News and Events
Newest Releases & Events:
New bath/body items and scents will launch on Dec 1st for the virtual Darksome Art & Craft Market 'Black Sheep Holidays' edition -- 10% sitewide with code DARKSOMEBLACKSHEEP from Dec 1-3! Details on the new bath/body items will be posted to the PULP Fragrance Instagram over the coming days -- including a new skin-soothing bath soak and a rich, nourishing hair & beard oil + some new holiday season bath/body scents!
NOTE: We're moving to RTS (Ready-To-Ship) meaning no more Bottled-To-Order items. This means a higher likelihood of some things selling out. We'll be doing rolling restocks as we're able, but the main focus of this change is to reduce TAT (Turn-Around Time), so order fulfillment takes precedence over restocks. New, reduced TAT will be posted on Nov 25, but it will be about half or less of the current TAT.
This also means a suspension of: 'Twice as Nice' 2 x bottle bundles, 'The Library' Sample Set, Bestsellers Sample Set, & Customizable Sample Sets, effective immediately. This step is necessary to reduce the TAT and enable shipping in time for the holidays. Individual samples will remain available on each scent's product listings, though some may temporarily sell out from time-to-time.
Order combining is ON from Nov 25 - Dec 3. Orders placed after Darksome Craft Fair ends on Dec 3rd may not be able to be combined. No combination code this time around, just drop a line in the Cart Notes field (or email us with your order number) & let us know. We'll refund all shipping overages after shipping. Note: if orders from Nov 25 onwards do not have a note to hold for future order, they may be shipped out before the Dec 1st bath/body drop. No orders will be held after Dec 4th, in order to make sure we meet holiday shipping deadlines.
Orders placed on both market weekends will ship out by the Canada Post holiday delivery cut-off dates. This does not 100% guarantee on-time delivery, as once packages are in their hands, they're out of our control, but we'll be doing everything we can to try to get you your stuff on time for the holidays! This means we'll be prioritizing order queue based on ship-by dates and customer locations, not just on order placement date. We'll keep the Processing page updated accordingly.
Restocks are not guaranteed during the month of December, as we'll be busy with order processing to get things out on time for the holidays & with the new RTS model there is a much higher chance of some things selling out. But, no collections will retire until at least January 2024. If something you're looking for does not come back in stock by end of 2023, it will be back in early 2024. (The exceptions to this are seasonal LE scents: Lughnasadh Fires and Samhain Fires, which may sell out until they return in their season next year.) Restock notifications and Wishlists have been enabled!
Note: Market of the Beast & Darksome Craft Market will be the last general sale events until later in 2024. There will be a year-end overstock sale of specific items either in late December or early January, featuring any leftover RTS items at reduced prices, but no general sitewide sale event for Boxing Day, etc. [Details and leftovers list will be posted at least a day ahead of time.]
November 25th: CYBER WEEKEND SALE AND NEW RELEASE: Ghost Stories for Christmas by M R James, a brand-new haunted holiday collection launches on Saturday Nov 25th! This release is part of our participation in the virtual Market of the Beast 'Yule Be Summoned' holiday edition -- 10% sitewide with code MOTBEAST from Nov 25-27! Details on the new scents have been posted to the Scent Index -- including the final two New Moon scents of 2023 (Beaver Moon & Oak Moon). There will also be a final 2023 restock on Saturday of Lughnasadh Fires and Samhain Fires
October 27th: Restock notification capabilities are active, so you can set a reminder for out of stock items and be the first to know when they're back!
October 6th: All in-person market events thru end of the year have been cancelled. There were 3 of them later in Oct/Nov on the schedule, but due to ongoing Long COVID issues, I've made the decision to cancel those and forfeit those table fees. Right now, I'm still operating at a partially diminished capacity & something had to give in order to keep the other plates spinning. I've got helpers coming in and a larger studio lease in the works (new roof going on it now!). As of Oct 6th, we're operating approx. 1-2 weeks ahead of TAT for online orders. In order to keep that fulfillment standard up, taking the markets off of the schedule was deemed the wisest move. My apologies to the market organizers and to the local/regional folks who were planning to attend. I'll be looking at other options for in-town Local Pickup for orders. And: Virtual markets are still happening! Online market events are not impacted by this -- some holiday season news on that front coming soon!
August 10th: *NEW* - PULP Fragrance sample sets now in stock at the Sucreabeille Indie Marketplace! Our 5-piece Bestsellers set is now available on the Indie Marketplace and we're in such good company. So many great items from a fantastic range of indie brands, all in one convenient marketplace. This set includes perfume oil samples of: Bewitching Amber, Death Moon, Eagle Hill Cemetery, Portrait of Josette & Sonnet X.
July 30th: New sticker designs! Plus, final day of the Summer Darkness edition of the Darksome Craft Market!
July 28th: New releases coming! Keep an eye on your inboxes and the Instagram for advance details.

Beltane Fires: July 14th restock is its final batch. Next year's version may differ, as one of the vanillas is discontinued and no longer available. If you liked your 2023 Beltane Fires sample, now is the final chance to grab a larger size of this exact version.

June 29, 2023: The Next Market on July 22nd has been CANCELLED.
May 19, 2023: Etsy shop is now closed! Managing inventory across two platforms became cumbersome and costly, so sadly the Etsy is now gone. UK and EU customers can still shop PULP Fragrance via our listings at Ajevie -- and preorders for items not carried directly at Ajevie are available monthly at the same time of new release preorders.
May 8, 2023: New pricing is in effect -- to offset the increase on the full-size bottles, please see the new bundle listing: 'Twice As Nice' Choose Your Own Two-Bottle Bundle

- Come to the Circus - Apricot tea, saddle leather, violet pastilles, red musk & white amber.

These will join the online shop in mid-May.
Date TBD: we'll have a Last Chance sale of bath/body/home items in the following scents:
- Hall of Mirrors
- Portrait of Josette
- The Widow in White
These scents are being discontinued in these product formats only; they will still remain available as perfume.
