Okay, I know it's a little later than usual, but the winter holiday soaps and winter seasonal soaps are back! That means Pumpkin Maple Crunch, Grandma's Kitchen, Holiday Goodies, Cinnamon Honey, and Peppermint Cream varieties are back in stock and on sale now.
Can't remember what these specials look or smell like? Well, let's take a look.
Pumpkin Maple Crunch
With Thanksgiving tomorrow, the holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means. Our annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale is coming up!
All bath and body products in stock will be marked down 50% off the usual price, and all books will be marked down 20% off the usual price from 6 a.m. Friday, November 24 until 6 p.m. Monday, November 27.
Our usual shipping rate applies, but since we ship via priority flat rate, padded envelopes, you can purchase up to two pounds of products for the same shipping costs! That makes now the perfect time to stock up on stocking stuffers for the whole family, all from the comfort of your home.
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.
Spring is right around the corner, and you know what that means. Our spring seasonal fragrances, April Showers and Strawberry Picking are back!
April Showers is a bright and airy blend of marine, ozone, lily of the valley, lavender, juniper, rose, and fresh soil. Each bar is just a bit different from each of the others, and their intricate, bright design make them perfect for adding a touch of spring to your home decor.
This blend of strawberries, dirt, honey, citrus, peach, rose, jasmine, and lily will have you longing to find the nearest farm that hosts strawberry picking.
It's the time of year where I begin brainstorming the new permanent fragrances and designs for debut at Con Kasterborous in June.
Each year, we introduce nine new fragrances to be added to our permanent collection. Last year was an exception when a last minute request was just too good to push into the next line. So far, I have a couple solid ideas, but I want to hear from you. Everything we do here at Contented Comfort is to try to help make your life more contented, comfortable, and just all around awesome, after all, so your input is key!
What are some characters, series, or general concepts you would like to see rendered in soap? Do you have a specific fragrance idea you'd love to try? Leave a comment below or contact me directly to leave your request, and I'll see what I can do to bring them to life.
