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”
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.)
