Today’s picture: A quick selfie, from yesterday, taken during my Sunday hike, somewhere in the middle of the ascension (total 1000 meters up and down again), sort of agitated, or better: second excited state (for details about what an excited state in physics actually means: click here for an informative wiki article), not knowing yet […]

serious hiking ahead

Hurray! We shipped what we needed to ship this week and the last boxes are out of the house and out of the way. It felt like a maze the last few days, boxes piled up everywhere and flacons and paper and…cozy factor=zero. I will do some clean up, minimal though, because we (W.-factor and […]

We have 10 winners

I just returned from a fabulous hike up there in the mountains, where it is cooler than the 35 or so we had down here in Zurich. And first thing back home: I picked the happy winners of the draw from the 5 year perfumery blogging anniversary. Here they are: Winners of a perfume, full […]
