Bumbleberry FragranceBumbleberry Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Bumbleberry Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden is a combination of blackberries and strawberries and a whole lot more.  Our customers have described it as “fresh, sweet fruity”, and “a delicious red berry scent”.  I must admit, in the past, I have heard of bumbleberries being used for baking purposes.  Imagine my surprise when I found out that there is no such thing as an actual bumbleberry, the do not exist.  After a little bit of researching this nonexistent fruit, I found that bumbleberry refers to a mixture of  in season berries that you need to hurry and use before they go bad.  You mix them together as fruit salad type dish.  However, you can also use frozen berries to create your own bumbleberry dish.

Blue Raspberry Slushie FragranceBlue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden will have you sitting on the porch reminiscing about the good ole days when the ice-cream truck would drive right up to your house as you ran out to greet him anxiously awaiting the blue snow cone.  A little known fact, blue raspberry is a popular flavoring for candy, soft drinks, syrups, and snack foods. This delicious taste comes from the Rubus leucodermis, which is commonly known as the “whitebark raspberry” or “blue raspberry” because when ripe, this delectable fruit turns to a blue-black color hue.

Remember the blue raspberry snow-cones you enjoyed as a child?  How about those fabulous blue raspberry slushies that can still be enjoyed at most movie theaters?  This fragrance captures the aroma of ripened raspberries, sugary cotton candy, and the effervescence of crushed ice.  This trip back to childhood truly smells good enough to eat…but better not.
