Yesterday, in the factory, under my tauerville sign that I got from a friend, years ago, to celebrate the opening of the two rooms where I spend most of my time these days, yesterday, I made today’s blog picture. Very,  very wet. An experiment really. Kind of out of control. You see how the colors […]


pentachord samples online

Well, well. I guess this is one of the most exciting days this year. For me at least. I start offering Pentachords samples, individually or as part of the discovery set, on my website, and so does Luckyscent. And today, Elena from the PerfumeShrine blog started the blogging round on Tableau de Parfums and Woman’s […]


Getting ready for the pentachords

This is a short post, as I am a bit tired after preparing a few things for the upcoming PENTACHORDS launch, and because of the heat that starts to drain energy from my brain, putting it somewhere else and as I have to hit the bike to go downtown to meet with partners. The pentachords […]

These days, I am sort of stuck inside, stocking up for autumn. Today’s picture shows you some pentachords flacons,  on their way to getting the finishing touch: The white wooden pentachords top cover.

Levkojen and PENTACHORDS presentation in June.

Today’s picture shows you a quick photo that I took yesterday before giving the bunch of Levkojen aka Matthiola away. I bought them at a flower shop nearby where I stop on a regular basis. The woman owning the shop buys a lot of flowers that are fragrant and she cares for special flowers you […]

more violet flowers

We will hit summer like temperatures again this week. This is nice, as it brings me back into T-shirt-all-day territory. On the other hand, the first tulips came, saw the sun and left a day or two later. For some of the delicate spring flowers these temperatures are already too much. I guess this is […]
