    Default New Slumberhouse Fragrance: Sådanne

    Hey all,

    A new Slumberhouse scent, Sådanne, will be available this weekend through Alder+Co with wider distribution to follow. This one's more aligned to Pear+Olive or Eki, so think lighter and brighter rather than heavier and challenging. More details to come soon, but I wanted to at least give a heads-up to anyone interested in the line.

    Cheers!

    Definitely doesn't fit the bill of the typical Slumberhouse; but I would expect it to be super weird, thought-provoking and intriguing like all of the other creations while using the finest materials.

    I told Josh I would not "spill the beans" on this release, but now that it is mentioned...
    Josh told me he was sending me a sample and I should have it in a day or two since I live so close. I will report my amateur impresions when I get it.

    Man, I really need to talk to Josh again...he hasn't really been responding to my emails.

    Anyway, this sounds cool (name wise) and will almost definitely be a buy for me (blind)....unless I can manage to get a sample soon :P.

    From the Slumberhouse website ... and it seems as if he has several of his standard fragrances back in stock, all at a new pricepoint of $160. No mention of bottle sizes.

    The bottles are 30ml. It's essentially the bottle that was developed for Zahd with some further tweaks and a custom box.

    To a Scandinavian that name looks odd for a fragrance, as it means "like that" or "the thing I mentioned earlier". I guess it was picked to look cool and unusual without really knowing the meaning of the word.

    Knowing Josh it was probably intentional. Not sure of what intention exactly, but I doubt he randomly picked a foreign word. That being said none of his other works have names that mean anything literal (outside of P+O I guess).

    When did he raise prices again? I remember Zahd being more expensive but I thought that was due to the ingredients. Now it seems the new one is also $160 instead of like $125 like before .

    I'd wager a guess that it's the new bottles and box. Honestly I think I'd rather have my $35 instead of the new bottles if that's the case.

    Obviously there's a concentration involved, but there's also a bit of a push to move away from labeling things in such a manner. Ideally, the scent would be designed with its performance well-considered, but once people start to sample this, you'll have a better sense of what to expect. In other words, some scents will be designed with a closer, more intimate wear in mind whereas other might radiate a little more. Does that make sense? I'm not sure I'm being clear.

    I think the meaning is generally known, but the names are also chosen to minimize imposed narratives and to allow the reading to imprint his/her own interpretation onto the scent. It's a pretty specific strategy.

    For the materials involved, the prices have always been suspiciously low and the profit margin is even lower. Compare 30ml of Slumberhouse to other indies / small brands such as Matriarch / Aftelier / Bogue etc. and you'll get the picture. But yes, having custom / professional packaging as opposed to the off-the-shelf bottle of the past (that bottle is used by a ton of lines) is certainly more expensive. When someone takes pride in what they do, they certainly have the right to present their work in a way that they see fit or that puts them onto the same playing field as others. Sadly, for indie operations that aren't privately funded, such expenses are unavoidable without losing money.

    Yes! I love this approach. I feel that people (me included) tend to get too hung up on the concentration of a fragrance and adjust their expectations accordingly. The composition is the composition as the perfumer envisions it (especially for artisanal brands), and that's all that should matter in a work - we either agree with the vision for that particular piece of work, as consumers, or we don't.

    I mean, I understand the reasoning behind it, but it just kind of sucks is all. Slumberhouse used to be by far and away my best bang for buck. I mean, $100 for 30mL of extrait (50mL at one time) was nuts. Naturally it should have been more, and now it is, but when we start getting into these price points it gets harder for me to swing purchasing every bottle as a college kid with essentially no income.

    As stupid as it sounds complaining over a small increase, it is enough for me not to just blind buy this. I'll have to get a sample and see if it is worth saving up for.

    The operative phrase there is "was nuts." It's just not so nuts of a deal anymore. I wish I'd been lucky enough to have been aware of Slumberhouse back in the good ole days and had snagged some of those relative cheapies that are no more (especially Baque and Kote).

    It's not stupid to be concerned about a price increase, but I'd rather see a price increase that I can clearly see the reasoning for, and not an arbitrary one as some of the luxury brands out there like to hit their customers with.

    I know I'll get use out of the reduced footprint of the bottles. If a better profit margin enables Josh to acquire even better/rarer raw materials to work with, all the best.
