    So... you don't think that a soap or lotion called *monkey farts* would sell?

    I've made a soap with Monkey farts and put cocoa powder in it - it looks just like a piece of fudge. I called it "chocolate Monkey farts" and it sold very well just for the name! Everyone thought it smelled like chocolate even though really the cocoa powder didn't lend fragrance to it and there was no chocolate fragrance in it. I think they saw chocolate and it made them think it smelled like it!

    I don't smell peach rings at all - smells like banana's and berries to me!

    "A Best Seller! Oh what a treat! We know you are expecting to read a disgusting description, but this unique complex fragrance is anything but disgusting! This unique fragrance begins with top notes of fresh bananas and juicy grapefruit, middle notes of kiwi, juicy bubblegum, and strawberries; and a hint of vanilla as a base note. Sure to attract new customers! "

    This is Nature's Garden (www.candlepro.com) description of their Monkey Farts.
    My sister has that in her candles, but I haven't brought myself to soaping it yet.

    'Fruiti toots' Now that's funny!

    I smelled this in a lotion once and it smelled like bananas mostly to me. *If* I ever did soap it or make lotion I'd have to rename it. Just like I renamed Dragon's Blood. Just can't bring myself to use that name.

    I had to rename Dragon's Blood too. That name just would not go over well here. There is another vendor here that does Monkey Farts. She kept the name but it is in her kids line. Her stuff is really cute.

    The name is why my sister is able to sell it so well. That and Butt Naked... :blush
    I kept Dragon's Blood..it's such a nice dark color...like blood. Doesn't bother me for some reason...

    I renamed my Dragon's Blood, Eragon hoping that anyone savvy enough would recognize it and associate it with a dragon. Otherwise, they don't have a clue and just go by smell. LOL

    Um, what does Butt Naked smell like? The name doesn't bring any particular smell to mind.

    We dasn't forget "Lick Me All Over" another popular scent simply because of it's name.


    Butt Naked- "We have had so many requests for this...now we have it! The tantalizing base note medley of granny smith apples and honeydew melon, middle notes of strawberries and pears, with hints of spice" Again taken from candlepro.com. Their description.

    Lick Me All Over- "A wonderful exotic fragrance with base notes of raspberry, cantaloupe, and watermelon, middle notes of jasmine and violet, and fresh top notes of grapefruit and kumquat" (candlepro.com)
