Remember the feeling of being a child at Christmas? It’s not really a feeling that can be replicated or explained. The pure excitement of seeing all the presents under the tree; writing a letter with what you want to Santa; making sure that you were good enough to get all the little things your heart desired; getting an extended period of time off from school; everything decorated with twinkling lights; and a lot of hot cocoa.

In the days before you can legally drink alcohol, a good cup of hot cocoa is basically crack: the marshmallows, the whipped cream, the pure decadence of drinking a cup of liquid chocolate. What could be better than drinking a cup of cocoa in front of the warm lights of the Christmas tree with cartoons on in the background, knowing that you will imminently be opening presents? Nothing. There is nothing better … except for actually getting to open those presents.

The younger Johnson grandchildren were corralled to the “kids table” near the Christmas tree in the living room, barely eating their dinners but downing large mugs of hot cocoa, hyping themselves up over possible presents, getting more of a crazy sugar rush with every sip. Separated from the adults, they had no concept of any kind of conflict, upset, or passive-aggressive tendencies; all they could think about was presents. And that’s all kids should have to think about at Christmas. 

Each child had a chocolate mustache from their hot cocoa, but none of them cared. Who can be concerned with trivial things like a dirty face when there are presents to try and open using nothing but your eyes and the most concentration a child can muster while staring straight at the Christmas tree?

Before dessert was even served (normally their favorite part of any meal), the children had abandoned all pretense of eating and congregated around the tree, sorting out their presents into piles, shaking boxes, going to beg their cousin Chelsea to refill their cups of cocoa. Chelsea obliged, bringing them all refills of cocoa, and putting on the old family tape (because their grandparents had this thing called a “BCR,” or something, and none of the grandchildren knew what that was nor how to work it except for her) of recorded-from-TV Christmas cartoons and movies. 

A little bit into Charlie Brown Christmas, Uncle Steve came and joined them on the couch, licking a bowl of candy and then falling asleep. While it was definitely odd, the children hardly took notice except for the fact that no other adults came over, meaning it wasn’t time to open gifts yet. Dang.

Then Chelsea came over, and picked out her gifts and the gift for her boyfriend. PRESENT TIME! Sadly, they were wrong yet again; Chelsea was leaving and taking her gifts with her. How come she could take her things and open them and they were stuck here waiting for everyone else? A collective whine rose among the kids; they were out of cocoa and patience and needed to open presents now before a group meltdown happened. The remaining adults minus Aunt Linda finally came in and sat down. And now, finally, it was the moment they’d been waiting for all day, every day, for weeks: present time.


Scent notes: Rich hot cocoa with mountains of fluffy marshmallows and a touch of coconut cream pie, tempered with a touch of patchouli and incense

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!
