The Haunting Halloween Aroma

For Halloween, my love and I threw a little party, a costume party of course, and invited our neighbors and friends to come join in the festivities. I spent most of the day cooking and frantically cleaning up after myself! My very first time as hostess and I was panicking to say the least!

"We won't have enough food!" I cried as the hour drew nearer.
"We'll be fine," said my husband. "We've already got homemade truffles and peanut butter cups, cookies, chips and dip, drinks, what else could we possibly need?" Still discontent, I ran through the house in my Snow White garb, checking and double-checking everything. (Food. Check! Bathroom clean. Check! Dishes done. Husband working on it!) When I saw my ScentSationals Warmer.

"What fragrance should we do?" I said.
"Oh, I dunno, something Halloween-ish, I guess," my husband replied over his shoulder, elbow deep in kitchen suds. I found our tub of fragrances, and began sifting through them: Crisp Linens? No, it's not a laundry party. Orange Clove? Well, maybe if we have a Christmas party, but not tonight. What about Hot Wassail? Spicy? Yes. Sweet? Yes. Warm and inviting? Yes. Yes. Yes!

I popped a cube into each Warmer throughout the house, then went over my list again and again until our guests started to arrive. We invited everybody to come into the kitchen and eat some of the treats (which I had spent hours making and was very eager to see if they would be a hit) when one guest asked, "Can I get a cup of your wassail? It smells so good!"

For a minute, I was confused...I didn't make any wassail...Then it hit me: the Warmers! I told our guest about the fragrant ScentSationals Wax that was filling our home with such a warm scent and she told her husband that when our party was over they were going out to get some! "Otherwise," she said, "it'll haunt me all day!"
