New Look for Boxes and Website

I have not posted lately because I’ve been preoccupied with a major website update. I put the new files up tonight.

The picture at left shows the design for the front of the new perfume boxes that should arrive soon, hopefully Friday or early next week (the gold text and art will be gold foil). I just updated the website to incorporate the new logo imagery into the website.

A local artist drew the oak leaf image for the new Sonoma Scent Studio boxes and that image is now carried throughout the website. I reinforced our packaging colors of black, white, and gold on the site, and I tried to create a simple but elegant layout.

All the scent pages now have photos of the new bottles. The information on ingredients has been removed from the scent pages and collected into a group of pop-up notes reachable through links on each scent’s notes list and on an Ingredient page. We will keep adding more ingredients to the info list and more links to the notes lists. I made a number of other clean-ups and improvements as I went. For example, the fragrance page now has links to pop-up pictures of all the bottle options.

When I very first started Sonoma Scent Studio I used an oak image because I love our oaks and it is an appropriate image for Sonoma. I later switched to the jasmine because the oak image I had did not reduce well to the small sizes I needed. Now that I have an oak image that works, I’m moving back to the oak theme.

Hope you like the new website look! If you spot any glitches please let me know. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Bellatrix. Packaging components tend to come in white, black, silver, and gold, so that’s why you see a lot of color schemes that incorporate those colors.

  1. I always have loved the grand and graceful oaks we have here in Northern California (Live and Valley Oaks) and am glad to see them represented in your packaging as well as the images on the site! Wonderful!

    • Thanks Lizzy! Good to hear from a fellow oak lover. πŸ™‚ I think they become a part of your life when you grow up with them. We have evergreen Live and some deciduous types here too. Love them.

    • Thanks Mals! I would love for you to test the vintage inspired scent when the next mod is done. Now that the website is under control I’m getting back to that.

  2. Late to the party – but I’ve a good excuse. πŸ˜‰
    Excellent work in the transformation. Also glad you’ve opted for the simplicy in your choice of a logo.
