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.
