Crisp Linen

The 2nd version of my laundry scent is a crisper, cleaner and sharper interpretation. The key notes are lavender - the classic linen scent; and petitgrain - which is simultaneously citrusy, leafy and flowery and with a very clean edge to it. The scent I've created reminds me of crisp linen, actually. Stiffened by the sun, and taken off the laundry line before nightfall will dampen or soften it.

I've tested it today, and it's wonderful both for the wash cycle (the laundry comes out smelling fresh and clean, with only 5 drops of the essential oil blend). Another 5 drops or so can be placed on a cloth or woolen dryer ball to give the laundry an extra oomph. And there are many other versatile uses for the blend which I will tell you about once it's ready, packaged and on the shelves!

I'm aiming for an April launch at the co-op boutique Giving Gifts & Co I'm part of, and am curious to see how the laundry line will be received in Eco-conscious Main street! 

Clean Laundry Scent

These days, I'm working on scent project that are different than perfume. Namely, the clean laundry scent. The scent of clean laundry should be crisp, and symbolize renewal. Yet there are so few green options out there. The scent I've created is versatile and can be used both in the laundry cycle (if like me, you are using an unscented, eco-friendly laundry soap); as well as scent reusable dryer sheets or felted wool ball that is used for the same purpose - reducing static, and freshly scenting your clothes and linens.

Lavender comes from the Latin word "Lavare", to wash, and has affirmed its association with linens and cleanliness. However, there is nothing original or particularly interesting about it, not to mention it is very fleeting. Therefore, I've combined lavender with other essences that will make the laundry smell fresh yet soft and comforting.
The scent will become available in April 2014, that you too can enjoy a green, clean and fragrant spring!
