    Did anyone else catch the recent mention of Pear + Olive on Josh's twitter? He says the current rotation of fragrances will be available in the new bottles, starting in about 4-5 weeks (around the start of Spring). With that, Pear + Olive will revert back to the original EDP formula, and will be renamed "Minne."

    Although I didn't catch it, this is indeed happening. The name "Pear + Olive" has always stood out as too descriptive from the rest of the line, and as the (relatively) abstract naming minimize imposed narratives (allowing the wearer to invest the scent with their own interpretation), it was decided to switch this one over. Now, the big question is, how do we pronounce it?

    Although I don't get pickles, I can see why someone would get that association.

    I bought it blindly from the initial limited run he did back in June (before it was made available on the SH website) and was blown away by it. I love the weirdness and the unique take on violet and vetiver. That said, I only wear it every once in a while - probably four times, altogether, so far.

It's peaceful and a little strange too, like a weird green nymph might also be lurking around the pond. It definitely possesses the Slumberhouse quirkiness.
    This is very much what I get, too.

    Yep, and it makes me roll my eyes a little when people say it doesn't smell exactly like pear and olive, so I'm glad the explicitness will be taken out. P+O was actually the one SH offering that proved the most challenging for me to like and is the last bottle I've bought from the line. Now to wait and sea how the lower concentration changes the scent - I didn't get to smell the EdP version.

    It's pronounced "mine-en-nae," obviously.

    You have to stress the 'ne' parts as 'inyea' though.

    Minyea-en-inyea.

    Done.

It's peaceful and a little strange too, like a weird green nymph might also be lurking around the pond. It definitely possesses the Slumberhouse quirkiness. I haven't smelled it in about a month, because I've been studying Vikt….and now Zahd. But like you, I had started with a sample of it and it kept haunting me and calling me back, and then one day the sample was empty, so I ordered a bottle. At the risk of extreme cheesiness, this is sort of what I picture when I smell Mare (bonus nymph included!)
    I love this description of it! Honestly, I've had a hard time with this one -- I really get something too vegetal from it. It's largely vetiver and violet leaf, but as always, the materials are unorthodox and it's spun away from what we normally understand violet to be. My own concern is that there are several scents from the line that I really didn't enjoy at first (although I could appreciate them), but came to love them later.

    It was me he replied to on Twitter :P. I already knew, but it was cool that I was tagged.

    Kere sounds interesting. I think I had a sample of it at some point and passed it along. Anyone remember what it smells like? Also, were the samples like Kere and Iska ever sold by Slumberhouse or just samples of test fragrances...can't quite remember them being sold?

    Kere is a praline, caramel kind of scent, very sweet. I liked it a lot when I wore my little sample, but I can see why it never made a full on release really.

    No, it was discontinued due to the unavailability of materials, sadly. It remains to this day my favorite from him though.

    Possibly! He has some left, but I don't think there's an official 100ml option planned as of right now.

    Aside from the new Vikt, P+O or Zahd, I can't imagine going through any 100mls of Slumberhouse. My 50ml EdP's I think would already last 2 lifetimes...maybe more LOL.

    Still my favorite. Amazing scent. Sort of like a feeling or a place, rather than a fragrance.

    Jeke I could go through easily, and according to Josh Norne gets better with age due to it's ingredients. More importantly, I'm concerned about continued availability.

    I have a friend who bought 200ml of Norne. He's going for a Hulk effect it seems.

    Sova is great and my favorite as well, and I will readily admit that I made a mistake by not buying a bottle of Norne on Black Friday. I hope Josh does it again this year.

    Totally. Same for me. Memories of my grandmother's farm in Northern Illinois during the fall months. Animals in the barn, hay, old wood, fires and leather goods hanging next to old rusted machinery.

    Lol deadidol. Your buddy probably smells like one of the guys on Axemen (lumberjack show.) That's a ton of juice. I understand people stocking up with limited availability or possible reworkings. Makes sense.

    I have my Zahd bottles in front of me.

    A co-worker received it so he brought it to me and was like "you have a package from Slumberhouse - that sounds familiar. What is it? I've heard of it before." So I thought the only way he would've heard of it was from me receiving packages before... I had Vikt delivered here and probably something else before that. So I just left it at "it's a company that makes perfume."

    Then, a colleague I share the office with asked me about it so I gave him a brief background on Zahd and on Slumberhouse. He asked if they had samples and I offered to bring him some... I just have to think of what to expose him to as he's been loyal to Curve since he was a teenager.

    Yes - still waiting patiently for my bottle and shipping notification, whichever comes first.

    I believe there are also other folks overseas who haven't received theirs either.

    I'm hoping and praying a bottle of Sova turns up. I'm half tempted to beg one of ya'll for a sample of Zahd, but since it can't be had, I probably better not. I really need to test the ones that are actually available1

    ditto on the Sova. That stuff is gone. Why I grabbed a little extry of the Vikt, as it is done too.

    Just a polite reminder that we don't ask for or offer samples, etc., in discussion threads (other than in the designated 'give-away" threads for offering) as it's considered to be Trading & sets a bad example to new members, some of whom 'try it on' as soon as they join up.
    There's a Marketplace 'Wanted' section.

    You're very kind notwhatimsaying, but I really think I'll end up jonesing for it so best to not try it and then pine away. That's the reason I posted my comment Lpp, not that I'm asking. More as a bit of humor. But I do thank you for the kind offer. Very generous.
