ambrette seed, bitter orange, cassis, nutmeg, orris, musk and hazelnut 

Filled with deep desires, this scent is best described as a spiced and lustful floral tonic. Wild notes of ambrette seed, orris and musk and softened by bitter orange and cassis fruit.  PHILIA, translated as "brotherly love", is one of the four ancient Greek words for love. In this moment, it is sensual, sophisticated and gorge, producing a palpable tension between beauty and desire.  

Boy Smells will donate 10% of the sales price to The Trevor Project, the nation's leading organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth.

In 2015 Boy Smells began as an experiment in candle-making in the Los Angeles kitchen of co-founders and real-life partners Matthew Herman and David Kien. Founder-invented scents wrap traditionally masculine scents in a prettier bouquet. The candles are hand-poured in a reusable glass vessel and hand-labeled in Los Angeles, California.
