Some things smell great when they burn

- Maybe Nero

While experiencing my first s’more, someone threw herbs into the bonfire filling the air with a pleasant smell. At that moment, I thought about other scents things produce when burning down and the memories that can be associated with them.

How about a brand focused on the smells of burning things?

Variation A

I can sell a fancy bowl that acts as a mini-fireplace. Then, I sell bundles of stuff to burn in the bowl. Maybe I could use small linen sacks that I fill with dried herbs.

Variation B

I strap good-smelling things onto a small, wooden plate, which I can throw into a fireplace, bonfire, or grill so they produce a great smell (and might even flavour the food on the grill).

Possible things to burn

  • Rosemary
  • Pine
  • Orange Peel
  • Lemon Peel
  • Cinnamon
  • Dried Herbs
  • Cedar Wood
  • Apple Wood
  • Charcoal
  • Myrrh
  • Rose Pedals
  • Sweetgrass
  • Tobacco
  • Lavender
  • Wood from whisky barrels

Idea Dump

  • Names: Stuff to Burn; Scented Fire; Smelly Flames
  • Bundles for special occasions: the smell of a cosy winter
  • The same effect as essential oils promise to have? (Calming, Stress-Relief, ...)
  • When selling on a wooden board, I can arrange it to look like a piece of art - that gets thrown into the fire.
  • Local ingredients - the smell of North Carolina
  • Recipes for flavoured meat
  • Be sure that there are no negative health effects

The excection of an idea is 100 times more important then the idea itself. To reach my dreams, I have to put in the hours to focus on one plan to learn (and share) how to perfectly excecute it. Because I don't want my other ideas to go to waste I decided to share them all!
