Order placed: October 20, 2008
Order shipped: October 27, 2008
Order received: November 3, 2008
All orders mailed: November 9, 2008


So an unmitigated bastard of my acquaintance (hi Jack!) pointed out to me that there was this company that was selling limited edition scents themed along a Wild West ghost town for Hallowe'en.

Those of you who have seen me play Deadlands, and talk about Deadlands, and bounce up and down when the topic comes up, can probably guess how well I took this.

Fiddly details
I'm placing the order on October the 24th (sooner if the bottles fill up before then) Monday October the 20th. I haven't ordered from Violette Market before; however, I must emphasize that the Diablo Canyon line comes down in the first week of November and I cannot guarantee there will be time to receive and test your samples before the line comes down.
All prices in $US.
Paypal's probably easiest all around; [livejournal.com profile] torrain at rogers dot com, and if you're using Paypal, please add $0.50. If you're paying me in Canadian cash, I'll e-mail you and let you know what it comes to once I've placed the order.
For up to twenty imps, shipping in Canada is $2; for the US, $2.50; for elsewhere, $4.
For up to an additional twenty imps, it's an extra $1 to Canada and the US, and an extra $2 for elsewhere.
If you can meet me and arrange for a pickup (Ottawa), there's no shipping charge.
Decants mailed in their traditional plumber's tape/plastic baggie/bubble wrap/padded mailer outfit.
$3 for a 1ml vial decant.
If you want a decant of each scent except the Cathouse Kitties, it's $33 for the twelve of them.
If you want a decant of each of the Cathouse Kitties, it's $22 for the eight of them.
If you want a decant of each scent, it's $55 for the twenty of them.
I really only have BPAL feedback. [livejournal.com profile] bpal_feedback's here. BPAL forum feedback here.
That's all my standard stuff. However, because something like June's decant circle will *break me*, I'm conducting this one in a rather more restrained fashion, as follows:

(1) No half-imps.
(2) If at least two imps aren't ordered out of a bottle, I will not order that bottle. Given the stunning response, I'm going to place the order on Monday, October 20th.
(3) With that aside, on to the scents!

The Oils of Diablo Canyon!

Bag of Bones
Two very dry ambers, scorched-sweet sandalwood, aged vanilla husk, faint clouds of dusty desert air, golden spices, one smiling skull, and one lone bullet.

Ghost Town
A distant bonfire, wind-dried red and brown autumn leaves, tart orchard apple, smoldered Cathouse stage, the haunting wail of a ghost train, and the diabolic laughter of the dead softened by a touch of sweet white cranberry.

Ms. Dolly's Frock Shop
Sassy, spicy and a little bit sinful-- French white gardenias, pink carnation, thick creamed milk, clove resin, and a hearty dose of sex appeal in a flash of sweet black pepper.

All except Cathouse Kitties, please! :D
Saturday, October 18th, 2008 08:48 pm (UTC)
Done! $33 for imps, $4 for shipping, $0.50 for PayPal--that's $37.50. :)
Saturday, October 18th, 2008 09:52 pm (UTC)
i'd like both of the McVey's, miss kitty's cat house, Bonnie rue, Dani doe, and Scarlet foster. And I'd hope we can arrange a physical transfer of items and money.
Saturday, October 18th, 2008 10:59 pm (UTC)
6 imps at $3 = $18 US. Physical transfer shouldn't be a problem. :)
Monday, October 27th, 2008 03:43 pm (UTC)
Just an update: comes to $22.52 Canadian.
Monday, October 27th, 2008 04:45 pm (UTC)
Kay. When would you like the cash by? And what's the general status of the order?
Tuesday, October 28th, 2008 12:07 pm (UTC)
As soon as conveniently possible; I know we don't run into each other much, but if we could schedule something for a week from now or so it'd be good...

I actually got notice from Violette Market last night that the package went out yesterday afternoon! :D
Tuesday, October 28th, 2008 08:14 pm (UTC)
Sure! what time/day is good for you? i'm free thursday evenings and fridays after 4pm...and my saturdays are getting easier.
Monday, November 10th, 2008 12:50 pm (UTC)
I'm done decanting your imps! E-mail me and we'll arrange a time for pickup. :)
Saturday, October 18th, 2008 11:44 pm (UTC)
One imp each of Bag of Bones, Diablo Canyon, Diablo Skull, Ghost Town, and
Miss Dani Doe please.

Pay you at sushi on Monday?
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 01:02 am (UTC)
I won't know what the conversion rate is until I place the order; I can guess or you can wait.

$15 for the imps. Do you want me to hold it for you or mail it to you?
Monday, October 20th, 2008 04:18 am (UTC)
I'm cool with you guessing - feel free to round up a bit too, as you do save me shipping by graciously holding onto them for me until I'm in town! If you're alright with it I'd prefer for you to hold it for me - I'll be back for a bit in December. Let me know how much monies I should bring to dinner for you. :)
Monday, October 20th, 2008 02:57 pm (UTC)
I can hold it, no problem. I'm guessing $18.33; call it $18.50. :)
Monday, November 10th, 2008 12:50 pm (UTC)
Just a heads-up; your imps are ready. See you in December?
Monday, November 10th, 2008 09:31 pm (UTC)
WOOP! Thankies! Yup, see you in December. :D
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 01:51 am (UTC)
I kinda want the last imp of Sheriff Lonestar......but I can't see the point of having you ship just one out. >_<
Meh.
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 03:21 am (UTC)
If you decide you're interested, I am absolutley happy to ship just one. I like mailing stuff.
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 05:03 am (UTC)
Okay. If someone drops Ms Kitty's Cathouse, I'll take it too. If not, I'll just snag the Sheriff. :P
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 05:19 am (UTC)
Cool-cool. $3 imp, $2.50 shipping, $0.50 damnable PayPal = $6. :)
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 04:54 pm (UTC)
[livejournal.com profile] rachel2205 didn't take Ms. Kitty's Cathouse; you confirm, and I'll put you down for it. (Is very cautious about triple-confirming people's orders.)
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 05:07 pm (UTC)
Sounds good to me! Will PP you on Payday.
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 05:34 pm (UTC)
Th'rt awesome. :) It'll be $9 US.
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 04:40 am (UTC)
ARGH

....everything except the Kitties and the Frock Shop, please. *faceplant*
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 05:00 am (UTC)
$33 + $2 + $0.50 comes to $35.50. :)
Monday, October 27th, 2008 03:45 pm (UTC)
(Addendum: Comes to $44.42 Canadian.)
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 02:38 pm (UTC)
Aww, you held me slots! I'm gonna take a look at my paypal balance and work out which I can afford :)
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 03:46 pm (UTC)
Right, a very short list since I shouldn't spend too much money!

Bag of Bones
Two very dry ambers, scorched-sweet sandalwood, aged vanilla husk, faint clouds of dusty desert air, golden spices, one smiling skull, and one lone bullet.


Diablo Skull
Dusty vanilla sugar from the General Store, smoky caramel, dark coffee, sweet cocoa, blonde tobacco, rich brown sugar, blue musk, cedarwood, and dry desert spices.

Marty (Magic Fingers) McVay
Smokey vanilla, golden resins, sweet vanilla tea spiced with cinnamon, and dirty white amber.

Miss Dani Doe, The Cathouse Kitties

You make that correctly! :)

Diablo Canyon
Diablo Canyon Cemetary
Ghost Town
Ms. Dolly's Frock Shop
Miss Dani Doe, The Cathouse Kitties
Miss Julia Star, The Cathouse Kitties

Edited 2008-10-19 06:28 pm (UTC)
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 06:30 pm (UTC)
It is, assuming local pickup and Canadian cash. :)
Sunday, October 19th, 2008 06:34 pm (UTC)
I can do paypal, as always, if you'd like. And yes, I'll pick them up locally, although I'm gone for half of November so you might have to hold them for a little while. :)
Monday, October 20th, 2008 02:58 pm (UTC)
Actually, if you could PayPal (even though that'd make it $21.50 US), I'd really appreciate it. And I don't mind holding them. :)
Monday, November 10th, 2008 12:51 pm (UTC)
All your imps have been decanted. E-mail me and we can arrange a pickup time?
Monday, October 20th, 2008 09:35 pm (UTC)
Money sent :)
