Over the extended weekend I had 2 interesting revelations. First, as I mentioned here earlier, for my next perfume I was supposedly compelled to choose between Keiko Mecheri Oliban, SoOud Nur and Amouage Memoir Man. Last Friday, day 13, I made a decision, which surprisingly is none of the above mentioned scents. 1740 Marquis de Sade from Histoires de Parfums is my new favorite, which I will hopefully buy later this summer.
Second, I come across a world of emotions and definitely a must on my “to buy”list. The name of the perfume is No. 02 L’Air du Desert Marocain, a perfume which comes “with love, from Zurich, Switzerland” as it is described on the official website. The name of the house: Tauer Perfumes, a small artisanal perfumery, founded in 2005 by Andy Tauer, a man truly passionate about unique essences.
No. 02 L’Air du Desert Marocain was introduced in 2005, as a unisex oriental spicy fragrance, developed by the self-thought perfumer Andy Tauer. A small note from the source quoted earlier mentions that “laying on the bed, watching the moon raising over the sandy hills of the Saharan desert, he dreamt the fragrance of a Morrocan night” and you will be amazes to notice that this atmosphere was re-created perfectly by Mr. Tauer.
As I sniffed initially on paper No. 02 L’Air du Desert Marocain, the unmistakable aroma of incense began to capture my attention. Then, I sprayed on the skin and I had a sheer olfactory pleasure, due to an encounter with this unique aroma. The scent begins with a blend of coriander, petigrain and cumin that arouses your senses for wanting more. Later, as the mid development takes place, you will notice the soft aroma of rose, combined with jasmine. The final part is the dry down, in which the construction is dominated by cedar woods accord, juxtaposed by vetiver and ambergris.
After testing No. 02 L’Air du Desert Marocain I must say, without any shadow of the doubt, that I’m grateful for the fact that it was unveiled to me a special perfume, definitely my new favorite, alongside 1740 Marquis de Sade.
