This was another surprise. I had mixed feelings when I opened the bottle. I was instantly reminded of Potions class, though I was not sure how the scent would smell on me. The only way I can describe this is "sexy Halloween party". The scent is equally medicinal and sweet, and throughout the day, I catch a hint of cararmel and chocolate candy corns, but then am pulled back to earth with herbs and a slight hint of licorice. I am adding this to my list of "must refill" when the bottle starts getting low. :)

I love the grape in this scent. It makes me feel powerful and unexpected. This smelled as I expected, and I was definitely pleased after giving it a few test wears. The only negative I noticed was that this fragrance does not wear as long as the others, so if you are a scent-reliant person (or like to douse yourself in a smell for the day), it may be good to keep the bottle with you, to reapply.

About

Magical and Romantic Perfume Oils ...

Welcome to Sarawen Perfume Art, a small indie perfumery located in Toronto, Canada!

My name is Sara / Sarawen, and I'm the proprietor, scent designer, and artist of Sarawen Perfume Art. Some years ago, I studied fine arts with a degree in Commercial Illustration, but decided to expand my creative endeavours to scent in early 2011! I adore creating unique, romantic, and uncommon perfume blends. Sarawen Perfume Art is a 100% handmade shop run by myself. I love wearing and thinking up new scent combinations, and sincerely hope my perfume creations transport you to a different time and place. Indulge and enjoy!

ABOUT MY PERFUMES - All Sarawen perfumes and ingredients are 100% vegan and cruelty-free! Why vegan? As a vegan myself and animal rights advocate, I believe there's no need for cruel animal-testing or using animal-derived ingredients for products used in scent or beauty! All of the scents are made in small batches and great care is given for each order, hence the 3-5 day processing time.

WHAT DOES VEGAN MEAN? - A vegan is a person who does not eat or use animal ingredients for ethical reasons. It means that there are no animal-derived ingredients in my perfumes, and nothing is animal tested.

GIVING BACK - I donate a proceeds of my sales to animal charities and rescue sanctuaries every month. Please visit me at http://www.sarawen.com/catalog/animal-charity for charities which I'm currently supporting

Refunds and Exchanges
REGARDING FEEDBACK:
I describe fragrances to the best of my ability. However, scent is subjective, and will smell differently for each individual according to their body chemistry. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PURCHASING SAMPLES FIRST. I respectfully ask that you not leave negative Feedback if you received the item(s) but did not like the scents. Rather, base your feedback on the complete shopping experience. Thank you!

REFUNDS and EXCHANGES:
I do NOT give refunds or exchanges unless it is an error on my part (sent wrong item, etc). And I am not responsible for lost parcels due to a wrong address.

However, I'm committed to making sure you enjoy your purchase and your shopping experience with me. If there is a problem with your order, please contact me! I generally resolve any issues on a case-by-case basis.

IMPORTANT:
My perfumes are created to be as sensitive-skin friendly as possible with high-quality, skin safe premium fragrance and essential oils (I have super sensitive skin myself!), but as with all products applied to skin, discontinue use if irritation occurs. By purchasing my products, you agree of the possibility that some people may have allergic or other reactions to such products, and I am not liable should such reactions occur.

** If you are pregnant or nursing, do not purchase. All of my scents contain a certain amount of natural essential oils and resins which may not be suitable in your condition. **

You also agree that they may only be used for your personal use and NOT be sold or redistributed without the written consent of Sarawen Perfume Art.
Additional policies and FAQs
"I'm a blogger/reviewer/writer. Can you give me perfumes so that I can do a review on your product?"

Sorry, I do not give away free product unless I am hosting a giveaway or special promotion. I have been scammed too many times in giving away free items for no review or very little promotion. Any messages asking for free items will be ignored.

"Where is my order?!"

First, please take a look at your order confirmation and make sure the shipping address is correct. If you are in the US - It normally takes only 5-10 business days for small parcels to arrive from Canada. Your parcel may have been delayed due to Customs, and I have no control over that. It does happen, though rarely. Please allow up to one month for arrival. If it does not arrive in a month after the shipping date, contact me and I'll see what can be done!

If you are located overseas: please allow up to 4 weeks of the shipping date for delivery. Certain countries located in the Middle East and Asia may also take up to 6 weeks to arrive. If your item has not arrived by that time, please contact me and I'll see what can be done! Please be courteous and contact me first before opening an Etsy/Paypal dispute.

"One of the bottles is broken in my order!"

I do my best to pack orders as carefully as possible within Small Packet shipping limits, but if this happens, please send me a message and I will look into sending you a new bottle! In some cases I may ask to see a photo of the broken item(s).

"I own a shop and would like to carry your perfumes, do you do consignment?"

If you are interested in carrying Sarawen Perfumes at your brick-and-mortar shop, please message me and we'll chat. ONLY LOCAL (in Toronto or GTA) consignment requests are considered.

"Do you do wholesale? Can I have a wholesale discount?"

Sorry, unless we've previously worked together, I am not offering wholesale or wholesale discounts at this time. I run the the business solely. As such, I'm limited on my production capabilities, and my base material costs do not support wholesale pricing.

"I want to test your perfumes in-person. Do you have a brick-and-mortar store or can I drop by to try your perfume? Can I pick up my order at your location?"

Sorry, at this time I do not have a physical store, and because my studio is in my personal home, I do not allow customer visits. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
