Please read! TAT notes: Turn around times will be on the long side of 2-3 weeks. I am always trying to get things done faster, but I can't seem to improve on my TAT. I stress about it all the time! I think the universe is telling me it's time to finally hire someone... Until then, please expect about a 3 week turnaround on most orders.
::: SCENT DESCRIPTIONS :::
A 90's Christmas : T'was a simpler time, before online shopping existed, and everyone did their Christmas shopping, Hanukkah shopping, and any other kind of shopping, at the mall. This scent takes me back to the mid-90's... Peach spiced tea wafting over from Gloria Jean's (or maybe someone is testing some Peach Nectar body splash over at Bath & Body Works) and extra cinnamon floating over from Cinnabon.
Apple Cider Ice Cream : A dreamy autumn scent. Spiced red apple cider swirled into creamy vanilla ice cream.
Autumn Dreamsicle : Sweet orange, vanilla ice cream, and crisp fall leaves.
Blueberry Oatmeal : A comfy-cozy scent for cold winter days. Toasty oats, fresh blueberries, and cream.
Candlelight : I have been experimenting with amber scents for a long time, and this is the one I liked best. A glowing amber, candle wax, bourbon vanilla, sandalwood, and a drop of patchouli.
Cardamom Black Tea & Cream : My cardamom obsession continues! This is a deep, spicy tea scent with cream and a drop of honey.
Ginger Pear : Sweet pears and ginger, like a glass of fizzy pear ginger ale.
Jemez : Piñon needles, lichen-covered cedar trees, black earth, and ponderosa pines with their unique vanilla scented bark. For a long time I have wanted to capture the scent of hiking in the New Mexico mountains when, above a certain elevation, the desert turns to rocky, lush, ponderosa pine forest. The Jemez is a range of (volcanic!) mountains to the Northwest of Santa Fe.
Luminaria : In Santa Fe our traditional holiday decorations are the luminaria, or farolitos, glowing candles in paper bags. A papery scent with melting candle wax, smoke, myrrh, and frankincense wafting over from a nearby church. Simple and lovely.
Milky Chai : I was at an outdoor party this summer and right at sunset they started brewing a huge pot of chai tea with rice milk. Everyone was irresistibly drawn to it, and I thought, "Is there really anything that smells better than chai?" So of course I had to make and extra-spicy, extra-milky chai scent for my Fall collection. Scent notes are black tea, ginger, cardamom, allspice, cinnamon, clove, rice milk, and vanilla.
Pumpkin Patch : For patchouli lovers only... My usual pumpkin pie scent spiked with two-year-aged golden patchouli.
Pumpkin Pie : Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, with notes of vanilla whipped cream and pie crust, like a sweet slice of pumpkin pie. Yes!
Rosewood : This scent is loosely based on Shiseido's long-discontinued perfume, Feminite du Bois, which was my signature scent back in the '90's. A strong, sensual blend of cedar, rose, sandalwood, neroli, vanilla, musk, ylang ylang, and peach.
Snow Cherries from France : Snow Cherries from France ~ Ripe red cherries, snow taffy, sweet almond, white chocolate, and a drop of Bordeaux.
Snowy Ice Cream : A softly wintery holiday scent with marshmallow, white chocolate, vanilla and a hint of peppermint.
Snowdrop : A pretty, floral alternative to all the gourmand scents of the season. Snowdrop is a slightly sweet, clean scent with white flowers, water, ozone, mint, and fresh snow.
Spicy Sandalwood : Sandalwood (my single favorite scent), Virginian cedar, cardamom, allspice, and bourbon vanilla musk. A cozy unisex fall scent.
Sugar Cookie : A new version of a popular scent from years back. No lemon, no spices, just warm, buttery, fresh-baked sugar cookies!
Toasty Marshmallow : Gooey marshmallows toasting over a cedar wood campfire with a swirl of nag champa incense.
Zarzamora : Rich blackberries, woodsmoke and a few drops of black pepper essential oil. Zarzamora is the Spanish word for blackberry -- such a great word!
