Well, we rotate some (ok, a lot!) of our fragrances annually. Some of our suppliers stop making seasonal ingredients, and also we get bored and need space in the lab for new things.
The intention here is to have an imperfect, constantly added-to list. I'm copying and pasting directly off of our shop notes to get the first big batch up and running. You'll notice that it isn't formatted perfectly, and there will be misspellings here and there. I had to either let my perfectionism go, or never, ever do it. It is here, and it is perfectly imperfect!
I've also included all of the stories, because they make me smile! It's a very long document, so I suggest you use CTRL+F or another search method of your choice to skip through to what you're looking for. Enjoy!

Scent Notes: Butter pecan ice cream with tiny speckles of salt and crystalized honey
Crystal checked her watch. Late, again, she thought to herself, rolling her eyes so hard her mom would’ve joked that they’d get stuck that way if she could see Crystal doing it now. She was at her local bar, the Broken Heart, which was currently so busy she’d had to wedge herself into the far back corner at a table that barely fit just her in order to have any space at all. Continue reading here
Scent Notes: Butter pecan ice cream with tiny speckles of salt and crystalized honey
Jade looked through the window to the dreary, rainy outside world. Her long, artificially blonde hair with purple tips was pulled back into two high ponytails. Her phone was shuffling between her favorite emo and punk bands: MCR, ETID, TBS. It seemed only fitting that on this Valentine’s Day weekend she was in the grey world of her room, listening to music, alone, with only her cat and her black heart for company. Continue reading here
Scent notes: Salted dark chocolate truffles with spiced caramel cores, and a shot of whiskey
Kaylee stared at her reflection in the mirror across the bar, and took a sip of her drink. The Bleeding Heart was a Valentine’s special cocktail her local bar, the Broken Heart, made only during the week of February 14th, so she made sure to drink a lot of them while they were available. Sure, she lived in a small town on the outskirts of a larger city, but the rent was cheaper here, and she felt more safe than she ever had living in more metropolitan areas. Continue reading here
Scent notes: A fizzing glass of champagne filled with fresh strawberries
This little tavern had always been Emma’s favorite in her little hometown. Not that there were any others, but she still loved this one, even if it was a little bro-y. Jake, the bartender, was the owner’s son, and although he was probably a good 5-10 years younger than she was, there wasn’t anything wrong with a little flirting, right? He was bartending tonight. Lucky her. Continue reading here
Scent notes: Rich nougat of vanilla, tonka bean and heavy cream poured over marshmallows
Once upon a time, Snow White had reigned as queen for many years. She’d never been married, although she’d had a string of lovers, none had ever committed. What’s a queen without a king though?

“It’s really quite simple,” Captain Mansplain said. “I found your secret lair in the easiest way: you sent me a note to come here to, I believe you said, ‘Meet my doom.’” He made exaggerated air quotes as he said it, because of course he did. “Although I don’t believe you really meant that, and let me explain why.”
“No, that’s exactly what I--” Feminista started to say.
Continue reading here
Scent notes: a cauldron full of a dark, bubbling, poisonous liquid with a distinct animal musk note wafting from the fumes and simmering bubbles, oudh wood, spicy dragon’s blood.
Captain Mansplain awoke in a dungeon he didn’t recognize, with a splitting headache. “This is definitely not my own personal dungeon, where I have absolutely never awoken after a rowdy night with a woman I most sincerely did not pay for who robbed me and locked me in my own dungeon. I’d recognize that place. This dungeon is most sincerely a foreign dungeon. Probably that rotten Feminista’s place. Ugh.”

Scent notes: a freshly baked vanilla cupcake topped with buttercream, and marzipan, sprinkled with burnt sugar and a small drizzle of honey, left on the countertop with a lovely note telling you to eat it, and you have no reason at all to suspect that it’s poisoned except for that slightly faint hint of wormwood coming through the sweetness but hey, someone needs to eat this delicious cupcake right? There’s no way this could end poorly.
Captain Mansplain found himself, once again, in a large room in Feminista’s evil hideout. The room was empty except for a large compressed air pipe about midway up the wall behind him. He suspected cameras must be mounted somewhere in the ceiling, although he didn’t see any.
Continue reading here
Scent notes: Cedar logs burning in the great outdoors, smoky patchouli, Balsam of Peru (fancy, we know), a lavender grove on a perfect spring day, a sprinkle of anise.
Captain Mansplain laid on his back on the floor of the empty room, trapped in Feminista’s evil hideout. Oh, the humanity. Maybe he really had come to this terrible place to die. Maybe this is what happens when you make yourself a superhero. Perhaps the world doesn’t *need* a Captain Mansplain. Maybe he really is a bad superhero.
Continue reading here
Scent notes: a bottle of expensive Merlot, crisp Anjou pear, a ripe Valencia orange, tart lemon, juicy kumquat. Basically, really delicious sangria.
Captain Mansplain awoke, not for the first time, in Feminista’s secret island lair. Only this time, he was tied to a post that was hanging from the ceiling in a large room, completely unable to move. His mouth was shut with duct tape, and he could tell that the side of his face was bruised and aching. The metal floor felt hot beneath his feet, and it appeared that the floor could slide apart, like so many evil villain’s lair floors are wont to do. (Who makes slidable floors? He wondered to himself. Is that a good business to get into? Maybe I should try that. I wonder if I could wear a cape on the job?) He would have expressed his thoughts aloud, and indeed he was trying to, but the duct tape made it impossible to talk, so he was mostly chewing on it.

Scent Notes: Hot metal, campfires in the woods and old books, flannel shirts and a touch of coriander

Seems Legit is the dark side of All Hallows' Eve; it's the monster under the bridge you have to walk on your way home. It senses your fear and lets out a low, grumbly laugh that sends chills down your spine. Just keep moving, you'll be okay, don't slow down; now you can smell your own fear, mixed with mud and a tinge of a metallic note. Blood? Is that blood? Keep walking, faster now, you can hear it coming closer; you're almost off the bridge, you can see your house, so close! A few more steps, that's all you need to get to safety and security. As you step off the bridge, something rushes past: a car, that's all it was, a car behind you on the bridge. You nearly laugh at your anxiety when you hear the low laugh you heard on the bridge, but closer, and louder, and you sprint the rest of the way home, vowing never to walk across that bridge ever again. Pairs well with her sister scent, Free Candy.
Scent notes: rotten river mud, a few drops of blood, a swirl of tobacco smoke, sweet pumpkin pie, candy corn, tears.

Scent Notes: Animalistic musk and rot, camphor, hot tar and salty tears. And Pumpkin Spice.
Free Candy is the lighthearted, fun, candy-centric, light side of Halloween, where kids roam their neighborhoods as the sun goes down, kicking through fallen leaves on the hunt for as much candy as they can fit in their plastic pumpkins, or pillowcases, or straight into their mouths, then head home to watch scary movies while the sugar wears off until they eventually pass out and their parents can raid their candy stashes for their favorites and stealthily eat a few bars without the kids knowing. Such simple, sweet times. Pairs well with her sister scent, Seems Legit.
Scent Notes: A pillowcase full of candy from the rich neighborhood in town (you know the one, hands out full-size and king-size candy bars like they’re Jay-Z and money ain’t a thing) clutched in the happy fists of laughing children dressed as ghosts and vampires

Winter is always a tough time for most people, as the days are cold, dreary, and most of all, dark. Lack of sun impacts us all more than we realize. Our mental health can take a serious hit, and everyday challenges can feel insurmountable. Everything is hard. Maybe it’s not actually winter, either; maybe you’re just going through a rough patch of life where nothing seems to be working out, and you are, understandably, frustrated. No matter what’s going on, and no matter how bad things seem, you have to remember that it’s always darkest before dawn. The light is coming, even if that seems impossible right now. Trust us. The light is on its way, and better, brighter times are just ahead. Don’t give up hope!

A delicious, warm pie. With melty vanilla ice cream and spices. Damn, math is awesome.
1-Up is our ode to classic video games and the 8-bit world we kind of wish we could inhabit. Those were simpler times, and simpler games: you could travel through tubes and jump and land on enemies to kill them; if you were shooting anything, it was a cloud or a duck (with a bright orange gun!); and a broken heart could be fixed with a potion you acquired from some random guy selling things in a hut in the middle of nowhere. Think of this scent as that magic potion, or in adult terms, a grapefruit bellini: sharp citrus, delicious bubbly, with a hint of sugar. Plus extra sweetness from pumpkin and Bartlett pair, with a tiny bit of lavender for a nice bit of floral. Because if we can’t actually live in an 8-bit world, we can drink until we feel like we do.
