hey Ladies: whats your favourite smell?

Hey ladies, whats your favourite smell?

I am looking into getting some essential oils for a craft project, but want to know what everyone loves the smell of? Is it roses? Vanilla? Share here please! Thanks!

I LOVE vanilla. I don't think I could ever get tired of vanilla. My mom is allergic to most scents so I don't wear anything super vanilla-y, but once I move out, for sure! Right now I just use vanilla deodorant and vanilla toothpaste to get my fix. Hahaha

Not sure if you'd want to bottle this, but I love the smell of my horse and her tack (leather), followed closely by the smell of hay.

More along the lines of what you're looking for I would say plumeria, gardenia and lilac are all great.

Ditto to the leather and hay! Haha, I love walking into a tack room, it smells so nice.

I like peppermint and lemon... not together but they smell good on their own.

Frankly, I like that "wet horse" smell myself...don't know what it is about it...

As for what you are looking for...I'll get a little more serious....fresh cut grass, orange blossoms, lilac, vanilla, lavender, that salty ocean smell

Fresh cut grass, clothes off the clothesline, coconut!!, the smell of banana boat tanning oil..
But I gotta say, my favorite bath product scent is warm vanilla sugar from the body shop. For perfume I wear Ralph Lauren Hot, which smells like summer!

Vanilla. If you find a pure essential oil, the strawberry scent is a good one but those are only good when they are 100% pure.

My absolute favourite has got to be Lotus flower. I have a big bottle of lotus extract from when I went on a trip and I love it.
I also like Vanilla, Baby powder (my deodorant is baby powder scented haha), and Lemon.

Lol. I think actually pure smell of horse is good. I mean that smell that you can find for example in your hands when you've handled horses and washed you hands few times after it (washing your hand washes smell of dirt, secretions etc. off, but at least I can still find some smell after that. It's pretty good and soft and stays around a day-two).

Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
