Already Andy Tauers N° 2 "L'Air du Désert Marocain" fascinated me and took me on a trip to North Africa.
There I followed in Paul Klee's footsteps and August Macke's. Both painters had embarked on this great journey in the spring of 1914 - see my commentary on this "With Paul Klee in the Desert".
So of course I was particularly excited about "Au Coeur du Désert".
Would I like it? What would it tell me?
Finally I managed to get a bottling from a very dear Parfumo soul mate; thanks at this point!
I don't like to draw comparisons; here they would be completely out of place.
"In the heart of the desert" - this promise is fully fulfilled:
Immediately I feel the scorching heat of sun and sand surrounding me.
Gleißendes Licht conjures wabernde pictures: do I believe in a "Fata Morgana"?
I have to!
Silence! Silence that is not interrupted by anything. Motionless silence and seemingly endless expanse!
In the Middle of Nowhere!
But there: some tents, camels, horses and people! Very strange, proud people!
People who set up their camp for the night. The preparations have been made, a fire is smouldering in a hollow in the sand, a tajine is sitting in it.
What a delicious fragrance comes from this ceramic tableware!
Hospitality in the desert: the invitation is immediately pronounced and joyful, accepted full of interest!
Slightly curious looking Khol-edged women eyes; friendly and at the same time shy!
Men, racy and wild like their horses: sparkling teeth and searching looks!
Mysterious fascination lies over this scene!
The wind, now awakened, brings with it the strong scent of strange wood that has been deformed and dried by the sun. Not recognizable is what it once was in life: now it is only wonderfully spicy aroma.
Temptingly this mixes with the lustre of mature patchouli surrounding these mysterious women.
The tasty meal with its scents is forgotten; it only counts what this eternal desert and its inhabitants offer.
The fire is kindled again, it burns calming and protective; magic lies in the beginning night.
Thousands and thousands of stars of the southern hemisphere draw their images in the dark sapphire sky.
Attractive, seductive looks - passion flickers on, the surroundings begin to blur ...
Hot skin of hot skin; light, reminiscent of the delicacy of fine porcelain; deep dark, balsamic amber scent, on which golden lights come to life.
Quiet whispering; in the silence of the endlessly seeming night a woman's soft laughter blows away ...
"Au Coeur du Désert" breaks his story here.
Also this fragrance is according to Andy Tauers motto "perfume created with love"!
Durability and Sillage are again excellent; well so, because the separation from this fragrance experience is unspeakably difficult for me.
If I opened the well-known Tauer flacon again: would this story be told again or would it hold other mysterious and glowing promises?
I'll have to wait until someone moves in with me.
When that is is still written in the stars; but until then I will guard this bottling and from time to time tread the path of glowing passion with its contents.
Will I find her again?
