Default Favorite Sweet Cake Scents?

I thought I'd get a few last minute fragrances for B&B and liquid soaps. Got through the letter H with $120 in my cart

Um... what are your "must have" scents from this company?

I have a lot of favorites from Sweet Cakes.
Ralph Lauren Blue
Molten Brown Nara Ji
Orange Blossom
Ginger Essence
Sandalwood
Linden Blossom
Lavender Breeze and Lemon Verbena are also very nice, but I have found lavender and verbena FOs that I like as well elsewhere too.

If you are wondering about something specific, ask. I may have tried it. Or if you are looking for something in particular, ask that too.

I just bought a ton of 1 oz bottles from SC, but I haven't soaped most of them yet. But, like Dibbles mentioned, if there's one you're particularly interested in, I'd be happy to give you my OOB opinion.
I used the Brown Sugar in a sugar scrub recently, and while it's nice, it's has too much of a maple scent for me.
I used their White Vanilla in a soap, and while it's a very mild vanilla, it definitely does not discolor.

I’ve only used two of their fragrances: candy cane and the Irish spring dupe.

The dupe is spot on but very overwhelming for me. I scent heavy and gifting a bar for Christmas last year gave me a bit of a migraine - I could barely touch the bag that had 6 bars in it (intended as a gag gift except I was the one gagging)

Candy cane is my preferred mint right now (Not that I’ve tried many). It is exactly as described, a sweet minty scent.

Thanks all! I was actually on the hunt for an Aveda type Sap Moss dupe. But there are so many other scents with intriguing descriptions to tempt me.

I hardly know where to begin with FOs. I just started branching out from EOs a few months ago, and after a rocky start, I'm totally hooked. I want to gather some random scents for a well-rounded selection, so I have something interesting for every nose. Something from every category, so fruity, spicy, earthy, salty, etc.

One thing I can tell you about the Ralph Lauren Blue, is that it is a very light scent. Nice in B&B things and M&P, but probably not the best for CP. I love it enough to keep it around for 'other than soap'. I struggle with most florals.

Is it a buttery bakery sort of vanilla or something like vanilla extract?

I forgot about Masculine Musk - that's a good one!
