Scented candles aren’t the most manly home accessory. That is, unless they are made from Kentucky Bourbon. Then, even the grizzliest gent can feel good about getting some ambiance going at his pad.

Enter Chicago Candle Co. The folks behind this local start-up create their scents based on wines, cocktails, and spirits—and they hand-pour their soy wax into cut and polished wine bottles recycled from local bars and cafes.

Their Kentucky Bourbon candle has notes of oak barrel and spice. An added bonus: Next time someone shows up at your house and the place reeks of whiskey, you can just blame it on your candle.
