The Snark Hunters were out in force at MCM Birmingham November 2017. The cat joined them for day one to much interest from the public.

Going to MCM Birmingham in November? We've got something special for the keen eyed visitor. We have in our employ a group of Snark Hunters looking for their bounty, and if they are lucky they might even bag the dreaded boojum.
The hunters are quite generous to the point they will be offering out some of their Snark Hunter Reward Tokens, which can be reedeemed for oodles of discounts off everything at one of the Scentopia trading posts at the event.
If you see the hunters at the event, say hi, compliment their attires, take a smashing photo, they are bound to be rewarding!

We got a visit from Catherine Dyer of Stranger Things fame; on-screen a ruthless murderous agent, in Wonderland one of the loveliest event guests we have come across. She loved Parma Violets and took some back to the US.
Lastly, big thank you to David Bidwell (the organiser of Doncanster's Monster Comic Con) he could not have done more to accommodate all of us trading and visiting the event. Thanks, David and can't wait for next year.

Who knew there was a bounty on Scentopia; a couple of Mandalorians caught up with us at Coventry Comic Con and had been hunting for us across the comic con market for months.
Fortunately it wasn't the cat's head they were looking for but Parma Violets Cosplay Spray to freshen up Jabba's Palace a bit.
Freshen up your den of iniquity and armour after a long day of looking for rebel scum:

This summer we had tea in the rain with the Mad Hatter. We asked him to try our new and experiemntal scents and he immediately mixed them all up into his teapot! He gave us his thanks and said they'd be great and convenient as teabags. So the Ingénieur mused for a while and The Hatter's Mystery Teabag was born. Not to be drunk you understand, the teabag contains 5 randomly selected extra petite room & fabric sprays from a range of over 20 flavours. Explore the 'Specials' in our shop.
Most popular product: Parma Violets, beating Pear Drops by a hair.

Stars of Time in Weston-Super-Mare is not your average Comic-con, it's almost on the beach... and next to a fun fair... and feels more like a summer party.
So it was under these unusual conditions our cat made his first public appearance. Specially made for Scentopia by Heidi of Cowley's Angels Cosplay group, the cat was greeted by the public eagar to take photos and stroke his fur.
A huge success, he'll be back again next month for Cardiff Comic Con.

"That's mine! And that's mine! And all that's mine!".
Danny John-Jules aka The Cat from Red Dwarf couldn't keep away from us, our Lemon Merangue Pie scent was like catnip to him. It was wonderful to see him taking the time to walk the floor and interact with the traders and especially come back to spend time with us on day two. What an awesome guy.

Just back from our latest outing to MCM Birmingham Comic Con. With over 50,000 visitors and a large contingent of cosplayers, it was a visual feast for the eyes. Amongst them were several 'Alices'; unfortunately we were rushed off our feet most of the day so only managed to snap a few of them in their natural surroundings behind our set :-D
Most popular item for the weekend: Parma Violets Room & Fabric Spray closely followed by Cherry Bakewell.

The early morning snow didn't deter hordes of cosplayers and convention fans at MCM Midlands in Telford, to the point that we hadn't finished setting up before purchases were required!
This was our second foray into comic conventions and today's valuable lesson was:
Set-up the night before ... arriving at 8am on the day was a nightmare, as we queued in the snow to get our trader passes, along with lots of other people. This left us in a bit of kerfuffle, ending up with a very short time to build our display and set out our wares.

I say, what an understatement: OK True Believers Comic Festival at Cheltenham Race Course was much more than OK, it was great.
Lady "Gruff" Darklis and The Ingénieur manned the Scentopia exhibit on the balcony with a great view of the entire arena.
Without a doubt the True Believers staff were exceedingly friendly, helpful and easy to find in their bright orange shirts!
Lots of fantastic cosplayers, some of which we managed to capture for a photographic pose behind our Wonderland exhibit: facebook.com/ScentopiaUK. Go see and like your favourites.
Most popular product: Rhubarb & Custard Shot Glass Candle (they will be available to buy online soon).

A person looking at the bath & shower gel asked:
When asked if they would like to sample the scent...
There have been a lot of people saying they have colds. Never mind Ebola, it must be the return of the Spanish Flu epidemic!
On approaching the Scentopia stall, whispered to her husband as they hurried past with eyes on the floor...
We are really getting worried about how many people go missing at these events.
When asked if they would like to have a sniff...
...except we don't do anything that smells of lavender!?!
We appologise. We had no intention of producing a fragrance reminiscent of the Workhouse.
Could someone give us directions to this store? We could save a mint on our manufacturing costs.
The email delivery boy needs caning; none of these emails have yet arrived!
When asked if they would like to smell an unusually-scented bubble bath...
When approaching someone who was showing an interest and asking if they would like a sniff of bubble bath...
Yet they continued to look at the product for a few minutes.
If you have an event coming up and need a stall that's different, run by very friendly and professional traders, get in touch.
We pride ourselves with making sure we attend our stalls for the full duration of the event, regardless of the success or lack thereof. If your event states an end-time of 4pm we will still be on full display and ready to accomodate your patrons until 4pm - and beyond, if required.
We will never let you down with a no show once the booking is confirmed.
We offer stallholder discount on all our products and will never be disparaging towards fellow stallholders or organisers, regardless of whether or not we are extended the same courtesy.
We are accomodating of change. Sometimes things don't go according to plan - we do like to help make an event work out for all, as long as it doesn't negatively affect Scentopia.
We don't mind competition but do ask that we are not situated in a proximity where scents may be confusing; our products are all about olfactory stimulation and sensation, which can be problematic when situated next to another stall offering strong-smelling foods, coffees, perfumes ... or lavender.
We also have delicate ears, so we ask not to be placed near sources of music, tannoys or loud sounds.
We wholeheartedly believe that bathing products can be exciting and that bath time is yet another way to cut it without leaving your home.
Scentopia invites you to revitalise your olfactory senses with unique fragrances that will fascinate and leave you mad as hops, feeling naturally refreshed.
We offer a range of handmade products that are never butter upon bacon, perfect for every occasion, leaving you looking and feeling lavish.
Don’t pipe off your precious time sluicing; shop with Scentopia and become a bathing beauty - your body will thank you.
At only 17, Elliot left college to become a representative for beauty bathing products. Being a bathing enthusiast, Elliot saw a cockum to make a flashy business with unique products. Elliot may not be a don, but he believes that good bathing products do not have to be made in a factory work-house; in fact he thinks that they should be made by a few men with a passion for good skin and exuberant smells.
Elliot promises that he will not sell you a dog: everything Scentopia sells is homemade by our team, and is as natural as possible.
Darklis is not a church bell; we assume this is because she is too busy being an ingenious thinker and a hard worker. When our team has forgotten important factors, she is stood there shaking her head, tutting and tapping her quill on her "thoroughly-noted" list. You can find Darklis lurking in the shadows of our office, sniggering at our spelling mistakes.
André makes up for his fly-rink with his fantastic web-development skills, graphic designs and all round enthusiasm. André is the man behind our lays and he thinks that Elliot has some strong ideas that should be broadcasted. André is also the man behind the website you are currently on, only because he managed to convince Elliot that newspapers and carrier pigeons probably weren't the best idea.
Here at Scentopia, we ensure all ingredients are vegan-friendly and as kind as possible to our patrons and the Empire (known and undiscovered territories).
With this in mind, a charity dear to our hearts is The Racehorse Welfare Centre, where champions (retired through injury or end of their racing career) are looked after. A place where the going's always good - put me down for a couple of Guineas!
To help support the upkeep of these beautiful creatures we have developed a signature scent in honor of one of their beloved beauties, Olive - Shop now.
