Dear Mavin - Scent Oil Question

Dear Maven,

I want to know why the catalog states on page 19 that you can use Cranberry Flirtini Home Fragrance Oil in the Scentmate™ but you can’t use it in the ScentIt! Rock Garden. Could you please explain that? Shouldn't all the oils be for every use?

Perplexed by “Optimal Performance”

Dear Perplexed,

I am so glad you asked this question. I, too, have found myself in this same Home Fragrance Oil quandary. When Gold Canyon released more fragrance options of the wonderful Home Fragrance Oils, I was thrilled. After all, a girl can never have too many Home Fragrance Oils!

That got me thinking … How could I clearly explain the “optimal performance” of our Home Fragrance Oils to other fragrance devotees like myself? Then it came to me―an object lesson that could be universally understood by women across North America: Having a personal stockpile of Home Fragrance Oils you love is very much like having a closet full of shoes you love. Yes, you CAN wear your faux crocodile four-inch stilettos with a sun dress, or those new canvas espadrilles with a business suit, but really, SHOULD you?

The same logic can be applied to Home Fragrance Oils. All the options are fabulous, but some work best when combined with a particular fragrance application. How do we know which fragrances work best with the ScentMate or ScentIt! Rock Garden? Gold Canyon’s R & D department conducts rigorous testing on the intensity of each fragrance oil. After logging hours and hours of some serious evaluating, they determined that some Home Fragrance Oils perform best only when used with certain fragrance applications, while others perform well with all applications. The chart found in the catalog page 19 is merely a reference tool to ensure optimal performance of Home Fragrance Oil. When a Home Fragrance Oil achieves optimal performance, it has met Gold Canyon’s strict guidelines for fragrance strength, intensity and character requirements. Think of it as an episode of “What Not to Wear” for your Home Fragrance Oils.

In closing, as we celebrate our freedom this Independence Day, remember this: You are free to use your Home Fragrance Oils with whichever fragrance application you choose! (Just don’t be surprised if you notice that the fragrance strength, intensity and character may not perform as well if you wander outside the guidelines of the Optimal Performance Chart.)

Your Fellow Fragrance Oil Fanatic,

Colour - Lavender

Lavender has long been a favorite flower and color of genteel ladies. This shade of purple suggests refinement along with grace, elegance, and something special.

Purple and its lighter lavender shades has a special, almost sacred place in nature: lavender, orchid, lilac, and violet flowers are often delicate and considered precious.

While purple is the color of royalty, lavender is the color of femininity. It's a grown up pink.

Use the color lavender to suggest something unique or extremely special but without the deeper mystery of purple. Lavender may be a good choice when you are targeting women and want to invoke feelings of nostalgia or romance.

Flameless Candles!

For some, the rules that come with burning candles can be tiring and a nuisance, and as a result, the person just quits burning candles all together.  But Gold Canyon had a solution to that, which are our wickless candles!

If you have never tried one of our pod warmers, you are missing out!  These are great because they plug in and have a timer on them, so you do not have to remember to turn it off.  Simply take your favourite scent pod, take off the lid, and set it on the warmer and you are done.  The wax will slowly melt and release the scent for you to enjoy. 

The scent will last a minimum of 20 hours.

Dear Maven - Oil Adapter?

Please help! I'm LOVING all of the new Home Fragrance Oils - especially the Scent Blend Duos! But why do I have to have an Oil Adapter? What happens if I just put the oils directly on my current Scent Pod® Warmer?
Oooh! Pouring oil directly on the Pod Warmer is not advised. Why, you ask? Well, let me give you a quick Pod Warmer anatomy lesson: The electrical components are housed below the warming plate. The plate is NOT sealed, so the oil will leak into the unit. This will not only damage the unit, but will also cause danger of electrical shock! We never want to risk severe injury and/or property damage, and pouring Home Fragrance Oil directly onto your Pod Warmer could easily do just that.

The adapter is not only a safe bet, but is of course trés chic and such a great value! Available in three oh-so-neutral colors to suit your favorite Pod Warmer designs, this little wonder is a must-buy for any Scent Blend Duo Diva. Happy blending!

Dear Maven - Chalkboard Doodles?

Hi Maven!

I just LOVE the new Summer catalog and the Look Book is fabulous! I have a couple of questions about the MyStyle - Chalkboard Doodles on page 73. Are those place cards just cut up pieces from the labels and what is wrapped around the base of the Changing Seasons Holder?

I really wish I could take credit for these cool ideas, but the truth is, I had to hang out with some of the creative gals in Marketing to get the answers to your questions. 

Good eye! Yes, those are MyStyle - Chalkboard Doodles that the design team actually cut into thirds and used as place cards in the Straight Votive Glass. I loved the idea as soon as I saw it! The base of the Changing Season’s Holder is actually another piece of the MyStyle - Chalkboard Doodle that was horizontally cut in half to creatively hide the feet of the holder. Oooooh! I see now … you almost forget those feet are there when you see this Look Book display.

There are so many ways to get crafty with MyStyle labels, but I want to see how you like to use them! Send us your crafty creations (via photo of course) and we may feature them in our next Candid Corner or right here in the most read column in the newsletter! J

We always want to hear from you. If you and your customers want to see a product developed or fragrances return, send them to us—we are always tracking your requests!

Why buy a Pod Warmer?

Have you tried a Gold Canyon pod warmer or heard about one?  If not, you are missing out!  This is what makes them so great!

Plug in – There is no bulb in these warmers.  You plug it in and there is an element that warms up and melts the wax pod

Pods – You do not put the wax directly in the warmer, you put the plastic pod into the well and the element melts the wax which releases the scent.  The plastic on the pod is designed not to melt.  Pods release scent for at least 20 hours.

Timer – There is a timer on these warmers, so it will run 4, 8 or 12 hours and you do nto have to turn it off.  This is a great option!

Oil Adapter – You can now get an oil adapter for your warmer so that you can use your favourite essential oils with it.

Dear Maven - Eco Friendly

Hello Maven,

Everyone wants to do their part to make the world a better place! Other than the natural plant-based ingredients that make up Homeology®, what other products would you say Gold Canyon has that are eco-friendly?

Your Eco-Friendly Soul

So glad you asked because I've got just the perfect photograph to illustrate my answer to your question! As shown above, not only are Gold canyon’s Homeology products eco-friendly, we’ve also got our line of Essentially Soy Aromatherapy™ candles. These are simply amazing if you haven’t tried them yet.

Essentially Soy Aromatherapy candles are also plant-based as they are a plant-based soy wax blend. And just in case you’ve already got some pre-conceived notions about soy, don’t worry—Gold Canyon’s soy candle has a stronger fragrance throw than any other soy candle on the market. And to top it off, the outer box packaging is also eco-friendly, certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative
®. As they like to say “Good for you. Good for our forests.®

Now that I’ve schooled you on our eco-friendly products, I’d also like to point out that GC always supports being eco-friendly and encourages the re-use of candle jars. That of course includes our Essentially Soy Aromatherapy candle jar, and most importantly our diamond-cut glass Heritage jar and modern Bella jar. There are so many uses for your home, office, kitchen, craft projects, etc, etc. Oh, I’ll just have to make a separate Maven column designated just for this topic! If you have crafty ways of using your candle jars, please do send them my way so I can share with everyone—I’ll give you credit of course!

Your real friend at GC,
