Click here to read the first story, Tears of My Enemies.

After a successful raid on the band of outlaws, Barbardia and her expanded brigade were heading back to their city. Of course, it wasn’t an actual city; it was pieced together from pieces of the downfall of society and all kinds of scavenged building materials. It was a hodgepodge of people and stuff that resembled more of a shantytown, but it was a functioning place to live in a world post traditional-societal collapse, and everyone who lived there was glad to have a safe place to live. Barbardia took good care of all who came to live under her, whether they came willingly or by force. The new additions to the group were grumbling, but she knew they’d come around eventually. They always did, especially since she adhered to a strict moral code and would keep them fed and sheltered no matter how much they complained about being captured. 

Time passed; life went on. As she had predicted, the band of outlaws had adapted just fine, and were living productive, helpful lives without issue. Some were even training to join in Barbardia’s brigade. That is, all except one. His name was Korvast, and he was a right pain in the ass. He was the outlaw who’d called her a “barbarian bitch,” and yet she had still shown him mercy and accepted him into the fold to come and live in her city. But Korvast just couldn’t help himself. He kept starting fights with anyone who dared to even look at him strangely as he wandered the city. He’d stolen from other people multiple times; once, allegedly, from a child who was carrying water (the most precious resource) back to her family. Xylon kept Barbardia up to date on his antics, as Xylon kept an extremely close watch on Korvast. She hadn’t even ordered him to do so; he took the job upon himself. From the rumors she’d heard, Korvast kept an eye on Xylon right back, and as of late, it seems as if Korvast’s antics had diminished. 

Barbardia was sitting at her desk in her private room, waiting for Xylon to come in and do her hair, when the door burst open. It was, indeed, Xylon, but he wasn’t alone. “Korvast! I wasn’t expecting to see you tonight, especially as I’ve heard rumors of some bad behavior on your part.” Korvast looked sheepish, and kept his gaze on the floor. Xylon nudged him forward, though he was so big, it looked more like a shove. “It’s okay, sweetheart. Tell her.” Korvast looked up at Barbardia, locked eyes with her … and mumbled something unintelligible. Barbardia laughed. “Okay, listen, you spoke up to me before with no problem when we were overtaking your little outlaw gang. Pretend that’s what’s happening now. Use your voice, please.” Xylon leaned over and mumbled into Korvast’s ear, tenderly. 

Korvast stood up straight. “I am very sorry for the way I’ve been behaving since you captured us,” he said, his voice finally loud and clear. Barbardia nodded her head. “Your apology is accepted. But do you know why you’ve been behaving this way, so that we can make sure it doesn’t happen in the future?” Xylon jumped in. “Well, see, I think he’s been a little confused and lonely, so he acted out. I’m offering to personally train him as a warrior, so he can learn our morals and code of ethics and also beef up his bod a bit because he keeps losing these fights he’s picking and it’s a little sad. We want good, strong people with solid morals here, right, Barbs?” 

Barbardia eyed them both, and said quietly, “Oh my god, you’re totally in love!” Xylon and Korvast looked at each other and blushed. “THIS IS THE CUTEST THING EVERRRRR!” Barbardia yelled, grabbing the three of them in a group bear hug which didn’t last long because they nearly crushed the normal-sized Korvast between their two extremely muscular bodies. “Oh, sorry about that,” Barbardia said as she pulled away. “We’ll work on that.” Korvast was now running a stream of conscious apologetic diatribe from his mouth apologizing for acting crudely, and he’ll make personal amends to everyone he wronged, and he was going to improve himself as a human and as a partner to Xylon, which made Barbardia tear up. “It’s okay, it’s okay, we’re all human and make mistakes,” she said, running her arm along his shoulder to soothe him. “Just be glad I only collect the tears of my enemies, and not the blood of my enemies.”

Scent Notes: Drops of blood on warm leather, wisps of smoke, hot metal, and a freshly picked, juicy blood orange.

Didn’t love a scent? Not a fan of that body product? Not a problem, as we here at Sucreabeille have an Extremely Generous Return Policy!

We’re committed to making the returns process simple and easy for you.

But first, a few things to note:

We really encourage you to wait to make a return until at least two weeks after the receipt of your order. Why? As indie perfume makers, we don’t use stabilizers in our blends like mass perfume manufacturers. That means that your scents might undergo the perfume equivalent of bottle shock in transportation, due to extreme fluctuations in temperature, aggressive package handling (tee hee), etc.

You can absolutely sniff your scents when they first arrive, but note that a resting period of at least a few days can make a world of difference in how a scent smells.

Store them in a cool, dry place for a little while and see how they can change. But, if you don't want to wait that long, we understand!

Returns must be initiated within 60 days of purchase.

There must be at least 75% of the product left in the container for us to accept the return.

If you don’t love a scent but would rather rehome it than return it, or swap it for something you know you love, we have an awesome swap/sell thread on our Facebook group (and it’s for all indie perfume companies, not just Suc). You can join our group here (https://facebook.com/groups/sucreabeille) and then search for “swap/sell” within the group. We post a new swap thread each month, sometimes two!

Sucreabeille reserves the right to limit returns if we have reason to suspect misuse of our Extremely Generous Return Policy (such as, but not limited to, excessive returns, reseller activity, or fraud).Items from the Indie Marketplace are eligible for return.

Items purchased from other retailers, dealers, or resellers and not directly from Sucreabeille are not eligible for return, refund, or exchange.

If you used Sugar Points on your original purchase, we will not be able to refund those to your account. Instead, we will give you a shop credit. (It's basically the same thing, it just won't be found under your Sugar Points.).Here's how it works: Send us an email with a note about what you’d like to return, and we’ll send you a shipping label. Send back the product according to the terms above. Once we receive it and make sure it’s eligible, we’ll issue you a shop credit or a refund to your original form of payment in the amount of the product plus your original shipping charge. We must receive the product before we can issue your credit or refund.

If you need help, send an email to shopsucreabeille@gmail.com. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have!
