retail news in context, analysis with attitude

You can stop doing your Fathers Day shopping right now. The Yankee Candle Co. has the answer.

The Boston Globe reports that Yankee Candle "is unveiling some new offerings for its Man Candles collection, including one that is redolent of bacon and another that emits the fragrance of movie-house popcorn."

Man Candles were first introduced last year, with scents that included "'Riding Mower, which features the intensely summery scent of freshly cut grass,' and 'Man Town,' which is supposed to buck up a man cave with 'a masculine blend of spices, woods, and musk'."

Is this a great country or what?
