High Strangeness

The library is exquisite. Truly, most people do not grow up in a grand mansion, complete with an oversized library just full of books, old manuscripts, and two fireplaces. Everything is made of exquisitely polished wood, and there’s always fires burning in both fireplaces, even in the middle of summer, yet the room is never too warm. Awfully drafty, these old houses. Windows sometimes just blow right open, lace curtains billowing in the random, intense breezes that rush through the room. Every chair is upholstered in velvet; there’s a settee and an oversized chaise lounge for long, decadent reading sessions. It’s one of the few rooms in the house that never stops smelling of high quality cigars, although neither you nor your parents smoke. There’s also a distinct note of coffee, probably from some old, stained books that were much-loved and much-read and, therefore, likely much-spilled-upon-with-caffeinated-beverages. And, like the rest of the house, it smells like money. Old money. Runs deep in the veins and the pockets money. “My uncle Ralph only read Ayn Rand” kind of money.

While it creeped you out a bit growing up, when you come home to visit now, it’s your favorite part of the house. It’s absolutely private, and there are plush blankets to wrap around yourself while you read books nobody has touched since… well, since the last time you were home, most likely. Books bound in leather, soft cloth that tears as you hold it, or in rich, brocaded velvet. It’s an absolute and total pleasure to spend at least one day in that library, ignoring the world and drinking too much coffee in divine, delicious solitude, with nothing but books for comfort. That is, until the window dramatically opens, throwing the curtain wide. “Uncle Ralph, seriously, I tell you this every time I’m home: I’m not going to read any more Ayn Rand. I read one book and was a total asshole to everyone for two weeks; I’m not doing it again. Although it does explain your life a lot more.” The window shuts again with an air of superiority and what sounds like a “harrumph!” The distinct scent of ancient currency wafts into your nose. Oh, Uncle Ralph. You ring the bell for the maid, who promptly brings in a tray of coffee and snacks. Time to continue ignoring the rest of the world and devouring the contents of this library (and these snacks) for as long as humanly possible.

Scent notes: A rich, sticky base of vanilla absolute, tobacco absolute, cocoa absolute, and coffee absolute. Sweet benzoin resin, guiac wood and mysore sandalwood oils swirl with black oud wood, honey, and a whisper of dark cherries

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!
