A 13-year-old boy from the US has launched his own line of scented candles meant for men, with fragrances that include bacon, New York-style pizza, sawdust and the smell of a fresh leather baseball mitt.

Hart Main, from Marysville in central Ohio, said he got the idea for his "Mancans" when he was making fun of his sister for selling candles with girly scents for a school fundraiser.

Columbus station WCMH-TV reported he launched his company last Thanksgiving, making the candles using scores of empty cans from soup he donated to a soup kitchen.

Hart says so far he has sold 500 candles for five dollars each, both online and at local stores. He said he has made enough profit to buy himself a nice bicycle.
