    Default Ganache Parfums - Going Out of Sale

    It seems Ganache Parfums is closing its doors March, 15. They are having a BOGO sale in addition to most of their products being discounted already.
    Most of their offerings are in the Gourmand family but they seem to have a few non-gourmand fragrances.

    Wow! This house didn't last long at all. Thanks for info.

    To be honest, I've never even heard of them until I read the Fragrantica article today. I'm not a big fan of gourmand fragrances but I found two that seem interesting, Tea & Tobacco and Tobacco Lush. They were both marked down to $25 from $55 and with the BOGO sale I got them both for a total of $25, plus shipping was free.

    Is there a code? Because I added two bottles to the cart, but it didn't show one free.

    Thanks! I think I got the last Tea & Tobacco. Also ordered Sandia because I like melon. Hopefully it isn’t too sweet...

    Is this brand's fragrance worth purchasing? I don't know too much about them. Do you equate them to run of the mill, or are they distinctive in what they offer? thanks.

    I got a sample set from them, Ganache .
    Nice little box, ok sample sprayers .
    Got it in decent shipping time.
    I also ordered the Lemon Eclair , which was in horrible shipping time.
    Over a month.
    It came in a plain mailer
    https://www.staples.com/6-Bubble-Mai...xoCWccQAvD_BwE
    No wrap around it. Just placed in the mailer and sent.
    No note saying sorry about the delay, or anything .
    I sent a couple emails beforehand asking about it's whereabouts , politely ,
    but never got a reply.
    When it finally arrived , I was a little confused about the mailer with a glass perfume bottle in it ,
    but was happy just to get the product , until I opened it up.
    The sticker/label was slapped on crooked , and the bottle had a small chip in it !
    Pushing that all aside I went ahead and sprayed it , that's when I got upset.
    The scent was familiar to me, even though it was faint, and I was happy for a VERY BRIEF MOMENT ,
    for not even 3 minutes or so after that, the scent dropped to almost nothing.
    Sent emails again, no reply .
    I heard people rave about this, that's why I bought it .
    I think that reviewer was sent bottles that had good concentrations ,
    but mine was something that was an after I got the money upfront orders filled deal.
    Here's some reviews from our basenotes counterpart ;
    https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/...air-44580.html
    I've sampled a number of Demeter's and found them to be far better than ganache/haught.
    Try sampling some of them .
    OR

    Take a look at what's going on at
    Indigo Parfumes Botique
    Up to 33 to 50% OFF select items.
    I've got money aside for hopefully i profumi ddi firenze's .
    I just got Brezza di Mare from Twisted Lily not that long ago and I love it .
    Yes, it drops to a skin scent , but it's very beautiful.
    Something nice to wear to the movies
    Anyways, here's Indigo's link
    https://www.indigoperfumery.com/prod...-9-and-3-10-19

    Oh, don't worry about missing ganache , for I an sure it will reappear under a different guise .
    Sometimes things can get tough and rough . Wishing Jareke better luck ahead.

    Wow! That is a lot of interesting stuff, I wonder if this was a sales tactic like those electronic stores in NYC that are going out of sale in perpetuity.
    I saw the article on Fragrantica, and that's how I learned of the "Going Out of Business Sale".
    As for the "Mylife" bio, I'm not really convinced one way or another, as they can be notoriously inaccurate.
    Thanks for all the info JBS1!

    It's funny you should say that... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmS57IecdEY

    I grabbed a couple. Will just have to see. Worst case scenario, maybe I can use them for layering. Best case scenario, I was really looking for these scent profiles.

    I saw the article on Fragrantica, and that's how I learned of the "Going Out of Business Sale".
    As for the "Mylife" bio, I'm not really convinced one way or another, as they can be notoriously inaccurate.
    Thanks for all the info JBS1!
    The MyLife was more for an address indentifier .
    Matches other profiles .
    I think the Jareke honestly tried to start a business a couple times.
    Found out here's one way to unload and raise capital.
    I'm saying this for it's happened a few times .
    Business do do that.
    I think it's become a convenient way for others,
    and some when it's a closing , if it's become an easy method,
    the care and concern for quality dwindles.
    The Lemon Eclair I received was in NOWAY AT ALL NATURAL.
    The excuse that he had to change his formula because he used all natural ingredients,
    thus poor performance, or I should say no performance, is BS.
    I am not saying that everything that comes from Ganache is bad.
    The samples I got , some, were decent.
    What I am saying is that it's become a learned pattern .
    I do wish the very best for Jereke and I do hope he does well someday.
    What I am saying is that there are other deals out there that are just as good .
    Try sampling Demeter.
    Look at the prices at Indigo.
    Don't rush out and buy something just because you feel you're going to miss out on something.
    I am not slamming this company.
    I didn't like the no replies to my emails.
    I didn't like the plain mailer with no wrap,
    but most of all I didn't like what I received for $40 bucks.
    I paid $25 for a 50ml of D&G's The One EDP right here on Basenotes.
    For $40 you can get some very nice decants here on Basenotes too.
    I also didn't like that when I emailed Ganache after I got my bottle I didn't receive a reply.
    I imagine for most buyers things will work out well ,
    and I hope they do.
    I was one of the ones that Iit didn't work out well.

    I could imagine a fragrance shop like that. I thought this was an EDP? It is my friend! Says right here... Eau De Perform. After you get your nose checked, get your eyes checked. Read the fine print and smell the roses.

    @JBS1

    Points well taken. I think in the other thread it says they're a very small staff. In that kind of situation where people have to wear too many hats, little things can suffer a lot or a lot of things can suffer a little. Some bottles and labels look good while others do look like they were hi-fived on at that last minute.

    I'm optimistic though.

    I am optimistic for you also.
    I understand the small online shop.
    That said, it doesn't excuse poor communications .
    I am sorry for the delay sir, here's a few free samples,
    or a discount code included, but mainly replying .
    I hope everything turns out well for everyone.

    Eesh. Fingers crossed. At least it was very cheap but even so, it doesn't feel good to get ripped off. We shall see.

    Based on the processing time (in business days) I could be looking at the 18th as the latest that anything is going out. I've never ordered any handmade/made-to-order fragrances (and that's the kitchen sink caveat), but I am waiting on some handmade/MTO shoes and they're going to take a month right off the top so I just try to forget. But I did have a situation one time I ordered something (shoes) and nothing was sent so I blasted that company on social media until I got a miraculous 2day Fedex airmail.

    I obtained a bottle of their Cheat Day in a swap long ago. It's really powerful and the notes are represented well. I never thought it was all natural, nor do I care about that.

    It took over a month to get my bottle .
    It was around Christmas 2017 when I ordered it.
    My thought was that he took the money then ordered ingredients ,
    or he took other peoples money to make mine .
    Regardless though, I did receive it.
    It wasn't billed as Made to Order back then ; I just thought that's what might have been going on,
    getting the money up front
    Even if that's what was going on , you should still send emails to the people whom trust you
    and let them know there are delays.
    I understand a small company making up batches , and how that could take extra time,
    but sending out emails doesn't.
    Copy/paste click send
    They're not hand written letters with stamps.

    Mine didn't seem all natural either , but it was billed as such.
    That was his disclaimer about the poor performance of a bunch of his work afterwards though.
    There's a link above about all that I provided above .
    My point is that it's a bit deceptive and it's been done before by him.
    It's really to bad too, for the samples I got earlier that year were sent in a nice little box,
    and some were decent.
    I wish him the best of luck in his next ventures .
    You will get you perfumes , but I might suggest you send a few emails asking about there whereabouts.
    Be nice about , I was .
    I did eventually receive it.
    here's his email address
    Jarek@Ganacheparfums.net

    It states on their website that
    They are taking a break to catch up on orders
    Be back on 3/11/2019
    Here's the link to view that https://ganacheparfums.com/

    Seems like they are doing well if they are that far behind.

    Well, this is interesting. Received a very long email from the perfumer about the order. A lot of personal detail here. It appears my order is on the way.
    -----------

    I wanted to take a moment to give an update about a few things. I know nobody likes to read long emails so in the spirit of brevity, I have broken the email up into sections so people can skip to the sections that interest them most.

    Order Status Updates.

    Thank you so very much to everyone who placed an order. I apologize that things have taken so long to process. I’ve had a few issues with the shipping station due to the large number of orders we have processed exceeding their capacity to handle the number of packages. Unfortunately, this led to a group of packages being over looked and left sitting for over a week. And to add to the misfortune I was in the hospital for a few days, so I did not catch it. I am all caught up with orders now and I have switched to using a courier service as opposed to using the shipping station. I know a lot of people have questions about their order status. And while I would like to email each person individually to give a status update there is no way I can accomplish that and still process orders. So, I am sending a group email to give an update about orders. The information is listed below:

    Orders Number 1932-2071 were picked up by the courier today and you should be able to see movement on the packages either Sunday or Monday depending on the time the packages are entered into the USPS tracking system.

    Orders Numbered 2033-2170 will ship out on Wednesday March 20, 2019 and you should be able to see movement on those packages by Thursday, March 21, 2019.

    For all USA orders shipped via USPS first class mail I will email you directly with expected package arrival times.

    I apologize again for the delay and I appreciate your patience and understanding.

    Canceled Orders

    To everyone who's order I canceled too abruptly, I sincerely apologize. I have been working very hard to process all orders as quickly as possible. I appreciate every order and I am truly grateful that people decided to give Ganache Parfums a chance. I have been handmaking and shipping out anywhere between 50-150 products a day.
    I get flooded with emails daily from people who are very upset because their order does not ship out within a few days and they make all kinds of threats. I have met a lot of very great people during this process and unfortunately, I have also met a few people who when upset want to make you feel just as bad as they feel. After reading 15-20 emails a day from people with this mindset it gets to be a bit much. After a while I became overwhelmed and I just stopped reading the emails and refunding the orders anytime I saw order status in the title. I apologize again.

    Health Updates

    Thank you everyone for your concern and support of my speedy recovery. I wanted to explain a little more about my health situation for those who may be interested. As some of you may know in my day job I work as a social worker/administrator and as such I have trained myself to work long hours, not get enough rest and ignore my bodies physical limitations. This has resulted in my becoming clinically morbidly obese, developing high blood pressure and becoming pre-diabetic. Although these are not serious health concerns on the spectrum of things, they are serious enough that if I don't make my health a priority now bad things can happen. The good news is with the right care these conditions are completely reversible.

    What's Next for Ganache

    I have received a lot of love and support from so many people and I promise to personally respond to each email sent once the orders have all been shipped out.

    Because of the love and support I have received I have decided not to close the business completely. However, I also can't say with total confidence when I will reopen or what things will look like once I do reopen. I do have one last collection I will be releasing sometime in the next few days to weeks. This is going to be a very limited-edition collection as I am going to pre-make the fragrances and so the supply will be limited to the stock on hand.

    I will create a blog post and Instagram announcement giving more about this collection next week.


    Best Wishes,
    Jarek

    I am sorry to heat about Jerek's health . I truly am.

    Run numbers , 2170-1932=248.
    Hand made 50 to 150 perfumes a day.
    Median , 100 .
    248/100= 2 1/2 days.
    Then you have USPS shipping .
    Printed labels like Stamps dotcom
    Depends on how and if Jarek is using boxes or mailers ,
    and if USPS pick up, about 3 days.
    I've helped people do this, it's not that hard.
    You've got about a week.
    That's if he had the supplies first

    He's done this before.
    He sends out some perfume bottles to reviewers ,
    and gets a bunch of orders.
    Then all of a sudden, he's behind.
    I could understand this if this was his first venture,
    but it's not.
    I am sorry about him being sick and wish him the best of recovery.

    All that said,
    at least his reply didn't take over Order Placed October 5th 2018 7 months.
    In the case of
    Maison Incens , of which I ordered samples that were never sent,
    Philippe final got in touch with me on March 13th 2019.
    Here's Philippe's reply.

    Dear Edward,

    I'm Philippe, founder of the brand MAISON INCENS.
    I would like to apologise for not answering to your emails.
    We had a company who was in charge of managing our website, unfortunately they were not serious. That why you didn't receive an answer to your email and I perfectly understand your disappointment

    To excuse our mistake I propose to send you the perfume of your choice for free.
    Just let me know the one you would like to receive and we will dispatch it this week.
    We are a small company and it is difficult for me to manage everything, but from now on I will personally take care of the website.
    I hope this will solve the matter.
    Best Regards
    Philippe Constantin

    I wasn't going to request a bottle, then I decided that I would .
    Here's something about the company.

    1 review

    Did the same to me as other reviewer.
    Very poor action and will follow this through to the very end to stop them doing this to potential customers.

    That's a review left 2 days before I got the email from Philippe.

    I think some people get into a business , because they love what it is .
    Just because they love it, doesn't make them good at business though.
    I think that's the case here with both, yet they might have fundamental issues that continue to cause them problems

    you don't know you're lying, if you believe your own bs

    that's my thought.

    Glad everything is going to work out for you, and I .
    I let you know if mine gets to me , and what I think.
    I haven't got a reply yet .
    I sent my request the same day I got the email from Philippe .

    Why does this whole thing feel like I'm waiting on a Kickstarter? Or in this case a Kickstopper.

    JBS, you called it from the beginning. Something's not right here and I don't like it. I'm patient as long as I feel like a business is acting in good faith, but give people room to play games and they absolutely will. Something a lot of "small businesses" more so individuals (ebay/etsy) try to get away with is bulk shipping just a couple of times a month, yet they'll take orders daily. It's not even about the money or the fragrances, it's just knowing what good business looks like and what doesn't.

    Well I hope you've been sending emails to Jerek , and been keeping them.
    That said, it does look good for Fragrant Vagrant .
    Good for you.
    I myself just got a bottle from Maisons Incens .
    He's a man of his word .
    It did take from October of last year till today to straighten everything out.
    I am sure it won't take that long for you though .
    Just make sure you keep sending emails , regardless if they want them or not.
    It shows that you are of good character, and that you have given plenty of opportunity to correct the situation.
    Write nicely, be proactive and positive .
    That's what PayPal etc want to see .

    Tobacco Lush - A decent scent, it's a pretty linear progression of dry tobacco, leather, and some booze. Nothing groundbreaking, but for a total price of $12.50 it does well.

    Tea & Tobacco - So far (an hour in) I do not like it. It starts off with a loud and abrasive Windex note which doesn't go away. It quiets down in ferocity after a few minutes but still dominates the fragrance. I will give it some more time and another wear or two to see if it changes.
