The Mysterious Conformist
Hardly any fragrance is so hyped here, if you look at the ratings. I must honestly admit, here I went to the hype on the glue and got myself 15ml. I was pretty disappointed the first time I wore it. Au Coeur du Desert is beautiful, but in view of these ratings and this high price he is not so beautiful now. That is, it is beautiful, but not extraordinary.,

The lead here is Amber. Not quite as soft as you know it from elsewhere, because there is still something smoky resonating. I'm guessing myrrh. These are the two main components I can identify here. In the course of the scent the smoky becomes stronger and stronger. Only if you smell directly at the sprayed place, it is a little scratchy. The Sillage is quite human for it. So I have the impression I smell a bit like a man who only lets the highest quality aftershaves on his million dollar body. Probably doesn't suit me at all. The woody notes make Au Coeur du Desert look very masculine to me. Cedar wood and musk, maybe? And homeopathically dosed oud? And at the beginning there's a little rose floating by. Everything together very pretty, very harmonious. And with a mini droplet you are well supplied over the whole day. That's what justifies the price the most for me. I also noticed that the fragrance develops much better in colder weather. If it's over 25 degrees, it seems a little flat. This woody, human-looking one comes to the fore quite strongly, while amber and myrrh step into the background. There are people who like that, I don't like to think of men's skin. When it is cold, the fragrance appears warmer and more accentuated.

In itself it is so that many fragrances, which are actually very wearable and pleasing, are very well received. Especially in the high-priced range. Aventus, Reflection Man, and also Au Coeur du Desert. . But also in the mainstream. Sauvage, Bleu de Chanel, Terre d'Hermes... Solid fragrances of good quality but nothing to attract attention because they are so extraordinary. Thus Aventus is the fragrance for the party animal, Reflection wears the serious businessman. And Au Coeur du Desert? The guy who likes to make a little bit mysterious and sexy. But of course not too much, you don't want to frighten anyone. Stay nice and consistent. That sounds more condescending than it's meant to sound. Because in principle, that's what most people want. The breath of a little excitement, a little adventure, but not too much and please polished to a high gloss. That's Au Coeur du Desert

And the story continues...
Truly the next chapter in the story of LADDM. However, missing are the arid spices and vastness of the former, which to me are what made it magical. Many will prefer this for its sweeter, denser character that makes it slightly more wearable, albeit more similar to other ambers. I put this along the same lines as HdP’s Ambre 114, though not quite as smooth and sweet. If the spicy opening put you off of LADDM, then ACDD may be for you.

Nice desert without corners and edges
First of all - it was a blind purchase. I had been inspired by this fragrance at Parfumo and in the verse videos.
I ordered it and unpacked it.... What annoyed me from the very beginning and is still annoying today is that the bottle licks. I've always been hanging in the lid and on the nebulizer perfume it's like permanently damp up there in the cap. With the price I do not find that at all.
Now for the fragrance. He's like described a dry desert. Stand once in the Sahara and let the dry dust and sand blow around your body. This best describes the fragrance. He's very straightforward. There's little surprise coming. With this fragrance you will certainly do little wrong, but it will not polarize in my eyes either. The shelf life is therefore 8 hours plus.
Get a sample before you buy him. I think you'll be easily disappointed otherwise.

Condensed LADDM
This smells like you sprayed LADDM, then captured the spritz in the air and condensed it. I guess the way I look at it is it's simply what you would expect from a parfum version of just about any fragrance. Less citrus, more base, a richer heart, more sillage, and longer-lasting (I know this is not always the case with parfum concentrations, but that's how it's "supposed to be" in our minds. I also know this is not a parfum, but it smells like it is). This version reminds me of a desert night, not a desert under the scorching hot sun. But the sand is still hot. I absolutely adore this version, just as much as the original. I own both and would give neither up!

passionate passion
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"!
And how!

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?

Childhood memory of Tehran
I can't believe how this scent lets images from my childhood rise up. We lived almost 2 years in Tehran when I was a child and this scent lets a lot of pictures from this time rise up again. I smell/see the dusty roads and the smell of kerosene when we drove into the mountains on the weekend. I remember sweet pastries soaked in rose water and honey. The hot sun that lets the air waft and softens the tar. Carpet dealers in the bazaar offer their customers strongly sweetened tea. Fruits dried by the mountain on the market, such as mulberries, apricots and sour barberries. A friend of the family brings my mother honeycombs as a present, which we suck out with pleasure.
My favourite food, a stew of meat strongly seasoned with cinnamon and dried apricots.
The colored dresses and the clinking jewelry of the Berber women. The smell of the goat that was kept some time in the garage.
Fresh Barbari (bread) with sesame. Bundles of herbs and panir (cheese). The slightly smoky smell of the bakery in which soured flat bread was baked in an oven on hot pebbles (woe, I was too greedy and immediately eaten a piece with hot pebbles!)
I could continue to indulge endlessly and therefore like to hold my nose to the specimen again and again. It's too special to wear, though
