This is a sensual yet elegant skin scent. With a name like Incense Extreme, I expected something loud with tons of sillage. However this resides quietly and tenaciously near the body. I am fascinated by Andy Tauer's signature openings that are scintillating or effervescent and seem to ride a vertical current straight up my nose. This opens with the same ride driven by a dry peppery …Read more

Notes: coriander, petitgrain, iris, incense, cedarwood and ambergris.

This fragrance opens with a cold-as-steel incense note enveloped in a sheath of spices and citrus. At first the fragrance is bitter and cold; only gradually - and just partially - do coriander and petitgrain soften this austere first impression. However, the scent truly changes once cedar and iris emerge, it becomes …

For the first half hour, this is pure incense. For the next half hour, cedre is more prominent and the incense takes second place. After that, it's pure cedre all the way. And it lasts for hours and hours. For some reason, Tauer perfumes don't develop well on my skin. This is more cedre extreme than incense extreme IMO and not complex at all. Not what I was looking for.

After Andy's last lavender thing that I hated, I was afraid to try another one of his creations. I waited some time before I got a sample of this and now I regret the wait. Much as I love real incense and incense inspired perfumes, I was getting tired of just about all of the ones on the market. They seemed to have the same notes and if I was forced to do a blind test I probably would have …Read more

In the Pyrenees, high up on the mountain, in the middle of nowhere, with nothing but the odd prehistoric grave or the ruins of a few hovels and a tiny church anywhere near, there is the ruined monastery of San Pere de Rodes. An enormous, imposing complex of buildings nesting just under the mountain top (they had to remove part of the mountain and build up another part in order to create a flat …Read more

This scent begins with a sharp opening but quickly fades to cinnamon and rubber. Whatever else is in this scent is overwhelmed by this "rubber" accord. After an hour, a faint greenish violet scent appears, yet confusing me further. Burning tires and violets? Did Luckyscent send me the wrong fragrance? Points given just for sheer strangeness.
