    accd definitely better and worth the extra. lddm is a bit rough round the edges while accd is a very refined composition.

    ACDD was stronger in my view, but practically identical.

    L'Oudh is the jewel of Tauer's line as far as I see it, but definitely not for everyone.

    The solid perfume looks interesting. Never got round to sampling Tauerville but I'd definitely be tempted to look in to those if you're also a fan.

    Now that I've tried Au Coeur du Desert and worn it a few times, I'm so frustrated. This smells great, is long-lasting but hardly projects. Why????

    When my wife wears ACDD, I can still smell it when I'm sitting across the room from her 8 hours after application. I've always found it quite loud.

    How big is your room?

    To be honest, that sounds like quite a bit of exaggeration.

    P.S. How many sprays?

    I voted for LDDM just because it's a tad bit more interesting and not so quite so linear as ACDD. But I'd love to have ACDD, too!.

    Not a huge room, sitting about 6 feet away (couches facing each other).

    I just re-purchased LADDM this week because my original bottle is almost empty. I tested Au Coeur du Desert and considered it, but ended up sticking with the original. I prefer LADDM's ruggedness. Besides, it's a classic!

    Seconding ACDD as a moderately loud and very longlasting fragrance. Last wearing gave me 52h of longevity (! - and yes, I didn‘t shower ). The few people I met then asked me about my fragrance, even 10 hours after application.

    Before I got my sample, I didn‘t think I‘d love it even more than LADDM. The dryness and sharpness of LADDM is what I love aboit it, not the ambery drydown. To my surprise, I found these in ACDD also. It‘s not a tamer, less sharp LADDM, but a more persistent, less sweet one. Switching vanilla for resinous notes in the drydown is a stroke of genius IMO. A 10. I‘m getting a bottle.

    I own and love them both. In the winter of 2020/2021, I wore them almost every day.
    I think LDDM is the better composition, with more notes & nuances. ACDD is somewhat a stripped down version, more specifically the top notes (and some middle notes) are stripped down and the orange note is most prominent In the top.
    I think the concentration is higher in ACDD too (Hence the price increase). Fewer notes but at higher concentrations.

    As to which is better? Flip a coin. I’m with diamond joe- It changes back n forth every time I wear them. I’m happy to have both.
    If I had to only have one.... probably LDDM.

    I too flip back and forth between the two, but over time my preference is for LADDM - its brightness, edges, and the note balance.

    LADDM is my preference. It just performs better for me. ACDD comes off just flat on my skin.

    I voted 'Both!" but I have a very slight preference for LADDM. I think.

    L'Air du Desert Marocain by a mile. A very long mile.

    I get coriander, not cumin, from LADM. It's like when you heat coriander seeds in a pan.

    Love them both, but LADDM has the slight edge for me.

    This. I agree they are both great, but if I could only have one, I would take Au Coeur du Desert. It smells a little fuller and richer to me as well.
