Order of the Odor: Volume 7

Welcome to the Order of the Odor! Please join us in answering the smelly question of the month and voting in a fun blending poll, by commenting with your choices.

1. If you could create any scent blend possible, what would it be?

I would love to blend a fresh herbal rosemary/realistic Honeycrisp apple/Meyer lemon/Orange blossom honey in wax. 

On a side note: I would also die and float to heaven on little angle wings if I could get a vendor to do high-end perfume dupes from houses like- Serge Lutens, L'Artisan, Diptyque, Malle, Creed, Tom Ford. 

2. Deb, Lauren, Sunnee and Julie each picked a single scent note they would like to explore further. They then created a blend for each other using that note. Please vote for which blend in each scent category you think you would enjoy the best by commenting.

All "A" choices are Deb's Blends, all "B" choices are Lauren's Blends, all "C" choices are Sunnee's Blends and all "D" choices are Julie's Blends.

A. Sage/Mandarin Marmalade/White Tea overpour
