New Scents, Products and More

We are still working on the issues with etsy and hope to have a resolution this week. In the meantime, you can still order from the website. If there is something you are looking for not listed on our website, email us.

At the moment, our website is not relfecting first class rates and we are working on getting that corrected. 

Our current TAT is an exciting 2-3 business days! Woohoo!

We are expecting our new look to launch sometime next week. We're so excited, shipping will be upgraded and live, accurate shipping quotes will be available. We have also offered another shipping option, FedEx! 

We have new, very limited edition scents coming this month, exclusively in perfume. A few are all natural with beeswax absolute, coconut pulp CO2, Bulgarian Rose and more. These will be very rare and very limited to stock on hand. We also will be releasing a new mens line, and just in time for Fathers day. More details in this weeks newsletter. Be sure to sign up here: 

Debaucherous Bath Newsletter

Summer is almost here, which means our summer scents will be making their appearance this week on the website. These are from our past collections, a Debaucherous Summer and our Aloha Ipo collection. New summer scents will be making their debut later this month, which includes a Tudor collection as well as many others.

We also have new products debuting later this month as well. More details in this months newsletter.

We hope you have a fabulous day!

Tuesday, April 21, 2015


We have been able to continue to ship the remainder of the flat rate packages for the time being. But all orders from here on out will not be shipped with the flat rate envelopes.

In the meantime, we are excited to say we have set up a temporary feature for shipping on our website. This is available until we update our website next month with it's updated look and features. We hope this makes shopping easier for you. 

Please note, at this time it does not reflect the Regional A and B boxes as well as medium and large flat rates. But shipping is pretty close with those priority mail rates and this should help quite a bit compared to the system we used previously. As always, any overages will be refunded if needed. Again, this is a temporary fix until the update is fully completed on May 8th.

USPS Flat Rate Envelopes-UPDATED

We feel like screaming at the top of our lungs. We came back from a run to our local post office this morning only to find out, that all packages that are in the flat rate envelopes have been rejected and are no longer being accepted as of 4 weeks ago and are either to be rejected or returned to the sender unless they are completely flat.

We checked our po box to see if any came back and sure enough, there were quite a few. All packages that went out last week are going to be reshipped in the correct boxes and everyone will be receiving new tracking numbers as e receive them back. We apologize for the HUGE inconvenience this has caused everyone and ask that you please be patient while we do this. 

This should not take us too long to repackage the orders, but may take a few days for your packages to be returned to us if it hasn't already. We will also be sending out a mass email informing everyone of this.

We cannot tell you how many times we have received items like this and have shipped without issue, as far as we knew it was not a problem. We were never told we couldn't after all this time we have been shipping in this manner.

We feel this may be the reason we have had such a huge problem with USPS and the delay on shipping that reflects on us as a business.

This also means we can no longer ship for a flat rate up to 6 jars to our international customers.


Note: Flat Rate prices are available when material is sent in a USPS-produced Flat Rate Envelope or Box. When sealing a Flat Rate Box or Flat Rate Envelope, the container flaps must be able to close within the normal folds. Tape may be applied to the flaps and seams to reinforce the container; provided the design of the container is not enlarged by opening the sides and the container is not reconstructed in any way.  

Other than this bit of information, we could not find anything else in regards to exact thickness of the flat rate envelopes in the domestic mail manual regarding flat rate eligibility. There is clearly no rule with regards to thickness. If anyone has any other information, please feel free to email us. Rest assured, we will continue to look into this. We have been finding conflicting information all over the internet about some post offices not accepting while others do. We will also be putting in a call to USPS on Monday as again, as far as we know there are no restrictions on this type of shipping.

And if it is deemed that these packages are acceptable, we will be opening a consumer affairs case against the postmaster.

Anyhow, because of this, we acted quickly and are currently in the process of switching our website over to another hosting company that offers real time shipping quotes.

Our designer has told us to expect to go live with this new "look" and shipping feature by May 8th. 

In the meantime, as always, we always refund shipping overages. Also, international customers, we will invoice you for correct shipping charges BEFORE your order ships.

Feel free to email us first before placing an order for shipping quotes.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this frustrating time.

Thursday, April 16, 2015


We are so excited to announce we have completed nearly 100 orders from both the shop and etsy that was placed while we were on vacation/hiatus!  Yay!!!

Now our current turn around time is at 2-3 business days. This weekend I will be updating all inventory and adding more items to the website. Still working on the etsy issue and should have it resolved soon.

We thank you for your patronage and your patience!

Tuesday, April 14, 2015


We are having a few issues with our etsy shop at the moment. In the meantime, all orders are still being processed and we will update tracking as they leave. Our website is still open and you may place orders there for the time being. We will be updating the website this week to reflect current inventory.

The etsy shop will be updated asap as well.

Thank you!

We are back!

We are back from our 4 week vacation!  The shop and website will be updated this evening. All orders placed during the vacation will be processed and shipped as quickly as possible.

Lori will be working on convos and emails by this evening.

Happy Spring!!!

Current Update

We are working on the last of the etsy orders and will have all out by Wednesday. So exciting! There is nothing like that sense of relief and peace of mind. :-)

If your tracking has not updated from Fridays shipments, please be patient. Usps does not always updatd tracking and it seems to be a well known issue within the etsy community forums. We are keeping an eye o them as always. ;-)
Lori will be working on convos and emails tonight as I work on the remainder of the orders.

Please keep in mind, beginning Monday, Match 16th, you will still be able to place an order, but it just won't be processed until we return, April 13th.

As always, we thank you for your patronage and your patience!

Thursday, March 12, 2015

Website Orders

Woohoo! All orders from the website have been shipped. We will be updating tracking via paypal tonight.

Thank you so much for your for your patience!

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Quick Update

Just a quick update, we are working rather quickly over here and should have all orders out no later than Monday. As always, depending upon the volume of orders by the weekend for our vacation, the TAT can change, but again, we are working on a good flow here and would expect no later than Wednesday, worse case scenario.

We are also working on convos and emails. It seems many emails from the website were not coming through and we are trying to work on that. 

If you are trying to contact us, please email us directly at debaucherousbath[at]gmaildotcom instead of using the website.

Thank you for your patience!

Tax Season, Vacation Notice and a Sale???

Well, tax season is upon us and with that a much needed break. So beginning at the end of March we will be taking a few weeks off to do our taxes, inventory and take a little vacation (yes, a real vacation!).

Both the website and etsy shop will remain open, but, it will reflect a 4 week TAT in which orders will not be processed during that time. We will be closed for vacation beginning March 16th. Orders received during that time will not begin to be processed until we return Monday, April 13th, 2015. By this time we will begin to debut our summer collections.

Due to the fact that we will be away on a real vacation (to which I am so excited about!) we will not be available via email or convo from March 30th, until April 7th. We will however, be available via convo and email before the 30th and after the 7th, so no fear! ;-)

All orders received before March 16th will be processed and shipped out accordingly. 

In the meantime, how about one of our semi annual sales? Yep, here's the details!

Thursday, February 26, 2015


I am beyond heart broken. Words cannot describe my feelings at this moment for the loss of my cat. He passed away today at a few weeks shy of turning 17. He always followed me everywhere, talking to me, keeping me warm. My best friend. I am so sad.

Thursday, February 19, 2015


Good evening!

A few updates, if you received a shipping notice today, our lovely mail carrier (and not our regular one) arrived earlier than scheduled so a majority of the packages missed todays cutoff. But they will be leaving tomorrow. Which brings us to the updated TAT. I am so *EXCITED* to announce, we are caught up!!!!! With just a few more orders to go we will be back at 2-3 business days beginning Monday. I am so excited. It's been a long time since we've been able to catch up like this. But Lori and I have been hustling over here like mad women!

So, all the new scents have been added in lotions so far, some perfumes. Since we have been here working round the clock I haven't had a chance to add the remainder of the items, which btw, I know it's past Valentines Day, but better late than never, right? ;-) So, I will be adding the remainder of the items over the weekend. I'm also going to take some time to work on inventory and repenish many items that are out of stock.

Also, a friendly reminder, some scents are being retired. They are:

Twilight Night
Can Can Girl
Cinderella's Carriage (will return in the Fall)
Drink Me (will return in the Fall)

We cannot thank you enough for your continued patience!

Have a fabulous weekend!

February Fragrance of the Month

February's Fragrance of the month is:

Mad Alice

This free perfume petite is with every order of $25.00 or more in addition to the free perfume petite sample included with every order of $10.00 or more.

Quick Update

So it seems that we can never catch a break over here. My family and I came down with a horrible stomach bug, each one of us slowly, one by one over the course of 10 days. There are 6 of us here, we are just glad it has finally passed. Lori took over and did all that she could during this time to which I am so blessed to have her around.

In the meantime, the Valentines collection has been delayed due to this. I am finally on the mend and we are making headway on all the orders. I am using this beautiful Sunday to process as many orders as I can get done while Lori has the weekend off, bless her heart. With the progress we are making, I estimate that by mid week, we will be back to a 2-3 business day TAT. This may change depending on the volume of orders that come in. It seems that from early fall (or usually late summer) until valentines day is a pretty busy time for us. 

The valentine collection will be added to the website by Monday and etsy by mid week.

In regards to samples, Lori and I receive many inquiries as to purchasing samples in lotions, whipped soaps and the scrubs. aside from the perfume petites already offered. These samples can be found on our website. To keep TAT down we will be minimizing the amount of custom listings for these items since not all are listed in our etsy shop. But they can be found on our website.

We are also working on providing a better preforming website for you. This will have real time shipping costs for both US and international customers, inventory control and more payment options. We anticipate to have this launched by late spring or early summer.

As always, we cannot thank you all enough for your patience and the kind words we receive via convo, email and your messages with your orders. Thank you so much for being so kind to us!!

Have a fabulous day and if you are a die hard fan like we are, don't miss the walking dead tonight!

Happy New Year & 2015 Policies Update

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday! I was able to rest a tad, aside from visiting family, we all got sick. Always lovely, although we did get our flu shots, that can't hold back getting colds. But we are all on the mend thank goodness! This is just one of the perks of being a large family. ;-)

I just wanted to let everyone know there have been a few changes this year to the way we are doing things around here. This is going to be a long post. :-(

As a result to sample and coupon abuse this past busy season, we have been forced to make a few changes sadly.

I feel like such a scrooge in doing this, but after much consideration and talking it over with my business attorney, a revised business plan was put into place effective January 1st, 2015. Part of that plan involves how coupon codes and samples will be issued/given.

There will be less coupon codes/sales this year. For one, any type of sale seems to slow us down dramatically, resulting in letting customers down, which we do not want. We want to give you the best experience at Debaucherous Bath.

At the same time, it just seems that not many are reading the policies, or even the disclaimer when it is right next to the coupon code/sale itself. Coupon codes/sales do not, have not and will not ever apply to samples. The work that goes into making each sample on top of the costs for the ingredients is time consuming, to which the sample is already discounted. Our products are not mass produced, we are a small handmade business that hand makes each and every product myself alone, up until this past season, with Lori helping out with the packaging, shipping and customer service. It's just not feasible to offer discounts on already discounted samples.On top of that, etsy just does not have a feature where we can eliminate the samples from the coupon codes.

Which leads us to when and how many sales a year we will be offering. We have contemplated long and hard on this one and have decided that sales/coupon codes will only occur twice a year (semi annual). There may be a time where we will make an exception to the rule and have one due to inventory, etc. But at this time, they will only happen twice a year. This will help in keeping the TAT faster which in turn will allow us to provide you, the customer, with exceptional service.

Which leads us to the coupon codes that have been issued previously, these codes will be valid until the end of the month. So those that have the codes will still be able to use them until January 31st, 2015.

Samples, every order of $10.00 or more will recevie a free perfume petite sample, of your choice, with the exception of the followig scents:

Debaucherous Amber
The Queen Bee
Big Bad Wolf
Beguiling Violette
Golden Frankincense
Bella Miele
Apothecary Rose
Arctic Wolf

The above listed scents are not included due to the costs in formulating them.  These scents are made with CO2's, absolutes, resins and essential oils that are much more costly and are already discounted as samples for purchase.

The fragrance of the month perfume petite sample will still be offered with any purchase of $25.00 or more.

Another issue we came upon in the past year, lip balm tubes. We had quite a few complaints about the tubes twisting up but not back down. After much discussion with our supplier, these are not made to go back down like a lip stick tube does. So therefore, there is no defect with the lip balm tubes themselves.The lip balm tubes are made to twist as needed. 

As always, we thank you for your patronage and for your understanding.
