We have made some changes to our shipping options. All US orders will now ship FEDEX GROUND ONLY. With so many mixed orders being placed for both the oil and alcohol based items we felt that it would be best to just have one option. This eliminates all confusion about the ground only option for the Signature Naturals.
Because of this we have also eliminated the SAMPLES ONLY option, as many were choosing this for regular orders and we cannot afford to ship expensive packages for the price of a small bubble bag.
SAMPLERS - We currently have Sampler Tins available for the Botanical Oil Parfums and the Street Collection Parfums. I will be adding a Sampler Tin for the Signature Naturals as well. Individual samples can still be ordered.
We also give away free samples with each regular order.
SIGNATURE NATURALS - This is the collection that is getting the biggest makeover. We have eliminated all high concentration 40/50% parfum absolutes and replaced them all with a lesser concentration Parfum Absolute Spray of 25/30% concentration. This is still a very high concentration, as industry standards are around 18/22% for an parfum. Many of our existing sprays are already at this concentration and only the lighter ones in the Eau de toilette have been increased.
I will be adding them to the collection online as they become available. Solstice was added today, and several others will be filtered over the weekend and will be online next week.
With the Signature Naturals getting all the attention I also decided to update the packaging a bit. The labeling will stay the same, but we will be replacing the white box with a silver (recyclable) tin.
My continued work on the new Alchemist Series (a mini series within the Signature Naturals Collection) will launch with two new Parfums at the end of summer. The first is Paracelsus, inspired by my childhood favorite crazy man and magician Paracelsus. A cocoa tinged Fougere/Chypre Rose/Iris Parfum and 12 Keys, an homage to the 12 Keys of Basil Valentine, an earthy green Fougere with Galbanum, Lavender, Fir Balsam Woods and botanical musk. I have been wearing both of these all summer and can't wait to introduce them to you. This will mark the first new Natural since Amun Re The Tears of Ra.
