Andy Tauer talks (and draws) about Fruitchouli Flash.
I am on record, here and elsewhere, as hating winter. The forecast for this weekend — snow, snow, and then more snow — just adds insult to injury. I’ve mostly managed to avoid the winter rotation in our seasonal Top 10 lists, but I did get stuck with it back in 2011, and reviewing that list, yes, I could easily go through the winter with just those 10 (and I am convinced I could make it through any winter with just Fendi Theorema, if I had to).
To avoid repetition with my 2011 list and the winter lists we’ve done since, I decided to come up with a cold-weather wardrobe based solely on newer fragrances…and then once I’d decided on my 10, I realized, too late, that this post is essentially an abridged and annotated version of the Best of 2015. So much for good intentions. If you have some new ideas for winter, do comment! And do check out the lists at Bois de Jasmin, Grain de Musc and The Non-Blonde…
....Kalyazin, who gets the Tauerville Flash scent from the Tauerville Avent giveaway. Congrats!
December 1st…it’s time for the annual Tauer Perfumes Advent calendar! Andy Tauer is doing things a little differently this year because sometimes, yes, there are more important things than perfume:
I decided that I will not do a draw for fragrant goodies every day during the advent days Dec. 1- 24, but that I will also do some charity and that I will invite my readers to do the same. You know: What we experience these past few weeks/months/years is – I think- an epoch-making change, and maybe an invitation to consider relooking at some things.
But there is a prize today, and we are very pleased to host the first draw…
