I forgot how hard it is to shop for candle fragrance oils.
How do you choose? There are so many scent options and companies to pick from. Who has the best? Which oils are the strongest? Do they work well in soy, what about paraffin? Just how important is that flash point anyway and what does Wedding Day really smell like?
While I filled my virtual carts I day dreamed of a where I would store them all. I wanted them all, just one of each. That's not too much is it?
I settled on a small array of 1 ounce samples. That's enough to tide me over for now, plus I don't actually have the room to store the over 300 fragrances on my wish list.
As the boxes began arriving my excitement was building and I spent the better part of a Thursday afternoon sniffing several dozen little bottles before I realized two things. There isn't much you can do with 1 ounce of fragrance oil and it's amazing how fast a headache can come on.
I swore to myself I would start small, pick three and go from there, but its been difficult choosing which ones I like more than others. I like them all.
