Bubble Mania Bath Bombs

We love the feel that our foaming bath bombs deliver and the silky feel after lounging in the tub. It's a great escape from the daily grind.
Unfortunately the weather hasn't been overly friendly in allowing us to boost our stock for the coming spring season, but we're doing what we can to reload around the wet and rain.
Sweet Pea, the No. 1 favorite among our customers, is in stock. We'll be boosting our lavender inventory, since this scent is No. 2 among our customers, and Victorian Rhapsody, which rates No. 3, is available also.
We promise to get Kai made and unfortunately one of our scents will undergo a rename so as not to be confused with the Givenchy perfume. We love the name, and while our fragrance isn't close to the Givenchy perfume, we thought it best to seek another name.
Tahiti Temptation will made a reappearance and eventually the Bubble Mania page on the site will undergo an overhaul.
We will be adding more scents to entice your little monkies to want to take a bath. Right now we offer Bubble Gum, but we are planning to add a Lil' Monkey and Jungle Book to the fold. We're working on a Little Princess scent and we're hunting for a perfect fit for Little Prince.
NEW!! We're so crazy about the Misbehavin' scent and think you will be as well. It's a very fun, flirty and, dare I say, sexy fragrance. Our testers have loved it maybe more than we do! Sweet, juicy candy apples and pomegranate are combined with ivy and a wink of mystery. We hope to offer a complementing soap to go with this. It will definitely be among our choices in Body Mists.
NEW!! Pretty. And this scent is for those seeking to appease their feminine side. The mix of Bartlett pears, apricots, white peach and plum blossoms with a kiss of fresh air and mimosas makes a very pretty scent.
NEW!! Beneath the Stars. The energy of night comes alive with a combination of grape, peach, citrus essences, plum, rose and a capitvating musk.
What will be missing from our line will be scents that we cannot find replacements for: Allure, Balance, Exotic Embrace, Golden Poppy and Solace.
However, plans are to introduce a few extra scents to reach every emotion and mood we're famous for having. It will start with the introduction of a Tibetan Amber and work through such fragrances as our ever-popular Lustful Thoughts, Attraction, Mistress, Oh Foxy Lady and Ladies Night. It's all about feminine wiles.

Weathering leather

Leather is one of our popular scents, but a not so popular one the female half of this business likes to make often. So when candles are made in this product, plenty are done at once!

Why black over brown? I guess I view black as more daring and brown for those old bomber jackets, chaps, leather sofas and libraries and cowboys. Actually we carry and sell both colors. If you've got a preference of color when ordering, please let us know in the comment section until I can figure out how to not make it complicated to add a second button to our cart.
Why the discussion about leather? For those who love the scent, we're adding more options. Goodlooking Cowboy came on board about a year ago and, like our straight leather, we have a hard time keeping this one in stock. We'll be adding Guns 'n Roses to our selection starting with the Wamego Tulip Festival.
Goodlooking Cowboy is colored in blue with thin strips of brown, but Guns 'n Roses should definitely stand out visually. This entry is actually to introduce you to the scent -- tanned leather (but of course) with a slight hint of rose petals (must have a hint of feminine appeal so this scent tempts both sexes) and it's showered with musk.
I can't make promises what these candles will look like, but I'm aiming for some red, blue, orange and black combinations in angled layers. Be sure to stop by our booth in the park or feel free to preorder and we'll bring it to the festival.

Why blog?

Welcome to our blog.
We've wanted to blog for a few months now and have decided that it was time to be more interactive on the net, especially between shows.
We feel this may be our best venue to explain why we do what we do, pick the fragrances we do and share a little bit about what we do, our aspirations, testing results, product searches etc. We thought maybe some took us literally about being mad scientists and thought we'd better shatter our Albert Einstein image to be more like ourselves.
The About Us link on our website pretty much fits us to a T.
At shows and fairs, Rockin is the most visible person in the company. Scented is usually in "the lab" trying to keep stock adequate, experimenting with formulas, fragrances and a spectrum of colors as well as our website updated with new stock, previews of what's coming and keeping up with what sells out.
We're trying to get ready for the April 18 and 19 Wamego Tulip Festival. Last year, Wamego is where we debuted the bulk of our Lippity Dew product. Our range of flavors has certainly increased since.
The Bubble Mania Bath Bombs were new last year as well.
Since we've added something every year, it should be no surprise that we will have something new this year. We've been testing several formulas for a body mist. We've been looking for the right combination of ingredients that leave a soft, powdery, cool and almost silky feel. Our problem is that of the 10 or so formulas we've concocted, we can't seem to narrow it down to one. We are down to three, but we're trying to determine what will be of interest to the public in terms of fragrances, packaging, affordability and appearance.
By all means leave suggestions for scents you would like to see. I'm told we will offer up to 10.
