natures garden, weird scentsWeird Scents and Unique Fragrances: Katie Smells

We’ve got weird scents to smell and fun fragrances to sniff as far as the eye can see (as far as the nose can.. breathe..?). As you may remember from a previous post, I have smelled them all. I already told you about my top ten favorite scents (more or less) and now I bring to you some of the Weird Scents and Unique Fragrances of Nature’s Garden.

weird scents, dill pickleDill Pickle – An NG Original!

Smells just like a pickle. I’m particular to the sweet variety of pickles myself- sweet on sweet pickles- but I cannot deny that this smells just like a dill pickle. Fun fact, I did not learn until embarrassingly late in life that pickles are just pickled cucumbers. We’ve got all kinds of cucumber fragrances if you’re interested in the lil green things BEFORE they’re pickled. I’m really not sure what else to say about this fragrance. Buy it for the dill pickle enthusiast in your life!

weird scents, garden dirtGarden Dirt – An NG Original!

Why you would want to smell like garden dirt is beyond me, but this fragrance oil smells exactly like that. Maybe you’re a gardener and you want to come in from gardening and wash your hands of the dirt, but retain the smell..? Maybe you want to make a candle that smells like garden dirt so your whole house can smell like your garage or a home improvement store? Or trick outdoor plants into growing inside your house? Cover yourself in the smell of garden dirt to more easily make friends with wild plants? Eh????

weird scents, hayrideHayride

Does not smell like horse poop! When I initially saw the bottle for hayride, I was nervous because I generally associate horses with a stinky smell. But here’s the thing- on a hayride- the horses just keep walking- so you don’t have to smell any droppings they may leave behind! Just stay away from the horse. Compare this fragrance to a horse-drawn hayride through the crisp fall air and you won’t even be able to tell the difference. You can smell the fresh hay.

weird scents, leather jacketLeather Jacket

It really does smell like a brand new leather jacket. I’ve never owned a brand new leather jacket- I got my mom’s hand-me-down from when she was Sandy in Grease in her high school production- but I’ve walked into stores where they are selling new leather and stuck my face in to smell that smell. Smells good. Makes me wanna join a greaser gang and sing “Summer Lovin’.” (Those dudes were crazy to wear leather jackets in the summer; get the smell without the unnecessary extra body heat!)

weird scents, moneyMoney – An NG Original!

Money can’t buy happiness, but you can use your money to buy our Money Fragrance Oil. Insert lyrics to your favorite song about money here. My personal favorite is Say Anything’s Punk Goes Crunk cover of ODB’s “Baby, I Got Your Money.” Most of the lyrics are explicit but I can say “Baby, I got your money; don’t you worry.” And we do! We’ve got the fragrance oil you need to make your house/hands/body smell like you’re made of money. Spend a little money now and you’ll be able to trick people into thinking you have all the money in the world! (Or that you’re a banker! Or that you work at a mint!)

weird scents, new carNew Car Scent

Don’t you wish you could bottle that new car smell? Here it is- another one of those fragrances where you spend a lil money on a bottle of oil to feel rich beyond your wildest dreams! (That may be an overreaction but I’m 23 and I’ve never had a new car in my life. This is my first ‘real job,’ and I am smelling the heck out of it.) And guess what? We’ve got a recipe for a room spray that you can use to freshen your car and make it smell like new! Trick the dealership into thinking you’re still under warranty!

weird scents, peanut butter cookiePeanut Butter Cookie

What’s weird about a peanut butter cookieI don’t know, dear reader, but something about this scent just really pulled me in. We’ve got plenty of other bakery fragrances, but this is our only fragrance with peanut butter. And it really smells just like a peanut butter cookie. Boring, I know, I say that for every entry, but that’s why they’re on this list. You walk up to our fragrance bar, see the name of a scent, go “whaa?” pick it up, and it smells just like the real thing. It’s weird. Peanut butter cookie!

weird scents, colaweird scents, buttered popcornButtered Popcorn and Cola

These are actually two separate fragrance oils: Buttered Popcorn and Cola. I put them together because they emulate the experience of going to the movies. You can’t really have popcorn without a drink–your mouth would get all dry and salty. Yuck. How can you enjoy the movie when you’re thirsty? Plus, you get the sweet taste of the cola and the salty, buttery taste of the popcorn. What a great combination! (I personally prefer rootbeer, but cola seems to have more appeal to a mass audience.) Don’t eat fragrance oil; make your home smell like a concession stand!

weird scents, whole wheat breadWhole Wheat Bread

Trying to smell like you’re eating healthier? Then our Whole Wheat Bread Fragrance Oil is for you!  Or maybe you wanna combine fragrances to create a sandwich scent. Here you go; here’s the bread. We’ve got five other breadrelated fragrances (including Gingerbread if you count that as a bread), but this one takes the cake.. er.. loaf. The others are sweet, fruity* breads and this is just straight up whole wheat. (*Zucchini is a fruit- I looked it up.)

weird scents, baconBacon

That’s right, I’m putting it in another list; bacon. Sweet, savory bacon. Did you really think I could make it through talking about interesting, unique, smells-like-the-real-thing fragrances without mentioning my beloved bacon? We’ve got a tomato leaf corriander fragrance, if you want to use it with bacon and whole wheat bread fragrances to make a BLT fragrance. Oh, bacon. You understand me. And ya smell so good! We’ve got an awesome recipe for bacon candles. BACON!

Thanks for reading!

You really didn’t have to, but I appreciate it immensely. Weird scents is subjective- maybe your idea of weird is different. Come smell with us if you feel so inclined; we’ve got over 800 fragrances!

Katie’s Favorite Scents

This entry was posted in candle fragrance oils, candle making supplies, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Katie's Favorite ScentsKatie’s Favorite Scents: Katie Smells

Today I visited our store on the southwest corner of Whitehead and Route 18. We have over 800 fragrance oils at our fragrance bar, and I smelled every one. Every. Single. One. All for you, dear reader. So I could tell you about my top ten favorite scents – Katie’s Favorite Scents. (I’m Katie; hi!)

BACONBacon

I bet you can figure this one out. We have a fragrance oil that smells like sweet, savory baconIt doesn’t smell like REAL bacon, I’ve heard people say, but it comes pretty darn close. The only way it could smell more like “real” bacon is if it were an actual bottle of bacon grease. But who’s using bacon grease to make soap or candles when you can use bacon grease for BACON?! Man, I really want some bacon. If you want soap or candles that smell like bacon- this is your best bet.

Berry Bewitching BrewBerry Bewitching Brew

Fun to say, even more fun to smell. Berry Bewitching Brew is full of fruity fragrances that are not overpowering- a hint of woodsy musk serves to balance the scent. Fruits in this fragrance include peach, apricots, and blackberries. This scent makes me think of a secluded house near the woods with the windows open. Perfect to use in homemade soap or candles if you have such a house. Or if you don’t, you can let it transport you to a place of peace. Almost like magic.

Iced PineappleIced Pineapple

Speaking of clean, fruity smells, how about some pineapple? All the smell of fresh pineapple without having to do all the work of cutting an actual pineapple. It may seem a little tropical or summery, but this scent smells great year round – like a vacation for your nose! This is another one of those mouth-watering scents that you’ll just want to bite into–but please don’t. If you feel so compelled, go out and by fresh pineapple, or canned pineapple.

Pumpkin Apple ButterPumpkin Apple Butter

Let’s face it, unfortunately, summer is over for soap-makers and it’s time to start making soap that will cure by the Fall. Fret not, readers – I have found yet another delicious scent, but this one embodies autumn: Pumpkin Apple Butter. Do you like making baked goods with pumpkin? How about apple? How about butter? How about the smell of those delicious treats together?? No need to stick your head in the oven, this scent smells just like Grandma’s kitchen during dessert on Thanksgiving.

NG Baby Graceful TypeNG Baby Graceful Type

As a former professional sitter, lemme tell you, babies do not always smell great. In fact, they rarely do, if ever. NG Baby Graceful Type smells like the babies that dreams are made of. It’s fresh and clean with a hint of fruit and sweetness. And look at how cute that baby is in the photo. She’s a butterfly princess! What a sweetie. This fragrance will make you forget that real babies are loud and smelly, and instead invoke thoughts of cherubs who help you with housework. Can you imagine if real babies did that?

Smoke EliminatorSmoke Eliminator

Okay, so this one doesn’t have the most flowery or imaginative name, but it smells great. Smoke Eliminator fragrance oil is loaded with lemon and lime to give you a fresh fruit scent. Like a refreshing lemon-lime soda. Even if you don’t need to eliminate the smell of smoke, a fragrance this strong could help clean air against other odors as well (wet dog? smelly cat? stinky babies?).  I’d call this another mouth-watering scent, but the cigarette in the picture is kind of ruining it for me. Don’t eat cigarettes.

SpearmintSpearmint

Alright, reader. I’m going to level with you. I chose most of these scents because they hold a position near and dear to my heart. I love spearmint. Once upon a time, a certain company used to make bite-sized mint candies, and I would eat at least a pack a day. I cannot get enough mint. Spearmint helps stimulate brain function, circulation, and can even work to provide relief from digestive and menstruation issues. Plus, it smells nice and clean. Cooling, relaxing.

RootbeerRootbeer

Speaking of sweet treats that I once was obsessed with- ROOTBEER! This fragrance oil smells just like the real thing. Or- like the bacon fragrance oil- as close as possible to the real thing without actually being the real thing. Mmm. A nice, vanilla-y scent, this smell takes me back to when I consumed any and all things rootbeer-related. My younger sister was mistakenly under the impression that rootbeer was alcoholic and thought I indeed had a serious problem. (If you’re looking for the smell of actual beer – we have that, too.)

NG Vanilla Lace and PearlsNG Vanilla Lace and Pearls

We have got plenty of vanilla-scented fragrance oils, but NG Vanilla Lace and Pearls is by far my personal favorite. As a child, I had a body spray that smelled very similar to this scent. I had one bottle and I saved it for only the most special occasions. This was the scent of the woman I wanted to be: a princess. Look at that picture – sweet and delicate yet refined and beautiful. Warm vanilla with a hint of sweet flower and musk. We also have a Princess Type fragrance oil, but I personally prefer lace and pearls.

Moonlight PomegranateMoonlight Pomegranate

Okay, so Moonlight Pomegranate reminds me of the body spray I preferred as a teen. More sexy, more mysterious, accentuated by the moonlight. Wildly inappropriate in context, but as far as the person you aspire to smell like, not bad at all. This scent is fruity yet spicy and even a little woodsy. Like eating a pomegranate in a moonlit clearing in the forest. Don’t believe me? Go try it during the next full moon. Wear a silky, dark red dress. Sweet, sexy, mysterious.

Katie Smells and So Can You!

Remember – this list is nowhere near exhaustive! These were just my top ten favorites, and I honestly had a very difficult time picking only ten. Stop on by our store and smell for yourself. We have over 800 scents – you’re bound to find one that you absolutely love. I challenge you to write your own top ten; it’s a lot harder than you’d think. Thanks for reading!

Cold-Process-Soap-Testing-VideosCold Process Soap Testing Videos

Here at Natures Garden we realize that choosing the most perfect fragrance oil for cold process soap can be quite challenging.  Well, we have the solution.  We recently decided to begin retesting each of our more than 800 fragrance oils!  Over the years we have had multiple people testing the fragrances which might mean multiple result interpretations.   In addition, we have masterbatched to test the soap scents.  This time around, we have decided to test each of our fragrance oils individually, giving each scent its very own batch.  We also have Bailey testing each scent and guess what….we’re taking videos the entire time!  This means not only will you be able to read the results, but you can actually see it with your own eyes.  There will be no more guessing how much time you will have to work.  Have you ever wondered what exactly is a light tan or dark beige?  Well, no more guessing on our interpretation of the final discoloration.  We show you all of this right in a cold process soap testing video.  How cool is that?!?

Now, let me explain the process and recipe we are using to create these wonderful cold process soap testing videos.  Let’s start with our recipe.

Lye Solution

Water 144 grams

Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) 53 grams

Sodium Lactate 8 grams (added to cooled lye solution)

Oil and Butters

Apricot Kernel Oil 26 grams

Mango Butter 53 grams

Shea Butter 49 grams

Castor Oil 14 grams

Sunflower Oil 63 grams

Palm Oil 57 grams

Coconut Oil 76 113 grams

Fragrance Oil 29 grams (Amount reduced if mandated by IFRA)

Here is our process.  We are allowing our lye solution to cool to about 100 degrees.  Then, we incorporate our sodium lactate.  Once that is done, we go ahead and combine our lye solution and oils.  We use a stick blender to emulsify the batter.  The fragrance is incorporated and we observe any ricing or acceleration.  The soap batter is then poured into one of our Silicone 6 Cavity Flower Mold at trace.  After about 24 hours we remove the soaps from the molds and allow them to cure.  Once the soap has cured, we note any discoloration.

Next, comes the fun part…putting the video together!  You will see in these videos Bailey has tested the fragrance especially for you, our customers.  We felt it was important so you could see exactly what the fragrance did in cp soap from beginning right to the end.  This will give you a better idea of how much time you will have to work….or how much FUN can you have with the scent!  We will also show you what the final soap looks like after cure.  You can see just how the soap discolored.

Are you wondering just where you can find these videos???  Well, once a video is completed for a fragrance, it is added right to the website, on the page for that scent.  This way you will be able to see the fragrance oil’s performance as you are shopping.  We already have a video added for our Almond Fragrance Oil.  We will use this scent for an example.

You will not only see a picture on this page of the finished CP soap discoloration, but notice the blue tab right above the picture that says “Video”?  Click on that tab.

Cold-Process-Soap-Testing-Videos

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Clicking on the tab will bring up videos related to our Almond Fragrance Oil.  You will notice two videos on this particular scent.  One is our video describing the fragrance oil (you should totally watch that one as well…it’s awesome too!).

The other video is the one we are  will be focusing on today.  It show you how the fragrance performs in soap.  Click on the second video.  You will then see the video pop up and be able to watch it.

Cold-Process-Soap-Testing-Videos

 

 

 

 

 

We already have many videos posted and many more to come.  If you don’t see a video for the fragrance you are looking for, make sure you check back often as we are adding new videos each day.  Bailey is working very hard to get each Nature’s Garden scent tested again in CP soap just for you.  Our hope is that these cold process soap testing videos will make your shopping experience much easier.  We hope that you enjoy these cp soap testing videos.  Make sure you stay tuned for more fragrance fun!
