This is beta

Yes.... there we go. The last couple of days were busy and the next couple of days will be equally busy.

Busy because I got large orders that need to be packed and get ready. Today's picture shows you a box, with 2x 24 pcs as I pack them for air transport. The fragrances are in a 24 pcs box. Surrounded hermetically by packing paper,in a special sturdy cardboard box, and (you don't see that) sealed by a special tape and then sealed further and labelled and stored in another room for pick-up later.

There, in the other room on the third floor, I still have empty space and right now a pile of 14 of these boxes waits for pick-up, to fly to Saudi Arabia in the end. But wait: Things are more complicated. First, the goods will be collected, go to Germany, then to Dubai, then to Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, the goods go into a database for cosmetic goods and need to be "released for import", so to say. Lucky me: I do not have to do that but my partner, www.lodore.com, does so.

Every time I got a pile like that finished and have it up there in the third floor I go like "uff!" and move on.

Right now, I am moving on with my body oil story. I got my post special price for NON dangerous goods and on that side: I am ready! I got the first body oil mixed and ready. Got a simple spray bottle, 50 ml, and wait for labels coming from the printing company. Then I will be ready. This is beta.

I showed the first body oil to a friend and she went like " oh my... this is ... amazing!". The scent does not last very long, and this is by intention. But when applying the body oil, you get this amazing naturally rendered rose on a gourmand base, or I get it, and I am loving it. And the oil? Well, it is pure jojoba oil and absorbs perfectly and is actually the best you can get for your skin.

The body oil is 100% free of added preservatives, stabilizers, parabens, phthalates etc. Just the best jojoba oil there is, cold pressed, and fragrance (10%).

I will be able to ship this to most places (except places like Italy, where there is a customs issue and where I have an exclusivity contract). This will be a tauer exclusive. And a couple of business friends told me not to do it. I don't listen. You have to do what you have to do. But to be on the safe side: This is BETA. Which is super exciting.

And with this, I am heading for the factory again: There are other shipments that need my attention.

  • Isn't that the Greek symbol PHI written on those boxes in the photo? That means that Saudi Arabia knows what wonderful fragrance this Rose de Kandahar is.
    I'm very curious about your body oil story and the shipping of it. That it is not very long lasting by intention, translates to me that you could as well make it last a full 24 hours, if you wanted to. This is BETA . . . and in the meantime I'm still happy with your ZETA.

  • Wow, fast action on the body oil idea! Very excited. Now I have to identify a mule to bring me some from the US. :-)

  • Good morning, Stephan,exactly.
    Actually: Saudi Arabia knows even more, from Air du désert marocain to Vetiver dance :-)
    By the way: I am getting another body oil done right now that lasts a bit longer :-)
    Enjoy your ZETA!
