    That's great! It's a very nice outfit and very reasonably priced as well. Here's another discussion on the brand http://www.basenotes.net/threads/273218-Slumberhouse

    I get the impression is that Slumberhouse is a very small outfit. Josh said in one of his emails, "I really hope you enjoy the Vikt. I believe it to be the finest batch of the stuff I've created to date. Almost wanted to keep this (small) batch for myself. Enjoy it - if you don't please let me know." Why not email Josh and find out the availability? [email protected]

    PS: Has anyone tried their Amber oil Private Reserve scent? It was in their page almost 2 months ago, now I think it's gone, saying they'll come out with a new batch later this year.

    I have never tried that one, but like I said, email Josh. (See above.) He indicated to me that he has a number of things resting and will release them later. He will reply in a day or two. Great customer service!

    Agreed all around. Very personal and accessible to customers. I'm impressed all around with what I've experienced so far and am looking forward to what will come out of Slumberhouse.

    Absolutely, this is a well done gourmy. Thierry Mugler could learn a thing or two from Slumberhouse.


    A few hours in I had the urge to spray another one of my inbound packages from today, I hit the same arm with Rose 31.

    he also sent me 3 other samples, Jeke, Rume and one called Brosse?


    I can't find anything on Brosse, am I spelling it wrong or is it possibly new?

    I bought the Vikt and like it a lot. Jeke is good, too. Don't like the Grev so much. I'd be curious to hear about the Brosse and Rume.

    It says...

    "30ml / $90 / strength: extrait @ 40%

    Im so proud to present this perfume called Brosse. This first batch is available in a very small quantity (a much larger 2nd batch is now underway and should be available in early March) and samples are available as well.....

    ....Brosse is a deep, spicy, warm, animalic fragrance. It was created under very unique circumstances and I cannot be any more proud of the final result."

    I ended up getting a set of samples myself (Jeke, Vikt, Grev, Rume, and Ore), and so far I'm liking Vikt and Jeke the most.

    At first sniff, I'd say that Rume is accurately described on the site. Maybe the hazelnut note is throwing me off, but I'm reminded of a friend's treasured collection of BPAL Pumpkin Patch fragrances - rich, autumnal, comfortably dark, and not overly gourmand. I may have to give it a full wear even though I usually hate gourmands.

    That is strange. I just sent an email to that address about fifteen minutes ago and it wasn't returned. I know this is like asking "is there gas in it" or "did you turn it on" but maybe check the address you emailed to?

    Not sure if this is much consolation, but I have always had great response and service from the guys there. Yes, please let us know what you find out!

    I emailed Slumberhouse at the address in the post just above this an hour ago and it has not been returned. And yesterday I got a small package with samples of two new fragrances that I have yet to try. This is a very small operation, probably from his house. Sometimes a bit slow but always gets back with you. Sometimes his batches are so very small and he takes time to let them mature. I would suggest trying again to email them.

    I emailed earlier this afternoon and heard back tonight, so I'm not sure why some of the emails are being returned. I used the address on the website. Like Akahina said, they're a small operation but they always get back with you. At least that has been my experience. So, the email still works and Slumberhouse is alive and well. Hopefully you're able to get through, Birdboy and Alfarom. Keep trying. My bottle of Brosse is supposed to arrive tomorrow. Can't wait!

    OK, my bad here. When I click their "contact" icon ( I was unable to locate a printed address anywhere on their site) a microscopic e-mail address does show up in a tiny little box at the bottom of the page on my browser which disappears the moment I try and move my mouse down there to copy it, and in my attempts to memorize the thing I just got it wrong. On my sister's computer (an Apple) apparently something larger comes up, and she is able to e-mail directly, so I apologize (Josh, to you too if you are reading this) for the false alarm.

    I sent off for their full line of samples, and am looking forward to seeing what they are up to. As others mentioned, their total production seems very limited at this point in time, so I suspect those who purchase full bottles will have something that few others have.

    I opened the package I just got and Brosse was one of them, so I quickly opened it and applied a dab. First time smelling this and I have never smelled anything like this. So many notes and things going on in this one. Deep with an old cold church kind of feeling and at the same time warm and cozy. Not sure of the silage on this as I have only used a tiny sample, but I don't care. This is one I want for me.

    Thanks for the impressions of Brosse, guys. I blind bought this one and it should be here today. Crazy, I know, but based on your current faves, Akahina, I think I'll be glad I did. I like Rume, Jeke, and Vikt, and will likely get them all over the course of the next year. And there's another coming called Miel that is an amazing honey/tobacco/black tea dominant scent. He made a small batch this past year and said he's working on another, and I will be buying more than I'll ever need in a lifetime, I'm sure.
