Tauer Incense Rose is a mysterious fragrance built around smoking frankincense, with rose and citrus notes, and dark balsamic resins. Opening with rose petals from a dark and spicy rose, the natural bergamot and clementine essential oil, together with just a hint of cardamom, play there with the natural rose absolute from Bulgaria. The fragrance is lifted by orris notes, rendering it vibrant and clear. At the same time it is dark and rich, with castoreum and woody notes playing on the skin. It is the Texan cedar wood, vetiver and the balsamic, dark and mysterious notes of myrrh and patchouli that are all dancing with the incense. This natural frankincense is softened by balsamic labdanum and ambrein. Made in Switzerland.
Editor's Notes: Nothing comes close to the staggeringly tingly work of Tauer’s Incense Rose, featuring a well played out luminosity against a dark masculine resinous background - like fluorescent fireworks in a black sky. Filled to the brim with sparkle, in my mind this is Tauer’s masterpiece.
