Not just for cowboys....
Lonestar Memories by Andy Tauer

When I first smelled Lonestar Memories some years back, I thought too masculine, too smoky, what is this? Even the description scared me:

"The scent of a lonesome rider, wearing old jeans and leather jacket, after a long day on the horse in the dry woods, preparing his coffee on the open, smoky fire."

It seemed far too manly for the ladies and I always considered it the most challenging Tauer, and one I would just have to envy others for appreciating.

(Insert screeching brakes sound effect and fast forward to fall of 2017)

....What??

Was I mad? It's gorgeous! And now that my nose has become acclimated to unisex fragrances over the years and Andy's style and "Tauerade", I realize how I almost missed out on such a gorgeous fragrance. Smoky leather, resins, labdanum, sandalwood and florals. The dry down is beautiful and comforting and so "real".

And no, it isn't just for cowboys. It's for cowgirls, too. And even people who have never even been on a horse. It's simply a beautiful fragrance. Saddle, campfire, and Marlboro Man not required.

For the manly man
To me this seems like a very masculine scent, even though it seems to be categorized as unisex. Very smoky at first with an underlying whiff of celery (that must be the sage and carrot seed), and underneath a faint sweetness. Super interesting and complex. I wouldn't wear it for myself, but I'd definitely put it on my man.

Yes "smoky carnation"
I'm so loose for birch. This wood has great impact on me and I'm so greedy for its leathery tarry darkness. 03 Lonestar Memories is a tatterdemalion smell verging to famous American apothecary natural perfumes, which is a keen and professional detailed translation.

03 LM opens pungent and tousled leathery, like someone survived from a bloody thunder storm and rain. It is integrated, solid, pharmaceutical, with massive volume of leather and resins. But not dry, it's wet and smelly that bears slight yummy taste inside. 03 LM is a strange fragrance, undeniably repulsive in the first try but so charming and desirable as you go with.

It has marvelous longevity; about 12 hours on my skin; so as great projection.

cowboy fetish
Tar, carrot seed, clary sage and wood with flowers place Lonestar Memories somewhere beyond leather. Knize Ten and Etat Libre’s Rien are mild in comparison. LM has a much more burnt quality than these two. ‘Tar’ and ‘burnt’ do to an extent add up to notes of snubbed cigarette and charcoal but the scent ultimately LM brings to mind is burnt wood. Not the smoke of burning wood, but old campfire. LM is nowhere near a daily fragrance for me. I honestly can’t even say that all moments of LM are pleasant. But it’s worth the experience of the top notes to get to the basenotes which lose the feel of charred things and petrochemicals. The base centers on a handsome severity that only a unsmiling, unsweetened floral can give

LM is similar to Tauer’s earlier l’Air de Désert Marocain, but far less comfortable. The amber and incense of l’Air are replaced with rubber and tar in LM. By the heart, LM smells equally earthy and woody tied together by the almost sweet rubber note. The drydown is the best part, though. The floral note (jasmine? carnation?), which really only appears well into the heart, lasts until the finish where LM seems like a dry, smoky, floral tea.

I don’t wear LM very often, but it makes me think when I do.
