Weird 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.
Dill 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!
Garden 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????
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.
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!)
Money – 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!)
New 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!
Peanut Butter Cookie
What’s weird about a peanut butter cookie? I 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!
Buttered 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!
Whole 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 bread–related 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.)
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!
