Father's Day Sale
Dapper Dragon's Etsy store is having a Father's Day sale. From 6/10 until 6/17, get 10% off any order over $10 with coupon code DADSDAY2015!

In addition, this summer, some changes are coming to the Dapper Dragon Soaps line up. As usual, we're aiming for the Summer Solstice,June 21st, for the changes.

Summer Limited Edition
It's almost time for the summer limited edition scent. This year's scent is called Festival. It combines summer blooming flowers, summer fruit, and an intriguing base of smoke and gunpowder to evoke the feeling of summer festivals around the world. Here in the US, when you think of fireworks, you can't help but think of Independence Day. Fireworks also feature in music festivals, sporting events and more, from LA to Kyoto. Festival will be available as shaving soap, bath soap, and Scale Polish aftershave gel. Keep your eyes open for more information!

New Scents For the Line
We're adding new scents to the regular line up, and in keeping with the season they include some light, refreshing varieties. Each scent will be a shaving soap and bath soap. Each scent with the exception of White Chocolate Orange will also be available as Scale Polish.
  1. Coconut, Lime & Verbena - Coconut and lime are the stars of this scent, and create a mixture reminiscent of beaches and tropical drinks. Verbena adds a woody, citrusy undertone and ties the scent together.

  2. Cucumber Melon - This popular combination can be found all over the personal care world. A light, refreshing fragrance, and a pleasant way to start your day.

  3. White Chocolate Orange - This was originally a custom order for Windsor Citrus from the Path to Smoothness blog. But it gets so much interest every time it's mentioned that I had to try it out as a regular offering. White chocolate fragrance oil blends with sweet orange essential oil for a sweet olfactory treat. But don't eat it, even if you bang it on the table first.

  4. Scylla (maybe) - Scylla will be a maritime scent with east Mediterranean influences. This one's not quite ready, yet, so I don't want to promise it for the 21st, but that's the target.
Saying Goodbye to Old Friends
There are a few scents in our current line up that aren't selling anymore, or which haven't taken off, yet. Cinnamon Bunand Pomegranate will not be remade after the current stock is exhausted. Green Tea and Bergamot is still fairly new, but it may not be part of the line-up long term.

A few more updates:

1. Festival sold out! - Our last tub of Festival sold over the weekend, but I have more in the pipeline that will be listed this week.

2. Blood Orange Hiatus - Blood Orange has always been a somewhat problematic scent, but it's consistently popular so I've kept it around. Unfortunately, a recent issues with a supplier's product became the straw that broke the camel's back, and the scent is on hiatus. At this time it is planned to be returning, but reformulated using Blood Orange EO as the base. Unless I come up with something I like that's too different, in which case I'll rename it to avoid confusion.

What's the word on Scylla?

Still early days. Between the summer set up, then 4th of July, and some wholesale orders I haven't been able to work on it much.

Probably not, based on last year's response. I'll look for a new winter scent for 2015.

That's a shame as I was given it as a gift about the time you brought it out. I love the scent and use it all year. I find it particularly cheerful, for some reason.
