The holidays are over and it's time to get back to work. I have been thinking a lot about what I want to do next. I have a few different ideas that have been in the works since last Spring but I am still having trouble finding an end point. I am inclined to complete these fragrances before I begin new ones.
The main thorn in my side is Leather/Violet. It still doesn't feel complete to me. I've sold quite a few bottles and keep getting requests for more but it just doesn't feel right to me yet. I continue to stress over the leather part of the equation. I know how I want it to smell but I haven't been able to make it happen yet. People seem to really like what I've done with it so far so I should probably just take the hint and be done with it.
I am also working with fennel. And ylang ylang. Together. It doesn't seem like those two would blend well with one another but they really do. At least on me. I get tons of compliments when I wear this combo so I'm working on one for a Spring or Summer release. This will be a pure essential oil blend, yay!
Valens will be released February 1st. It was supposed to be the December release but I got off track with Forêt and Erastus. I'm not going to give the ingredients now but I will soon. Valens is a Latin mans name meaning strength or valor. I'm into super old names that you never hear anymore. It's a faze I'm going through at the moment.
