Order of the Odor: Volume 5

This month we are doing a mini version of some of our waxy favorites of 2014, please let us know what some of your favorites were too!

Most Comforting Scent:
It's a toss-up between my all-time favorite, Front Porch's Pink Peppermint, and newcomer Lake Providence Lodge's The Lodge's Kitchen (spoiler, read below).

Best Spa/Fresh Scent:
Tiffany Candles' Pink Sugar Rosemary Mint. So refreshing, so clean, so wonderfully amazing!

Most Energizing Scent:
Rosegirls Alice in Wonderland, Front Porch's Pink Peppermint (yes, again, seriously, I never get tired of it), Candles from the Keeping Room's Serendipity Marshmallow Delight, or iheartwax's Blonde Moment.

Favorite Bakery Scent:
Either Up The Creek Scents' Raw Cake Batter (lick the air good) or Beezy's Toasted Marshmallow, which is so totally not bakery, but close enough, right?

Favorite Fruity Scent:
iheartwax's Pomegranate Rosemary Mint, blended by my lovely friend Deb, or 

Favorite Wild Card Scent:
Sniff My Tart's Cake Batter Fudge Wildberry Mousse Vanilla Waffle Cone. A mouthful to say, but one of the best things I melted this year. I received it from a SMT mystery bag and it did not disappoint! It doesn't get much more wild card than a mystery bag!

Favorite Scent Trend:
I feel like cotton candy frosting and watermelon were both huge scent trends this year, so I will go with that! Pink sugar is pretty much always popular somewhere and that's one of my favorite blenders, too.

Husband's Favorite Scent:
Anything with apples and spice. He loved the apple clove butter mentioned below, as well as a couple of other apple/cinnamon/celtic moonspice blends this year!

Husband's Least Favorite Scent:

Stinker of 2014:
There were a few, actually. Orchid Lake Candles' Watermelon smelled like chapstick and straight-up wax. Orchid Lake Candles' Lemon Lavender smelled promising on cold sniff, but was weak. Candles from the Keeping Room's Ambrosia had almost no scent whatsoever. As far as stinky goes, I melted a couple of smelly coffee and caramel scents, but can't remember off the top of my head who made them.

Favorite Scent of 2014:
Beezy Tart's Apple Clove Butter, for sure. UGH. So amazing!

Have you been curious about the Yankee Candle Scenterpiece? Deb shoots straight from the hip on this review of Yankee's newest warmer. See if you need to put it on your wishlist or not.

Grab a napkin (to wipe the drool from your chin) and a cup of coffee and head on over to Sunnee's place to see what outstanding muffin blends this gal ordered and photographed for our veiwing pleasure. Oh! Bring a pen and paper too, you are going to want to write these down.

The best scent of all time?! Yes, of course it has earned a coveted 10/10. Come see what is making Lauren go gaga from a relatively new vendor.

Black Friday Deals abound! See what Julie's favorite haulage included this year in wax. It was a steal of a deal.


  1. Nice picks. I'm surprised Pink Peppermint wasn't your favorite of the year. And no mention of zucchini anywhere? Or are those just too obvious? lol


  2. Writing a few of these down. Especially that SMT and Tiffany's blend. Yummo! Sunnee gifted me in Apple Clove Beezy and I am so excited to try it!
