Tauerville Vanilla Flash First Impressions

Tauerville Vanilla Flash First Impressions

Tauerville Vanilla Flash Review, my first impressions of this wonderful boozy vanilla fragrance with Andy Tauer himself. I think Andy Tauer has given us another winner of a fragrance here and what a deal it is too, $63 dollars for a EDP concentration in a 30ml bottle. Wonderful stuff for sure, I really do love Vanilla Flash and continue to wear it over and over again. Please check out Vanilla Flash and Rose Flash by Tauerville Perfumes or Tauer Perfumes from Andy Tauer!

Imaginary Authors A City On Fire Review

Imaginary Authors A City On Fire Review

Imaginary Authors A City On Fire Review With Josh Myer. This is a quick review of A City On Fire by Imaginary Authors at the Imaginary Authors workshop in Portland, Oregon. This was also such a treat to sit with Josh Myer himself at his own workshop to sniff some of the notes in the perfumes he’s created including A City On Fire. Josh and I discuss A City On Fire and the notes that went into making this excellent smoky fragrance.

Josh also mentioned that he has some new perfumes in the works and one of them is a rose dominant one which I can’t wait for. I now am the proud owner of 4 perfumes from Imaginary Authors and the lastest of which is The Cobra And The Canary with A City On Fire, Mosaic and Bull’s Blood! Thank you for watching my Imaginary Authors A City On Fire Review with Josh Myer!

Tauerville Rose Flash Review

Tauerville Rose Flash Review

Here’s a first impressions video shot at Tigerlily Perfumery in San Francisco, California. I was anticipating this release from Andy Tauer, Tauer Perfumes or shall we say this line of fragrances is called TauerVille. Originally Rose Flash was a roll on so I dismissed it but happy that it was released as an actual perfume now!

Glad I got my nose on Tauerville Rose Flash and I am the proud owner of it now. After my first impressions of Rose Flash at Tigerlily Perfumer here in San Francisco I just had to get a bottle of this beautiful rose fragrance from Andy Tauer! I’m sure anyone into rose perfumes is going to fall in love with Rose Flash as well.

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street Review

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street Review

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street is a beautiful leather fragrance which reminds me of some of the powerfhouses from the 80s but in a more updated, refined, modern interpretation version of it.

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street is big and bold but not loud and obnoxious. It’s a unisex leather fragrance that will wow us men and satisfy the ladies as well.

Just in time for fall and winter fragrance wear time I think Charenton Macerations Christopher Street will be perfect for the cooler months. Christopher Street is perfectly named after the famous street in New York City. Please check out Christopher Street and you’ll enjoy this excellent indie release by Charenton Macerations.

Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain

Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain Review

I found a masterpiece again and that fragrance is Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain or simply known as LDDM. What a beautiful Oriental spicy fragrance this is. All the great fragrance notes that typically go into the Oriental fragrances like cumin, amber, coriander plus notes like cedar, vetiver, petitgrain, jasmin and rock rose to make for a beautiful, velvety, creamy fragrance.

Man_Loves_Cologne_Andy-Tauer_Lair_Du_Desert_Marocain_Review

On first sniff Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain was great but it was at the end of a night at a perfume event and my nose was experiencing fatigue. Second time I tried Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain and I got really excited and fell in love with it. This was my first official sniff and finally I purchased Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain on my third sniff. I love this one now and it will be in full rotation for me this coming fall and winter seasons. The nose behind Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain is Andy Tauer.

If you’re into the Oriental style perfumes then get your nose on this masterpiece. It’s excellent!!

Tauer Perfumes Cologne Du Maghreb Fragrance Review

Tauer Perfumes Cologne Du Maghreb Fragrance Review

A fresh fragrance from Tauer Perfumes? Yes! Cologne du Maghreb by Tauer Perfumes was a nice surprise for me and surely a bottle worthy fragrance. I think Cologne du Maghreb is a perfect fragrance for those warm days as it’s a citrus aromatic and a Eau de Cologne. From my first impressions though I can tell this Eau de Cologne is going to be an excellent performing fragrance.

I get the DNA of my L’Air du Desert Marocain but this is a fresh, spicy lemoney citrus fragrance. The bottle for Cologne du Maghreb is also different than the other fragrances by Andy Tauer, Tauer Perfumes.

If you do not know Cologne du Maghreb then do check it out. This cologne is going to be perfect for those of you in very hot and humid climates. Definitely recommended!

Imaginary Authors Mosaic Fragrance Review

Imaginary Authors Mosaic Fragrance Review

Finally going out with a bang with Imaginary Authors Mosaic as my last first impressions review of Imaginary Authors fragrances! I’m glad I saved Mosaic to the last since I love it so much. It’s a nice fresh scent perfect for summer which has started my little obsession with the petigrain note in fragrances.

Mosaic is a woody chypre fragrance with a dominant petitgrain note along with bergamot, cedar, limestone and artesian well. So it’s got a very nice, pleasing cooling effect, very relaxing like a spa experience. Those of you that love the spa effect or a spa treatment then you should get your hands on this. It’s so good I got a full bottle of Mosaic, my second bottle from Imaginary Authors. Imaginary Authors Mosaic is highly recommended!! 🙂

Imaginary Authors Violet Disguise Fragrance Review

Imaginary Authors Violet Disguise Fragrance Review

Another great release from Imaginary Authors. This time the author is Lenora Blumberg and the fragrance book is called Violet Disguise. I decided to leave Violet Disguise til the end because the notes mostly dominant note of violet (which I thought since violet is in the name) is not one of my favorite notes. But in reality when I sniffed it on camera for the first time I enjoyed Violet Disguise. It’s actually more dominant in plum note rather than the violet note. It’s a fun fruity fragrance almost candy like. Like those plum candy’s that you pick up at Japanese Sushi restaurant when you are on your way out.

This is actually a quite lovely fragrance and as always I should not judge a book by it’s cover as I could totally be wrong with what I’m judging. Those of you who have thought the same with Imaginary Authors Violet Disguise don’t just this one as it’s quite pleasant. I can wear this when I want something real fun. I do have one very small negative thing to say it could come off a bit girlie as in young girl but I’m fine with it that’s why it’s fun. Do give Imaginary Authors Violet Disguise a chance and I think you will enjoy this one.
