That sounds AMAZING AMAZING! I am willing to volunteer myself as a tester? lol A serum or face oil? Would be great!!! Your facial products are the best!!!!

I really like the idea or a healing balm as well.....

Angela, I used a tart today that is so freaking delicious ! I want body products in this scent : Egyptian Musk. This is such a gorgeous scent on its own, and I bet it would be really pretty mixed with a lot of your existing scents. Can you get this oil?

Edited to say that I am a complete dunce geek I just reread the description for Gehenna, and of course you can get the oil! Would you make Egyptian Musk available as a stand alone scent...perhaps in a perfume oil?

Boogie, have you tried my Pharaoh oil? It is E Musk with a touch of frankincense and honey but it is heavy on the E musk so I think you would really like it!

oh yes! shower gels would be awesome. i know i would use those everyday!

as for new scents, i'd love to see if jack and the devil and sage's athaneum could have leather notes added to them. not to replace those scents, because i love them as they are, but the variations could be renamed. also if russian caravan could have vanilla absolute added. again, i love that blend and i don't want it reformulated. i'd just want to try a variation like when you added patchouli to spellbound woods and renamed it spellbound patchouli (or patchouli sweet wood as it's called now.) that was just amazing and it's one of my favorite blends.

I probably have a Pharaoh sample somewhere in this disorganized stash of mine, but I'll pick up another one with my next order. farao Thanks for the suggestion !

Angela, I love the idea of all the potential products you mentioned--no surprise there. In particular, the facial steam herbs. I hope one day they will materialize. I would love to see the fruit and cream masque added, because your masques have saved my skin--no joke! = )

PostSubject: Something Lemony   Thu Oct 06, 2011 3:23 pm

Fragrances dealing with something "fruity" always seem to be the ones I grab in the shower. That is why when SS came out with a Scrub called "Fruit Cellar," I was excited. Not only for the simple reason, that it is indeed "fruity" but SS has so few scrubs in its repertoire.

It is my wish that SS develop something lemony in Burnishing Glace, a Scrub, and a Ganache.

But, lemon is very tricky! I don't want to smell like Lemon Pledge when I leave the bathroom!

If you ask me what notes to include, I know this sounds crazy about referring to a competitor, but here goes, but hold the paddle... Haus of Gloi "Honeysuckle Lemon Curd." I love it and wish that SS could create a similar fragrance! I think there's some pumpkin pie spice, and of course definitely a tiny bit of honeysuckle, but really don't have a clue on the rest of the mix. I'd be happy with anything Lemony. I'm always happy with Solstice Scents, as a whole anyways. But I thought I'd throw that out there

I do have a strong interest in adding a few salves. One is an aches and pains salve with menthol and arnica and the other is a boo-boo relief (for cuts, scrapes, bruises, etc. but it can also be used for skin nourshment - cracked and dry skin, nourishing foot balm, etc) with comfrey, calendula, carrot seed, etc. These are for your home medicine cabinet.


Angela, these sound wonderful! I really like herbal salves - and have great interest in buying a comfrey based salve from someone that I know makes things in small batches.

The facial oil sounds great to me too.

[quote="Pumpkinhead"]So there are a few scents I'd love to see Angela's take on.

First, an apple scent. Is there a such thing as a sexy apple scent? I don't know. Most apple scents run along the lines of Country Apple from BBW or they are a foodie apple. I'd like an apple scent that was...hm, mysterious somehow. Smoky, woodsy or maybe incense-y. Think the Apple of Discord...the apple that led to the Trojan War.

Now that sounds perfect!

wow.. I'm with the rest, that DOES sound incredible.. especially coming from a a non foody or fruity person... But that apple/wood/incense sounds very intriguing!

After reading about Angela's original idea for Gehenna in the "Ask Angela" thread, I would like to see a perfume that has fig as one of its note--a figgy incense, perhaps! Haha. Very Happy

Yes. I love lemon and I'm all for having a bright, rich lemony scent from Solstice. Or a zesty citrus (lemon, lime, grapefruit - just not too heavy on the orange) blend to wake me up in the mornings.

As for products, I'm quite sure that this will never happen but I'd love to see a deodorant. I don't use commercial deodorants because of the aluminum content and I've had a difficult time replacing them. Most indie unscented deodorants don't work very well for me and the scented ones generally compete too much with my perfume. If I could find a deodorant that went well with the woody types of perfumes I tend to favor (or if it matched them exactly), I'd pretty much have my Holy Grail of body products.

I also use aluminum free deodorant. I have tried some from the health food store but find they really don't work too well. I can't remember the brands but I can post if I do. The only one that has worked great that is aluminum free is Arm & Hammer. I think it's called "Naturals" or "Essentials" or something. There is a scent but I can't smell it just going about my daily life. It just has a fresh scent.

Ooh, thanks for the recommendation, I didn't know that Arm & Hammer made an aluminum free one, I'll have to keep an eye out for it. A fresh scent sounds nice, though I've reached the point where I'll try just about anything.

I know I've used Nature's Gate, Tom's of Maine, Kiss My Face and one of those crystals - they've all had varying degrees of success but I was never 100% happy with them. I've also tried a few from Etsy but none have worked out well for me.

I would love to see a heavy duty, intensive hand/foot cream--ganache dialed up to eleven, if you will. I would also love a ghost glace!

I wouldn't turn down Manor home fragrance, either. bounce

I use an aluminum free deodorant too, one of the last Lush products I faithfully have.. and that is a powder called The Greeench. it works fantastically for me. Be aware though, it's VERY herbally when you first apply it, but I rarely smell it during the day.

Besides, I love herbal scents anyway.

Angela,

Is there anyway we will see in the future an expansion on your sugar scrubs? I have grown to LOVE scrubs and would die to have any of them in your darker scents!

Rob, unfortunately the sugar scrubs will probably always be a very limited thing as they are pretty time consuming for me. One day, when you and J finally move down here to work with us and when we have a large workshop, that may change, but for now, I just can't produce a great deal of them at a time and have to make sure not to spread myself too thin.

Are you thinking of the Turbinado scrubs or the Sugared Amber (I think you have some of those, no?) primarily?

LOL! How about we open a northeast branch of SS in say... Cape Cod? We'll be happy to run that factory!

I understand completely about them being time consuming. I have few in the sugared amber... I don't think I've ever tried the turbinados, but I will watch for them. Very Happy

Thanks for the recommendation Rob! I love herbal scents too, so that's actually a plus. I've never had a good enough excuse to try Lush but now I might have to check them out.
