Reviews of Lonesome Rider

A semi-sweet, yet dry, animalistic leather, iris, incense and vetiver that lays softly with a restrained application. The castoreum in the base makes this smell closer to newly tanned leather than the worn out seat of a tired Lonesome Rider, and that's probably a good thing. In fact LR reminds me of a leather that's been rubbed with linseed oil, or something of that nature. It's closer to the smell of a new saddle than a worn one IMO. The iris opens prominent then fades to the incense and leather, drifting in and out with a dry rose through middle background and giving way to a salty vetiver in the dry down. I personally think this is a very artistic fragrance, and trademark Andy Tauer. Good longevity, but I advise caution with the sprayer or it will overwhelm you and anyone close by. It's potent, high quality stuff. I really like this one a lot and could consider it bottle worthy. Thumbs high from me.

Another Tauer that pairs too much longevity, too much sillage, and an insipid, caustically tart/synthetic core that really leaves one feeling lonesome, since it's so hard to stand next to anyone wearing this.

If you know its predecessor, Incense Flash, which is basically the prototype or base structure here, but refitted with "leather," then perhaps this is for you. Like its forebear, Rider is equally headache inducing and caustically overbearing. It is somehow too tart, too thin, too bright, and too much while stitching together some saddle of pleathery, vinyly tannin.

I cannot wear this and unfortunately it's durability resists scrubbing. It's cloyingly longlasting and incredibly protrusive with its sillage. I understand why people love this (and Incense Flash), but if you're looking for something that ranks a sublime confidence paired with bold vision, Lonesome Rider is merely drifting out from the sand dunes of an empty, dystopic, alkaline desert.

Mysore sandalwood, frankincense, dry rose petals, vetiver & pepper are pulverized and the powdered mixture is sprinkled upon burning coal.
The aroma from the fumes attained as described above is the opening. Your cotton shirt & leather jacket catches the aroma of the fumes and that is the dry down of this fragrance.
This is the fragrance that captures middle eastern vibe perfectly.

Projection: 8.5/10
Longevity: 10 hours

Smoky, woody, leather reminiscent of Royal English Leather. After a while the rose and iris enter the picture and then the sandalwood and ambergris give it an out-of-doors quality. Very nice. It's a good option for those who don't want too much rose.

From the name one would expect another challenging tperfume like Lonestar Memories. But it is not. It is a very dry, slightly smoky and phenolic leather, but overall clean and somewhat fresh. There are hints of the West, but just hints. As it goes, one realizes that this is actually closer to certain tyes of vetiver (Indian ocean?), that have a woody, smoky aspect.
