    Nice work chad! I'll definitely be up to comparing notes.
    Whats the deal with perfume shipped TO Australia these days? When I lived in Perth, i know there was a ban on fragrance being shipped OUT of Australia, but do they ship still in? Just wondering because I have a heap of minis that id like to post home to mum.

    Cheers re: the Siggy... this horde I cant bare the idea to live without! If you have a few faves of your own Id be happy to make you something similar. Just PM me.

    Well, for me it's L'air du désert marocain too. It's a perfect representation of wood warmed on the sun. Reminds me of Ambre Sultan of Serge Lutens. But L'air is more delicate and subtile on my skin.

    The second one would be Incense Rosé. For me it's very similar to L'air. L'air is a breath of hot wind in desert, Incense Rosé is a fresh swollow of oasis in the same desert. But it's still the same place in the same desert.

    I would not nominate any for the third place. Or just share it between the rest. They are all masterpieces, butI don't know if I would wear them.

    Dimitri, I think L'Air and Incense Rose are all you're going to need... but I could be wrong.

    Unfortunately, I missed the bunny contest but I did receive my SECOND free sample of Incense Rose, from Andy, over the weekend. Because of this thread, I decided to order a sample of Le Maroc and got Incense Rose as a freebie! Now, a part of me just wants to buy a bottle solely based on Andy's great customer service but we'll see.
    Andy's such a cool guy...

    I love Ambre Sultan so it looks like I must have LDDM a try!

    Based on all the recommendation thus far you must at least sniff L' air, Incense Rose, Lonestar Memmories and Reverie au Jardin.

    L'air as everyone said is amazing, smelling it go through its stages transports you to the desserts of morroco - I can really smell the heat in the sand.

    Incense Rose is also beautiful - it starts with a blast of frankincense and trailed by a well rounded rose.

    Lonestar Memmories is leather bliss

    Reverie au Jardin - some may not like this but I think you or your lady might enjoy it. I think this works well on female chemistry (not to say that this is a feminine scent). It is a beautiful interpretation of lavender with the Tauer twist. I personally love it and have received compliments on it - it works on Sydney's weather as well.

    I have PM you regarding posting items to your mom.

    I managed to order a sample of Incense Rose & Incense Extreme from Aus Liebe zum Duft (Lucky Scent - didn't seem to have Incence Rose yet) Can't wait to try that one. I read somewhere that Incense Rose uses as an ingredient, of all things, Texas Cedar. My parents happen to live in Dallas, Texas in an area called "Cedar Ridge" which has all these cedars everywhere and which, I might add, give off a wonderful, soft cedar scent. I'm really looking forward to sampling IR & IE!

    I love cedar. Open any cedar chest you come across and just inhale. When I was small I used to play in mine. My toy chest. Large enoung for 3 kids.

    Incense extreme is suppose to be very minimalist. It is a very high concentration of Frankincense oil, and that's pretty much what the whole fragrance is built around. I might have not liked it before, but recently I have developed an special appreciation for frankincense.

    Special stuff. One of the treasures of the ancient world.
    Favorite notes at this point: Sandal wood, Oud, Frankincense, Rose

    Of course I would have to say Lonestar Memories because I am the person who suggested the name to Andy.

    Of what I've tried - L'Air du Desert Marocain is the best IMO.

    Lonestar Memories is my choice. L'Air lacks any sillage on my skin, and longevity is average. It smells good, but not as good as Lonestar in my opinion.
    I'm not a fan of Tauer's work, I like some of his frags, but I think i'd only buy Lonestar, maybe L'air.
    ... And do me a favor - don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired.

    I only tried four of his work, L'Air du Desert Marocain, Lonestar Memories, Orange Star, and Incense Extreme. My vote is LDDM. Incense Rose and Le Maroc pour Elle are on my sample list.

    L'air brought tears to my eyes, too. But why does every perfume have tar, tar and yet more tar!!
