I've been doing A LOT of updating the current scent archives since the Bath and Body Works Semi Annual Sale last month. I need to branch out creatively, and what better way to do that than to imagine Hermione Granger in candle form? What would she smell like? What Label would best suit her? What fragrance notes would be found within? What color would she be?

Oud is a symbol of warm hospitality, wealth and luxury. An uncontainable flood of emotions... sound like anyone we know? Warm Hospitality + uncontainable flood of emotions... yes, this is a good first impression of Hermione. In Japan, the plum symbolizes the "3 friends of Winter", plum, bamboo, and pine tree. In this situation, plum could symbolize the 3 friends of Hogwarts, Harry, Ron and Hermione. They did some of their best work over Christmas Holiday. 3 Friends of Winter indeed. All 3 are representative of life and good fortune even during the colder/bleaker parts of the year. Jamaican White Rum represents the ability to call forth millions of benevolent spirits, So it's supernatural and one of the good guys, just like Hermione. We have already established Iris means intelligence, one of Hermione's most defining traits, so having iris as a MID note is exactly where it belongs. Jasmine symbolizes Love, Romance and Friendliness. As we follow the love story that is Ron & Hermione, we can clearly see BOTH Hermione and Ron are Romantics at heart. The difference between the two being Hermione is an optimist, and Ron is a pessimist. A match made in heaven! Saffron I would attribute to the glorious gold of Gryffindor's red and gold colors. Ancient writers referred to Amber as Hero's Sweat. What more of a lasting impression can she leave? She is a hero in every sense of the word. Anyone who has saved the world multiple times can claim that title. Amber is also tied to magic, and was worn by magic workers, who believed they were charge with powerful energies. Hermione is first and fore-most, a witch, and a POWERFUL one to boot. Definitely a defining feature of who she is and who she will always be. The energy found within Amber is an electric charge, if you rub it between silk or wool. Hermione has the lasting power of a shock. If she shocks you, you don't forget it. When you encounter her, she is unforgettable. She might teach you something you will remember for the rest of your life. She's one of those shocks. Strong enough to almost kill you, and it sure feels like she could have. The kind of shock that you learn from. Hermione is always teaching. In dreams, caramel represents an event in your life so upsetting, it sucks the joy out of you. This could easily represent the struggle Hermione has gone through with Voldemort and constantly having to thwart his evil plans. This is not pleasant, but it is certainly part of who she will always be. One who struggled mightily with He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
