Read More →Review: Au Coeur du Désert from Andy Tauer

We are always excited when a new fragrance comes out from Tauer Perfumes. Andy has never disappointed us yet and it was no different with Au Coeur du Désert. This fragrance is a new Extrait de Parfum ‘interpretation’ of Andy’s 2010 scent, L’ air du Désert Marocain. What does that mean? On a simple level, if you love L’ Air du Désert Marocain then you will love this scent. Au Coeur Du Desert Unisex fragrance by Tauer Perfumes
What is the difference then?
First, this is a 20% fragrance concentration. This woody, oriental draws on similar notes and the feeling is similar, but there is something richer about this fragrance that cannot be simply attributed to the higher fragrance concentration.
Tauer Perfumes say it like this,

If perfumery is art, AU COEUR DU DÉSERT is a statue carved out of sun
beaten timber, softened with a gloss of aged patchouli, and a
patina of ambergris, coming to life with a balsamic glow.

We agree but perhaps if we don’t get quite so poetic we could say this is simply the next level for Andy in this range of his fragrances. We definitely know it is a Tauer perfume: Complex, sophisticated and challenging. Don’t even think that you know what this smells like by spraying it on a blotter, like all Tauer fragrances this must be sprayed on the skin to be experienced. The dry down is not the same as that first spray and that is part of the magic. From the cedar wood, to the amber and leather and then on to the patchouli, ambergris and sandalwood, there is no mistaking this for anything but a Tauer perfume.
Does it take us to the heart of the desert?
We aren’t sure if we love this one more than the original, and think in the end it is l’Air du Désert Morocain that is still our favourite. But if you are a Tauer fan you must add this to your collection.

Although launched in 2013, Tauer Perfumes PHI-une rose de Kandahar is a new addition to our Tauer collection. The reason is because the rose oil used in this fragrance comes from Afghanistan’s rose region, Nangarhar and is in limited production, making this Tauer fragrance a rare gem and not guaranteed to be available all the time. Luckily we recently received a few bottles and the sample orders for this one have been flying out the door!

Like most Tauer fragrances, this one is unlike anything else you have ever smelled before. If you love rose perfumes, you are in for a real treat because it doesn’t get any better than this! A blend of sweet rose and fruit with a lavish side of tobacco. PHI-une rose de Kandahar is soft, velvety and very well-balanced. There is absolutely no trace of powdery ‘old lady’ rose here. On the contrary, this is a modern and very easy to wear fragrance. At first whiff I can smell true rose, hinted with dried apricots, almond (which smells more like marzipan) and fresh bergamot. As it begins to settle, I can smell spicy tobacco, creamy tonka, vanilla, and refreshing notes of grassy vetiver. Throughout all this, the rose notes remains true and strong to the end, continuously complimented by its surrounding notes. In the drydown we are left with a warm suede-like musk. Super sexy with excellent sillage.

In general, the night was stormy and lasted until the morning). Viagra at https://mckesson.uk/viagra/ is really a great drug! I can’t say anything about the side effects. It’s very individual and depends on the general state of health. You can try it a few times and get both pleasure and joy straight out. Personally, I’ll continue to take it.

With temperatures continuing to drop, I think PHI-une rose de Kandahar makes for the perfect season to wear this masterpiece! Wear it any time of day, but I think it will shine bright in the evening hours.

Olfactive Family: Floral

HEAD NOTES: Phi starts with a rich fruity line of apricot. An all natural apricot extract with its surprising richness enchants and blends into a cinnamon line and hints of bitter almond, softened by bergamot essential oil.

HEART NOTES: These spices lead over to voluptuous roses in the fragrance heart: Extremely rare rose essential oil with its unique scent of spices, plums and flower petals blends into rose absolute from Bulgaria and hints of Bourbon geranium. The rose petals melt on the skin into a dark tobacco fond, built around an amazing absolute of dried tobacco leaves.

BASE NOTES: The animalic, leathery and woody tobacco opens the ground for a generously dosed layer of patchouli in the base of Phi. Here, woody and gourmand notes melt into hints of animalic lines. Vetiver, vanilla and tonka add richness and brilliance. A generous dose of exclusive musk and amber gris round the body of the fragrance and encircle the roses.

Availability: In-store and online.

A new fragrance line has arrived at Etiket and we could not be more excited! Perhaps it’s because this is a brand made in our own city of Montreal! Monsillage takes a personal approach to perfume, associating past memories of travel, characters and real-life stories experienced by perfumer and creator Isabelle Michaude. When I first sampled the line, I was immediately drawn to Vol 870 YUL- CDG, for many reasons. One, I love anything to do with travel, planes, airports etc,.  Also, I have traveled this route a few times and have fond memories of my time spent in The City Of Light – sights, smells, food… Reminiscing about past travel can easily transport me back to some of the most inspiring moments of my life and scent memories are certainly no exception! Even just a hint of a scent can strike a chord with a memory or place.

Now, on to the juice – a one way ticket to Paris!

What’s interesting about Monsillage fragrances is that they all smell very different from sniffer stick to the skin. I would urge you to try samples, take them home and wear them to get the most accurate scent. When I first smelled Vol 870 YUL-CDG on paper, I wasn’t moved… on my skin however, I am head over heels in love… take off! Soft, feminine and so unique with opening notes of ylang-ylang and balsam fir that’s slightly sweet, with hints of woods, fruit and musk. As this fragrance comes to “a landing”,  it becomes a lovely warm, musky skin scent with very good longevity and sillage. Perfectly balanced and very easy to wear any time of year.
