Indie niche line Tauer Perfumes will launch Zeta, the first fragrance in a proposed series of vintage (specific harvest) fragrances built around fine or rare natural materials, next month. The series will be called the Collectibles. Zeta will feature linden blossom and is described as a “bright ode to summer”:
Linden shade in June-
sweet rose petals and the light
The notes include lemon, bergamot, sweet orange, ylang, orange blossom absolute, neroli, linden blossom, rose, orris, sandalwood and vanilla.
Tauer Perfumes Zeta will be available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum for around $150. (via press release)
Note: Andy Tauer of Tauer Perfumes discussed the development of Zeta in a series of letters to perfumer Mandy Aftel published on Nathan Branch’s blog; you can find the last letter (and links to all the prior letters) here.
Update: According to Andy Tauer, Zeta will not be a limited edition, but future batches may not smell exactly the same.
