Scent Notes: Peppermint swirls in warm vanilla milk with cardamom. Candle wax, cedar, and lush, green galbanum.

Rose and her merry band of brigands sailed northward for several weeks, heading into increasingly colder temperatures. She knew their destination was close when night closed in fast, and didn’t stop for several days. The collective breath of the crew hung about the entire ship, coating everything in a semi-frozen mist. There’s no way it was actually possible, but to Rose, this frigid air always smelled like peppermint, and she relished breathing in the minty freshness that seemed to permeate everything.

They could just make out lights from other ships in the distance, all floating to the same destination: Penzance, the secret northern island just for pirates. Every five years, pirates showed up to Penzance in the dead of winter to tell tales, drink, and attempt to rob each other. You know, pirate stuff. Rose and her crew were one of the last ships to make it to Penzance this time around. This would be her fourth visit to the island; somehow, more than twenty years had passed in her pirate’s life. It seemed absolutely, positively inconceivable.

As the crew took care of the ship, Rose dashed down the plank and across the land, nearly falling several times. She might be great at sea, but her land legs weren’t as steady; plus, you know, ice. She was in the frozen tundra after all! The castle loomed ahead; she could smell the wax from the hundreds of lit candles already. She walked straight into the main hall, and was greeted to the sounds and sights of a pirate party: rum, mead, an air of jocularity, missing limbs, fistfights…. Rose took a deep breath, filling her lungs with the scent of cedar from the giant fireplace burning at the back wall, and smiled. It felt great to be home.

Grabbing a pint off a nearby table, Rose walked to the back of the hall, yelling happy profanities at friends as she passed them, not deterred from her target. She knew her ex would be in the back corner, surrounded by a gaggle of hangers-on. Of course, Rose was not wrong. The crowd had just burst into a peal of laughter when Rose shouted over them, “Why, hello Misty!”

The small crowd parted, and there, in the center, was her beautiful ex-girlfriend, Misty Morning. Misty’s hair was intricately plaited, and her matching silk pants and jacket were her favorite shade of sky blue. She smelled like pure vanilla: absolutely delicious. Rose quickly grabbed Misty by the arm and led her through the throng to a corner where they could talk privately. “Have you been here long?” Rose asked Misty innocently. Misty smiled. “Yes, about three years, actually.” Rose looked guilty, and was about to start apologizing when Misty cut her off. “I know you feel bad, and we can talk about it later, but I heard something interesting when I arrived a few hours ago, and I think you should know about this, too.” Rose raised her eyebrows in alarm.

Misty nodded. “Yup, as he’s always threatened to do, I heard Deadbeat is finally making his way to the quote unquote exotic Far East.” She rolled her eyes. “You know I’ve always hated when white people decide to exoticize my family and my history because they think everyone has, like, a pet dragon who smokes opium in a grove of cherry blossoms or some shit. Whatever. Anyway, the point is: we can reclaim these stereotypes, AND the bounty he’s planning to steal.” A mysterious gleam came into Misty’s eyes; it always drove Rose crazy when Misty looked at her that way. “So, are you coming with me to the east, Miss Compass?” Rose grinned. “Oh, absolutely.”

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!
