Yesterday was the 3rd advent Sunday (already) and the countdown to X-mas runs faster and faster. Today's illustration of happy advent pictures misses a candle, in the sense that with every advent Sunday we light another candle, but there was no place really to put a third candle on the giraffe.

So we are moving fast towards X-mas. Saturday saw one highlight of the season, too. The traditional "Duftapero", that I run every year together with Pascal, the shop owner of the Zurich shop Medieval art&vie where everything around Tauer Perfumes started and where my fragrances are sold exclusively in Switzerland. A happy gathering with scents, literature, food and drinks and a good crow, enjoying the warmth of the season. I talked a bit about Gardenia sotto la luna and showed some of the ingredients that go into the scent and that helped me come up with a Gardenia scent that is inspired by the picture of a white flower blooming under the moon.

Now that this event is over, we are moving into the hot phase of X-mas preparations. Sort of. One of tasks: X-mas cards.

This year, it will be easy. I made many illustrations to choose from but I haven't made up my mind yet. I will print them myself on the printer. That's the easy part. Then I am supposed to write them in the next couple of days.

Most of them stay in Switzerland, so there is still time. But still.... the clock is ticking.
