Today I want to give you guys an overview on a very cool new Tauer project that I hope you’ll follow. There will be six parts to it, hosted on different fragrance blogs, and most or all of them will have samples of the new Tauer fragrance associated with this – Miriam – to give away. So yeah!!!!!! I’m going to pull a little from what Andy has described about this project directly just so I don’t get the details wrong:
“Perfumer Andy Tauer and filmmaker Brian Pera announce the launch of a ten year collaboration between the arts of film and perfume in October with a new line of fragrances, Tableau de Parfums, and the series Woman’s Picture, an ongoing collection of short films which inspire these scents. The Tableau fragrances are packaged with the films and accompanying novelettes inspired by the principal characters of the series.
Miriam, the first fragrance of the Tableau de Parfums line, reaches back in time. It is a fragrance inspired by the first episodic short of Woman’s Picture, featuring Ann Magnuson in the title role, which gives life to a character in the middle of a storm of memories and an uncertain future. The Woman’s Picture series and Tableau de Parfums focus on perfume and memories: To celebrate the launch of the projects, Brian Pera conducted filmed interviews with women involving their childhood memories of the perfumes their mothers and grandmothers wore. These will be broadcast over the months of September and October on this blog and others.
Please consult the list of participating blogs below for related upcoming features involving the launch of the Tableau de Parfums line and the Woman’s Picture Film Series. After an introduction by Andy Tauer on September 1 at Perfume Shrine, the interviews premiere weekly as follows:
