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.  

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

All natural white coconut and beeswax blend with braided cotton wick, in frosted white tumbler with glossy red interior. Comes in embossed matte gradient carton.

About the Designer:

Sensuous, accessible and bright, Boy Smells products elevate your intimate world. Packaged in pink and conceived beyond the gender binary, Boy Smells candles and intimate apparel make loving your identity a daily ritual.

In 2016, 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. Herman and Kien–both fashion veterans who worked in design (Herman) and product development (Kien)–began by making the things they’d want to use on a daily basis, products that were fluid and essential.

Boy Smells candles are all developed and mixed in the founders’ home in Los Angeles with fragrance and natural oils, all-natural coconut wax and beeswax. The candles are hand-poured in a reusable glass vessel and hand-labeled in Los Angeles, California.
