Great Story Behind Our Newest Facebook Fan

Great story behind our newest Facebook fan, Andee Howard Cui. At first, I didn't recognize Andee's name. Many of You Scent Me's fans are total strangers (which never ceases to amaze me and for which I am truly grateful!) A little digging made me realize that Andee Howard Cui is the same Andee who works for Majestic Mountain Sage (a wonderful soapmaking supplier, best known for their ground breaking lye calculator)!

Flashback to 2008. I called MMS in a frenzy because the bottle I thought was olive oil, turned out to be a blend of olive and canola oil. Soapmaking is a very exact science, and I was in a frenzy that my calculations were now totally off and my batch ruined. Tina in tech support was incredibly helpful and saved my soap from ruin. Once the batch was cured, I sent a couple of bars to "The Sage" (as it is affectionately known) as a small token of my appreciation.

A short time later, I was excited to receive an email from Andee -- my soap was being featured on their blog! (The email was simply signed 'Andee,' with no last name, and the "From" in the email only gave the company name.)

Welcome Andee! It is so nice to be able to put a face to the name!

Your choice of color in white, khaki, or yellow. Of course our favorite way to use it is while we're making soap. It makes a great gift for any soapmaker.

Unsolicited Testimonial

Great to come back from the long holiday weekend and find this in my inbox.

"I always look forward to the arrival of these products. Everything is professionally and individually packed, the soaps I've used are all long lasting, lightly scented and perfect for sensitive skin. The coconut body and hair wash is energizing, the milk and honey hand and body lotion is the right thickness (and smells awesome) and the smelly jelly gives my room an unobtrusive delightful scent."

If It Fits It Ships -- Not So Fast There Perfume

We've all seen those commercials from the United States Post Office proclaiming whatever you can fit in one of their flat rate boxes (as long as it's under 70 pounds) ships for a low flat rate. This does not hold true when it comes to mailing perfume. Due to their flammable nature, fragrances containing alcohol, cannot be shipped via air (so no Priority or Express Mail). This also means that shipping perfume to Hawaii is not permitted since there are no ground shipping options to the islands. Packages containing perfume must also weigh less than 16 ounces. Recently, I shipped a package containing three one ounce bottles of perfume.  Between wrapping the bottles in bubble wrap, plus packing peanuts, the package was well over a pound. I was told I'd have to rewrap the package. The post office has advised that each bottle should be shipped separately. Also, perfume containing alcohol is prohibited in international shipments.
