...because no one pulls me out of retirement quite like Vajra....
An Otherworldly All-Hallows
All-Hallows marks the time of the year when the veil that parts the realms of the living from the dead is at its thinnest.
These lucky thirteen oils were hand-crafted to embody the power and the spirit of the season that celebrates the darkest parts of our imaginations and of the unseen world around us all.
( something wicked...Collapse )
UpdatesSept 4th (am):
The Resurrecteds that made the cut are- Poison Apple, Stingy Jack, Haunted Hayride, and Witching Hour. I hope no one is too disappointed by the five that are left out! I'll get everyone's total posted by this evening. On a side note, I am SO excited for this collection! yay!
Oh! And we're dropping one scent Black Flowers, Violet Ribbons since not a whole lot of people jumped on it.Sept 7th (am):
Totals were posted Friday, big thanks to everyone who has paid up. If yuo need more time, please let me know.
I'm hoping place our order today, I'm just waiting on Vajra to get back to my email. I'll update when we are all placed and waiting on that delicious DC#!Sept 9th (am):
Our order was placed last night! It's huge! Yay us! LOLOct 1st:
I wish I had some info for you guys, but I haven't heard anything. I know Vajra had a very busy couple of weeks (she got married!) but I haven't heard anything since we placed the order. I'll write to her and see what's up just after I post this non-update.October 13th:
I've spoken by email to Vajra twice in the last week, she assures me our order will be in the mail today. I feel just awful that this has taken so long, I know that V had many complicating factors that delayed our order, but still -It's been a month and a half since this opened, and that's terribly disappointing. I promise I'll work very hard to get these oils decanted, packaged and in the mail to you ASAP once I get then in my hands. thank you for your understanding : /October 15th:
According to our DC# the oils will be delivered today or tomorrow! YAY! I'll update next to let you know how quickly the decanting/packaging process is coming along. I'm totally prepared to dedicate the next couple of nights to this project :)October 17th:
*Still* decanting! I'm confident I can finish up the last few scents and have everything packed and ready to go by the time the day is out. I'll post DC#s
on Monday! Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PATIENCE! xo!October 19th:
TRACKING INFO! (erm, some of it, anyway. I have a few domestics to ship out this afternoon -the PO was crazy busy this morning, and three int'ls to go. More DC#s
to be posted later!)

The new Arcana update has landed, and I'm decanting the 4 perfumes and 2 soaps, including the exclusives from Scent Addict AND Soap Box Company! US to anywhere, no minimum required.This way to the circle....
A conversation about hits and misses on scents. I have the darnest luck seeing a scent description and disciphering if it will be great or awful on me. The most recent example is grassy scents. I have Hay Moon but its too dry and not woodsy enough, turns a little old lady perfumey on me. So I took a chance and I just got Moon of Small Spirits in. It is LOVE. Stays woodsy without being masculine, and has a similar spicy note to Pepper which is another of my loves.
Fruit scents are all the same on me sadly- Multicolored Pinwheel is so incredible wet but dries to blech the way that Hay Moon did. Bon Vivant and Shango did similar. Strawberry Moon is too desired for me to even think of trying, and I'm dubious about Berry Moon. YET the berry in Bitter Moon is great, so are any fruit scents that NA puts out. I just don't get it.
Florals- does anyone else have a bad time with aged florals? Rose Moon and Dyan Moon are both unwearable now from their once amazing sweetness. They both turn straight to powder on me. Same with the Possets Cambienne from the same period as Dyan Moon.
Anyone have any input? Similar experiences?
Holy cow. Okay. Let's back up the drama train.
I'm treating this very simply, because:
1. To be honest, I don't have the energy to dedicate to investigating this issue presently, and
2. I don't need
to because the post goes against community rules. Sales on Sunday only. So it's coming down.
To those of you who have been scammed: I am so sorry to hear that, I think it's awesome that you all watch out for each other. -and thank you to the people who sent me messages regarding the potential sale of stolen goods on decantations
To the poster of the sales-in-question: if you are indeed not responsible for these allegations I hope you're able to shake the rumours. But if you ARE the person responsible for that behavior... *insert glaring evil eye here*
Please! Back to your regularly scheduled (albeit fairly neglected) Decantations action!
Defy_you_always (with the f-locked sales post below) is Beneathglass/lucid_phantasm/MASSIVE SWAPLIFTER from BPAL.org, several BPAL LJ comms, Lush forums, MUA, and God only knows where else.
She is deleting comments but beware! She's desperate to sell her stolen wares. You can make or reuse all the accounts you want, sweetie, but you can't hide from the BPALers.
Do NOT do business with her. Proper authorities have been alerted. Thank you.
These are priced to sell, everyone. I've been downsizing everything in preparation for the arrival of my first baby bean (now almost 17 weeks along in the ole tum-tum), and due to some financial setbacks regarding my personal transport, I'm parting with most of my collection and only keeping the ones that I use most often.
Buyer pays shipping. I use USPS Priority-mail for domestic shipping, and I try to use the flat-rate boxes. The smallest-size one is $4.95 in postage. Everything gets bubble-wrapped well before packing. Insurance is optional. Overseas shipping will have to be calculated by destination. I take PayPal payments (firstname.lastname@example.org). That seems to be the easiest all around, but if you'd rather pay via another method, let me know, and we'll see what we can work out.
I will not do imps or partial bottles. You've got to buy the whole amount available. And, of course, all sales are final. Oh...first come, first served, too, so make sure to check the comments first to see if your selection(s) has(have) already been snagged. Thanks!Cheshire Moon 2008

I would just like to let everyone know that Sidhe Creations goodies can now be found at a second place, Morrigan's Closet
So far the store is pretty small but I hope to one day soon have it filled with trillions of wonderful products. Right now Im stocking Sidhe Creations oils and Faerie Dust's, a small selection of Manic Panic hair dyes and cosmetics and lots of yummy soaps, oils and other goodies from the GLORIOUS Arcana Soaps!
Please stop by and have a look :) I have tested the site over and over again, but if you find any problems please let me know so I can fix it up :)
Also, sign up as a customer to be kept up to date with new additions, promotions, sales and whatnot!
Ruth :) xo
If this post isn't allowed here please let me know and I'll delete it straight away
Made this post over on the Posset's forum, but figured I'd whack it up here as well - assuming you lovely ladies (and gents) don't mind.
Direct copy and past from my forum post so you can ignore it if you'e already read it :)
"Just gauging interest for now.
I collected all the Cambienne '08 series as I was interested in following its progression. However, it now means I am stuck with several bottles that I can't see myself wearing.
So I've decided to share the love.
Hence, my proposal is this: A Circular Swap.
I'll decant out samples of all the 08 Cambienne and send it on to first person, who will test until sated and then send it onto the next, and so on and so forth.
Just drop a line in here if you are keen."
I've updated my perfume sale listing. It's HUGE! Over ten companies with tons of different scents (LOTS of fall ones, but really a wide variety). Limited editions and discontinued scents as well, so if you're searching for that beloved scent, I might just have it.
PLUS I have decanting supplies for sale as well. Check it out!
And thanks for looking!
Friday is the last day to sign up and pay for my BPAL Snake Pit Decant Circle!
Asp Viper, Australian Copperhead, Boomslang. Green Tree Viper, King Cobra and Saw-Scaled Viper all need a little love.
The bottles will be picked up at Will-Call this Saturday, decanted and packaged and shipped on Sunday! Get these SUPER FAST!
Vajra's latest Conjure Oils update was enticing enough to bring me out of decanter-retirement!
So, I'm gauging interest here
Oh, who am I trying to kid, this line is irresistible, I'm doing it! :)
I will do the entire Via Carpathia line, but my supplies on hand limit me to one bottle per scent, so get in as soon as you can!
The cost per sample would be the usual Conjure sample price of $3.50per vial. $2.00 shipping domestic $3.00 int'l (but as usual, I'll wave either for anyone ordering a full set! -fyi- a full set comes to $38.50)
Delivery confirmation and extra goodies, as always, included! paypal fees waved.( Scent Descriptions under the cutCollapse )EDITING!
A supply resource just became available, so I'm opening up more bottles! Tell your friends, keep me out of the poor house :D This one's getting 'spensive lol.EDIT 4-19
: Our order is placed! Your total is listed above, and all forms of paypal are accepted to email@example.com. A big thank you to those who have already paid! Check back here for more updates. I will let you know when we get our click-n-ship, keep you updated on the decanting process and then post DC#s
here after I've shipped! thanks for helping me make this one happen :)EDIT 4-24
: We have a click and ship! I should get our order by Tuesday, I'll bet :)Edit 4-29
: I have the bottles (they're gorgeous!) and will be decanting them all tonight, packaging up tomorrow and shipping by Friday! I will post the Delivery Confirmations for domestic shipments in my next update.Edit 5-2
I have DC#s
for domestic packages! I'll be back to post them once I've figured out what the heck is up with my keyboard. It's taken me five entire minutes to type these sentences!(xposting to conjureoils
Hey all, long time, no chat! I know we're all strapped for cash, and I already have FAR too much perfume, but I have to say I kinda miss all the decant circles. AND... I got the Possets newsletter and I have to say some of the Spring scents
sound yummy. I'm just saying. ;) *cough*
And in the spirit of fostering conversation, here's a question. I've been going back through my collection and wearing some of my older scents and rediscovering why I fell in love with them in the first place. So... what are your top 10 favorite scents right now? I know mood and seasons and stuff affect it, so I just wanna know what you are into currently :).
My current top 10 in no order:
BON VIVANT - An effervescent blend of crystalline champagne notes and sweet strawberry.
BENGAL - skin musk with honey, peppers, clove, cinnamon bark and ginger.
DANA O'SHEE - Offerings of milk, honey and sweet grains.
WHIP - Black leather and damp red rose.
HALLOWEEN - Incensy, spicy, and manages to capture the width of a dimming blue October sky.
SEX WITH THE SPIRITS - Very earth-like but yet with a huge shot of vapor, spice and a bit of cake roll around with a perfumy back lash...
Poison Apple 2008 - green apples coated in caramel sprinkled with brown sugar slathered in buttered rum.
Grandma's House - This is fond memory blend of walking into her house with a batch of gingerbread cooking, candied apples cooling, and vanilla frosted butter cookies ready to eat.
Sparkle Dust - A little champagne, some vanilla cream, mangoes, sugar, cookie crumbles, and much more!
Angelitos - Mexican sweets - cajeta, sopaipilla and chocolate skulls.
