    Andy Tauer - L'Air des Alpes Suisses
    The head notes are fresh like a breeze from treeless mountain summits: rough granite ground, the cool air from the glacier, and bitter alpine herbs. The heart notes are fresh, green with hints of spices. Floral delicacies such as the red alpine lily bloom on lush meadows, powdery, spicy, green. The body notes are inspired by alpine forests on cliffy slopes: the woody warmth of timber, larch and beech, with the sweet amber perfume of dry earth in the sun.

    Inspiration
    When I find time, I love to hike in the mountains. Starting in the valley, with its lush green meadows, the dark fir forests with the perfume of warm amber. L’Air des Alpes Suisses is inspired by these moments, green, fresh and ambery. It is a perfume that evokes my memories of wonderful days in the Alps. The higher you hike, the more you wander to open space, with wild flowers blooming in a short mountain summer. The herbaceous, spicy perfume of the alpine grassland, with hints of lily and orchids, mixes with the bresh breeze from the rough mountain summits. L’Air des Alpes Suisses is an invitation to explore this wonderful scenery.

    The Alpes
    The Alps are the highest and most extensive mountain range system that lies entirely in Europe, separating Southern from Central and Western Europe and stretching approximately 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) across eight Alpine countries (from west to east): France, Switzerland, Monaco, Italy, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, and Slovenia. The mountains were formed over tens of millions of years as the African and Eurasian tectonic plates collided. Extreme shortening caused by the event resulted in marine sedimentary rocks rising by thrusting and folding into high mountain peaks such as Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn.

    Mont Blanc spans the French–Italian border, and at 4,810 m (15,781 ft) is the highest mountain in the Alps. The Alpine region area contains about a hundred peaks higher than 4,000 metres (13,000 ft).

    The altitude and size of the range affects the climate in Europe; in the mountains precipitation levels vary greatly and climatic conditions consist of distinct zones. Wildlife such as ibex live in the higher peaks to elevations of 3,400 m (11,155 ft), and plants such as Edelweiss grow in rocky areas in lower elevations as well as in higher elevations. (Source: Wikipedia)

    L’Air des Alpes Suisses comes as Eau de parfum, it is unisex and totally wearable all day and all year long.

    L’Air des Alpes Suisses builds on highest quality ingredients. Various accords play with the theme of hiking from the valley with its little villages up to the land of ice and snow: The woody accords are constructed on notes of amber gris, tonka, fir and birch tree and dried needles, flowery notes of lily and orchid balance the spicy orchestra with notes of wild thyme and basil, rosewood, nutmeg, mountain lavender and a dash of lemon balm.

    Thanks for the news. The description sounds great, and the idea seems more original than I've seen in quite a while. Hoping it doesn't lean too bitter or masculine for me.

    Great news. I had long hoped he'd do a series of "L'Air de" environmental scents after Marocain. This one sounds right up my street.

    Appreciate the info on this.

    Well, if he captures any of the actual freshness and beauty of the air in the Swiss Alps, then this will be my new favorite.

    If it smells as good as it sounds this could well be my first Tauer full bottle purchase.

    As long as it doesn't contain an overabundance of his favorite aroma chemical, I'll be interested.

    Gosh, I hope it turns out to be a big success.

    I met Andy once when he was traveling incognito, and it's like people say : He's such a great guy.

    I'm really looking forward to this one! I'm imagining the Tauer-style ambergris with pine will be really magical. Fingers crossed. (Wallet disagrees)

    I presume that, at the very least, there was a fake mustache involved (over the top of his actual mustache/goatee).
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    He said the official launch date was Sept. 15, so I’m sure it will be on his site after then.
