Order of the Odor: Volume 11

Happy Summer! We here at the Order hope your days are bright and sunny and the wax is melting in the warmers and not the mail boxes. Please join us in answering this month's questions:

If you could create any theme for a wax tart collection what would it be? What three scents would you have in this themed collection?

(Are you ready to be surprised and blown away by my theme selection?)
I know, it's not original and it's probably not a surprise, but video games are one of my lifelong passions so I decided to just roll with it. If I were truly making these to sell I'd come up with a more exciting theme name, but the gist would be the same. Now, on to three scents!
 Peachy Pink: Princess Peach may not be able to stop getting kidnapped, but she sure is gonna make sure she smells good for it! What better scent than a peach, mixed with something Pink, a dash of vanilla, and just a hint of cherry blossoms leave the men swooning for more.
 Sim-ple Pleasures: In the Sims, did you ever wonder what was in that perfume your Sims kept spritzing on to become instantly more attractive? How about a sensual combination of floral, champagne, musk, mahogany, white chocolate, and the obvious vanilla? These notes combine to paint a sweet and sultry, slightly youthful picture for those around you. Light in strength but complex in tone, this scent will help set that romantic mood.
 Days of Ark: This would be as natural a scent as I could achieve, with subtle hints of flower fields and woodsy forests. A hint of musky greens with a dash of salty ocean air. Smelling this would take you to an island, completely cut off from mankind or technology. Looking around, you might see some strange creatures. Some look friendly, some don't.What you do with them is up to you... :)
 Bear with my scent descriptions. I wanted to have fun with it.

Deb melted a tart from Dessa's recently that was so good, so strong that she is even saving it to melt and reuse again! It is a delicious fruity bakery that she thinks you need to try before she scoops them all up for herself. You've been warned.

Sunnee's Rosegirls sampler came this past month and it will full of brightly colored and highly fragrant chunks of happiness. See which ones stood out as her favorites and which just didn't make the cut. Get ready to feast your eyes!

Flaming Star Scents used to be Pic, Petals and Scents and Liz recently melted a nice huge chunk from PPS that has had plenty of cure time! So how did this old wax perform? And what has Liz been up to lately?

Subscription box popularity is going as strong as ever. Lauren bought a box recently that any waxy home fragrance lover would enjoy. It comes with three tiers of price points, amazing packaging and high quality candles to boot. Ready to be enabled?

Thirty Street Crafts creates a fun themed wax release about every month. June's release was built around a circus theme. Julie scooped up an order of her very favorite wax tart shape to date... any guesses?

Who doesn't love a "Favorites" post?! Michelle lays it out for us and lists her all time Top 5 Vendors for us and why in her most recent post. The best part? You can order from almost all of them right now!


  1. Your scent descriptions are awesome! I want Princess Peach and the Sim one. And shoot, throw in the Days of Ark one too please. I bet your gamer line would be very popular. Other than Mario I don't think anyone has really done a gamer theme.

  2. Great minds think alike! I went with a game theme too! I like your picks, even though I don't know what Days of Ark is, or is from.


  3. Cool theme, like Julie, I want Princess Peach and the Sim scents! And that is such a smart name for the Sims scent!

  4. VIDEO GAMES! YES!! I am so late to commenting, so I apologize, but awesome idea!

    Peachy Pink sounds lovely, something I would totally buy! Mmmm, days of ark, lovely!! We all had at least one earthy/air/clean scent, if I'm not mistaken!! :)
