Just a few new things for June!
Initially, we planned to skip Neisthai this year - keep it from wearing out it’s welcome. But we had so many customer requests that we thought we’d acquiesce and add some variety to summer. So!
Neisthai - Sultry evenings, sweet iced tea in glasses beaded with sweat. Age-old roses and magnolia blossoms. Fallen peaches and wild blackberries. Honeycrisps and banks of honeysuckle. Acres of cut clover, mown grass and old, musty wood. Neisthai, to return - the homecoming. This fragrance fuses classic Southern archetypes with the scent-memory of my own picturesque homestead garden. More than the sum of its parts, Neisthai draws on rich, gourmand notes, delicate florals, crisp fruits, and traditional base notes to create an evocative whole.
New this year! An experimental aquatic with a sweet side… Sweetgum Swamp - Old dunes, sturdy salt-burned woods, and sunwarmed, wild blueberries. Inspired by the Sweetgum Swamp Trails in North Carolina’s outer banks, this scent references the beautiful relationship between sheltering evergreens and delicate deciduous plant-life. Debuting in a faded blue-n-violet Soap, we wouldn’t mind expanding on this theme. Let us know what you think about it, and we’ll see where we end up.
July’s Staff Pick is the returning Some More Smack! featuring gooey portions of Marshmallow, Chocolate Mousse and Honey Nut singed with Bonfire. It is, exquisite.
To complement the Staff Pick, we’ve continued with our Rough Cuts line - Some More Rough Cuts - Smokey milk chocolate, sandwiched with toasted marshmallow between cinnamon honey grahams. It’s a gorgeous layered snack-size soap!
Discounts! We’ve taken the liberty of marking down our oldest Black Label collections - remaining stock in Supervillainess, Sidewalk, and Pipevine Swallowtail scents are now 10% off their original prices. These discounts are taken in cart, so no codes are necessary. And freebies! Orders subtotaling $30 are welcome to snag a free Quick or Dead? Cheap Shot through the 8th (or while supplies last). The cart will process this as “free” but you will definitely need to add it to your cart/order (limit 2 per order). We figure, this way you can snag the awesome logo, even if you’re not overfond of the leather ‘n sweetgrass scent of Quick or Dead?. Don’t worry - we won’t judge.
Hope you all enjoy the release! Enjoy the 4th and don’t blow up anything important!
