If you have not done so, now is the time to catch the chance to win a Tauer scented soap: "LIKE" woman's picture on facebook. Brian Pera hosts a give away with 30 scented soaps that I have sent him, called "MANDARINES AMBRÉE", made for the occasion. You cannot get them anywhere. The only thing you have to do to enter the draw: Like Woman's picture on facebook. Here is the link http://www.facebook.com/womanspicture .
Brian Pera announced this draw on Evelyn Avenue, under "latest", by the way, and always worth checking. There, you find more on Tableau de Parfums, Woman's picture and what it is that Brian and me have cooking together these days. I got the last packaging zero series part on which I need to give the ok before it goes into production: The envelop for the 7 ml purse spray. This is the last piece and it is simple, like an envelope, to keep costs down, but protective, and will be in line with the sample envelop, and distinguish itself from the packed 50 ml flacon. And now I have to wait until all labels and envelops and boxes come in. As soon as they do I will publish pictures, as I cannot wait to share.
Initially, I wanted to pack the purse spray in a box, too. But I figured, that the purse spray does not need an expensive, vintage inspired box, like we get it done for the 50 ml flacon: With linen texture, printed card board inlays and all that. I rather try to offer it for a cent or two less.
Yesterday, on the way to the movies, my book keeper and me discussed on the stock we have these days and the expenses that we face the next weeks. For this year, my investments are sort of over. My stock grew heavily and the new brand Tableau de Parfums is all paid for from my savings. Building this brand is expensive, but important: Tableau de Parfums is different to Tauer Perfumes, in its aesthetics, in its fragrant language, in its source of inspiration. I cannot wait to share the first perfume, Miriam, early October in Los Angeles, at Luckyscent, who supported it all.
