Shadow Art Fair - New Scents Coming...
I’m getting pretty excited for the Shadow Art Fair in Ypsilanti next month.
One thing that I struggle with as a perfumer and business person is that perfume is about 1000% easier to sell in person. You can’t smell things through the internet. Yes, dedicated people will buy a sample and then decide, but it would be so much easier and more fun if more people were able to smell the scents without ordering anything and waiting for it to come, etc. The Shadow Art Fair will mark the first time I’ve been in-person talking about my work and showing it to people. I’m jazzed.
I also am thinking about releasing two more scents that I’ve been cooking up in time for that fair. A teaser: the first is a unisex (but really, really for only the most daring women) that smells like the inside of Michael Corleone’s top drawer. Basically, it smells of smoke, sex, and money. This might make it sound like it’s a vulgar scent, but it’s actually not vulgar at all. It’s exceedingly quiet, and to be honest, a bit dangerous. I feel like I should card people to make sure they are over 18 before they can smell it. I recently gave a pre-launch bottle to a male friend of mine; he loves it, and has gotten up to some risque shenanigans while wearing it which he partially attributes to the subtle power that this fragrance has on people. Some other people who have smelled it, though, have totally hated it. It’s definitely polarizing. I feel like whether you like this scent or not actually depends not on what your taste in fragrance is, necessarily, but rather it depends on what your stance is towards life.
Some people don’t like getting what they want. Others do. If you like getting what you want, this scent is for you.
And I’ll plead the Fifth on the second mystery fragrance, for now.
Also, I’ve updated my store to include an option to buy samples in a pack of three to save $$$ and make it easier to decide on what you want. I remember when I was first getting in to perfume I was a essentially a sample glutton, not being able to narrow down what I wanted. So this should make it a bit easier for everyone else!
