Man Candle on Shark Tank
|Johnson Bailey with His|
Original Man Candles
Duck Fart Candle's
The Original Man Candles come in scents ranging from popcorn, draft beer, pot roast, the golf course, a basketball court, football and the most famous, the fart candle. Yep, no doubt about it, all Man Caves should have smells resembling these manly aromas as evidenced by his $53k in sales last year. If you want to keep the Lady's out of your Man Cave, then I believe these candles just might do the trick.
Johnson Bailey came in the Shark Tank looking for a $50k investment for a 25% stake in the Man Candle Business. The Shark's had no interest in any of the candles with the exception of the fart candle that has the potential to be a great gag gift.
Even in the manliest man caves of caves, why would you want it to smell like a sweaty basketball court? At least the fart candle could serve to clear out a room if ever needed. Needless to say, none of the Sharks seemed interested investing $50,000.00 in the candle business for any amount of equity.
Original Man Candle After Shark Tank Update

There is a few lessons to learn to start with a theme when introducing multiple products to your line. With such a variety of products and no focus on a general theme is what may of ultimately ended the Man Candle Business. Had Bailey changed his marketing strategy and chose to promote his most popular "fart candle" and then build a Brand around what was selling, he might still be in business.
The Man Candle's is one of the very few businesses that seems to have completely collapsed after their appearance on the Shark Tank. Sometimes even being featured on the #1 Business Show is still not enough to make it a success even with all the publicity. Fortunately, this is a very rare occurrence for any entrepreneur to fold up shop after being on the Shark Tank and not take advantage of the ongoing publicity for appearing on the Show.
Hopefully, we will be doing another update for Johnson on his next business venture that will become a true success story. Sometimes your first attempt may not lead to the success you hoped for but what matters the MOST is you get back up and try again.
