Something New and Something New!


What do you think????? Isn’t it adorable?  If you don’t think it is adorable, just lie to me. I positioned the Let Us Spray over on the right  the artist moved it for me and gave a smaller image that will load faster.  Better?  Okay, so now I just need to get my taxes done, then I can concentrate on calling around and getting quotes for mugs and sticky notes and notepads. BTW, the artist who did the artwork is Shano Studio, and she has some great artwork fitting many occasions.  I love her work and love what she did with this image.

UPDATE:  Andy is offering a limited number of samples on his website, go, get one!!!

Just got the a sample of Andy Tauer’s’s newest scent, due to be released April 21 in the usual places, Reverie au Jardin. Notes of galbanum, fir, lavender, bulgarian rose, frankincense, abelmoschus seeds, vetiver and tonka beans.  It starts very green, the fir kind of blasts out with some lavender trilling through it, which scared me… a lot… and then it just hangs there like your breath on a crisp winter morning, and I got more scared, but I shouldn’t have.  Then it starts to thaw  and warm.  I’m always nervous about lavender in a perfume, we don’t get along that well, it just makes me a little oogie, but this one is gorgeous, in the way that Encens et Lavande is gorgeous — there is enough depth with the other notes that the lavender note plays, but it blends into the whole beautifully.  Abelmoschus seeds are ambrette seed, and in the drydown, this has a slightly musky feel, almost licoricey? but not? that’s pretty enchanting.  I kept thinking it reminded me of something, and then I finally sniffed it alongside the old Guerlain Fol Arome, and they’re not the same, but something about each reminds me of the other.  Beautifully done, Andy.

^^^^^^^  That Andy, he always gets the hottest pictures for his bottles. 

faizanjax March 28, 2007 love that note. The two best lavender fragrances for me are Acqua Di Parma Lavanda Tonica and Creed Royal Scottish Lavender (pure blissful lavender).

Love the picture! But I was so busy today, I missed everything, including the samples from Andy. Doesn't really matter--I'm ready to buy this unsniffed (the only one of his that didn't work wonderfully on me was Maroc). But I'm curious--I loved the first mod; how would you compare this to that?

BTW- I forgot who mentioned the scented soap to scent your car but: ^:)^ I had a small lemon verbena soap from a N-M giveaway. It now lives in my ashtray and my car smells fantastic!

That's the joy of a private office and mastering the hasty ALT/TAB. man card intact. Besides, the wussieboys in my office are afraid of me. :d

Dusan March 27, 2007

P, I don't know bout Lee and Tommyboy here, but I don't look too good in gowns. Not meaning to gripe, but how about adding a few touch-ups to the otherwise great logo, say, a few chest hairs for the gents of the Posse? :-)) Oh and, did you like anything ('cept Egoiste) from the pkg? Hugs

Maria B. March 27, 2007

Patty, thank you for telling us about the Tauer samples!!!!!!!! I'm so glad I reread your post. I should always do that. :)

tmp00 March 27, 2007

that was a reply to March and Lee and the belt comment. this nesting thing hate me...

Victoria March 27, 2007

Oh, looks great! I love it!

tmp00 March 27, 2007

Cold showers for both of you![-x :*

tmp00 March 27, 2007

Patty- The design is super-cute! Like Lee, I cannot see the Andy picture without left-clicking on it and saving it to my desktop. Unlike him, this occurs with my work PC, my Mac at home is fine. Wierd.

violetnoir March 27, 2007

Ooh, she is delightful, isn't she? I love the green gown. Now I want a green gown! Hugs!

Marie-Helene March 27, 2007

Yes, it looks better. It's a great idea to have introduced the break after Let Us Spray...., it goes better with the expression on the woman's face and the blog.

Lavanya March 27, 2007

This IS soooooo cute..:)..and I like the writing better on the left like this...(I am wondering if the writing should be a teeny weeny bit smaller?...or maybe not..)

Sharon March 27, 2007

Patty the design looks amazing! I can't wait until you get it set up so we can start buying!!

Dusan March 27, 2007

Lee, have yot tried Fleur du Mâle yet? I'm curious to hear your impressions...

Dusan March 27, 2007

March, I think Andy said that the guy in the picture is none other than Andy himself. 'Course, he may have said it tongue-in-cheek... If the new AT is anything like EeL, I'm going to love it!

Marina March 27, 2007

Love the image! Love it. But, um...can we make her blond? :d:d I'd love a blond one :">

Flor March 27, 2007

Fabulous! I love it. You have my vote on the "Let Us Spray" drawing and everything. ;) The new Andy Tauer sounds heavenly. I haven't actually tried any of his scents,yet. But I plan to, I just have to organize myself as far as bringing them in and all. Anyway, the notes sounds wonderful, I love lavender and I love LOVE Encens et Lavande.

March March 27, 2007

I think Let Us Spray should be blazed across the top of the image in big, honking type. But as you know, I love her facial expression! No way ... that dude is on the image for the fragrance? Seriously? I have to go look at his website. I am going to have to re-evaluate this fragrance entirely (although I'm suspicious I'm not precisely the target market for that image, if you catch my drift.) I'm gonna go ask Lee...

Marie-Helene March 27, 2007

It looks cute. I think that I'd try to see how the "Let Us Spray" does around her head. It's true that she seems to be asking herself a difficult question rather than be expressing a joyful Let Us Spray! (exclamation point?) She seems to be thinking: What shall I spritz on today? or How many shall I spritz on today?

Pam March 27, 2007

The artwork is fabulous, Patty! No lie. Can't wait 'til the notepad and sticky notes are available. And even though I need a coffee mug like another hole in my head, I may even spring for one of those. Shano Studio did a wonderful job. Kudos!! PS: Like Lee, I couldn't see the bottle label. This often happens, so I simply "copy" what looks like the blank spot, then paste it into Microsoft Photo Editor, and voila, then I can see what you or March have posted. Our operating system is old as the hills. About time for an update.

Elle March 27, 2007

Absolutely love it! The style, the colors, the layout - all perfect. And can't wait to try new one from Andy. I share your lavender anxiety, so am glad to hear it got the green light from you. Also have incredible faith in Andy to get everything right.

Silvia March 27, 2007

Gorgeous. Love the colour scheme and everything else. I like the writing where it is, it kind of balances well with the picture. Well done !!!!

Lee March 27, 2007

I get a picture no show on my mac, though I've seen a draft and loved it. Obviously, I'm going to graffiti over my version with bermuda shorts and a baseball cap...

Amy K. March 27, 2007

It's fabulous! Her expression, the colors...awesome. I can't wait for the merchandise! My only minor gripe is that I think "us" would look better capitalized.

Louise March 27, 2007

Thanks for the newness, Patty. Love the gal, love the gown, great composition overall. Agree with Maria that the wording might show better on the left, especially if the gal moves a bit closer to grab and grasp of the goodies. But-she just looks a tad worried (or headachy?) to me-I'd love to see just a little more pleasure in her indecision-perhaps it's all in the arch of the eyebrow? I'll look forward to trying Tauer's newest-all are great on me, 'cept I ruin Orris. Just render it nasty.

Maria B. March 27, 2007

The picture is really cute! Ah, the indecision! I just wish I could wear my hair that way--too fine. This may end up being for you like asking a group of friends for advice on where to put your sofa. "No, over there." "No, there." I think maybe "Let Us Spray" gets lost where it is. What if you brought it over to the left side, where the curve of the woman's back draws attention to the area? Or it could appear above the picture. I'm soooo looking forward to the new Andy Tauer. He makes me want to sing, "Every little thing he does is magic." The notes look fascinating. I'm okay with all of them, and they will all be okay with me. However, I completely understand your first reaction--that holding of one's breath wondering what's going to happen. Taxes. Ugh. We finally got the software tonight (which is already yesterday where you are).

Kelly March 26, 2007

:d Patty - She's darling! And she looks so delightfully undecided! :d Do you think maybe the "Let Us Spray" could be a smidge larger though? I think the size of the design might swallow it on a coffee mug. To my uneducated eye, the placement looks great! So cute!! ;))
