Dessert du Jour...Tis the Season!

I love the Holidays! There is a heightened level of excitement that starts at Halloween, steadily climbs until Thanksgiving, peaks at Christmas & New Years and tapers off on the day of January 1st. On a personal level, it is a time for family & friends and professionally, it is our most hectic, frenzied, and chaotic time..which I live for!

Each year, I try and communicate to customers the importance of placing their orders early to allow for longer processing times and shipping but each year, I always seem to get the panicked 11th hour customer who has waited until the last possible second to start their shopping. It's typically a man, shopping for his wife on the 22nd and wondering if it will arrive in time for gift-giving. After I stop laughing, I explain that even if we could finish the order that day, the postal system is so bogged down with packages & cards that we cannot guarantee it's timely delivery. Throughout the year, we promise to do our best, but once packages leave our facility, we don't have any control over them.

Even though there are still 63 days until Christmas, we have already begun planning our Holiday Fragrance Collection, Gift Sets, and new Holiday products that are going to be introduced. Jill & I get so excited when coming up with products & scent names and spend, the majority of, our working hours brainstorming. If you could have seen our 'session' for the Halloween Collection, it went from mild to gruesome in a matter of hours! :-)

I am not going to devulge any details at this point except to say that this Holiday season is going to be bigger and better than years past. New theme, new packaging, and new scents (as well as some classic favorites) that will make our site a 1-stop shopping portal for almost everyone on your list so stay tuned!
