Trick 17
You're avoiding the back of Amsterdam Avenue
and you'd better turn 109. You have absolutely no desire
Steven or one of the Palladinos.
It's only $800 you owe them,
but right now you're a little clammy.
Well, what does that mean? Normal condition - mostly in minus.
Always think about where you get coal for paints and
Canvas. Your studio is a dump in a corner,
who only call people who have no idea harmless.
Elsewhere maybe a cliché, but with you it's true
Expression "fight for survival" for once.
But you got your little guns. Little helpers, feints,
Tricks. A few secrets. Without them nothing would work.

You're sniffing your wrist. This fragrance
is one of them. Velvet Desert Oud. It makes you feel like you're not a soft but invulnerable shell around you,
woven from strange spices of the Orient and
a frankincense-like breeze, which with conventional
I don't think the sacramental incense has much to do. More like smoke
of consecration for a special church, you think. One
Church for all mankind, a church of
unconditional love, perhaps. Such daydreams exist
i'll give you the perfume for free.
Suddenly you think - you could nal pass Kasimir-
look. Maybe you can get a hundred out of him-
for a week. Has his own gallery now,
after giving a rich Texan a fake
Baselitz on. Risky game. You couldn't
I'll sleep more tonight. But Kasimir has other genes.
Raised in Moscow suburbs.
Again a little cloud of your perfume rises, a Whiff
they say here. Now you also smell the benches from
exotic woods in your church of love.
Again, you take a little detour. The Dealer
Cathedral and Parkway get on your nerves.
That eternal "need somethin', honey?" Your coke phase
is long over anyway. Twenty hours of intoxication through-
and then find out that everything is only complete
It's junk. With you no more.
In the back room of the gallery Faktor Kasimir kneels with his
Assistants on the floor, everywhere bowls with tea,
Coffee grounds, ashes, dissolved earth. You know exactly what
they do there, nothing more unusual.
"Still not finished with the climate diaries?"
you ask.
"One more thing, then it's a round package. Not detectable.
And art-historically absolutely waterproof. I got someone,
he pays me 75K for it..."
Half an hour and two espressos later you're back
on the street, with a hundred dollars more in his pocket.
A tube of ultramarine blue, a madder red, a Prussian
blue. A few yards of screen. Malbutter of Lascaux.
The smell of the colors harmonizes strangely with the deeper
Tone your fragrance. Balsamic, woody sweetness, at the same time
dry or better desert sun-dry. But with all
a lot of oasis feeling.
Oud is actually just a word.
Velvet Desert hat you might as well imagine.
Or equal to Velvet Desert Trost.
Suddenly you have an idea. A bridge form and white-grey
overpainted green. You discover a piece of wallpaper that is next to
the garbage can is in front of the entrance to your studio.
That you will be in three parts on the lower third of the flax
stick the wall together with the receipt.
When you bend down, the scent rises again into your nose.
"Everything's gonna be okay," he says.
It's good to have something like that in the desert they call Manhattan

Very helpful Review    7  
In the middle of the souks
It's warm. Very warm, in fact. Lunchtime at Dubai Creek.
After a short walk along the water - accompanied by screeching seagulls - we land at the Deira Old Souk Abra Station. From here the Abras - small wooden boats - go to the other side of the Creek.
Busily wandering people bring large parcels from the anchoring boats on old sack trucks to the souks: gold, spices, incense. After only a few steps we are in the middle of the Spice Souk. Already from a distance one could perceive all the smells, which are now very clearly recognizable: In the foreground incense. But not as stinging as you know it when you stand directly in front of a smoke lamp. Rather pleasant and round. From one of the innumerable corridors of the wood-clay construction a sweet smell emerges, telling the story of the traditional Arab pastry. In addition a colorful mix of the many spices offered on the souk. Not superficial and also not clearly differentiable, but nevertheless somehow present.
Lost in thought we stroll on, past the spice merchants, until we stand at the Dubai Creek again sometime and wait for our Abra, which brings us from the historic Dubai back into the modern world. The smell of the souk is still perceptible for a long time, until the Deira Abra Station disappears sometime on the horizon and the smell slowly fades away.

Welcome to Talk Talk Talk. My name is Dorian Wurstbusch and I welcome you here in the studio and at home on the TV screens to a special edition of our little talk show. Some time ago we had him already once as a guest and on the occasion of his 100th comment we invited him again. Welcome together with me the Master of Disaster of the perfume magazine is Schoork!

"Hello, I'm happy to be here!"

We will experience your 100th comment together today. What does this number do to you?

"Nothing with myself, though it sounds nice. But first I would like to thank you for the mostly positive feedback. Without the dear people who read me and who feel entertained by me this number would not have come off!"

If you look back, which comment did you think was the best?

"That's hard to say. Even though I laughed the most at Cartier's Déclaration, even though it was polarized, Armani's Eau de Cèdre was funny, but the best? Hard to say."

By the way! We have prepared some clips from people who appear in your comments and here is also the first are Mirko and Nancy.....

"Hello Schoork, we congratulate you on your 100th birthday and wish you all the best, don't you Mirko?

How do you actually come up with these ideas and how long does it take to write them?

"This question is frequently asked, I don't know. I take inspiration from everything around me. Media, music, film, internet, TV and sometimes I just think of something myself. Sometimes I sit hours before it, let it work on me, rewrite, change something here and there, but there were also comments that were ready in 10min."

Today's scent you are commenting on, what kind of scent is it?

" Velvet Desert Oud by Dolce & Gabbana. A sensational perfume. By far the best fragrance from this brand. A beautiful warm oriental scent for him and her. He totally inspired me!"

Before we go into detail here we have another single player with someone who would like to congratulate. This is from the Ruhrpott Saga Alfred Spangler.

"Tach! Yes Hömma Schoork, you old Klingon cruiser, that's a house number, huh? 100 commis, yo!Boah boy, how you doing? Incandescent mantle ne, I remember, I must also ma again at the perfumery at and ma watt et starzen there neuet gives, for my Penunsen. Hmma, keep your ears up. See you around. Not blind, huh?
Back to the fragrance. Tell me.

"So a really nice fragrance. It begins with an incense that is so fine, I can hardly describe it. Very soft, incredibly cosy, almost loving I would like to say and above all warm. Amber supports the whole thing so that it becomes balsamic and light, but only slightly sweet!"

Sounds really fine this fragrance, what kind of story would you tell about it?

"I would rather write a complaint, because this fragrance is very exclusive, of course also in price and that is the only negative thing about this perfume. It's hard to get and I thank the dear Parfuma Cafenoir from the bottom of my heart for the sample and the opportunity to test this fragrance again. I had discovered him once in the Kadewe and was thrilled!"

Before we go any further, we've got one more player here. Here's little Wilma.

"Hello Uncle Schoork ❤️, you always smelled so good, I liked it so much. Mama also has a new perfume and has hardly got it out of the air cushion polie when unpacking. Daddy has gelacht❤️ I'm looking forward to you coming to bear us again. Love you"❤️

What's going on with the scent?

"There follows the oud, which was worked in here in such a way, that it supports it in the background, you can feel that it gets a little woodier, but it supports the balsamic again and a little bit of musk makes the whole thing appear a little powdery at the end. Really wonderful. It has a great durability and invites to cuddle. So I felt really safe with this scent!"

That really sounds like a great scent, even as a listener I can imagine it beautiful.

"I'm glad, it's often the case that people say that perfume doesn't make it to my Commission, so I'm glad when you say that. I would buy that immediately, but the price must be right!"

Before we go on we have a single player from the Sankt Colonia's Jupp knee shot..Hello!

"Would you now have Helau jesaat? Isch kumm dirm dirmang dorüvver mi Fründ! All gode för dich leeven jung un maach esu wigger un bliebv wie de bes. May the maach mr mr you them. Isch drink a Kölsch op dich hück!"

Will there be any sequels with the protagonists who congratulate you here?

"I can't say for sure. Maybe we should ask the readers if they are interested and, if so, with whom. I can grant a wish once in a while. I have met so many dear people here, who have supported me so warmly recently, I am happy to give something back! That's the least I can do!"

One we still have, here are Lena Lavender and Simone Sandalwood from the woman in the mirror.

"Lena Lavender: Well, I personally like his style. Yummy!
Simone Sandelholz: Hmmm so the scent of that somehow turns us on. We've prepared something there too...

OH...ÄHM...we have an image problem, we apologize for that.

So dear readers, you've heard it. Simply write to us here with whom you would like to read a comment again in the future. The majority wins and the first two places are processed. Dear Schoork I thank you very much, say again congratulations to the 100th and all the best.

"Thank you very much and I look forward to coming back sometime. The scent is worthy of a 100 and I make a recommendation to test this absolutely. I am looking forward to the feedback and wish you all a nice day!"

Parfumo's Captain's Log /> Stardate 11112018
Captain Schoork

Where is everybody? I wanted to congratulate you...Hottie...we have no reception, get out of the Wlan!
