All about scents that go on holiday

Yes….you read my title correctly, some of my scents actually gone on holiday as they too need a little rest from time to time. ?

So you may be wondering why I actually do put scents on holiday, this is to keep my scent list rotated and changed. Now if I constantly did the same scents month after month, year after year, you’d get bored right? Well I know I would as change is good and updating the scent list and keeping it pretty seasonal too is a perfect way to do it.

So this year was the start of me putting scents on holiday and some scents I’ve completely ended as it’s time for change. Now there’s reasons why I might put some on holiday and end some. Holiday ones tend to be seasonal so for example, Snow Fairies has gone on holiday as I find this more of a autumn/winter scent as it reminds me of Christmas. Now I know it doesn’t smell of Christmas but it’s got the name snow in it so I’ve classed it as an autumn/winter scent, so you’ll see this come back towards the end of September, beginning of October up until Christmas and then it’ll go on holiday again. Things like fruity scents, you’ll see many of these go on holiday after the summer, I’ll keep one or 2 on my scent list as we all love a bit of fruity scents and I’ll always make sure I have at least one scent from each scent category.

Now my biggest challenge is to get my perfumes & aftershaves list down…..it’s so hard as there’s so many I love and I want to keep them all, but I do need to let some go on holiday, but I hate picking sometimes. Sometimes I find it easy to pick, but this category is one of my most favourites and many scents in this one are scents I’ve had specially made up in the lab which are bespoke to me. I’m not saying you can’t buy them else where, but when I have a bespoke scent made up in the lab they don’t use that same formula for anyone else as I’ve paid to have this made for me. I usually send in the scent tones for what I want and then they work their magic and then I work mine and make it into amazing scented wax.

Now many of my customers ask if I have a list of what’s gone on holiday or what’s ended, unfortunately I don’t put a list together, I often mention in my group if a scents going on holiday, but I don’t tend to say when a scents coming to an end unless I’ve lots of it that I want to sell off. I often get messages when customers know it’s going on holiday saying it’s their favourite scent and I understand you all have favourite scents as I do too and I sometimes end the ones I love, but having a change is good and if you were to constantly buy the same scents every time eventually you’d get bored of it or become nose blind. Change is good and I’ve found since putting scents on holiday it’s meant customers have tried other scents they may have not been interested in before and then fallen in love with them.

 

Now as you all know I’m a one man….well woman band! All waxes are handmade by just me, same as my reed diffusers, room sprays, pillow mists, car sprays and pet bed sprays. Now if I had 100 scents on my list there’s no way I’d be able to keep up making them all and to keep stock levels on the website, it’s hard enough now and I think I’ve got around 30 scents on my list at the moment which is still a little too high. I find if there’s too much choice customers find it much harder pick what to buy and as they say……less is more. Now I’m not one of these big massive wax companies, we know the ones the ones that have been around for donkeys years who have massive factories who mass produce and have probably 1000’s of staff, nothing had poured as they have big industrial machines to do it all for them, now they can keep up with having 100’s of scents on their list as they are mass produced, but when you’re a small business like myself who actually hand pours every single scent that you melt then it’s not possible. I’d rather have a smaller scent list and take longer to stock my shelves than have a mass produced line of machine poured wax or wax that’s not made with any love whatsoever. You know every single scent is poured by me and poured with love and to me that’s much better than having a to big a range of scents to pick from.

If you want to know when scents are going on holiday be sure to be apart of my Little Melts With Love was group, as I often announce in their when they are going on holiday and sometimes when I post on my business page I may say it’s the last chance to grab this scent before it goes on holiday. Now I don’t always say how long the holidays for, sometimes it might just be 6 weeks, 6 months or even a year it all depends on what scent it is.

So I hope this explains a little bit more about scents coming and going and that if your favourites gone off the website why not try something that’s out of your comfort zone as you might just be pleasantly surprised!

I’ll see you next Monday, same time, same place!

 

Have a sparkly evening and……happy melting! ❤️?

    I always have a little strop when fragrances go on holiday, then stock up and refuse to melt the stock through fear of running out before it comes back.. or maybe it won’t ever come back?! ? ? I need to change my mindset though and melt them then I can enjoy them all over again when they make a comeback. Xxx the discontinued stock however… nope!

      It would be boring wouldn’t it if my list never changed. When I think when I first started I wouldn’t change my list and was so strict with it, now I’m totally the opposite lol xx
