Goodbye 2013

Dear Ladies and Gents,

The holiday shopping season is finally over and I can't believe it's 2014! And despite the stress and many late nights this Christmas season, I'm happy to say that this has been my most successful year ever. Whether you bought only one item or many this year, I thank you sincerely for your business. I'm very grateful and humbled by your support!

As you know the end of the year means it's time to sweep away the old and bring in the new. Alas, I must discontinue several scents. The discontinued scents are:

- the Baker's Boy
- Girl on Fire
- Ivory Towers
- Run Away with Me
- Shalimar Knight
- A Stark Winter

The batches I have left are on sale and will be available until I run out. The Harry Potter -inspired scents - DeathsDay Feast and Phoenix in Winter, will stay! However, they will become seasonal scents available only during Fall/Christmas.

On that note, in addition to the new Narnia fragrances, there are FOUR (yes four!!) new Lord of the Rings and Hobbit -inspired scents. They are:

- Bowmaster, inspired by Bard. Main notes: oud, musk, water, leather accord
- Greed n' Glitter, inspired by Smaug. Main notes: opal, amber, smoke, clove
- Greenwood Maiden, inspired by Tauriel. Main notes: gardenia, blackberries, ylang ylang, palmarosa, sandalwood.
- Ranger, inspired by Strider/Aragorn. Main notes: sandalwood, cypress, earth, leather accord, rose, vetiver

In addition to that, my new line of all-natural perfumes called Classique Naturel (Natural Classic) will be unleashed sometime in the Spring. The scents are Sweet Lavender, Patchouli Noir, and Leather Citron. The Classique Naturel line will be created from only 100% natural oils and resins, and, of course, completely vegan as you'd come to expect from Sarawen!

In the planning stages for 2014, there will be more scents in the Ancient Worlds and Sherlock Holmes lines! Thank you again, and I hope you continue to join me on our scented journeys together!

All my Best,
-Sara
