L'Air du Desert Marocain is the scent of desire, inspired by the fragrant world of the Maghreb desert, powerful, sensual and pure. It's a dry, resinous cedar scent, rounded out with rock rose and jasmine, and hints of typical Moroccan spices such as coriander, cumin and petitgrain. A unisex scent, the cedar and vetiver base notes hover over a fine amber background. We are in love with this exotic beauty by Swiss perfumer Andy Tauer.
Au Coeur du Desert is a luxurious extrait that uses higher concentrations of the keynote ingredients that gave the original L’Air its soul: coriander, cumin, patchouli, cedar, ambergris, and resin.
Au Coeur has a smoother quality of patchouli, warmer woods, and a higher dose of ambergris, its salted golden warmth throwing all the other notes into stark relief. In terms of texture, Au Coeur is dense silk to L’Air’s smoke.

'It's the scent of a solitary rider, wearing old jeans and leather jacket, after a long day on the horse in the dry woods, preparing his coffee on the open, smoky fire. I want it to be fresh and light, yet lasting and powerful.... When I created this fragrance, I wanted it to be true and unique. I wanted it to be rich and lasting. I had a vision that was guiding me, a picture of a wide land in my mind that I tried to bring to live. It is my pleasure to share this picture with you.' -Andy Tauer
Andy Tauer's new creation, Incense Rose, brings that feeling of awe and wonder into our lives. Built upon the contrast of fiery frankincense and sweet rose, of masculine and feminine, of night and day, it is a mesmerizing blend, deep and sensual. Citrus notes and a hint of cardamom lend the rose a ripe, spicy quality, whereas orris gives the scent an effervescent, sparkling feel. The woody and balsamic notes of cedar, vetiver, patchouli, myrrh and labdanum are rich and dark. They both deepen and soften the other star note of the composition, the smoldering frankincense. Full of character and darkly seductive, Incense Rose will be irresistible for the lovers of incense genre and fans of sumptuous, resinous blends.
Phi is a luxurious scent, inspired by a natural extract of roses produced in Afghanistan's rose region, Nangarhar. This rose oil is extremely rare and of highest quality. Inspired by these roses, growing in a dry and rough land, Phi is a rare gem, complementing contrasting lines, rich in natural raw materials that add depth and authenticity. Due to the limited amount of the rose oil, Une Rose de Kandahar is not guaranteed to be available all the time.
The scent starts with a rich fruity line of apricot. An all natural apricot extract with its surprising richness enchants and blends into a stretch of cinnamon and hints of bitter almond, softened by bergamot essential oil. These spices lead over to voluptuous roses in the fragrance heart: Extremely rare rose essential oil with its unique scent of spices, plums and flower petals blends into rose absolute from Bulgaria and hints of Bourbon geranium. The rose petals melt on the skin into a dark tobacco fond, built around an amazing absolute of dried tobacco leaves. The animalic, leathery and woody tobacco opens the ground for a generously dosed layer of patchouli in the base of Phi. Here, woody and gourmand notes melt into hints of animalic lines. Vetiver, vanilla and tonka add richness and brilliance. A generous dose of exclusive musk and ambergris round the body of the fragrance and encircle the roses.
