day 13 of the advent calendar- an explorer set

This draw is closed. Thank you to all of you who participated and shared.

Today, day 13 of my advent calendar, I am a bit late. But on the other side: You can win an explorer set today (details of this set you find here on and you are free to pick three 15 ml size bottles of the set’s range if you win this prize. I will leave this draw a little longer open, like around the 15th. Thus, good luck.

Here, after a super busy Dec. 12, with our yearly scented gathering together with Medieval art&vie (the book store in Zurich selling all my products), after a long day and even longer night, and a couple of aspirin as Dec. 12 saw me walking around with a head that felt like somebody was hammering on it over night (yes, super timing!), thus after a super Saturday that was really fun, I will do (almost) nothing on this Sunday.

Except working on a couple of fun ideas that are totally not $$ related.

The scented gathering: Medieval art&vie and me saying thank you to our clients and fans and friends in and around Zurich. With scent, sparkling wine and some lectures. This time, I chose AMBER and AMBRA as topic, quite confusing actually (there is a great AMBRA article on Wikipedia). We sprayed and enjoyed natural vanilla CO2 extract, labdanum, some benzoin, and some Ambroxan (a lot of love for that molecule). It was really great, and after the event, traditionally, we organizers get together and look back at the year and our friendship. Always nice.

And no: My headache has nothing to do with the sparkling wine. I guess it is just the crazy weather these days. It feels like spring; This again is totally perfect to work on some light spring perfume ideas 🙂

And here’s the fine print: we pick a winner using The soet ships from Zurich, Switzerland, with Fedex. And wherever you live, local taxes, VAT, and import fee may apply and are not covered by Tauer. The winner is responsible for making sure that they are allowed to import the prize. The draw is open for anybody, but winners from these countries should provide a mailing address elsewhere: Italy, Russia, Spain, Croatia, Greece.
