...and the winner is...

Where did June go, seriously? Last thing I remember was setting up the Name That Scent Contest...then bam!...it is July 4th already. I hope everyone enjoyed our little American holiday weekend.

So Monday was the big day, the day I had to finally pick the Name Contest winner for the scent formally known as Sarong. The contest turned out to be huge! I got hundreds of entries and so many fabulous names. It gave me a mild panic attack trying to choose a winner. There were funny names, elegant names, clever names...oh my! In the end I finally narrowed it down to a handful of my favorites (and most fitting to my current line). I then enlisted help of some of my family and friends who happened to be nearby and took a vote to pick a winner (since there was no way I would be able to choose).

The official name chosen was "Wylde Summer". To me, this is the scent of summer...THE SCENT. It takes me back to being at the beach years ago, baking in the sun, sand clinging to your skin, the salt water drying in your hair, suntan lotion melting off your skin. Ah, those were the days! I can still hear the waves crashing and the seagulls screaming. Since this is such an important scent to me, it is fitting that it should carry the "Wylde" name!

Since I had such a hard time choosing, I also sent prizes to the creators of the "runner up" names. I would like to try and tinker in my workshop and come up with some scents to go with those names. Oh, and there were also the three winners for the name draw part of the contest. All winners will be listed below.

A huge, huge thank you for everyone who joined in the Name That Scent Contest. I had so much fun, I'm already planning a new contest soon!
