What's in a ScentSationals Name?

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."

Could it smell less sweet?
Do you recognize this famous quote?! Of course it is William Shakespeare, taken from Romeo and Juliet! As I had the pleasure of naming each of my babies (4!), this quote became one of my favorites. It has found a place in my heart as well as my scrapbooks! 

The meaning behind this quote, if I can simplify and sum it up, is that What matters is what something is, not what it is called.

And, how might you ask, am I relating this to our ScentSationals wickless candles? It's all in the names of the FRAGRANCES! 

I fully realize that the name is just a name and it's really all about the smell, but I still find myself drawn to a fragrance by it's name. Sorry William, but I guess there is an exception to every rule?! If I don't like the name of a fragrance, would I still like the smell? It's sort of hard for me to answer this question, as I am hard pressed to find a fragrance name that I don't like!

These are my top five favorite NAMES of fragrances, and the reason why! 
  1. Phenomenon - for obvious, phenomenal reasons! 
  2. Fireworks - I can hardly wait to SMELL this one! The anticipation is definitely part of the fun!
  3. Holiday Cake - Because CAKE is GOOD. Mmmm. Once you know me better you'll recognize cake as am important part of my world!lol
  4. Gingerbread Man - Sort of along the same reason as CAKE! mmmmmmm.....
  5. Coconut Sun - This one can easily take me to a sunny daydream with just it's name! 
So, what are some of your favorite fragrance names in the ScentSationals line? Comment below before August 18th at 11:59 pm MST and I will put your name in an extra two times for our contest draw!! 



  1. I love Wild Thing, and Zen. Both of those scents really fit with their names!


  2. I love Santa's Workshop, the scent AND the name! It's a holiday setting that most people don't really think about but is so enchanting that you wonder how it would smell if you walked in :)

  3. Fireside would be one of my favorite fragrances/name. The name and scent transform me to a cozy cabin in the mountains sharing stories and creating new memories with the ones I love.

  4. Rogue, Wild West, & Santa's Workshop. Those names made me want to try them before I read the descriptions.
