Tauer Le Cologne du Maghreb

Yes, it’s the day you’ve been waiting for – Tauer Perfumes’ Advent giveaway!  This year Andy did a scent for the event…

“I made an all natural, all botanical Eau de cologne, baptized LE COLOGNE DU MAGHREB, especially for this occasion. I use only natural essential oils, absolutes, and resins in it. It is a classical cologne, with a woody baseline chord, a firework of natural citrus notes, exploding into expensive sparkles, on a background with ambreine and cedarwood from the Moroccan High Atlas.

Like all colognes it is not made to last but it is a fragrant joy, living in the moment, leaving you with the finest veil of woods on your skin.

The prize is a 50 ml flacon that you cannot get from any retailer. It comes in a white cardboard box with ribbon.

Ingredients: Citrus essential oils and absolutes (such as lemon, bergamot, clementine, mandarine, grapefruit, orange blossom absolute, neroli oil), rose absolute and oil, cedarwood, ambrein, cistrose and much more.

We ship to the address given to us and do not contact the addressee afterwards nor will we use the contact information for any other purpose than sending the prize, nor will we forward the address to anybody else.”

So, March, how’s it smell?  Beautiful.  It smells like a cologne Andy Tauer would make, with a lightly incense-y drydown.  But of course.  As Andy wrote to me, “I guess I can‘t hide. I am the incense man.”

Just enter your name below, I’ll choose a winner via random.org, and Andy’s special Swiss elves (Swiss elves are actually made of chocolate! or cheese, I forget which) will mail it to the winner. UPDATE 12/17. COMMENTS ARE CLOSED.  And the winner is …. Allan! I emailed you.

This is interesting too!
