The game of association
What do you read about this scent. Desert air, sand dune, spice market in Morocco. I'm honest, I don't have a haze like a desert smell, because I've never been there and because I can't imagine how it should smell.

BUT L'Air du Desert Marocaine really smells like something that I instinctively associate with spices and sand and I have no idea why. And don't get me wrong, it really is the absolute madness! Quasi a masterpiece!
The fragrance is fart dry immediately after spraying on. There is no other way to describe it. If dryness would smell like something, then the top note would be exactly like it. What is already resonating here is clearly the cistus. It is actually present from the beginning to the end and gives this spice or "pungency". What I also notice very badly here is the petitgrain with the caraway, which possibly in combination creates this dryness and additionally gives an earthy and strawy effect. So short - spicy, citric and the opposite of fresh.

In the course of time it changes only marginally in my eyes. The citric remains, the dry disappears and the amber comes through and how. Probably after Grand Soir the best Amber I have ever sniffed. In short - the finish is still citric, but much smoother and less dry.

S/H are day-dependent with me, whereby I also become smell-blind quickly. My environment noticed it partly also still after 9 hours and before Corona there were also times in public a comment on it. In my eyes you can wear the scent every day of the year, no matter if it is summer or winter. In summer it is not too heavy, in winter it is heavy enough.

Another tip from me: Lay with Grand Soir in winter and Cedrat Boise in summer, for this you get the maximum out of the amber in winter and for the summer you produce the dry citrus bomb with atomic durability (+16h at my place)

To sum up: A must-have in the collection for every fragrance lover and an all-rounder for the whole year. And compared to the more expensive Extrait in my opinion a little smoother and better made

My Amber No. 26
Tauer Perfumes No.02 - L'Air du Désert Marocain
Here I sit now on the heights of the Atlas.
Far behind me the Moroccan desert.

The wind blows fragrances around my ears and nose.
He robbed the souks and markets.
Amber first and spices of the dry kind.
And resin from Atlas cedars. Notes in the diary.

Sweet sand, distant oasis green, dusty samum.
Knotty tamarisks, fluttering tents, nightly smoke.
The women's zip-zip-zip to the reception.
And the secrets among the bound sheesh.

From the desert the glowing wood still blows.
The hot sun. The cold night. And the pride of the Targi.

.

This is Morocco. And my endless desert.

First rough then soft
A small splash is enough for a strong caraway chord at the beginning. It is astonishment and horror too equal with me. After a few minutes the strong caraway fades away and softer spheres come together. Jasmine is preserved sweetly over striking vetiver. Unobtrusive, yet beguiling.
I find it very successful due to the good development of the fragrance.
Very diversified

Oh wow!
This stuff is just brilliant, probably the best fragrance I've smelled the last couple of years.
A powerhouse of leather and dry spices - just epic! Great longevity and sillage.
If you want to smell like a "really bad boy", try layering this with Encre Noir.
Great stuff indeed!

"Company Desert Storm"
A beautiful desert scent that starts fruity, bitter and dry. The slightly bitter note is present all the way to the end and can be irritating. The fragrance develops nicely: a hint of vanilla and carnation I thought I perceived fit very well to the then strong smoke development, which then flew around my ears. Sometimes, however, there is also sometimes coked rubber, which is funny and fits well into the desert picture. No. 02 - L'Air du Désert Marocain is for me a great dusty experience with a presumed incense finish. A rating between 8 and 9 already fits.

desert sand...
It's boozy and spicy with a hint of sweetness. For the first hour the sillage is big, and as it slowly becomes smoother, the composition changes to a dusty and sweet character,
I can get the sandy references and the whole Moroccan desert concept, but to me it's so much more. It's a feeling, soothing and intense at the same time, refined but rugged in spirit. It is pretty unique
Masterpiece territory....

A bazaar ... somewhere in the desert.
A rather spontaneous bazaar enriching itself with traders, somewhere in the desert, fruit traders stay away from it, as do the cattle traders, the area is simply too hot for some fruit and some cattle, but the spice traders have recognized their chance for this.

A caraway dealer has seized the opportunity and positioned himself directly at a fork in the road where the frequency of potential customers is highest. The aroma of his goods flows around his stand for metres before the petitgrain trader joins in to offer his essential oil. The now balsamic and dusty dry caraway wort is carried into the distance by the desert wind. Not only customers are attracted by this, but also the now spurting jasmine trader, who already knows from a distance that he has lost a part of his customers to the earlier arrived petitgrain trader. Our jasmine dealer arrives angry and immediately starts to sell his flowery-sweet goods. This time it is a very special one, who knows how to conquer the hearts of people a little dry, but because of the discreet, sweet floweriness. The cumin on the neighbouring stand creates a balsamic, somewhat sweet spice that attracts more and more people to the market. Disappointed by the jasmine's popularity, the enraged petit-granhändler, who no longer sells anything, packs his oils, ejects a few curses on the jasmine dealer and leaves the action. In the process he also loses part of his goods, in keeping with his bad luck today. The small bottles broken on the stony ground contained still some remainders of the oil, which now distribute themselves beside the jasmine stand on the desert ground and drive the jasmine dealer into madness. He is constantly being asked whether, in addition to his famous white bloomers, he is now also selling the essential oil that his worst competitor has just lost.

It's been a few hours since the petit grander left the market. During these hours the sun reached its highest point. The temperature mark of 40 degrees has long been exceeded. The heat let the dryness and desert-loving cistus rose bloomers unfold their resinous-sweet aroma, which is now carried to the bazaar by the dry wind. Despite the scorching heat, the people endure, continue to buy, try and let themselves be enchanted by the aromatic spice and the flowery wind.
The eyes of the newly arrived tobacco seller shine as he sees the man-flooded bazaar and parks his recently acquired cart near the other businessmen. Enthusiastic about the sheer selection of tobacco, the Kümel and various oils immediately surround the artfully carved wagon. Tobacco is bought and in the meantime they talk animatedly. The other dealers ask, among other things, where this beautiful car made of cedar wood came from. Somehow they have to get involved, adapt to the new circumstances, distract the tobacconist a little from selling. So they crowd their own goods for his carts and apply those with even more ambition, even more offensively, even louder, while the brand-new, tobacco-filled carts made of freshly processed cedar wood with its very own, sweet, woody charm win the meschen for themselves Somewhat away from this hustle and bustle, another retailer presents his exclusive goods, but he realizes himself that he arrived far too late today that he would receive no attention at all. Everything revolves around the tobacco seller and his beautiful car, the caraway seller and the jasmine dealer. The outsider with his quite exotic sweet grass is not able to penetrate into this society. He packs up and leaves the place without even being noticed by a single person present. Maybe it's better that way. Who knows what else the heat would have done to his goods over the course of the day. He'll try it out in other places. Maybe where the cattle and fruit merchants are? We'll see.

The gentle desert wind
A typical Middle Eastern scent but light & airy, almost inoffensive, in opposition to the usual very heavy and pungent Arabic influenced creations.
While it is still a very likeable fragrance, it has probably been hyped as an innovative western creation of a deep oriental fragrance when it was launched back in 2005. YSL M7 was launched only three years before.
The very pleasant coriander opening is only second for the very alluring balsamic and amber ambiance created by magnificent notes of Cistus/Labdanum and Ambergris.
The performance is quite high despite being a smooth perfume.
If this perfume would be cheaper it could be a smashing hit in any designer house.
It's a very nice perfume to have, but not really indispensable any longer. Currently I prefer to wear its related Tauer scent "Au Coeur du Désert".

Fragrance and music
I thought for a long time about which fragrance I would write the first comment after the first months of rather passive membership in the community. I think I've found a worthy entry with L'Air du Desert Marocain.

For months I watched, sometimes with slight concern, as the addiction to scents grew. Therefore with concern, because for me as a musician music was the only real addiction. But the occupation with scents has been so intense for half a year that I felt something like infidelity towards "my" music.

But AdDM opened my eyes, because it's the parallels to the music that make the world of scents so fascinating for me. In music I especially love the dark timbres, in which bright spots like islands occasionally light up. Music by Gustav Mahler, Karl Amadeus Hartmann or Aulis Sallinen, but also Depeche Mode or Radiohead are such sound colour wonders for me.

For me, AdDM is the olfactory counterpart to the music I love so much. A fragrance in which one is safe, in which one is caught, which reveals dark depth, but also cheers. If there were concerts in which fragrance would also be "played" at the same time: That would be my heaven

Truly an “immersive sculpture”
This fragrance, quite frankly, blew me away upon first sniff. I’m not going to completely discredit the influence of the brand and storytelling, but this scent is remarkably transportive and evocative of its namesake. Wearing it feels calming, contemplative, almost spiritual—the expansiveness of its arid heart make it impossible not to imagine an oppressive sun and vast sand-scape before you. An artistic masterpiece that’s a must-try for impassioned enthusiasts. Need bottle now.
