Right now I am sitting in front of my room at the Harmony Motel in 29 Palms, heading for the Joshua Tree National Park soon where I will stroll around and do some sketches if I feel like it. Maybe I will just hang out on a boulder and do not much more than watching the sky and the boulders.
I have been visiting this place for many years, many times, and there is nothing that I MUST do here, which is nice. It will be a busy weekend in San Francisco with events at the Tigerlily Perfumery, April 7 later afternoon the full tauer immersion, April 8 a gathering of 12 independent perfumers at Tigerlily with talks and discussions and all. Thus, a moment of nothingness, here in Joshua Tree, does good.
Actually, I am super excited as I will present two more scents from my STORIES line. There is a great article on Fragrantica that explains it all. (click here) It is exciting also because for the STORIES I do not have to worry about what's next and how to keep up with stock and logistics and all. They just come and go when I am there at an event and it feels very liberating. I also do not have to worry about how many we will sell. I look at it as an installation, a presentation of something rare. Of course, they will sell, and sooner or later I have to think about making more and all, but for the moment I can just relax and look forward to San Francisco.
There, in San Francisco, at Tigerlily, sits also a bottle of the unreleased attar. The attar that is inspired by many things, a trip to Saudi Arabia, Oudh and more; I have sent 200 of it, 1 ml rollerball bottles to VIP clients. I am thinking about sending more of these, offering them on my site, as I got a lot of queries for it. We will see....
Right now, I am enjoying the sun and am blinking and am looking forward to the boulders that will still be here when I am long gone.
