We know, Summer is only now really getting into the swing of it. It is now time for us to start getting ready for Autumn on the production side of things and with that we need to make room for all the new scents coming on board and returning for the Autumn season. Shortly afterward we need to be ready for the Winter and Holiday seasons.
On August 1st we will end production of all SPRING and SUMMER scents. The limited edition ARID FOREST candle scent will keep going as it was a late addition and not tied tightly to our Seasonal Scents matrix.
You then may be wondering what we have planned for Autumn. Here is what we have planned for JÖL Candles:
We have some great new scents to introduce that are even more strongly evoke the time of the year and especially how us in the Midwest experience it. Two of our Autumn seasonal scents from last year were so popular we decided to keep them going year round. BLACK CHERRY PIPE TOBACCO will continue in this grouping, SMOKE + MIRRORS will end with the Autumn Season for 2022 and will return to being an Autumn Seasonal scent.
Returning with Autumn 2022 will be CYPRESS BAYBERRY. It’s crisp pine scent is a great introduction to winter and was extremely well liked last year. New scents we are adding as AUTUMN scents are CAMPFIRE TALES and AUTUMNAL BOUNTY. CAMPFIRE TALES is a very outdoorsy wood and fire scent that is perfect for the season. It is so well suited that you will want to toast some marshmallows and tell ghost stories. AUTUMNAL BOUNTY is an ideal fall harvest scent full of earthy sweet notes and pumpkin pie spices.
There are 2 more new scents coming to be a part of our AUTUMN + WINTER Season that we will announce later. We feel both of these scents will be something special, with one being even more special to us here at J&L.
WASSAIL and HOLIDAY HEARTH will return as Winter / Holiday scents and will start production in September. We will have another “pine” scent to add to the mix with a more wintry character.
J&L Pogonotrophics will see some updates for our AUTUMN/WINTER scents as well, we are still fine tuning those options.
We plan to have all our AUTUMN/WINTER scents available at our late September Pop Up – more news to come on that as well.
SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES WILL IMPACT AUTUMN SEASON
We are tired of having to talk about this ourselves, but we wish to keep everyone up to date as it impacts the products announced here.
The mist sprayer bottles we use for ROOM + FABRIC SPRAY are on deep backorder. There is no ETA for when they will be available to ship to us. We are looking for other suppliers for this bottle, and more specifically the spray head we much prefer. At this time, we will not be able to produce any new ROOM + FABRIC SPRAY, including replenishment of current scent options.
We do not anticipate, at this time, any impact to candles and melts. Although there has been another price increase to Soy Wax but we should be able to maintain our current pricing if the paint cans hold at current levels. There was interest in our candles in smaller 1/2 pint cans. We would love to offer these but the smaller cans are significantly more expensive than the 1 pint cans we use. We would have to charge nearly as much for a candle half the size. Other tin and container prices are even higher.
