Make loving your identity a daily ritual 


Boy Smells began as an experiment in candle making 2015 in the Los Angeles kitchen of co-founders and real-life partners Matthew Herman and David Kien, both fashion veterans who worked in design (Herman) and product development (Kien). They began making things they’d want to use on a daily basis--products that were fluid, essential and affordable.

“We wanted to have products that were embracing masculine and feminine simultaneously in a simple and straightforward way that wasn’t overtly targeted to one gender,” says Matthew. “It’s a permission to harness your power from wherever you want it.”

Boy Smells candles are developed and designed in Pico Union, Los Angeles with fragrance, natural oils and an all-natural coconut wax and beeswax blend. They're hand poured in a reusable glass vessel and hand labeled in Los Angeles, California. 

Boy Smells aims to be an eco-friendly company with foam free packaging, minimal usages of plastics and biodegradable shipping materials.
