travelling to Geneva..

I am in a hurry, getting stuff packed and transporting myself to Geneva.
As announced I will not be able to post or comment much (few exceptions).
Well, I guess when I am back here on Friday, there will be a post coming then, at least one before the weekend.

Thus, in the mean time, I send you my best wishes and please....drop by at the newest NZZ Folio with Luca Turin's column, I liked it a lot

You will find it soon here (I hope this link will work, as it is not online yet, I just guessed) http://www-x.nzz.ch/folio/curr/articles/parfum_engl.html

You can scroll to the bottom of the page, and the English version is linked there, Andy.

"best since Coty" -- La La!

I just woke up, so I'll babbly more coherently your way later. Congrats!

At last, there you are in NZZ Folio! And you're going away just when the orders are bound to start rolling in? ;-)

By coincidence, I'm wearing L'Air du Désert Marocain right now, and though I've handed Turin's ass to him on a platter many a time, I'm going to concede this point: Regarding your fragrance (and Chinatown), he's absolutely right. And I've smelled La Rose Jacqueminot, too.

Beau travail, Andy!

Not sure LT has that kind of ability to drive sales. When he reviewed and praised Profumo from Italy it didn't generate one sale. Andy has quite the lovely, loyal following on various forums, and got to Lucky Scent all by his sweet lonesome. Have fun with this, Andy and release your next perfume soon!

I agree, I don't think Turin makes or breaks a fragrance either (for instance: what the hell happened to Dazzling Silver, which he loved so much?), but NZZ Folio is what you call a general readership publication (and a class act too), widely read and admired, so it's bigger publicity than just a mention in the perfumed blogosphere. Can't hurt, anyway. Those of us who are fanatics know about these scents already, of course!

Hope you arrived safely in Geneva.

Fabulous Andy! We all knew that you were brilliant anyway.

Hi Tania:
Since I don't speak German except for a smattering of Old German kept alive by my grandmother's family, I didn't realize the scope of Duftnotes. So you're saying this is as big a deal as when Andy got mentioned in Swiss magazines and papers? Great! Break that hippie's rep outside of the perfume blogspheres, lol.

Andy, I tried to post this earlier, but got an error message. Hope this gets through. I posted the duftnotes lin in my Yahoo group of 900 people. Hope it gets you a lot more notice and sales ;-)

Dear perfume lovers
thank you all for your nice compliments that I appreciate very much. I finally managed to get WLAN access and try to cope with my mails.
Tania: I am glad that you agree with Luca Turin and I have to admit.... I have to visit la Rose Jacqueminot!
Anya:Yes, the Folio is very important for us. I is produced by NZZ, and the Duftnote is -at least to my knowledge eagerly awaited and read, locally and also internationally. And thank you for posting in your group!
Barry: Geneva is wonderful, the weather is great, and I sit right next to a gorgeous "Glycinia" that smells wonderful.

Hi Andy,

Wow! What a great shot of praise for your perfume! Of course we already knew how good it was, but it's nice to hear it from Luca Turin.
