A New Halloween Scent and a Contest!



The Scent:
Sinisterly sweet, warm, and sultry. Notes of smoked vanilla pods splashed with bourbon, amber resin smothered with caramelized sugar, pomegranate soaked orchid petals, and spicy pink peppercorns all wrapped in a thin veil of delicate musk.
Fans of It's My Party Bad Girl Edition will enjoy this darker, slightly less sweet scent.

This scent belongs to the Halloween Collection. The products from this collection are available until November 1st.  Find the entire collection here.

 

*****Story My Scent Contest*****

If you're a follower of Wylde Ivy, you probably know that I love to start my Halloween scents out with a story. Usually, I have the story in my head before I begin formulating the scents. Well, this scent was born a little differently. I had the name and the label art in my head first, and created the scent around that. As I sat staring at a blank monitor trying to compose the story, I decided to take the fun way out. I'm letting you write the story! The rules are simple. Really anything goes...short, long, silly, scary, avant garde, or conventional....as long as it is safe for general audiences. Submissions are due by October 29th. I will announce the winner on Halloween. The winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to Wylde Ivy. Please email your submission to soap [at] wyldeivy.com. Need some inspiration? Check out my other Halloween scents in my Etsy shop.

Mid Summer Updates and New Scents

It feels shocking to admit that we are truly halfway through our summer here.  Time flies when you're having fun, it's true.   I have so much exiting news, so many exciting releases, so much that I've been working on for so long....I simply don't know where to start!  I'm gushing.

Lets start out with the re-release of one of my most beloved and popular scents of all time...Raindancer!  I had to retire Raindancer a few years ago when two of the scent components that I used in the blend had been retired by the manufacturer.  All this time, I've been working to bring back Raindancer.  It is finally happening!  Reformulated slightly, but with all the same notes that you have fallen in love it, Raindancer is available again in all its sweet, rainy, beauty. 

Raindancer
There is a vision of a dark haired woman in blue, catching the raindrops in her upturned palms as she turns round and round. Graceful and carefree.
Notes of: watery lily, gardenia, meringue, ambered musk, vanilla, lily of the valley, summer rain, jasmine, sandalwood, and sweet wood musk. 

You can find Raindancer in my Etsy Shop 

This month's (and next month's too) Scents of the Month are all new....as in brand new, never before offered, never before smelled!  Two fantastic summer scents.  White Light is light and bouncy and perfect for summer days.  Night Heat is deep, rich, and so seductive and is perfect for sultry summer nights.  
White Light
Bright and effortless White Light is the flirty scent of careless summer days, sunglasses, and sundresses.
Notes of sweet island fruits, crisp mandarin peel, creamy coconut milk, lemon leaf, jasmine petals, and warm white musk infused with magnolia flowers.   

You can find White Light in my Etsy Shop

Night Heat 
So rich, so deep, so exotic.  You don't have to cool off  just because the sun goes down.  The rich but unassuming scent of amber musk, myrrh, dried vanilla, night blooming jasmine, aged sandalwood, and a kiss of clove bud.

You can find Night Heat in my Etsy Shop.


I have also added two brand new scents to my Men's Shop lineup.  I'm particular about all of my scents, but I"m specifically particular about my Men's Scents.  I find almost all commercially available men's scents to to be aggressive and strong for my nose.  I always strive to create scents that are unique and enticing....scents that just beg you to get closer when you smell them.

I'm thrilled in introduce:

Helix
Clean, sleek, and modern, and with just a touch of woodsy roughness.
Notes of clean ozone, rich oak, dried citrus peel, oak moss, black musk, and deep sandalwood.   

Issue 47  
Mysteriously enticing, rugged, and warm.  A perfect blending of spices, rare woods, and smooth sweet myrrh.  Rich and unique.
Notes of aged woods, cardamom, clove, sweet manderin, smooth frankincense, ancient amber, and rich myrrh resin. 


Both of these new men's scents can be found in my Etsy Shop


I can't forget that I have also restocked Little Shop in Salem soap and released Electric Berry soap.   To celberate the Electric Berry soap, I'm keeping the rest of the Electric Berry lineup in my shop through July!

Back and Gone Again

It seems like I just got back in the shop after my last minute trip two weeks ago and now I'm prepping to be closed down again.  I'll be out of the office from June 27 - July 7th.  I promised some goodies upon my return from my last closure, but I needed just a little bit more time to pull everything together.  So, be sure to be on the lookout for my newsletter when I reopen on the 7th, because the goodies are ready to go this time!  I'm restocking the Little Shop in Salem soap and I have another new soap ready to go.  There will be fresh Scents of the Month, and when I say fresh...I mean all new!  I'm also working on a return of a previously discontinued scent that I'm very excited about.  My current Scents of the Month (Nectar, Forgotten Rose, Neroli Creme, and Daydreamer) will be retired to make room for the new scents.

Sign up for my newsletter, you do not want to miss this news!  I will share the newsletter on facebook, but with all the recent facebook changes, they are severely limited the reach of business pages.  I'm going to be relying more on my blog and newsletter to keep in touch with my customers. 

Thanks again and enjoy your summer!

Getting Ready for the Spring Release

...but first today I have another fabulous winter scent on sale. 

The Scent:
The golden autumn sun enveloped her in its rich warm light. She laughed and then closed her eyes and breathed deeply. A breezed stirred at that moment and it loosened several of the crimson oak leaves above and sent them spinning wildly to the ground. They landed silently, bold colors on the emerald grass. She laughed again, twirled like the leaves, and outstretched her hands to the autumn sun.

Deep, golden, warmed with a touch of spice, and grounded by dry woods.

Notes of: Dry wood, Tonka bean, sandalwood, vanilla, beeswax, raw honey, teakwood, cinnamon, cardamom, amber, and cedar.
