I was surprised, pleasantly so, but still incredibly surprised to find 2011's top scents were originals China Orange and Potions Master. I started out with a large number of conventional scents because I wasn't sure how I would do blending fragrances. Now that I have a base, I'm freer to experiment, meaning eight of this year's nine new fragrances will be originals.
So, let's take a look at what's coming up.
|5 oz. Bar Potions Master Goat Milk Soap|
This year will greatly expand the men's line with The 9th Doctor, The 10th Doctor, The 11th Doctor, Jacob, and Edward. (Working names only. They may be subject to change as I move from the drawing board to actual production.) And yes, they're inspired by Doctor Who and Twilight respectively.
You'll notice my geeky side will make a stronger appearance as time goes on. Can't help it.
The ladies aren't left out. Dreams of Earth, Pa'u Zhaan, and Atlantis will be coming for you, inspired by Battlestar Galactica, Farscape, and Stargate Atlantis respectively.
I'll also be introducing a line of Strawberries and Champagne soaps, soaks, and lotion later this weekend, just in time for Valentines Day.
I'm awaiting a shipment of new oils and base materials before beginning work on The 9th Doctor, The 10th Doctor, and Dreams of Earth. However, I hope to unveil those first new designs and fragrances by mid-February.
