Tuesday Tidbits


Tis’ The Season

Here is a little info about each. Click on the names to take you to the website to order.

Baked Apple Fragrance– Apple pie; homemade cinnamon apple sauce; apple brandy; candied apples; apple fritters; apple cider…did you just get hungry??  Welcome to one of my favorite holiday smells……BAKED APPLE!!! I love the smell of apples cooking on the stove, probably because my grandmother made the absolute best cinnamon sugar apple sauce (let’s get real, it was probably mostly sugar).

Balsam Pine/Christmas Tree– Nothing is quite the same as having that live Christmas tree in your living room. The fresh tree smell alone will bring anyone holiday cheer! Welcome in our Balsam Pine fragrance. This scent is reminiscent of the best, freshest holiday tree ever. This fragrance has such a deep, rich, earthy smell I absolutely fell in love at first sniff. I can picture this as a tart/melt in my kitchen in the dead of our rainy springs here in the PNW, just to warm me up and remind me of what a late fall pine forest smells like.

Candy Cane– If you like sweet mint, you’ll love our new Candy Cane fragrance. My first impression of this, is “oh goodness, this is good.” The peppermint is there but not overwhelming; the sweet of the vanilla is there but not heavy. Just a beautiful blend of vanilla mint that will brighten any space. All this one Snow Flake, or Snow Man, or Vanilla Mint, or Peppermint Whipped Cream (one of my favorite parts about the fall…peppermint whipped cream!).

Cranberry Chutney– Cranberry Chutney has been my holiday candle of choice for the last 15 years, so of course I had to bring in a clean version of the scent. Chunky cranberries with slight spice, this would be our Cranberry Chutney.  I cannot wait to fill the space with Cranberry Chutney candles!

Frankincense and Myrrh– Frankincense and Myrrh is thought of as a “holiday” scent, but this blend is one of all-time favorites to wear all year round as a perfume. This Frankincense and Myrrh fragrance is your natural fragrance alternative to the essentials oils, as sometimes those can get quite spendy. I add a small amount of each of the frankincense essential oil and myrrh essential oil to this fragrance to enhance it just a little more.

Gingerbread– Gingerbread…that weirdly brown but scrumptiously yummy holiday bread. This gingerbread fragrance lends a crisp, bright ginger top note with a warm vanilla, nutmeg, sugar and cardamom base. I burned this in a candle in the office and the scent throw was divine!

Laurel and Cranberry– Cranberry is one of my favorite holiday scents. Cranberry Chutney (which we also carry) has been my holiday candle of choice for the last 15 years, but this laurel and cranberry blend….delicious! The smell of Christmas trees, mulling spices, cranberry wine sauce and fresh air…that is laurel and cranberry. I am going to mix the two together and make a body scrub that will make the whole house smell like holidays!

Pumpkin Spice Fragrance– Pumpkin Spice- seems like this has become the defining scent of fall in America. Everything from pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin spice beer (seriously, how did this become a thing?), you can bring fall in with this scent in all aspects of your life! Welcome to Fall!!!

Happy making!
