Order of the Odor: Volume 7

Welcome to the Order of the Odor! Please join us in answering the smelly question of the month and voting in a fun blending poll, by commenting with your choices.

1. If you could create any scent blend possible, what would it be?
My dream scent blend would be would be a pretty boring one. I think I'd love to smell a mix of fluffy and clean towels, salty sea air but without all the poopy seagull smell, bright and wonderful sunshine, grainy sand from a beach, more salt and a light lime fragrance, like that from the rim of a cold margarita. Maybe with a hint of pink sugar to tie it all together, maybe not, I'd take it either way! MMMMMM yeah!!

2. Deb, Lauren, Sunnee and Julie each picked a single scent note they would like to explore further. They then created a blend for each other using that note. Please vote for which blend in each scent category you think you would enjoy the best by commenting.

Sweet lemon bakery, strong throw, only $2.00 a clamshell? Come see what hidden gem Deb has found unearthed from an unexpected store.

If you are a candle lover like we are, you probably have noticed the price hike at Bath & Body Works. Sunnee shows us her candle collection and thoughts on the goings-on at the ol' BBW. Pull up a chair and bring your coffee and join the conversation!

With a potential Rosegirls opening looming in the near future, you want to check out these 16 sweet blends that Lauren posted from our recent Muffin Club haul. It is bound to get those creative juices flowing! 

Swing by The Redolent Mermaid to see what amazing blends Julie scored from Candles From The Keeping Room this month. You know you want to see what awesome samples Carol sent out!


  1. I want your scent now. And the scenery that accompanies it. Nondetergenty aquatics can be hard to come by. It looks like we are all dreaming if fresh and clean scents.

  2. Linen scents and water/spa scents are not usually my type but every once in a while I do crave them. Must be like a cleansing breath thing for me.

    My votes for these blends, and it wasn't easy choosing.....
    1. A
    2. D
    3. C
    4. B


  3. Your perfect blend sounds amazing Lauren. It's so close to mine but I hardly ever purchase it in wax because it's so hard to get right!

    1. (A) sage/mandarin orange/white tea
    2. (A) waffle cone/vanilla ice cream/straw rhubarb
    3. (D) serendipity/straw rasp guava/rasp coconut
    4. (B) pear/ccf/pink chiffon

    I love those blends so much I'm going to make muffins out of all of them if I can :)
