Today's new fragrances were inspired by Gotham's best known villainous power couple, The Joker and Harley Quinn.
Mr. J's design was inspired by Joker's famous purple suit, green hair, and killer smile. The fragrance is a complex blend of mahogany, teak, cedar, oak, tobacco blossom, mandarin, caramel, rich vanilla, honey, coconut milk, rose, and cotton.
Fans of Stranger Things know Eleven, also known as El, isn't really a villain despite what she might think of herself. But she doesn't quite fit the role of a hero either, really more of an antihero slash scared little girl.
She's also the inspiration behind TELekinetic.
The first of this year's new fragrances took a bit of a throwback to a classic anime for its inspiration, the villain turned antihero, Lord Sesshomaru from Inuyasha.
Work has begun brainstorming and designing 2018's new nine, and we want to hear from you. Some of our customers expressed disappointment there currently aren't any villains in our fragrance line up, so 2018 will be the year of the villain, anti-hero, and those characters that straddle the line between hero and monster.
I could always just pack the list with my own favorites and call it a day, but I don't want to do that. You're the one I work for, after all, so I want to hear what you'd like to see.
Do you have a dastardly character you'd like to see in soap form or for whom you wish there was a fragrance? Comment down below or message me!
You know I have to have at least one new Doctor Who fragrance mixed in here somewhere. This year we're adding a new fragrance in honor of one of the series most iconic companions, Sarah Jane Smith.
Fateful Stow Away is a deep but spritely blend of marine, ozone, hyacinth, rose, heather, grape, peach, blackberry, plum, citrus, sage, tea, rosemary, fresh leafy greens, and musk.
The soaps are made of a blend of goat milk and glycerin soap colored with mineral oxide powders. The soaps and perfumes are free of dyes, detergents, phthalates, and parabens to be as gentle as possible.
The soaps and perfumes will become available through our store front as of Saturday.
Chris and I will be at the Contented Comfort table in the dealer's room at Con Kasterborous this weekend, so if you're in the Huntsville metro area, we encourage you to come to the convention. It's a perennial favorite of ours, and we'd love to see you there.
Here's a new one for Star Wars fans. Jen Erso stands out among other Star Wars leads because she isn't a Jedi or a political figure. Her father was involved with the Empire, sure, but Jen herself was just a regular woman trying to keep her head down and survive prior to being contacted by the rebels. Yet when presented the opportunity, she stood up and fought.
The design of Martyr's Hope pays homage to Jen, and the rest of Rogue One's, part in the rebellion, modeled after the disk of plans they stole. The fragrance is a rich, earthy blend of sea spray, daylily, lavender, watery florals, black amber, mahogany, teak, oak, cedar, nutmeg, and clove.
The soaps are a blend of our glycerin and goat milk soap recipes colored with mineral oxide powders. The soaps and solid perfumes are free of detergents, dyes, parabens, and phthalates to be as gentle as possible.
Soaps and perfumes will become available through our store front on Saturday, June 10.
This new scent is one that's been in the back of my mind for a long time, and it's another that's been requested a few times since we debuted Demon Hunter. Either the lineup was already packed, or the budget just wasn't there for the new mold needed: something just seemed to keep getting in the way until now.
Fallen of the Lord was inspired by Supernatural's Castiel. The scent is a fresh yet earthy blend of Sandalwood, vanilla bean, evergreen, crackling firewood, clean laundry, and musk.
The soaps are a blend of our usual goat milk and glycerin recipes colored with mineral oxide powders. Like all of our bath and body products, the soaps and perfumes are free of dyes, phthalates, parabens, and detergents to be as gentle as possible.
The soaps and solid perfumes will become available through our store front on Saturday, June 10.
Chris and I heard numerous requests for soaps inspired by these two parallel characters from Marvel and DC, so of course, we made a note and did our best to fulfill them.
Capt. Boy Scout is a light and fresh blend of marine, ozone, sandalwood, musk, orange, vanilla bean, and warm apple pie. The design and fragrance was inspired by Marvel's Captain America.
The soaps are a blend of our goat milk and glycerin recipes colored with mineral oxide powders. As you can tell from the picture above, a matching solid perfume will also be available.
Several people pointed out the store's lack of Marvel inspired fragrances at conventions over the past year. I hadn't noticed how very out of balance the superhero fragrances were until this was pointed out, so this year, I'm working to correct that some.
Today's introduction includes two of the three Marvel inspired scents coming to the store next month.
It's design season here at Contented Comfort! Planning for 2017's nine new permanent fragrances began before New Year's Day, but production never begins before the end of April. Well, it's here. Manufacturing began last week, and today I'm pleased to introduce two of our upcoming fragrances.
