The interview last Friday went excellent and I was lucky enough to be interviewed by a truly charming lady with lots of interest in perfumery. And I think she did quite some reading beforehand. Thus, I was very happy and the pictures that the photographer took of me, with my perfumes on my living table will hopefully turn out well, too. The sun was shining just perfectly through the window, the black stone table reflected the colours of the perfume bottles that I arranged together with some other bottles on the table. Thus, the photographer decided to do the pix there and not the real thing, the working space that you have seen in my last post….lucky me! And, of course, I am proud and rather euphoric. The article is about to appear on Thursday, about 130′000 homes get it in their letterbox (it is a free newspaper), and while jogging yesterday, Werni and me were thinking about how to catch this moment and move on from here:
First we figured out that on Thursday morning, he should join me using the public transport, to guard me from too aggressive fans begging for an interview.
Then we realized that I need a window seat in the tram (needs to be arranged beforehand), allowing me to salutate the people that we pass by. Probably, I will use a white cherkief, perfumed with lots of l’air du désert marocain, waving it out of the window, like the Queen in London, but olfactory much more pleasing. (W. needs to figure out how to get rid of the window glass beforehand… a minor detail).
We also figured out that we need to inform the local TV for live coverage about my using the public transport. And eventually the police to make sure I am safe on my way downtown Zurich, where Pascal in his shop waits for the perfumer, to help him out pleasing the frenetic masses.
And then, the day after, on Friday, I will talk with my personal coach W. again, planning the next step which might be a thoughtful discussion with Larry King, or a nice chat with Ms Oprah W.
