The Indian-origin scent of Nag Champa has landed alongside other “manly” smells featured in a range of new soaps meant only for guys.

U.S. entrepreneur Adam Anderson developed ManHands Soaps in his kitchen after he realized he was sick of lathering himself with supposedly feminine aromas like lavender and lilac.

“I went to wash my hands and noticed all the girly scented soaps we had around the house. I thought to myself, ‘This is not how a man’s hands should be smelling,’” said Anderson, 27, according to a story in the Sun newspaper in England.

So the native of Nebraska set about creating a range of 20 different soaps, including bonfire, bacon, beer, urinal mint (yes, urinal mint) and Nag Champa, which according to Wikipedia, is an Indian fragrance containing frangipani and sandalwood. Other soap scents include fresh cut grass, muscle rub and cash.

“I sat back and thought about what were some of the world’s favourite smells? That is when ManHands Soap started to come alive,” Anderson said.

He started selling his creations at craft shows near his home and now offers the full range online.
