The crackle of autumn
A cotswold wood
It's coming...no doubt about that.
So....what do us soapers do now huh? Well....our cauldron's are at the ready and we shall be concocting all manner of autumnal scents to suit the falling of leaves and the run up to Halloween.
I have just ordered a shed load of autumn fragrance samples, which will be narrowed down once I've tried and tested my favourites.
You know I don't usually combine any scents other than pure essential oils, but lately I have found so many new and exciting fragrances that I HAVE to share them with you.
I shall be making combo's of fragrances mixed with absolutes and essential oils as well as some resionous material too.
I can't wait to decoct this stuff! Our kitchen will smell proper good.
I am being very selective with my pickings.
I have been making notes for new product names too and have come up with some corkers!
Some of the fragrances I shall be using will include honey, leather, incense, plum, amber, sandalwood, oakmoss along with nutmeg, coconut, cinnamon, leaves & figs. A little later will come scents such as mulled wine, black spruce, berries & winter warmers.
Combining these will be fun and I shall keep you all updated with all the new stuff, which will be landing in our Etsy & Big Cartel shops soon.
Keep 'em peeled...
Have I tempted you?
