Perfumer Andy Tauer is launching a new fragrance called Rêverie Au Jardin (Day-Dreaming In The Garden). It will be his fifth commercialized perfume. He is also the author of a series of four other beautiful, original perfumes named L'Air Du Désert Marocain (The Air of the Moroccan Desert), Le Maroc Pour Elle (Morocco for Her), Lonestar Memories, and Orris (a limited edition that has sold out I believe). You can read an interview we did with the author here.
The new perfume was inspired by the different facets of lavender. The creation process was discussed in part on his own blog, Perfumery...
I love lavender, in all its facets ranging from herbaceous, spicy green notes to sweet, clean flowers and woody, vibrant chords. I wanted to create a fragrance that captures this complexity and transform it into a perfume. A perfume that melts into the skin, and makes me dream of green lands and twinkling stars.
The head notes are very green and fresh- lavender (high altitude mountain lavender from France, galbanum and fir balm with bergamot and rose absolute from Bulgaria softening the herbaceous lavender. They lead over to a musky, fresh heart note (frankincense from India and ambrette seeds) with a woody and flowery orris line. The body note is the most complex part of the scent, being a soft, and airy wood accord (vetiver, tonka beans, oakmoss). Hints of vanilla and ambergris, sandalwood and cedar wood play into a balsamic tone that seems to last for ever."
If you were wondering who the man on the image is and if you suspected it were the perfumer himself, you would be right to have presumed so. This image is to be found on the perfume bottle.
The perfume will be available next month. Andy Tauer fragrances are distributed in the following places.
