Fragrance Profile: Blackberry Sage

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start talking about summery fragrances – although, really, Blackberry Sage is popular year-round.

The description on the listings is short and to the point: “Berries galore, with a subtle undertone of sage: A glorious combination!” Well, that’s true, there’s no denying it. It’s bright and fruity, fresh and delicious, juicy and sweet, but with a slight herbal note underlying the whole picture to keep it from being cloying or overpowering.

Blackberry Sage SunSoap

It’s a very popular soap, but – and this surprised me when I realized it – it is my absolute best-selling solid perfume, at least in the last six months. Also popular in lotion, sugar scrubs, body butter – well, basically, the fragrance is very versatile, and loved by pretty much everyone who likes fruity scents and about half the people who usually don’t.

It was also a fairly early addition to our soap lineup, and while a good third of the fragrances that we offered at that time have fallen by the wayside, Blackberry Sage is still going strong and there’s pretty much no chance I’ll be discontinuing it any time soon.

    When Amy asked me what I thought about Blackberry Sage, this is what I came up with……

    Ode to Blackberry Sage by Shannon

    Oh Blackberry Sage, how do I love thee, let me count the ways….

    Your aroma is sweet, but not overtly so
    I love to slather you on from my neck to my littlest toe

    You envelop my various body parts in your yummy scent
    You, my friend, are worth every nickel, dime, and dollar I’ve spent

    Your fragrance lingers, but doesn’t smack me like a 2 x 4 to the head
    I truly think if you were a man, to you I’d be wed

    Okay, maybe not really wed, but I do love me some Blackberry Sage. I’m still trying to convince Ames that there needs to be a big vat of either Blackberry Sage or Vanilla Sugar, so one (me) could immerse completely within it. Where I think a great marketing idea could result from it, she just continues to give me the crazy eye whenever I suggest it, so at this time, it’s a no go. 😦
