Dear friends of Good Judy, so far 2011 has been a year of many transitions and new adventures both on a personal and on a business level. I am grateful for and humbled by Good Judy's supporters and thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart.

Now for the big announcement. Good Judy will close its virtual doors on May 1st. Rest assured, all orders currently being processed and all orders purchased up until May 1st will be filled and sent out in the order they were received.

That being said, Good Judy will not be closed for good. I will be using this much need hiatus to navigate and reflect on the aforementioned personal and business transitions, taking great care in deciding Good Judy's future. One thing I know for sure, Good Judy will be back. To what degree, and when, I cannot honestly answer at this time. While mulling over the logistics of how to announce this news, my original thought was to say two weeks. Then the entire month of May. I finally realized that I am not prepared to give a definite re-opening date and do not want to tie myself down with deadlines and the possibility of not meeting those deadlines. So, the process will happen organically, and Good Judy will re-open when the time is right.

Thank you for your faithful and continued support of Good Judy. I have made this difficult decision to ensure the quality and integrity of Good Judy's practices and products continue to live up to the high standards I hold them to.

Until May 1st, it's business as usual. There are a few perfume lines that are ending on April 30th, including:

Good Judy has released Spring 2011 and Mary Jo's Bakery: Sweet Treats 2011 to go along with March MashUPs and The Vault. Plus, there's a sale going on!


SPRING 2011: SPRING'S ALCHEMY - METAMORPHOSIS

Spring 2011 - Spring's Alchemy: Metamorphosis was inspired by the change of seasons...order from chaos...life from death. After months of decay and stillness, growth and movement return...light erupts from darkness. A natural and necessary process, each one having no more power than the other, each needing the other to transform. Spring is here. The cycle begins anew. But neither disappear completely while the other is working its magick. There are always hints of light in darkness...and darkness in light.

Available until 04.30.2011, or while supplies last. Not available as Whiff or Choose Your Scent selections. Coupons, sales, and special offers do not apply.

Reposting this notice from Sigg:

Good Judy has been facing some major challenges in the first months of 2011.

First the weather wreaked havoc on processing and shipping times, then shipping delays on supplies stopped production, now computer troubles. Our main computer crashed last week and I have spent the last 5 days playing computer hacker in an attempt to recover as much data as possible. Almost everything was lost...files, programs, backups...everything. I had to reformat and I've managed to rebuild (SLOWLY) from scratch and am very close to having everything running normally. Unfortunately, all of our emails were lost and despite having email backup software, the reinstalled email client will not recognize it. I was finally able to reactivate all of our email accounts and they are, as of now, working properly. I have also acquired two different email backup tools to backup the backups.

Fortunately, except for those done the day before the crash, all of Good Judy's recipes, labels, spreadsheets, website and the works were recovered. That would have been a devastating loss, but I don't want to even go there. I'm just happy to say recovering those files was the light in the darkness. I am very grateful.

All orders are on the server, so they were perfectly safe from the crash. If you have not received a shipping email from us, please know I will be processing orders again starting tomorrow. If you have not received a response to an email you sent, please send it again. More than likely it was lost and we have not received it.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.

I promise you, I am working as hard as I can to make up for the lost days. I am bound and determined to turn this dreadful start to 2011 around! Thank you so much for your understanding and patience, and for your continued support of all things Good Judy.

The Spring 2011 Update, scheduled to be released this week, will be delayed until I can catch up on orders. I will let you know as soon as it goes live.


Love and light,

Scent of the Day: Wild Hunt (in Yule 2009: Dark & Light)

"When the winter winds blow and the Yule fires are lit, it is best to stay indoors, safely shut away from the dark paths and the wild heaths. Those who wander out by themselves during the Yule-nights may hear a sudden rustling through the tops of the trees - a rustling that might be the wind, though the rest of the wood is still.

"But then the barking of dogs fills the air, and the host of wild souls sweeps down, fire flashing from the eyes of the black hounds and the hooves of the black horses." - Kveldulf Hagen Gundarsson

The hunt is legend to take place between October 31st and April 30th (May Eve). But the height of the Wild Hunt is said to fall on Yule, December 21st.

Spiced buttered rum, bayberry, nutmeg, cinnamon, juniper

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

As Frosty likes to say, there's something magical about the first snowfall of the season. With a world in white underway, and holiday music playing in the background, what better time to give away some cheer?! So for the rest of the weekend, every purchase of $15 or more (before shipping) will receive a free 2ml bottle of either Cookie Climax, Snow Cream, or Winter Toddy! You choose! Normally, these three blends are available as Aromatic Spritzers and Mineral Bath Soaks only.

Fine print: Purchase must total $15 before shipping. Let me know which flavor freebie you want in the comment section during checkout. Offer may not be combined with any other offer and is not valid on previous purchases. Offer good through Sunday 12.6.2009, or while supplies last.

Happy first day of snow!

December is here, and it promises to be a great end to a wonderful year for Good Judy. The last month of the year brings a rather large update. There are some great APM: December perfumes, the return of Flaming Red, a few new Limited Edition Aromatic Spritzers, a fabulous new Signature Scent, discontinued perfumes, and I am most excited to announce our newest product...Mineral Bath Soaks!

Without further ado... )

Bottle will be included automatically. Nothing for you to do but order.

While we love to celebrate the entire month, today is officially Good Judy's 2nd anniversary! Sincerest thanks and much love to all of our friends and fans!

***GOOD JUDY'S ANNIVERSARY PERFUMES

It's our 2nd anniversary! Thanks to all of our friends and fans for making it a great 2 years. To celebrate and commemorate, a special limited edition perfume is available for the month of October.

Gee Jay is a well-blended, complex scent chock full of sensuous beauty and warmth, including alluring floral notes of cyclamen, sambac, mimosa, rose water, peony, osmanthus, iris, and vanilla orchid….grounding herbs of lavender, rosemary, basil, sage, hemp…sweet and tangy fruits of tangerine, bergamot, limewood, and pear…spices of cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon bark, amberseed and vanilla…finished with a well rounded combination of nag champa, vetyver, sandalwood, white amber, and white and black musk.

The notes are well-blended and complimentary, with no single note standing out above another. Celebrate Good Judy's 2nd anniversary in scented splendor with Gee Jay!

And, as a special thanks, the return of last year's anniversary perfume:

Halo & Horns: Black amber, dragon's blood, aloe, banyan fruit, teak leaf

Both anniversary perfumes are available 10.01.09 through 10.31.09, or while supplies last.

***THE VAULT

There have been many requests for Enchanted Autumn 2009 perfumes since they went away on 9.30.09, so The Vault is open! Needless to say, supplies on these perfumes are very limited.

The Vault will remain open through 10.31.09, or while supplies last.

***STOCK/PRINTER

Supplies for Pumpkin King arrived last week and I'm all caught up. Also, printer drama is fixed! Everything is back on track.

***LIMITED EDITIONS

Halloween 2009: La Bal Masqué
Los Dias de los Muertos 2009

Welcome to October! It's Good Judy's 2nd anniversary! To celebrate, there's a special limited edition perfume (and the return of last year's anniversary perfume). Plus, the Almanac per Mensem blends for October are available, and a limited edition Aromatic Spritzer makes its debut. Without further ado...Click for Goodies! )

Hi friends! I am fascinated with the date tomorrow: 09.09.09. When added together, that equals 27. Add 2 and 7, and you get 9 again!

So, in honor of being easily amused, Good Judy is having a 27% off sale. Every purchase from now through Sunday (the 13th) will be 27% off. No exclusions other than this offer may not be used to purchase gift certificates and may not be combined with any other coupon, sale, or offer.

Now's your chance to stock up on Limited Editions including Enchanted Autumn 2009, Los Dias de los Muertos 2009, and APM: September perfumes, purchase your favorite Aromatic Spritzers, and get those Whiffs you've been dying to try.

Simply add the coupon code: 999 during checkout and you'll receive 27% off your entire purchase.

On a side note, Good Judy periodically notifies customers (using the networking sites below) about a scent of the day. Knowing I wanted to have Whip be the scent for today, I was completely baffled when I realized that I forgot to ever add the perfume when the Boudoir Boutique general category went live! After having a good laugh, I added the blend. I also want to make sure everyone is aware that it's there, so without further ado...

Whip: Thank you! May I have another? Whip me, spank me, pinch me, and tell me that I'm bad. Love and pain become one and the same with this tantalizing toy. Cross the threshold into a world of spiritual and sexual awakening. For the more adventurous, Whip is sure to please. So get cheeky and leave your mark of love! Whip it good! Stinging leather musk, tender pink floral accord, blond wood, sweet bisabol myrrh

Love and light,

It's September! The weather is definitely cooling. The windows are open and the mountain air is alive with the scents and the sounds of the end of summer.

Onwards...Click for Goodies! )

APM: August only has a week left before making room for APM: September. Poor August was swallowed up by the Enchanted Autumn and Aromatic Spritzer releases, and has not received the attention it deserves. But, rest assured, there is one more week to take advantage of these wonderful blends.

Bread Pudding

Warm bread soaked in milk and eggs and spices. Baked golden bubbly and served drenched in an ooey-gooey vanilla rum sauce. Delightfully rich and satisfying!
