Band of Bloggers March 2017 Vol. 15

Welcome to the March edition of Band of Bloggers!  Hopefully this month begins to bring more temperate weather and the first signs of spring! In my neck of the woods, conditions have been alternating between crazy heavy rain/high winds and beautiful sunshine and blooming flowers. I hope the weather will stabilize a bit this month. Since the month of March usually holds the first signs of spring, that begs the question:

What scent are your favorite scents to melt and wear for spring?
Are you a fan of traditional spring scents such as florals, fresh/clean, earthy, herbal, etc?
Do you consider yourself a seasonal melter (melting scents traditionally associated with a particular season in that season?)

I myself do like many traditional spring scents. I like several florals, my favorites being rose and violet. I don't care for some super strong, overly "perfumey" florals though; some can just be too much. I like fresh scents like rain and breezes as long as they don't smell artificial. I despise anything that smells like a harsh air freshener or laundry detergent. I also enjoy many herbal and green scents, especially things like a well done version of grass.
I feel I do like many of the scents traditionally associated with each season and I like melting scents that I haven't melted in a long time, but I'm not a strictly seasonal melter because I've been known to melt whatever I feel like when the mood strikes. I'm not above huffing a bit of pumpkin bakery in the middle of spring or melting some coconut in December.

We hope you'll join the fun and leave your own answer in the comments below.
And we hope you'll visit these Band of Blogger blogs and help support the blogger community!

  1. "I'm not above huffing a bit of pumpkin bakery in the middle of spring..."

    Oh lordee, girl, The Fall Slut has her eye on you.

    I like the occasional whiff of grass or rain scent. I'm always wowed that they're able to reproduce such scents in a bottle of oil. I don't like them for a lengthy tart melt though.


  2. I used to despise grassy scents, but my nose is changing and I'm more accepting of them. I agree about laundry or detergent scents, too harsh; I think I may have scent you a perfumey one from CFTKR, so just pass it along if not your type. I'm into coconut all year and Yankee has a Christmas at the Beach scent that helps me pretend;)

  3. I think Bath and Body Works would agree with your coconut-in-the-winter philosophy - they've been pushing holiday coconut scents (huh?) for a number of years now. I, too, like to majorly mix it up every now and then, if only to sort of clear out my scent palette - if it's all fruity-bakery all the time, things get very boring!

  4. You are both love those roses and violets <3 I don't mind melting coconut in the winter either! But probably not sunscreen coconut, more like a coconut vanilla or bakery. I am not sure if I have had a grass scents that I really love. But I have had a few dirt scents I liked. Once there was a dirt and Rose Jame blend that went surprisingly well together. Thank you for a fabulous BoB this month, Amanda! <3

  5. Aaah, roses and violets. You and I will get along just fine. :) LOL
    I've discovered some amazing dirt/fresh scents in personal fragrance, but not in wax form. I can't say I mind laundry detergent as a scent, it just needs to be blended with something else to tone it down.

  6. I love minty mixed with green/grass smells. Great read, love your posts.
