This is not an "unfortunate" thing because there might be more feedback available on your scents by then! It sounds like there were several soapers on this forum who purchased during that 30% off sale. If they start testing right away, by Thanksgiving you might be able to benefit from their trials. I am waiting for others to post their feedback before I purchase scents from Nature's Fragrances. This year, I've tested a little over 100 fragrances. Oh the rabbit hole that I fell into. I will be so glad to be done with the little 1 ounce bottles!
