It is our first HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY DAY! Let’s debate and VOTE on something a little less stressful than political issues, shall we? Like our favorite scents! [enter BIG SNIFF!]. There is nothing more festive than a home that smells wonderful! So to kick off the delicious scent of the holidays, we have a super fun giveaway!

The other day I came home and was greeted by a HORRIFIC smell as I walked in the door. Fish. We had cooked fish for dinner the night before and accidentally forgot the fish wrapping in the garbage! PEEEWWW! It was nasty. I thought for sure something had died.

But, lucky for me, URBAN BOTANIC had just sent me a box of yummy smelling fragrance oils and a scent warmer! Yippee! I whipped that baby out and before long, my house smelled like Christmas. Sigh. I love delicious smelling rooms.

Scent is such a powerful thing, isn’t it? Sometimes I will catch a whiff of something and suddenly I am transported back to another place and time.

I am very excited to introduce you to the lady that is sponsoring our giveaway today! McKenna Gordon is a reader of The Inspired Room and has started a great home & personal fragrance business called Urban Botanic.

    Sounds DELICIOUS ~ and my favorite would have to be:


    Jans inspiring blog post..Come to Jesus and Pray

  2. Cathy

    I love anything that smells “fall baked”. Apples, spices, pumpkin and so on.
    For spring/summer, I love the smell of pear or freshly cut grass.

  3. Kay Phillips

    hmmmm My favorite scents vary with the mfg. I like a very good vanilla and I have an apple pie candle at my office that smells great too. I use lavender essential oil often to scent my home. EO’s are more predictible in their fragrances. I like some florals but find there is a big difference among various manufacturers.

    Kay Phillipss inspiring blog post..I’m Knitting!

  4. Jinx

    White Linen, hands down for me. I love how soothing Green Tea is (I wear Elizabeth Arden “Green Tea Lotus” everyday to work!) & I think I have 3 Water Lily candles going at the moment!

    Jinxs inspiring blog post..Spiced Cafe Mocha Cookies & Dragonlings

  5. peg karrasch

    Anytime of the year I enjoy the strong spicy smells..cinnamon, cloves, gingerbread. It reminds me of the holidays. But for a night on the town Estee Lauder’s Knowing has always been my very favorite scent.

  6. Christie Groth

    I would say my #1 favorite would be lemongrass.

    Christie Groths inspiring blog post..Is it over yet???

  7. Stacey

    For my home in the fall and winter Iwould definitely choose Harvest Spice. Of course, my choice would be a little different in the spring/summer. That time of year I enjoy cucumber/pear type scents. What a nice giveaway. :)

    Staceys inspiring blog post..Vote America!!

  8. Ladybug

    My favorite is definately Harvest Spice! What a wonderful giveaway. I love wonderful scents. With cats and kids flames are not an option! LOL :)

  9. Kristin

    They all seem like they would small AHmaazing…but I would love to try the Almond Cookie. Wow.

  10. Renee

    In the cold months I love anything smelling of cinnamon, so definitely my vote is for Harvest Spice.
    What a great giveaway! I’m off to check out McKenna’s Urban Botanic link…

  11. Lorrie

    For my home I vote for fresh, citrusy scents, probably like the Coconut Lemongrass.


  12. Lisa

    This time of year, nothing would beat Havest Spice…fall scents bring such a warm and inviting feeling to a home.

  13. Meredith

    So many to chose from. Perhaps the smell of a newborn baby. Although, that German Chocolate Cake sounds divine. Chocolate, brown sugar and coconut – what’s not to like?

    Merediths inspiring blog post..Happy Bags!

  14. Joelle

    The White Linen sounds lovely! I love for my house to smell fresh and clean like laundry.

    Joelles inspiring blog post..An apple a day…

  15. Melanie

    I LOVE vanilla. Anything that smells like vanilla. I live in Florida and we won’t be having hanging chads today! I am off to vote:)

  16. Dasha

    I usually like vanilla and lavender, especially together. I also really like Sunshine and Pomegranate above… maybe I’ll try something citrusy in the near future!

  17. Lindsay

    mmm Almond Cookie sounds delish!

  18. Wendy

    Yummy! I would love Harvest Spice! Ü

  19. Kathy

    I love a variety of scents. Right now the spicy scent of fallen leaves in a forest have to be my seasonal favorite! I also love vanilla, grapefruit, cookies baking, and warm bread. Some of these are not scents you would find in a store, but they are wonderful in my home:>)

    Kathys inspiring blog post..300th Post Give-Away

  20. Emily

    It depends on the season. In spring and summer I love citrus scents so I’d love the Sunshine and Pomegranate. In the fall I am all about vanilla and cinnamon – so the harvest spice.

    Emilys inspiring blog post..Sunday Link Love: Sugar Overload Edition

  21. Vanessa van der Meer

    How could one choose?? I’m between German Chocolate Cake and Coconut Lemongrass. . . .I think the lemongrass is winning.

  22. Jen M

    What a great giveaway! I LOVE the sound of all of the scents, but I think I’d choose Sunshine & Pomegranate because of the uplifting properties of the scents – perfect for dreary winter.

  23. Jennifer

    It would be Almond Cookie. Anything cookie is a good thing…

  24. Stephanie

    I like sents that make you feel like you just walked into a warm house where someone has been baking all day. Yum

    Stephanies inspiring blog post..Sewing Seeds

  25. naturegirl

    Melissa: I love the idea that there are NO harmful chemicals because all that I burn in my home are the pure soy or bees wax candles. I also hate nasty cooking odors so I cast my vote from the selection as:
    Harvest Spice – Allspice, Maple Spice & Cinnamon..perfect fo holiday scented house!

  26. Kristen

    Oh these sound amazing. I love filling my home with delicious smells. For me scent is tied so closely to my memories so I like scents from my childhood…Harvest Spice sounds closest to the Harvest candle my mom used to burn when I’d come home from college on fall or Thanksgiving break. That’s my vote!

    Kristens inspiring blog post..It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

  27. Karen

    sunshine & pomegrante sounds WON-DER-FUL! I make a soap that I love the scent of – Bamboo & Green Tea but it sounds like this one could win me over.

  28. cynthia

    Emily @ Little Homes inspiring blog post..Italian Dressing

  34. Linda

    Oh boy Oh boy…nothing like a great scent in the home! I change it up all the time (and have been known to layer too!) Warm burning wood/amber smells in the fall…Crisp evergreen in the winter, citrusy, frangipani in the spring, clean linen and sunny scents in the summer. ALL of hers sound perfect!

    We are THAT familys inspiring blog post..THAT Family Tree Society-Issue 16

  37. Huse Yo Mama

    German Chocolate Cake – are you SERIOUS!? I’m all over that one! Brown Sugar and Coconut makes my mouth water. I am thinking that I might gain five pounds just having that in my house, but I’m willing to do it, for the greater good.

    Huse Yo Mamas inspiring blog post..We have a wiener, I mean a winner.

  38. Tidymom

    Oooooh, I’m a “scent whore” LOL I love me a good scent!!! I can’t leave the house with out perfume and my house ALWAYS has a tart melting or something scenting the house.
    During the summertime, I like clean fresh scents – like Yankee’s Clean Cotton – but during the fall and winter I like bakery scents like a good
    Harvest Spice, Banana Bread or Yankee’s Cranberry Chutney is one of my all time favorites!!

    What a wonderful giveaway!

    Tidymoms inspiring blog post..Thank you Ms. Pumpkinhead…

  39. Adrienne S

    Cinnamon pumpkin would be my favorite scent. I love the harvest smelling ones.
    [email protected]

  40. Joanne

    At this time of the year, I would have to say that HARVEST SPICE would be my favorite. It just makes you think of Fall. Please enter me in your giveaway. Thanks, Joanne ~~ [email protected]

  41. Rachael Will

    I have Spiced Pumpkin in my house right now, but that Harvest Spice sounds delicious. I love spicy, holiday smelling scents during the Fall and Winter months. I think Harvest Spice would be perfect for me!

    Rachael Wills inspiring blog post..Halloween Night in the Neighborhood!!!

  42. Kathryn

    Umm, yummy! I love delicious-smelling rooms, too!

    My favorite scents vary with the seasons. In spring, I like fresh, crisp scents (White Linen!); in summer, I like fruity, citrus scents (Sunshine Pomegranate!); in fall, I like warm, spicy scents (Harvest Spice!). In winter, I like vanilla, buttercream scents (Almond Cookie!). (Okay, my mouth is watering now …)

    Uh, and I made tuna fish this morning as I packed lunch boxes, so I could really use a sweet smell around here! In the meantime, I ground up some orange peels in the disposal. :-)

    Kathryns inspiring blog post..Resolute … in Absolute Truth

  43. Bonnie Mattson

    They all sound great but this time of year the Harvest Spice sounds fabulous.

  44. Lori

    Coconut Lemongrass sounds like it would smell yummyliscious.

  45. Jeni

    Definitely the German Chocolate Cake…mmm…

    Jenis inspiring blog post..Red Sky

  46. Jen

    I love coconut scented things and have been trying to find a coconut perfume. Jennifer Lopez had one called Miami Glow but it was only out for a limited time.

    I used to sell a similar diffuser and scented wax bars (by Ganz maybe?). One day I decided to try out the butterscotch in my store and soon everyone in the mall was trying to figure out who was making pancakes. It was the yummiest smell.

    Jens inspiring blog post..Christmas Planning

  47. Lindsey

    My favorite scent is harvest spice! Those scents (individually and combined) remind me of the holidays and spending time with family.

  48. Deb

    Oh. My. Goodness. That German Chocolate Cake sounds absolutely scrumptious. It could become a winter favorite for me. Yummo!

    Debs inspiring blog post..Maybe You’ve Heard it This Way

  49. KellyB

    Right now Harvest Spice sounds best. The other scents sounds like they would be wonderful too. I will have to check out her website.

  50. Eileen

    I love citrus. There is nothing better than a fresh juicy orange!

    Eileens inspiring blog post..

  51. Julie B

    I <3 yummy smelling things, especially when they match the current season! So I would have to say Harvest Spice. =)

  52. Starwoodgal

    My “favorite” really depends on the time of the year. Right now, I have the Harvest Spice theme going on because it is fall and I love the apple/cinnamon/spice aroma.

    During the Christmas Holidays, I usually go for a cookie scent. During spring I break out the clean linen smells and during the summer – something with citrus.

    Starwoodgals inspiring blog post..Recipe: Turtles Candy

  53. Leslie

    So many good smells in the world!! I love the scent of pumpkin pie in the fall. Limes (in my margarita!!) in the summer. The smell of baby lotion. I love to clean with lavendar and peppermint. As far as the Urban Botanic scents . . . hmmm . . . I think Coconut Lemongrass sounds devine!!

    Leslies inspiring blog post..A weekend getaway!!!

  54. feisty tourist

    i’d have to vote for harvest spice. with allspice, maple spice, & cinnamon, it’s the perfect oct-dec scent.

    feisty tourists inspiring blog post..TTT: VOTE!

  55. Allysa

    The White Linen sounds wonderful.

  56. Melissa

    I vote for Sunshine – It’s so sad to see summer go – I’d love to smell it in my house all winter long!

    Melissas inspiring blog post..Create a Hat just for you!

  57. Wendy

    I’m a really big fan of anything citrus-y!

  58. Jamie O

    harvest spice all the way! i love this time of year and all of the smells!

  59. cinda

    I love the freshness of the grapefruit scent, so I think the
    Sunshine & Pomegranate would be perfect.

    What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks for offering it!

    cindas inspiring blog post..Painting in the tub!

  60. Diane

    I love this time of year and the smell of “Harvest Spice” just evokes so many memories of the season. It’s like gingerbread cookies baking in the oven… What an exciting give-away!

  61. Debbie

    My home desperately needs HARVEST SPICE. We too cooked something that smelled so awful there aren’t WORDS to describe how awful…and it lingered….yuk….I’m heading over to her blog to look, wish I could smell it too!

    Debbie @ ribbonwoods inspiring blog post..VOTING DAY!

  62. Tammy of Lurksville

    White linen sounds great to me!

    Thanks for the contest and a great blog to read and enjoy!☺

  63. April in CT

    I love the smell of apples and cinnamon all year ’round. I enjoy a vanilla scent too, but it makes me want to bake cookies all the time! The Harvest Spice scent sounds fabulous.
    Thanks for the give away and a new site to check out!

  64. Kate

    Hmm…depends on the time of year. These days, VANILLA is the winner for me. Soon it’ll be gingerbread/sugar cookie sorts of things…then come spring, citrus! I’m a little too ADD when it comes to things at home; don’t want the same scent year ’round.

  65. Astrid

    Those all sound like lovely smells. :) I think I would choose the coconut lemongrass scent.

    I’m not a big fan of stinky stuff. I usually avoid Bath & Body Works (or whatever it’s called) because the smell is overwhelming and gives me headaches. It’s one of the reasons I started making my own soap. I love lavender soap or rosemary mint soap.

    By the way, dump some baking soda in the stinky trash to help with odor control. Works like a charm!

    Astrids inspiring blog post..Dear Chip and Amy,

  66. Violet Skiles

    mmmmmmmmmmm …. the smell of home-made bread baking! (a smell not often sniffed in my house…) But as far as fragrances for my home, none that imitate delicious foods, it just makes me wish the real thing were here!

    Violet Skiless inspiring blog post..Doggies Dress Up

  67. Julie

    Yum. I’d pick the Havest Spice if I won… ’tis the season! In the warmer months I like crisp things, such as cucumber.

    Julies inspiring blog post..Tybee Island, our vacation

  68. Christy

    I like cinnamon smells and have lately fallen in love with a cherry candle that smells just like my favorite cherry chapstick.

    The scents listed above look great but I would have a hard time choosing between Coconut Lemongrass and Sunshine & Pomegranate.

    Christys inspiring blog post..I Made it Myself– Crafty Conservative

  69. Jeni

    Almond cookie would be my pick. I have to admit I am known to just open up my bottle of almond extract and sniff it until I can’t get anymore scent in my head:) Crazy I know.

  70. Laura

    It depends on the season for me. In the Spring I like a Clean Cotton scent, Summer would have to be a fruity scent like Cucumber Melon, Fall would be Pumpkin Pie, and Winter would be anything Cinnamon.

  71. Holly

    I love candles so much!! Ive always got one burning to make things smell yummy! I love scents like vanilla, peppermint, anything that smells sweet and delish!! I just bought a buttercream frosting candle… YUM! So that German Chocolate Cake scent is probably fabulous!! xoxox!

    Hollys inspiring blog post..merry christmas children’s book swap!!

  72. Megan

    I love fresh clean smells. Anything that has green tea in it I absolutely love, so I’d probably like the White Linen scent the best!

  73. Andrea

    I love anything fallish or coffee scents…pomegranate too!!! In the spring and summer, I love lilac and pear scents……mmmmmmmm

    Andrea @ Big Creek Cottages inspiring blog post..Still, oh so thankful……..

  74. Suzanne, the Farmer's Wife

    I love the smell of vanilla and also very light floral scents…..nothing with gardenia in it for sure!! As for the list of Urban Botanics, that Maui Pear sounds fabulous.

  75. Renee

    It really depends on the time of year – during the fall and winter I like spicy scents like cinnamon or gingerbread, during spring I like lighter scents like white linen, and during summer I like beachy or citrusy scents.

    Renees inspiring blog post..Election Day

  76. My First Kitchen

    Ooh, I love clean scents, so White Linen sounds (smells?) amazing. I’ve noticed the UB logo before and was drawn to it. Great stuff. And I’ve done the food wrapping in the trash overnight, too. Yeeeah. Kinda gross.

  86. elizabeth holder

    my favorite scents are Cucumber and melon mixed –
    also cherry’s ummmmm

  87. Valerie

    I LOVE sweet smelling scents like cinammon bun or sugar cookie, but for my house, I love to have fresh scents like clean linen to make the house just smell so clean!

  88. Adrienne W

    They all sound great, but my vote is for white linen! Pomegranate takes a close second! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  89. MaryB

    White Linen would be my choice. I love the fresh smell.

  90. Carla

    Mmmmm, warm apple pie.

    But that German chocolate cake is sounding pretty yummy.

  91. Renee

    I’m digging Apple right now. It makes me thik of autumn. I know it’s November but it hasn’t snowed yet so I still am in Fall mode. So yummy.

  92. danana banana

    love hot-apple-cider scent during the cold winter months. during spring & summer, I love all of those clean-linen scents.

  93. Summer

    –i’m all about the harvest spicey-stuff, and if you threw a little pinch of apple in there I wouldn’t mind at all!
    –not much for anything attempting to smell like baked goods, but apple things are the exception
    –the white linen also sounds very appealing- very cool and clean, probably with that i-just-did-the-laundry freshness that I am forever pursuing in my home

    Coconut Lemongrass sounds marvelous!

  103. Barb

    Harvest Spice would be my pick of those listed but to draw up my favorite holiday memories I would have to say Peppermint and evergreen. They both remind me of going into the woods to find our Christmas tree every year. And yes they were always a little “Charlie Brown” looking but perfect!!

  104. Laura

    I like the smell of skunk! Not for home fragrancing, though, heh. Right now I’m using caramel and apples n’ cream for fall.

  105. Melissa

    Hi! I love Cinnamon and spice scents for the fall/winter. For the spring and summer Linen or something very light and refreshing. I love reading everyones blog. Mybe some day I can get the courage to do one. :)

  106. Desiree

    This time of year my favorite scent would be the Harvest Spice, it just sets the tone for FALL. But…I also think I would love the Sunshine and Pomegranate. I have some soap that has pomegranate in it and I love it!

  107. Lydia

    I LOVE the smell of Ginger. Mmmmm. What a great giveaway! Sign me up!

    lydia.bower @

    Probably because it’s fall and I’m always cooking with apples lately – but I would have to choose Harvest Spice as my favorite.

    Coconut Lemongrass sounds divine. What a beautiful set and giveaway. Love your blog.

  111. rachel

    I think I’d have to go with the German Chocolate Cake! For myself, I only wear Burt’s Bees products and White Tea and Ginger Body Splash from B&BW. For my house…I like coffee, chocolate, apples, citrus, and vanilla. My husband likes the Firewood candle also from B&BW.

  112. Jen

    Umm, I love it when my house smells good. I love woodsy, musky scents. My current favorite is “Soothing” from Aspen Bay, but I’m always looking for new, greener fragrances – this sounds great. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  116. Amanda

    yum yum Harvest Spice! good enough to eat

  117. MizSmoochie

    Anything Pear related wins hands down! Maui Pear!

    Pear scents invoke memories of an elderly couple who became my surrogate grandparents of sorts. I remember days of jumping on the trampoline (in the guest bedroom!!) Kewpie dolls on the dresser, and sitting in the living room watching the wife turn down her melted candle edges, while her husband would sit back in his recliner, still wearing his railroad style overalls, listening to his old record player. Their house always smelled like pears. One Halloween, the wife dressed me up as Mary Poppins… that was my best costume EVER! (Just had to throw that bit in!)

  118. Susie

    All of the scents sound wonderful, if I have to pick….. coconut-lemongrass! No, harvest spice, No, german chocolate o.k. you pick and surprise me!

  119. Charlotte

    I have to go with the spicy scents for fall/winter too. Cinnamon, gingerbread, anything in that line. Vanilla is good all year long!

    white linen…clean, fresh, crisp. perfect year round

  129. Kate

    Tough call, but I think Harvest Spice just barely wins out over the Almond Cookie scents for me. In the spring and summer, I loved the smell of the tomato plants and rosemary in my first garden. Funny, considering I don’t care to eat tomatoes, but they sure smelled good.

  130. LuLu

    Oh I would pick Harvast Spice but they all sound great….it’s chilly here so I think I’m going to light a candle….

  131. Laurie

    Gingerbread…ummmm my favorite!! Thanks Laurie

  132. Spanish Princess

    Ahhh … I am a lover of all things pretty smelling. As for a favorite scent, it would depend on mood and time of year. Throughout the year I have lavender and rose scents “in bloom”, my office has lilac, a new discovery for me. I love the smell of anything fresh baked, particularly cookies and bread, though baked apple pie is a must have candle in the kitchen for those “oops, forgot to take out the trash moments.” The funny part is that my pup likes fresh laundry. He will stick his head into the clean laundry basket and inhale like it’s his last breath!

  133. Brooke

    My favorite would be Harvest Spice. My personal favorites are lemon-scented geranium (any geranium actually), tomato leaves when you reach in to grab a ripe and ready fruit, the rosemary and lavender plants in my small garden, bread baking, laundry drying (WITHOUT dryer sheets!), cut lemons, and the perfume I’ve been wearing since 1985. We were traveling in France and I wandered into a perfumerie in Cannes. They were spritzing everyone with a new scent and when I returned to my husband he said, “What is that!? I love it!” I’ve worn nothing else since–Diva by Emmanuel Ungaro.

  134. teresa

    For me it’s all about “Maui Pear” Sounds delightful!
    Happy day

  135. Penny

    My all-time favorite smell is COCONUT!!! Mmmmm… :) However, the choices above all sound delicious! My top choice though would be:

    Maui Pear – Pina Colada, Coconut & Pear

    with a close runner up of:
    Almond Cookie – Almond, Maple Spice, & Coconut

  136. Laurel

    German Chocolate Cake……..I love the smell of baked goods without dirtying any dishes.

    Laurels inspiring blog post..Truth in Advertising

  137. Cheryl

    I love the smell of apple-cinnamon! Ooo…that Maui Pear sounds good! Thanks for the opportunity!

  138. Theresa

    my very favorite scent is of the pomanders that my grandma used to make at Christmas time – orange and clove. Any time I smell them together, I think of sitting on the worn linoleum of her kitchen floor, under the table, putting cloves in the holes of an orange that she’d just pre-poked for me to “help” her make the pomanders.

    Another spicy girl here-Harvest Spice!

  141. Bettina

    Love the smells of fall and winter. Right now like the pumpkin spice smells, and shortly will switch over to the scented pine cones. It just smells like the holidays!

  142. Claire

    Mt favorite scents are those of fresh cut roses.

  143. Melissa

    Sunshine and pomegranate sounds wonderful, crisp and clean

  144. stacy

    love the almond cookie and the harvest spice.
    if it was spring or summer i would chose the sunshine and pomegrante.
    great combos!

  145. Jaime

    I have favorite scents for the different seasons. For autumn and winter it’s ‘warm sugar and vanilla’. For spring and summer it’s ‘lilac’.

    Looking at the offered collections I’d have to say my pick would be the Sunshine & Pomegranate one. Who wouldn’t want their home to smell tropical all year round? :D

  146. Karin

    Right now my house smells like wet dog, soooo… any scent would be welcomed. My favorites scents are fresh cut grass, apple pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and orange. I think the Harvest Spice would be lovely. (As long as it can erase wet dog!)

    Karins inspiring blog post..Altered.

  147. Mary Anne

    My favorite scent would be Sunshine and Pomegranate. It just sounds like it will energize/invigorate you, which this mama needs with two boys ages 3yo and 7 months old. One doesn’t let me sleep and the other requires tons of energy once he wakes up. Also, pomegranate does remind me of Fall but the mandarin and grapefruit remind me of summer. So really, you’re getting a year round scent!

    Mary Annes inspiring blog post..Praying For The Election

  148. anne

    What a fantastic giveaway! I would have to go with grapefruit scent..or my other choice would be White Linen, Freesias are my favourite flower :-)

    Thank goodness you got rid of that dreadful smell…oh no, not nice :-(

  154. kris

    without a doubt, white linen. mmmm, I can smell it already, so clean, so fresh, ahhhhhhhhh. Bliss.

  155. Mary Jo

    This time of year I love all the fall scents, especially pumpkin spice. All year long I can’t resist the Christmasy aromas either: cinnamon, pine, pomegranate, etc!

    Mary Jos inspiring blog post..Something to be grateful for…

  156. cherry

    There are so many wonderful scents in the world but the one that came from my memory immediately was a memory of the first time I smelled a spice bush while sitting on my Grandmothers front porch. My thought was if only that scent could be bottled, I’d being buying some. Rich with many layers, sweet yet earthy. Smell comes in the Spring here in Missouri before the leaves arrive on the spice bush.

  157. Sweet Cottage Dreams

    LOL! Fish? I know what you mean!!! ~ Like you, and so many others, I love to have our home smell pretty by burning candles. My favorite smell is orange blossom, vanilla and patchoulli. I know….patchoulli is so “old hippy” but I love it. It really is a great combo.

    For the choices you have listed, I think Harvest Spice would be dandy!

    Happy Day my friend!! Huggies to Winston!!

    Becky and Duhgall

  158. Stephanie

    My favorite smell is CLEAN. The air after it rains, a dryer sheet, a clean baby, cleaning products (weird, I know). I think the White Linen would be my favorite, due to my adoration of CLEAN!

  159. rachel crisman

    White linen would be my choice!!!I love to have a candle or incense burning in my house all the time.So relaxing and calming.

  169. Tracie

    Favorite scent? Would have to go with the White Linen. Sounds clean and simple.

  170. Kathryn Ivey

    My favorite, regardless of the season, would be harvest spice. Even in the dog days of August, this scent reminds me of childhood and the cozy-ness of home!

  171. Eunice

    I love the Harvest Spice selection. Fall is my favorite time of year, along with pumpkin pie being my all time favorite dessert!

  172. Heather

    I love all the autumn/winter spicey scents! also anything with cloves, or things in the “musky” family, like patchouli and nag champa.

  173. Jessica Smith

    My favorite scent is (I know this sounds weird) but Mint & Baby Powder together.

    But of the choices given I’d love Sunshine and Pomegranate!

    The Body Shop has this scent called Satsuma (or something close to that!) – if you mix it with their other oil scent Exotic – you have yourself a nostril cocktail. I’m telling you. It’s amazing. I must have six sets of each sitting in my cabinet right now. I abhor the day I ever run out.

  185. Chondra Taylor

    For me, it’s a toss up between Harvest Spice and German Chocolate Cake. My hubby loves the Harvest Spice scent and requests it in our bathroom. I love it too, but German Chocolate Cake reminds me of the cake that my mom used to make every Christmas. It was a humongous triple layer delicacy that she usually shared with others, because it was too much for her and Daddy, and my husband doesn’t like coconut! I miss that from the holidays, but that scent would definitely bring back that sweet memory.

  186. Dana

    I love vanilla apple. Such a great combo.

    In my house I love the scent of fresh baking – cookies, bread etc and in candles and soaps I love the scent of fruit.


  214. MsClique

    While I am like many,I love the scents of the seasons.

    However, after a while i tend to grow tired of apples and cinnamin or Havest — for scents are memory creaters and if EVERY day smells like freshed baked cookies, by behind grows just at the thought.

    So, alas, i will be boring… but sincere when i say i never tire of “clean” or linen. Then when i do bake some cookies or an apple pie its REAL and not just a mask.

    Thanks for your site, you do inspire us all.


  215. Helen Cox

    I love harvest spice :)

    I would choose Harvest Spice as my favorite from the list. I love homey, yummy fragrances that remind me of holiday baking.

  236. aeko111

    I prefer a light floral scent, freesia comes to mind, also like white linen or lavender. No food smells for me, I have a weight problem and if I smelled vanilla, pumpkin or gingerbread I would be off and running to the fridge.

  237. Danielle

    I love anything that is for fall. Harvest spice, cinnamon,vanilla,etc. I had two that I like at christmas- sugar cookie and one called Home for the Holidays(yankee). that one has a hint of pine and it just smells like Christmas.

    Maui Pear…it sooooo reminds me of the tropics and how wonderfully relaxed I feel whenever I can get there.

    White linen or german chocolate cake, it depends on my mood, but I’m afraid the chocolate would make me crave chocolate more than I already do!

  240. Roberta

    of the ones you’ve listed, I’d pick White Linen. Of my favourite scent, I grew up in Bangladesh and I love rich Indian inspired smells so for a single scent I’d pick Rosewood.

    I have two favorite scents! I love the smell of mulling spice simmering on the stove in some fresh apple cider. The whole house smells like fall. I also love the smell of fresh pine greenery and boxwood, including the Christmas tree. I love natural holiday decorations, so for Christmas the whole house is infused with the scent of different pine greens. I love bringing nature into the home!


  242. Julie M.

    I vote for Harvest Spice, I love spiced scents!

    That pot looks like a great deal, I love the idea of no flames!

  243. Denise

    Are you kidding? We have to pick ONE. As much as I love the thought of the warm smell of fall and baking, I think I would have to vote for the Maui Pear. If I can’t go to the islands, that scent would take me there! Aloha! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  256. Becca

    I love clean scents, with citrus in them, and light, clean florals, not rose, more like freesia and honeysuckle. But there is nothing like cinnamon and vanilla for the holiday smells. So, of the listed ones, white linen, harvest spice and sunshine & pomegranate all sound wonderful.

  257. Pam

    I would definitely go with the Harvest Spice, those are some of my favorite! Thanks for offering this, it’s so cool!

    My favorite scent in the world just cannot be bottled, but it is the smell of fresh clean laundry when it has spent the day hanging out on the clothes line on a crisp fall day! Fresh linen scent or lemon verbena come pretty close, but there is nothing like burying you nose in a pillowcase dried on the line!

    For the giveaway – the Almond Cookie sounds divine

    Thanks for the fun!

  272. Britney

    I love the smell of Creme Brulee! And for the holidays, fresh winter spruce. And in the summer, pineapple crush from Tyler candles.

  273. Victoria

    Ohhhhh German Choc cake sounds divine!

  274. heather jane

  275. Rachel

    I’m not sure….several scents sound like they would smell divine! For my home, I generally like kitchen-y smells. So I think I’ll pick Almond Cookie. I can imagine biting into one right now!

  276. Genevieve Ferraro

    Such wonderful and unique choices! My favorite would have to be – Sunshine and Pomegranate. It reminds me of a sun drenched villa in Tuscany.

  277. Maggie Black

    Vanilla, almond and coconut are my favorite scents because they are so cozy!

  278. Carla Pullum

    Harvest spice !!!

  279. Elaine

    Oh how very very cool! I LOVE scent! Usually I go for scented diptyque candles but they are too pricey for me right now. My absolute favorite scents in diptyque are “Feu de Bois” (Firewood), and Menthe, but I also love ‘Teak” and Fig & Cassis. I used to go wayyyyy out of my way to get my hands on certain candles…I wish I could still afford to do that!

    I love nature scents, and lots of other ones too…just not cinnamon.

    It is a tie-Almond Spice and White Linen. I love the warmth of the Almond Spice and the freshness of the White Linen.

  281. Lauren

    I adore the scent of Balsam. But also the traditional lavender, soothing every time.

    Anything that makes my house smell warm and cozy wins with me, but it is usually a spice mixture – like cinnamon and apples. I have to vote for the Harvest spice – nothing would be more fallish than that. Thanks.

  283. Kelly Larsen

    Would love to give it a free try! Have 2 dogs and 3 cats! Any scents are better than there’s at times !

  284. Christine

    My all-time favorite candle scent would have to be “Baked Apple Pie”… So yummy smelling at this time of year!

  285. Kelli

    I love my husband’s smell…smells like graham crackers.

  286. Sheila

    I love a clean, crisp smell, like the white linen. I do alot of baking, so my kitchen usually smells like cookies, hot rolls, pies, and good homeade soups.

  287. Lisa

    As far as scents from the giveaway, I am sure that the German Chocolate Cake was created just for me!! :)

    Scents I like in general are vanilla, cinnamon, then chocolate and hazelnut. But I also like fresh clean scents – so difficult.

  289. Jackie Cook

    I like fresh clean scents

  290. Autumn

    I’m a fall leaves, apple orchard, pumpkin-huntin kinda gal. I love the sights and smells of fall. The apple cinnamon will fix me right up. What a great site and a great offer! Thanks!

  291. Breanne

    Oh I love coconut and lime and lemon. It reminds me of the beach and its a clean smell, not heavy. Oh, to be at the beach right now!

  292. Dani

    I love Green Tea in the Spring and Summer because it smells to clean and fresh, but my all around favorite scent is vanilla. It makes me feel cozy!! I am excited about the website for future options. Thanks.

    Pomergranite and sunshine. Oh heck, ANY of them.

  298. Rosie's Whimsy

    I love this idea. Don’t want to be burning wicks with lead in them with a grandbaby in the house! I am intrigued by the White Linen. That sounds particularly lovely to me.

    ((hugs)) Rosie

    definetly Lavender. In this crazy time in the world. It’s easy to get really stressed. I lie down for 15-20 minutes with Lavender on the table. Result- it helps to calm me down for awhile. (LOL) Not trying to be a drag. :)
