Midweek update and link to drawing

You can enter a drawing for ten samples from Indie Scents today on the PerfumeSmellinthings blog; three winners will each receive ten samples. The blog also has quick sniff reviews of seven perfumes sold at Indie Scents, and SSS Rose Musc got a nice little mention.

The topic for the day on their blog is scents that are a good value, and they also have a coupon code for Indie Scents. Combined with free shipping on orders $75 or more, that may be tempting if you see something there.

I have a mod for Bouquet Blanc that I like and will send out a few testers to see if others like it too. If so, I’ll send out a few more. Also have a mod for a tweak to Lieu de Reves and need to make testers. Very close on both those formulas now!

  1. I’m excited for these Laurie:)

    Perfume makes my day (or night!)

    I’m gonna try for the drawing but either way I will get a hold of these very soon. I still can’t believe Rose Musc and Lieu de Reves missed my smell radar as I adore roses , vanilla, violet and heliotrope ,vetiver and orris. YUM.<3<3

    I do hope that you are feeling better and continue to get well.

    Truly, Tamara

    1. thanks Tamara! Forgot to say I took Lieu de Reves off the sample menu until I finish the tweak, but it won’t be long. The tweak is more complex than the original with a bit more rose, less musk, some added woodsy notes, and a tiny hint of cocoa in the base for yum factor. And I’m just trying a little olibanum. So far testers prefer it to the original. I’m preparing it for the Boutique Collection so these will be the final changes.

  2. Thanks for the heads up! I signed up for the drawing and gave Tabac Aura for a value-priced treat (considering the high quality of your scents, they are a bargain!)

  3. Hi Laurie,

    I would love to be one of the people to try your first set of testers for BB. I’ve been waiting for it. Hope you are making a steady recovery! It sounds like it from your posts.

    Take care,

  4. Hi Laurie,

    I’m happy to hear about the tweaks to Lieu de Reves. Sounds interesting! Although I love the original, I can’t wait to try the new version.

    Have you started thinking about the reformulation of Opal?

    1. hi Ann! I’d love you to test the Reves tweak when I’m done. I don’t want to change it unless most people who like the original also like the tweak. I’ve been playing with the Opal formula a bit but have lots more to do on it yet.
