In need of another card going with shipments

I did not run out of the fragrance PHI-une rose de Kandahar, but I run out of the printed cards with the PHI-bottle illustration that looked like that: I still have some of the No-14 Noontide Petals illustration cards, but it is about time for a new card, in flyer format, 300 gr per m2. […]

looking at air du désert packed

I got myself a Walimex LED round light. It  is a light source that is like a circle. In the middle there ‘s a free round area to put your camera through. It is a better way of lightening objects, I think. Here’s a link to a picture of this piece of techware. You know: […]

ahead, among other things, eau d'épices

There we go: Eau d’épices is on its way back, very soon, onto the shelves in tauerville, and a few other scentvilles in the world. In order to celebrate this happy news, I came up last Friday with today’s picture, a watercolor painting, done with watercolor pencils that I was given as a gift and […]

among other things ahead, spring

Hurray: Another sunny, spring like day seems to be ahead of us. Wonderful. Today, when I got up, the moon was still shining, but it was doing so under an immaculate dark sky. I got up early today, like: really early, driven out of bed by a clear vision of a full email box, and […]

it happens

Fragrant greetings from Zurich, where I am behind commenting the comments on yesterday’s post and some facebook posts. Sorry! But here’s the thing: When headind for the factory, I run out of my data package for Switzerland on the ipad, and loading more data by paying for them did not work. It turned out yesterday […]

straight ahead

This post is going to have two topics. It may be a bit “anti” and I am sorry if I might disillusion you. The topics are linked, though. I do not know if you have ever witnessed a stampede. It is impressive and freightening. I was once in a little stampede by cows. Here’s the […]

Il minimo culturale, que vuole

On Friday, I did a photo of the 02-l’air du désert marocain flacon with its outer packaging. I kind of like it a lot, as there is a certain unpretentiousness going with it. … you know: No pseudo vintage arrangements of objects, no human beings, no body fluids, saliva or alike, a presentation stripped down, […]

factory and light

The other day, Gilbert tweeted on Twitter about the work of filling bottles. I am not a good twitterer really, usually, I am just overwhelmed by the flow of messages there. But, yesterday, when working there in the factory, filling Carillon pour un ange into bottles, in brightest sunlight, it came to my mind that […]

it started with stock in cliplock bottles

Today’s picture shows you a clear bottle with a cliplock, sketched this morning during a coffee break. I saw the bottle when opening the cupboard in order to get explorer sets ready, in one of the upper shelves, a vestige from a past that is not so far away. There we go: Today’s post deals […]

spectacular on many levels

The regular readers of this blog know about my Sunday rituals. Human beings need structures and I am no exception there. Most Sundays you see me jogging my half marathon in the hills leading out of Zurich’s west. Yesterday was an absolutely spectacular jog: Starting in bright sunlight and temperatures that are still unusual for […]
