3 Scents

Now that the Christmas Tree is gone, we have lost the beautiful smell of pine in our apartment….and how I miss it! So instead of pine trees, here are my three current scented obsessions!

Three smells in three different forms, material, sizes, and shapes! WAM!

White Sage Incense — Juniper Ridge

Juniper Ridge

Yep — incense! Made only with wildcrafted plants, tree sap, wood, and bark found hiking the backcountry. No hidden ingredients. No charcoal or perfume. It is a great incense that is reminiscent of sitting around the campfire and roasting smores! It is very earthy, or like “sunlight on varnished desert rock.”

White sage

White sage. Sage is held sacred by many Native Americans because of its effective purifying energies. It heals by bringing the patient back into balance, cleansing the body and mind of negative spirits, and impurities. Burning sage incense is the perfect way to burn negative energy out of your house!


I love opening my closet and having a good whiff of freshness (versus the alternative of stale and old air), so this scented oval is the perfect addition to any closet or small space. It smells like floral and sweet heaven.

Pretty packaging, as always.

Pretty packaging, as always.

You can bury it in a drawer, slip it into a cupboard of clean and fresh household linens, hang it in your closet. Each oval of scented wax has a discreetly luxurious style.

Frederic Malle En Passant Perfume


┬áMy current favorite perfume, En Passant, smells like Spring. It is lilac, which reminds me of spring in Eugene. The perfect note — not to heavy and not too subtle. Just right. This radiant and serene perfume captures the lilac along with orange leaves and cucumber. Spring at its finest.


Sample. Thank you, Barneys. LOVE.

So there you have it; delicious, aromatic, sweet, soothing smells! What scents are you loving these days?
