Band of Bloggers: Vol. 6 / June 2016

Welcome to the June edition of the Band of Bloggers!
We hope you have been enjoying this little monthly conversations of ours, as much as we enjoy having them. As always, we hope you will join in this month and chat with us.

I can't quite believe that we are officially at the half-way mark of 2016. I don't know about you but the past two months felt especially whirl-windy to me. In Singapore, June is the month to slow down and relax. All the schools are out and you can almost feel the country heave a collective sigh of relief. What are your summer plans, are you doing anywhere fun with family and friends? I am looking ahead to a month of packed weekends! A good friend of mine is getting married in early July and I am going to be a bridesmaid for the first time! We just did the dress fittings and we are getting deep into the final details for the big day!

Of course, with all the rushing around and the summer heat, hydration is going to be key to keeping healthy and glowing. I drink eight glasses of water on a regular basis (keeping a huge bottle on my desk helps) and my favourite drink is an ice(cold) lemon tea! Not surprisingly, I love tea-related scents as well. I find tea scents are such a subtle way to keep the room smelling fresh and feeling cool (does that make sense?).

And so with all that rambling, my question to you is what are your favourite drinks and drink scents? Do they correspond like mine?
I loooooooove root beer. The rootier, the better. Root beer definitely corresponds into wax for me, too. I've had several root beer wax melts and most of them are amazing. I love when wax can so perfectly match its real-life smell! As far as other drinks go, I am pretty boring. I'm not a huge cola wax scent fan, but I love Coke. Water is my favorite drink, so clearly that cannot correspond. I also really enjoy lemonade, which is hit or miss in wax depending on the level of sweetness. Margarita scents are good, but only in wax. I'm more of a hard liquor kinda gal (whiskies, rums, gins, etc), and I can't recall ever trying a gin scent! LOL! What will it smell like, taters? So, it seems as if this question brings mixed results. Some drink scents are excellent, others, not so much, but they only correlate to my favorite drinks on occasion!

  1. Root beer!! I love a good root beer. But not in wax. I think the licorice note gets too much for me in wax. But it did make me think of cream soda and Butterbeer which I LOVE in wax!! I do miss a good margarita every now and then. There is gin FO. I had planned on trying it out. Most of the whiskey and brandy FO's are kinda stinky though. Great answers!!

  2. Yes! I remember The Bathing Garden has a really good root beer scent, I enjoyed that very much. I like Margarita in all forms, alcoholic and wax. Heehee! You know who does a mean alcohol scent, Two Timing Tart, she had some really amazing ones and one of them was a gin scent! Look her up, maybe? She's open again.
