Zurich-based independent niche house established in 2005 by Andy Tauer, a self-taught perfumer with a chemistry background.
Two fragrances were introduced in 2005, Le Maroc pour elle and L'air du Désert Marocain (as of 2010, L'air du Désert Marocain was the bestselling perfume in the line). Lonestar Memories and Orris followed in 2006.
In 2010, the Tauer Perfumes line was rebranded and a standard bottle was introduced (see image above). In 2012, Andy Tauer developed Luckyscent Lys de Desert.
