Tauerama!: Tauer perfumes discovery set giveaway

tauer discovery set The generous and talented Swiss perfumer Andy Tauer was kind enough to send me samples of all his fragrances to review over the coming week or so—and an adorable sample set to give away to YOU! Yay!  I am very excited to announce this new giveaway drawing! Tauer got his PhD in chemistry, and went on to start a small perfumery, which has gone on to win many awards and even more praise. For more about Andy, and to get  a real sense of what a cool dude he is, I highly recommend this fragrantica article. Details about my giveaway below:

  • What is it? A very sweet glide-cover metal tin, embossed
  • with the Tauer logo, with 5 1.5. ml samples of TauerIMG_4986 fragrances inside.
  • when will the winner be announced? There’s no fixed end date; when I have written something about all ten of the fragrances, the winning name will be drawn.
  • how do I enter? post a comment expressing interest below, then keep checking in at Hortus Conclusus ;-)
  • I will post links to all my comments and reviews below. See, three   four five six seven eight nine out of nine have already been reviewed! (sorry, it’s been a little longer than I intended, but I’m working through these slowly)

  2. Thank you for your beautiful comment & following, appreciated, x.

    As for scent, it is one of the most delightful human gifts to indulge in. Sign me up for this charmingly boxed set please.

    I read your "Rose" scent review, "a work of art is the product of strange activities in the human mind." Is that quote about Cezanne or by him?

  3. Welcome all three!
    Carol. I'm digging up your reive and linking it right now. Sorry it got overlooked :-(
    Clarity, Yay,new internet friend! I'm checking my book.... be back in a few....
    Jessica, I think you'd really like these fragrances. They seem right up your alley!

  4. Ok, link added! And Clarity, I looked and it's Bell himself writing about the process of creating art and the ways in which it is and isn't like the creation of a rose. Where a rose is a result of a multitude of unconscious natural processes (I assume he's ignoring the fact that most roses nowadays are bred to beauty by human botanists) a work of art is at lest partly the result of human thought processes, and must be approached as such. It's well worth reading th book. I love his writing. Jessica, as an art historian, have you ever come across After Cezanne?

  10. I would love to sign up for a chance to win the Andy Tauer sample set. I found this blog when you left a comment on mine! I'll keep checking it out and post a link to it.

    At first I thought it was going to be about gardening!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yeah I know, it does sound like gardening, but I thought it was an appropriate name because a fragrance is a sort of imaginary garden, a walled garden of sorts....


    Yay, thanks for the link and for following. I admire your blog!

    Welcome to the drawing, Doc Elly, Nina, Tamara, Stephanie, and Mama G!

  18. seems like the man has a thing for morocco, no? if i win i can't wait to see how much i think this really smells like the morocco i know.

    i have to admit that i have not come across after cezanne (and had to look it up, even!). but i also see that it is on the internet full text for free, so perhaps it will make a nice distraction from studying arabic. ;)

  19. I don't know what I like more - the package or what is inside. Just like you, I love receiving packages by mail. It is the most precious thing in a day :) :) Unfortunately, more and more I get bills instead of letters hahah.

    I read a lot about Andy (never tried his perfumes) and he gives me inspiration because he is self-thought perfumer - and I hope to be one:)

  20. Love what I have tried of his fragrances, but would like to try more. Please enter me in the draw. Thanks.

  21. Welcome, woodgirl!

    Bellatrix, I know, it's such a dear little package, isn't it? Andy is very rad--I think he's a great perfumer besides-- and, in my correspondence with him, has been very sweet!

    Jessica, so glad to offer you further distraction from your studies! HE does seem to like morroco, as does Serge Lutens, nd many more---wait, I'm just gonna write up what I'm about to say in a post for the day after tomorrow!

  44. L'Air du Desert Morocan and Une Rose Chypre are two Tauer scents I love. Orange Star makes me think of well-kept public bathrooms. Still, I'd be interested in the complete sample set. Please sign me up for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Please sign me up! I attended the 2008 Sniffapalooza in NYC and a set of Tauer samples was given away there. Tried to will them my way, but it didn't turn out (however, I scored a ton of other wonderful items). Maybe this time!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hi Ania, and welcome! I am looking forward to reviewing it as well. Sorry it's taking m so long to get through the portfolio. I find I need to think about these for a while before writing about them.....

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm not good at 'detecting' separate notes in perfumes and describing it. Maybe this is why I love to read reviews of Other People and compare their feelings about the smell with my own. The more I read Your blog the more I like the way You describe scents. I didn't mean to hurry You up or something... :) I'm just very curious about Your perception of my beloved one.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh, don't worry, I don't feel hurried! ;-) I am pleased that you like my reviews! Yours, LBV
