NZZ and see you soon

Fragrant greetings and thank you for visiting! I think this is the last post for about two weeks: I will be travelling for two weeks and it might well be that I don’t post on my blog. As always, before leaving, there is a plenitude of things to get done. This time, it was really, really a […]

photo session at tauerville

I could not resist: While I was posing for a photographer yesterday, I took some pictures of her, too. You see the result in today’s picture. But contrary to her (the photographer’s) super trooper camera, I was operating my Nokia’s camera. And contrary to her being a professional photographer, with an eye for all possible […]

perfume, in a soap

Today’s picture shows you a quick, slightly out of angle shot of the tauerville balance, one of the tools that you end up needing when mixing and creating scents. “volumes are not additive”, that’s what we were told in our chemistry class, years ago, and it is still true.

Welcome to 2013 and a word on new and old

Welcome to a brand new, excitingly fragrant and colorful 2013! Here’s what is happening in the perfume house of tauer these days: I got, no wrong: Tauer Perfumes got a new balance for weighing perfume formulas and I did a couple of final, last, ultimate control mixes. Among them: NOONTIDE petals dilution mixes. Oh my. […]
