It’s not a secret that we here at the Posse think Andy Tauer is pretty much a genius. I can remember the first of his that I smelled: Lonestar Memories, back at the old, tiny ScentBar. I was convinced that the person who concocted it absolutely had to be a Texan, so perfectly did he get the scent of the desert southwest.
In a way, Lonesome Rider revisits the same territory; it also has notes of sage, leather and tar, but also has ones of citrus, and flowers. While Lonestar could be written of as the scent of the cowboy by the fire, Lonesome Rider could be thought of the memory of his scent, still smelled on the skin of one who couldn’t leave, left by the one who couldn’t stay.
Lonesome Rider is available at Andy’s site, as a full bottle or as samples that at the moment are priced at a “pay as you wish” rate (with a postage fee of $4.00) or full 50ML bottles for $135. I purchased my sample from the site.
