Disclaimer: These are fictional stories for a real line of scents, based on the sales tactics of years ago, when products claimed to do everything imaginable. None of our scents are anything but that: scents. They do not, in any way, do anything other than smell good. So please do not try to drink them or think that they are actually miracle cures. They're just perfume!

It’s the voice you hear first. “Gather round! Gather round! Come one, come all, come and see Dr. Fantastic’s Wonderment Emporium!” You cut down the side street, and down another, following the voice, until you find yourself walking down a narrow alley. Skeptical and scared, you round a blind corner and find yourself dazzled by the display. On the cobblestone street is a makeshift stage and several large carriages stuffed with glass bottles of various sizes. A small boy is yelling in the street, drumming up a crowd. It’s his voice you followed. “The show is about to begin!” he shouts, grabbing the hand of a random woman walking down the street and dragging her to the stage. “You need this, I promise.” The boy runs and knocks on a carriage door, and a middle aged man bursts out, complete with cape and an eccentric top hat. “I am Dr. Fantastic!” he yells to the modest crowd, walking to the stage. “And I have the cure for what ails you! Whatever is wrong, my Serpent’s Brew will cure it.” He nods assuringly, then points to a random woman in the crowd. “You, miss. What’s bothering you today?” The woman looks flustered and gazes at the ground. She mumbles something incoherent. “Speak up, miss. I promise, whatever it is, Dr. Fantastic will cure you.” This time, when she speaks, her voice rings out clear. “I get the worst headaches, and my husband has blisters and warts on his hands and feet from all his hard labor. Our children are unruly, and I can’t seem to keep our floors clean.” She’s still looking at the ground, hands clasped in front of her. Dr. Fantastic walks into the crowd, takes her hand, and brings her onstage. “Do you have a headache now?” he asks her, gently. She nods. The little boy appears out of nowhere with a large brown bottle labeled SERPENT’S BREW. “Here, miss, take a swig. If your headache isn’t gone instantly, you can run me out of town.” The crowd eyes them both skeptically. Will it work? What does it taste like? She takes the bottle, gives him a sideways glance, pops the top, and takes a tentative sip. A second later, she takes a large chug. She pulls the bottle away, her eyes aglow. “Wow! My headache is gone, and I feel amazing! Plus, that tastes delicious! Will it help with my other problems?” she asks, clearly about to buy several bottles. “Yes, indeed! It cures headaches, warts, blisters, popcorn lung, unruly children, dirty floors, grease burns, hangnails, split ends, cottonmouth, dry skin, toothaches, swollen tonsils, and you can wear it as a perfume! The best part is: a bottle is only $2!” “Only $2?! I’ll take five bottles!” she says. At this point, the crowd has gone crazy, clamoring for a bottle. You start to walk away, knowing that while you’d love a bottle, you’re skeptical, and you don’t have $2 anyway. You feel a tug at your arm, and turn to see the small boy, who hands you a bottle. “On the house, this time,” he says with a wink. Dr. Fantastic is too busy with his paying customers to see, so you thank the boy and hustle back to your house, excited to clean your floors and try your new perfume.

 

Scent notes: fresh bamboo, sweet yuzu, an old, dusty library, exotic spices, smoky nag champa, ylang ylang.

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!
