New Site is Up!

The new website is up! I hope you like it! I’m really happy with how it turned out. The format is prettier, we’ve added new content, and the site is now responsive to varying screen sizes and mobile devices.

The Home page has a new slide show full of photos that I have taken in the garden and in the lab. Other pages have new photos as well, and you’ll find lots of new content on the Ingredients page.

We’ve also linked the ingredients into all the scent description pages so you can read about ingredients with their pop-ups right from all the scent pages.

The old Fragrance Shop page has been split into three pages. Most of the scents are found on the Mixed Media page. The three 100% natural scents have moved to the Naturals page. And there’s a new page called Archive that holds the “by request scents” as well as anything that may be in short supply.

The Archive currently holds four scents. Two of these scents used to be the by request scents, Cameo and Lieu de Reves. I happen to have a little of both in stock so they are available in smaller sizes right now while stock lasts. Sienna Musk is in the archive because I can no longer get an ingredient for it, so it will be retired when I run out. I’m so sorry about that! Rose Volupte is in the archive because I may not always have it in stock, but I currently have no plans to discontinue it (I can still get all the ingredients).

On all three purchasing pages, you’ll find small pictures of the bottle sizes by the purchase buttons to help make it clear what the item looks like. There are multiple ways to get to the scent pages (from the navigation menu at the very top of the page, or from the navigation menus in the sidebars of the purchasing pages, or from the descriptive lists in the body of the purchasing pages).

I think the site is self-explanatory, but if you have any questions feel free to ask! 🙂

I should also say a huge thanks to Alexis and Eric at Bitclone in Portland, Oregon for their website wizardry. They are truly fabulous to work with!

    I love the new site so much! I just posted the link on MUA. Fantastic job, Laurie.

    It looks great! 🙂

    Have you decided to discontinue completely all the body products?

    • Laurie E says:

      Thanks, Undina. I’ve not had time to do the body creams, so I have put those on indefinite hold. Not many of the formulas work in oils, so I would have to rework any I want to use in lotions/creams (Fig Tree and Velvet Rose work in oil). Just not enough time right now to work on that. I’d love to do some oils eventually.

    Your updated site looks terrific, Laurie. I love the slide show of photos on your homepage. The flowers are spectacular and equally lovely are the photos of your bottles all lined up in rows, with the light shining in on them. They look elegant.

    Also, everything is easy to navigate and your explanations as to what to expect from your mixed media line, your naturals line (as well as your responses on your faq’s page) are easy to read and understand … there is a thoroughness to your verbiage, yet one doesn’t get bogged down with reading.

    Great update!

      Thank you, Suzanne! I had collected, over quite a few years, all those photos I used in the slide show. I didn’t realize how many photos I had until I started trying to choose which to use. I had taken the bottle shots when I had some wholesale orders going out and couldn’t resist shooting all those bottles together. I lined them up on my kitchen island and placed several gooseneck lamps to shine on them.

      Glad the website text sections seem helpful too. Your comments mean a lot to me because I admire your beautiful writing. 🙂
