Favorite Holiday Fragrances

Gold Canyon added a new feature to the catalog this year so we can see which fragrances are the most popular with customers during this season (based on past years' sales, obviously). **Not listed in any particular order, this list will give you the best seller in each of our fragrance categories.

So, if you're looking for a gift idea or want to try something new yourself, this list of "favorites" would be a great place to start:

Relaxing (aromatherapy)
Warm Apple Crisp (baking)
Woods & Vanilla Romantique (boutique chic)
Caramel Macchiato (cafe velluto)
Warm Welcome (comforts of home)
Citrus Cream (inspirations)
Pineapple & Cilantro (pillars)
Sweet Pea (buds & blossoms fragrances)
Clean Sheets (clean & fresh fragrances)
*Cozy Christmas (fruits & citrus fragrances)
Holiday Wreath (nature & outdoors fragrances)
Pumpkin Pie (sugar & spice fragrances)

*I do have to warn you that even though Gold Canyon places Cozy Christmas in the fruits & citrus fragrance category because it has some of those undertones, it is a VERY sugar & spice fragrance according to me & every customer that I've talked with. Its description is that its a blend of cinnamon, clove, apple, and orange & the spices here definitely overpower the fruits. Its a great fragrance (really smells like Christmas!), but if you're looking for a fruit fragrance its probably not your best choice. If you're really looking for a fruit fragrance but also something that has the richness of fall, I'd recommend Cranberry Orange . . . its one of my personal favorites!

So, what's your favorite fragrance for the fall/holiday season?

Halloween Night Scent Blend with Gold Canyon

Try this fragrance recipe to get you in the mood for Halloween! Talk about yummy!

Scent Blending Recipes are carefully selected recipes of individual candles that when burning together, create their own unique, blended scent experience.

To maximize your fragrant experience, use the exact sizes and quantities noted in each recipe – a slight alteration can be like adding salt when you needed sugar.

FIRST: Arrange the candles on a heat-safe surface with the largest in the middle and smaller candles interspersed throughout. For votive and Tealight candles, use a holder to protect the surface.

SECOND: Place each candle approximately two inches apart in your arrangement.

THIRD: Light each candle and let the aromas mingle for at least 30 minutes to create your new fragrance experience.

Halloween Night

· Apple Spice tealights – 3

· Toffee Drizzled Popcorn tealights – 2

· Old Fashioned Licorice - 5 oz.

· Candy Corn – 15.5 oz.

· Butterscotch Caramels – 13 oz.

A fun Halloween party isn’t complete without a game of bobbing for apples and the most sought-after scents of popcorn, licorice, candy corn and caramels. This blend is smooth and oh, so sweet. Trick-or-treaters will be left wanting more than just candy!

Halloween Purchases

We're coming down to the wire! If you want to make sure you get your order in time for Halloween, I'd place it soon! On the east coast, it can take 2 to 3 weeks for order delivery as we're in the thick of the busiest season for both Gold Canyon & UPS. Check out some Halloween ideas here. If you see something you like, you can order at or just let me know & I can place the order for you.

Halloween Treats

Since I've been sharing some favorite Halloween display ideas, it got me thinking about favorite Halloween treats. One of the easiest & certainly most delicious treats to put together for your Halloween parties is just to combine an equal portion of candy corn with salted, dry roasted peanuts. Grab a handful to munch on & you'll be sold on this winning combination!

If you want to put a little more time into it, you could try these creepy creations that I found on a blog that I follow.

Double Host Credit!

Do you like FREE stuff! Our host program is very generous & it just got better for you! I'm offering DOUBLE host credit (free stuff) for anyone who does a catalog party this fall, turning in your orders to me in November or December.

Those will be tough months for my business since I'll be moving across the country in November & having a baby in December! So, I wanted to say "thanks" to those who are able to help me keep things going with a catalog party in either month by giving you that extra host credit.

How much could you earn? Sell $400 with your catalog party (very easy to do during the holidays!) and you would normally earn $60 in free products of your choice, but with my double credit offer, I'll give you $120 in FREE products of your choice!


E-mail me today to get your host packet & start collecting orders.
