A Magical Orange
I especially wanted to try this particular Tauer fragrance, as I am not really too fond of citrus scents,in general. I wanted to give this an all day wearing, and see how it develops. I was quite surprised at the very beginning, as I could distinctly pick out the mandarin straight away. It lists clementine as well, and this appeared a bit later. The first 30 to 40 minutes was all about the oranges, and very nice sun drenched type oranges. Almost like walking through an orange grove with the hot sun on your back. I picked up an occasional wisp of smoke, it seemed to just drift in and out, which makes this scent more interesting. An hour or so, into the wearing, A very woodsy note appeared. It really complimented the oranges. I seem to think the smokey accord could be due to the violet note, but can't be sure). This fragrance has wonderful lasting power, just like all of the Tauer perfumes). The dry down was nice, but not spectacular. I could detect ambergris, but the patchouli and vanilla were somewhat weak. I feel this is quite a fresh fragrance, and like others have stated, good for summer wearing. This didn't appear soapy to me at all, nor did it have a cleaning agent smell, it presented the oranges In a very professional way. This is definitely a good unisex fragrance, as it isn't Sweet, or too masculine. It has a softness about it, which I find very interesting for a citrus fragrance. I will be happy to wear this sometimes, for a change, and Not afraid to say, it is quite a Magical Orange!
