PostSubject: RESTOCK INFO & AN UPDATE 10/17   Mon Oct 17, 2011 8:36 pm

I just relisted Blueberry Muffin Batter, Blackburn Farmstead, Manor and Witch's Cottage Burnishing Glaces and Botanical Toner for Dry/Normal/Mature skin. I have a limited quantity of each of the Glaces because I ran out of cyclomethicone so that's it for a while on Witch's Cottage and Manor (I will try to make more of both if I can but no 100% guarantees). I have no plans to make more glace in Blueberry Muffin Batter and Blackburn Farmstead anytime soon, if at all, until maybe next year (if I decide to make either again). I have a half-way decent amount of the perfumes from the Gourmand release still available but this was a limited release because I need to focus all of my time into Winter Collection production. The Winter Collection is going to be pretty big and it's an ambitious undertaking for me in the time frame I'm shooting for so all the Gourmand goodies were meant to be a treat but limited.

I am no longer actively making anything for the Autumn Collection or Gourmand Collection. What's available now is what I have so if there is anything you've been holding out on or are interested in giving for holiday presents, you may want to pick it up now. However, I will try my best to keep as many of the fall scents in perfume format available for as long as my supplies allow. I'd like to have them available to overlap the Winter Collection for gifts. The other products are no longer being made (salts, ganache, etc.). The only exception is that I will be making one more batch of the Crumbling Crypt bath salts. Manor is going General Catalog as a perfume oil and will be occasionally available in Glace and Ganche as part of our rotating General catalog bath and body items. It will take a backseat in the latter two products to Winter Collection production though so again, I will not be actively and constantly restocking it.

My projected date/goal for the Winter Collection is going to be the second week of November. That is a little later than I really wanted to do but I'm going to need as much time as possible. Since we ship super fast, you know you'll have your orders in plenty of time for holiday gift giving! I perceive most if not all orders shipping within 72 hours (business days - if we list on a Friday, they will start shipping Monday though packages may begin being put together on either Sat or Sun or both). Once I do the Winter Release and it has shipped, I will resume production on General Catalog items as well as begin crafting and packaging restock items for anything that is low or has sold out for the Winter Collection. Between now and then, I will not be completely NOT stocking General Catalog items but it will be limited as far as what I can produce. I will be making the Exquisite Face Masque to restock soon.

If you have any questions, please post them here! For those of you who are not members of this forum, I will be offering a sneak peak on Winter Collection items here in the Members Only forum as we get closer to the release/finalized scents so you may wish to join! Very Happy

I'm hoping for some dark, incensy, woodsy goodness with the winter collection! Smile

I am pretty sure something will befall those who do not wish for foodie scents-YES to the Gingerbread and YES to RC and M!! Bring on the foodie scents. I also , though, would LOVE woodsy incensy scents too. Love the incense stuff. Can't wait for the release. Very Happy

Deb, that's one I've had for a while now and really do love it for cooler/winter/holiday months! It's really a great one for non foodies to try... A perfect combination of foody/darker scents that Angela is soooooo good at!

Rob, what is the main note that is in both Jack and tthe Devil and Gingerdead man? I can't place it, but I really want to know what it is. (It doesn't work for me, so avoiding it is easier.)

When I smelled Jack and the Devil for the first time, I smelled banana bread. I know it's suppossed to be pumpkin, but I definitely smell banana bread. But that top note fades very quickly and then smells more like pumpkin and tobacco. I love it, but it also has patchouli, which not everyone likes. I'm guessing Gingerdead Man has that patchouli note too.

Alicious--I think it could be oakmoss. Not positive, though,

I know Gingerdead Man has vetivier in it, which I love. I think also some musk.

I wonder if there will be any winter scents in the home fragrance oils? My all time favorite holiday home scents are Crabtree and Evelyn's Noel and Bath and Body Works Perfect Winter. Those have that combination of pine, cranberry, orange, spices, and snowy woods that I utterly adore...anything like those, lol! Laughing

Thanks! There is something in the initial whiff of those two scents that is very similar to me (not so much in the drydown), and it's the initial scent that I'm trying to figure out. I'm leaning towards the vetiver.

I checked the ingrediants and patchouli is in both, so Liber vix was correct!

Hmmm. It's definitely not patchouli that I'm speaking of, so it must not be a single note so much as the way the notes play together. I really appreciate all of you trying to help my figure it out, though! cheers

I LOVE nutmeg, but would love it mixed with other dark, incensey notes, musk, patchouli, or woods. I'm not a big fan of icy, minty, or too-foody scents.

Patchouli is the only thing that Gingerdead and Jack have in common. I think I have all the notes listed in the SS Scent Reviews & Reference forum. Oakmoss is the greenish note that is in Jack and Devil's Tongue.

A-

I played around with these scents last night and sniffed back and forth for a while trying to find the common note or even what the two scents had in common. The only thing I could detect (and I don't have the perfect sniffer for these things) was the spice. I honestly thought it was the ginger, but when I went back to the descriptions later on, I see that only Gingerdead has it. My nose keeps telling me ginger for some reason!

Maybe Angela is right and it's the patchouli?

Never responded to the first page of comments but: there will be something for both the foodie and non-foodie persuasions both new and returning scents for each. Cool
