Wild west
Many perfume "colleagues" use to criticize Touer's work, idk why, Tauer is really likable and transparent person, probably because of bad sprayers (they are really bad, but that doesn't matter when using perfume)(if he decide to change the bottles and caps i think that the whole concept would lost the sense) or because of high prices? Well, specifically 03 lonestar memories through the official website costs 90 €, I wouldn't say that it's expensive, it's even cheap for the quality of the liquid that we get, and that's primary, isn't it?
a tipycal example of Indie house, Mr.Andy founded a brend for which he makes perfumes, he pours glass by himself, forges tin, fill the bottles, then all that put in a cart and then in go to the post office to ship a products.....
One of the few perfumers, I know just 2of them (the other one is totaly anonymous (for now)) Tauer is always available for his clients, the man I have messaged him several times via Instagram, each time he responded me very quick... even though if you just wish him a good day via Instagram, they will kindly reply and wish you a good day too.

A similar thing happened to me as with L'air du desert Marocain, strange positiv shock during the first sniff, 03 arrived to me in a plastic sample, i was looked at the notes, I could guess everything...but smell lik this? Definitly not!
and at first smell, nothing was clear to me ... very intresting and nice but, what about notes ... what about smells ...? Just an aggressive blow of some sweetenes and wilderness, which That vibe I believe can make many people feeling dizzy.
For sure this is one of the bravest aka more extreme fragrance I ever wore.
I noticed that I find myself close mostly in leather fragrances, 03 is certainly one of my favorite leather fragrances, endless hedonism....

The real scent of the "real man" ..
The beautifully evoked the smells of the wild west, cowboys, horses, leather saddles, belts, jeans, boots and the smoke of barbecue.
The balsamic leather scent, Its recognizable Tauers work, shares similarities with his brother 02, and a little with Amouage Interlude men, that leather resin part is similar to them.
Simply definition: benzoin, leather, olibanum, labdanum, myrrh and tonka ...but although that doesn't really mean much...

herbal animal opening can rejects many of audience, for me that part is the most beautiful, it got its final form after a few hours, when that chsotic sweet animal acords goes into a semi-old School labdanum soapy style on the Tauers recognizable base, in that phase it is not impossible to get a some compliments.... however, this is a perfume which i wear exclusively for my personal pleasure.
Longevity and sillage perfect...anytime anywhere....

I would like to give this perfumer the golden medal of "modern perfumery art" without a doubt!

After all, this fragrance is definitely not for everyone, but although it will certainly be interesting to all lovers of menly leather fragrances, a highly recommendation for all those who respect a Tauer artistic work!

The soul of Creed
I always have a "problem" ,
which fragrance should i choose in the moments when I cant "breath" of a high heat...
Now i know, for the high heat just perfect is good ehougnt...
It must be refreshing (not bitter), it must not smell a like sometnhing cheap and synthetic...
without a big sillage, but with good longevity.
When I say summer, I think of Creed, a house that offers a lot of great fragrances for the Spring and summer.

Erolfa definitely belongs to the group of the scents that lifts the mood and relax the mind.
But how can one aquatic be so special ..?
This is how can be... in the big space of ​​synthetic aquatic bitter cheap oranges and sea notes fragrances....
Erolfa is different in the most beautiful way...
Refreshing, Luxurious, tasteful and natural ... citrus (melon, apple, lime), ambergris, flowers, green, salty, on a musky wood base and a little delicious "metallic" freshness...

This is maybe the most beautiful scent of Creed, which is unfortunately in the shade of the much more popular fregrances of this house, such as Virgin Island Water or Millesime Imperial...
Erolfa is completely unfairly underrated.

This fragrance was made with love... The name Erolfa is derived from the first two letters in the names of Olivier Creed's family: (Er) win, (Ol) ivia, (Fa) bienne
So... it is not a coincidence that right in this fragrance is the most potent the smell of the Creed "soul" "of Creed base", Erolfa is the heart of this house, "which smells like Creed DNA".

All the charms of this perfect blend are reflected in the masterful simplicity, something like the Spring Flower fragrance of the same house and one of my favorite women's fragrances.

Of course, the performance is not something that any aquatic of this type could boast of, but in this case they are quite "good"
Once i have tested 10 different Creeds in the same time on the paper...i couldn't believe it... but Erolfa was a winner in terms of longevity...

For a full day of enjoying the tropical heat Erolfa is definitely one of my favourites.

Powerhouse of the 80s
He challenged the travelers who came to his country to a duel, killed them and from their skulls build a castle for his father Poseidon. Antaeus received inexhaustible strength from his mother Gaja, with whom he was in constant contact, while he was vulnerable in the air, like other people. Hercules realized that Anthaeus power lay in connection with the earth, so he lifted him off the ground and drowned him in the air.

Powerhouse of the 80s ....
The name suits him perfectly, a magical devilish scent is captured in this dark bottle, which simply exudes naturally evil energy...
I'm sure that just a few people will dare to wear it, or even fewer people who really enjoy this scent ....

It is "pretty Heavy" and is definitely not for everyone...

Just a touch of animal vibe from the very beginning, then the castoreum can be noticed, that part that is the most beautiful to me, when the smell it is very similar to dirty side of YSL Kouros... unfortunately that Kastoreum vibe is very short-lived od my skin.
On my skin, the earty powdery rose is definitely the most dominant note. followed by nutmeg, sage, patchouli and oak moss.
It gives me the impression of a dark, elegant, ultra masculine smelly energy, and its perfect choice for some "special" occasions ...
Absolutely not for the audience with "gentle hearts" and for the audience over 25 ++ ..?

When I describe a perfume, I don't like to use the adjective "beast", but this time I have to....
I don't know how the vintage versions smelled, but this "new" version is so potent, the performance is extraordinary, I think more than this would be really pointless, the only thing I can assume is that the animal accord maybe present in Vintage a little more than the current versoin.
Of course, I would like to test it ....

Another classic example of an ultra masculin quality perfume from the past times(most beautiful 80s)... i dont want replay myself by 1000x about the sad fate of Chanel, Ysl, Dior ... etc ... the Reputation of the "designer fragrance's" is maintained thanks to these some old designers, ("Kouros", "Antaeus", "Zino" "Egoiste".......)
The main question is: how much more reformulation they will be able to withstand?
Soon it will definitely be goodbye to Chanel, Dior, Ysl......

Battle of Trafalgar
The scent evoked the moments of the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
Strong accords of smoke, gunpowder, meat, blood and brandy combine with sea salt and citrus notes in the background. The fragrance is singularly "bold" in its composition, and the final form is a provocative, challenging and completely unique blend.

The scent start with the gentle wood and loud note of citrus(lime)the smell of lime here sometimes is very plesant and "natural" and sometimes is very harsh (something like the liquid dishwashing soap "FAIRY")
depends on many external factors...

The scent of lime fades into the background slowly, and disappear completely after a couple of hours.
while the composition begin richer by the smell and effect of smoke, smoke is the main note here and its everithing about smoke, because that is the heart of this masterpiece.
I have never smelled the fragrance like Tonnerre before, although, you can be sure that all Beaufort fragrance is done to the perfection(to the final lines), extremely dark, authentic and very "brave"....
In this fragrance, im sure that will be trully enjoyed by 1 person in 20, just from this "perfume world", i dont speak of some random people, "who just like the fragrances, and have one od two fragrances"

Beaufort don’t have a “lukewarm” fragrance, or something like “just ok”.

Ok, the smoke that was performed in an extremely excremental way was accompanied by the smells of smoke, smoke, smoke .... gunpowder, metal and brandy.
Between all this smells, there is a note of sea water, it is not very noticeable because there is too much dark smells, but to me its clear what the note of sea sale represents.... this perfume is extremely interesting and its a far from unbearable (of course we should forget about the positive reactions of people around us) just because of the sea notes, which create an invisible balance, and give this fragrance just the touch of "light", "soft" and make them "more airy" and "translucent".
Buuuut dont forget the energy of this fragrance is very strong and striking!

There is nothing to look for those people who is not inclined to use a little "more extreme" and dark fragrances.
in just a few times that I wore it, i get some compliments "you smell like a toasted meat"
Highly recommendation to all lovers of dark, strange and above-average fragrances(at least to try)

Recommendation also for the even more "poisonous" brother "Vi et Armis".
Wich smells very heavy, it smells like poison, but when the smell complitly disapear and everything is over, its strange, but you will want that same poison again....

"display window of Amouage"
I still remember very well that cold winter night when i smelled interlude for the first time,it was definitely one of the hardest and ugliest experiences, that night i had tried ELDO Secretions Magnifiques on one left hand and Interlude on the right hand... and smelled them both in the same time.

I remembered Interlude by wild oregano, by that "wild opening,"
In the meantime I have tried some variations on the theme of "Blue Beast", some clones, each one was "worse", "heavier(in bad way)" and "Cheaper".... to me than the "original" was...

Today, 3 years after the first sniff of Interlude, I can only say that this is one of my favorite oriental perfumes... and certainly a favorite fragrance of the Amouage...

I will simply describe it as a maximally complex, high-quality, dark, characteristic and extremely luxurious Arabian fragrance.
This Negrin child is the best-selling Amouage and certainly the most impressive.
For me as well as for many other people Interlude is a "shopwindow" of Amouage" ...
Yes, everything about this fragrance was terrible to me, right now everything is just beautiful....that wild oregano from the opening is an unarticulated natural "punch", unforunatly that part evaporate pretty quick on my skin, quckly goes into a drydown dominated by oud, resins, leather and amber ... Due to the intensity of the dark trees and the resinous, somehow its created a kind of "sweet vibe", otherwise Interlude has nothing tipically sweet in it.
But the final stage is still a sweet woody scent, the smoke effect additionally beautifies the smell, the smoke effect is in from the very beginning and last until the end.
The smell of oud is what fascinates me here, I mean it's SUPERIOR ... it took a long time and I have to smelled a quality oud to be able to reconize the oud in Interlude.
Oud is here made masterfully, one of the best i have ever tried its a really natural and "animalistic"...
All the richness of Interlude come to shine in the spring time, in moderately warm conditions, it is not a perfume for a cold weather!

It is interesting that although the scent is extremely dark full of smoke, leather and animal achords .... the final form is a pure UNISEX perfume ... Also, it is not "beast mode" as some of people says, they obviously didn't smelled a real "beast mode" perfume ...

I would like to know who is the invented the story "Made in Oman is better" totally nosense.
Once i was tested 3 different Interludes, all 3 was "made in oman", all 3 scents were different! (Of course the difference in the smell were minimal)
Now i currently use the UK version, and Its better than any other Interlude that i ever tried....
I smelld the Interlude from many different bottles.
It is much more about the time of maturation of the juice itself than anything else (the same thing is with any other fragrance.)

Thanks for reading.
