The home page for the store says Retour ends January 31st.
Oops, of course I'd forget to look in the most obvious place! :headdesk:

Re: 2017 - The Year of the Retour!

Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but how long will the retour go for?

Re: Hello Possetiers!

This is wonderful news and I'm looking forward to ordering more of my favourites, too. Especially Lovechild Sweetbaby, my go-to sleep scent. Just last night I was looking at my almost empty bottle and wondering why I hadn't ordered one of the huge bottles of it.

Re: News In 2016

I'm so shocked, I only just found out now. I don't even know what to say. Fabienne, you'll be sorely missed, even by people on the other side of the world who you never even met you in person. Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift with us, and I'll think of you every time I reach for one of your...

Re: Xuong Cuong (Vietnamese Tree Spirit)

Oh, I love this! It's perfect for the antipodean Halloween season, where we're moving into warmer weather rather than cold. It's so refreshing and light, equal parts fruity and plant-like green. The yuzu and crystal musk really sing as it dries. This will get a LOT of wear in the coming months.

Re: The Scent of Night

This is a very green scent, like fresh green leaves, but with a base of something earthy at the base. I get the cedar, the brown musk, and something almost camphoric - is that spikenard? Whatever it is, I love it. There's almost a leathery quality here. On the whole it's so intriguing that I keep co...

Re: Lady Hawke

This opens with a very fresh sort of sweetness that I really like. It's very classy and classic. I do understand where the soapy descriptions are coming from but there's a definite and noticeable sharpness - that almost aldehyde quality that others have mentioned - that keeps it from being truly soa...

Re: What Do You Want For Yule?

Something with heavier candal wax. We do have our gorgeous Midnight Mass at St Catherine's with wax (my bottle is aging like heaven!)...but I am thinking the altar itself with more candals, heavier incense and sprigs of pine branches. Yessssssss! Beeswax is one of my favourite notes. I would love i...

Re: Cambienne: Whooo

Initially, this is all leaves and wood on my skin. But as it dries, a toasty, almost gingerbread-like quality emerges. It's not foody at all, but something - perhaps the white pepper? - does remind me of gingerbread blends like The Russian Dance from the Nutcracker. It is incredibly moreish. There i...
