Today at Glynne’s Soaps, we’re talking about werewolves. Yes, werewolves! Howl-at-the-moon, transform-in-the-forest werewolves. In celebration of Christine Johnson’s werewolf novel, CLAIRE DE LUNE, available in bookstores today, we’re stretching our love of the canine to include the lupine.
Werewolves’ senses are much stronger than those of a normal human. While your sensitive nose might be bothered by the artificial scents that clog the soap-and-body-wash aisle at the nearest big-box store, to a werewolf – even in human form – those same smells are overwhelming.
And once they’ve transformed? Forget it. They don’t smell artificial raspberry, they smell the chemicals that have been combined to trick our pathetic human sniffers into smelling ripe fruit. But werewolves want to smell nice, just like other human women (there are no male werewolves. You knew that, right?) What’s a girl – er, wolf to do?
Go natural, of course.
All-natural soaps are a necessity to the lycanthropes among us. The Rain and Citrus Zing scents are especially popular among the werewolf set. After a turn in their wolf-skin, it’s not only undesirable to reek of fur, it’s downright dangerous. Being caught means being subjected to a “cure” – only the cure can kill. Masking that eau-de-wolf with one of our yummy, natural scents is the best way to ensure that a werewolf’s hidden identity stays . . . well . . . hidden.
Of course, all those moonlit gatherings in the woods mean one thing in the summer – bugs. And lots of them. Our werewolf clients rave about our Bug Off line. Again, their strong senses mean that chemical insect repellants are out, but sitting around the ceremonial fire, waiting to transform, a werewolf’s tender human skin needs protection against the things in the woods that bite. Well – protection against the *other* things in the woods that bite.
Remember, werewolves begin their transformation on their sixteenth birthdays – the perfect time to introduce them to our products with one of our gift boxes. Including our dog soap is a subtle way of saying “I know what you are, but don’t worry, I won’t tell!”
