To celebrate the scent descriptions recently commissioned from @apostates, Scent of a Warden is pleased to announce the unveiling of a new NPC scent - David Anderson (Captain, Councilor, Admiral)
David Anderson: Solid, smooth and slightly gruff with underlying passion - cedarwood, frankincense, hazelnut, oakmoss and amber with hints of nutmeg and gunpowder.
C’mon. He needed his own scent.
Would a (mostly complete) 28 Days Of Commander Shepard meme be acceptable in the place of a description for a custom scent commission? I feel like my meme posts illustrate my Shepard far better than I could ever hope to describe her. (For reference, to date I have written up 17 posts totaling about 2.8k words.)
Unfortunately, I would not be able to accept a mostly complete 28 Days of Shepard meme. First of all, the meme is incomplete, and therefore might be missing key elements. Also, those memes are fairly arbitrary - some of the questions might not be things that really matter to your Shepard, or they might miss things out. Finally, in whatever format, I need your description sent to me by email. It is a great deal easier for me to deal with something that has been sent to my in box than following a tag on Tumblr. I really am sorry, but I need an actual write-up rather than a link to a meme.
Hi I recently ordered some scents and I absolutely adore them. But how long do they keep for? and is there a certain way I should store them? Thank you
I specifically use oils that are not going to go off in a particularly short period of time, and in all honesty, I couldn’t give you a specific deadline for how long they’ll last, but I can say that it’ll be a good long while - over a year at the absolute minimum. As to a certain way of storing them - again, no clear-cut answer for that. They’re pretty durable, and I ship them out in amber glass bottles so sunlight won’t do them any harm, so … store them like you would any perfume bottle and you’d be fine. In fact, you probably don’t have to be as careful with these as you would with an alcohol-based perfume.
Hi! I've recently ordered a custom Shepard scent from you and am really excited about it. I did have a question, though - do you keep blend notes for a custom scent on hand so I could maybe order more in the future? Or do you start completely from scratch each time, even if it's for the same Shepard/Warden/Hawke? Basically, when I run out of my Shepard's scent, will I be able to get more of the same perfume, or is it likely to be a different scent?
This has actually come up recently, so I would like to direct your attention to the Commissions to Date page. This is a list of the custom blends I have done to date; it’s not updated as often as it might be, but I keep the full comprehensive list of orders I have done at home. So if anyone is interested in ordering a replacement of their original custom blend, rest assured that I do have the recipe on hand.
Dragon Age: Origins had a unique selling point in that not only were we as players able to choose the race and background of our unique player characters, but we actually had the opportunity to play through the character’s origin story and have it tie back to our characters to a greater or lesser extent throughout the game.
In honour of this unique aspect of Dragon Age: Origins and to celebrate Scent of a Warden’s first official vendor appearance at MCM ComicCon, Scent of a Warden is pleased to announce the launch of the Origins range of scents. Rather than focusing on the Warden themselves in this instance, the Origins range focuses on the background - the place and the mood from which the six origin stories we are provided throughout the game are launched. It’s what a given Warden might think of as ‘home’, however they feel about said home.
These scents are available in both the 1ml imps and the 5ml bottle sizes, and are subject to all special offers (the 2-for-$22 bottle offer and the 5-for-$13 imp offer).
From 24-26 May 2013, Scent of a Warden will be visiting MCM Comic Con, Excel Centre, London with a vendor’s stall of its very own.
The usual selection of NPC perfumes will be available for sale, as well as a few other items and surprises; watch this space for further announcements.
Special guest at the SOAW stall will be @wenchlatte, artiste extraordinaire.
So if you happen to be in the area that weekend, come say hello! We’ll be right by the cosplay stage … or, failing that, just follow your nose. *g*
I just wanted to flag up something I’ve noticed today - I’m not sure where it started, but someone reblogged an old giveaway from last year (the cutoff date is stated as May 2012 in the post) and it’s been doing the rounds.
For the record - and hopefully people read this before it goes viral and people actually expect this to be a viable giveaway - there is not currently a giveaway reblog thing going on at Scent of a Warden. There probably will be one after MCM (as there’ll be unsold stock I can set aside for something special for SOAW followers) but this one is last year’s and isn’t actually happening right now.
If you’ve reblogged it, I’d appreciate it if you could delete the post so that people don’t get the wrong idea. I don’t want people to think there’s a giveaway when there isn’t and then get disappointed when they don’t hear anything. (Not, I suppose, that 95% of the people who reblog these things ever expect to, but it’s the principle.)
You may have answered this before--but how long with the SSV Normandy be a scent? I ask because due to my circumstances, I may not be able to place an order with you for about a month. Will it still be available?
I did answer it before, but no harm in answering it again - it was a few weeks ago.
I don’t have an exact date for the availability for the SSV Normandy Limited Edition, but it should be available until at least mid-June. Which means it should still be available in about a month. There will also be plenty of warning when I do decide to wind that one down.
