    I'm bemused by all the raves about this frag. I thought it was a sad, watery Timbuktu wannabe that disappeared in 30 minutes. I'm honestly shocked by all the talk of 12 hours longevity. Are we talking about the same fragrance?!?

    No... No... Mr Strong no here.

    Genre: Woody Oriental

    L'Air du Desert Morocain opens as a very heavy amber and honey blend, quickly joined by some sweet citrus and a beguiling touch of smoke. Over the first few minutes the honey and amber settle into the background while the smoke intensifies and a very well-rendered tobacco note steps forward. The citrus persists for some time, like a cool breeze that lifts the composition and keeps its sweetness from from becoming ponderous. Some incense pushes its way forward over time, while the sweet amber resurfaces, and then grows more and more dominant. The drydown is sweet, smoky amber and persists for a long time.

    This is a complex and impressive oriental scent that will appeal to lovers of the Serge Lutens line. While it's individual notes and tone recall such Sheldrake/Lutens classics as Ambre Sultan, Chergui, Arabie, and especially Fumerie Turque, it's not derivative of them. In fact, it's better balanced and quite a bit lighter, which I think makes it much more wearable. A very fine scent.

    Andy Tauer - L'Air du Desert Morocain
    I once tested all of Tauer's perfumes in one go and was sick for 2 days after that; I call it the Tauer's stress-syndrome now... All his perfumes have a sort of chemical sharpness to them, which I guess I am allergic to - so smelling this isn’t an easy task.
    L'Air smells like pepper, frankincense, cederwood, styrax, myrrh, labdanum and vanilla mixed down in a slobby fashion where no note climbs up the stage and shows its true character - instead all the individual qualities of the notes get snowed under in a kakafonie of smells that only get to sing in a clear and clean tonality in its late dryout. Still - just smelling some good quality frankincense sorts out a much better effect then smelling L'air, in my opinion. I’m gonna try to scrub this of my hand now with some similar smelling handsoap... I feel Tauer's stress-syndrome taking control of my body now; making my nose, head and eyes hurt and ache, increasing my hart-rate and letting my right-leg nervously shake in a uncontrollable way...
    Still in the mist of this all, I can smell that Andy Tauer put his very best in this one - so I hope that there are many people out there that are able to like this perfume. Andy Tauer deserves his succes.

    One of the very best incense orientals out there, this mix of myrrh and frankincense will have you believing you are sitting in an orthodox Christian church on Easter Sunday. Very rich, very opulent, wonderfully dense and long-lasting. Odd that these two ingredients aren't listed in the official note profile, but I smell nothing else. Could it be that the ingredients listed are blended in such a way as to "suggest," rather than "be" that myrrh/frankincense blend???

    Turin got it right this time with 5 stars and an "incense oriental" description.

    A great incense, a great oriental, a great scent!

    L'Air du Desert Marocain (“LdDM”)


    LdDM is by no means a light scent, but its predominant amber comes off as lightly done, non-syrupy. A dry cedar accord plays a distant second fiddle and subtle kitchen spices help out as well. There’s also a low-key tar note which is perhaps responsible for the smoke, leather, and/or petrol some may notice, but this is far from overbearing. I consider it non-floral. Altogether LdDM can come off heavy, most certainly so if over-sprayed.

    LdDM’s not a strong scent but it’s no slouch. If you're not into dusty, dry, orientals it can easily be too much. 3-4 sprays and it’ll last forever, settling in as a skin scent after 8-10 hours. I like LdDM most in cold weather under, around, and about thick clothing. It sits on my shelf alongside the likes of Heritage edp, Elsha 1776, L’Homme Sage, Nemo, Etra, Bulgari Black, and the current Or Black, all of which share various aspects including weight and feel, in a general sense.

    On top of all this, it's kind of groovy when the artistic efforts re name and scent match up so well. That’s right, groovy.

    Not for everyday wear but one of my favorites for intimate settings. A scent worth the price and I'd love smelling this on a lady.

    I'm 51, for reference and I’m talking about the 50ml blue star bottle here.

    Fin 2/22/14.

    What can I say about this stunning fragrance?!
    The smell? balance of the notes? quality? projection and longevity? the price for a niche fragrance?
    Everything is just perfect.
    The opening is a warm and resinous smell with lots of spices and woods and some sweetness.
    Looks very busy but because of great balance of the notes it's not potent or cloying at all!
    The amber give it a sharp but at the same time smooth resinous smell. you can smell spices from caraway and coriander and also cedar wood that all together give the scent much more depth and character. there is some sweetness too to tune down and balance all these brutal notes even more!
    After a while and in the mid, there are just a few changes. the woods a spices become stronger and that resinous amber settles down a little bit!
    The smell is very beautiful and charming.
    In the base you can smell more sweetness beside all the notes.
    The sweetness is vanilla that has a warm and honey sweetness feeling and there are still smell of woods and spices in the background.
    Very sensual and yummy scent.
    Projection is very good even in the base of the fragrance and longevity is 12+ hours on my skin and sometimes even 24hours! just amazing.
    One word to describe it : "ART"
