My nose works on overdrive. If I were a super hero I would be SUPER SMELLER! Okay, lame... But seriously, my nose can sniff out things before other people. And in a house full of 5 boys that can be a bad, bad thing.
I am a smell person. Smell is important to me. Have you noticed that the people in your life have a specific smell that is just theirs? Maybe it is their cologne, hair spray, or laundry soap they use. Well, my house has a smell. And it isn't from the personal hygiene items we use. It is called Fresh Fruit and it comes from something called Beanie Melts. I have used them for about 4 years and I LOVE them BIG time.
This is going to come off as cheesy, but I think that not only should your home look nice and reflect who you are but it should smell nice too. I think it completes the whole experience. Does that even make sense? As creative people we are very visual and that is the first thing we notice are the way something or someone looks. But if you walked into a gorgeous house but it smelled like rotten garbage, it wouldn't be the same. Sorry, I didn't mean to go on a smell rant......
My sister told me about them after I asked her why her house always smells so good. They are made by Ashman Candles (here in UTAH!!!). Beanie Melts look like someone melted a candle in an ice cube tray. You pop out 4 at a time and put them in a warmer thingy. Actually I use a mason jar on top of a candle warmer. Works great!
I love them so much and when my husband was unemployed and we couldn't afford to buy anything but the essentials (and sometimes not even that), I went through some serious withdrawal. My house went from smelling amazing to smelling like.....5 boys.
I love them so much that I contacted the company to see if I could write a post about them. Really. I did. Normally a company contacts me and requests that. But I honestly love them enough to break the bloggy rules. :)
While my favorite is called Fresh Fruit, they have a TON of different scents. And they don't just have the Beanie Melts.......
(That rootbeer candle sounds yummy!)
Ashman candles let me try their sent called Holiday Home Coming. Normally I am a strictly Fresh Fruit kinda gal, but HOLY MOLY! My house now has a new holiday smell! I can't handle a strong cinnamon smell so I am always hesitant to get the holiday type candles. This one rocked my socks! The description from their site is: A warm slice of orange gingerbread topped with vanilla ice cream. It is now my husbands favorite.
I have a treat for you today!!!! Ashman candles is offer you all a 20% off discount when you use the code christmas11.
I am kind of giddy! I really want you to try them. And if you do order, try the Fresh Fruit Beanie Melts. AMAZING! Then your house can have my house's smell :)
