9/06/2009 - Order Placed
18/06/2009 - CnS Notification
26/06/2009 - Oils Arrived!
ETA: ...mostly.
Okay, guys, the oils have arrived today, and it looks like everything for the decant circle's there, except Labores Solis. I've dropped the Lab an e-mail and will update here as soon as I hear back from them; I'll also be commenting individually to people affected to let them know.
27/06/2009 - CnS for Labores Solis
8/07/2009 - Labores Solis arrived!
11/07/2009 - All orders I've been paid for shipped.

There's this update, it looks shiny, and... well, I've been itching to run a decant circle lately. Both decanting and mailing packages out make me happy. And there's Smoky Moon, and a couple of scents for astrological events, and a couple for the Nile, and a few based on lawn ornaments of all things... Good fun, you know?

So. The return of the decant circle. And as usual, I'm happy to make it a group order when I'm ordering from the Lab.

Fiddly details
The circle is now open. On June the 9th, I will place the order. I expect the bottles'll be in to me by late June and mailed out within the week.
All prices in $US.
Please pay via Paypal; [ profile] torrain at rogers dot com.
For up to twenty imps, shipping in Canada is $2.50; for the US, $3.00; for elsewhere, $4.50.
For an additional twenty imps, it's an extra $1 to Canada and the US, and an extra $2 for elsewhere. Bottles count as six imps for the purpose of calculating shipping.
If you prefer, I can mail imps (or bottles, should you order them) as a Small Packet, which has coverage, extensive packaging, and delivery confirmation. This shipping covers any imps you get and any number of bottles. It runs:
* $7 to $10 for Canada, depending on province
* $7.50 for the States
* $9 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. Imps from the Lab are the same, minus the plumber's tape (I've never had a problem with a Lab imp leaking, and so figure that there's no call to tape their imps, but I'll do it if you ask me to).
It's $3.25 for an imp. If you want an imp of all nine scents, it's $27. (no longer available)

I can't think of anything else; if you can, please ask!

The Oils!
Smoky Moon 2009 - Decanted!

Soft sandalwood, nicotiana, and velvety orris drifting over lustrous pale musks, stephanotis, elemi, and cyclamen.

The Feast for the Greatly Revered Ones - Decanted!

Cacao mixed with ground maize, agave wine, and octli, mixed with herbs and spices native to central Mexico.

Labores Solis
On July 22, we will be experiencing a total solar eclipse. This is the Labores Solis: the sun’s rays expressed through frankincense, amber, heliotrope, saffron, and chamomile, crossed with Luna’s Artemisias, manifesting in darkness.

Hi there! If you've still got space, I'd love imps of Smoky Moon, Labores Solis, and The Festival of Anuket; shipping to the US.

(Since I don't think I've run across you before, my feedback page is here (
Tuesday, June 16th, 2009 01:48 pm (UTC)
Not a problem! (It's $12.75; $9.75 for oils and $3 for shipping.) And no, I don't think we've dealt before; thank you for the feedback heads-up. :)
Wednesday, June 17th, 2009 11:52 pm (UTC)
Money sent! Hope I did everything right. Thank you!
Thursday, June 18th, 2009 01:43 pm (UTC)
You did. :) Thanks very much.
Friday, June 26th, 2009 11:45 pm (UTC)
Just a quicknote: the oils came in today, but Labores Solis was missing. I've contacted the Lab, and will let you know as soon as I hear back. In the meantime, unless you tell me otherwise, I'll be waiting until it comes in to send your decants.
Sunday, July 12th, 2009 06:37 pm (UTC)
Hey! Just a quick note to let you know that your imps went out yesterday. :)
Sunday, July 12th, 2009 07:55 pm (UTC)
Awesome, thanks for the heads up!
Tuesday, June 16th, 2009 06:01 pm (UTC)
Hello, I stumbled across your thread and saw you're in Canada like I am. I'm interested in a decant of Plastic Pink Flamingo.

I'm new to this, and pardon me for asking a few questions. Is there a minimum order amount, and do you charge paypal fees if a credit card is used? How much is in a decant? Thank you for your help. I'd be happy to message you links to my accounts on Etsy or Ebay if you'd like to see feedback.
Tuesday, June 16th, 2009 06:32 pm (UTC)
Questions are no problem. :) There's no minimum order amount, and I don't charge PayPal fees. Decants are just under 1ml; I order imp-sized vials from Pilot Vials and fill them. (I can toss up a picture of some of my past decants when I get home, if you like.)

Feel free to message me a place to see feedback, and let me know if you're sure you want the PPF or if you'd rather wait for a decant picture. Either's good. :)
Wednesday, June 17th, 2009 02:33 am (UTC)
Message sent. :)

I shall be sending you the $5.75 using Paypal tomorrow.
Thursday, June 18th, 2009 01:43 pm (UTC)
Message and PayPal rec'd. :) Thanks!
Monday, June 29th, 2009 08:20 pm (UTC)

cns - woot!!! :)
Sunday, June 28th, 2009 05:15 pm (UTC)
Interesting timing that you posted a reminder of this circle on [ profile] bpal_canada just now - I'd almost ordered when you first posted it but held off because there was only one I really, really wanted plus one I sort-of-wanted, and I thought I'd feel silly ordering just one or two. Plus, money's been tight so I've been cutting back on non-essential spending.

But I keep thinking about it and just yesterday was thinking "I should have ordered that cool-sounding Aztec one! I wonder if she still has any spaces left... No, probably too late."

And now, not only do you post a reminder, but you have slots left for The Feast for the Greatly Revered Ones! Clearly it was meant to be. :-)

Also kind of tempted by Labores Solis - that was the "sort-of-wanted" one I referred to. And actually, given that that one's delayed, this could work out well. I don't have anything in my PayPal account right now, but am expecting a payment from a client soon, so if you want to put me down for The Feast for the Greatly Revered Ones and Labores Solis, I should be able to send payment before Labores Solis actually shows up and gets decanted.
Sunday, June 28th, 2009 07:33 pm (UTC)
Whoot! Understand, glad to be part of your serendipity, and the oils are now reserved for you. :) I'll drop you a reminder note when LS comes in.
Sunday, July 12th, 2009 06:45 pm (UTC)
Hey! Just a quicknote--Labores Solis came in, but unfortunately my last three decanting imps broke. I've spoken to someone local who's expecting an order from Pilot Vials within a day or so, and she's very kindly agreed to let me snag an empty imp from her, so I should be able to get your order ready in a day or so. Just wanted to let you know.
Friday, July 17th, 2009 06:20 am (UTC)
OK - just sent payment.
Saturday, July 18th, 2009 12:42 am (UTC)
Awesome, thanks.

Uhm... my entire home is currently filled with industrial-strength driers and they're coming back tomorrow to tear out a bit of the walls, so I think I might not be able to get your order out until Monday or Tuesday. I'm really very sorry.
Tuesday, August 11th, 2009 11:05 pm (UTC)
Right. I'm very sorry, I just realized I hadn't sent it.

I'd like to refund your money, still send you Feast and Labores, and if there's any other scent in the circle you'd like an imp of I'll do what I can; I ffeel terrible about this going unnoticed for so long.
