    Default Tauer Lonestar memories

    I am wearing it today. hmm is this what Garage and Nostalgia smell like?
    Rubber, heavy smoke, leather... the opening is atomic, I like it, it puts Bvlgari Black to sleep.
    Hard to wear though, I got a comment as soon as I arrived at my office , they simply asked me what I was wearing.

    This is the sort of fragrances that makes me love fragrances, brutal, different, challenging, addictive, surprising but perhaps... unwearable. This is the first Tauer I have ever tried but I am looking forward to discover more from this house.

    Wearing it can be a commitment. I think from across a room, though, it comes across as fairly restrained.

    Garage and Nostalgia are a bit different - they have more prominent rubber notes.

    Aaah, L'eau de Beef Jerky! I love it.

    Closest thing I know is Le Labo Patchouli 24, that also has an overdose Birch Tar.

    Oh and - a shameless plug - if you want to try more Tauers, you can swap some original Tauer samples with me for something you have.

    it has been 24 hours, I wore it yesterday and I sprayed in a paper test, I just reach to the paper and the fragrance still has a definitely "different industrial rubberish" note.
    I will not go as far as saying that I would like to buy a full bottle but I like it. One thing is for sure 9 out of 10 people (non fragrance lovers) will not like it

    I've come so close to buying a full bottle of this one on numerous occasions. Despite LM's being a fairly odd fragrance, I find it very comforting.

    I tested this last September. This was my review

    Lonestar Memories--Being a Texan I had hope. But this is not a good memory. It dries down to a tarish/dirt smell and starts as nothing good that I can explain. I don't get it.

    the more i think about the concept behind L'Air, Lonestar, incense rose etal..the more im drawn into it. it;s just like a movie. Tauer is doing some crazy stuff in his lab and im addicted to it

    I do like it, but I'd rather wear Patchouli 24 and Nostalgia. That's why I don't own a bottle.

    Actually, I can only really-really appreciate L'Air. I find the rest a bit mediocre and variations on the same rose / incense theme.

    I wish Tauer would go out of his way once and produce an aquatic or gourmand or such. Although Maroc pour Elle is very edible in the end. Smells like couscous or rice.

    This Tauer stuff is largely overrated. I don't like l'Air du desert marocaine and Lonestar memories is one of the worst scents I ever smelled. I just tossed a boddle of incense extreme and still have a unopened boddle of ADM in its originial package that I would gladly swap...

    I think that it's different than Garage and Nostalgia, in that the accords Lonestar Memories evokes are very natural smells: campfire, smoked and burnt wood chips (mesquite?), and then, of course, leather. Of the saddle leather variety.

    I think the problem that most people have with LM, is the close olfactory ties a lot of us have with these smells and smoked food (meat, etc).

    Of course, Patchouli 24 by Le Labo is much more straight up harsh, because it includes a synthetic rubber note in amongst the smoky tar and leather.

    Like I said in my review, Burning Barbershop by DS & Durga is also like LM - but LM is way more foody/smoky. Those who like LM but think it's a little too much should try the DS&D scent.

    nice one!

    Lonestar Memories is a nice smoky, saddle leather scent.....i think it's pretty nice. I think it is a bit too linear, and I don't find much complexity to keep me interested in it very long.....but it's a good fragrance.

    Nostalgia is very different to LM.......in fact, i can't think of any similarity at all....same goes for Garage.

    Tauer has a talent for creating very alluring descriptions for his fragrances. The description of L'Air is intriguing.

    Lonestar Memories was one of the few fragrances I went immediately from a decant to a full bottle. I took a complete opposite turn on Nostalgia, it being one of the few fragrances that I simply didn't like.

    I thought my description of L'Air was alluring too; a potato skin smeared with spices and a floral scented cleaning fluid, then left out in the desert sun for a few days. LOL.

    I'll endorse the above. Lonestar Memories could have been called Portehouse pour Homme. I like eating steak not smelling of it...

    One thing's for sure, it's pungent. I had to put my sample outside of my room, because I could still smell it (from the outside) and it was interfering with my being able to smell the other things I was sampling!

    And that's how I ended up losing it. I couldn't remember where I put it! Eventually, I went around the house, sniffing and found it in the hall closet.

    And in a 2nd post you said "different industrial rubbery."

    I deliberately didn't read this thread until I had tried my sample, which I am wearing today. This is exactly how it seems to me. Very rubbery, old-worn leather. At times quite sweet, at other times a bit smokey.
    Not my style of scent at all. I can't say I like it or would ever even try to like it.
    But it is different! Just that my taste doesn't match up with its profile.
    Glad to have had the experience, though.

    It seemed to have a bit of that L'air vibe to it, just not done quite as well. I'd rather wear L'air but wouldn't mind LM every now and then. I'd also like to sample the Tauer house a bit more, but haven't read anything that reaches L'air's reputation. I hope it's not a one hit wonder.
