Hello Luvlies! I'm sure that if you're here it's because you're excited about this year's Monster Mash and can't wait to find out more. I'll be using this page to hopefully answer any questions you may have. Whether you're returning from last year or new to the Mash this year, if you end up having any lingering questions after reading everything here please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll be more than happy to assist!
When is Monster Mash?
Monster Mash will be available starting September 1st at 12PM (noon) EST until October 31st at 12PM (noon) EST.
Please keep in mind that September 2nd is a postal holiday and no mail will be picked up.
Will scents be limited/run out?
Hopefully not! Last year I only had a limited amount of each Monster but this year the plan is for me to restock as necessary for the duration of the Mash. Things may still become temporarily out of stock depending on popularity but you can always shoot me an email for ETA on its restock if the information is not available on the listing.
What is Monster Mash anyway?
If you're new to the Mash, it may seem a little complicated at first but is quite simple in the end. What you do is you pick one available Monster (find the full list below) and decide if you want them to be your Boyfriend, Girlfriend, or Lover.
Each Monster has a base set of notes, while Boyfriend and Girlfriend are a single additional note that will be added to the Monster blend. Lover is both the BF and GF notes added to the Monster blend. This is meant to be a Non-Binary offering but can also work just as well to say that you are a lover/fan of the chosen Monster.
The concept behind Monster Mash is that you are taking a Monster date to the Monster Mash! Feel free to try them all, Monsters are more than happy to share, despite popular misconceptions.
Can I just choose the Monster without the addition of the BF/GF/Lover notes?
No, you must choose one of the additions. If you do not choose one I will choose for you.
Will all the Monsters from 2018 be returning?
No, unfortunately the least popular Monsters have decided not to make a comeback. In fact I've heard they may have settled down. Some Monsters are returning with a few new faces as well; you can find the list of them below.
What Monsters are available for 2019?
This is the full list of all Monsters and their notes.
Boyfriend: Tanned leather.
Girlfriend: Sweet marshmallow.
Lover: Tanned leather and sweet marshmallow.
Returning Monster Dates
Ghost: Green apple, allspice, brown sugar, and a pinch of cinnamon.
Vampire: Red wine spiced with cinnamon and sweetened with strawberries.
Werewolf: Soft amber covered ferns, cedar, and pine trees crawling with moss.
New Monster Dates
Basilisk: Blood orange, lime, agave syrup, cucumber, and a hint of jalapeno.
Kraken: Salty sea air, green seaweed, and ozone.
Yeti: Crisp peppermint and a single vanilla dunked strawberry.
Patreon Exclusive Date
Chupacabra: Pear and cactus nectars, agave syrup, and freshly cut desert flowers.
What do you mean by 'Patreon Exclusive Date'?
I have a Patreon page where I occasionally put out exclusive scents. For the months of September and October, a special Monster date will be available for Patrons only. It will be available to all tiers, the lowest tier being only $1 a month. My Patreon also grants access to the rest of my secret shop and a Discord Server where you can chat with other Luvlies and me.
Will you be doing anything else for Autumn/Halloween?
Yes. From October 1st through November 15th, a way to "monsterize" all current scents will be available. You will be able to add the scent blend 'Monster Parts' to any scent at your own risk. Scents may turn out yummy or dubious. This event is meant to be a fun experiment and no refunds will be issued should you create a blend that isn't your preference.
Monster Parts: Pumpkin, apple, and smoke from a campfire.
I have sensitive skin and things like cinnamon tend to irritate my skin, should I avoid any of these scents?
I would suggest avoiding Ghost and Vampire. Yeti may also irritate due to the peppermint and Basilisk may cause a reaction from the jalapeno. Should you choose to purchase any of these anyway, I would suggest getting something small and spot testing first!
What products will be available in the Monster Mash scents?
Everything! You will be able to choose any available product in whichever Monster date you want. Special standalone listings will be made available for this.
Everything excludes Butter Crumbles, Glycerin Soap, and Lip Balms. Sorry!
Will Turn Around Time (TAT) be increased during Monster Mash?
It may be. While I'll be doing my best to get everything out ASAP, should I become overloaded with orders I may temporarily close or extend TAT a bit to keep up with the busy Autumn season. Please do not order during Monster Mash if you need to have something to you within a week as it may not happen! If you're unsure, you can always email me and I'll let you know what you may be looking at TAT wise. Otherwise I always have my TAT posted in the footer on my website.
I think that's it! If I didn't answer something here that you're dying to know, just shoot me an email and I'll get back to you as quickly as I can. I hope you're as excited for this year's Monster Mash as I am!
