Dark Woods Collection & Christmas/Fall Items

Last time I stated I would not be able to add any of the Dark Woods collection, but...I received a few convos/emails after getting their samples with their orders if I'd be willing to add a few.

Soooo, I have a very, very limited amount in stock that I will be adding. What will be listed on etsy is the only inventory I have and there won't be anymore. I do have more of the blends ready (just not using them in products) but I am holding off until I can see if I can recreate them. I know what I used in them, just not sure amount the amounts used. Who knows if they will ever be duplicated. 

As far as the Christmas and Fall items go, I am in the process of updating inventory on etsy and adding the Victorian collection.

Hope you have a happy and safe new year!

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. Ours was very nice. I love spending time with my family. But in many ways, I am so glad it's over. It just didn't feel like Christmas this year. Not sure why, it just came and went so quickly for us, not to mention this SoCal weather has been very wonky. We went from fall weather to freezing cold and snow in the local mountains to hot again. Well, almost hot, 79 is pretty warm for December. Our youngest has been begging for snow so she can build a snowman. Although we don't typically get snow in our neck of the woods (it has happened though), we have been hoping it'll get cold again and snow up in the mountains for a visit.

Anyways, a quick update. Turn around time is back at the normal 2-3 business days. The shop and website will remain open, but I will not be processing any orders from December 30th until January 2nd, 2014.
I'll be updating inventory this weekend. Many items are still in stock, but only a few are left, this includes scents from the fall line such as Black Cat and Madame Violca's Midnight Carnival as well as some others. 

All Christmas and Fall items will remain in stock until sold out or the end of January, whichever comes first. Also the Victorian Christmas line will be added this weekend since I never got to and many of you have been asking me if I'll be adding them.

All the other Christmas items I didn't get to add are going up this weekend and you probably have already seen them start to go up. These are currently being added to the etsy shop at this time.

The Valentine stock has already begun to have been added this month and I'll add more as I have new scents to be added, just working on the labels for those.

I wish you all a healthy, happy and prosperous new year!

December Order Update

Well, it has been one crazy holiday season I can honestly say. As of the 18th, ALL orders have been shipped. The others that came in after have also been shipped as of today. I would not have been able to get it all done without the help of my daughter. She stayed by my side for an entire day and helped pack every single remaining order. It was her that added all the lovely samples in all the packages for you, her that lovingly wrapped each and every product. She helped pack well over 50 packages that day. Did I mention she is only 10 years old?

Also, a lot of you may have received or will receive a sample, that was not labeled but attached to a little card, called The Missing Lynx. Believe it or not, this was hand blended by my son. Ther were only 20 made, so only 20 people have received this sample. 

Well, I think I know who will be taking over the business when I retire, lol. Christmas will be good for them this year! lol

In case you are wondering, the description for The Missing Lynx is:

Mandarin zest and kumquats, white peach nectar, butter toffee, a touch of ginger, white musk and a dusting of cinnamon sugar.

I want to take a moment to thank every single one of you for your business this year and most of all, your patience during this crazy time of year. Since the return from our vacation, it has been hectic here and your kindness and patience is what kept me going full force. I cannot thank you all enough, honestly. 

The following scents/items are out of stock or very limited inventory:

Army of the Dead (OOS)
Lebkuchen (Very Limited stock)
Snow White (very limited stock)
Aztec Cocoa Lip Balm (OOS)
Wild Blueberry Lip Balm (VLS)
Zombie Girl (VLS)

Army of the Dead will be restocked as soon as one of the notes is back in stock from my supplier. I have no clue when this is as the supplier has not been answering emails. I may just have to see if I can find a replacement.

I'll be relisting many things on etsy sometime today. I'll also begin to list the Victorian Christmas Collection I didn't get to list before.

Any orders received after today will not be shipped until the 26th. We will be closed on the 31st and 1st. Any orders receieved during that time wil be processed after the 2nd.

Thank you again and have Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

December Updates

Just a few updates. All the orders up until yesterday have either been shipped or will be today and then we will be all caught up. Anything from today on will not be processed until after the New Year.

I have to apologize for not being able to get back to some convos and emails. I just haven't had the time as I've been processing orders, which is no excuse. I've been wanting to make sure I get all the orders out in time for Christmas gifts as many of the orders were intended for such. I have to go through Paypal and/or Direct Checkout and refund some shipping overages tonight as well, so be on the look out for your refund. 

The other thing is USPS has either, not been updating tracking on some packages, or showing as being delivered elsewhere (even when being delivered to the proper location) and... once again, recycling tracking #'s. But customers are letting me know they are arriving safely. I've had a few etailers contact me with the same issues which in some ways is a relief it's not just me, but still stressful for us all.

The Victorian Christmas collection, although I did not get to add it in time, I will still add it this weekend. I felt that processing all the orders and getting them out as quickly as I could to be far more important than adding more items to the shop and site. Also, on etsy what is there is all that is available at the moment. I will replenish inventory on my time off.

One last thing, I have been sending perfume petites of the Dark Woods collection with orders (such as Cimmerian, Abeo, Solitude, Intempesta, etc) in preparation for the re-release. I am saddened, and I cannot stress just how saddened I am, that I will not be adding these, not now, not ever. :-( It seems they have been lost forever. Since I have been working nonstop my husband hired some help for around the house to help me out during this busy time, which I greatly appreciate and love my husband for. But during this, my notes for the Dark Woods collection were somehow tossed to the trash and the trash has already been picked up. We went through everything and they are not anywhere to be found. I'm in complete shock right now.

I just didn't have the time to add them to my books unfortunately. I've been praying it was the only thing tossed and not any of my other notes as well. So what you receive will be it, an extremely rare, limited edition, collection that none of us will be able to have again. I still have the blends I made up here, but I don't think I will be adding them to the line. I'll just hold onto them. I've been racking my brain trying to remember what the blends were, while I know which notes I used, in what amounts I cannot remember. I have so many blends it's impossible for me to memorize any one of them. I don't store my notes, blends or formulas in my computer as a wise and successful business woman once old me many years ago to never do that for fear of being hacked into one's computer and stealing everything.

So here I am, with a heavy heart. I am off for now to finish the last. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.

Custom Listings

A quick note about custom listings. Due to the busy holiday season, I will not be able to create custom listings on etsy at this time. If you are inquiring if a certain scent comes in a particular product that may not be listed, please convo me and I will gladly anser. Usually the answer is yes and you can just place an order for something similar and make a note at checkout for me. 

Thank you for your understanding!

Emails/Convos + TAT, Sale Update & Christmas Line

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Each year, I host Thanksgiving at my house, not only for friends and family, but for those that do not have friends and family to go see or perhaps live too far to go see. This is something I always enjoy, being surrounded by friends and family.

This time of year proves to be a busy one. I am trying to answer all emails and convos as quickly as I can. With Thanksgiving having just passed, this added to the delay. Please bare with me as I get back to you. If it's a couple days, please try again. As they come in they get shoveled down and then I'm trying to go through them and answer them as as quickly as I can. 

As far as TAT (turn around time) goes, I am working on it as quickly as I can. Again, it's the time of year and having just returned from a vacation it is not as quick as I'd like it. So TAT is currently set at 10 business days but can be up to 14 as noted on your receipt after checkout.

I am literally working round the clock to try and keep TAT consistent. Please keep in mind, I work from home in my shop, I have 4 children and I am currently working alone. My previous help went on to finish school and is preparing for graduation. So I have enlisted the help of my husband and kids. So I am doing the best that I can. If it gets to be too much, I will close the shop and site down until I can get caught up, which can be a few days.

Also keep in mind, I am having the last sale of the year (and probably the last for quite awhile since it slows TAT down). Sales tend to slow TAT down. I had extended the sale as I received quite a few inquiries in regards to it. The sale is being extended to Cyber Monday. A=

If you have a problem with your order, please contact me first. Again, if I don't respond within 24 hours (minus weekends and holiday), please try again. 

I am also updating tracking today. If you did not get your tracking info, please convo/email. 

I will also be, finally...adding the Victorian Christmas line tonight. 

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding!

Friday, November 22, 2013


I'm pretty sure I am caught up on convos and emails. But if for some reason, I missed you, please contact me again. 

I am currently working on orders and we are aiming for all to be shipped by Monday instead of Tuesday. (this applies to all orders palced by Thursday November 21st). 

We are striving to have all orders from the sale placed by Wednesday, but....depending upon the volume some may not make it until Friday. We are working on keeping TAT (turn around time) at 3-5 days.

Thank you for your patience!

Black Friday Sale & Current Updates

First off, my apologies for my sporadic-ness. I have been ill since returning and just when I begin feel better, I'm in bed sick again. But I am finally beginning to feel much better, even energy wise so I am back at work. I am working on getting back to some convos & emails, sending tracking and finishing up all orders. I should be 100% caught up by Tuesday. Yay! 

I will be offering 1 last sale of the year this Friday, a pre-Black Friday Sale. 

Sale will start this Friday and end on Sunday, November 24th, 2013.

20% off all orders of $50.00 or more. Use code: BLACKFRIDAY2013 for discount. Sale not valid on sample sizes. The sample sizes will be removed from the shop and site for this sale. Samples will return on Monday. Sale will begin early Friday morning.

I am currently working on adding tracking for orders recently placed (and those from before/during the vacation). I am also working on adding the Christmas lines. I began to add some when I started feeling ill. But will finish those up asap. For a limited time, I am also adding items from earlier in the year such as a few from the Valentines set such as 2 Lovers, Bound by Blood and Death by Chocolate. 

The Twisted Fairytale collection will be available until our holiday closure, which is December 16th. This applies to all the Fall and Christmas items as well. Dark Woods will be making a return in January and the Valentine collections from past and new will be coming in January. 

Debaucherous Alchemy is opening up Friday. Debaucherous Tarts will be up by Friday. Just working on some last minute touches since being ill. You don't realize how much or how many rely on you until you are out and cannot do any of it. Not sure what it was though as I was or have been the only one with it. I am thankful it has not affected the remainder 5 of the house.

My kids are officially on fall break, so I have some enlisted help. And the good thing from that is that my son, who loves working with me, will be adding a special perfume petite he hand blended himself in each order. I, or should I say, he, would love your feedback on it. 

As always, I truly thank you for your patience.

Have a fabulous evening!

Christmas line update

My apologies for not getting the Christmas lines up this weekend and for not being able to get to all convos/emails. I have come down with something terrible and spent the last few days in bed unable to move pretty much. Not sure what came over me but I am just barely starting to feel better. So I will begin to get back to convos/emails this evening and add the new lines tonight.

Thank you for your continued patience!

Finally home!!

I am back from my vacation! It was quite interesting to say the least, in all aspects. We were delayed to return due to extreme bad weather. That itself was not fun and I missed my kids dearly. Either way, we are home and that is all that matters now.

We returned late last night. So I will be reopening the shop by later today and get to answering the convos and emails that came in. I am extremely exhausted, so please forgive me if it's not until tonight that I get to the convos and emails. But I will get to everything asap. 

Once the shop reopens, I will begin to add the German Christmas line. This week will be an exciting one as The Victorian Christmas line will be coming as well as Debaucherous Alchemy and Debaucherous Tarts. 

I am currently working on one last Christmas line, it's different and fun and was something I was going to bring out in the past but will be coming out this year. Some of the new scents that will be coming are: 

Drunken Elves
Ho, Ho, Ho
The Naughty List
Mommy Kissing Santa

And more. :-)

Current turn around time will be 2-3 business days. Please note, that this can change at any time due to the busy holiday season.

That is pretty much it. I hope everyone has a fabulous day!

Etsy Banner Designer

I thought I'd ask here. I am looking for a designer that is willing to design a custom etsy banner and avatar. I need it for Christmas and I need it to go with the theme of my products. Please contact me either via etsy or email at debaucherousbath at gmail dot com. Payment or trade will work either way for me. Thanks!!!

Quick Update

The remainder of the Halloween items are going up by tonight. Although yesterday was going to be the last day I was open before vacation, due to the fact that I just got the last of my labels in and Halloween is in 4 days, I thought I'd keep the shop open for another day or two.

Also, all orders received by today, October 27th, will be out by tomorrow. I am just about caught up and have been working all weekend. 

Thank you for your continued patience!

Thursday, October 24, 2013

Weekend Update

Just a few updates.

This Saturday, October 26th, is the last day I will be taking orders from both the etsy shop and website. After that date, the shop and website will be closed. Orders will still be able to come through on the website, but as previously noted, there will be a notice on the site, email and at checkout that we are closed and that any orders received during that time will be processed upon our return on Tuesday November 12th. Current turn around time is 3 days. All orders received up until the 26th will be shipped out by November 1st.

The weather is beginning to cool down here...finally and when I return on the 12th, the weather will be even cooler, yay! That means, the return of Bathory! Bathory will be offered in more scents this year than years prior. If you have a special request for Bathory scents, drop me a line, I'm always open to suggestions.

This week I will be adding the last of the Fall/Halloween scents. It's taken a bit longer than I'd  have liked but, better late than never. They will be available until late November as well. 

On the 12th, the German Christmas line will be making its return as well as the Christmas classics. A new Christmas line will be making its debut later in the month as well; a Victorian Christmas as well as a few new classics.

Another anticipated arrival on the 12th, Debaucherous Tarts and Debaucherous Alchemy will open on etsy. The tarts will be available until Christmas. I don't plan to make it a year round thing, but mainly around the holidays. The tarts may come back for Valentines Day with Valentine scents. And then probably not again until next Fall. The tarts will be available while supplies last only. 

The new perfumes coming to Debaucherous Alchemy will not available in any other product. Perfume petites will be available in most scents. Prices will vary as I use CO2's, essential oils, absolutes and resins as well as fragrance oils. So prices will depend on the ingredients used. There will be 2 types of perfume petites offered. The regular ones that are filled full in the sample vials as the others I typically make and then a premium one that will include only about a 1/3 of perfume in the sample vial. The premium ones are for the higher priced perfumes with the costly ingredients. This way you can still sample the perfumes without the high cost.

When I return I will also be offering my perfumes in larger sizes. I'll be offering the perfumes in a 15 ml amber bottle on both etsy shops and the website. Prices will vary.

I'm working on offering a body shea butter as well. Trying to think of a name for it. Made with fair trade, unrefined shea straight from Ghana. This will be offered in limited scents, mainly those that are most compatible with the scent of unrefined shea

That's about it for now. 

Have a fabulous weekend!

Vacation 1 down!

I am back from my vacation, the first one anyways. I'll be reopening the etsy shop later today, a day earlier than scheduled. I've gotten quite a few convos while gone wanting to get orders in before my next trip so that they can get them in time for the holidays. Once I reopen the shop TAT will be 2-3 days, depending on the volume of orders that come in it may take 5. I will be closing the shop a bit earlier than planned and that will be on Saturday, October 26th. With the recent vacation I learned I need a little bit more time to allow for the orders to arrive. I had a few convos concerned their packages were lost. While 2 of them arrived eventually, one did not. Not too bad for the volume of orders before the vacation closure, but still, 1 too many. On this last vacation, I had very sporadic service as I was up in the mountains in New England. I didn't realize I'd have that issue. But either way, the time I am allowing this time will be much better. Since I am going to Europe, I will *NOT* have any access to email or web while gone. 

I'll be restocking the shop and finally adding the last of the Halloween scents. 

I can't thank everyone enough for their continued business and patience while I am getting back into the swing of things around here.

Have a fabulous Sunday!

Vacation & Recent Sale

In regards to the recent sale I just offered, I think there was some confusion about it. The sale did NOT apply to sample sizes. These items are already discounted and never do I at any time, offer a sale that applies to samples. As I stated previously, the sale did not apply to the sample sizes, only full sized products. Any orders that used the coupon code on samples will not be shipped until the difference is paid via Paypal.

For future reference, sample sized items will not be available while I am having a sale. 

Now for the vacation time, I am closing up shop tomorrow evening instead of Wednesday so that I can finish all orders before I leave. I had a rush of orders come through this weekend on both the site and etsy and so for this, I need to close early. The website will remain open, but there will be a notice stating we are closed until the 21st and any orders that come through will not be processed until my return. A notice will be included in your receipt that is emailed to you as well as when you go to checkout. The etsy shop will be closed until the 21st so that no orders can come through.

I just want to say, that I cannot thank you all enough for your patience and your continued business. 

Have a fabulous evening!

Stock Up or Wait Sale!

So, as I mentioned before, I was going to offer yet another sale. Now, I don't usually offer sales like this, or this often actually, but since I am going on vacation in both October (beginning the 9th returning the 21st) and November (beginning the 1st and returning the 12th)  I thought I'd offer this as a Stock Up Or Wait type of sale. 

Here's how it works, you can order now to stock up and save 10% off any order of $35 or more, NOT including sample sizes. OR, you can wait and get 15% off any order of $40 or more once I return from the first vacation. These sales will be offered for a very limited time so that I can process all orders in a timely manner. I don't want to get up to 10 days again. These sales will NOT be valid on orders of sample sized products. NO exceptions.

For the "Stock Up" sale, it will be on in stock items only. I will not be restocking inventory during this time nor will I be doing custom listings. Time is very restrictive for me during this time so I need to make it move as smooth and quickly as possible.

For the "Wait" sale, I will be limiting the amount of custom listings and will be restocking, but again in limited quantities due to the fact that I will be leaving again in November.

I am offering this sale bc honestly, I couldn't be leaving at a worse time. So it is up to you on if you are willing to wait until I return or want to stock up now. While I am away on the first trip I will have limited access to email/convos. On the 2nd trip I will not have any access at all as I am leaving the country.

The sale will be offered on the etsy shop ONLY. Please understand all of the above when placing your order. Also note, there will be a note at the bottom of each receipt stating the above info as a reminder.

The sale begins now (Sunday the 29th) and will end Saturday (October 5th) at 12am.

Here are the codes:

STOCKUPNOW10 for 10% off orders of $35 or more that will be processed and shipped BEFORE the vacation


ICANWAIT15 for 15% off orders of $40 or more that will be processed when I RETURN on October 12th.

If you place an order and mix match the codes for the dates listed, you order will be processed according to the sale and dates offered. No exceptions.

The sale does not apply to the tart or perfume shops nor the website. Not valid with any other offer. Not valid on samples or perfume petites.

Not valid on previous orders.

Have a fabulous week!

Happy Fall!

Finally, the day I have been waiting all year for is here! This is my favorite time of year. Not only favorite, I was born in it and in exactly one month will be my birthday!! My parents couldn't have planned it any better. 

Happy Fall to everyone! If the weather has cooled down in your neck of the woods I hope you're cuddling up in a nice warm blanket, with a cup of hot tea or coffee, warm socks and staying in your pj's this lovely morning by the fireplace. Maybe even the trees are just beginning to showcase their autumn splendor. 

Happy Fall!

Tarts & Perfumes

A quick update. I have opened a separate etsy shop just for the tarts, called Debaucherous Tarts. I will begin to list the soy wax tarts by Sunday evening. The shop isn't ready as I am trying to get the last of all the orders out. I figured it would be wiser to keep the 2 separate.

Which leads me to another update, perfumes. I have once again, opened one more etsy shop just for perfumes (also not ready).  These will be perfumes not available at my regular etsy shop. All Limited Editions. This shop is called Debaucherous Alchemy, keeping with the same name line. This shop isn't ready yet either and won't be until Sunday evening.

At the same time, I will FINALLY be adding the remainder of the first fall release line Sunday as well.

This will be the first day (Sunday) in quite awhile that I will be 100% up to date and finally be able to update everything. I am so excited! 

Halloween items will trickle in as I get my labels in from my designer. I'm not setting any dates for this release and will just add as she send them over.

Also, with my vacations quickly approaching, I will be offering a sale. This will allow you to stock up, but only in stock items will be listed to keep TAT as quick as humanly possible. At that time I will also be adding a few Christmas items. Details to come....

Thank you all for your patience. Have a fabulous day!

Shipping Error

Last week, while I was preparing shipments, somehow, I printed duplicate shipping labels, meaning there are about 8 orders that I entered in a tracking number that I had to void because I printed 2 labels for each (with separate tracking #'s). I have no clue what I was thinking, but rest assured all packages have been shipped. Tonight I'll be in the process of updating the correct tracking #'s. 

My sincerest apologies.

Sunday, September 8, 2013

A few updates

As you may have noticed, many of the new fall scents are up. The remainder will be up by Tuesday. Halloween scents will be making their debut towards the 3rd week of September. Old fall favorites have returned as well. You may have also noticed some of the oldie but goodie products are listed with our old business name labels, Haus of Haunt. Unfortunately, the other night as I was taking photos, I dropped my beloved Canon 60D. While the camera survived just fine, my lens did not. My precious macro lens broke into pieces and my heart just sank. I shed a few tears, picked it up and showed my husband what happened. It is beyond repair and now I have to purchase another. My favorite camera store is nearly 45 minutes away and I have yet the time to go. But lucky me, my beloved husband has gone on his merry way to rescue the day! So those photos will be updated shortly. Yay!

Now, for the turn around time. The holiday season has officially begun, at least it seems so. More orders are coming in from both sites and so TAT has slowed down just a tad. Everything is taking 5-7 business days. I am trying to convo and email each person that places an order with an estimated ship date as orders come in. If you did not get an email or convo with your TAT, please contact me. Sometimes I am not online until the end of the day so that I can just process orders. So if you convo me or email me, please give me 24-48 hours to respond. 99.999% of the time I respond the same day. 

I also have another etsy shop/website as mentioned before, where I bake gluten free, paleo and primal baked goods. Usually my Sundays as well as Monday mornings involve baking. Business for this is beginning to pick up as well, thus another reason for my 5-7 turn around time. If you should ever need an order rushed, please contact me, there is a small fee for rushed orders, but we can do it. :-)

Vacation/Holiday schedule. Please take note of the recently posted Vacation/Holiday schedule. I know it is the worst time of year to take a vacation, November is anyhow, but I had no choice. I know, pull my arm right? Well, yes actually. Earlier this year my husband and I boarded a plane for Europe for a lovely vacation, nearly half ways to the next airport for a change of planes, I fell very ill and once we landed was spending a lovely night in the ER. Long story short, trip canceled and the ONLY time the airlines (don't you just love the airlines?) would give us a new flight schedule was for November. Otherwise, we had to wait until Spring of next year and my beloved husband could wait no longer, poor guy. Just lovely!! I was so upset that we had to go during the busiest time of year. So please, please bare with me as I will be working in overdrive during this time. I have enlisted the help of my family, as usual so we will move as quickly as we can! :-) Usually, worst case scenario for turn around time is posted and we can get orders out quicker than estimated. 

Also, in October I have to take another trip. This one is back east and consists of both pleasure and business for my husbands work. Again, we will be working in overdrive to get all orders out as quickly as possible for you. Especially with the holiday season coming.

Now, for the much anticipated soy wax tarts! These will be offered for a VERY limited time and in limited scents. Some scents offered will be some of the holiday scents I offer, plus a few others that will NOT be available in any other product but soy wax tarts. These will be launched by the end of the month. Everything will be a first come, first serve basis. All tarts will be made in advance and sold by limited inventory. Once gone, they will not be making any return and inventory will not be replenished.

New perfumes are coming in the next week as well. These too will be first come first serve as inventory will be limited. These scents will not be offered in perfume petite sizes.

Bathory will be making a return as soon as the weather cools down. It seems as though Fall will never come in my neck of the woods with this dreaded heat wave. Hopefully sometime in October, otherwise they will have to wait until November. These are very delicate in-the-shower body butters which can melt easily. I will announce when they are available.

Other than all that...I hope everyone has a fabulous day!

Etsy reviews/Feedback

REVIEWS/FEEDBACK: Etsy has recently replaced its existing Feedback system with a ‘Review’ option based on a star rating. Buyers have a certain timeframe in which they are able to leave a review, and in conjunction with this function the Etsy system will send out “reminders” if a review has not been left. Debaucherous Bath considers reminders of this nature to be intrusive and would like to assure all buyers that any “review reminder” emails or messages that they may receive are from Etsy and DO NOT originate from Debaucherous Bath. We do not like to be pestered just as much as you don't. However, please accept our sincere thanks for any positive reviews that you may choose to submit; we are sorry that Etsy no longer affords sellers the opportunity to do so via the feedback system.

Tat, New Product

All orders will be shipped out by tomorrow. We are nearly caught up. This is great news as I do not like to add new products to the shop and website unless I am caught up. But I will finally start adding the new fall line up today.

I have some other wonderful news. In the past I've had quite a few inquiries for wax tarts. Typically I do not do this as the cost of my blends are not exactly cheap for one and two, I don't like to get overwhelmed with too much product and then have orders slow down. Sooooooo...with that in mind, for a VERY limited time, we will be offering soy wax tarts in a few select scents. Scents like Chocolade, Hedonistic and the higher priced fragrances will not be available in soy wax tarts. The scents that will be available will be from our holiday line and sold as combo packs. 

These will not be available until after September 1st.

Have a fabulous day!

Product Launch

A slight delay in launching the new fall line, I've had a killer migraine for a few days and turns out it's a sinus infection due to my allergies. It slowed me down unfortunately, I feel like the life was sucked out of me, but I am starting to feel better with some good meds. So you will see the new Fall line in the next couple days.

I apologize for the delay, I've been getting quite a few convos and emails asking when they were going to be added and I just feel so bad delaying it, but when you get a migraine it really takes you out. I typically get them due to a gluten and yeast intolerance but this one felt "different" than my usual ones. 

So I am off to work! Have a fabulous weekend!

Fall 2013 Debut Update & More

A quick update on a few things.

1. Fall debut, I have about half of the labels for the already-waiting products and am working on the photos right now so that I can upload the "ready" ones by tonight. My designer was recently ill, but they are coming in. But as soon as they are ready I will add the products as they come in. I have tons of product just waiting for labels so they can go to their new homes! Lip balms will be coming tonight as well.

2. Shipping, I had to make a few unfortunate changes to shipping. For one, effective immediately, the perfume petites on both etsy and the website, will no longer include free shipping. Due to rising costs it just isn't working out this way anymore. Also, even though I had lowered shipping on the etsy shop, I was still losing on shipping. So I increased the additional item charge slightly to help cover shipping costs. I will always try my best to provide you with the cheapest shipping rates whenever possible and as always, I will refund any additional over charges.

3. Past Fall/Halloween, these products are already up. 

4. Fall debut cold process soaps, these are still curing and won't be ready until another week or so. Once they are ready, I will add them to both sites. 

5. Summer collections, by the end of this month I will be phasing out the summer collections. So get them while you can. They will not be back.

6. TAT, we are currently at a 3-5 business day TAT. My kids went back to school and my youngest just started preschool, which absolutely breaks my heart. My hired help, has the same thing going on so we are now back to carting children back and forth to school at different times making us both crazy with the driving madness, but it is our lives and we love it! The days when my husband, the love of my life, comes home early, are blessed days for me as he enlists his help.

7. Sales, as of late and more frequently then ever, I have been receiving numerous convos and emails asking for coupon codes, discounts or free products for blog reviews. While I appreciate the interest, at this time, there are no sales and I am not offering any free product for blog reviews, but, if you would like to review a product, please feel free to purchase any of my items, I even offer sample sizes. Also, I always include a free perfume petite from our regular priced lines with any order and if you have a specific request, I'd be more than happy to oblige. From time to time I may offer a sale, but there are no sales currently. We are approaching the busy holiday season and may offer a sale from time to time. So check back often. :-)

8. Gift sets, we will be offering gift sets this year. As well as a new body oil, new body butter and Bathory will be making a return, all when the weather cools down.

9. 2nd Fall Debut, the 2nd Fall debut will be happening rather quickly after the first one. This will include new Halloween scents. I anticipate a release around the 1st of September.

That p-retty much sums it up. Now back to work!

Have a fabulous evening!

Sale TAT

I want to take a moment to address TAT. With the recent big sale we just had, we are looking at 5-7 business days. Please note, this does NOT include weekends and holidays.

We are working as quickly as we can. If you are inquiring about your order, please feel free to email me or convo. I will return your convo/email within 48 business hours. 

We are looking to be up to date on orders by this Friday. Perfect timing for our upcoming Fall release next week.

There are 2 of us here processing orders and my kids go back to school tomorrow (I have 4 of them). So this week may prove to be a tad challenging until I get back into the swing of things. Please be patient with me ;-). Thank you!
