Les Annees 25 Bis refers to the golden age of perfumery, the 20ies of the last century in Europe. It is a fragrance in grand style, with a complex composition with a long lasting development, employing characteristic natural extracts and rich resins. A fresh citrus blast shines with bergamot, lemon and sweet orange oil. This cologne curtain rises and a mouth-watering peach accord enters the stage. It is accompanied by a natural rose absolute, ylang ylang essential oil and vibrant iris root. It prepares the ground for the complex and luxurious base: benzoin, vetiver, patchouli, sandalwood, ambergris, musks and vanilla melt into a long lasting, exquisite skin perfume.
Editor's Notes: Les Annees 25 Bis opens with a concentrated dose of vintage syrup, speaking to those who love the giants of classic perfumery. The ambery peach note of classic Chypre fragrances (Mitsouko, Yvresse) is present, joined with the oily slick of bergamot oil, imparting a dusky glow. This transitions seamlessly into the powdery and subtle technicolour tones of rose and iris, evoking vintage Floriental perfumes (Nahema, Rose de Nuit). The base of this fragrance is warm and velvety in texture, with a generosity of ambergris that marks Tauer’s signature. Indeed, Tauer references his own works here, with glimpses of Fruitchouli Flash, Une Rose Vermeille, and PHI Rose all to be found. Moreover, the addition of vetiver and patchouli give this scent a dark core. A welcomed encore.
