11 years of air du désert marocain

It is 11 years that L’air du désert marocain exists. I launched it 11 years ago in the most simple flacon you can imagine (see picture of today). It has been quite a journey since then…. Overall, the journey brought me up to new lands and discoveries, but it was a bumpy way, with many […]


bestsellers et al

Good morning! Ui…. It’s been awhile since I’ve been talking here. It was utterly busy, in a peculiar way: We got a lot of shipments that needed to get out and shipments (by truck) mean: They tell you that they will come, somewhen.  And sometimes they forget you. Thus, I ended up, stranded a bit, […]


a list with 500 perfumes on basenotes

Good morning from Zurich, where I am getting ready for a new exciting week under a perfect blue sky. Last week was less perfect and saw me more in bed than in a vertical position, but we are sort of up and running again… One of last week’s highlights was: Grant Osborne’s list on : […]

printing cards

today, right now, somewhat bugged out, I am printing cards a gogo. For air du désert marocain. It is a bit annoying, because the printer has troubles fetching the cards, sometimes. Thus, it was quite some fiddling happening this morning in the house of tauer. But now, after setting some details and cheating the printer by […]

hot 'n stuff

It got hot here; and -quite normal in middle Europe-we do not have an air condition in the “factory”. Thus, it is the time of the year where I get out of the house early, do my stuff in the factory before it is getting too hot in there, and leave the factory for the paper and office work […]

what's up?

shipping air du désert marocain

I did not post a lot this week, but the last post  about some of the marketing mechanics found quite some interest: Great! I was not aware that talking about the rules of the game might find such an interest here. Again: Great! This week I was pretty busy with stocking up (Incense rosé) and […]
