Love at first sight

So, I got this phone call the other evening. And being a child born and raised in the sixties I believe in vibes and drugs: Drugs as an efficient tool to harm your physical performance and to transform your psyche, usually to the worse. Vibes are more useful, they allow picking out a colourful wave in a band of grey lines; feeling these vibes, you narrow the bandwidth of your antenna and at the same time you open up, unlock the door and let your fellow mammal in.
So, I got this phone call and saw beautiful waves in all colours of the spectrum. It turned out to be the most interesting phone call since a while. Besides these colourful vibes, an epic praise of my perfumes Le Maroc pour elle and L’air du désert marocain for sure helped to feel very sympathetic…..

It was a pleasure talking with Mr. Wuchsa, charming owner of “aus Liebe zum Duft”. In a first approximation, he is THE niche perfume expert in Germany, and his shop features about everything there is worth collecting in terms of niche perfumes. His e-shop is a dangerous place to visit for perfume lovers because there are just too many goodies to go for. And he runs a blog in German with high addition factor, too. Thus, we discussed among many other things why my perfumes are different and the synopsis of this discussion: I invest in what’s going into my perfumes. It is the ingredients, including a decent amount of love. Which is ok, however: The key issue for all nice perfumers is to get known. It is not sufficient to produce a dream perfume with the most beautiful rose and jasmine scents going in there, hard to get materials, assembled with love, ….people have to know it is out there.

So, I got this phone call and Mr Wuchsa is fond of my perfumes and based on our discussion, I assume this is why “Aus Liebe zum Duft” will sell my perfumes in Germany, starting now.

Sweet Andy - you are already in his webshop! Well, at least your name is in the left colum, but no products - just yet. Another scoop for our soon-to-be-extremely-famous Swiss Perfumeur - well done my friend! Your are on such a roll, that I start to feel a twitch of jelousy, but you are worth it all:-D
Hugs and love,

Oh man. I feel like I ought to send you flowers or something - the whole world is opening itself up to your beautiful creations, and I could not be happier for you. It's like one great opportunity after the other revealing itself lately. Honestly now, to where do we all send the flowers and champagne? I can only just think, someday, when you are big and famous and oh so haughty, I will be able to say I knew you way back when... heh ;)

That is really, really weird Andy. This is no word of a lie. Last night I was laid in bed thinking about you.......no! not what it seems......LOL! I was thinking about your scents and that they would be ideal for somewhere like Georg's shop. I look at your blog and there it is. Spooky or what?

Dear Barry

Dear Ylva
I am glad that you are up and posting again. Are you better and has spring finally reached Skandinavia? Please, don't feel jealous.... you know: At the very end you are in a better position... I have almost no time left to play around. I think I am getting old and serious ;-)
Seriously: Thank you for your post and take good care on you!
Dear Katie
Thank you! Sometimes I have a bad memory...forgetting about everything that is not important. But I promise you: There are a few perfume lovers and fellow bloggers I will not forget! And if I do: Tell me.....
PS: No flowers, no champagne... I got the flower (red rose) from W. and the champagne is waiting in the cellar...
Thank you Katie

Andy, wonderful news! But it is only the beginning of what your labors (and let us not forget formidable talent) deserve. You know what I want to see next? Your scents in Barney's in NYC. :-)

Truly brilliant news and absolutely well deserved - though I haven't smelled Maroc pour elle yet, I know if it's half as good as my love L'air, it's worth Georg stocking! hurrah!

Lovely news about a lovely man. It is wonderful to see all the excitement and recognition happening around your creations. And you're right about the vibes -- heck, the Prince was feeling them, too ;-)

You're a closet hippie, aren't you, Andy? LOL!

Dear Andy

Its a shame he only blogs in German because then me the non eloquent Brit could and would chip in.

Is he going to blog about you? - I assume he will. Next stop Vogue.

I sent your samples to Vogue by the way!!

Very interesting blog! I just started a very general purpose perfume site that is more geared towards newcomers.
