Aromas from the kitchen, scent from the boudoir, flowers from the garden: fragrances everywhere....As a baker girl/chef, it is no surprise that I am seduced by scent. In addition to working with fragrance and flavors in the bakery and kitchen, I also dabble in candle making, personal and custom perfumes, and hand milled soaps as well as home fashioned incense and potpourri. I am happy to share what I also sleuth out in the way of the best in special and unique scents (in toiletries, perfumes, aromatherapy oils, soaps, cosmetics, and incense) for my visitors. Sometimes, I stray to related niceties, such as books on the subject, or chimes, and other softer-side-of-lifestyle products. Here is where you will my reviews and special discoveries on scent, perfumes, soaps, candles, home fragrance, cosmetics, even men's scents, and sometimes a recipe or two for potpourri, homemade cologne, vanilla or lavender sleep pillows. Scent of a Baker is an oasis for your senses and it is moving to

Some candle companies are all about pretty packaging or trendy names and candle flavors - but they're mostly cosmetically correct. But when you want pretty, high performance, totally awesome candles that permeate the air even when not lit, Colonial Candle is an exceptional brand ot turn to. Their oval jar candles (in a variety of sizes) are a cut above (they just look wonderfully aesthetic) but the mediculous fragrancing concept is sans rival. Check out the site for the new collection of soy based candle as well as the selections in Afternoon Tea (London) collection -just in time for the Olympics. Of you can treat yourself to any of the great candle accessories including hurrican candle holders or the snap candle burners. If you order over $75 of candles (not hard to do with the offerings here), shipping is free. And to go with this wonderful Peach Cobbler candle from Colonial, a free recipe from Peachy Cobbler Squares
