making of

into a new week, juggling news and novelties

This week will be exciting and busy, like last week. I am moving forward with novelties that will make their appearances here, soon. This week will see me  producing a lot of samples; stocking up for existing fragrances, and for Phi, une rose de Kandahar. I will need them by early November, as I plan to offer samples early November, on a pre-sales base, with shipment mid November. Today’s picture shows you yet another label and format for this new scent: the label for the 15 ml explorer set size. It is with the printing company now and I should get it in about 2 weeks, again: In time for shipment mid November. The 50 ml size bottles will be filled next week, but there we got all labels ready.

Some of you might wonder, whether I will do draws for this scent. Actually, I won’t, except that I will do my advent calendar 2013, as usual. But you have the chance to win samples, exclusively on perfumeoflife. I will be shipping 100 samples to the US very soon, and I recommend visiting perfume of life now, to make sure you’re in.

Together with the labels for the 15 ml explorer set size PHI, I sent more 15 ml size labels: Le Maroc pour elle, Rêverie au Jardin, Vetiver Dance, and ZETA- a linden blossom theme will all go into 15 ml flacons, by mid November, at the latest. So that’s kind of cool, and I am curious what is going to happen then. You know: You never know.

And then, there’s Ingrid (click here for a snapshot of Ingrid in discussion with Mackie, on vimeo) , the third scent in the Tableau de Parfums series: I filled the first 50 ml bottles, the first purse spray size flacons, and I so love this scent. I haven’t smelled it for a long time, as it was just sitting in my cellar and matured to perfection without me doing anything. Filling the first bottles was a nice surprise, a fresh look at a story that I worked on quite a while ago. I will present, together with Brian Pera, Ingride in LA, November 16, at the scentbar. Thus, I will need to ship some Ingrid over there in the next 2 weeks.

And then, there’s more news ahead. But I need to wait until all is ready before I can send you there.

Have a great start into your week!
