welcome to autumn

It got chilly. And colorful. Nice! Here in Switzerland, autumn made a sudden and energetic appearance. The temperatures dropped, there was a storm and the trees turned colorful. (when did that happen?….) It is the perfect season for all the warm and cozy offerings, like l’air du désert marocain or the wild strong Lonestar memories. […]

new year, new perfume

Welcome to 2020! I hope that you had a fabulous start into a fabulous 2020. I sure did, spending some time under a fantastic blue sky in the mountains. Down here in Zurich, there is a thick cloud of fog on top of us. Up there: it is warm and sunny and peaceful. So, I […]

an update about shipping

Greetings from Zurich where we survived the heat… Here follows an update about shipping perfumes. We still cannot ship samples or miniatures regularly in Europe. Overseas: we cannot offer samples either. For Europe, we are testing new shipment logistics these days, on selected markets, like Spain and the Netherlands. If this works, we will add […]

Important news: no more sample shipments possible

Here’s an important news that is somewhat terrible. As of today, we cannot send samples to the world anymore because of stricter implementation of the rules for transport of dangerous goods/perfume in Switzerland. The authorities/Swiss Post started to even send single 1.5 ml samples back. So there you go…. there is no alternative/affordable shipper and […]

Payment card industry data security standard compliant and back from sick bay

Hi I was sick for a while, but now I am back and running and trying to catch up. All projects had to be postponed, though, to Q3, like… September. Ah… well. There is time. And on a side note: this morning I got my certificate again, confirming that I am compliant with the payment […]

Please be aware that orders processing takes longer due to the holidays. We are working as hard as we can to process your orders as soon as possible (with single sample orders being processed a bit slower as they are merely a service and not a business). Having said that: we cannot influence the speed […]

Les Années 25 is gone

This morning I sold out. Les Années 25 is basically gone. The fragrance is still available as miniature (here is the link) . I made around 500 full size 50 ml bottles (a bit more actually, to compensate for store testers that do not sell). What I kept in my stock to serve my online […]

40 days until the holidays

It is 40 days from here to X-mas. And believe it or not: I have the impression that I can already feel it. Shipments take a touch longer than normal and the queue at the post office is a touch longer, too.  Thus, a bit early ( I know) but still: if you consider getting […]

Swiss made

In a good week from now, I will be traveling to Florence for the Pitti Fragranze, THE niche show in Italy, next to Esxence. I am very much looking forward to it. There are not too many Swiss brands there and I am one of the few showing up there who still produces (mostly, as […]

white frost

Yesterday, the sun showed again, after a couple of days under a thick fog cloud. I went jogging, up the hill, and found myself in a fairytale landscape. All trees glittering in bright sunlight, covered with white frost. Amazing! The picture only vaguely reflects this magical moment. What a perfect start the jogging in crisp […]
