Thoughts At The End Of Our Sixth Calendar Year

2012 was a very important year for Possets. I had been in the same mode (basically) since I founded the company and felt that after half a decade I should try to see if anything needed adjusting. I was doing well, my customers seemed very happy but I was afraid that...

About Cambienne

When I first started Possets, I got the idea of making a special perfume (called Cambienne) which would mimic the seasons of the year. So, I made up a master flask at the beginning of each year and that perfume was the base. I would announce it was for sale and sell...

Be Merry!!!

To everyone: please let me wish you a wonderful and very merry end of the year festivities, no matter how you celebrate. The one thing I wish for us all is hope. It sounds a funny thing to want; not as romantic and ecstatic as love, not as commanding and solemn as...

M (A Restaurant Review In Cincinnati)

From the first second you enter, you know this place is going to be a success. You can feel it on your skin. The man who meets you at the door is happy up beat and polite. This is a neighborhood eatery (!) and it’s what you would expect in Palo Alto. Sleek...

I Do A Restaurant Review-Local 127 in Cincinnati…It’s Local

I don’t go out much. I don’t want the extra empty calories, water weight from too much salt, and high prices. Saying that, I do indulge sometimes and thought that I would share what’s not too high calorie, what’s not worth it, what is worth it,...

True Bathos-The Quest Begins Part 1

Long ago I went to Europe for the first time. I encountered a “bidet” and loved the fact that I could wash myself really clean with a minimum of fuss. It’s for washing your nether-bits and is like toilet next to the toilet but it has water running...

True Bathos-Quest for the Instrument-Part 2

Now that i knew what a ‘hand held bidet’ was, and realized that I could have one then I had to find one and procure it. So, where would I search? The internets, of course! Google is indeed your friend and with a few taps of the keyboard I found that hand...

True Bathos-The Dramatic Complication-Part 3

We have a wonderful plumber in my neighborhood, Aufdemkamp’s Plumbing*. Tim Aufdemkamp runs the company as his father did and his father’s father, and dating back to the Jurassic Period in Germany when men were men and pterodactyls flew free and dined on...

True Bathos-I Draw A Bead On the Problem Part 4

I am standing forlornly in the doorway watching Dan the plumber drive off with my $72 service fee and nothing to show for it. I feel like a 2 volt motor hooked up to a 5,000 volt source. There is a solution, I know there is. One thing that Dan did suggest, go to Van...

True Bathos-Dateline L.A. Part 5

I bought my hand held bidet from a company in Los Angeles California. They are rather sophisticated and hard bitten out there, and I can certainly deal with that. At this point my recourse is limited, either get fetched off immediately to the local madhouse, or call...

True Bathos-The Denouement Part 6

The next day dawned. The light broke in the East and my world was cradled in a mauve glow. I got my coffee and worked a bit on the computer. At 8 the phone rang, it was Tim Aufdemkamp. Tim has this ability to sound like he is unearthly calm about everything and this...

As Changes Occur…

I think that tastes change and possibilities do as well. At Possets Perfume I have been finding some wonderful sources of ingredients and started to use a different philosophy to augment my original light and foody perfumes. I still have a lot of the gourmandy sorts...
