Have you been breaking off little pieces of rabbit’s ears to nibble again? Do you start at the feet or chew off the nose? And those eggs, where do you start? Do you break into it with your teeth? Hmmmn…
Crumpling up all those little tell-tale bits of foil, I’m on my second cup of black coffee and packing away a lot of mess. Labels, bottles, tassels, boxes etc etc. I’ve been hard at work overhauling my logo design, product packaging and upgrading the merchandising of all products in my online shop. Many new batches (circa 2017/18) of my natural fragrances are now in circulation. The journey up to this moment has been largely about composing and developing the products. Blending perfume; …trialing, failing, learning and finally succeeding. A phase of development that was all about nose training and taking very small steps towards entering the market. The patron feedback was a powerful way to learn some stuff about what worked and what didn’t, and I sincerely appreciated all the marvelous support. Prices and products were tested and altered constantly (often according to stock levels) and as compensation for all the chaos, I gave away a lot of free stuff to thank all those that were so willing to play. The making phase is complete, and I’m now focused on developing and refining TRNP out in the front of the shop. The stock is stable, plentiful and beautiful. Time to clear away all the extraneous mess of my creative clutter and get busy running a ship-shape shop.
My Aromatics and Eau de Toilettes are actually eau de parfum strength (30% fragrance to medium ratio), but just contain less heavy base notes. The Aromatics range is proving very popular, and I’m delighted with how beautifully they have matured. I worked passionately on this range throughout the humidity and heat of Summer, and as Autumn unfurls, they are just right. They will also be radiant joys to wear in Spring. They are perfectly suited to the cooling off and the warming up seasons. Presented in 30ml spray atomisers, they fit beautifully into the nooks and crannies of corporate environments and professional lifestyles.
TRNP’s Lusso collection are top notch niche natural perfumes made in small batches (between 1 and 3 litres). Due to popular demand, several have evolved to a second or third batch iteration, and although the formulas are strictly adhered to, harvests and yields vary from year to year. I strive to rectify changes to the best of my ability, yet I just cannot go against nature. Having said that, they definitely keep improving in line with my blending skills. New and improved reformulations include: Mary Jane, Rococo, Rose Embers, Rose Potion, Attar of Roses, Ruby, Tallemaja, Bodhi and Ritual.
I won’t be offering any more discount coupons or sales, instead, I have restructured all of my prices to be the very best value on a permanent basis.
Have a beautiful, restful Sunday and … maybe eat a little carrot for the inner rabbit!
