    Default Lddm

    Just a random thought....

    If you own this fragrance or have a sample, try this:

    After spraying L'Air du Desert Marocain for about a half hour, breathe on the application point, then smell. Awesome, right?

    Please reply to share your thoughts.

    The Tauerade? dusty garage note is actually a good description. I feel this dry, dusty note in many of Tauer perfumes, even when they are in different styles, like rose chypree and orange star, where it is almost overwhelming to my nose. And you are right that if you don't smell the application point, it is less evident, though still there.

    But perhaps you are not talking about this. need to try ...

    For a moment I thought this post was the result of you engaging in your display name.

    I'll try it though.

    I didn't think much of this scent initially, but with time I have come to more appreciate the art of LDDM. Interesting approach to smelling this after drydown. Thanks for the insight

    "Tauerade" ...I like that.

    How unusual! You mean to exhale on the place where you applied and then immediately smell? Maybe I'm misunderstanding. I have LdDM, so maybe I'll try that.

    Still spending time with this one (got a sample from Luckyscent)...liking the Moroccan desert vibe thus far. The only neg is its versatility aspect. Don't see wearing this to work, church, party etc.. Seems this is one for "me" time.

    Ha! I do this with all of my fragrances (a closet app point breather)-- the heat and moisture bring out amazing results sometimes

    Currently testing this - amazing stuff. Would agree that the Cedar plays a key role. Almost an unsung hero, operating in the background, allowing the spicy notes to shine

    LDDM is one of my favorites. For some reason, I can't wear it very often, but I always enjoy it when I do.

    Andy Tauer is an amazing perfumer. I have a ton of respect for the way he works and runs his business.

    I don't like everything he's created, but i do love many.

    LDDM is not even in the Love category for me though. I NEED it. I have still the original plain bottle, a finished one from the pentagon packaging, a current from the pentagon packaging, and 1 from the new packaging.

    I will try your trick and see what its all about!

    ...the "new" packaging? What changed? God, I love Tauer's pentagon bottles.

    Literally just the packaging. Not the bottles. Its still in a tin, but its a very small square-ish tin now. Space saver.
    Comes sort of shrink wrapped done personally by yours truly as well LOL

    Really useful tin - I bought Rose de Kandahar after sampling both, but Lddm is on the list as well!

    I have done the exhale method on a number of different fragrances. Even after you can't smell the fragrance some 10 hours later...if you apply some hot breath to the area of application, the fragrance just jumps off the skin. Just did it with Frank 2 LA right now, pretty cool :-)

    I am wearing L'Artisan Piment Brulant and as I read your comment, I did an exhale on my wrist. Oh man, I had a few sneezes as the chili pepper got into my nose. I am high right now.....on pepper that is :-)

    Amazing perfume but unfortunately not versatile. I have been using my decant for years planning on buying a full bottle but I honestly know I'll have that decant for another 2 years or more.

    Actually I find it very versatile. Winter, fall, spring...day and night. Even summer nights. Yes the opening is harsh but it slowly gives way. Eventually the amber/ambergris base just lingers on forever. Plus there is some floral in the mid. .....imo

    Love LdDM too and wear it on workdays regularly. Definitely wear it more often on cooler days though. Tried several other Tauer frags that I didn't care for but LdDM is some kind of special.
