Cheeky Gremlin

Scent Notes: Sweet, crisp apples with ginger and lemongrass on a bed of freshly fallen autumn leaves.

Amanda heaved a gigantic sigh. She’d just made it home after a long day at work to discover that her house was an absolute wreck, once again. She walked over the detritus of torn pillows, shredded toilet paper, and who knew what else. The bag of groceries was set on top of the refrigerator temporarily, where the gremlin couldn’t reach it. “Show yourself, you monster!” she yelled. Nothing happened. Amanda set to work cleaning up the mess. Just as she finished, she heard a mighty crash from the kitchen. She darted in to find the bag knocked cleanly from the top of the fridge. No sign of the gremlin except for the chaos he’d left behind. Thankfully, nothing was damaged, as she’d learned a long time ago not to buy anything in glass containers at the store, because it would wind up shattered on the floor moments after she got home. 

Putting away the groceries, she muttered to herself. “Why do I put up with this? A gremlin lives here. He’s been here nearly the whole time I’ve been here, yet I just let myself live like this. Why?” She made a simple dinner and sat on the couch to eat and binge watch a new TV show she was obsessed with. Halfway through the first episode, she set the plate on her coffee table and used the bathroom. She came back to a completely cleaned plate, which also happened to be on the ground. This time, she saw the gremlin darting back into the bathroom. “Fine, you win,” she announced, putting the plate into the sink and grabbing a bag of chips. “I’m done, I give up, the place is yours!” She walked into her bedroom, shut the door, and restarted the show while snuggling the bag of chips. That’s how she fell asleep a few hours later.

Like clockwork, at 3AM, the low howl started outside her door, followed by the sounds of the gremlin running berserk. It was a typical occurrence, one that she usually slept through with ease. But tonight, it was loud enough to be heard over the sound of her box fan, which she’d originally purchased to drown out the incessant nighttime noise. And then the door scratching started. She sighed and woke up a little more. She turned off the TV, put the chips on her nightstand, and opened the door. The gremlin flew in and straight onto the bed, where it began to purr and make little biscuits with the blanket. She closed the door and got back into bed, snuggling the gremlin close and enjoying his warm fur and sweet biscuit-making. “What a little cheeky, butthead gremlin you are,” she said, as the little baby just purred and snuggled in. This was the reason she put up with his antics. This was the reason she’d always have a little gremlin in her life. And they both drifted off into sweet, contented sleep.

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 ( 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 We’re happy to answer any questions you may have!
