continue holiday scents after holiday?

Discussion in 'Soap Making' started by Becky-DixieDoesAlpines, Dec 27, 2007.

  1. I had 3 holiday scents this month.
    Gold Frankincense and Myrrh, which sold slowly, and I have some to go still.
    Holly and Mistletoe which was Susan’s Merry Berry colored rose with a white swirl
    Visions of Sugarplums—Susan’s Mulberry colored mauve.
    Both sold like crazy, in fact sold out.
    I have enough scent left to make about 7 bars of each.
    Do you think the holiday scents would sell after the holiday, or use the last bit of FO another way?

    I don't know how well they would sell full price, but you could discount them. I have about 8 oz of my Christmas Bliss fo that I am going to make more bars of with a green swirl and call it evergreen. So renaming may work - I'm hoping so anyway!

    I don't think I've smelled these particular ones but I agree with re-naming. Maybe just Mulberry Spice or a winter kind of name like "Mulled Cider"? Worth a try and if they don't sell--- discount discount discount!

    Agree just rename them, if they get super popular during the year than just don't rename them for Christmas. Or just do a limited edition during the holidays. Vicki

    Merry Berry is very perfumy and could very easier be renamed. If we ever get the gingerbread from Susan, I think they are selling it year around, cause people love the fragrance. Carolyn
     
  6. Thanks for the thoughts.......
    I'm going to start selling a hand balm. I'm trying to coem up with a non-medical-claim name, do you all think hand Therapy is safe?
    Ideas welcome.

    Hand and body balm is pretty safe!!! I don't know, therapy may be close to medical...and doesn't St. ives or someone have a "hand therapy" lotion?
