Lightbulb Hi! What are your TOP 5 Scents of all time?
Leaving out difference in soap formula or stick/puck forms, just the smell. Only the 5 scents you would bring to a desert island or if all other scents were going the way of the Twinkie...

Now, what do you think your significant other would choose for you?

5? I would be perfectly content with two scents: Bay Rum & Rose. I think my wife would agree.

Very interesting choices!

Thanks for all who have responded. Absolutely facinating choices. I had assumed that the choices would all fall within a scent range. ex: Light citris for a group, sandalwood / spicy in a group, not lime and rose or lemon and sandalwood.

Thanks for your input I sure do appreciate it.Smile

Excellent choice! If you ever get a chance, there is a wood called tamboti that is very similar to sandalwood but a bit sweeter it's an interesting scent.

we had some..I'll have to take a look around.
