Until now, it was a commonly held belief that backpacker’s cologne was just an acrid mix of woodsmoke, canned chili, and bourbon. Looks like the world was wrong. Backpacker’s Cologne is actually a unisex fragrance inspired by winter days spent foraging for wild mushrooms and exploring the secret Redwood canyons of Mt. Tamalpais. In other words: Redwood needles, Douglas Fir pitch, sea grass, etc.
Breaking Bad had to end. Luckily, you now have HBO’s True Detective. But before every loser on earth starts claiming superfan, you need to own this one.

Even though these candles from Baxter of California are called the Ash Series, they don’t actually smell like ash. Inspired by a cozy campfire, the scents are cedar, pine, sandalwood and cade. You know, trees. Nothing un-manly about burning a candle that smells like trees.
