Yankee Candle Bacon and Popcorn Man Candles Giveaway

by Nicole on June 9, 2013


I love Yankee Candle and my husband thought their Man candles were really cool when we tried them.  We were both excited to hear of the addition of 2 fun new scents to the Man Candles line!

The Yankee Candle Company, Inc., the world’s largest manufacturer of premium scented candles, recently launched two new fragrances and the return of three favorites in its popular limited edition Man Candles collection. Two new fragrances, MMM, Bacon! and Movie Night™, join Man Town™, First Down™ and Riding Mower™. The collection, launched last year to tremendous response, was created uniquely for men to be enjoyed in their “man town,” whether that is the den, the basement or even the garage. These limited edition fragrances will be available for purchase starting in May at more than 557 Yankee Candle retail stores, and select specialty retailers and gift shops.


To build on the excitement around the return of Man Candles the company is running a series of social media contests beginning immediately that will run through June. The contests help consumers celebrate the new scents and honor Dad for Father’s Day:

  • Man Candles Match Game (5/13 – 6/16): Consumers will be able to play in a matching game on a Facebook tab on Yankee Candle’s fan page. The images will change weekly, and fans who play the game and successfully match all cards will receive a coupon for $5 off one Man Candle online; plus, one randomly selected winner each week will win a set of the Man Candles Collection. Fans can play the game as many times as they like; the $5 off offer can’t be combined with any other offer and is only allowed on one candle per order.
  • Famous Dads (6/3 – 6/16): Yankee Candle is asking its Facebook and Twitter fans to share what makes their dad, husband, uncle, or brother famous along with the hashtag [#dadwantsbacon]. On Instagram, entrants will be encouraged to upload a photo of their dad that illustrates what makes him special. One winner from each platform (chosen at random) will win candle(s) from the Man Candles Collection.

We tried the Bacon and the Popcorn flavors and thought both were really cool.  The bacon one really smells like bacon and my husband and stepson were all over it.  The popcorn one has a lighter scent. I enjoy food scented candles though I am used to them being dessert scents! These candles were a change from that and the men in my life really thought they were cool and fun! This would be a great gift for the man who has everything or a guy in college or recently out on his own!
