It's Almost Time for Spring...Spring Scents That Is!

We are very close to the arrival of the 2013 Spring and Summer Collection and of coarse I'm busy finishing everything up!  Release was schedualed for March 1st, but when I set the date I never looked at my calendar.  Since March 1st falls on a Friday and I tend to not be online as much on the weekend as during the week, I am pushing the release back a bit until March 4th.  This actually gives me a few days to post some sneak peeks of the new products. 

First up for today is a list of the returning scents from the 2012 Spring and Summer Collection

Creamy Coconut
Dreaming of Violets
Dragonfly Blue
Island Beauty
Olive Leaf & Lemon
She Sells Sea Shells
Summer Fling

Tomorrow I will share a list of the soaps coming March 4th.

Such a LOVEly Month

For many, February is the month of love.  Funny, before kids, my husband and I never really celebrated Valentine's Day.  We exchanged cards most of the time and maybe used it as an excuse to see a movie, but we never really put much emphasis on it.  Now we have our twin girls who are very nearly five years old and I have to say that Valentine's Day is almost their favorite holiday.  It just about outshines Christmas for them.  I think it is a funny little quirk. Cupid leaves them a note each, hanging by their bed and then he hides pink and red Hershey Kisses around the house for them to find.  They talk about it all year...seriously. 

So, for their love of the holiday that celebrates love, this month's Scents of the Month guessed it...inspired by all things Valentine's Day. 

Chocolate Rose Cream
Smooth vanilla beans infused with elegant rose essence and folded into a sweet cream all in fine gourmet chocolate.

Airy whisps of sugar, hints of ripe blackberry bushes, the mingling of pink candy lollipops and pure vanilla, with just a touch of sheer musk bring visions of the sweet innocence of that first crush on a summer day.

Just a Kiss
Hot summer nights on the boardwalk, at a carnival, or under a simple street light are always the perfect place for little stolen kisses and uncontrollable giggles. Outgoing and fun, a flirty blend of jasmine and orange peels, warm sandalwood, emerald ferns, shimmering white florals, bluebells, and sheer musk.

Sugar Rose
Inspired by a recipe for rose sugar cookies, Sugar Rose is delicate rosewater, moist raw sugar cane, crispy cookie crumbs with just a touch of wildflower honey and tropical fruit nectar.
These February Scents of the Month will be available (while supplies last) through February 28th and can be found in my main shop here or my Etsy shop here
