Beautiful things for spring! Reappearing is, Pipevine Swallowtail - Aromatic basil and bitter tomato leaf in an ephemeral haze of neroli and tangerine. It is a beautiful creme coloured soap, shot through with burnt lavender, and polished with the smokey blue and grey of the namesake butterfly. This year, we’ve done this up in our signature light Whipped! creme, and a beautiful, orange-saturated, Smooch! body scrub. And in our new glass votive container, a cheerful spring-green Burn!.
Returning favourite Sidewalk evokes my favourite childhood memories with Hot concrete drenched in sunshowers. Summer melons, limeades and fresh-cut grass. It is a smooth soap, done up in cool pools of blue. The equally-blue Smooch! features silken clays and jojoba beads, and is ideal to layer with our Whipped! creme. Always much-loved, the Sidewalk Burn! appears this year in our new glass containers.
Returning soon, our well-received Cucumber & Chamomile toner! We hoped to include it with this release, but encountered some component delays and hope to release it later this season.
Our Staff Pick Smack! for April is Summersweet - A chic selection of Bluegrass, Raspberry Plum, Georgia Peach and light Vanilla Bean! Bookended by our Thai Twist Smack! which exploits that coconut-lemongrass schtick that was so popular a couple of seasons ago. And for good reason - it’s delishus. Ours puts our Coconut Milk, Lemon Meringue, and new Bluegrass single notes to good use, for a creamy/crisp spa moment.
A note about some technical difficulties… PayPal has been sending me notices for ages now that they will be down for maintenance on April 19th. This is, of course, planned for the middle of our April release. While PayPal works on their upgrades, I anticipate timed-out payment attempts, duplicate orders, and no end of fail. So, we will be taking the PayPal method offline entirely during April 19th (midnight to midnight, central time). Feel free to use PayPal for your order for the rest of today, and again on Friday (the 20th). Credit card payment methods will be available as usual!
Enjoy, you guys!
