Amber Rose Petals
Pink Sugar

Conjure
Quiet Night (primarily for aromatherapy and before bed, not a lasting perfume)

Manor


WHIPPED SOAP:

Root Beer Float


GANACHE:

Cenobite
Manor


TONERS:
Troubled/Oily
Normal/Dry/Mature



I am not going to actively be restocking a lot of the summer items. I may try to restock some additional goodies but I am also working on a few other new products that I really wanted to release with the summer collection but fell short of time. My goal is to focus on these few items and get them listed and in between that, continue formulating the fall scents, which I am REALLY excited about. I want to focus as much time as I can on fall because I don't want to have to release it super late like I did the summer release. I have several things returning from last year and on top of that, I have another small collection for fall that I have been wanting to do since last year and have been ordering and testing notes from all over to make this vision come to life. Since there will probably be about 5 new scents for this theme, I need a lot of time to blend, test, blend some more, test, then order supplies and ultimately craft the scent when the supplies arrive. This is the part that takes the longest because of all the tweaking and even if 4 out of 5 scents are done, I have to wait to order supplies for them until I'm happy with scent #5, if that makes sense. I like to order everything in one massive haul. Oh, did I mention that I'm really excited? I hope you guys end up loving this idea! Since it is so expansive on top of all the returns, it may end up being perfume only but I'll have to see what kind of time I have and also the cost may be prohibitive on a few of the blends to do in other products, or they may not work in other products. I will do what I can because I know you like to order the other products in addition to or in lieu of perfume.

Can I beg and plead for more Manor Glace? Very Happy
I'm super excited for the Autumn release. Work your magic, Angela!

YAY! I was excited about the fall collection before, but now knowing that you're planning FIVE new scents — that's really marvelous news. As always, I deeply admire your creativity, methodology, and focus.

I have to admit that in my zeal for the lavender-vanilla combo, I've tried a few products from other shops, and they've all been... eh. Like, yes, that is lavender, and that is vanilla, and they're in the same bottle, but the mix is just not *delicious* the way yours is.

And I've been meaning to say that I find the glace the most diversely useful of your products. I use it in the summer instead of lotion, in the winter I layer it on top of lotion (or ganache), and I use it on my hair too. Love.

Anyway, can't WAIT to sniff what you come up with for fall! Thanks for keeping us posted!

Samengage, that is actually one I intend to make so no begging necessary!

Thanks for your comments Gwen! I appreciate your feedback and I'm so glad that you enjoy the Lavender Vanilla blend we have. I love the glace too. I actually spray it on my clothes in lieu of a spray perfume (which I don't mention since there are oils and I'd hate for someone to ruin a favorite blouse but I've never had any staining or issues doing this). Then the scent lasts all day!

Angela, I know this has been requested before, but I thought I'd throw it out there again. Could we get a glace for Black Forest? Pretty please? I'd be willing to pay a higher price for it, since I know the ingredients in it are pretty costly. (I apologize in advance if you've already explained to us that that isn't a possibility. I'm not able to keep up with these things as well as I used to be...)

Also, I know we've spoken about this before in emails, but if there was some good support shown here for a glace of Lavender Vanilla, would that be something you'd be willing to do? (If so, I'll go petition the other members for their support in another thread.) Like Gwen, I *lovelovelove* your Lavender Vanilla blend. I would really appreciate having it in a spray-on form. I have yet to find a lavender blend that I really enjoy that's available in a spray format, & I know that yours would be wonderful. *picture a begging/pleading emoticon here*

Very interesting that you're requesting a Black Forest Glace tee-hee. Remember those new products I mentioned? *innocent whistling*

As for Lav/Vanilla, yes, I would be willing to do that if people were interested. I already know of several who are, just haven't had a great deal of time. I know some other folks wanting and waiting forever for an unscented glace. So much to do, so little time! All I can say is "one day" on the lav/van and I'm really hearing the requests. I am feeling a time crunch with fall stuff though and a few new things I had intended to release soon so I just don't know how soon.

Eeeeeeeee! Lavender-vanilla glace! *boing boing boing*

Okay, I know, you said 'one day'... but you still said it! The only thing I await with more eagerness is Sherlock Season 3. If you release it the same week, I may be raptured right up to...hmmm, a cloud where Benedict Cumberbatch spritzes me with lavender-vanilla glace. !!!

Today has been cool and gray, and I unearthed my Harvest Moon perfume — technically not in season but I couldn't resist! Now am thoroughly geared up for the fall collection.

Thanks for the reply, Angela. Black Forest glace!!!! *happy dance* I'm glad to hear that you have the Lavender Vanilla glace on your radar, too. I'll see if anyone else wants to express their support in another thread. Very Happy

Edit to add: Here is the link to the "show your support for a LV glace" thread: http://solsticescents.forumotion.com/t474-show-your-support-for-a-lavender-vanilla-glace

I would love Black Forest Glace! I always love to have glaces to match my perfumes. I am wearing Nag Champa today-forgot how much I love this!!!!! Have to order full sizes. Mu tastes have changes-I am loving more deep, incensy scents or foodie scents with more deep tones-like Thornwood Thicket!

I'm hoping for a restock of the botanical toner for oily and troubled complexions!
I have AWFUL skin and am always looking to try new products, and have heard great things about this one! I love you

midstar7, I just restocked it! When I do a restock of the Oatmeal Masque, I highly recommend that one for troubled skin. It is very popular and it's my personal favorite thing that I make. It may be a few weeks before I have more but keep an eye out (the toner sells pretty quick usually so you may not want to wait on purchasing that one but I can hold it for you until the oatmeal masque is back in stock if you leave a note in the comments box at checkout that says "DO NOT SHIP. Waiting to purchase oatmeal masque" - that is, if you wanted to try it and get combined shipping. I'm going to try and have the masque soon but I've got a few irons in the fire so not sure how quick!

I have a bunch of restocks and I'm updating the OP with the list: http://www.solsticescents.com/RECENTLY-ADDED_c_52.html

Manor glace added!

Black Forest is a separate update probably end of the week along with a few other things I'm working on. A newsletter and all social media will be the way I communicate this one.

Actually, I already have the Oatmeal Masque on the way! Razz
I got a while ago but was waiting to combine orders, and now I'm waiting for all my goodies to arrive with me in Japan! - thankfully my friend shipped everything out to me on Saturday so.. ANY DAY NOW! cheers

Comically I JUST made an order last light for Cherry Cordial, Quiet Night and Lavender Vanilla, and now I'm going to have to make another for the toner! *laughs*
At least last night's order is actually on hold for further goodies. It's like I KNEW. Laughing

Edit : Order made! I ordered 2 toners just in case they turn out to be amazing and I'm kicking myself for not getting more! *laughs*

I can't believe the rosemilk day cream is sold out already! How tragic, for those like me who missed out!
How often does it (and other facial care items) get restocked? Is it common for those items to be sold out within 24 hours? I refuse to miss out again!

I know, it's heartbreaking, isn't it? I'm still waiting patiently for a restock on Lace Draped Spectre glace.

No pressure, though, honestly - I'm happy to wait. Meanwhile, that Black Forest glace looks awfully tempting....

kittkatt87 - I'm pretty surprised that it did sell out so quickly as I made a pretty decent size batch.! The toners are usually the thing that sell out quickly. I restock all items in the shop as often as I can but there are frequent gaps, especially when I am crafting a seasonal collection (like the massive fall one I am working on now). I'm sorry it went out of stock but I hope you're able to get it next time around. The best way to know if it is back is by signing up for the newsletter or keeping an eye on one of our social media sites.

olfactorybulb, I hear ya. I think that was one restocked not long ago that may have sold out. I'll keep that one in mind and will make as supplies allow.

s.supreme, that is one of the only summer things I'm planning on restocking. I am waiting on one of the oils to arrive from India before I can make more. It should be to me by the weekend so stay tuned. I'll restock as soon as I'm able.

As a general update - most everything else in the shop will be on hold and not restocked quickly as I have to focus all the time I have on the fall collection. I hope everyone understands. It is a pretty ambitious collection so I really need time to formulate it. So, the rest of the summer items are all that I have aside from a few possible perfume restocks where supply may still be available.

Thank you for restocking Lace Draped Spectre glace! I threw aside everything I was working on when I saw the FB post and ordered a bottle immediately.
Looking forward to the Fall collection Smile
