Look around you, does the female human you cohabit with have candles in all areas of your habitat? Or perhaps just in a couple of rooms? If the answer is yes, then we’re already on the right path. Heck, we might already be done!
OK, lets not get ahead of ourselves. As with all of the different kinds of women, not all candles are the same either. Take five minutes that you would have spent playing Fallout 4 and think about the types of scents she likes and let that lead you to the right scent.

And hey, if the gift covers up the stench of your gym bag I think we’re all winning. Seriously, though, wash that gym towel dude.
