hawns will there be a matching Aftershave to go with Eau de Treget? The scent description sounds really nice to me, I think I’m going to like it! Also, will DeclarationGrooming be making a matching Icarus Soap? Thanks!

No and no (and if there is a follow-up question about a regular bison base, then that is also no). Since the scent is an adaptation of Delor de Treget, I would have to discontinue it to offer Eau de Treget as an aftershave, and then there would be one less option for people who want fragrances constructed from natural materials only.

I am, however, working on a promotion to give 1 oz Eau de Treget aftershaves (the same ones I gave out at the Maggard Meetup) with a certain number of people who purchase the EdT when it's released. I haven't talked with any retailers or anything (it will be going to Maggard Razors, Top of the Chain and West Coast Shaving), so I don't know what the logistics will be yet. Basically I just had the idea on Friday and started on making the aftershave this weekend.

I've been using the Eau de Treget a lot lately. My nose senses an amazingly soft, summer scent. I've also been using the Maggard Meetup aftershave sample, which is a dead ringer (to my unsophisticated yet appreciative nose) to the EdT. To me, it's distinctive enough from Delor de Treget to warrant its own product designation. A Delor de Treget "flanker," if you will. I'm the last guy on earth to tell you how to run your business, but I'll miss the Maggard juice when it's gone.

So will I.  It's great stuff.  While I love the scent, Shawn is supposed to be doing an unscented version of this aftershave splash which I am truly looking forward to because then I'll have the benefits of the aftershave ingredients yet still be able to use any eau de toilette I want. Big Grin

It's definitely something I've considered, but if I axed Delor de Treget, then Champs de Lavande and La Quatrième Ville would be my only all-natural fragrances. Doing both would just end up causing more work for probably about the same amount of sales (much like how TSM Fougère stock will be gathering dust while La Forêt de Liguest is in stock) so maybe at some point I will do a short run of Eau de Treget in aftershave, but probably not in the immediate future. Perhaps next year when it's more seasonally appropriate.

Not to mention that I've got my plate pretty full in the immediate future with getting ready for the releases of Skin Salves, La Forêt de Liguest, and Lamplight Penance, in addition to running a meetup in St. Louis in October, getting ready for a September appearance at a South STL festival, preparing for a launch and some tie-in promotions at Perfumariē in NYC, and perhaps heading out to the left coast for something that I'm not allowed to talk about yet. And the usual holiday season rush, too. Things are getting crazy, but in an awesome way Smile

That was basically a long way of saying not now, but maybe a LE run next year.

You bet! Just waiting for the completed skin salve labels so I can send an order to the label printer and then we'll get you all set up Smile
