    Default When do you wear Tauer's LDDM?

    Hey guys,

    Seems like a dumb question but I've heard many say that seem to have problems finding a time, place or event to wear this fine scent...Wanted to get your thoughts on it....

    I wore it yesterday to work. I put it on about an hour or so before I went it, two spays.

    Underwater or in a force 9 gale. I had a sample of this once. I found it impossible to wear in any social situation.

    I would feel comfortable wearing it to the office as well as a formal social function.

    When I had my small decant I used it at the weekends or when I was out and about by myself. It's too powerful for me to wear in a office or social situations as it's just to distracting. Love the scent though.

    It is an excellent scent for days at home or during weekends when you just want to relax, but it can also be worn lightly for social gatherings in the fall and winter.

    |LOL - Underwater as in spray on skin & go into the water or spray on water & jump in - some clarity will help FSU...

    I wear LDDM with no issues to any occassion / work / party etc etc - huge compliment getter - go light on the trigger though, max 3 sprays.

    It's potent, but not offensive. Some scents are offensive even when weak.

    So, I think this can be worn anywhere any time - as long as you go light.

    Big compliment getter for sure.

    I don't think it's got a designated time/place but it might be cloying in the middle of summer heat. As badarun pointed out, you have to go kind of light on it though as it's brutally strong.

    I've been on the fence on this scent for some time now and can't quite figure out why. It's the only Tauer I actually seem to like, but very dependent on mood.

    There were no problems wearing this at the office. Nothing but love from the surroundings! But as mentioned above it could be a good idea not to apply it right before going to work.

    Re masculinity, it's a deep dark amber with smoke and resins, a touch sweet, and with the typical dry flinty "Tauerade". More stereotypically masculine, but perfect for a woman too.

    Now don't take my response as if an Aventus fan wrote it - but, the first time i wore this to work, a director from another city visiting us, came by & we were introduced. She hung her jacket next to mine & we went thru some discussions for abt an hr or so. When leaving, she picked her jacket & put her nose into mine - i am not making this up & I'm not substituting Aventus story for LDDM - she turns to me & has this really peaceful & happy smile (enlightenment?????) & said WOW, that's the best I've ever smelt a parfum!

    All this with 1 spray of LDDM to the back of my neck...To me, one of the best release from Tauer.

    I totally understand your question, as I figure that you are gauging and obviously will make final determination in your own and you will conclude which time is the best due for LDDM to be worn and IMHO it is when your in the mood for it!

    btw, I have a 10 ml decant of it....

    I agree, Tony...but this thread was more of a curiosity thread....I have seen LDDM on basenotes for years and quite a few people kept saying how they could never seem to find a place to wear this one, so I just wanted to know why or where people actually ARE wearing it...I will personally wear it to work because I love it and I actually learned on this thread to go lightly on this one which I normally DON'T do....But I did this morning....

    When worn lightly (2 sprays max for me), I feel comfortable wearing it anytime and anywhere. Absolutely one of my favorite fragrances....from beginning to end.

    This has been one I have wanted for a while. Back a few years ago most Basenoters rated it very high I just don't hear about as often now.

    This was pretty much my experience.

    One of the few times I tried wearing it to the office it beat up the innocent fruity floral our IT lady was wearing while she set up my new computer and probably made her cough. That was with one spray under my shirt.

    Got an unused sample: frankly, I have no idea. I guess during wintertime in not very formal occasions, in which heavy fragrances are a no - no.

    L'Air du Desert Marocain is one of my all time favorites. I'd be a bit cautious about where I'd wear something like Tauer's Lonestar Memories... that sucker's not kidding around. But I find that LDDM is pretty easy to wear. In fact, the only time I wouldn't wear it is either on a first date or on an occasion when something else would work better (which seems pretty obvious). In other words, I have no reservations or hesitations about LDDM, and I've never gotten any negative feedback about it. I find it to be surprisingly versatile, both in terms of weather and activities. It's dry enough (dusty enough?) for summers yet rich enough for winters. I have nothing but good things to say about it.

    OH! Wait... I do have one negative thing to say about LDDM: The cap on my bottle doesn't fit properly. It's way whoa way too tight! It's so tight that I stopped using it because I was afraid I might break the sprayer off. TOO. FRIGGIN'. TIGHT. WHOA. The bottle is magnificent of course. LOVE those Tauer bottles. (if you happen to see this Andy... dude! Hook a brother up with a can that fits! Please?)

    As if I haven't made it clear enough, I think LDDM is outstanding. It truly is a work of art and I always enjoy wearing it.

    I'd wear it when I feel like it, but I dont like it. I don't like to wear strong amber.

    Great fragrance but I don't really recognize myself in it. And that's somewhat imperative if I'm going to wear a fragrance. Always a good thing to ask: do you really recognize yourself in the fragrance you're wearing? Most of the time it's probably no.

    In this case I think its because at the time it was popular, everyone got it, enjoyed it and moved on.
    Plus its been released a while now. Those same people are exploring other venues.

    yea, I agree...I wish they would either charge him or move on but I do understand there is a quarterback's livelihood and a potential "victim's" credibility in the hands of the State Attorney....If he did indeed rape her, then I totally support throwing him in jail and punishing him to the fullest extent of the law...I have no tolerance for that behavior regardless of how great our QB is or if he is ruining his chance for the Heisman...But I will tell ya, Tony, I have seen some very troubling conflicting information that really makes it look like a "witch-hunt" more than an actual rape....A lot of stuff you won't see on ESPN or ESPN.com which is pretty much crucifying him before they have heard and seen all the evidence...A lot of stuff that just doesn't make sense to me and if she did DELIBERATELY ruined a QB's reputation and ability to play in the national championship because she wanted to get back at Winston (because he had a girlfriend), I think she should EQUALLY be punished which should include jail time....You just don't do that kinda thing to people...If it was consensual sex, which I believe it was, then say it is...Yelling rape and it wasnt really rape to me is just as bad as actual rape...It's wrong and hopefully we should get an answer in a couple of weeks...Read some stuff on tomahawknation.com to get the OTHER side instead of relying on ESPN...The media hasnt helped the matter whatsoever....Just a suggestion...

    I know you weren't asking me, but here's my $oo.o2 anyway. Don't try to cash it in for more than it's worth

    They both wear like a Tauer scent, but I didn't find them too similar beyond that. I like Lonestar Memories, but I find it challenging to wear. It wears me! And I get the sense that it's disappointed. Perhaps I'm not badass enough for Lonestar Memories! I spent years living in Texas, so I definitely have lonestar memories, but they smell nothing like LM, other than the smoke. MMmmmmm... there was a barbecue joint near where I lived (OF COURSE!!!) and I walked past it all the time. Oh, the smell of hickory smoke in the morning. MMMMMmmmmmmMMMMM!!!!!!!!!! Anyway... LM is a like, but it's so challenging. LDDM wears like an old friend.

    Definitely not (actually, I struggle to think of a men's only sort of scent).

    I did own a bottle, and I liked it, but I had a similar problem - just never felt like wearing it. It is really distinctive and in your face. Finally gave it up.

    NO!!!! ...he says with a grin... Oh muh gawd, I would love to smell LDDM on a woman. It's neither masculine nor feminine, but I wouldn't call it unisex either. At least, not in the sense of walking the line between masculine and feminine. To my nose, it's unisex in the sense that it doesn't smell like a gender. I think it's marvelous, and somewhat mysterious.

    L'Air du Désert Marocain is a fantastic scent - I keep it in regular rotation.

    I agree with the bottle/cap issue - the cap's too tight, and the two little rubber bands that are supposed to keep it in place have gone loose on my bottle, as the cap just doesn't fit. Major design flaw, very annoying, they really should change that.

    I don't find LDDM particularly difficult to wear. I really like it and wear it to work whenever the mood strikes.
