Which Is Your Favorite Scent? POLL


It's really hard to know what scent will work for people.  I try really hard to choose scents that are as close to "true" as possible when I add them to my products, but not everyone likes floral or citrus or sweet chocolate....  For instance, I am not a floral scent person even though I LOVE flowers.  Someone asked me once if I make anything in gardenia.  Well, I hadn't but I knew that it is a popular flower, so I found a delicious oil that I thought was close to being true.  So since I have offered gardenia as a scent choice in select products, I have been receiving many many letters like this:

"Received package today when I got home from work. Tore into it, sniffed it, and couldn't wait to jump in the shower.... The gardenia is wonderful! Thanks so much for letting me have a try. I think I'm addicted to your products. =P
Warmest regards,
Rachel

P.S. My best friend is equally enamored with your products. She "borrowed" my giant jar of Cream when she came over yesterday... I don't expect I'll see it again, so thank goodness I ordered more."


I like sweet and citrus scents on my body, but there are people who live for gardenia or lavender so I try to find the best of those scents.  Do you know how many fragrance oils I have here that aren't good enough for me because they are not quite right?   I have spent WAY too much money on fragrances that I don't like, but if I can create products that make one feel really good and cause the eyes to close and the nose to breathe in the good scent?... Well, then, it's all worth it.

What scents are your favorites?  You never know, I might just take your fave and create a new blend..... :)  Leave comments!!

Hi Joanna~ I love warm scents like pumpkin (read below), rich spices with apple, but also love cherry almond, & coconut has also been a fav since I can remember....

I emailed you the following comment, and now that I have been using your products, I still stand behind what I said!

Joanna-

Many thanks! What a nice surprise, when I opened my package---the divine pumpkin cream was enough to make my day....just amazing! Your products are wonderful, and smell delicious...I have been dying to use your products because there is such a buzz about them...Even though I make bath & body products, it's such a treat to enjoy others...just like when someone cooks for you, :)...

Again many thanks...thank goodness you're young, because you certainly have a long bright future ahead of you!

I love lemon, so I hope you're going to bring back the Lemon Essential. Coconut is nice. Almond too. And I just have to mention it -- Vanilla Carmels!

Vanilla Carmel sounds absolutely divine! My favorite bath scents are Cinnamon Buns & old fashioned vanilla. I also enjoy Almond. Cinnamon Almonds might be worth trying. In the Summer I still like the warm and spicy fragrances, but you'll likely find lime & pineapple scents in my shower as well

Cinnamon Buns.... with sticky frosting, maybe? I am considering almond, but the almond I have tried smells remarkably like marzipan. I don't know if people would go for it.

I love monoi tiare tahiti . It's a gardenia like scent and the oil is so soothing

Michelle said...

katibear monoi tiare tahiti is a beautiful scent!

I love florals. Tropical florals are my favorites. Florals have always been good for me in the sales department also (I'm surrounded by people who love florals I guess).

Sounds so heavenly.....

Coconut and chocolate! Definitely. A chocolate sugar scrub! I have been experimenting with making one and I am going dizzy with the smell of chocolate around my house.

I love sweet smells like mandarin EO. ooo yummy.

Freida said...

brown sugar with cinnamon with maybe a hint of chocolate

Joanna Schmidt said...

This gives me some ideas.... let me stew and we'll see the new fragrance in February.....
