Some updates from the Laboratory
The past couple of weeks have been a little insane. It seems I underestimated the demand for Bourbon - it had been sold out for a while and I knew some people were waiting for it but I was nearly overwhelmed with orders and basically the whole lab was turned into a shipping fulfillment center. I’m not complaining at all, but it can be intense when so much comes at once.
Now that I’m caught up on all that shipping, I’ve taken some time to source a bunch of raw materials needed to make some fresh big batches with the intention of having everything in the main line well stocked this fall and holiday season. Also working on some subtle packaging changes that will begin to roll out slowly. But more importantly for the sake of this journal, I’m shifting some focus back over to the Laboratory Series and its next release.
I think after Jupiter and Linden, I have the kind of “fresh” takes out of my system. I imagine some of you might not have expected releases like those but part of the point of this series is to try stuff out that I hadn’t done before. Now, I’m ready to go a little (or a lot) darker for the next release. I recently saw A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, a movie that has been on my radar a couple of times since it came out in 2014. This one really stuck with me, such a wild combination of ideas. I wonder if the atmosphere and feeling of that film could be captured in a perfume… I’ll be thinking about it.
Here’s a music playlist for those of you who might be interested. A collection of tracks from albums I’ve been playing in recent months.
