Well, it's official. I've finally taken the plunge and gotten myself into the candle and soap making business. I'm thrilled that a dear friend of mine is diving off into the venture with me and I think a lot of fun is in store with this little partnership.
We're developing a line of heavily scented soy candles with a decadent vibe to them. We're sticking with the whole "Midnight Gypsy" baroque, ornate, eclectic theme in not only packaging but fragrance blends as well. We've got a lot of fun things up our sleeve with this one!
Introducing our new candle and spa line -
Midnight Gypsy Luxe... Bewitching Brews To Soothe Body & Soul.
Here are a few teasers....
Emerald Isle: This scent is a fresh green clover blend that makes us think of, well, the Emerald Isle herself - Ireland.
One Day My Knight Will Come: This one is deep musk with light floral notes and a touch of sandalwood and patchouli.
My Highland Home: Mist-shrouded Scottish hillsides dotted with heather. One of my personal favorites.
Boudoir: Creamy vanilla and warm amber mingle with the soft wood notes of cedarwood, oak, sandalwood, and patchouli in this unbelievably rich, decadent, sensual scent. I've never been a big fan of vanilla scents, but I'm in LOVE with this one...so much so that we've adopted it as our "signature" scent.
Gypsy Rose: Now this one, ahhhh, this one smells just exactly like a bouquet of fresh roses cut right out of the garden. Not heavy, not sharp, not cloying. Just pure, soft, dewy roses with the faintest hint of greenery.
In addition to the candles, we're working on a line of luxury hand-poured soaps as well. We'll include olive oil, shea butter, and goat milk soaps that are all hand-blended and incorporate fresh blossoms and herbs right in the recipe, all wrapped up in gorgeous packaging fit for a queen!
We'll also be working up rich, decadent lotions, bath bombs, bath salts, milk bath mixes, lip balms, and all sorts of other goodies.
Be sure to keep checking back in here at the blog for updates. With the busy holiday season upon us, I am swamped with jewelry orders so it will likely be around the first of the year before we are actually ready to think about a launch of anything. I'm hoping we'll be able to have some of our lines ready for a launch in time for Valentine's Day.
And lastly, but certainly not least, I have to share a fun site with you! My friend Sammye Goolsby runs a neat little corner in cyberspace called The Geezer Gang. Sammye is a riot and is farrrrrr from geezerdom! LOL! She was kind enough to put up a lovely feature on the home page of her site regarding my jewelry as well as our latest goodies. She's also been kind enough to put up a link for us on her "Beauty" page. Be sure to stop by and visit her at The Geezer Gang to check it all out.
If you have any questions, wild ideas, or just fun tidbits to share, as always I'd love to hear from you!
