Fragrance Friday! 57


I have several fragrances on my desk that have accumulated there for testing purposes. The funny thing is I often use a Perfume Testing Strip and sample the scent then do nothing more with that particular bottle. These bottles vary in size but most are 1 fl oz. Would you like a fun sample to try? To join in on our Fragrance/Flavor Friday all you need to do is comment here on the blog. Tell me you would like to try one and tell me the first 3 or 4 scents you can think of that are at the top of your list for sampling. I can’t promise you will get any of your requests, but I can promise a bottle. I believe I have about 30 one ounce bottles on my desk. Would you help me clear it off so I can work on new projects?

Just post your comment and Monday morning we’ll contact you for your address so we can clear my desk for new projects.

THANK YOU!

About Tina

I started thesage.com in 1996 with the help of my husband. Now I get to help people make all kinds of soaps and bath and body products. I think my favorite things to make are lip balms and lotions/creams. Of course I get most of the soap technical support questions because that is my strong knowledge area. Glad this blog is here!

    You have so many to choose from and you are always awesome at sending samples.
    As far as fragrances go I think I would like to smell Alice, Bergamot & Chamomile, Black Amethyst and Fresh Fruit Salsa. Those are just a few to start with.

    Someday I am going to add to my Essential Oil collection the oils of Bergamot, and Neroli.

    And for the Flavor Oils…I will get brave and get some Chocolate Bacon flavor. Everyone raves about it but I still cannot wrap my mind around the flavors.

    I would love to try bunches but…hmmm, here are probably some of the top ones. Autumn Afternoon, Cucumber, Dream & Endless love. I would have put one of the apple ones in there, but I haven’t figured out which I want on my wish list yet. LOL I’m kinda new to soaping, so still trying to pick my scents…don’t want lots of them, but would like a few to choose from. 🙂

    I tend to like clean scents, vanillas, sandalwoods (my new favorite) and Ambers. I just did a mix with Amber f/o, patchouli e/o and wasabi f/o. Something different would be nice, broaden my horizons!

    I would love to sample a fragrance or two! I have just bought several of your fragrance blends, but when I read the descriptions, I want to get them all!! Out of the ones I have not yet tried, Banana Leaf and Acai; Bitter Orange Orchid; Elements of Bamboo; and Hinoki Woods are the tops on my list! Also, I would love an Almond flavor oil or Passion Fruit flavor oil! You guys are doing a great job! I love your blog and your products!

    Maybe it’s because spring is coming and it will soon be time to garden, but I’ve been in a “fruity” mood lately! Scents like Satsuma, Fresh Fruit Salsa, Huckleberry, and Lemon Sugar sound really yummy right now!

    Tina, I would love to help you clean off your desk by taking one of your 1 oz samples off your hands. It’s hard to decide my top 4. In no particular order, how about Bergamot & Chamomile or Brown Sugar & Spice or Forks or Freckles. Actually anything you choose would be fine with me. Here’s hoping you desk clean up is a great success 😉 Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for sharing your samples! My list of scents I want to try is pretty long… I have been dying to smell Green Clover & Aloe for a while now after reading all the raving reviews. I’m curious about Osmanthus, and Oak Leaves & Acorns. I also wanted to try your Punch Party after trying a punch scented candle melt that has become our family favorite. I just love trying new smells. I’m sure I will be delighted with anything you send.

    How exciting! I’ve wanted to try the following scents since “forever” but they never seem to fit into whatever I’m making at the time: Hinoki Wood, Bitter Orange Orchid, Crystal Blue or Hydrogen, and Angel (no, I’ve never even smelled the original, LOL, but people rave about it.)

    Wow this is tough because you have so many fragrances that I want to try. But I would say anything fruity (like your grape or pear,etc) as I am really ready for summer here! I already love your Kalarahari Melon. I would also love to try the Citrus & Basil, or Somali Rose, or your Coconut (I was disappointed with another vendor’s). So feel free to send some cast-offs my way! Oh, but wait–I’m sure after I sample I’ll have to buy; maybe you shouldn’t ;D

    I have been itching to make some more soap. Since we are in the process of moving, most of my soap supplies are packed and moved to the new home! I would love to have any scent you want to suprise me with (I don’t like the sickeningly sweet scents). Just so I can make some soap since it’s so addicting. This way, as soon as the last box is in the new house, I can break it in with the smell of new soap!!!

    Thanks,

    Hi Tina! I’d LOVE to help you clear your clutter! I love sweet and fruity scents… but have been looking for a cleaner ocean-type scent to play with for the guys. (hubby doesn’t like the heavy musky scents that most people carry in their masculine line)

    Thanks for giving us the opportunity to try something new!

    Guess I’ll add one more since making my first ever batch of cold process soap! My Man Bar turned out AWESOME!! I’m so excited and cannot wait to make more. Thanks for such an awesome website with so many helpful pictures and explicit instructions! Also, I was brave and ordered the chocolate bacon flavor on Saturday so I’m anxious to see what that smells like. I made some coconut lemongrass lip balm from one of your recipes too and it turned out fantastic too! I don’t know if it helps, but if you choose me to send a bottle to there is a pending order you can throw it into!! 🙂 Thanks again!!
