still going green

Yesterday, I packed 240 kg perfume and because this is so super boring I took breaks.

Yesterday, […]

It is spring in Zurich, for sure and for real and it is fantastic. The hyacinths are in bloom on the veranda, more than last year as I planted more bulbs in autumn. Not all of them are equally fragrant and they do not smell exactly the same. But they smell and it is very […]

I was experimenting with spatula, brushes and lot! of water.  Not every experiment really works. On the perfume side of my daily life things work out nicely […]
