Hello, dear friends! We all here at the Band of Bloggers would like to welcome you to a brand new year. We hope it will be full of good health and much happiness, and of course a plethora of fragrance.
Let's kick off the new year but asking what your fragrant plans are for 2017. Are you trying new vendors, going on a low-buy or no-buy, or planning on burning more candles? Do you dream of new wax blends, trying out incense or something entirely different? Are perfumes, indie bath and body or artisan body care on your list? Or do you plan on making your own home made brews?
I probably should be on a low-buy for at least two months, but Candles From the Keeping Room opens January 27th, so yeah. There's that. But once I melt through some of my current stash I do plan on ordering from Alamo Candelaria (missed Kyme's wax), Candy Panda, and a few other vendors. I would love to try some new to me vendors too.
As far as bath and body, I would love to order from Handmade in Florida soon, FuturePrimitive, Dirty Goat Soap Co. and Bathhouse Soapery. I am open to cruising new bath and body vendors a bit.
Perfumes from Sonoma Scent Studio, Solstice Scents, and Serge Lutens are high on my wishlist. I would love to sample other niche and artisan perfume houses as well.
Yes I am the one who wrote this prompt and incense is striking my fancy. Japanese incense and any others I can search out would be cool to burn this year for something a little different.
As far as candles I am jonesing to try out Atelier's new candles at Sephora, maybe one or two other artisan perfume house candles too (Malle? HA! I wish.) like Tocca or Ellis Brooklyn.
Whew. Boy am I ambitious. But it will be an adventure trying to say the least.
And do tell us what your aromatic plans and goals for 2017 include!
We, sadly, have had a few bloggers lay down their pens. And they will be deeply missed. However, we are welcoming some new bloggers to this motley and aromatic group.
