    Talking Searching for a scent

    While I'm actually looking for a soy candle scent, I'm hoping all of you wonderful soapmakers will have some suggestions where to get a very specific scent. Here's my story:

    The anniversary of my grandmother's death is this winter. Traditionally, my dad and my aunt light a candle in her memory. I wanted to give them one they could burn that would have scent reminiscent of her, using her favorite perfume scent. She wore a scent called Design by Paul Sebastian. I've tried looking on a few soap & candle-making websites for a fragrance oil in this scent, but to no avail.

    Would any of you know how I could track down a candle scent in Design?

    Thanks so much for your help!!

    I looked it up and what I found says,"The notes of peach and gardenia enhanced by the sandalwood give Design a harmonious personality."

    Perhaps you could experiment with the essential oils of peach/gardenia/sandalwood to get the right combo.

    What about adding a few drops of the perfume into the melted wax?

    Is there anyone in your area that makes soy candles? If so wonder if it would be possible to contact them and explain to them what it is you're looking for and see if they'd be willing to work with you to come up with something. Might be worth a shot? I'd look on maybe craigslist or even in your local newspaper to see if anyones advertising homemade soycandles and give them a call. Heck, even put an ad on craigslist seeking out a maker of homemade soycandles including the name of the perfume and or combo of scents... worth a shot! Also keep your eye out for local craft fairs, nows the time they should be startin up, swing into a few over a weekend and you'll be sure to find atleast one or two candles vendors there. Strike up a conversation with them, explaining what you're looking for and why your looking for it, they may just have what you need right there! Good luck I hope you're able to find the candle in time. Sounds like a really beautiful idea.

    Design by Paul Sebastian 3.4-ounce EDP Spray from Overstock.com there's the perfume at overstock.com... maybe if you sprayed it on a tester strip, took it to a company that made candles and said that's the scent you want, they could do it..
