Over the years I have created several essences that have remained exclusive to the physical location. Now that I will be closing the perfume boutique and moving my painting studio back to downtown Cincinnati, I am left with a decision to make about the studio exclusive scents. The ones that are most on my mind are the Acousticjus Street Collection oils. These are inexpensive oil roller ball parfums that were created for individuals looking for something nice, fun and not all that complicated. Whereas the bulk of the Soivohle line are either all natural or mostly natural with no scent having less than 85% natural ingredients the Street Collection oils are about 50/50. They do not contain any rare or costly absolutes or painstakingly thought out tinctures. The most complex of them can contain up to fifteen ingredients, while the lesser ones can have as little as three to five. Having said all that I am thinking more about all of the customers and repeat customers who have been purchasing these parfums over the years, and enjoy wearing them. I do not want to just toss them aside as they have garnered quite a local and loyal following. I will be going through the list and picking out the most popular ones to add to the online store. Things like Fig Black Tea, Dulce Crema, Egyptian Musk, Lilacs In Spring.. Some of the more earthy and masculine scents are lower on the list, but I do not want to leave them out just because they did not sell as well. So as I will not be adding them to the site until I have closed the boutique, I am going to post the titles here and let people take a look and see if anything pops out.
FIG BLACK TEA
SWEET LOVE AMBER
LILACS IN SPRING
AIR N SEA
SOFT LEMON RAIN
LEATHER N WOOD
I could of course just offer them all, and let the larger Soivohle/Acousticjus online audience work out the difference, and may decide in the end to do that. My main concern is space. I currently keep the formula bases and all of the bottles and packaging for all of the parfums at the studio. I need to make room for all this in my stock/work room.
It's crazy just how much stuff accumulates over a few years, and I have been adding to this collection scent by scent, but always working from the other location. Now thinking about moving the other half of Soivohle to the home base I am scrambling to figure out where I will store everything. I really need to be working on that now before I find myself just putting things in boxes to be thought about later, or knowing me as I do, forgetting all about them.
