The absolutely lovely, generous, sweet, talented Andy Tauer, in conjunction with Franco at Luckyscent wants one of you to have a bottle of his newest perfume creation, Orange Star. Just one of you, don’t hyperventilate yet.
Let’s go to the marketing materials:
A rich citrus fragrance with a clean orange flower in its heart. The natural essential oils of clementine and red mandarine render the fragrance all fresh and natural, and add to the unique vitality of the head notes. The citrus notes give room to lemongrass essential oil: With its unique hesperidic earthiness it bridges to the heart of the fragrance. There, a clean orange flower chord is central, with a hint of translucent violet flowers that support the vibrant and elegant heart notes. The base of the fragrance mirrors the vibrancy and clean lightness of the heart. The body of the fragrance is centered on elegant ambergris, with a hint of soft woods. It plays with a fine vanilla line, a hint of patchouli and is enriched with a drop of a natural resin from cistus, known as Ambreine.
This is one of those days when I’m super-irritated that we can’t get images to upload (BTW, we are going to switch hosts since they can’t/won’t fix this for us) because the picture of the new bottle design is so gorgeous. Cobalt blue, angular, really fetching. I’m loving the change. Any Tauer fragrance is worth sniffing, but this sounds so great, especially heading into spring/summer. I don’t have any to sniff yet (cries!!!), but you know as soon as I do, y’all will hear about it.
The official launch for Orange Star is at Luckyscent Scent Bar in Los Angeles on April 17 from 1-4 p.m. If you are anywhere near this, just go. Any event at the Scent Bar is worth going to, and I’m still waiting to meet Andy one day, so you’ll have my envy for that as well.
Samples and pre-orders for bottles will begin sometime before May 1, 2010 at Luckyscent.
Now, how do we pick a winner? Normally we just do a random number generator and then count down comments to find that number. I’ll do the same thing this time, but tell me about your favorite Tauer or if you’ve been so unlucky not to have tried one yet. Seriously, I am so jealous that one of you is going to win a full bottle of this!
