For those of you who have been wondering (more of you than I would have expected), I was forced to take an unexpected hiatus a couple of months ago owing to extreme real-life issues. This means that I’m pretty well behind on just about everything, unfortunately, and for that I apologise.
If you are waiting for an order, it will be with you in the next few weeks as I have a week’s worth of post office runs to do. If you have placed an order, you should have received a reply from me asking you to resend the order if you are still interested. When I have cleared those orders that were still in the queue, I will be bringing SOAW off hiatus with a few new bits and pieces in the works.
I will keep everyone updated on things, but just to let you know … Scent of a Warden still exists, and once things are a little more settled, it will be business as usual. I apologise for any delays, inconvenience or concerns this has caused.
Hey, do you happen to have any of the SSV Normandy left? I'm interested in sending in a pretty huge order, but I'm still a little unclear as to wether or not that particular scent is still available.
I am trying to find a way to put this politely. I apologise if I fall short of the mark.
I posted on the SOAW site about the availability of the Normandy scent just yesterday. Please read the post and check the NPC blend page for confirmation if you are unsure. I will restate for clarity: the Normandy is now a general catalogue scent, which means that is available permanently.
As regards ‘huge orders’, though, I would request that you read through the FAQ regarding the limits I have placed on order numbers, and the reasons behind having placed those limits.
I apologise for dealing with this in such a public way, but given that I was asked anonymously, I did not have any other option while still answering the question. The only thing I can recommend at this point is that you please read everything carefully before ordering.
First of all, a comment regarding the SSV Normandy scent. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the product, Scent of a Warden is pleased to keep the Normandy on as a general catalogue scent. I don’t imagine this will happen with many of the Limited Edition scents, but in this case I am happy to make an exception.
So a new Limited Edition scent takes the Normandy’s place. Scent of a Warden has chosen the Hanged Man as the subject of its current Limited Edition blend.
The Hanged Man is cedar, dragon’s blood resin, amber, leather and steel with hints of woodsmoke, valerian, clove, ale, cider and rum - blood and booze spilled on floorboards and cheap furniture; back-alley vice crowned by the classy suite of a merchant prince; a motley, mismatched place where a motley, mismatched group may take their ease.
The FAQ has been updated. The imp pack prices have been moved to the FAQ for ease in ordering, and I have added Knights of the Old Republic, Origins Range and Firefly imp packs to the existing lines.
There is still no firm decision on whether or not the SSV Normandy scent will be a permanent addition to the Mass Effect general line; there was a reasonable response to the post I made on the subject earlier this month, but nothing conclusive. I will leave commentary on the matter (in replies to this post or the previous one, please; not in my Ask box) open until the new Limited Edition launches on 3 July 2013.
While Scent of a Warden is primarily about video game characters, we can and occasionally do extend our range into the realm of books, TV and film. In token of that, Scent of a Warden is proud to present the Firefly range:
Captain Malcolm Reynolds is mountain air and ozone, leather and gunpowder earthed with cedarwood and myrrh - scuffed, scarred and ultimately free, for better or for worse; still flying.
Zoe Alleyne Washburn is gunpowder and ozone, leather and steel smoothed out with hazelnut and brightened with bergamot - the autumn flower who can kill you with her pinky.
Hoban ‘Wash’ Washburn is green apple, mountain air, green tea, lemon verbena and honey - a sweet, quirky leaf on the wind.
Kaylee Frye is strawberries and starfruit, fresh hay and mulled cider and a little hint of musk and sweet rum - the bright, the sweet, the sensual.
Jayne Cobb is bay rum, gunpowder, steel and cedarwood with hints of amber and warm hay - the gruff ‘bad guy’ with a well-hidden heart.
Inara Serra is stephanotis and amber, jasmine and orchid with a core of rosewood and steel - exotic and enticing and will not put up with your shit.
Simon Tam is black tea, marjoram, cajeput and a dash of clove - cool emotional walls but with a passionate side that comes out of nowhere.
River Tam is lily and spring rain, bergamot and palmarosa with notes of oakmoss, dragon’s blood resin and ylang ylang - bright grace and power, all the more noticeable for the shadows and grief.
Shepherd Derrial Book is sandalwood and frankincense, benzoin and hazelnut with hints of camphor and coriander - smooth, gentle and sharp and not always what it seems.
The Firefly range is available in 1ml and 5ml, and is subject to all deals (5 1ml imps for $13, 2 5ml bottles for $22). Additionally, the Serenity crew combo pack is also available - all nine imps for $25.
I was hoping to order 1 5ml of Garrus and 1 5ml of Illusive Man. What are your payment options?
If you have a specific request regarding an order and you’re not on Tumblr, please include an email address so that I may contact you directly. But to generally answer your question, I only accept Paypal.
Scent of a Warden is currently addressing a backlog issue that occurred owing to being incredibly busy during the lead-up to MCM Comic Con and being more or less exhausted afterwards. Everyone who is currently on record as awaiting an order has been kept updated, but if something has been lost in transit, please drop me an ask and let me know.
In the process of updating my to-ship list, however, note was made of the unexpected popularity of the current Scent of a Warden Limited Edition scent: the SSV Normandy. In response to the demand, the idea of making the Normandy a part of the general collection is currently under review. If you would like to see the Normandy scent as a permanent addition to the Scent of a Warden repertoire, just hit the Like button on this post.
The new Limited Edition will launch on 1st July, 2013. The only hint is that it will be themed on a Bioware game drinking establishment.
Just to let everyone know that I will be attending MCM Comic Con at the Excel Centre, London from 24th-26th May, 2013. If you have sent in an order to Scent of a Warden, I apologise for the delay in replying to you; I have been focusing most of my energies on preparing for the convention, and between that, my day job and an unfortunate cold-turned-chest infection, things have been slow in terms of dealing with routine SOAW business.
If you are waiting to hear back about an order, or waiting to receive one, I really am sorry for any delay the convention prep is causing. I promise that things will be back to business as usual as of Tuesday, 28th May. Thank you for understanding.
