I am so excited to share my new collection with you on September 1st. I just wanted to share a few notes that you might find helpful as you prepare to explore the launch.
September through December is my busiest time of year, and each year I learn a little more about what to expect, which allows me to gauge the best ways to meet the high demand for my work.
My autumn/Halloween launch begins a little bit earlier this year to account for the longer turnaround time to allow plenty of time for orders to reach you in time for October's end, even with the extended turnaround time, provided you order close to the open. The maximum turnaround time will start at 24 business days, but may need to increase in the following weeks. My regular customers know that I always aim to beat the maximum TAT, but that might not be possible during these busy months. Please be sure to plan any time-sensitive orders accordingly. Updated turnaround time will always be posted at the top of the site. If you'd like speedier delivery by the actual post office, consider upgrading your shipping to Priority mail (please note that this does not change the turnaround time on my end).
Due to order volume, I will not be able to offer combined shipping on orders until further notice. If you place multiple orders, each will ship individually and we won’t be able to change or cancel orders. Free samples will also be suspended for the foreseeable future because it's impossible to process thousands of orders in tandem with free samples expeditiously. Free samples have been suspended as of August 29th, because we are already facing extreme order volume and we have run out of stock. We will not be able to respond to email requests asking us to combine, hold, cancel, change orders, or to add free samples to orders.
Since winter's end, I have been preparing for this launch and have hundreds of bottles of each fragrance. While I can't predict how soon they will sell out, I feel fairly confident based on previous years, that I have created enough to last longer than it has in previous years. However, there will not be any restocks, so if something sells out, it will be gone for the season (except for Book Fair, Occult Bookstore, and Antique Books, which will eventually join the permanent collection). That said, Mansion Ghosts and Frog's Breath are extremely limited because I only had limited ingredients. There are just under 50 bottles of both of these fragrances. The limited-edition sample set is also limited to 500 tins.
My monthly ritual oils won't be open for pre-orders for the next few months. Still, I will be making set amounts of new ritual oils, so please make sure you are following Black Baccara social media or are subscribed to our email list to be the first to know when they become available. I have some beautiful blends planned.
Thank you so much for your patronage of my work during my favorite season. I can't wait for you to try this new collection!
