I know what blueberries smell like, I know what almonds smell like... But I don't know what 'clean laundry' and 'crackling firewood' smell like. I would love to try them all.. but too many to choose.. What are you're favorite uncommon scents from them?

read the reviews of the scents. it will help you pick out "good" ones. i've found that they can give you a fairly good idea of what its going to smell like....

you may want to take the reviews with a grain of salt, the admin on the site is removing anything slightly negative (on all products) so it all looks perfect and wonderful.

Also there are places that are more honest with their reviews and have better prices on their FO's. Natures garden comes to mind.

I have been ordering from them for so many years I can't remember what all I've tried. While not my personal favorites some of my biggest sellers in the past have been:
Lilac
Lavender
Love Spell
Sleep Time (EO Blend)
Ocean Water (A popular scent in soap but had TONS of special orders for my gel candles in this fragrance)

Some of my favorites:
Bedtime Bath
Beneath the Stars
Tranquil Tropics (special order)

I have crackling firewood, but I don't like it. I will use it to blend with something else.

Garden of Paradise (Ozone, Jasmine, Tropical Fruit, Rose and Mandarin Orange)

Sage and Citrus

Bergamot and Mandarin

Margarita Lime (Lime, Orange, Tequila)

Tropical Vacation (Pineapple, Coconut, Orange, Lime)

Lavender and Basil

but now I am sad that a hurricane is supposed to hit Wednesday - I hope it doesn't mess up UPS

Hazelnut Cappuccino sounds yummy!
WSP used to carry a Hazelnut chocolate that's really to die for.
I can't believe they discontinued it :x I've been hoarding my bottle....

Yeah, they smell great.

The Pink Type didn't come in. It was on sale for 50% off, the receipt said 'discontinued' and I was credited the $15. However, I'm not too happy that eight days after i placed the order - it's still listed for sale - and at only 25% off now. I sent them an unhappy email about that, we'll see if they do anything about it. My shipping was still the same cost, and had I known I would have gotten something else... so we'll see.

Anyway, they were all great. My favorite is sage and citrus. I will say the bergamot and mandarin was mostly mandarin - very strong orange, very light bergamot. The margarita lime was the same thing - very strong lime scent.

Cucumber Mint

I bought this one too--- loved it in the bottle. Hated it in the soap.

I have gotten quite a few from them and tried 3 so far and like them in the bottle and hate them in the soap. All 3 of those batches didn't work out. Now with saying that it might be very well that one recipe I used lard instead of shortening-- smelled like fish bait when thru-- could have been the lard, 2 batch seized completely and looks like lye settled on bottom and has dos and barley has scent- I think its unusable-- could also be that I didn't get the lye completely dissoloved, 3rd made a victorian rose--- smelled like rotting flowers for 5 weeks before it started to smell like a rose--- I was going to give it 6 weeks (if I could stand it that long) then if not better by 6 weeks --I mean surely right?!--I'd toss it. Then I kind of smells better not so rotteny flowers smell -- you can actually smell a little rose in there. I'm not saying that there stuff is bad Lots of people use it and love it and have great success but for me and my dumb luck... I'll probably use the rest I have in salts or lotions or smelly jellies-- scared to chance it again.

Good luck and hope all is well

Well, they were very nice about my little complaint. I was annoyed that I paid shipping for a 16 oz bottle that I didn't receive, so while this is a one time only thing now that I know their policy on discontinued items, I will be receiving another 16oz fo without additional shipping charges.

Question for those who buy FOs from WSP...

I have had mixed results from their FOs. A few have been quite nice but the icky ones outweigh the good ones for me by a mile. With so many other suppliers to chose from, I don't think I will reorder from them..Almost everyone that I did like has been discontinued now!!

I know everyones nose is different, and I do B&B, not CP, but 9 out of 10 scents I order from WSP I fall in love w/. Most other places I order 10 scents & sell 8 back off on ebay. WSP suits my nose very well.

I like the way they smell in the bottle. I just haven't luck with them in soap. I will try them in salts or jellies. I wont through them away-- they do smell yummy.

Sleep Time. It's in their essential oil blends. Also Lavender Type - another essential oil blend.
