paper work

Next week, hard to believe right now, I will be in LA and on October 7 we will all get together to officially launch Miriam at Luckyscent’s scentbar, the first fragrance from the Tableau de Parfums series. Thus, it is urgent time to get things organized that need to be done beforehand. One of these: […]

Tableau de Parfums


yesterday, we got another larger delivery. Pentagonal tin boxes. A huge pile in boxes of 24 each on 7 palettes. Today’s picture shows you these. It was yesterday that I was even more happy about the new warehouse than before.  Finally room for the 5000 boxes. And almost no carrying around: Just put the stuff […]


Pentachords launch and video

first things first: It was a great Pentachords launch event and party in Rome last Friday. My thanks go to Campo Marzio at Via Vittoria for their support and for their organization. I enjoyed it so much so to get together with perfume lovers and see their reactions, smelling the pentachords line. As the fragrances […]

A few tough decisions ahead. … I hope to be able to talk about the upcoming launches as soon as a few decisions are taken. Thus, what could be better than […]

leaving work bench for a while

I am busy with the last minute preparations before leaving for London in an hour or two. And, to be honest, I am leaving happily, also in light of the last few days that were really, really, really busy.  Looking forward to fish and chips or alike, a pint and getting together with lovely folks […]

London party

Today’s picture shows you a scan of a protea, a plant like from an other planet. Actually, it is from South Africa and we got the flower as a gift from guests yesterday. Spacey, right? End next week, I will be -not on another planet- but another place: I visit the UK again. If you […]
