“Secret Perfume” scented embroidery thread from DMC

I have been reading about the scented thread recently announced by DMC. The range is called “Secret Perfume” and is the type of stranded embroidery cotton used in cross-stitch work. I have not tried the thread myself but it sounds like fun. I would be interested to hear the views of those who have tried it.

Secret perfume from DMCThere are twelve colours in the range which is divided into three aroma themes – “Flower Bouquet”, “Tutti-Frutti”, and “Delicacies”.

The “Flower Bouquet includes fresh fragrances such as Rose, Lavender, Lily of the Valley and Honeysuckle.

The “Tutti-Frutti” includes tangy scents including lemon, orange, apple and strawberry.

The “Delicacies” includes delicious aromas such as vanilla, almond, caramel and chocolate.

The perfume for each fragrance is released with your touch; while you stitch or when the thread is rubbed. DMC claim that “Secret Perfume” threads retain their scent for several months and will last for about twenty washes.

The cotton embroidery floss can be purchased from the usual DMC outlets including Stitcher in the UK and the DMC Online Shop in the USA.

    I for sure would use scented thread! Im wishing I had some right now in fact. Can you imagine the look on the card recipients face when they opened their easter card and the scent of chocolate was coming from the bunnies or eggs? I know I will be asking my craft supplier when they will be getting this thread, and hoping it comes in time for the summer birthday cards.

    Yes, i would love to use it. I only stitch on cards so i think this would be lovely as when the envelope was opened by the recipient just think of the nice surprise they would get.

    On cards it will be great –only use scent at a time. The cross stitchers are not so impressed. But I think I wouold use it in cross stitching also if it was one color design or use only one scented color. cathy

    I would enjoy working with scented embroidery yarn. What a surprise for the recipient it would be. Lovely.

    I would love to try it. Don’t think I would on cross stitch project but would definitely try it on card embroidery. I’ll be checking out where to get it this week.

    I am very doubtful about the practicalities of this. How long would the scent last? I have some threads ages old, would they still smell nice? What about storing the threads? Would you have to keep each one completely separate from the rest? No I don’t think I’ll be buying, thank you.

    I would love to try it—I feel the cost is kind of high with shipping and all—-about 2.00 each—limited time only–does’nt say if you can order seperately—and with 6.00 shipping, you sure would’nt order just 1 or 2—-you know what I mean? I don’t know of a local place to buy either—at least that would save the shipping!
