Back to candles

We've got a feel for some new scents and for our fall/winter fragrances we'll be offering this year. I know it hasn't been easy to put soap and bath bombs and lip balms aside to go back to wax, but now that I'm back, I'm enjoying the play.

One fragrance people have been raving about is powdered sugar, so we're gearing up to have it ready for the Leavenworth County fair.

I don't know of anyone who goes around opening powdered sugar bags and sniffing. This fragrance is similar to the smell of powdered sugar confectionaries, so I tried to get a lightly baked look under a dusting of white.

We've also got an extremely yumah fragrance called mandarin coconut that will be on the shelf by the fair too. We've kept this simple with an orange rustic look and the fragrance is anything but rustic. It was the easiest way to combine orange and white ;)

Coming will be an absolutely divine combination of pumpkin and butternut squash, cranberry peppermint, sandalwood and ginger apple and a clove spice for starters. Since we've been out of dried apple wreath, that will return and we're looking to add a woodland wreath as well.

For the not so seasonal scents, Guns and Roses, Serengeti Sunset, Beneath the Stars, Heirloom and Iced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are first up unless I get distracted again by several scent choices.
