About Andy Tauer : He never studied the art of perfume making in a school. I do not compromise when I deal with perfumes. He is a self taught perfumer and started his venture 5 years ago in Switzerland and sells his fragrances worldwide, following his taste and instinct.
Andy considers perfumery as an artisan craft, and wants to stay connected to what he is creating. For the past 5 years he has his own perfumery blog, where he talk about the craft of perfumery and the daily ups and downs of running an artistic perfumery house.
He also started a web platform PERFUMism. For perfume lovers and creators on perfumery www.perfumism.com
I was introduced to Andy Tauer perfumes by a friend, and was pretty impressed by the composition of the range, and the original packaging. There all three perfumes in particular I would like to share with you.
Eau D’ Epices : a peculiar perfume that makes me think of an Indian market. It’s spicy but has a fresh twist to it. Think cinnamon, cardamom, clove and coriander with mandarins and a heart of orange blossom. Not to forget the Tonka Beans, one of my favorite perfume ingredients.
Incense Rose: is not the regular rose you might expect. The incense is intense, cedar wood , dark notes of myrrh and patchouli in de base, but lightening as I sniff along, into Clementine and Bergamot. The intenseness wares of a little, and that’s when I like became love.
Une Rose Vermeille: is filled with vanilla, sandalwood and yes, again Tonka beans. A perfect spring / summer scent due to the lemon and a whisper of lavender in the head note. Even if you don’t like roses, don’t let the name fool you.
To learn more about the range and Andy, you should visit his website, and blog.
Have a lovely summer…
