Confessions of a Soapaholic

scent (snt)
n. 1. A distinctive, often agreeable odor.

The scent of a product is obviously very important. Human emotions, memories... feelings... are all connected to scent. I'm sure you've experienced smelling something that triggered your brain to go down memory lane... Well, I'm without a doubt 100%: scent + memory = priceless, kind of person.

My confession today is my faithful addiction to Soul Sisters candles by friends Jennifer + Rebecah. Let's talk about my most favorite scent Gardenia. It's one of my favorite gardenia scents - I like it as much as having fresh gardenias in my room. It has a generous amount of fragrance which keeps your environment pleasant to be in, but not at all overwhelming like how most floral scents tend to be. Creamy, adequately sweet with hints of what feels like being bathed in beautiful shiny pearls... (Does that even make sense?). What I want to say is that this one is just splendid.

I light it every time I'm working on my drawings. I've also tried their Jasmine, Lilac, Sun and Sea, etc... and all are equally of excellent quality and wonderfully scented.

So in ten years, when I smell gardenias... it will remind me of my old drawing board covered with doodles, paint marks and food stains....
