When I created my Summer Mojito Exfoliating Scrub in August, everyone that came in for their summer massage treat wanted to upgrade their service with a Summer Mojito and got naturally drunk off of increased endorphin levels. My massage room smelled of lime and mint goodness with tropical music in the background. If you didn’t get a chance to come in you missed it sorry.
So let me back up, two years ago Fall, I jumped on the pumpkin spice bandwagon. I loved pumpkin spice in my coffee so much I offered a pumpkin spice exfoliation as my Fall promotion. Every spa in town was doing it. I figured it was working so why not? I had a pumpkin spice candle. I thought it was a hit. A couple of people loved it, so I brought it back last year. Who wouldn’t repeat what works right? Wrong! It did not do so well the second time around. I had a client told me she HATED pumpkin spice. I was shocked. She is my top VIP client. Why wait until summer to say something to me, ma’am. I thought we had a relationship. We do. But she was super busy and decided to skip that month so all the Pumpkin freaks can get it all in. Naturally, I checked to see if she came last Fall. Welp, she skipped the whole month because of it. Then yesterday I had another VIP told me he hated pumpkin spice. What? Do all my VIPs hate pumpkin spice? Well, I made something special for my VIP Haters.
For my Pumpkin Spice Haters ( I love you all to life)
For my population of Pumpkin Spice haters. I mean that in a good way! I broke up with my coffee addiction about a year ago; Now I understand how you feel. I walked into WAWA for a salad the other day, and the pumpkin spice smell hit me right in the sinuses. I started doing the weird nose thing allergy sufferers do. That smell can SUCK for real. Yesterday I went to Starbucks because I had a gift card.
I wanted to scream Jesus take the wheel. Who invented this? So I got on my phone “ok google who invited pumpkin spice coffee” That darn google said PETER DUKES. What? A man with MY last name invented it. Oh, the irony. I’m so sorry I put some people on level 10 of pumpkin trauma.
So for all the Pumpkin Spice Haters, I’ve tossed out the Pumpkin Spice. I’ve created a fabulous Apple Cinnamon Brown Sugar Scrub. I’ll even add nutmeg and cloves IF you like those smells. I’ve checked every spa in town, and no one is offering my blend. Praise the Scrub Gods I’m standing out this FALL. #WINNING
