It has been an important component of our business to offer as much choice as possible. It is why we have 3 beard oil formulas, 6 shampoo bars and numerous fragrance choices spread between all of our products.
In most situations, giving so many options is considered a drain upon a business. They can add costs and lead to a potential to have stagnant inventory for less popular items. Every scent we introduce is an investment in all the parts that contribute to that scent, and some of those parts can get very expensive. Essential and natural fragrance oils are a large determining factor for our pricing.
We wish to offer more scent option but we did not wish to be burdened with inventory that may not turn as fast. Our solution is to offer an expanded assortment of scents that will be made to order. We have developed a means to allow us to offer more choice without much of the risks. Our costs will only slightly be increased to offer these options which will be reflected in the pricing. Each expanded assortment scent will be marked “EA” after the scent name to let you know that this is a made to order item. When purchasing such an item, you may have a 1 day delay to shipping to permit time to produce your item. These scents will also be available for the Subscription plans for related items.
Of our current scents, there will be a few that will migrate to Expanded Assortment as our current on-hand inventory is diminished. Over time we hope to bring back many of the fragrances we have offered in the past as Limited Editions, such as Howard’s Pipe and Bay Rum to beard oils. There has also been a request for Shanghai fragrance to be added to our beard care line. We will also be able to offer more scents in Shower Wash, Body Oil, Lotion and Body Mist. We will also look into scented options for Junk Oil as we have had a few inquiries.
We hope you are as excited about this as we are! Look for the updates coming.
