Immortelle - Instant best selling fragrance!

Describing this particular scent is hard. While, on the surface I would describe it as a soft floral - it deserves much more attention then that.There is some sweetness that comes through.

Fake Christmas Tree Blues?

Our favorite trick: Let your HVAC do the work for you.  Spray your air filters with your favorite tree scent blend. We love Pine Needles & Orange Zest.

This is my very favorite tip.  Why?  It is quick & easy.  Simply give your air filters 2 - 3 good sprays of your mist blend.  In minutes, your whole house will be filled with the scent.

Bayberry - What is it anyway?

I admit it.  Until about 30 minutes ago, I thought Bayberry was a made-up candle scent.  It turns out it is a very real thing! Bayberry, also known as wax myrtle, waxberry, or candleberry, is both a shrub and a tree.  The varieties grown in our area of the US are best known for their showy winter branches & grey berries.  They are also tole...

Holiday Fragrance Feature: Eggnog

Our informal research at Scent & Sip has concluded that eggnog is similar to cilantro - you either love it or hate it.  But, did you know that this polarizing drink has been around since medieval times? One of the earliest recipe records for a medieval British elixir called posset, which is believed to be one of the earliest descendants of w...
