  1. Oh how generous and fun! My favorite is Orange Star. Love that stuff! Thanks!

  2. L’Air du Desert Marocain is one of my most beloved fragrances. I think it’s a true masterpiece.

  3. My favorite from the earlier scents is Le Maroc. I wear it summer and winter, it’s comforting, exhilarating and so me.
    I’d like to try many of the newer ones but their names escape me right now and I’m too tired to look them up! Cheers.

  4. I’m just dreaming of the explorer set. I love (and have) Une Rose de Kandahar but so seriously want Rose Chypree and also am dying to try Vetiver Dance, and Noontide Petals and Le Maroc pour Elle. Loving every day of the Advent, even though I never win

  5. I would love to try Incense Extrême… I have tried Un Rose Chyprée and loved it. It’s on my fb list. Thank you!

  6. I have only tried a few scents, and in those Orange Star was the dark horse that I became more attracted to. I would like to try some of the rose scents. Thank you for the draw.

  7. L’Air du Desert Marocain. Incense Extreme would be wonderful to try.

  8. Ah, Andy–what a nice man! My favorite Tauer fragrance is Orris. But I love others, especially Incense Rosé. Then there’s Reverie au Jardin… I could go on.

  9. I love L’air du Desert Marocain, but I would also love to try Incense Rose! Thank you 🙂

  10. I love Lonestar Memories and would be thrilled to try more of his scents! Please enter me in the draw.

  11. My favorite at the moment is Incense Rose – yummy. But Noontide Petals is a close second. I would love to be entered in the drawing.

  12. Right now it is Sotto la Luna, but I also adore Incense Rose, Incense Extreme and Noontide Petals. I would love to try Phi. Thank you for this wonderful draw!

  13. Love lots of Andy’s fragrances and had the privilege of meeting him and hearing him talk about the development of several a few years ago when he was in the UK. Currently yearning for Zeta and Miriam

  14. I like Reverie au Jardin and would love to try so many more, notably Phi: Une Rose de Khandahar, Pentachord Verdant, and his incense scents (?incense extreme and ?Rose Incensée), and Carillion Pour Une Ange. Oh, look, I’d love to try them all really, I’ve read so much about them and they inspire so much love.

  15. There so many great fragrances, so it can be difficult to choose. Carillion Pour un Ange has my heart, though, because I associate it with my late nephew.

  16. My favourite is Carillon pour un ange – very refreshing ant inspiring!

  17. I like a number of his fragrances, though probably my favourite is L’Air du Desert Marocain.

  18. I enjoy many of the Tauer range, but Rose Flash has eluded me. Thank you for the draw.

  19. It’s hard to choose, but I’ll say Une Rose Chypree. Followed closely by Incense Rose and LADDM.

  20. L’Air du Desert Marocain is perfection. But my head was turned by the beautiful and evocative Rose flash.

  21. L’air du Desert Marocain is my favourite fragrance, I also love Incense Rose. A chance to try more of Andy’s scents would be a wonderful Christmas gift!

  22. I have never smelled any Tauer Perfumes yet, but each one sounds better than the last! If I had to pick three, I think I’d try Pentachord White, Incense Rose, and Une Rose Chypree….but then I immediately start to second guess myself. Thanks for hosting the draw. My fingers are crossed!

  23. I’m really keen to try Phi! Always described as The rose for a non-rose lover.

  24. Wearing my favourite today for the office lunch – PHI. Noontide Petals and Une Rose Chypree are close runners up. Tks for the draw!

  25. Sadly I’ve only tried one – Incense Extreme. It’s so distinctive and complex, makes me want to try the whole Tauer line!

  26. LDDM is a favorite, though I’m intensely curious about Rose Chypree! Thanks for the drawing.

  27. Im a perfume newbie, but based on all the comments, would love to try incense rose and phi! Thanks for the draw!

  28. I have tried many Tauers and I like L’Air du Desert Marocain on my husband and Pentachord White on me.

  29. There are quite a few I would ask to try, but I’ll pick Lonestar Memories.

  30. My favorite Tauer so far is Incense Rosé. I also love l’Air du Désert Marocain and Orange Star. I’d really love to explore Une Rose Chyprée!!!

  31. My favorite Tauer is Lonestar Memories. And: Orange Star, and: Incense Rose and,……….. difficult choice!

  32. My favourite would have to be rose de kandahar. To me it just smells like the perfect rose, however I am going to wait till the summer to really start wearing it as I think it will blossom into something amazing and bring out all the notes with the heat.

  33. Zeta! If snow fell in summer it would smell like this, so powdery and sweet, with all the promise of that season.

  34. My favorite is L’air du Desert Marocain while Une Rose de Kandahar is second. thanks for much for the generous draw, Andy.

  35. At the moment my favorite is Vetiver Dance, but mainly because I haven’t had the chance to really try all of them (just most of them briefly).

  36. L’Air du Desert Marocain without fail. Smells like my beloved little sister as she wears this all the time, going out dancing, to the theatre, tidying the house, doing the garden, shopping in the city – it is her in a bottle! She is lucky to have found The One. I am still searching but I’m sure Andy can come up with something delicious which is just ‘me’. Happy holidays!

  37. It is very hard to pick one favourite scent form Andy’s range. They are all awesome. But Lonestar Memories is the one I wear most often.

  38. Very interesting to try Cologne du Maghreb.. I like L`Air du Desert Marocain, also Incense Extreme..

  39. Incense Extreme. Like a rich and exotic bazaar, spices and incense, intoxicating and alluring. It makes me feel like a tiger, somehow.

  40. Can’t pick a favourite between L’air du desert marocain and Miriam. But also all the roses. I do think Rose Chypree, Incense Rose and Rose de Kandahar are all very original takes on the rose and each in its own way so charming. I’m so jealous of all you US people because you can have Rose Flash and we here in Europe can only imagine what Andy’s done with it.

  41. It’s very difficult to choose a favourite from Andy. I love quite a few of them. At the moment Lonestar Memories may be winning out. I’d love to try Rose Flash too.

  42. My favourite Tauer fragrance is Reverie au Jardin, a lovely, dreamy lavender. I’m looking forward very much to try the new Gardenia!

  43. My favourite Tauer is Une Rose Chyprée. I am curious about a lot of others though.

  44. L’Air du Desert Marocain is an old favourite of mine but I haven’t tried some of his latest perfumes, something I hope to remedy soon

  45. I’d love to try Noontide Petals – I’ve never tried an Andy Tauer perfume. Thanks for the draw!

  46. Ooh, tough decision! I think the truly exceptional L’Air du Desert Marocain is my favourite, it is sublime! Thank you for hosting the draw 🙂

  47. I love Une Rose Vermeille and Noontide Petals but my favourite is Zeta. Such an uplifting and happy fragrance! I’d love to try some more Tauers, I am sure there are quite a few gems to be discovered:)

  48. L’Air du Desert Marocain is my first and only- beautiful and different! I’d love to try others…..thank you for the chance!

  49. Favorite Tauer that I own – Maroc Pour Elle
    Tauers that I’d like to own – Rose Vermille, Une Rose Chypree, Noontide Petals

  50. My favourites are Carillon Pour Un Ange, Incense Rose and Noontide Petals, but I also love Eau D’Epices, Une Rose Chypree, Orange Star and Vetiver Dance. There’s nothing like ’em. Tauer fragrances are unique and the longest lasting I have ever used- 14 hours!


  51. I like many in the line but LDDM is probably my favorite. Thank you for hosting the draw!

  52. My favorite is une rose de kandehar and i would love to try lonestar memories! Thanks!

  53. My favorite Tauer is Noontide Petals and I’d love to try the new gardenia! Thanks Posse!

  54. My favorite is Carillon pour un Ange – beautiful and unique lily of the valley perfume. Thank you for the draw!

  55. My favourite Tauer perfume is L’Air du Desert Marocain. I loved it from the first sniff.

  56. L’Air du Desert Marocain is the only one I’ve tried so far. It is amazing!

  57. My favorite is Le maroc pour elle—-or possibly Incense rose. I’d most like to try Rose Flash and Un Rose chypree. But really I wish I could try them all. Thank you for the drawing!

  58. Right now it would be Une Rose Chyprée and Rose Flash – but I also love many others…Reverie au Jardin, L’Air du Desert Marocain

  59. L’air Du Désert Marocain, for a man, and Une Rose Chyprée, for a woman, are my favorite Tauer perfumes and two of my favorite perfumes ever! I also recommend Incense Extrême as one of the most beautiful and uplifting incense fragrances, Rêverie Au Jardin as the best lavender perfume, Incense Rosé because its so baroque and delicious and Pentachord Verdant because its so strangely beautiful 🙂

  60. Thank you for hosting day 19th of Andy’s Advent calendar, Patty! The gift is awesome!
    It is hard for me to say which one of Tauer perfumes is my favorite, since this year I discovered Phi, Orange Star, Cologne du Maghreb and most my-cup-o-tea of all – Une Rose Vermeille, and I love them, all along with L’Air du Desert Marcain! I am eager to try Lonestar Memories and Eau d’Epices.

  61. I’d probably pick Orange Star as my favourite, but I’ve not tried all yet. ty

  62. Oh oh oh! Not just my favorite Tauer, but my number one Holy Grail is PHI Un Rose de Kandahar- it’s True Love!

    Thanks to Andy Tauer and The Posse for the draw 🙂

  63. If only tried a few so far, but of those, Une Rose Chyprée was my favourite – just extraordinary, it really expanded for me what a rose fragrance can do!

  64. I like Reverie au Jardin. I haven’t try the Tableau serie, but I feel like I may love it!

  65. So far, my favourites are probably Incense Rosé and Rêverie au Jardin, while Le Maroc pour Elle impressed me the most. I’m looking forward to trying his gardenia and pentachords.

  66. my fave tauer perfume (which i own) is incense extreme. i’d love to get my hands on a full bottle of LADDM. but the one i’d like to try is vetiver dance (i’m a vetiver freak).

  67. My favorite Tauer fragrance is Une Rose Chypree. Happy holidays everyone!

  68. No favourite, but everyone needs Rose Flash in their Christmas stocking! 🙂 🙂

  69. My favorite is Miriam and I would like to try ingrid (I think that’s the name I remember).

  70. The ones I most want to try are Eau de Epices and Orange Star. Oh, and L’Air du Desert Marocain.

  71. L’Air du Desert Marocain is so gorgeous. I’d love to try Rose Flash.

  72. Like so many others I love l’air du Desert Marocain. I would love to try Rose de Kandahar.

  73. It’s so hard to narrow down an Andy favorite, but Une Rose Chypre and Pentachords Auburn are huge favorites. Thank you, Posse and Andy, for the lovely giveaway!

  74. I’ve been hoping to try Noontide Petals for a long time. I have a soft spot in my heart for floral aldehydes. They smell great on others, but I haven’t yet found one that settles on my skin. Happy holidays to everyone!

  75. My 2 top favorites are L’air du Desert Marocain and Rose Flash. I would be delighted to win. Thanks!

  76. My favourite at the moment is Phi Une Rose de Kandahar, but I love quite a few of the others too.

  77. Too many favorites: L’Air du Desert Marocain, Lonestar Memories, Incense Rosé, and the one that fits in the least with this bunch: the lovely Zeta

  78. thank you for the wonderful draw. i love rose vermeille and rose flash and orange star. would love to try them all !!! wishing peace to all.

  79. Without a doubt, my favorite is L’Air du Desert Marocain. Happy holidays, everybody!

  80. Well, I can’t narrow it down to just one. I own a FB of LDDM, and absolutely love it. But I also adore Une Rose Chyrpree. I think my next bottle will be Verdant, because it is so different from every other fragrance I’ve ever smelled. But a full bottle would last several lifetimes, because just one drop is enough for days of verdant pleasure…

  81. L’Air du Desert Marocain smells amazing on my friend, who now wears perfume because of I. For myself would like to try Orange Star.

  82. My favorite is L’Air so far. I have a bunch of samples coming and am excited to try them all. Thanks for hosting!

  83. I would like to try a lot of them, especially the rose fragrances. If I have to choose just one it would be Une Rose Chyprée because I like chypres.

  84. Carillon Pour Un Ange is my very favorite, and is truly addictive.La Maroc Pour Elle is my second fave. One thing they have in common for me: the first time I tried them, I was put off, and not sure if I liked them or not. I found them so compelling that I had to go back to them to try again! That is how the love began.

  85. I have not tried any Tauer perfumes but Incense Rose is the one I most want to try.
    Thanks for the draw.

  86. thank you posse and andy! my favorites are dark passages and laddm please forgive the typing i burned my hand.
    most want to try zeta

  87. My favorite Andy Tauer perfume is L’Air du Desert Marocain. There are so many good ones, but this is my favorite.

  88. I haven’t had a chance to try any of his perfumes but I really want to try Incense Rosé among so many others.

  89. Sotto la Luna Gardenia is the only Tauer i have experienced. great fun! thank you!

  90. L’Air du Desert Marocain makes me believe in the romance of perfume. It is like being transported to a different place and time.

  91. I’d love to try PHI – Une Rose de Kandahar (or any of his roses). Thanks for hosting Andy’s generous advent draw.

  92. My favourite Tauer is probably still Le Maroc pour Elle with a tie in second place for Lonestar Memories and Une Rose Chyprée. Thanks for hosting, and thank you Andy for being such a great Santa!

  93. I currently have an explorer trio of Maroc, L’Air and Orange Star. Also love Lonestar, URC and excited to try Carillon…

  94. I’ve never tried any Tauer scents! That’s why I need the Explorer set. They all sound wonderful… and I am growing tremendous respect for Andy the person, who is obviously an amazingly creative and generous person, based on the blog posts he’s been posting this month. I’d love a chance to try out the scents he’s created!

  95. I’m entering these giveaways because I haven’t tried any Tauer fragrances yet, but would love to. So many of them sounds interesting, not sure which one I’m most curious about. Maybe L`Air du Desert Marocain, probably one of the rose scents like PHI Une Rose de Kandahar (a pick that makes everything but unique, judging from above comments).

  96. The two I want to try most of all are Carillon pour un Ange and Rêverie au Jardin. And I suppose I should finally get around to trying L’Air du Desert Marocain, since it’s the one that brought Andy Tauer to prominence.

    Other than that, I’m also dying to try the all-natural lavender fragrance Andy Tauer created for Richard Lüscher Britos.

  97. SOoooo hard to choose, would so love to try Orange Star, but also love L’air du Desert! Thank you for including me in the draw!

  98. LADM is my favorite fragrance by Mr. Tauer. Would love to try Incense Extreme!

  99. It’s difficult to decide between Incense Extreme and L’Air du Desert Marocain which is my absolute favorite – we’ll call it a tie!

  100. It would be a tie between Orange Star (love its fizziness) and Zeta (sunshine!), although I am very eager to try Une Rose Chyprée. Thanks for the draw!

  101. It’s gotta be L’Air du Desert Marocain! Close second is Incense Rose, though. Thanks for hosting this!

  102. Pour l’instant c’est une rose chyprée mais je suis encore loin d’avoir tout testé ????

  103. It is amazing to read how my selection remains popular with so many others – L’Air du Desert Marocain.

  104. I would like to spray Lonestar Memories. I have a small vial to dab, but would like the experience of a LoneStar spray.

  105. My favorite Tauer (and one of my favorite perfumes in general) is Un Rose Chypree.

  106. I wear Eau d’épices a lot at this time of the year, but Zeta is the closest to my heart, with Carillon pour un ange (which, on top of I and as far as I am concerned, is the most beautiful name for a perfume ever).

  107. I keep oscillating between Incense Rose and Une Rose Vermeille – both are amazing!

  108. I’ve always wanted to try Zeta and Un Rose Chypree. Thanks for the draw!

  109. My favorites are Lonestar Memories and LDDM. I’d really love to try Sotto la Luna Gardenia. Thanks so much for the draw.

  110. I’ve only tried 2 and my favorite between them is L’air du Desert Marocain. There’s a LOT that I’d really like to try though! Thanks for participating!

  111. Thanks for hosting the draw! My favorite Tauer scent is still L’Air du Desert Marocain, although I love many of them. I am very curious about Rose Flash and Sotto la Luna Gardenia.

  112. good morning! thank youf for this fun draw. its hard to pick one up, L’Air du desert marocain, Lonestar Memories are my favourite all the time..but also curious in UNE ROSE VERMEILLE..never smelt..

  113. I love all of Andy’s roses. And I’d really like to get my hands on Rose flash. Thanks for hosting the calendar!

  114. I’m really interested in trying any of the roses. I’ve been wearing Rêverie au Jardin quite a bit lately.

  115. Hello Perfume Posse! I am late entering the draw today and it would seem one of the most mentioned scents is L’Air du Desert Morocain. It is the one Tauer that I own and absolutely love and keep it for special days. I love the dusty warmth that comes through. I am looking forward to trying the Gardenia and Rose du Kandahar and Lonestar Memories. My Christmas wish list!

  116. I have not tried any Tauer perfume. I would really like to try L’air du Desert Marocain and Incense Extreme.

  117. I love Air du Marocain! I initially didn’t like it upon my first try because of the cumin, but once the rose and jasmine show up, it was LOVE!

  118. I have only tried LADDM and it is beautiful. Thank you for the draw. ????

  119. I haven’t had the chance to try any Tauer perfumes so I don’t have any favorites, but I would like to try L`Air du Desert Marocain.
    Thanks for the draw!

  120. I love the roses that Andy’s done.
    Un Chypre , Vermielle ,and the incense one.
    I simply cannot choose just One!
    For where in that would be the fun?

    Andy thought this problem through,
    And figured out what to do.
    He developed the Explorer Set-
    So our variety needs would be met!

    Three fifteen mls should see you til,
    You know if it’s a won’t or will.
    And when upon a choice you rest,
    You’ll know you got one of Andy’s best!

  121. L’air du Desert Marocain is my favorite but I love Une Rose Vermeille too…I just blind bought Phi and I’m pretty sure it’ll be great!

  122. Love and own Une Rose de Kandahar! (also love Orange Star and Le Maroc pour Elle)
    Would love to be able to try the others…!

    Happy Holidays!

  123. Une Rose de Kandahar. I think. Something beautiful, but with a personality and quirkiness, that combines with my own scent to make something really unique.

  124. I love Reverie au jardin & zeta…………….they both seem to be much overlooked when people enthuse over Andy’s other masterpiece creations

  125. I would love to try the PHI, even though it is described as a rose for a non-rose lover. I am a rose lover in search for the perfect modern rose.

  126. LDDM might be too masculine for me,I am curious about the Maroc pour Elle.

  127. I have now tried every single Andy Tauer scent except for Rose Flash. I adore Noontide Petals, Carillon Pour Un Ange, Incense Rose, Une Rose Chypree, Orange Star, Vetiver Dance, and Eau D’Epices.

  128. My favorite is Incense Rose, and I woul love to try Phi and Eau D`Epices

  129. I own Une Rose Chyprée and love its complexity and staying power. I have also liked Noontide Petals and Zeta very much among the 5 or 6 Tauer perfumes I have tried so far. Would love to try the gardenia perfume and several of the older creations.

  130. My favorite is Phi Une Rose de Kandahar, and I would love to try Me Maroc Pour Elle.

  131. I am a fan of Andy’s roses- would love a bottle of Phi- Rose de Kandahar.

  132. My favorite is PHI, but LADDM is a close second and Pentachord Auburn rounds out my collection of full bottles. Next, I’d love a bottle of Une Rose Chypree. Happy holidays!

  133. I’d love to try Noontide Petals or Une Rose Vermeille. Also Pentachord Auburn and Phi.

  134. I’ve only tried two and would love to try more. Thanks for the opportunity!

  135. My fingers are numb from all my entries that I have put in for the giveaway 🙁

  136. Oh, there are some scents I have been wanting to try for years. Maroc pour Elle and L’Air du Desert Marocain come to mind. Thanks for the chance.

  137. Of those I’ve tried, I really love Le Maroc pour Elle, but I’d love to try Une Rose Chypree. Happy holidays!

  138. Merry Christmas everyone! I’m wayyy, too late to this party but why not?? (been down and feeling sorry for myself with a broken filling=PAIN=abscess=PAIN=have to have surgery 🙁 …) Anyhoo, I can’t comment on ANY of his scents, but have had my longings expressed to try them on “Perfume Fairy day”….I love being a part of this group and want to shout to my previos fairies a HUGE THANK YOU and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

    Julie L

  139. My fav is Incense Rose – but it was a grower. Now I cant get enough. It makes me feel so sophisticated
