Order of the Odor: Volume 11

Happy Summer! We here at the Order hope your days are bright and sunny and the wax is melting in the warmers and not the mail boxes. Please join us in answering this month's questions:

If you could create any theme for a wax tart collection what would it be? What three scents would you have in this themed collection?

I LOVE THIS QUESTION. My theme would be one dedicated to my favorite movie, "The Big Lebowski." The three scents would be as follows (I actually made waaaaaaaay more than 3 possibilities and am keeping these in mind for the future):

1) I Am The Walrus: "crisp, salty sea air mixed with cactus and sea salt, with small wisps of lime will make you forget you're a sea animal. Coocoocachoo."

2) Careful, Man, There's A Beverage Here!: toasty, creamy marshmallow, pungent vodka and a splash of cream, rounded out by hints of coffee liqueur. Almost a White Russian, but so much better!

3) The Dude Abides: Keep your calm, man. An intoxicating, powerful blend of sweet, but musky pink sugar and soothing peppermint will make you forget her life was in your hands.

Deb melted a tart from Dessa's recently that was so good, so strong that she is even saving it to melt and reuse again! It is a delicious fruity bakery that she thinks you need to try before she scoops them all up for herself. You've been warned.

Sunnee's Rosegirls sampler came this past month and it will full of brightly colored and highly fragrant chunks of happiness. See which ones stood out as her favorites and which just didn't make the cut. Get ready to feast your eyes!

Flaming Star Scents used to be Pic, Petals and Scents and Liz recently melted a nice huge chunk from PPS that has had plenty of cure time! So how did this old wax perform? And what has Liz been up to lately?

Subscription box popularity is going as strong as ever. Lauren bought a box recently that any waxy home fragrance lover would enjoy. It comes with three tiers of price points, amazing packaging and high quality candles to boot. Ready to be enabled?

Thirty Street Crafts creates a fun themed wax release about every month. June's release was built around a circus theme. Julie scooped up an order of her very favorite wax tart shape to date... any guesses?

Who doesn't love a "Favorites" post?! Michelle lays it out for us and lists her all time Top 5 Vendors for us and why in her most recent post. The best part? You can order from almost all of them right now!


  1. Lauren!! Yours made me laugh! I totally read them in The Dude's voice. Lime with cactus and sea salt? Ingenious. His White Russian sounds pretty darn yummy. And you know how I feel about Pink Peppermint. Hey. Tell us the rest! No holding back!

    1. I am glad you liked them, lol! I honestly had 10 scents ready to go...maybe I will save them for when we do a waxy foursome and open our own shop! LOL! The white russian was one I knew I had to use...typical Dude!!

  2. Can you believe I've never seen that movie?

    And how come I'm not surprised Pink Peppermint is in there? =P


  3. I would totally buy "I Am The Walrus"! That sounds amazing!
