatter-proof enamel pot, this soy-based mix of cypress, lime, myrtle, thyme, and cedarwood is just the right thing to cover the staleness of an old tent or cast a light that's more romantic than a Coleman lamp. While ladies won't mind the clean, outdoorsy odor, we think it's just right for dudes who might like to light one up but had reservations about the whole aromatherapy thing. Just remember to extinguish it just like Smokey the Bear taught ya.
F.S.C. Barber Signature Camper's Candle, $55, available at Freemans Sporting Club; 8 Rivington Street (at Freeman Alley); 212-673-3209. .
