Tauer Perfumes will launch three fragrances, Verdant, Auburn and White, later this week. They are the first in a new series, the Pentachords:
How many ingredients do you need to create a beautiful and distinctive fragrance? Andy Tauer answers this question with his PENTACHORDS line of perfumes. Every pentachord perfume comprises five notes only. Every note is one molecule. The reduction to the minimum demands for the most selective ingredients of highest quality. By removing everything that is superfluous, Andy Tauer creates a modern library of scents that is far beyond the ordinary.
Each pentachord is a melody that plays on five notes. The reductionist approach brings out effects that are extraordinary.
Verdant (shown) ~ "The lush green of ivy forests. It is the melody of dark green leaves with gleaming water pearls in the forest after a summer rain. The sweetness of damp earth melts into elegant suave leather. A fantasy of fine smoke and tobacco complements vibrant amber lasting all day long." In Eau de Cologne concentration.
Auburn ~ "The cupric warmth of cinnamon. Auburn is the melody of warm cinnamon in accord with a citrus tree in rich bloom. The softest sandalwood melts into dry amber and subtly adds depth to the perfume. A warm spicy tobacco closes the oriental round dance and starts it again." In Eau de Parfum.
White ~ "The clear melody of royal Iris. The exclusive fragrance of dried Iris root plays with silvery violet flowers in a white clean garden. This classic Iris with its crisp beauty is complemented by the warmth of dry wood from a rosewood tree. A hint of mysterious amber gris decorates it and adds an expensive note to the fine Bourbon Vanilla ornamenting the white Iris." In Eau de Parfum.
Tauer Perfumes Verdant, Auburn and White will be available in 50 ml, around $140 each. They will be exclusive to Campomarzio 70 in Rome until September. (via press release)
