What you see to the right is a picture of the going to be flacon, 50 ml for the Lonestar Memories.
It is a simple flacon with a functional pump spray, spraying 80 micro liter.
I have thought about it a long time... I need to streamline things a little bit...therefore, I have decided for a neutral flacon which will allow me to later also use it for other creations that might follow.
I also liked its understatment appearance and they way it feels in my hand: Not too big and not too large.
The bottles are ordered and I get the longer the more nervous.

Then arrived the business cards today; slightly shiny surface showing my coordinates in english, only "Parfumeur" is French. I thought it sounds much better than "perfumer"... ...ouhhh, I am proud. I will now include one business card with every perfume leaving my little factory. On the back of the card it will say handwritten "Enjoy! Andy Tauer

And now, my best wishes to you all...Enjoy! Andy

The bottle looks wonderful Andy.

The business cards sound great too!The thing that sets you apart from other 'Parfumeurs' is that you go the extra mile (Km) to make the customer feel important.

Hi Andy
I've been evaluating so many bottles it isn't even funny. And the tops! That's the one area I *may* go custom. I was leaning towards a bottle very similar to yours, but now I'm in an oval disc mood ;-)

Oh, then there's the labels. And the splash vs. spray, and the box, and the silkscreening, hot stamping, etc., etc.

I'm waiting until next week after Mercury goes direct for my decision, lol.

Hi Anya
I know exactly what you mean. And to make things worse, we also have to think about reliability of suppliers, minimal order numbers and availability of a certain bottle in the near and further future. ... but then: I like it, it is creative work, somehow, and allows to dream a dream of bottles, all nicely labelled flying from here to there.
Dear Jenny
My best wishes for your upcoming weekend,too and : it feels just great!
Dear S2L
The worlds kind of fit together. right now, I wounldn't like to miss either one or the other. But if things go on like this... ...we will see.

Dear Heather
The other Lonestar people, Juvena, is silent as an Egyptian grave, 4 am in the morning, before the tourists find their way in.
I hope they will at least be nice enough to send an answer. If not: Not my problem anymore. I was told that legally, I am not obliged at all to get their ok for a name that is just similar.
So, let's wait and see.

Dear Barry
Thank you very much.
Of course, in order to be honest with myself, part of the things I do is compensation of , let's say, semi-professional appearance. I can not afford to have shiny golden printed cardboard boxes.....but I guess, this is not that important anyhow.

Have a nice, sunny weekend

If Juvena didn't get permission from the folks in Texas to use "Lonestar", you shouldn't have to get permission from them.:-)
