Today’s question is:

What is your favorite holiday treat and why?

Mine are butter spritz cookies!  My mom used to make them every year, and I thought that spritz gun was darned awesome :D  It reminded me of the Play Doh barber shop set that we had.  I loved the way it squirted the cookie shapes out.  Though you can eat the cookies, and you shouldn’t eat Play Doh ;)

Today’s prize is a 5ml EdP spray of Mermaid’s Carnation for one lucky winner!

She sits quietly upon the shore, untangling her locks of hair. She has a shell full of treasures. Within lays a small pink flower. A carnation. Sweetly scented it makes her wonder what exactly it is, that humans do…a scent which has clean, light florals, with a bit of spice.

Perfume Ingredients: sandalwood, peru balsam, genet, carnation, rose, black current, lavender, rosewood, pink grapefruit, bergamot

Day 9 of Esscentual Alchemy’s Advent Calender

Today’s question is:

If you were stranded on a desert island during the holidays, what holiday comfort would you want with you and why?

I’m going to choose a big roast turkey dinner :D  That way I could get a little of everything, and be resourceful and have leftovers.  I’d also take Mitch Miller and the Gang Christmas Album for listening fun ;)

Today’s question is:

Do you read Holiday stories/novels during this time of year at your house?

We read The Night before Christmas if I remember it. ;)  I do love that story, and does anyone else remember the little cartoon that used to be shown on tv?  It was about the clockmaker and his family, and then in their house, was a mouse family.  The clockmaker made a special clock to get Santa to come, after the mouse son had written a letter to the editor of the town paper saying that Santa was a fake.

Tell me about the most unique gift you ever got?

Some of the most unique gifts I’ve gotten are from my kids as they got old enough to create something of their own for Mama :)  I cherish every one though!Also the year that Kevin got me the DIY perfume kit, and we all know where that lead me ;)  Down the rabbit hole of good smells!!

Esscentual Alchemy’s 12 Days of Holiday Fun 2013 – Day 6

The Scentual Sunday version ;)

Today’s question is What is your favorite Holiday tune and why do you love it?  It can be sacred, or secular.

I don’t know if this is really a “Christmas tune,” but it’s quite honestly one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard.  This piece was the Men’s Chorus for All State one year in high school.  I have never forgotten the emotion the music stirred in my soul, surrounded by beautiful men’s voices in a choir of 300 or so.  Somethings just make you cry out of their sheer beauty <3

Ave Maria by Franz Biebl.

Please leave a beautiful clip for me to enjoy :)

Today is Winner’s Choice of a 5ml EdP spray from my regular line (no limited editions)
