Scent of Dalaran
Smelling mint today in chemistry research reminded me of it. Back when I played WoW, I imagined Dalaran smelled a bit like the chemistry stock room (before they cleaned and organized it). Spicy with a creamy vanilla undertone; it smelled like magic to me. That was likely due to the vanillin and cinnamal plus other (probably bad for you) chemicals. Anyway, I tried to piece out the scents I would use in a candle, soap or even cookies (or cake/cupcakes). I came up with:
- Cinnamon (lots) & clove (hint) for that sharp, spicy tone
- Mint/Peppermint (some) remiscent of the cold breezes (considering the high latitude and elevation)
- Rum extract (some) for a heady, creamy finish though I imagine mulled wine or mead flavors/scents would add to the effect quite well.
