New Releases for April 2008

Recommended Posts

Food isn't that important. As long as I have water (and perfume) I can survive indefinitely.

I know that I am prone to digression.... but, this is apropro... just have patience :20628860864593fef0b8f29:

 

So, the other day, the Bears, My Beloved, and I (with the boys in my car), all of us in separate vehicles as we are coming home from work, decided to meet for dinner... I ask the Bears to hold my keys and cell phone because they like to carry a big bag... and I prefer to not even carry a purse.... The Bears end up having to take one of the boys home and they leave the resturant before My Beloved and I... and, of course, they leave *still holding my keys*

 

I don't clue in to this fact until My Beloved and I prepare to leave....

 

The Bears are already at home... with my keys...

 

My Beloved's plan is for me to ride home with him and we will swing by the next morning on the way to synagogue...

 

"NOOOOO," I wail. "I have a limited edition in the car!!!"

 

The Bears understood completely.

(May's) Spanish Gold - is it because of the gold flakes in the perfume (you've got it in a bottle with just a hang tag, maybe)?

 

I'm trying to imagine what Synchronicity smells like, heh. But I think I need to try it because I'm always saying that my life is ruled by it. :20628860864593fef0b8f29:

You're right, my mistake!

Ok, scents?

 

Turkish Delight ~ We've combined the flavors of this delectable candy, (Rose, Lemon and Mint), with the deep resiny Attars of the Turkish Dancers. Ail came up with this suggestion around 6 months ago; we combined her tasty idea with a touch of mystery and the exotic.

 

Beltane ~ Fruit, Blossoms, Incense and Smoke - for perfume and ritual use; for growth, fertility, sex and blessings. Danna's personal recipe that she makes for herself every year, released to the public for the first time because May talked us into it!

 

Anti-Piggy ~ The recipe for this one was given to me by a Canadian Massage and Aroma Therapist. It consists of a specific combination of fruits and spearmint which is fabled to work as an appetite suppressant. Now, we're certainly not allowed to sell it as such - we're selling it as a lovely little perfume, but I'll be very curious to hear if it has an appetite suppressing effect on any of us! Raven and Dolly each had a hand in this one coming together.

 

Fortune Cookie ~ The scent of crispy cookies, Chinese Teas and a drop of Almond! (Good guessing, girls!) Full-sized bottles will be accompanied by a REAL Fortune Cookie! We had them freshly baked just for us, with our own special surprises for you inside!

 

Turn On ~ I wanted to do a real traditional 60's Hippie scent. A nostalgic trip back to the days of tie-dyed bell bottoms and vinyl records, lava lamps, enormous 'fros, and free love. People make fun of the 'dirty hippie' smell, but phooey, I actually always liked those rich incensey oils and wanted to make a really quality version that would act like a time machine for your mind.

 

Night of the Fae ~ The result of a night of Fae magic: the wee ones dancing upon unopened flowers, crisp leafy stalks and yet to ripen fruits; watery with fresh morning dew.

 

UN for Men ~ An un-phero-ed variant of our SUPER for Men. This version is a bit more brisk and fresh, with the addition of Lavender and a tad less sweetness; with pipe tobacco, woody notes, and maple. An undeniably MALE scent, somewhat reminiscent of the scent of a barber shop of old. I'm certain that many of you gals will find it irrisistable to wear yourselves, and without those super-sexual-dominant male pheros you can, without fear of getting grouchy. --- I named it UN due to the removal of the pheros, UN-Super-ing it, so to speak, but also because UN is the masculine form of the number ONE in French, (UNE being the feminine). --- Stumbling across the artwork was a dream. The artist who revamped this piece of classical artwork (he prefers to be credited simply as CODA) titled it "A DAY OFF", and I just thought it was too perfect to pass up. A beautiful scent one can wear just because you love it, even if you're not in the mood to be "SUPER" that day.

 

Synchronicity ~ Our lone, scented pheromone-enhanced offering for this month. This one contains the "Drop Your Guard" pheromone formula, in a comforting, companionable fragrance that both women and men can wear and enjoy. A warm, resiny musk with a hint of vanilla and an inviting tease of intrigue.

 

Southern Gothic™ 2008 ~ YAY! Our Southern Belle is back for Spring! This is Danna's flagship blend that she brought along with her from her own company, "Southern Gothic Magickal Scents™" when she and I joined forces a few years back. Each year, she tweaks the balance of ingredients a little for a unique experience, but the flowers in the bouquet remains constant - rich Southern florals that can't help but bring to mind the thickly humid Southern heat - swinging on a wooden porch in Georgia surrounded by fragrant blossoms, a fan in one hand, a mint julep in the other...

 

MIASMA ~ So, no one took up the challenge to look up this story on the other thread, but it's nothing short of fascinating and I heartily encourage you to do so on Wikipedia if you have any interest in religious history. A somewhat circuitous tale perhaps, to get to this title, this label, and this scent, but it all makes sense, and I think Pythoness is with me as well, as we developed the idea for this in tandem. --- MIASMA is an ode to the "Dark Queen" Catherine de Medici of France, circa mid 1500's. Her tale is at times heartbreaking, as she was no doubt sorely abused and reviled without good reason, and accused of witchcraft unfairly, but later became ruthless and embittered, perhaps latently earning her mantle of The Dark Queen. --- One of her many alleged crimes is that of poisoner, and this perfume, based around Lily of the Valley, is comprised of poisonous florals such as this, that would have been easily within her reach at the time. The Lily is a symbol of France, as is the Fleur De Lys logo - a symbol of both the flower and the country. --- The word MIASMA comes from one of the most horrifying events in (religious) history, that of the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre. By the time the riot and fervor were over, the French Catholics had murdered 10,000 Protestants, and no doubt, retroactively disgusted, blamed Catherine de Medici as instigator, claiming that the witch released a *miasma* into the air (an air-borne spell/poison/disease) that was responsible for their actions. Whew! But don't let that put you off! LOL! The scent of this perfume is GORGEOUS, albeit with a très foncé (very dark) inspiration!

 

Spanish Gold ~ Board member *May* painted such a longingly beautiful image of her love of Spain, that I instantly became obsessed with her idea for a potion entitled "Spanish Gold". I have spent the past 6 months hunting down ingredients as she described to make this perfume. Now, keep in mind, neither Danna nor I have ever been there, and we have no idea what the air actually smells like, so authentic it shant be, but what we've done is taken all of the elements present in May's memory, and made a beautiful perfume out of them. Olives, Stephanotis flowers, Hibiscus, Rosemary and other herbs and spices, Citrus and more... --- So, why no real label picture? Because the label is CLEAR. The better to view the hypnotic flakes of pure 24 karat, edible quality, GOLD floating within the full-sized bottles!

Wow ladies, you never cease to amaze! These labels and decriptions are so very inviting. I am still definetly going to sample all and it looks like I may have to splurge on some full bottles before I smell, such as Spanish Gold!

 

Thank-you for all the time and energy you put into these. I love how each one has a story, a purpose...

Oh wow!

 

I'm so glad Spanish Gold is being released this month. I've been working on some soul-destroyingly dull work and aching to just put everything down, head to the airport and go to Spain.

Obviously I can't do that at the moment - but at least I can smell Spanish now!

 

Thank you ladies!

 

May

Yay! :20628860864593fef0b8f29: I slept through the night so time would go faster and it did!!! I am totally blown away with the amount of work you ladies do in a month! These descriptions are so incredibly diverse, what creative minds you must have! But what really impresses me is that not only can you think them up but you can actually manufacture an incredible product, market it and get it released! :) I know you must have some kind of serious productivity potion going on over there!And to venture into the pheromones is brilliant! I am totally impressed!

 

 

Ok, so now when will all of these lovelies be shipped??????? :)

 

 

Kudos on all of your fabulous work!

Oh, the scents all sound so wonderful!! :20628860864593fef0b8f29: It will be so hard to chose. I may have to imploy my patented scent picking device. i.e. putting all the choices in a hat and chosing one at random. Saves me from having to make up my mind. Although I'm sure Piggy has my name on it!

Ugh...I know...just when I'd decided that this month I'd restrain myself and only get samples of those I *really REALLY* wanted...but when there's over 5 of them, how can you NOT go for the whole month's sample?

Thats why I almost always get the whole set... one of these days, when I have the extra cash not already earmarked for the purchases of full bottles, I am going to buy the annual subscription.

 

Just out of curiousity... do most of you invoice-order the new releases (i.e. email your request to the ladies) or do you wait until they show up on the store inventory? I'm trying to figure out which is a 'kinder' method for the ladies; didn't it take Mara a full day or two to get out from under the barrage of emails we sent her with March's releases?

They should be up in the store within around 2 days, and the orders processed and ready to ship around the start of next week. Monday or Tuesday.

 

Thanks for all the kind words! :)

 

Me = Happy!

I have a question about the Essence Oil...since it's in an oil base, will it be more difficult to cover up than the original alcohol-based version, and/or will it take longer for the scent to die down, compared to the original (so that it can then be covered up)? Also, does it smell the same as the original and is the smell as strong?

I don't have any empirical evidence to back this up, but I think it would cover more easily... as the oil will mix better with the roll-on perfume oils we get from LP

You'll have to experiment!

 

It's EXACTLY the same strength as what you are used to buying. The smell is the same, only the base has changed.

 

We anticipate that the differences will be, that the scent will lie closer to the skin - it will not diffuse in the air so much without the prescence of alcohol - and the scent may linger longer in the end.

 

We think it may not be as harsh on initial application, because there will be less of it in the air.

 

Please, everyone, report your experiences with it!

I can't wait for these to go live! Turkish Delight sounds fantastic-I love roses and exotic-type scents. And Night of the Fae! I've been looking forward to an LP fairy scent!

 

Will there be an 'Une' for women?
