Happy Thanksgiving!

Sending best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving to those who celebrate tomorrow!

In addition to my usual things to be thankful for, I am extremely thankful this year that our home is unharmed after the fires. I’m so grateful to the firefighters. We’ll be gathering at my parents house tomorrow, and for a while we were not sure that would happen this year. My older niece is a freshmen at UC Berkeley, and it will be fun to hear how her classes and dorm life are going. My younger niece started high school this year, and I’m also looking forward to hearing what is new for her.

We have been shipping lots of SSS orders daily since the reopening on Nov 16, but so far we are keeping up.

I’m always grateful to be part of the fragrance community and to share this journey with you. Many thanks to all of you, and may you have a wonderful holiday with friends and family!

Reopening Notes

I have put the cart up, but I am still low on Jour Ensoleillé and Yin & Ylang and will only have sample sizes in those until we can batch them. Bee’s Bliss samples and 5 ml are available now, and bottles will be available by early next week. Ambre Noir is out of stock likely until after the holidays.

Review of Bee’s Bliss and Reopening November 16


I plan to put the shopping cart buttons back up this Thursday, November 16.

Today, Cafleurebon posted a lovely review of the upcoming new release called Bee’s Bliss. Thanks so much for your beautiful writing, Ida! Cafleurebon is hosting a draw for a half ounce bottle of Bee’s Bliss, which officially launches in December, so follow the link and enter if you’d like a chance to win.

Update: Reopening and new scent coming

I am planning to open the SSS site for orders again approximately Nov 16.  I still have a lot of restocking to do, but that is my goal. I might not have every scent in stock by then.

I plan to release Bee’s Bliss, one of the two new scents that I have been working on, before the end of the year.  It has notes of bergamot, apricot, peach, orange blossom, jasmine, mimosa, lilac, heliotrope, iris, beeswax, honey, vetiver, green leaves, benzoin, amber, oakmoss, patchouli, and musk. It’s a sunny celebration of a summer garden in bloom.

I’ll post more updates as the opening gets closer! 🙂
