A Few Updates

Just a few updates here.

All orders have been shipped. Current TAT is within 1 business day at the moment.

All shipping deadlines have passed but we will continue to ship orders daily up until December 19th. We will process all orders as quickly as possible, but cannot guarantee orders will arrive in time for Christmas. At this point, delivery of packages depends on usps.

We will be taking a break beginning December 20 and will not be processing orders until we return on January 5th, 2015. The shop and website will remain open during this time and will reflect a 2 week TAT. I will be available via convo and email until the 23rd.

Holiday scents:

Many are out of stock or low on stock, but will remain listed until inventory is depleted. This includes the fall items as well. Some items I did not get to add to the shop and website, but I will be doing that this week. This includes perfumes, lotions and a few other holiday items.

Also, I found a few perfumes in The Pumpkin Head Girls scent. I was so excited as a few had been asking for it. Unfortunately, I do not have it available in any other product.

I have received quite a few emails and convos inquiring about my grandma. I thought I'd post an update here for everyone. She is doing really well. She has begun chemo but on a smaller level, so to speak. The dr wants to make sure there is no chance of it ever returning. She is in great spirits and can't wait for the family to come see her for Christmas.  My grandma and I would like to thank everyone for the well wishes and prayers, they mean a lot to us.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a healthy, happy and prosperous new year!

Thank you!

A HUGE thank you to everyone that has been so kind and patient throughout this very busy time of year.

A lot has been going on behind Debaucherous Bath. As mentioned before, my computer crashed and all but labels for whipped soaps, bubbling scrubs and lotions were lost. I've spent countless hours trying to recreate them. The images I used were lost as well, so I spent way too much time trying to figure things out. You may notice that the labels for lip balms, perfumes and perfume petites are different. You may even see a few variations, I am trying to figure out what I like and do not like. Honestly, I hate it. This is the worst time of year to have to deal  with this.

Also, another family member has been battling cancer, once again. This time breast cancer and it is my grandma, to whom I love so much and has always been my 2nd mom. She recently had surgery to remove the cancer and a lymph node, and will begin chemo next week. The dr is confident all has been removed and has joked she will live to be 100, to which she jokingly said she will hold to him, she is currently 81. I have shared this with just a few and I am thankful for the prayers and support offered.

Also, I am deeply indebted to Lori who has volunteered her time, no less, to helping me in any way she possibly can. At first it was with convos and emails, but she saw me working until the wee hours of the night, every night and offered to help me process the orders, I took her up on her offer and off we rode. We are now back at a 3-5 business day TAT.

At the same time, our customer service lagged majorly because of just concentrating on packaging and shipping the orders and we are so sorry for that. I am currently working through many emails and convos as we speak.

RE USPS: As always, I've been having issues with them and still do. I have packages showing as delivered right at our local po, to having them not being scanned until they are at the buyers sorting facility. I admit, my business skills are not 100% but I do try to be near that. I just cannot change shipping couriers, FedEx and UPS are just too expensive for the size orders that come in. Sample orders are usually under 3oz, how can one justify charging at least $6 for a couple samples shipping via FedEx or UPS? So I am still dealing with usps. They recently changed locations and I am hoping things get better. I have complained with the postmaster and have yet to hear anything. I have been told by the employees themselves to either take the packages to another station or that the post master is inadequate. What do you do when these are being told to you by the actual employees? It is beyond frustrating.

Which leads me to this, in a week or 2, after all orders are shipped and I make sure thay are delivered, I will be putting the shop on vacation mode as well as the website. I'm not sure how long I'll take off, but I'd like to take the time spending it with my family and visiting with my grandma on top of that. It is Christmas time and I have yet to even shop for gifts. Saying I am exhausted is an understatement. My little girls birthday is next month too and I'd like to concentrate on her special day. So most likely after her birthday, I will return.

I will be updating the shops inventory and many things will be coming down, mainly holiday scents and a few others that will be discontinued, such as Stanko. Some items move too slow and I need to narrow it down to keep things moving smoothly.

I will update later in the week whih scents I plan to discontinue.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Quick Update

DB here,

I will be taking the next few days off to catch up on some much needed rest. I am literally running on fumes over here, lol. I have made some great progress on orders and am excited that we are nearly caught up finally! I will continue to process orders, but until this weekend, I'll just have to take it easy. My back is bothering me a bit from standing and working so much and I forget that I am still in recovery mode from this past summers surgery (I was told a year and it's been 5 months and so far so good). I think a visit with my acupuncturist and a long overdue massage are in order.

Lori will be available via convo or email. The shop and websites will remain open.

Thank you so much for your continued patience!

Good Morning!

Good morning!

My name is Lori, many of you I have had the pleasure to converse with while others I am still catching up on.

I have been helping DB with convos at etsy, emails and shipping labels and tracking. Pretty much anything that involves sitting in front of the computer while she is off producing and packing everyones orders.

I am fairly new to this but DB has been very kind to show me the ropes. 

In the past month DB's computer crashed and she lost all her labels. She has been working on getting that done on a brand new computer so you may notice that some of the lip balm, handmade soaps, perfumes and perfume petite sample labels look a little different. She completely lost all of those so she had to redesign them sadly. That took quite a bit of time for her. Luckily all lotion, whipped soap and scrub labels were designed by her designer and she was able to retrieve those as those were backed up. Its just been one thing after another, but DB is a real trooper and keeps going strong. I'm quite amazed at how she continues like she does with 4 kids.

Also, a lot of the Christmas items have been added. The 2nd collection will be up on November 19th, so stay tuned for that. During that time the website will be updated with all new stock as well.

And....I shouldn't really tell, but I know that DB has something special planned for Thanksgiving weekend. So exciting!

Time to get back to work!

Have a very lovely day everyone!

Quick Update

Please excuse my *absence*. I have been working on getting the orders caught up but they began to really come in so I had to step away from the computer and get to processing orders.

I have also put the etsy shop in vacation mode to allow me to finish getting caught up. Trust me, I want you to get your products just as much as you look forward to getting them. ;-). I am trying to figure out how I can do the same with the website.

But, I will reopen both on Friday. This should give me ample time to finish every last order AND replenish inventory with the annual products as well as adding the Christmas line.

In the past I have not been quite this busy and so I am trying to manage my time the best way I can. A friend of mine volunteered to handle emails and convos for me. At the moment I am having her handle all the emails. I am trying to see if it's possible to add her to my account under my team with etsy's new rules that were implemented this past year. But this helps me tremendously as I get literally, 30-50 emails/convos a day inquiring about scents, shipping, custom orders and the such.

Don't freak out if all of a sudden you see the name Lori instead of DB. ;-)

I love conversing with my customers or anyone for that matter that drops me a line, but the amount of time I spend in front of the computer and the fact that I have 3 school age children with 3 different school times is very laborious. I hate to disappoint, so I have worked it out with Lori to help me. You can contact her at debaucherousbath[@] (minus the square brackets)

I am also adding a bonus gift to each order for all your patience. I know how hard it is to wait for something you paid for with your hard earned money. 

I am ever so grateful for your patience and understanding.

I hope you all have a fabulous week!

A Little About Me and Current Updates

Just a quick update, turn around time is still at 10-14 "business" days, but will be back to 3-4 by Friday, October 3rd.

I thought I'd take this time to share a little about me besides the usual.

I also just want to thank everyone for their continued patience, especially during this time of year when things really start to pick up. I am a one woman business with 4 kids in which 3 are in 3 different schools, at 3 different times due to their ages. So my schedule is very crazy during the week. At the same time, we are the only ones here without any other family to help out. My oldest is a full time college student in her 3rd year of obtaining her BA in film and works full time so the days of getting her help are long gone. My husband travels from time to time for work, but tries to help whenever he can.

When I started Debaucherous Bath I never thought it would get as big as it has gotten (and I am very blessed and thankful it has). It actually was not my intention to really grow this much and I started it as just a hobby and something to do with my spare time (yes even with 3 kids at the time, I actually had spare time, lol). To share my twisted ways in a sense (no pun intended). I was pregnant with my youngest and on bed rest the entire 9 months (having already suffered 4 miscarriages in the past). Bored out of my mind I created Debaucherous Bath. Although I was already in the industry for a decade by then, I had been on a long hiatus and was spending my time with my family and going to school full time to obtain my bachelors (up until my pregnancy).

Then a couple years ago, we had the unfortunate event of losing loved ones. I had to take a much needed break and just step away. A year later (and ago) I came back and have been at it since. While I have no intentions of going anywhere, I must say that being a 1 woman business, with a very busy schedule can be quite stressful at times.I try to do my best and know that at times I drop the ball, but I always pick it back up and keep going.

So, to keep things running as smoothly as possible, beginning October 1st, I will no longer be able to accept custom listings on etsy during the busy holiday season. I will continue to refund shipping overages as I always have. I will process shipping overages within  24 hours of your order being placed.

Also, beginning Monday October 6th, after I am completely caught up, I am taking a much needed week off from processing orders. I will resume processing orders on Monday October 13th for all orders received after 6th. I will still be available via email and convo and the shop and website will remain open. I will also be using this time to replenish stock and finish listing all the fall items on both etsy and the website. I just will not be processing orders during this week though. Everything will be listed, including all available samples.

Also, on October 13th, I will begin to launch the Christmas line. So this week off is very important and making sure everything is ready to go and keep TAT down as much as possible.

In the meantime, I am working here with the help of my bff whom I just adore. She comes over on the weekends all the way from Orange County to help process orders with me. Thank you L!

I am also working my way through convos and emails, so please bare with me. I am the kind of person that likes to take my time when answering and not rush through giving you crummy customer service. 

Again, thank you so much for all your patience. 

Have a fabulous week!

September Update

Just a little update here. I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather. The days are not quite cool here yet, but the nights have gotten chilly and I love it.

Last week I became quite ill with a stomach bug and then my children. My husband was the only lucky duck around here, lol. I am still feeling the effects and moving a bit slowly around here so my turn around time at the moment is running around 10-14 days. My apologies for the delay. Being a stay at home mom you never seem to get enough rest. 

I have help coming again today so I will be able to catch up, which will be a tremendous help as I am a 1 woman business ;-). After all orders have been caught up, I will be taking a short break. The shop will remain open, but the TAT will be changed to reflect 1-2 weeks. I plan to take 7-10 days off to relax and feel better, I need to get my energy back and feel like myself again. For some reason, this bug really got me and it's been quite some time I have ever been that sick. 

I will be taking time out tonight to answer convos and emails again. 

I thank you for your patience and hope you all have a fabulous week!

Fall Items

Good afternoon!

I hope everyone has been having a fabulous week so far. I just wanted to update on what's going on here. :-)

Shipping is currently running around 7-10 business days but I anticipate it to be back to 3-4 business days by the weekend.

Many of the fall items are up, but I still have many more to list, such as perfumes, whipped soaps and bubbling scrubs. This will include the remainder of the summer items.  The summer items will remain in the etsy shop until either sold out or the end of September, whichever comes first.

Next month I will be adding sugar scrubs which are different from the bubbling scrubs as they are the emulsifying type that turn into a creamy texture once in contact with water. I don't usually offer them during the warmer months but in many regions it will be cooling down soon enough. I wish it would here!

As well next month, by the 15th, I will be adding cold process soaps that have been curing and waiting for their new homes in many holiday scents! Woohoo!

And finally, I will be updating the website over the holiday weekend, so no vacation getaway for me, too much work to do! I'm ok with it really, I can't stand coming home in traffic, lol.

That's about it. As always, I thank you for your business and for your patience!

Have a fabulous rest of the week and Labor day holiday!

Spider Silk, Little Red Riding Hood...

Spider Silk is back but has been reformulated due to supplier issues.

Sadly from time to time, suppliers either go out of business, change their formulas or even discontinue some of the notes I use. Since every scent I offer is hand blended by me, I am often left frantically searching for either a replacement or to try and swoop up what I can or even better, buy in bulk if offered. Once in awhile I even have to discontinue a scent if I cannot find any of the above options. Luckily for me, many of the notes I use are purchased in bulk directly from the manufacturers, but for Spider Silk and Little Red Riding Hood, that was not the case. 

For Spider Silk, one of the notes I used seemed to morph and I was not pleased with that at all. So I set out all summer to find a replacement, while I did not find the exact note I needed, I did find a suitable replacement and have reformulated Spider Silk. It is noticeably different, but I am much more pleased with this newer version. The description remains the same though as the same types of notes were used. But there will be a notation in each listing stating Version 2 or V2. The label itself will note on the bottom, right hand corner, V2.

Little Red Riding Hood will be coming out as a newer version and is a whole new blend. I was not able to find any suitable replacement so I just decided to scrap the whole thing and come up with a new blend, in which I am quit pleased with and I think you will be too. This will be re-released by the end of August. I still have some of the older version and is available upon request until sold out.

Snow White, in the past you have read where my husband accidentally threw out my notes and on those notes were a few blends I had not yet converted into my book. Snow White was one of them sadly. I have been working on reformulating this one and will re-release this one in September. Luckily I remembered which notes were used in this blend and so I am now comparing the new blend to the old.

With that, I hope everyone has been having a fabulous weekend!

2014 Halloween/Fall Preview!

So it is back to school. All my kids are on these crazy schedules at 3 different schools! It's nuts, but in a way I am so glad they are going back. They were beginning to drive me a little nuts, hehe. But it is always a wonderful time for me to spend with my kids without so much of the daily grind.

So with that note, I am happy to announce that I am nearly caught up on all orders!  Woohoo! I am so excited. Working overtime this weekend to get them all caught up. This gives me time to list the rest of the summer items and begin to list the fall/halloween products which you may have already seen in the etsy shop. The website will be later this week.

The mens line will be debuting by the beginning of September. Sometime in October, as the weather begins to cool, Bathory will be making a return and will be available in more scents.

I have some exciting new Halloween scents making their debut later this month as well. 

Here is a sneak peak:

The Pumpkin Head Girls~

The one time of year they can leave their house and no one would know. Trick or Treating with all the other kids, laughing, eating candy and enjoying all the frights in sight. Looking like they were wearing pumpkins over their heads, no one suspected, they were the Pumpkin Head Girls.

Crimson Pumpkins, Marshmallow Goo, crystallized Maple Sap, Rotting Leaves, Moss covered Logs. 


The Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of what is considered the darker half of the year. For many Pagans it is considered a Sabbat to honor the ancestors, the darkest time of the year. 

Damp Woods, Sprouting Mushrooms, Decaying Leaves of Rust & Gold, Autumnal Woods, Chilly Autumn Wind, Dark Patchouli and Mullein Leaves.

Haunted Mansion~

Creepy, dark and old was the house on Manor Lane. Kids dared each other to go up and knock on the door, but no one ever did. Until one day a boy name Johnny decided to take the dare, announcing he feared nothing. He rang the bell, the door crept open, he hesitantly walked in, but soon came running out screaming with a streak of white in his hair. Poor Johnny never spoke again, he sits in his room with fright in his eyes, staring at the walls, rocking himself back and forth, unable to forget what he saw.

Dead Honeysuckle Vines, Withered Violets, Rotting Blackberry Bushes, Crystallized Webs of Amber, a Decaying Beehive and parched 200 year old trees.

Bat Crazy~

There once was a girl named Katie, who thought very highly of herself. Growing up daddy always told her how beautiful she was and gave her anything she wanted. Always telling her she was his little princess. Full of arrogance she'd roam the town in her fake designer clothes, pulling favors for every guy she came in contact with thinking they loved her for her. She always felt she was above everyone else. Always demanding people do for her and never returning the loyalty. She only had one true friend and one day she insisted her one and only true friend was jealous and envious of her. So mad with her thoughts, she lost her mind and went Bat Crazy on anyone that came in her path. She now lives all alone, looking at herself in the mirror all day long with a face only a mother could love.

Sour Grapes, Bitter Haystacks, Black Patchouli. Sweet Sandalwood and Blood Red Cedar.

Ichabod Crane~

Wool Coat, Leather Boots, Amber Resin, Woodsmoke and Fir Needle.

Ghosts of Deathly Manor~

Dripping Wax Candles, Whispers of Golden Apples, Frankincense Tears and Ghostly White Oaks.

Halloween Pin Up~

Caramel Chews, Jack o' Lanterns, Chocolate Candy Bars of all assortments, Bath Wings and Crows Feet.

Sleepy Hollow~

Deathly White Pumpkins, Moss Covered Woods, Dark Vanilla, Rotted Cranberries and just a hint of Aged Leather. 

Pumpkin King~

Glowing Pumpkins, Honey Butter, Autumnal Spices, Beeswax Candles and rotting Citrus.

Time to stop and smell the roses

This month has been super crazy. Returning from my convalescence and getting right back into the swing of things has been quite the challenge. My turn around has climbed up yet again which I really hate. And I've been trying to keep up with convos and emails. If I have not gotten back to you, please be patient as I work my way to you.

I ran into a bit of a snag after my recovery. One of my incisions had reopened (yuck and ouch!) and I was ordered by my dr to slow down, but that just seemed impossible. So instead, I limited the amount of time and work I put into my business the past couple weeks. Working specific business hours instead of the usual working from the moment I wake and staying up late after everyone's asleep thing. Of course that makes TAT go longer unfortunately. Then I began to pick up the pace after recovering from that incident. Then last week we lost a member of our family, one of our dogs is gone and we have been devastated beyond words. Having 4 kids and explaining the loss to them was so hard. My 11 year old took it the hardest and is still having a hard time. It has now been a week since we lost him. Our other dogs are so sad that they mope around and are not even eating. Here we are trying to console ourselves, each other and our furbabies. Honestly, I don't even know what to do when the others won't eat. :-(

I think we tend to forget just how much of a life we really have. We tend to do the usual family thing, work thing and so on, but we forget to stop and smell the roses, look at the beautiful blue sky and spend quality time with our loved ones. 

Well, I finally got some help here so that I *can* stop and smell the roses per se, ;-) and we should be caught up by Friday. A few of you received shipping notices but the order hadn't left yet and that was why, my deepest apologies for the delay. Those are leaving tomorrow in addition to the others we've been getting caught up on. I have to say that I truly thank you for your patience. I am including little gifts in every order received up until this the 31st (July) to thank you all for your patience. You will not be disappointed!

Thank you all again for your continued business, Debaucherous Bath wouldn't be what it is today without you.

I hope everyone has a fabulous week!

Summer Sale & TAT

All orders are nearly caught up. By Monday all orders received by today will be shipped. I thank you for being so patient while I get caught up after my convalescence. To show you how much I appreciate you, I will be running a weekend sale, last one for quite some time since the holidays are fast approaching. 

Use code SWEETSUMMERLOVE for 15% off any order of $20.00 or more at my etsy shop. NOT valid on sample sizes, can use it on the already discounted for clearance items. Sale ends Sunday, July 13th, at 11:59pm. Sale starts now.

Sale not valid on sample sizes, please purchase separately. I will gladly combine orders to save on shipping. Not valid with any other offer or code. Please note that due to the sale, TAT may be slightly delayed. Thank you!

Product Update and Clearance

Today I will be adding the remainder of the new scents. I've been a bit delayed so that I can get all the orders caught up from my time off. 

Also, I will be running a quick sale on the spring items I have left in stock to allow room for the summer collection and the new products that I will be debuting later this month. 

And lastly, I have begun working on the new fall scents, yes fall! So I need to make lots of room here. :-)

I will go through my inventory today and post the sale items in my etsy shop tonight. Some include Cottontail Rabbit and Spring Bees. I have a few others that are still in stock that need to go, which include Little Red Riding Hood. This particular scent is being retired due to the fact that one of the notes I use has been discontinued by my supplier sadly. But I will be coming back with a revised version, even better than before. 

All the clearance items will be 20% off. Any discount codes will not be valid on clearance items.

Have a fabulous day!

Order Updates

Just a quick update on orders. Tomorrow all orders received while I was on medical leave will be shipped and I will begin working on the orders received beginning last week. I should be up to date by Friday and back at 3-4 day TAT.

Thank you so much for your patience!!

July Fragrance of the Month

July's Fragrance of the Month is:

Aloha 'oe

Aloha 'oe (Farewell to you), is what he said to her, feeling as though his heart was being ripped out of his chest. He knew he was in love with her from the moment they met. It was the only thing he could say to her as she left the island. He knew she was there on a vacation, but he couldn't help from falling in love with her. He tried denying it to himself. All the while she felt the same way and he had no idea.

Plumeria petals touched with orchid leis, a tropical ocean breeze kissed with guavas and pikaki.

A Debaucherous Summer Release

I am running a little slow today as certain movements still cause me pain, so bare with me as I add the new scents today. It'll take me little awhile. I am still working on editing some photos but inventory is ready to ship so that's not the issue. Just working on the photos.

The first to be added will be Sleeping Beauty.

And then more in the hour.

Thank you for your patience!

I'm Back!

I am back from my medical leave. It seemed like the time was going by so slow and now it seems it has gone by too fast!

All orders received while I was on leave will begin to ship Monday as today I'll spend the day packing them.

As of today turn around time will be at 4-5 business days. 

As scheduled, Monday will be the debut of the summer collection!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Quick Update

Just a quick update. 

So I have been feeling quite well for the last few days. The first week was horrendous and much harder than I thought it would be. But I am finally feeling much better. Just trying to take it easy until I am fully recovered, which can take 2-3 months. But, it does not restrict me from working on what I love most, which is Debaucherous Bath of course! I'm mostly restricted from heavy lifting, exercise and the such, which is the norm. 

I will be returning as scheduled. I will be debuting the new products/scents on June 30th, at 3pm pacific time.

Until then, I hope you all have a fabulous week!

Friday, June 6, 2014

Medical Leave Reminder

I will be having surgery as discussed previously, in a week. My dr said I can return to work after 1 week to 10 days (without lifting), but strongly prefers I wait 2. So I am allowing myself the full 2 weeks, unless I'm up to it and bored out of my mind! lol. To keep myself busy I will be watching dvd's to get caught up on my favorite shows or shows I just never got a chance to watch. So much fun! ;-)

All orders will be processed and shipped by Friday June 13th. I will not be processing orders beginning June 14th until my return by June 27th under any circumstances. During that time the shop and website will remain open and orders will be reflecting a 14 business day turn around time, which does not includes weekends or holidays. 

The website and etsy shop will remain open with a stated Turn Around Time of 14 business days for your consideration before placing any orders. I will not be available via convo or email during this time. As much as I'd love to, I honestly do not think I will be able to. I'm just going to allow this time for a much needed rest and recuperation.

Also, I will be unable to do any rush orders before my closure. My apologies for the inconvenience.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

New Summer Products & Scents Debut

I am happy to announce that towards the end of June my new summer collection will be making its debut. Many new exciting scents and products are coming!

Just a few of the new scents to come:

Voodoo Black~

Lotion, Whipped Soap, Bubbling Scrub, Perfume

Passing through the bayou, Spanish moss hanging from the cypress trees touching you as you drift down, a light glows in the distance, reflecting off the still waters. Drawing closer, there is a chanting in the distance, unbeknownst to you. Drawing you into a trance of voodoo black.

Dead Cypress, Spanish Moss, Frankincense Tears, Fir Balsam, Wild Blackberries, Red Musk, drops of Elemi and Jatamansi.


Lotion, Whipped Soap, Bubbling Scrub, Perfume

Back in the says of the Prohibition era, my great grandmother was what you would call a bootlegger. She was always on the run, shot at, chased, you name it, all to get that liquor to those that desired it so badly. She had quite the stories to tell my grandfather in which he later would tell us grandkids.

Applewood, Mandarin, Calabrian Bergamot, spices of Cardamom and Peppercorn, Smoky Vetiver, aged Patchouli, Oakmoss and a splash of Rum.

Bayou Blue~

Lotion, Whipped Soap, Bubbling Scrub, Perfume

The whole time I was in Louisiana, visiting my family, all I could hear was "Born on the Bayou" by John Fogerty playing in my head over and over again as we would go past all the beautiful bayous and swamps. It was just so fitting! And I absolutely loved every moment of it while I was there.

Wild blueberries intertwined with Honeysuckle vines, Spanish Moss and Old Cypress trees.


Lotion, Whipped Soap, Bubbling Scrub, Perfume

Opera House~

Lotion, Whipped Soap, Bubbling Scrub, Perfume

The Opera House was where the vaudeville, burlesque and cabaret acts were performed long ago in the wild west. Imagine the piano playing, smoke in the air from all the cigars, the wooden stage, lights glaring, hot stuffy air and the audience entertained through it all.

Also, the following new products will be making their debut as well:

Hair Oil~ I have 2 new types of hair oils making their debut. 

Clay's Mustache and Beard Wax, and Clay's Beard Elixir will be available in the following scents:

Army of the Dead
Beware of the Kraken
Mr Hyde
Dr Jekyll
Leather Sea
The Gentlemen's Club
Voodoo Black

And for a very limited time, and by limited, meaning probably will never do again, I will be offering custom blended perfumes. There will be a very limited number of these available. I will be offering 3 and 4 note choices. I have such an extensive variety of essential and fragrance oils as well as resins, absolutes and CO2's your head would spin! LOL. Pricing on this will not be near the standard $15 perfumes I offer in the amber 5ml bottles.  I will probably narrow it down quite a bit to try and keep the headache at a minimum for both you and I, lol, as well as keep the pricing in a more reasonable range.

That is about it for now. Perfume Petite Samples in the new scents will be available beginning next week. 

All new scents and products will debut June 30th.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Shipping Options

I wanted to clear up some shipping options here.

As of late you may be noticing that if your order is 6 jars or less I am shipping your order in a small priority mail boxed tucked inside a flat rate envelope for $5.05 (domestic) and $23.50 for International. I have started doing this in the past month (always for international) at the request of many of you.

I never ship the larger items in just the envelopes themselves and risk any damage. If your order qualifies for first class, I will ship that way (usually samples and lip balms ship in the 5x7 envelopes) or larger orders/items (depending on the size of the order), I ship as medium flat rate at $11.30 or Regional A boxes which is between $6-$10.00, depending on destination. Sometimes same state or neighboring states I can ship up to 3lbs for under $8 priority mail. 

I do this to help you save on shipping, insurance is always included up to $50. If for any reason, you do not want them shipped in the box and flat rate envelope, please let me know. I will ship the best way for you.

As always, I charge exact shipping and always refund excess shipping of $1.50 or more.

Thank you!
