In the lush gardens of Shangri-la, Adam and Eve are living in paradise. Everything is green and sumptuous; gardenias bloom everywhere and animals roam freely, and Adam and Eve revel in their simple, perfect lives.


After many days in paradise, Adam starts to grow a bit restless, wondering if there’s life outside of the garden; maybe there’s other things to know, to understand, to experience. Eve attempts to discourage his wandering mind and restless spirit. She knows they are supposed to stay in paradise and live out their days without worry or fear. Why invite trouble into their perfect world?


Adam begins leaving for long walks without her, returning and telling her he’s been talking to a serpent for hours. She assumes it’s a euphemism and tells him he’s gross and walks away to make herself some tea, rolling her eyes the whole way. But Adam is adamant that he’s met a serpent who can change their lives and teach them all the ways of the world they’ve been missing out on. Eve is less than thrilled, but pretends to mull his proposition over.


That night, the serpent slithered into the grove where they were sleeping, covered in a blanket of soft leaves and moss Eve had interwoven because she was a smart woman. The serpent wakes up Adam, and tells him if he takes a bite of this fruit, he’ll have all the knowledge man was supposed to have. Adam doesn’t hesitate, and takes four large bites. The serpent reminds him to slow down before he eats the whole damn thing, and he nudges Eve awake so she can have at least one bite.


Eve, however, was not someone who should be woken up unexpectedly. As Adam began to shake her shoulder to wake her up, she elbowed him directly in the nose, nearly breaking it and making Adam choke on the fruit he was still eating. Eve was about to apologize, until she groggily realized what was happening and told Adam to go to hell.

With his nose bleeding and his eyes turning black, Adam was suddenly fully aware of his nudity and his stupidity. The serpent slithered away, and Adam was compelled to follow him out of Shangri-la forever, one hand covering his genitals, the other attempting to stop the blood flowing from his nose.


Eve yawned, spread out on the ground, and fell back into a peaceful sleep. She lived the rest of her days happily alone, without a man trying to tell her what to do or attempting to wake her up in the morning ever again. True paradise.

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!
