Here on The Meltdown, we’ve now had a challenge that incorporated scents into blends such as a dessert and drink so now the only thing missing to finish this meal off is the main course. The challenge for myself this week is to make a dinner/food blend leaning more towards the savory side than the sweet if all possible.
The Menu For Today:
Elephants Deli Tomato Orange Soup (It is a thing look it up!)
Side of Cornbread Muffins.
- Pizza Time by Super Tarts– Basil, Raspberry & Tomato Leaf.
- Sweet Orange & Chili Pepper by Dessa’s Home Spun Scents-Sweet & spicy fusion of juicy oranges and fiery chili pepper.
- Down Home Muffins by Wilma’s Handmade– Good ol’ southern buttery sweet corn bread muffins! This is not your average corn bread scent.
Combined together this isn’t terrible though I wouldn’t call it my favorite either. Taking three fragrances that aren’t my cup of tea to begin with, mixing them all together and expecting them to magically be amazing is a shot in the dark. This blend comes together as more of a soup with the watery notes of the fresh orange and the spices of chili pepper from Dessa’s while the base or meat and potatoes if you will (not technically), of the soup coming from the tomato leaf. Who would have thought to mix orange and tomatoes together for a soup and having it actually work!? Warming by the licks of the tea lights candle wick, the ‘soup’ simmers and boils bringing a dinner time feel to my home.
I feel that having a form of bread when eating soup is a must whether it be crackers, bread or cornbread.(NOTE: Peanut butter sandwiches are the best with/dipped in vegetable soup!) Having Wilma’s Down Home Muffins on hand helped in deciding our side. Cornbread it is! The cornbread added a bakery, cornmeal type aroma to aid in thickening our soup while distributing its buttery goodness throughout the tomato juice.
In the end this was an interesting blend to play around with. Not one that I would melt again for the heck of it but if you enjoy a good savory scent give this one a try!
Until Next Melt,
