The guy poking his tongue out at nobody (!) in particular, this might be the devil of logistics. The rest of what you find in today's quick sketch: No idea, really. It was a procrastination exercise a couple of days ago.
Well, maybe it is comparable to Odin's ravens: Bringing the news of the world. Here's a the wikipedia article to this mythological picture. Thinking and looking into my sketch again: Actually, my figure has one eye only, too, like Odin. So there you go: It might not be a devil, but rather "Odin, the furious one" (link here).
So there we go: my sketched raven actually brings you news.
First things first: PHI-une rose de Kandahar is going to come back. Yes. Uff. It will be end November, though. The closer you are to Switzerland, the earlier probably. By December 1 PHI-une rose de Kandahar should be back in the US, in the stores, on the shelves, too.
Yes: I made enough to offer it to most stores, also Italy.
I haven't been talking about this rose de Kandahar that's sold out since early this year because, well... because it was a logistics and sourcing nightmare from A to Z. I will go into some details next week, I guess. Some of the details are interesting, as they highlight the troubles that you run into when you, a brand, tries to do things differently. You know: Rare raw materials, hand made flacons, exclusive packaging... so there you go: Next week more's to come.
And then: I got my shipwire newsletter this morning, telling me to "land my inventory early". Specifically: Before November 20. Shipwire runs my warehouse shelves in the US. Not that it is entirely new to me, but... suddenly, suddenly, it is there: The shiver running down the spine. Oh, my ...the holidays are coming! And like every year: We are not entirely prepared for it, yet. Time to get into "land your inventory early"-mode now. Off we go to the factory. Packing perfume.
