Not your Mama’s Air Freshener

Thursday 23 May 2013 - Filed under Fragrance

Since my husband’s and son’s birthdays are two months apart, and Father’s Day is right in the middle, I couldn’t resist the new “man cave” product from the Scentsy Fragrance company. It’s a combo pack of fragrant waxes which are, shall we say, rather unusual: Cold Pizza, Smokehouse, Burn Rubber, Cola, Woodshop, and a golf fairway smell-alike. Dad was not overwhelmed. He says pizza belongs on a plate, and this fairway smells like a mud hole. On the other hand, Jay thinks they’re awesome! I like Cola, Woodshop, and Smokehouse best, and let’s just say Burn Rubber is really a stretch.

They’re no longer available. Dad says, as for Father’s Day, they’re truly a gag gift. Jay, on the other hand, is stocked up for the future.

    Dad’s birthday and Mother’s Day were often close together, and when Mother was alive, we celebrated them both on the same day. Dad’s favorite cologne was Brute, and I always bought that for him as a rule, either for his birthday or Father’s Day. This year, the drugstore didn’t have Brute so I got Dad Old Sice which was Bill’s prefered fragrance. Those smells certainly bring back memories.
