  • l'oudh

    I have sent the newsletter out and since then I am a little bit under water. Thank you to all of you who ordered. The newsletter was about the miniature of PHI-une rose de Kandahar added to the miniatures (there are just two right now: PHI and LDDM, aka air du désert marocain), available here.

    And I announced that the l'oudh, that I described in my MAG issue 04, is also available in 50 ml, and as sample (1.5 ml spray). Here's the link to the l'oudh. And here the link to the sample size The miniature of l'oudh is sold out. I made 500 of these to go together with the MAG....

    What is next? I will go to the post office, dropping packs and envelops. And tomorrow, I will fly to London. On Friday, I will meet my retailer partners there, Les Senteurs, for a discussion about what's next. And on Saturday, there's the award ceremony of the Institute of Art and Olfaction. I was a judge, helping them evaluating the many perfumes that they got for their award programe, and I am looking forward to meeting many friends there.

    And then, well.... then I will send the MAG to the printing company and will start preparing my Montreal trip. There again: I will meet friends and perfume lovers and my retail partners at Etiket. It is  a busy and happy spring here in tauer land.



  • working on the next issue of the Tauer MAG

    These days, on the side, I am working on the next issue of the Tauer MAG, scheduled to be available in May on my website. I got all the texts, mine and the contribution articles. This edition will come with a lot of content from external contributors, like Persolaise, Eddie Bulliqui, Roberto Drago, my Italian distributor. This edition will also be translated into Italian, for my Italian fans and friends, distributed in the end through the stores selling my fragrances. Getting this done means: spending $$$$ on professional translations. But I think I owe it to my Italian perfume lovers. They often -because shipping to Italy is not possible because of customs - are being served late or not, depending on whether I can bring in a product in a distribution scheme. Some, like the body oils, with low margins, I cannot offer there. But at least, if all goes according to plan, I can say thank you through this upcoming edition of the MAG.

    So.... I am layouting things now, putting pictures there and text in Adobe's indesign and trying to get all the formats right and so on. I am doing this on my portable microsoft surface. Sometimes, I think I am ready for a larger screen. But that's another story.

    Ah, and yes: I am doing this whole MAG thing because I feel that I can make a difference in a very, very confusing market.
