Sniff your armpit, an onion, or some coffee if you're dealing with scents. It acts as a reset button, so to speak. Vanilla and lavender sounds like a nice combo you can try. Ylang ylang, frankincense, and sandalwood might breed another good combination. You could also think about using the EOs in whipped butters or something.

Old fragrance oils

I mix them in a potpourri base, sew them up in small, inexpensive organza bags, and hand them out as samples/gifts.

I love lavender, Rosemary and frankincense, sub sandalwood for the rosemary and I bet it's nice. Lavender mint is good too. I bet birch and sandalwood would be a nice masculine scent.

Lavender mint is a classic and one of my all time favs.

I wonder what rose/peppermint would be like? I really like to experiment with uncommon blends. I would test birch/violet too.

I can only experiment with rosewater and peppermint EO. Sounds interesting.

I'm guessing you want your soap to be blue? If so, watch out for vanilla and sandalwood as they can discolor to brown. For a soap called Blue Skies, I think peppermint and violet or ylang ylang would be pretty. Also, please don't take offense and I don't mean to be a grammar nazi, but if you're giving this away and/or making labels, please don't use "Blue Sky's", as it's incorrect.
