And here it is! The results are in!

First of all, I want to thank everyone who entered. I did NOT expect the turnout I got. Not at all. I had so much fun reading through all your suggestions. I've got some brilliant people reading this blog! There were so many I wanted to do, and had a terrible time choosing. Some I had my heart set on were already taken by other perfumers or by the Big Daddy of perfumers (wink).

So I will announce the drawing winners and then move on to what everyone can expect for this season.

Aww...... look at all you guys in my cupcake mixing bowl :-)

Runners up. You guys can choose any full size perfume, either from the Halloween collection when it comes out or current stock. 


AND THE WINNER IS............................!!!!

You win a gift set from the Halloween collection (which I'll explain below). :-)

So what can you expect from TMTM this Halloween? 

GEIST will make its appearance again. The GEIST line will feature four different scents, each with corresponding lotion, vegan bath salts, lip balm and sugar scrub. I'm extremely excited about these (and they're already formulated and ready to go)!! Everything can be purchased separately or as a gift set, which comes packaged in a chocolate brown gable box, tied with black ribbon, and my signature gold seal. 

Oh, I guess you probably want to know what the new "inspired" perfumes will be this year, huh?

:::dramatic music:::


Romero
Thorn (for Damien)
Quoth the Raven
Little Drop of Poison
We All Float Down Here


It took me forever to decide (well, except Romero - ha ha), so formulation is about halfway finished. I will announce the scent descriptions at the same time I announce the GEIST scent descriptions.

I am holding a special pre-Halloween sale for Saucy Jack and The Saw is Family. I have a VERY limited supply of fragrance components for both of these, so I will make as many bottles as possible and place them for sale THIS SUNDAY @ 4PM PST - MIDNIGHT in the Etsy shop. I really don't like doing it this way, but Halloween is going to be pretty intense this year, and I wanted to get these out of the way before listing all the seasonal stuff. Should I have any bottles left after the pre-sale, they will return to the vault (aka my perfume cabinet - ha ha) and I will list them with the rest of Halloween until they're gone. I feel very sad, because these will never return, and The Saw is Family is one of my personal favorites EVER. 

I think that's all the news. If you know anyone who's interested in the pre-sale, do let them know!!!

BOO!!!!!
