What are your favorite scents?

I just started making soaps (cold process, from scratch) to give as "thank you" gifts to my massage clients.
I want to have a bit of a range of scents! So far I have made a batch of unscented, and I made a batch of lavender tea tree oil

The only essential oils I can buy (aka, only ones that are affordable and 100% natural) are:
white grapefruit (I am already buying this one)
Lavender (already bought this one)
Citronella (IDK.. sounds like bug spray, lol!)
Eucalyptus
Lemon
Lemongrass
Lime
Orange
Peppermint
Rosemary
Wintergreen
Ylang Ylang (a bit out of my price range but if I mix it with something else I can use it in small amounts)

So.. out of those, what are your favorites?

  • I know this is going to sound weird, but Wintergreen. (wait, is that the same as spearmint?) I absolutely love the smell of Ben-Gay. LOL.

  • But Lemongrass Grapefruit would smell great! I use that scent body wash by Dove. Rosemary Eucalyptus might be good too. Don't be afraid to mix them up! You'll be surprised at what smells good together!

  • Citronella is to keep bugs away!!!!!

    I like citrus smells: orange, grapefruit, lemon. I cannot due any floral scents, makes my allergies go crazy. Oh and I like coffee smells.
