First: Happy, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! <3 I, for one, can’t believe that the Holiday season is here, but I say that in every post just about. I guess I still have no handle on how to perceive time. Fast or slow. All I know is that it feels like yesterday that I posted about Happy New Year, 2012, and another new year is almost here again. One thing that IS different when compared to last year is that I have a new NEW, functioning (yay!) website and I think it’s even better than ever! It’s very interactive, with facebook likes, reviews and even a button to email a scent idea to a friend should you find the perfect suggestion for the ones you love… or want to make sure that they know what’s perfect for your wish list. Please do check it out. I sure had some fun “liking” things when I first saw those buttons. 🙂
What’s even more to like? The return of a beloved and longed for beauty: Mata Hari Perfume. This perfume was and still is talked about with reverence and adulation; like a long lost lover who has never been forgotten. It was originally released as a very limited edition, as I used materials in the formulation that were vintage and many from my personal “stash”. I hadn’t exactly expected that I would be receiving calls and emails asking for samples, drops even, of this precious liquid for years after the edition was sold out. So, I made it a personal mission to re-source new materials that would match as closely as possible the oils that I had used in the original. And I am happy to report that after about a year+, I have found what I need and made a new batch with the new materials and it came out just as beautiful as ever. Hallelujah! I still love it and she holds all of her seductive charms.
Now, Mata Hari is back and with plans to have her be a permanent addition to our offerings; glorious flacon and all. I have missed her. I hope that Mata Hari is a welcome sight (and smell) for those who have wanted more and those who have only heard the legend of this beautiful creation. Happy Holidays indeed.
