So I'm thinking about putting an order in today to get my candle-making supplies. I'm only going to buy a few things, just to test it out, but I need some help...I'm going to run a little contest.
I'm having trouble deciding which scents I want to try out. I'm going to list a few categories with some scents associated with each and I want everyone to vote on which scents they think I should try. Everyone who comments with their suggestions will be put into a pool and I will randomly select one winner to receive a free sample of each scent with free shipping! Yay!! I will also take the scent most voted for in each category as the scents I will order. One entry per person, and spam does not count. So, here we go:Autumn ScentsApple Cinnamon

**Please note that these scent names are provided by the website I'll be getting my scents from. I'm still going to research more places to get fragrances, provided this test run goes well. I may or may not change the names to my own choosing once I make the candles and see what they smell like once burned.
***I will end this contest at 10am my time tomorrow morning, which is central time.
Okay folks, voting is closed!! Watching a movie while I do administrative work (heh, sounds official, doesn't it? :P), meaning tallying votes and finding a random generator to pick a winner! I will post results later today, and thank you everyone for your participation!!
