on labels and stickers

In a previous post I learned in the comments section that I forget from time to time to outline simple but important things when it comes to what I do. OK, there we go: Everything you get from tauer is hand made in Switzerland by… tauer. Actually, it says so on every sample and every […]

Scented cards

Yesterday, I got the scented cards, perfumed with the scent of the CARILLON POUR UN ANGE, delivered to my house. Hurray! They smell -like the test we did beforehand- gorgeous and incredibly close to what you get out of the flacon. Thus, this week is definitely a Carillon week. These cards are a bit difficult […]

details on rose absolute

This morning, reading the comments section of yesterday’s post, I wondered how many roses are needed for the rose absolute that I poured into the mixture of the Incense rose. The mixture I did yesterday is for about 500 flacons later (25 liters) and I put about 183 grams of rose absolute into it. This […]

a box of fragrant stuff for Incense rosé

Yesterday, I got all the production bottles from the cold cellar, for the production of another batch of Incense rosé. Today, with all chemicals and raw materials on room temperature I will mix, and hence no condense water will be forming inside when opening the aluminum bottles.

self sustaining communication circles

today, I continue boxing and preparing orders for pick-up later this week and next week. Thus, this post is short, but comes with a punch line. In between, when I cannot sit straight and patiently anymore, I will dilute the next batch of Vetiver dance, one of the most under-appreciated perfumes in my line. At […]

So it felt like early spring yesterday. The sun got through the early morning fog and it got warm and it truly felt like spring for a moment. Actually, I only wanted to get rid of a few pieces of paper on my desk, but what started innocently as a little engagement turned into a […]

weekend greetings

It is Friday and time to write a few mails, follow up a few orders from suppliers and to send my early weekend greetings. In anticipation of traveling later this year to Southern California again: Today’s picture is a take of a pink flower, seen April 2010 in Joshua Tree. Enjoy!
