    Next time Josh does a limited edition, I think he'd best up the scale just a wee bit. Otherwise, 12 hours will turn into 12 minutes!

    We shall see what direction Josh takes his company... But I for one like the fact that he is a one man show and apparently intends on staying that way. As I understand it, Zhad was a labor of love that he worked on for two years and he was unsure how to release it since it was so limited. It came time for the company brand to create a new image and he needed an infusion of cash, and Zahd was released to that purpose. Isn't it sort of wonderful that he was able to raise the needed cash with Zahd and not have to seek out monies from other people or companies? I think so. In doing so Josh has been able to remain independant! I expect Slumberhouse to continue to use top quality ingredients and also continue to be an independant creative force making scents unlike other perfumers. Anyone that expects less than complete independance and creative freedom for the house may also inadvertantly be asking for compromise in ingredient quality. I'm glad there is one very creative house and proud that it is in the city of Portland. Stay different Josh. There is space in this world for one house called Slumberhouse.

    It's great to see someone choosing their own, very special, path and not bowing to expectation.
    Whatever direction future releases take there will surely be many following with great interest.

    Same here. I was lucky enough to buy one of Josh's last bottles he had. I am archiving mine and using it sparingly. It's delicious.

    This is definitely an interesting model... I don't know if this could be duplicated though, but it is wonderful that he managed to pull it off!

    Also I have to say I find the new bottles absolutely stunning.... classy and edgy at the same time.

    Many companies and start-ups are adopting this model lately with the inception of Kickstarter. Josh just did it on his own really. I enjoy that Josh hasn't sacrificed the quality of materials over time to increase margins in order to obtain new bottles...caps...etc.

    It appears to have been removed from the top navigation. Still visible if you know the file path. I'm guessing there's some editing happening, not entirely sure.

    I think that a fair guess would be that he is updating pictures of his products in the new bottles. Just a guess.

    Possible. I think he said on Twitter that it would take anywhere from 4-6 weeks to get the current stock into the new bottles. Perhaps he does have pictures already prepared though (like, has 4 bottles available to fill with the fragrances to photograph).

    The web store will indeed be down for a few weeks until the new bottles have been fully instituted, so the distributors will be the place to purchase the regular stock until the switchover is complete.

    Yep, and just a heads up, I used Parfum1 to get a bottle of Vikt, but they are running a bit slow and won't have a shipment in for a few days, so if you are looking to get a bottle, you are better off waiting a few days to place an order. I'm not sure if it is a similar situation for other bottles.

    They're still being entered. The last of the shipments did all leave yesterday, so you should get a notification today sometime.

    Quick check - I have seen some vikt become available online so should I grab it come payday? Or is it now been added to the main line of fragrances and I can wait to grab a bottle later ?

    It's a discontinued scent that was re-released in a limited amount last year. It's sold out at Slumberhouse, but there are a handful of bottles remaining through places like Parfum1. If you want a bottle, don't wait another second.

    I searched around and couldn't find anything about them--the glass beads. Why were they included in the bottles? Was the intention for them to help mix up the contents, or more of an aesthetic? I don't have a Slumberhouse fragrance yet... so I'm curious. Are the beads larger than the opening (meaning the bottles were made in a special way with them placed inside before sealing up), or can they come out of the bottle if the top is removed?

    There's a photo for reference below. They were in place I assume to take up some of the 50ml volume as the juice itself was 30ml. Aesthetically, they look nice as well and I'm guessing the opening was larger than the beads.

    Parf1 still has it. Got a backup from them yesterday. My fav scent this winter.

    btw, are Norne, Ore and Jeke still in production or have they gone the way of Vikt?

    It was just a way to keep using the same bottle but the reduce the amount included. The cost of production of these scents is through the roof due to the materials involved, so a couple of years ago it was either reduce the amount or raise the price (he was literally losing money on Sova). This is where the marbles came in.

    The old bottle was just a stock bottle used by a number of companies, and putting the marbles inside was time consuming and a pain. People genuinely liked the aesthetic, but really it was just a way to adjust the volume. The move to the new bottle was a way to increase efficiency, give the line a unique aesthetic, and represent the color of the fragrance in the process (which, if you can't tell, plays a big role in these scents).

    For the most part - however, the marbles reflected more light through the liquid, which gave it a lighter shade. Just look at the picture of Sova above. The top appears noticeably darker.

    The new bottles frame the color even more because it's a wider, flatter surface. It's a feature of the design and it makes the scents seem like a block of color.
