Summer Scents?

Nothing to exciting to report this week. I have been finishing up a large pillar candle order. I have 2 more candles to pour in Cranberry Woods scent then it will be done. All that is left and what I started working on last night is getting labels on them, pictures and then put into the cello bags. I would post a picture but I would rather wait till the client gets them first so they see them before anyone else does. Should be able to post pictures in a few more weeks when they ship out.

As far as soap goes I think I will be making a fresh batch of Forbidden Fruit tonight.
A good deal of soaping time is spent remaking batches of soap you have already been making, which means that I don’t always have fun stuff to report. Soon I will also be using all my free soap making time to label those 120 half bars of soap for the Baby Shower. So that may slow soap production some in the next few weeks.

Some new things coming up I think will be a fresh batch of Black Raspberry Vanilla, I also need to get some more oatmeal milk & honey FO in as I ran out of that soap and scent.

I have a few new scents that I have on my mind to try, one is Banana Cream Pie. Just unsure if people will want to go around smelling like pie, lol

Always the fun part of soap and things you have to consider is does someone really want to smell like this scent? Candles are easy as it is just a matter of burning it not wearing it so that opens up way more scents.

Aside from the Banana I have a few summer type scents in mind I just need to get them ordered so I can try them out.

Anyone have some favorite summer scents you like? I am thinking light and fruit type ones will be good.

One scent in particular for summer is Cucumber Melon (Brambleberry.com) melons = summer (at least in my mind) and a close second is Ginger Pear (Brambleberry.com), fruity with a hint of spice.

hmm thanks for reminding of cucumber melon I do have a fresh bottle of that in from bittercreek.com. I did make that scent in the past and it was pretty nice.
