    I can see how it fits what his image is for his company, but I really will miss the beads. That is one more thing that separated Slumberhouse from other perfumers, and it really impressed me and everyone I showed the bottle to. Can't say that this will have that same effect

    It's nice, reflects the new website, the more BDSM sense of the house (imo)

    Great, now I am picturing a glass dildo with real pump spraying action.

    They did look cool, but they really were just there for function more than aesthetics. Now the marble bottles will go for insane vintage prices on eBay!

    I actually like this new bottle better than the old ones ( I have 2 slumberhouse fragrances flou and pear + olive, but in an older bottle version without the stones inside)

    Now all i can do is wait for the Zahd shipment to Indonesia. Hopefully they will arrive safely and soon =)

    Zahd sold out in 12 hours. It was a limited release of 150 (or so) bottles that was presold in October and is just now shipping. No samples, I'm afraid

    What stunning bottles, well done to all concerned!

    I did enjoy the tinkling marbles but inserting them must have been such a chore.

    I find it sad that you decided to post pictures before almost everyone got their bottle. Josh asked me not to post pictures so everyone could be surprised...now the surprise is over. More will get their bottle today. The scent, I predict, will create quite a buzz.

    Well, 12 hours is better than 2 hours. I'll have to be on my guard next time.

    Nope, but don't forget there was a national holiday yesterday so that slowed things down a bit.

    Just to be clear: The pics were posted yesterday with Josh's blessing as he's already started distributing them, so nothing to feel sad about

    Trust me, no backstage information about the line will be released here UNLESS he's on board with it. There's actually a method to this particular moment of madness

    You might not have been able to read any of the information about this (even though it's been discussed here for the last four months or so). Zahd was always going to be a limited release due the unsustainability of the materials (cost / accessibility). It's a fragrance that really cannot be recreated, hence the limited release. Sadly, it looks like you joined the site a month after the announcements were made about it, but there was no real exclusivity for anyone watching this (or other) spaces on the internet related to the line. Emails were sent, twitter advertised it, it was posted on several sites etc.

    This is a small line that runs limited production on some of its scents now and again (all documented on the website) -- it's not a line that mass-produces (outside of the small "permanent" collection), nor is it a line with mass distribution -- largely due to the nature of the materials he uses (extremely rare, extremely costly, extremely unpredictable). For many, that's part of the charm as it exemplifies "indie." So, watch this space for announcements of other limited runs / sign up to the Slumberhouse email list / follow the twitter account -- all of those things will give you open access to these kind of options.

    The only reason this is being discussed here now is because its a scent that people have been waiting since October to try (the notes above should explain why), and only now is it finally arriving on people's doorsteps.

    Josh sent me a nice message on Thursday. In part it said, "Now while I’m not able to get all bottles shipped today (most will go out Monday), a small batch is shipping today and that includes yours…" I don't think he realized Monday was a holiday so I expect most to go out today. Hold tight! The wait is almost over!!!

    Any update/word on if the current or even future waiting list will come into play? Is it remotely possible if someone were to sign up today, they might score a bottle?

    Good question!

    I know the wait list is long (and heavily populated), but once the initial orders are filled, there'll be an evaluation made of what's left. I'd say that if you are on the wait list, keep a close eye on your email.

    Thanks for the additional details, which does help with understanding. I thought Slumberhouse was like any other niche perfumery, making unique and interesting fragrances available to anyone interested. I can understand if certain ingredients are extremely rare or too expensive to use in great measure that it would force a limited run. Now that I know, I'll keep an eye on what Slumberhouse plans to produce in limited quantity like Zahn. Sure would be great if they opened up a store in Manhattan.

    No stores, no major distribution, no ads, no Manhattan HQ! The scents are available at Twisted Lily in Brooklyn, though.

    Wow--one man operation! Amazing what he has achieved. I wonder what his background is all about. I'd heard of Twisted Lily. Now I'm definitely going to visit, knowing that Slumberhouse is represented there. Thanks.

    I've tested Sova today, from a sample I received and all I can say is wow. This stuff is powerful and beautiful. My regret is that it can no longer be purchased. This feels very much like a gourmand to me, very much edible in it's sweetness, almost like candy, but also animalic at the same time. If anyone knows of someone who wants to lighten their collection by one bottle of Sova, send them my way!
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    Sova is fantastic - the epitome of a Fall / "Halloween" fragrance. Hope you can find a bottle!

    Speaking of bottles, is all future production going to use the new bottles?

    Yeah. There'll be switchover coming up real soon.
