Smooth Lines | Boy Smells
On a recent trip to the Boy Smells’ HQ in the Pico Union area I was greeted with a world of olfactory whoas. Inside was their Wonka Factory, for the nose, a cascade of complex scents flew by. The scent journey evoked nostalgia and ephemeral sensation that gave me déjà vu for memories I am pretty sure I never had, but have only dreamed of.
Ran by business and life partners Matthew Herman and David Kien, the artisanal crafted candles are just a small part of a lucrative business that includes a popular range of gender neutral underwear produced in milky pastels. With such divine scents minimal packaging made for a chic presentation that will sit well on any table. Here we focus on the Votive Singles selection to fill you in on what scents would best fit which vibe.
