Two Year Anniversary Giveaway


 Two years... wow! Thank you for hanging out with me on this motley catch-all blog of mine. Meeting you guys has definitely been the highlight of this journey. I wanted to share some behind-the-scenes facts and stats with you today.
- This marks the 666th post for the blog... a little awkward, but there it is.
- As of this moment there have been 200,662 page views.
- After the US, Russia is my most viewed country source.
- Alamo Candelaria is my most searched vendor.
- There are 5,057 comments.

This blog has lead to amazing friendships, a freelance writing gig, new products to try and has been a creative outlet. I plan on trucking on for as long as it fits. If you ever have any requests please send me a message. I love to hear from my readers. 

So here is the giveaway! All of the items above and a $50 Etsy gift card. The warmer has never been used and does NOT include the tin needed to make it operate. The Olfactif box is May's edition. There is a soy candle and aromatherapy oil from a local Lakeland artisan as well as wax and smell goods.


To enter this giveaway please comment below with what types of posts you most enjoy here on The Redolent Mermaid. One winner will be drawn randomly June 5th. 

Thank you! <3

  7. Congrats on two years! Your reviews on The Bathing Garden brought me here but I'm really enjoying your perfume reviews also! It's also fun to see what other things go on in the life of a wax addict. ☺ Loved reading about your farting Adam... shared that with my Adam - we both had a good laugh!

  8. Congrats! I love your wax tarts reference page and all your wax posts, and loved the farting story. My husband also smells was without opening the bag or the cup. Why do they do this?!?

  9. Wow, congrats! It sounds like it's been a fun journey so far. It's been a pleasure to be one of the people who "met" you through your blog. I enjoy reading all your posts, but some of my favorites are melting baskets, vendor orders and subscription box reviews. I hope you continue to blog for many years to come! Congrats again on your success so far.

  10. Congratulations on your deliciously scented 2 year journey! It's so tough to pick a favorite type of post as I really enjoy them all! I've found several new favorite products and vendors because of your reviews (and of course, added several to my to try in the future list). The melting baskets are always fun, and your end of the month "highs and lows" are enjoyable. Thank you for the generous giveaway!

  12. Congrats on two years! I've tried making my own blogs a few times but usually give up after 2-3 months LOL. I love reading your wax reviews. I like the pics of the wax half melted. That's probably weird, right? :)

  14. I had this all typed out then I couldn't remember my new Google password! Oops! So anyway, I don't comment much but I've been reading for a few months now. I found you through Google when I was searching for Bathing Garden reviews and those continue to be my favorite posts from you. Your photos are gorgeous and I loved the detailed breakdown of each scent. Anything wax, I love to read it!

  16. Congratulations!!

    My favorite thing to read on your blog is definitely wax reviews. You've turned me on to so many new to me sellers. I also search for reviews on your blog before making purchases. I'm also in love with your beautiful photos!

    I look forward to reading many more years of blog posts from you!

  17. Congratulations! I love all your posts but if I have to choose it would be perfume. You've opened me up to so many new scent experiences and I'm truly grateful. I think you're amazing! 💖

  18. Congratulations! Two years is a major accomplishment, I'm too afraid to log into my blogger profile and look at all the blogs I wrote in for two months.

    I initially started checking your blog through Order of the Odor for wax reviews (some of those searches for Alamo Candelaria are definitely from me) but I actually like your perfume reviews best, I find so many that are completely new to me and we have similar preferences in scent notes.

  19. I love your recommendations and have tried many vendors you have suggested for wax and soap. Alamo was a great find (those lollipops!) Alwasys enjoy your posts.

  20. Yaa for making two yrs. One of the few blogs that I subscribe to. I was just searching your Valhalla posts. I love your wax haul posts and the few cooking posts. Congrats

  21. Fun giveaway! I switched from the Bathing Garden tarts to Lasting Scent Candles and have found my favorite vendor! My nose hairs have grown back. ;) maybe I should check Sunnee's blog, I thought she did scent strength rankings by company.

    I like posts with candid photos of your family or Tod, and gatherings or trips. I like reading about projects and your list of things you would like to do. Okay, and maybe soap. Have a good beginning of summer!!

  22. I read all your blogs and enjoy the variety. But of all bloggers, yours is the most informative and helpful.
    Through you, I have found Alamo Candelaria, Lasting Scent, Rosegirls, and Bathing Garden, amongst MANY OTHERS. Your blog on your childhood/auction brought tears, but I never let you know . . . sorry.
    Looking forward to many more years!

  25. Congratulations!

    I'm a newer reader, but I truly love your blog. I think my favorite posts of yours are the monthly Ebb & Flow posts and the melting baskets. I enjoy trying new things and supporting small businesses, so you've helped me find more things and shops to try!

    Your writing style is also unique and feels very honest, which I love. Your blog is the only one that is constantly open in one of my (many) tabs. Haha.

    Thank you for writing. I appreciate the amount of effort that must go into each post and I enjoy learning more about you.

    :) Kelly

  28. Congratulations on 2 years! I only recently started to dip my toes into the wax world, and I check your blog weekly. I love the variety of posts you have, as well as the beautiful pictures you take. I came for the wax reviews, but I actually really love reading all of the reviews, not just wax.

  29. I recently started reading the Redolent Mermaid after getting into wax tarts and googling brands to check out. I have really enjoyed reading about all these little indie brands including perfumes, which I am resisting but am slowly thinking about incorporating as another hobby collection! Congrats on 2 years and look forward to more posts.
