This is one great, amazing scent at any age! Enjoy!
Hey guys I'm looking to buy my first niche fragrance and currently I'm going between New Haarlem and L'Air Du desert Marocain.
I just got a sample of Andy Tauer's Desert Marocain and its amazing, but I don't know if it would be appropriate for me. BTW I'm getting this primarily for my prom
I'm currently in high school and I've been wearing pretty safe fragrances such as Boss Bottled. Do you guys think deser marocain is a good frag for high schoolers?
Because I can see how some might see it as a more mature scent.
How would you categorize this fragrance? Sexy mature casual something along those lines.
Thank you everyone

High schooler?..........go with New Haarlem...
I like desert, but I did get a slight older man vibe to it which is why I'm hesitating to make it my first niche bottle too. I don't think it would be totally inappropriate, but New Haarlem sounds a bit more high school friendly.
Ooooo... I wouldn't wear LADM at school unless you want to draw attention to yourself. It's incredibly strong and stays on the skin all day. Maybe for special occasions but certainly not as an everyday scent.
Go against the grain and get L'Air du desert Marocain
It's cool you like LDDM, but I wonder if it's the right frag to wear to prom. It's pretty exotic but to the untrained nose it smells like a spice cabinet. You want your date to be attracted to you, and this scent can be potentially polarizing. Then you've got summer coming up and LDDM is a bit cloying in hot weather.
New Harlem for your purpose.
New Haarlem -- It should be perfect for your prom and you won't have to worry about your dance partner being offended by it.
Hmm I think I will just have to go with New Haarlem. Thank you everyone.
How does New Haarlem perform in hot weather? is it remotely wearable?
Look, se precisas gastar dinheiro numa fragrancia particular, tem bue' de otros perfumes mais melhores daquelle!
À l'air libre les oiseaux ont eux aussi le vertige (camille)
If you have sampled and like L'air du desert marocain and really like it then I think you should buy it regardless of anything. Don't buy something just to please people, buy something to please yourself.
I'd say in general, for prom, New Haarlem, no doubt.
However, in the hot weather it may be a bit much. If you're going to go with LDDM, be sure to spray LIGHTLY.
It's very strong, but that just means you get your money's worth.
You can`t go wrong with eny of them.. My personal Favourite is New Haarlem.
I just ordered a bottle of LDDM myself and it should be arriving today.
But I don't think it's a high school prom fragrance. New Haarlem is a much better choice. I would even think you're better off with something along the lines of Guerlain Homme or Ed Hardy's Love and Luck considering the season and the event. Millesime Imperial if you're going for something high priced.
Do I recommend LDDM? Absolutely. It's a beautiful, truly unique scent. But I don't think it's suited for the prom. I get a peaceful, calm, sensual vibe from it, on the mature side. I feel like proms have a younger type of celebratory energy, outgoing and festive, for which LDDM is not necessarily appropriate.
Look at my top 10 below. They are both must haves IMO. L'air is probably slightly more versatile, though; and would set you apart, so go with that one.
Current favorites_____Black Tourmaline_____Gucci Pour Homme II_____Memoir Man_____Tuscan Leather______Montale Aoud and Pine_____Sel Marin_____Invasion Barbare_____Tonka Imperial____Dior Homme Intense_____L'Humaniste____Santal 33_____Bois d'Argent_____Nio_____MFK Oud_____Lumiere Noire_____Bois d'Encens_____Cuir Ottoman
Can anybody shed any light on whether this is available in a bigger bottle than 50ml / 1.7oz?
I've looked on the Tauer perfumes website, which unfortunately will not ship to the UK, and range Les Senteurs in Belgravia, who only know of 50ml bottles.
As with most fragrances you can expect to get more bang for your buck by getting bigger bottles, which makes it more economical in the long term, but it seems that only one size is available?!
Cheers guys and gals.
I believe that a 50ml bottle of LADDM costs around £80 nowadays - the 100ml bottle used to sell for about £45!
Well Trebor, thanks for sugarcoating that awful news!!!
Appreciate the advice, and whilst I think LADDM is worth the current prices (i.e. it can stand shoulder to shoulder with the Creed / Amouage / Private Blend prices), I wish i'd have discovered it 5 years ago.
C'est la vie.
I've arranged a trip to New York in November.
Are Tauer perfumes carried by any of the stores in the US? Looking specifically for L'air du Desert Marocain, but would like to sample some others from the line too.
for the prom? New Haarlem.
proms do get warm/hot after awhile esp with all the dancing, so....LDDM might stop your chances of getting the ladies/guys/whatever you are going after just a thought.
New Harleem is the easy option.
L'Air Du Desert Marocain, the basenoter option
Othes are right, LDDM is outstanding but maybe a bit "too much" to use it at High School. If you want it for more special occasions, go with LDDM.
... And do me a favor - don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired.
Welcome to the Bwahahaha! era...
TUM TUM PISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
