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!

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!!

Profumum Acqua Viva vs Annick Goutal Eau D’Hadrien

Profumum Acqua Viva vs Annick Goutal Eau D’Hadrien

Profumum Acqua Viva and Annick Goutal Eau DHadrien are very close fragrances so it was important for me to shoot this video to let everyone know the differences. The scents are quite close but there are little bits of differences but not enough to get one over the other.

Performance on the Profumum Acqua Viva was slightly better than the Annick Goutal Eau DHadrien EDP but not by a lot. The Profumum Acqua Viva also sprays on a lot oilier which tells me it’s much more concentrated when compared to the Annick Goutal Eau D’Hadrien but both are EDP concentrations. I think this is the deal with the Profumum perfumes they tend to be a lot more concentrated. In the end it all boils down to how much you want to spend on a fragrance.

Olfactive Studio Chambre Noire Review

Olfactive Studio Chambre Noire Review

My complete blind first impression video for Olfactive Studio Chambre Noire was shot late last year. I have not had the time to edit so finally getting around to putting this video up because fall and winter are just around the corner and this fragrance would be perfect for fall. It’s a dark, mysterious leather dominant fragrance with violet notes. It’s perfect and will satisfy any lover of leather fragrances. I’m very intrigued with Olfactive Studio fragrances now and will check out more. Especially Ombre Indigo which I have had the pleasure of sniffing recently. Ombre Indigo is a vetiver dominant fragrance with a beautiful blue color. It’s the most beautiful fragrance color I have seen recently. A definite winner in scent and looks.

Going back to Chambre Noire I highly recommend it for a leather dominant fragrances and will satisfy me for fall and winter. Check it out if you can. And please subscribe, like, comment and share this video.

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!
