Band of Bloggers | May

You know what they say, April shower and all that jazz! Happy May, and welcome to the Band of Bloggers! We hope this post finds you well, and we hope the first half of your 2016 has been treating you right. Please join us in this month's conversation below, we love hearing feedback from our readers!

I don't know about the rest of you, but where I live, it's warm almost all the time. We barely have a fall season, and it hardly ever rains. I hate the heat, so in essence, I am forced to live with something I don't particularly like! 

My Band Of Bloggers question for May is: if you had to choose 1 or 2 scents you absolutely dread and you had to melt and smell them only for the rest of your life, what would they be and why? And also, why do you dislike them in the first place?

Oh boy, the heat the heat. I live in Singapore, a country just slightly above the equator, so daily temperatures are at least 30 degrees (85F) and with very humidity levels. We are constantly drenched in perspiration here. When our first Prime Minister, the late Lee Kuan Yew was asked what was the most influential innovation of the millenium, he replied, "the air-conditioner". Air-conditioners gave us comfortable and conducive environments to work!

Back onto Lauren's question itself, I would say Birthday Cake and Zucchini Bread. These are real popular scents in the community so I know I am definitely an outlier here. I don't dislike the scents itself per say but the heaviness and texture of it. With the type of heat around here, these are scents that are too heavy for me to melt. And rather than it being comforting, they are oppressive instead! However, like I said, the scents itself aren't disgusting to me so I would still melt them. At least my home will smell like a yummy bakery!
