Looking for cypress scents

...Diptyque Tam Dao is a wonderful sandalwood and cypress combination. Especially the edp is great. Also Tom Ford Italian Cypress is worth trying.

Oriza L. Legrand

...In my opinion the Oriza L. Legrand perfumes are very authentic and almost pieces of art. They all seem to have a story to tell. Very evocative and it's definitely worth exploring. Their sample service is great and not very costly (I think they charged 16,- for samples and shipment). As for the fragrances my favorite is Horizon. This is one of the few that doesn't seem to have a big story to tell, but it's just a very nice and wearable perfume. It does remind of fragrances as Patchouli by Reminiscence or Von Eussersdorf Patchouli, but this one is really much better imo. Like said the patchouli plays the main part, but it's nicely accompanied by cognac, tobacco, peat and marmelade. For me the suprise is that the drydown seems fougere like. Anyway Horizon was a real treat. I think this a fragrance that could be worn by women and man, but is slightly more for men.The second of favorite was Reve D'Ossian which is very much about the incense, pine tree and aldehydes. It does have a story to tell about a deep woods in which there might be mythical beings lurking around behind the trees. Definitely unisex.My least favorite is Jardins d'Armide which seems a very old-fashioned violet/ rose combo. Very feminine.The Chypre Mousse is very unwearable for me and seems to contain everything you will find on damp the forest floor. Including rotting leaves, mushrooms, fungus and nuts. Recommended for anyone who can actualy wear this scent.The Relique d'Amour brings you into an old church in which you can find incense burning, lilies in vases, polished church benches and even the old damp stone walls are there. It's actually like walking into a church when you close your eyes. Definitly unisex and for anyone who feels liturgical.I need to retest Deja Le Printemps in warmer weather. I find it very masculine. Neverthless it seems very nice.

Tauer scents

Andy Tauer samples and scents
...About a month ago I ordered 5 samples for about € 26,-. The samples I received were all about 60% filled. I wouldn't call that very generous. That said I liked L'Air du desert Marocain and Une Rose Chypree, but not enough to buy them. I thought I would love Incense Rose, Incense Extreme and Reverie au Jardin, but I didn't like them at all. Imo Andy Tauer scents are very overrated. They all seem to have a kind of (similair) spicy edge to them that only seems to work for L'Air du Desert Marocain.
