Becoming a Chandler for Christmas! Need some scent ideas.

Hey guys!

So this is a bit of overflow from the "gift ideas" thread here in the general forum. I've been thinking of gifting some homemade candles to friends and family this holiday season and have been texting around asking for favorite colors. I do have some general color/scent schemes for those who don't answer back that I still want to gift candles too.. but for the more personalized candles, I want the touch of individuality.

I am in the position of needing decent scents that you associate with the colors listed below. They don't have to be festive, but more holiday in mind would be a bonus. I've added some scents that I already have in mind, but please please please feel free to offer your smell association. I haven't had the chance to hit the crafts store, so I need backups to my backups in case a scent/color isn't provided. If a color has more than one scent, it's because the smell has been associated to both colors.

White - Peppermint, Vanilla, Sugar
Green - Spruce, Pine, Spearmint
Brown - (none yet)
Blue - Berry, (need more)
Red - Cinnamon, Apples, Peppermint
Orange - Oranges, (need more)
Purple - Raspberry, Grape, Flowers, (need more)
Yellow - Pineapple, (need more)
Gold - (none yet)
Turquoise - (none yet)
Pink - Sugar Cookies, Candy, (need more)
Black - Licorice, (need more)

--

I'm set to go to the store this weekend and start experimenting some. At this point in time there's no reason that this /shouldn't/ pan out. Of course my plans are always subject to change.

If you partake, please have fun! Many, many grateful thanks in advance!

The path is different for you and me, but the journey begins in the heart.
