Order of the Odor: Volume 12

Hello! This is the 12 installment of the Order, which means we have reached our one year anniversary! We all hope your summer is winding down beautifully and many happy memories have been made. Please join us in answering the question of the month:

What were some of your favorite scent experiences this summer?

My favorite scent moment happened at Blue Moon Elise in Murphy, North Carolina when I opened the door to that soap shop and pure peppermint eucalyptus heaven engulfed me. My mind calmed, my breathing came deeper, my heart slowed, my skin tingled. Other favorites were: the little campfire the girls made by the cabin, the cool mountain air early in the morning, the Hansel & Gretel candy shoppe, suntan lotion on beach trips, and the whole Le Labo store experience. 

The Bathing Garden has some seriously ornate wax tarts and if anyone can do them justice, it is Sunnee. Hop on over to her blog to read all about her latest The Bathing Garden order and see which ones stand out. And oh happy day!!! The Bathing Garden is open and has been open for orders for several months now.

Liz at Furianne found a lost waxy treasure and melted it recently. Check out what gem she found that is STILL performing after over two years old! 

Want the Bath & Body Works candle experience without the Bath & Body Works price tag? Deb hauled a few candles that fit the bill and will fill her home with fall cheer this year. You will want to read this!

Lolo gets to smell with the Rock is cooking... whenever she wants. And if you want to smell it too, as well as look at his cutie pie mug all over a candle... you must see what Lauren has recently acquired. Get ready for fits of "I NEED THAT!"

Candles From The Keeping Room recently moved over to Etsy, temporarily, and Julie placed an order on the first opening there. Read all about how the ordering process went and the abundance of scents she picked here. You can tell she went wild!

Michelle recently received and reviewed a Super Tarts sampler. Her precise descriptions and on point nose will leave you scouting for some of these scents. Find out what sampler she got and her thoughts on it. 


  1. Peppermint eucalyptus! I don't like melting it because I have treasured memories of spending time with my mom that I don't want to mess up. Isn't that funny how sometimes our favorite scents can end up becoming so associated with certain memories we don't want to smell it anymore?
    It sounds like you had a very exciting summer!

    1. I know what you mean! I won't get certauin perfume dupes because they remind me of specific people or moments. I did have an exciting summer! I hope you had a good one too even with the move and all. Dying to read about your soaping experiences!!
