I was inspired by my buddy Gil over at Nosegasm to start using up some of my seemingly endless supply of Bath & Body Works candles. This week I burned two candles in one room to see what unique scent I just might come up create (while whittling down my candle stash at the same time!). A little scent mixology, if you will. This scent mixer was Apple Crumble and Tiki Beach, both from Bath & Body Works.
I had already burned these candles separately and knew I really liked them. What would happen when I combined the two? I wanted the tart/cinnamon-y apple crumble scent to blend nicely with the tropical coconut scent.
Apple Crumble: Baked Granny Smith and McIntosh Apples topped with vanilla crumble, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Tiki Beach: A tropical island blend of toasted coconut, vanilla musk, and purple orchids infused with sugared berries.
So what would happen? Would Tiki Beach predominate with its tropical coconut flair?
I find apple scents usually to be quite strong. So would Apple Crumble take over the scene?
This was a decent combination but not really what I was shooting for. The Apple Crumble definitely predominated and the coconut scent was simply no match. Tiki Beach has somewhat of a suntan lotion vibe to it, too, and I think I wanted a sweeter coconut with the apple scent. So while an OK combination, not something I would recreate.
What are some of your favorite scent mixers? Chime in and let us know!
Happy candle burning ~
