For those of you who aren't into decants[1]: feel free to skip this post.

STATUS UPDATE:
11/09/2009 - Bottles Confirmed
11/09/2009 - Order Placed
28/09/2009 - Shipping
06/10/2009 - Oils Received!
08/10/2009 - All oils decanted ohgod my fingers OW.
10/10/2009 - Everything not waiting on CO decant circle mailed out.
30/10/2009 - Everything sent.


A couple of points:
* I'm happy to add on bottles or petals to the order.
* If you are already participating in my Conjure Oils circle, please let me know if you would like me to combine shipping. If the answer is no, I will send both circles once all your imps have been decanted.
* Because decant circles can get quite expensive, I'm afraid I can't afford to order any bottle that has less than three imps claimed by midnight on September 10th. I absolutely understand if you want to hold off on paying until the 10th to see if the scents you're interested in fill up, but I would *really* appreciate payment before I order, for obvious reasons. :)

Fiddly details
The circle is now open. On September the 11th, I will place an order for all bottles that have at least three slots taken. I expect they'll be in to me by early October; I'm sure all the orders can be mailed out within ten days of my receiving the bottles.
All prices in $US.
Please pay via Paypal; torrain at rogers dot com.
For up to twenty imps, shipping in Canada is $2.50; for the US, $3.00; for elsewhere, $4.50.
For an additional twenty imps, it's an extra $1 to Canada and the US, and an extra $2 for elsewhere. Bottles count as six imps for the purpose of calculating shipping.
If you prefer, I can mail imps (or bottles, should you order them) as a Small Packet, which has coverage, extensive packaging, and delivery confirmation. This shipping covers any imps you get and any number of bottles. It runs:
* $7 to $10 for Canada, depending on province
* $7.50 for the States
* $9 for elsewhere.
Decants mailed in their traditional plumber's tape/plastic baggie/bubble wrap/padded mailer outfit.
Imps are $3.50 each.
If you want an imp of all thirteen Diablo Canyon scents, it's $42.
If you want an imp of all six Halloween 2009 scents, it's $19.
bpal_feedback's here. BPAL forum feedback is here.
I can't think of anything else; if you can, please ask!



The Oils!
==Diablo Canyon==
Bag of Bones - CONFIRMED
But the same thing that happened every night happened tonight and those McVay’s carried around his bag of bones until the sun scorched across the desert welcoming the dawn. It was another evening without his bones and frankly, Jasper was getting tired of this prank.
Two very dry ambers, scorched-sweet sandalwood, aged vanilla husk, faint clouds of dusty desert air, golden spices, one smiling skull, and one lone bullet.

Diablo Canyon Cemetary - CONFIRMED
Sun-bleached bone, white sandalwood, golden amber, autumnal spices, coriander, wind-worn wooden coffins, sandy desert grave loam, and dried yellow leaves.

Doc Brown's Medicines and Elixirs - CONFIRMED
The old wooden sign was only half-hanging on one faded copper rod. It was a bit hard to make out, hanging there just-so, but if you stopped right under the sign and looked directly up, the sign read: "Doc Brown's Medicines and Elixirs: What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger."
Dark sage tea, blackberries infused in a tincture of smoky Bourbon vanilla, white amber, dusty glass bottles of long-evaporated orange and elderberry water, and sugared-cedar chewing sticks.

Ghost Town - CONFIRMED
The dry, windless air tossed around tumbleweeds and rapped at semi-broken windows; as night approached doors would slam, gun shots could be heard and strange orange lights would appear. No living soul, less a raccoon or an armadillo, would go near the town after night fall and it wasn’t much better during the day.
A distant bonfire, wind-dried red and brown autumn leaves, tart orchard apple, smoldered Cathouse stage, the haunting wail of a ghost train, and the diabolic laughter of the dead softened by a touch of sweet white cranberry.

Marty (Magic Fingers) McVay - CONFIRMED
Marty could snap off a woman’s garters and unhook her corset in one swift motion, earning him the name Magic Fingers. He was a regular at the Cathouse and found all of the Kitties to be incredibly adorable and completely kissable. When he wasn’t at the Cathouse hooting cat-calls at the local entertainment, he was fooling around with his older, much more sinister brother, Mick.
Smokey vanilla, golden resins, sweet vanilla tea spiced with cinnamon, and dirty white amber.

Mick (Magic Pistol) McVay - CONFIRMED
He didn’t get his name because he chose it, he got it because he earned it and damn if he wasn’t going to shoot things up even if they were already dead. Lately he had taken a fancy to shooting raccoon bones or any other long departed carcass. He had a sneaky suspicion that he himself was dead but he just couldn’t remember, and besides, who had been stupid enough to shoot him? There wasn’t much to do anymore in Diablo Canyon and for the last few evenings he and his brother had hid the skeleton of Jasper (Jinx) Cody, carrying those bones around in a faded burlap bag. If only he could get the heck out of the canyon he might be able to have some real fun but every time the sun rose he got so sleepy and didn’t wake up until dusk. It was as if each day just flowed right into the next and he was getting very annoyed.
Smoky dark chocolate, deep spicy resins, thick black coffee, and murky dark amber.

Mona Christie's Antiques - CONFIRMED
Mona traded things that were new for things that were old, very old. She kept the stock of her shop arranged neatly on flower embroidered lace linens and instead of dusting, she let the dust settle and over the years, her treasures had collected the dust from every inch of Diablo Canyon.
Musty earth, dark blueberries, patchouli leaf, dark vetiver, black vanilla bean, raspberries, golden vanilla, dried violets, and a hint of aromatic wood dust.

Sheriff Lonestar - CONFIRMED
He didn’t know how and he wasn’t sure when but he knew he rested in a pine box and that was good enough for Lone Star. Lone Star knew that as long as he marshaled Diablo Canyon he couldn’t move on and his soul couldn’t be recycled, maybe in a few years he would move on but for right now, even the damned needed a sheriff.
Brown scuffed saddle leather, dry vanilla amber, cypress boughs, one gleaming copper star, a trace of pine box and a dusting of burial dirt.

==Halloween 2009==
Beggars' Night - CONFIRMED
The hurried shuffle of tiny footsteps, the crinkle of costumes, and the happy squeal of school-age children going house-to-house for Halloween sweets.
Honey chews, vanilla nougat, chocolate bars, butterscotch sticks, creamy caramel pulls, warmed skin musk, and Jack-O-Lanterns glowing at each door.

Ghost Dancer - CONFIRMED
A dry white scent celebrating the annual spirits' dance under the October full moon. Tree bones bare of flower and leaf, aged cemetary blooms, the cold on-set of midnight and the deep scent of weathered funeral incense.

Is it OK to combine Conjure oil decants with these? If so, I'd love decants of...

Bag of Bones
Diablo Canyon Cemetary
Sheriff Lonestar

and from the Conjure oils decants...

Abandoned Morgue
Buried Alive. Again
Dem Bones
Haunted Hayride 2009
Stingy Jack 2009
Witching Hour 2009

all coming to the UK. Thanks! :)

Absolutely fine. :)

You're in the third bottle of Abandoned Morgue, and as there's only one imp taken I can't afford to order it unless three more people show an interest. However, I can see about scraping together a sniffie at least...

In any case, if the third bottle of Abandoned Morgue is ordered, that's $31.50 (9 * $3.50) for the oils, and $4.50 to ship them all together to the UK, making a total of $36 to be PayPalled to torrain@rogers.com. If it isn't confirmed, it would be a total of $32.50. I'd hold off on paying until I can tell you definitely whether or not the AM is a go. :)

Sorry, I didn't see the edit in my inbox (just the original message)and I paid the first total you gave! I really shouldn't be allowed near the computer this late at night... Would it be ok to just do a partial refund if the extra bottle of Abandoned Morgue doesn't go through? Not sure how it works with US paypal, but I know I've done it before with UK paypal without any probs.

Can do. Sorry I didn't see this message until now--things have been a touch hectic over here. The third bottle of Abandoned Morgue sadly didn't make it, so I've refunded you the $3.50; please let me know if there's any trouble with it showing up.

Hey! Just a quick note to let you know that all your Violette Market oils are decanted; I'll let you know when the Conjure Oils come in.
