Order of the Odor: Volume 6

We hope your 2015 is moving smoothly and pleasantly along. February heralds in with pink and red hearts bursting forth in store aisles. Pro-Valentine, Anti-Valentine, it makes no difference, love exists. Please answer these questions along with us!

1. What scents remind you of love? 

Adam's skin, Scarlette's hair, Savanna's toothpaste kiss, White Shoulders, suntan oil, and the ocean remind me of love. Fresh strawberries we pick in a field, orange blossoms when on evening walks that flow from behind our house from the near by groves, popcorn we share in the dimly lit movie theater, Haribo gummy bears in bed, baking his favorite oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, coffee that he brews just for me and brings into the bathroom while I put on my makeup in the mornings, the frangi pani flowers she picks for me from our yard, smoke from our family bonfires... so many scents bring me love and remind me of the love I am blessed to share.

2. What scent would you melt or what candle would you burn to create a romantic atmosphere? 

To set a mood I would burn a scent like Bath & Body Works Mahogany Teakwood or Sparkling Amber. As for melting wax, I would choose any amber scent or more specifically, Alamo Candelaria Dragonfly in Amber, Scentsy Satin Sheets or Vanilla Suede, or Better Homes and Gardens Soft Cashmere Amber.

Deb hit up her local Yankee Candle Outlet store and came home with quite an array of waxy smelly goodies. Want to know what treasures may be hiding out at your local Yankee Candle Outlet? Hop on over and check it out.

Tiffany Candles has been knocking it out of the park with her Chunklet wax tart shapes. See what amazing blends Sunnee picked up recently and her thoughts on them. 

"Rise up this morning', smiled with the risin' sun, three little birds each by my doorstep, singin' sweet songs of melodies pure and true" If you are in the mood to sing along with Bob and bring some tropical whimsy into your winter day you might want to pop this scent in your warmer like Lauren did.

Wax fiends who are bookworms understand the thrill of matching wax to book series. Julie has been waiting with baited breath for Alamo Candelaria's Outlander release and its time as come! Was it worth the wait?


  1. Your first answer brought a tear to my eye. I am so glad you have so many wonderful scents that remind you of love. You have a beautiful life rich and full of fragrance. <3

    Amber is a great romantic scent! :)

    1. I loved that you thought of this question! How lovely to ponder this for a while. I had fun with it. And of course I had to include a pic of baby Scarlette in her first strawberry picking outting. <3

      Amber... Mmmmm. When done right it is so beautiful. Plus there are so many variations! Sweet, dry, salty, vanilla, woody. Amber accords are my favorite.

  2. I can't tell which one of your girls is in the picture but the expression on her face is priceless. Love everything about your first answer! So beautiful <3

  3. Such a sweet post! Love your answers & that pic of Scarlette is so adorable!! :-)

    1. Thanks! Tami Atkins took it all those years ago. Do you ever go berry picking? I want to take the girls this season.

    2. We haven't been in awhile, but my MIL took the girls strawberry picking during spring break last year. Hoping to go strawberry and/or blueberry picking this year!
