    • (the new one) December (12 different Ingredients for 12 months a year = December) top notes of lime and cardamom, and an overdose of Red Pepper.
    • STEAMPUNK Cedar blends with a velvety violets to Amour Fou, irradiated by Hesperidensternchen and soft bed on a gentle, skin-tight and warm base of elemi and Cashmeran.
    • Eau de Froehliche No. 3 (lime, cassis, rosemary, geranium, rose, sandalwood, incense, Cashmeran, savory)


    If you are interested in this pass, please let me know. We may be able to get more samples so even if this fills up, please put your name on the list and we'll do all we can to ensure that others can join us.

    These are good news.
    I am very happy about that the first packet is arrived.
    Package number two is determined also in a few days. I think so.
    Today, I will send another package with more Samples.
    And next week, then packet number four.
    I think then enough samples for 16 curious Base notes :-) are available.
    More Samples is not a problem for me.
    The main thing it's fun.
    Perfume should still be fun.
    One has to be just curious.

    Viele Grüße aus Berlin,
    Erik

    Ok, the third packet of samples is on the way and here some information in perfect english to the 4 scents (STEAMPUNK, JULY, DECEMBER and EAU DE FROEHLICHE 3) - Courtesy of Shane Costello of the webshop First in FRAGRANCE.

    STEAMPUNK
    In the beginning was ... the word: Steampunk. Erik Kormann was browsing through the internet and was fascinated by this movement, which has evolved from a literary phenomenon to a modern subculture. A kind of retro-futurism expressed through the love of art and of the Victorian era and has its roots in the works of Jules Verne and HG Wells. Thus, a diving bell is also the symbol that the graphic artist Jo Zarth transposed for Erik Kormann: A tribute to Verne's novel "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."

    Erik Kormann always wanted to create a fragrance with Atlas cedarwood - and one that is reminiscent of an old library with wood paneling that evokes wanderlust. This desire fitted perfectly to the steampunk theme which also abounds with explorers and adventurers. So all said and done: the idea was born and immediately implemented. The fragrance Steampunk honours its name: it is both nostalgic and hypermodern. Cedarwood blends with a velvety violet to create an intense “Amour Fou”, complemented by glowing Hesperides softly bedded on a gentle, skin-close and warm base of elemi and cashmeran. Erik does not reveal all of the fragrant notes so you can play the explorer and discover or test for yourself and we promise - it's worth it!

    The Flacon
    The Steampunk flacon in matt glass is complemented by a heavy metal lid in the form of a capped nut. Originally conceived as a splash flacon, the insert can be removed and the spray nozzle, which is included, can be screwed on.

    JULY
    Juli (or July) is the seventh month of the year and also a darn good fragrance that Erik Kormann shares with us as part of his “Monthly Fragrances” collection.

    Juli the fragrance comprises seven notes and this green creation suffuses all the hope of a wonderful Vetiver fragrance: Erik Kormann has skillfully interpreted this fine blade of grass and blended it with salty-smoky nuances. Adorned with Hesperides and decorated with its favorite companion cedarwood. They are joined by unfamiliar flowers of a delicate nature, gentle wisps of tangerine and the green foliage of fig.

    We’re certain that you’ll not only love this fragrance in July but also the whole year round.

    DECEMBER
    Twelve fragrant notes, twelve different ingredients for the twelfth month of the year: December.

    The eau de toilette is full of surprises and just like the hold of an old sailing ship which has returned home after a long journey of discovery, Erik Kormann’s fragrance Dezember (No. 12) awakens memories and holiday feelings. So why not take a trip right now, once around the world.

    The wanderlust begins with lime, cardamom and pink pepper (schinus molle), right here just behind the hatch to the cargo area, where the captain has stored the citrus fruits and spices. You only need to pop your head in and you're surrounded by sparkling, tangy spices and fruity hints of pepper, fragrances that sharpen the senses and arouse our curiosity. What lies still hidden and what has the movement of the rolling waves mixed together deep down in the hold of the ship? Rose, elemi and the vanilla-like oil from balsam of Peru. Here and there notes of Gurjun balsam and patchouly can be discerned. It is that blend that we so often refer to as ambery, not sweet yet friendly, laid on soft and musky, oriental resins and balsams.

    Fresh, aromatic, stimulating, soft, lovely and very spicy. Send your nose on an exciting journey, there is much to discover here.

    EAU DE FROEHLICHE 3 (The Raven)
    Cassis, frankincense and cashmeran, joins roses and geranium, rosemary and winter savory, cedar oil and sandalwood. "Eau de Fröhliche No. 3" by Erik Kormann, is a unique composition where for the first time ever, the chemical Cassyrane from Givaudan takes center stage in a perfume composition.
    This third creation in the Eau de Fröhliche series surprises with a top note of black currant, whose natural fruitiness radiates into the floral heart of the fragrance. Cassyran, invented by Dr. Philip Kraft, remains fruity and with its high dosage fits harmoniously into the perfume composition.
    The transition from the head to the heart of the fragrance is accompanied by green leaves before a delicate floral heart of rose and geranium – led by blackcurrants – reveals another facet of the eau de toilette. The heart of the fragrance offers a lively and persistent blend of watery floral and fruity nuances. Here, flowers adorned with rosemary melt with the mouthwatering notes of lychees and watermelon. In the ambery base composed of frankincense and cashmeran, cedarwood and sandalwood, the cassis can clearly be perceived hours later.
    The fragrance was created by Erik Kormann in cooperation with Alain Alchenberger (research perfumer at Givaudan) and Dr. Philip Kraft (Givaudan). With "Eau de Fröhliche No. 3" the brainchild of Erik Kormann finds a romantic end. The design was created by artist Jo Zarth.

    I am very pleased about your interest. Your curiosity. I'll send as many samples as are needed.
    Thank you Shane Costello and George Wuchsa for English texts to my fragrances!
    Have fun.
    Greetings from Berlin,
    Erik

    Awesome, you two are included! I think, since Erik is planning on sending 16 total samples of each scent, we can have 16 total and we can pass in two groups.

    Hey all, I've got enough samples now to ship them out. Here's the thing, Erik has actually sent individual samples for each person, up to 16 people. We have less than that so everyone can have their own spray sample of each of the four fragrances. As it stands there are 11 people in the pass and if I ship to every person individually it'll get a little pricey for me personally.

    So here are the two options I propose. Either A: each of you sends me a very small shipping fee via paypal and I just ship individual packets to each person or B: I can send the whole bunch to the first person and then each one can immediately take their bit out and send the rest on to the next person. What do you all think would be best.

    I think each person could send you fees to cover First Class Mail, sufficient wrapping if necessary and a bubble-mailer. They certainly shouldn't weigh enough to warrant Priority Mail, (over 13oz is too heavy for First Class Package), unless someone "wants" to get it a day or two earlier. It would be safer than having a bundle of samples change through so many hands.

    I was thinking just a shipping fee. I have bubble wrap and mailers already. Seems like in the US, it typically costs me about $3 to send the size packet I'd be sending and more like $6 to Canada (I think anyway, to Australia was $9 so I'm guessing it'd be a little less).

    Sounds more than reasonable to me ! If everyone ends up agreeing to something, I'd guess you could PM your PayPal email addy to each of us and we can send payment. I wouldn't post it openly, but I'm one of the paranoid people.
